call over to Samantha Agnoff from Syfy Publicity. Ms. Agnoff
you may begin your conference.
Samantha Agnoff: Great. Thanks, Shannon. Hello, everyone.
Welcome to the Haven season five conference call. Weíre
excited to have stars Emily Rose and Adam Copeland joining
us today. Season five returns on October 8th with two
back-to-back episodes starting at 10:00 Eastern on Syfy.
Weíve got lots to discuss, so letís get started.
Shannon, you can put through the first question.
Operator: Certainly. Your first question comes from the line
of Robin Burks from Tech Times. Your line is open, please go
Robin Burks: Hi, Emily. Hi, Adam.
Adam Copeland: Hi.
Emily Rose: Hello.
Robin Burks: Thank you for talking to us today. Saw the
first two episodes and they are really intense. A lot
happens. How are these events going to affect your
characters moving forward as well as the relationship with
Emily Rose: Wow. I was telling Adam earlier-- we were sort
of talking about how weíre having to brush off the old like
memory of what -- where last year was and for us because we
filmed it so long ago. But I think like I really liked how,
I donít know if chaotic is the right word, but thatís how it
felt to me filming it not necessarily the experience, but
the story of it, how you know we start this world of (Haven)
off in this sort of mass chaos.
And itís really kind of neat because instead of the chaos
like pushing people away, it's kind of, itís drawing them
together. Maybe with the exception I donít know of you,
Adam, of your character felt kind of the responsibility to
kind of hold it all together and you step into kind of this
new great role, obviously, with (Dwight). But I feel like
between (Nathan) and (Audrey) it kind of causes them to be
super close and, obviously, like I think that the town as a
whole is trying to band together to kind of get through
that, kind of, chaotic sense of disruption if that makes any
Adam Copeland: Yes, I think Ė I think the chaos you know it
lends itself to (Dwight) just trying to hold everything
together and in doing that ruffles feathers, ruffles the
feathers of friends, ruffles the, you know, the feathers of
not necessarily enemies but, you know, the Dukes of the
world. But at the end of the day, Dwight is always just
trying to keep the town together. Thatís really all the guy
So itís interesting, you know? There can be heads butting
because of that. It was interesting to the relationship of
partnership and, you know, the grand scheme of keeping the
town together can also cause butting of heads. So it was a
lot of fun for me personally, yes.
Emily Rose: You know, it was a fun episode. It was a cool
set and a cool kind of experience. You kind of felt huddled
into this place and it wasnít really, the (Haven) street.
You were you know inside the school so it was Ė it was a
Robin Burks: Also, this is it for (Haven), which is kind
of sad. How do you feel the season finale acts as a series
finale? Do you think that longtime fans are going to feel
satisfied at the end?
Emily Rose: Yes, I mean I Ė the cool thing about this
season, you know, kind of contrary to what was initially put
out there is that you know our planners are really planning
for it to be the end. We were, from the beginning, speaking
with (Matt) and (Gabrielle) about where these characters
would land we were treating the Ė the end was being treated
as a series finale. Itís always been in the plan.
So, I mean it was hard. It was a tough process because I
found myself being satisfied in a lot of ways and being sad
in a lot of ways and having to kind of examine (well) am I
bummed about this aspect because I just donít want to say
goodbye to this person, this character Iíve gotten to live
with so long. But I do think, looking back on it and being
however many nine months away from that experience of
shooting those final episodes, I really do feel a sense of
satisfaction and nostalgia when I think about filming those
last couple episodes for sure. I donít know about you, Adam
but thatís kind of how I feel.
Adam Copeland: Yes, I think you never absolutely, you know,
100 percent of the time get everyone to agree. OK that was Ė
that was perfect. Itís just impossible. Thereís too many
jaded people in the world. But I can say that it feels like
the knots were tied Ö
Emily Rose: Yes, there was good closure.
Adam Copeland: It doesnít feel like thereís loose ends,
which I think was important to all of us. From the creative
stand point, from the performing stand point, the last thing
you want is like, ďYes, but what about?Ē And I donít think
there is that ,personally.
Emily Rose: Yes.
Robin Burks: Well, thank you Ö
Emily Rose: I think Ė I'll say one more thing, I do think
thereís going to be fun speculation at the end. I think
every good show has a bit of that intrigue that they still
leave you with because at the core of our show is the
mystery. So thereíll always be things that I think will
leave the fans being able to talk and be like, ďWell what
about this, and what about this?Ē
But itís not any massive questions. Like I feel like itís
just more like the kind of questions you want to be thinking
about and leaving it up to the audience so that they can
kind of carry that journey on however they would like to in
Adam Copeland: Well put.
Emily Rose: Sorry, Adam.
Robin Burks: Itís OK, thank you.
Emily Rose: Thank you.
Adam Copeland: Thanks.
Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Jamie
Ruby from SciFi Vision. Your line is open please go
Jamie Ruby: Hi, guys, great to talk to you again.
Adam Copeland: Hey. How are you?
Emily Rose: Great to talk to you too.
Jamie Ruby: Iím really sad to see it go, I will definitely
say that. This is kind of jumping off of (Robinís) first
question and I donít know if you can add any to it. But I
was interested in the fact that letís just say for spoiler
wise that more people, obviously, become aware of the
troubles this season. Can you talk about moving throughout
the season how thatís going to affect the town in general?
Like is going to make their work harder, easier, is it going
to affect that part?
Adam Copeland: I think Ö
Emily Rose: Be aware Ö
Adam Copeland: DoesÖ
Emily Rose: No go ahead, Adam, sorry. Sorry, say that again.
Adam Copeland: Well, I think much to (Dwight's) chagrin it
definitely makes his job harder.
Emily Rose: Did you just say chagrin?
Adam Copeland: I did.
Emily Rose: Youíre an old man. He said chagrin, everyone.
Adam Copeland: At some point in this Iím going to get (humbridge)
Emily Rose: Yes.
Adam Copeland: A few whipper snappers.
Emily Rose: Oh God, youíre so goofy.
Adam Copeland: But I do think that this season definitely
just from my characterís stand point, well, from every
characters' stand point, it really pulls them as much as the
threads can be pulled. Thereís a lot that happens, thereís a
lot that goes on and thereís a lot to bottle up and keep
contained and is that possible? Itís just a volatile season,
which is great.
Emily Rose: And so is youíre Ė just to Ė sorry, just to
clarify your question too, is it about the awareness, like
the townís awareness of the troubles? Like are we trying to
conceal that or is it OK that theyíre out is that correct?
Jamie Ruby: I donít know. Thatís what I meant that the
whole town knows, but I didnít know if everybody knows that
or not, but Ö
Emily Rose: Well no, I mean itís a really smart question
because that is something that we kind of wrestled with
throughout the season. Weíre kind of like OK, you know, the
town as a result is dealing with the fact that these
troubles have, you know, we Ė the end of last season theyíve
come out of Duke. And so, itís kind of like, now itís not
like family secrets so much anymore, itís kind of wherever
the trouble crap landed if that makes sense.
Jamie Ruby: Yes.
Emily Rose: So, you got people dodging kind of bird poo
trouble crap falling from the sky. That's probably not a
good way to say that in an interview, (Multiple Speakers)
You just said chagrin and I said bird poo trouble crap. I
think Iím lower on the intellectual ladder here.
But, essentially, it is a Ė it is a town-wide problem now.
You know itís, I think you had all these secrets for so long
and the town felt like they were outcasts and had to keep it
quiet. But now itís like, like what (Adam) was saying. Like
the whole town is dealing with this problem together.
So we kind of wrestled with that. Obviously, (Audrey) and
(Ethan) and Dwight and (Duke) all know that the rest of
everybody doesnít. And so, there are still those secrets and
things but, you know, itís a lot of the town sort of
freaking Ė having a mutual freak out about, you know, what
does this really mean for us and what the heck is going on?
And, you know, that just the way you feel with your leaders
and being like, youíre not telling us everything. So, yes,
thereís definitely that.
Jamie Ruby: OK and then as a follow up, is there anything
that you two took from the set or were given from the set,
like a prop or you know something just kind of that you
remember the show with?
Emily Rose: I honestly think I had like probably a bunch of
stuff and I still have stuff thatís in (Shawnís) airstream
trailer up in Canada thatís supposed to come back. Like I
took -- I mean I took a lot and I actually had to ask for
permission for some of it, but I took the clock out of Haven
Harold ball pin. I took Ė I took there was a huge beautiful
painting of (Lindenberg's) thatís actually up in (Shawnís)
airstream Iím hoping to get. So, (Shawn) if you read this,
please I want my (Lindenberg) painting.
And thereís a chandelier actually that was in a very unique
room that you guys will see at the end of the season that
Iím hoping to have installed in my new bathroom. So, I did
take a lot. Oh I took a little shield off the wall in the
Haven ball pin that said, Ďour little darlingí which I
really liked. Yes I took a lotÖ
Emily Rose: Yes I really did. Because you know what I was
like listen, they know where to find it if we somehow get
pulled back, but thereís too much that Iím attached to here
and if I can have these little mementos, you know, and
everybody was really sweet about it. They understood you
know you spend a lot of time in Ė thatís your office, thatís
your world. Everybody can pack up their office when they
leave and itís hard you know not to think you donít get to
pack up. So, everybody was really sweet about what we could
Ė what we could have or take away.
Jamie Ruby: Great. Adam?
Adam Copeland: I was able to get (Dwightís) vest. I spent Ö
Emily Rose: Thatís awesome.
Adam Copeland: So, much time in that thing that I Ö
Jamie Ruby: You hated it.
Adam Copeland: And I did hate it and I felt I deserved that
just to be able to look at and go, I hated you, but I had so
many great times in you. So Ö
Jamie Ruby: But, I love you.
Adam Copeland: So itís one of those expositions. Another big
word, wow, Iím on fire.
Emily Rose: Yes. I have my badge, I have my badge and my
book and my pen. I have that too.
Adam Copeland: I have the badge and the chief (Hendrickson)
sign from the office door. And what else, what else, I know
there is one other thing. Oh, quite awesomely, a few other
guys from set gave me the slate from the last scene that I
Emily Rose: I know, I got a slate too. Yes, that was the
coolest part. The camera guy Ö
Adam Copeland: I know.
Emily Rose: Ö gave us those which was great.
Adam Copeland: Yes, yes and I wonít name names just so they
donít get in trouble, but they know who they are so.
Emily Rose: (Multiple Speakers)
Jamie Ruby: All right, well thank you guys so much. It's
great talking to you again.
Adam Copeland: Thank you.
Emily Rose: Nice talking to you.
Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Heather
McClatchy from (TV Goodness). Your line is open, please go
Heather McClatchy: Hi, guys itís great to talk with you
again. So going into Ė going into the final season, we see
all of (Audrey) and youíre now having to bridge two
characters so far. I donít want you to have to spoil
anything, but was it nice to kind of get back in (Audreyís)
skin and put (Mara) down for a little while?
Emily Rose: Yes it was Ė it was a little Ė it was a little
strange because (Mara) is so, you know, such a brat. Sheís
so fun to play, so I got to be so bratty. And then, with
(Audrey) I felt like I wanted to have some of those moments
but, you know, sheís just a little different in how sheís a
brat. But, donít laugh at that like you know what that
But there were some different really fun things. I got to
play (Lucy) a bit more this last season, which was really
exciting for me. And, then, obviously, (Audrey) even though
itís chaotic, something I really enjoyed about the top of
the season 5b was that she and (Nathan) were in a really
good place. And so it was kind of neat to get to play that
relationship out as what is it like for them when theyíre
banding together and theyíre not driven apart?
What is it like when they have to really work as a team, you
know, post all this relationship discovery that theyíve had.
So it was kind of nice to be like, what would it Ė you know
what would it feel like for them to be this you know working
partner couple in this town where crazy stuffís happening
where they get to just like kind of be together and enjoy,
you know, tackling things together as a team before things
got highly dysfunctional. So that was nice.
And then, also I got to do some sign language in the first
couple episodes with a really cool, great character. And so,
it was really, really fun to be able to do that. So, yes.
Heather McClatchy: Very cool. And for Adam, you actually
get to do an honest to God mic drop in the first episode
(Off-Mic). I just, I just (howled) about that. So for
(Dwight) to sort of take the lead and then, again, I donít
want to spoil it for folks who havenít seen the episodes,
but (Dwight) makes a pretty big decision that affects the
whole town and then sort of makes a big decision about the
police department and the guard. Can you talk a little bit
about that what it was like to have (Dwight) sort of really
assume a leadership role in such a very big way?
Adam Copeland: That was huge from a personal standpoint just
to be reading the scripts and going, ďWhoa, are you sure you
want me to do that?Ē There were moments where I was like,
you guys know that you wrote that for me, right? I just want
to make sure that's clear and so that was huge. What for me
it was I guess a validation or a confirmation like OK Iím
working towards a goal here and it must be working. So that
was great from a personal standpoint.
From a creative standpoint those are the things you want.
You just you want to dig your teeth into that and itís like,
OK three page monologue.
Emily Rose: Yes.
Adam Copeland: And we did a scene that was all action for
about eight hours of the day because it was (Shawn Filler).
So by the time we got to that monologue, I had done two
takes at it. So and I had a Ė I was the kind of thread
throughout the action scene too with all these different
players, so I really couldnít concentrate on it as much as I
would have wanted to. So it was a huge challenge and it was
great because it was so much fun.
Heather McClatchy: But, you killed it.
Adam Copeland: Well, it was fun you know and it was pivotal
and those are the challenges that I realized that I want.
Whereas you know in season two and old (Dwight) first showed
up, that would have petrified me. So it was great to grow
into that and be in such a pivotal spot to help kind of push
the story along. And it was also written in the script that
(Dwight) drops the mic. So it was actually written in that
Heather McClatchy: So for the full-effect very cool. And
with the series now done and, as you said, Emily, youíre
nine months out, do you have any favorite moments or arcs
that you can share with us or is it something that we
havenít seen yet over the course of the series?
Emily Rose: Favorite arcs and moments, I really enjoyed
playing (Lucy) this season. And one of my favorite, I would,
say creative actor moments was being able to work with
(Lucas) as a director on his episode that he directed, which
was episode 517. It was such a Ėit was just like a quibble
moment to watch something that your friend has wanted to do
for so long and then to watch him succeed epically at it.
Was really, really, really fun.
So that whole experience, (Audrey) was Ė how do I put this
without spoiling anything? Itís kind of a very heightened
surreal episode that isnít necessarily based so much on
reality. So it was really, really cool to watch everything
that (Lucas) had to prep and to be involved in that for him
to act in it. And then to be able to take directions from
somebody that you have such a great vocabulary with and then
be able to work so well with and watch the whole crew come
behind him and support him. And then also have some of the
most killer shots we had the whole season, done on his
It was just a really, really cool experience all around. So
that was really neat. And I think even like one of Ė again I
think even one of his good friends, (Tim) was working on
that episode as well. So it was just really Ė it was a
really cool, it was just really a neat experience.
And then I think also the end of the series, you just want
to do such a good job and you want to do your characters
justice and you want to do the story justice, and you want
to feel fulfilled and that people will feel fulfilled. And
youíre just so freaking nostalgic with everybody that you Ė
but that was a really sweet memory as well. So yes.
Heather McClatchy: Awesome, thank you. And, (Adam)?
Adam Copeland: Iím going to mirror a lot of what Emily just
Emily Rose: That you really liked playing (Lucy)?
Adam Copeland: I really enjoyed (Lucy).
Heather McClatchy: Can we get those out takes please on
the DVDs? I want to see that.
Adam Copeland: No one would want to see that.
Emily Rose: I wish he would have done that.
Heather McClatchy: Pictures or it never happened, pictures
or it never happened.
Adam Copeland: Well the Ė this final season was really such
a, as I kind of briefly touched on, a jump in responsibility
and character wise and there are so many instances where
(Dwight) has to basically address everyone. And those are
huge moments for that character, so I really remember those
Emily Rose: Yes.
Adam Copeland: Kind of the pressure cooker that that was
when you have essentially an entire town staring at you and
itís like, OK here we go. That and also you know the episode
that (Lucas) did (written by Shernold Edwards), it was Ė
what was interesting about it was, like Emily said, everyone
just wanted to absolutely hit that over the green monster.
We wanted a grand slam. No doubt this thing was going to be
awesome and top to bottom everyone put in, if there was
extra effort to put in, everyone did.
You know it was interesting, (Lucas) and I had dinner the
week before and he said, ďOK listen, Iím going to need you
to block shoot this,Ē which means basically thereís 8
scenes, 6 or 8 scenes throughout the episode, but they take
place in one room. He said, Can you just flip them all the
way through your side then weíll turn around and get the
other personís side? So what it meant was 22 minute takes.
Emily Rose: Thatís right, I forgot about that.
Adam Copeland: Yes and I said, yes got it no problem. As
long as I got the heads up and itís from (Lucas) you know so
you wanted just to be able to crush it for him. So that was
pretty amazing and an amazing memory and something that I
will always take with me no matter what I do.
And yes the end, you canít help but get sentimental with
every final (scene) and realize, oh wow this was the last
time that youíll see these two characters together. And
everything that theyíve inhabited throughout and gone
through throughout, this is the culmination of that. And
thatís a huge Ė itís a huge ride but itís special and youíd
like to think people will be watching and invested in
thinking the same thing. So those were all really, really
big kind of pivotal things that I remember.
Heather McClatchy: Awesome. Well, thank you guys so much
for your time.
Emily Rose: You also recommended that (Josh) Ö
Heather McClatchy: Iím sorry?
Emily Rose: I was just saying that Adam recommended the
(Josh Gerald) song that (Lucas) ended up choosing for the
end of the episode. And then we all got so (stoked) about it
that we just kept begging for that to get cleared and we
were able to contact him and that great song which was your
pick for it. And then (Lucas) so excited to make that happen
to the end of the episode.
So it just felt very collaborative and almost like well
like, I donít know how like those senior days at school when
itís like the last day of school but you get to goÖ
Adam Copeland: Yes.
Emily Rose: I donít know Ö
Adam Copeland: Yes, I forgot about that. Thereís this artist
named (Josh Gerald) who I was really into because my
fatherís day video had been done with his music as a
present. So I really got into him and I listened to this one
song (Ulysses) constantly and Ö
Emily Rose: Oh good.
Adam Copeland: I just said, yes this feels like if itís not
the end of the series it needs to be the end of this episode
and (Lucas) agreed. And then we all started listening to it
constantly. Keep an ear out for it in that episode because
itís such a beautiful song.
Emily Rose: Yes.
Heather McClatchy: Thatís awesome. Well thank you both so
much and congratulations on a wonderful series. Thank you
for sharing it with us for so many seasons. I have certainly
Emily Rose: Thank you.
Adam Copeland: Thank you.
Operator: Absolutely. Your next question comes from the line
of R.C. Samo: from Fanboy Nation. Your line is now open,
please go ahead.
R.C. Samo:: Hi, Adam. First of all Iím a huge, (Mark Snow)
fan, you know, missed you in the (WWE).
Adam Copeland: Oh, hey thanks.
R.C. Samo:: You know, first of all how has it been
transitioning from the instant gratification of being in
front of a crowd at Wrestle Mania to delayed gratification
of finding out how much we like the show six months later?
And for the both of you, do you think that, I donít know, a
year, maybe two years after the series ends would we get a
TV movie out of this?
Emily Rose: Actually, it hasnít been hard for Adam to
transition at all because every day he came to setĖ he
insisted on being cheered into the set the same way. You
know, I mean it was an exhausting way to start the day. It
was exhausting to put up all those bright lights and to get
face paint on. It was like so crazy. But I mean it really Ė
it helped ease him into it for sure.
Adam Copeland: I said listen if you guys want me to do this,
I need (inaudible joke)
Emily Rose: Exactly, exactly.
Adam Copeland: Well played. It was a Ė it was a transition
definitely. WWE and acting, theyíre both on the
entertainment tree, theyíre just different branches. So it
was just kind of getting accustomed to those small
differences that can be there, like you said [in the WWE, it
is] instant gratification you know right away if something
worked. Iím assuming like theater works.
This I really looked for a lot of confirmation from people
after I did something because I wasnít sure. It was new to
me and I wanted to make sure that I was on the right path.
So I would talk to Emily or (Lucas) or the directors and
just go, Was that OK? Like did that suck?
Because I donít have a barometer yet, I donít have my gauge
set for this. Thankfully by the end I was starting to
realize when I found what was working I hope. So that Ö
R.C. Samo:: (Multiple Speakers) for five seasons?
Adam Copeland: Like yes that was a little bit of
confirmation it's like oh they keep bringing me back so I
guess itís working. And when it comes to a TV movie as Emily
had mentioned before, there is enough questions that people
could take and run and make their own stories with these
characters after the fact that someone could do that one
Emily Rose: Yes and I think Ö
R.C. Samo:: (Multiple Speakers) fiction.
Emily Rose: Yes, I know totally. I just want to say though
because Adam wouldnít ever say this about himself but, as
somebody that was on the outside, I also kind of liked it
because I also to just view him through the friend lens. But
like I didnít ever really know or see anything of what he
had come from. Like I just you know I heard tales of it, I
And so, itís it was pretty cool though because he would just
be open and honest about just trying to figure out how is
this part working, is this working? And I think one of
(Adamís) best moments of the entire series happened this
season and that was when (Lee Rose) was directing episode, I
think it was 519?Ö
Adam Copeland: Yes.
Emily Rose: And there was a really big emotional moment and
I know that Adam was kind of, just like every actor is just
a little you know intimidated of, if thatís going to happen
and not really knowing what it will look like and not
wanting to force something but also wanting it to be very
real and authentic. And you know he did takes and was you
know was like, OK thatís great. And then they both just
agreed they were like, letís just do this you know one more
time. I think we can even go further with it.
And it was a really, really, really beautiful moment from
Adam and it was really great to be there and to witness it
and to watch have that personal acting victory that we all
have these milestones in our acting career where weíre like,
you know Iíd hope to achieve this can I do it? And to watch
him do that and itís such a great beautiful side of Adam and
something that he brings to the role, that it was just so
exciting to see that and to see that for him and to see
where he Ė how much he has even grown. I mean he has always
been fantastic but just when youíre Ė when you act beside
your friend for so long, you know exactly what they want to
work on or where they want to grow, or what they want to
And so to be there and be able to see that is always really
exciting and Adam does some great, great work this season
R.C. Samo:: Well weíre sad to see the show go but weíre
happy we got a chance to talk to you. Thank you so very much
and I canít wait to see you guys in your next project.
Emily Rose: Thank you.
Adam Copeland: Thank you.
Emily Rose: Yes.
Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Julie
Seaton from Scifi Pulse. Your line is open. Please go
Julie Seaton: Hi. Thank you both for talking with us
today. You know Ö
Emily Rose: Yes.
Julie Seaton: Iíve had, I had a question Ė a character
question kind of for each of you. Now, Emily, you touched a
little bit on this earlier, but youíve had to play several
different personalities during the course of the show, and
unlike some other (Sci-Fi) shows you didnít really have the
help of any sort of special effects make-up. How did you go
about creating these distinct yet connected personalities?
Emily Rose: Well itís always about the team that gets
assembled and communication. You know when youíre in theatre
school and you have a character class you Ė itís all about
responsibility lies on you and itís a lot about
experimenting at home and observing peopleís physicality and
getting to work on that. And whatís great about the TV and
movie industry is that, you have these professionals from
each of those fields to sort of help collaborate with you.
But itís hard too because Iím used to the theatre side of
like going home and working things out and trying to work it
out for myself and you have to be able to communicate that
to everybody. So first of all, I never when I signed up for
the show I had absolutely no clue that that was the
direction it was going to take and that I would get the
opportunity to play all of these people. So it just worked
out so great because thatís like an actorís dream to be able
to be shown versatility and be able to play with that on
But really you know in the beginning it was (Steven Lynch)
my amazing make-up artist and (Jojo), (Joanne Stamp) that is
Ėdid hair. And then we had (Steven) doing wardrobe as well
this year and he was Ė he was so great because he would
bring in a bunch of options for us, or for me wardrobe wise
and we would talk about. Iíd say like, with (Lucy),something
I really wanted her to have this like leather purse she
needed you know something for carrying and that really
helped me with my physicality.
And Ė but then also all the work, we actually had (Dorothy
Martin) who was doing my make-up this year, doing a bunch of
stuff for (Lucy) and some other stuff that I needed. And
just through the time of getting to sit in the make-up
chair, I just remember there was I think a couple more
things that we got to do this season and just sitting and
being able to watch the character come together. And then
watch (Steven Wright) come into the trailer and look at the
wardrobe and then to have (Dorothy) there and then to have
(Joanne) there and us together, look and kind of come up
with something thatís felt good for all of us.
And then to have the producers come in and I remember
specifically probably one of the biggest victories this
season when it came to characters was we worked on a
collaboration of a character. And I walked into (Matt) my
show runner and (Stephanie) and a bunch of other people and
just kind of walked in, just kind of was watching and they
kind of turned and looked at me and said hi to me as if I
was a visitor. And I remember inside going, ďYes.Ē
So it was really exciting because they looked at me and said
hi to me like a visitor and then they kind of looked again
and then were like, ďOh my wordĒ. So thatís always really
exciting you know when you can pull off that kind of
transformation and it just comes from having a really good
And then just a small Ė Iíll make this short but just a
small little story that happened this year -- right before I
played a lot of the (Lucy) stuff, I ended up really hurting
my knee. My (meniscus) and my (ACL) went out when I was on
set. And so I was having to figure out OK, how am I going to
cover this up because I still have to walk and I still have
to look normal and I have to maybe be wearing a brace.
But it was really cool because we were able to conceal but
yet that sort of leg thing really fed into my character and
it really worked. And if I wouldnít have had that injury at
that moment I donít even think I would have thought of half
of the stuff that I needed for you know (Lucy ) in those
moments. And so, sometimes the biggest mistakes can turn
into the greatest gifts if you let them do that so and
youíre open to it and you donít get all bummed and fight it.
You know so just a big collaboration of you know messy
creativity and then just throwing something to the wall and
seeing if it sticks.
Julie Seaton: Thank you. And for Adam, you mentioned a
little bit of Ė we talked a little bit about your personal
growth as an actor and also (Dwightís) personal growth since
heís been on the show. Now, when you joined the cast did you
know then that your character would become such an integral
part of the show and its mythology?
Adam Copeland: I had absolutely no idea. I think the Ė so
the story goes is that (Shawn Filler) some of the producers
and writers saw my retirement speech from WWE and said, ďHey
we can get that guy,Ē because they wanted to tie in from WWE,
Smack Down leading into (Haven) on (Syfy). So that was the
genesis of it but then you know I think it was just supposed
to be a one off episode, a few scenes and that was that.
Apparently halfway through the scene a call was made to LA
and said, can we write a bit more. And it became a slow
growth of four episodes to the next season, seven and so on
and so on to the point where with this last season, it
really it kind of blew my mind to be honest to be so heavily
involved with you know as I said earlier kind of really
pivotal moments for this series and the town and that
affected all of the characters. And so that was it was
pretty huge, it was a lot of fun.
And after the first season where I kind of just went, OK I Ė
you know this isnít a thing for me, I donít know what Iím
doing and I really enjoyed it. And from that point on like I
try to do with anything that I enjoy, I locked my teeth in
and just went after it. So it was a lot of fun to do this
and experience it and it really gave me another path and
another season in my life that I had no idea was going to
open up. So I can say that this show actually changed it
completely changed my life.
Julie Seaton: Thatís great. Thank you so much and we look
forward to seeing the rest of the season.
Adam Copeland: Thank you.
Emily Rose: Thank you.
Operator: Your next question comes from the line of
Courtney Vaudreuil from (Oh so Gray). Your line is now
open. Please go ahead.
Courtney Vaudreuil: Hi, thank you both for talking to us
today, really appreciate it. Iím very sad that the series is
ending. My first question for you is, are we going to see
this realm on the other side of the void?
Emily Rose: The realm on the other side of the void, maybe.
It would be interesting if we did wouldnít it?
Courtney Vaudreuil: It would especially if (William) came
back. Is there any chance of that?
Emily Rose: Maybe, yes. I donít know. I feel like the answer
to your question is disappearing into the void right now and
I donít know how to retrieve it.
Courtney Vaudreuil: It has been a long time, so I
apologize if my memory is faulty. I am getting old. But I
seem to recall that we were going to be seeing William
Shatner as part of the season. Is that correct?
Emily Rose: Youíre Ė yes youíre right.
Courtney Vaudreuil: And what can you tell us about that?
Emily Rose: Itís incredible, right? William Shatner on
Haven, I mean seriously we were like, I remember calling
my parents and being like, oh my word who would you just
like freak out to see on our show? So yes itís really cool.
He is really a neat guy and itís such an incredible thing to
get to work with him which I just never in a million years
thought I would get to do. So yes, weíre super excited about
him being a part of our universe in Haven.
And that you know if you would have told me that when I
started this whole thing I would have just been like, youíre
kidding me. And itís just really, really cool. Because
obviously Sci-Fi fans love him and heís a great actor and he
is a presence. He is just a presence and so you canít get
around that presence. And so when you need a presence like
that who better to call than the Shat, letís be honest.
Adam Copeland: Without giving anything away from the show,
it was just the fact that yes youíre standing there across
and sharing scenes with William Shatner. And I
affectionately refer to him as The Shat Ö
Emily Rose: I was going to call him The Shat, but I didnít
know if I was allowed to.
Adam Copeland: To which he referred to me as Babe. So but
Iím pretty sure he called everybody Babe. So I donít think
thatís a rare or anything but it was really amazing. And I
was super impressed with Ė you know this one day, my first
scene with him he had been in all day, I only had one scene
during the day. Youíre in every scene the entire day and
itís a lot.
And it was I think 7 or 8 p.m. by the time I roll in and he
was just on it and not dropping anything and rearranging
things and it still like just got to where it needed to get
to. So I walked away from that going, my God that guy is an
Emily Rose: Well and all of his down time in between the
scenes is memorizing the next two days you know worth of
material. Itís really Ė itís really quite a lesson in you
know in ego and professionalism to watch you know these
veteran actors do their thing. Itís encouraging. You feel
like you need to take the time to do that, itís encouraging
to see them do that.
Adam Copeland: Yes.
Emily Rose: And you keep at it, and you do whatever it takes
to be prepared for the next day. You donít ever slack off.
Courtney Vaudreuil: Wonderful. And Emily one last question
for you. Last year in our season call, Lucas mentioned
that you wanted to take the Bronco. Did he get to keep it?
Emily Rose: No he didnít get to keep it. We Ė it was
actually quite sad. I think it was probably the last episode
we were out in the parking lot, it was freaking cold, the
coldest I mean so freaking cold. And I was like Ė I said to
Keith Flynn, I was like, ďKeith, can we turn the heater
on in here?Ē Because usually the Bronco is our safe haven.
Itís where we sit and you know, sit with our cups of coffee
and turn on that Bronco and just let the heat from the
engine just you know warm the inside of it.
And I think it was its last day, it was its wrap out day
actually. And I was Ė you know I went to go turn it on and
Flynn walks up he goes, ďNo, she gave up on us.Ē And I was
like, what? Heís like, ďSheís done.Ē
And I said, ďWhat are you talking about sheís done?Ē And
heís like, ďShe wonít turn over, she gave up, sheís all
done. This is her last day-- sheís all done.Ē And I was
like, ďAre you kidding me, Keith?Ē And heís like, ďNo I can
Ė I can bring in a plug in heater... we can, you know, put it
right there on the seat next to you.Ē
And I was like, oh itís so sad, but itís so romantic and
poetic and thatís what happened. On the last day the Bronco
wrapped itself out. So no, I think we had a party and they
must have pushed it into the studio because we took a lot of
pictures by it. But as much as Lucas, you know, would have
loved to have that Bronco, we also knew that it was a royal
piece of amazing looks and thatís all it was. So it was no,
he didnít get it but she knew when to take her bow and she
Adam Copeland: And she did it (Multiple Speakers).
Emily Rose: And what, Adam?
Adam Copeland: She did have a drink named after her.
Emily Rose: Did she?
Adam Copeland: The Blue Bronco on Haven.
Emily Rose: Thatís right. Oh thatís right, thatís right. She
did. Thatís right she did.
Adam Copeland: Yes.
Emily Rose: The Blue Bronco.
Courtney Vaudreuil: Well thank you both so much. I
appreciate it. Iím really going to miss (Haven).
Emily Rose: Thank you.
Operator: Your next question comes from the line of Krista
Chain from The TV MegaSite. Your line is open. Please go
Krista Chain: Hey, thanks for talking to us today.
Emily Rose: Youíre welcome.
Krista Chain: Did you have a favorite
episode or a favorite moment during the series?
Emily Rose: During the series (wowser). Oh man. I think I
like all of the time travel episodes. I like when I get to
see I mean, you know Haven is such a timeless place anyway
but I think I really, really, really dug when we got to see
it transform into different eras of time.
Like the 50s episode will always stand out in my mind and
the one we did this season will stand out as well. But itís
too hard for me to pick a moment because to me Haven is one
huge moment in my life thatís really, really cool. So itís
hard to say goodbye to that friend in a way you know. It was
a lot Ė it was a big growing experience for me and a big
adventure and a big huge family.
The people, you know unfortunately some of the best moments
of times in your life arenít necessarily filmed, they're
what's not filmed. And the family that we had there and how
hard the Nova Scotia people crews worked for us and what
quality they put out and their consistent love and family
that they created for us is really one thing that I will
always have with me from now on and will never forget. So
itís pretty special, has a pretty special place in my heart.
And Iím sorry I am pregnant so Iím a bit emotional about
Adam Copeland: I kind of echo the same sentiments. Itís Ė I
found myself this summer for the first time I was like, wow
weíre not in Nova Scotia. I really miss Nova Scotia and I
miss the people and the gang and the family. And I miss you
know getting together and you know having wine and just
(inaudible). Wow, I really sound old giving this interview.
Emily Rose: Youíre really old.
Adam Copeland: And playing board games and you know
wrapping, doing wrap presents for the crew and just I donít
know. It really just became more than just a show and that
was such a great experience to be involved in because as I
said earlier, I had no idea that was going to happen and
this show truly did change my life. You know I think about
what happened to me personally from the time I started on
this show, you know Iíve had a baby who the entire cast and
crew knows and loves.
Thereís babies that I know and love that I you know got to
crawl all over me and to be Uncle Adam for. And those are
things that no one sees that just they remain with you. From
the work standpoint huge things obviously, itís all a new
experience. But I think thatís what I took from it is just
that itís trendy in industry but that it can be more than
that and it was.
Emily Rose: Yes itís it was a big year of closure this year.
This summer was really I donít know, was really sweet to be
back home but it was also really hard to be away from our
Haven family. We were hoping to dedicate this last season to
our dear friend Nicky Butler who we lost this year.
Nicky was the owner of the restaurant in town in Chester
that we met with you know we had dinner at her place every
single Sunday night, family dinners there as a cast and crew
And you know like Adam said like you know when I had my,
when I had Myles as a newborn at six weeks going back to
work like I was walking him down to dinner there you know
strapped to me and stuff and we just have such a family
there. So the fact that you know for us the closure has been
really good and really necessary but itís been hard to be
away from family during some of those big moments but itís
also felt like the year for that. Like it just is itís just
happening and life grows and changes and closes and moves on
and weíre just really thankful and blessed to have been a
part of it, so yes.
Krista Chain: Well congratulations on the success and I
look forward to seeing the rest of the series.
Emily Rose: Thank you so much.
Adam Copeland: Thank you.
Operator: And your final question comes from the line of
Jamie Ruby from SciFi Vision. Your line is open. Please
Jamie Ruby: Yay, I get to go again. Hi, guys.
Emily Rose: Hi, (Jamie).
Jamie Ruby: So I think at this point most of my questions
have been taken, but I was thinking for Emily. (Audrey) is a
lot different now that her troubles Ė sheís not immune to
the trouble like she was. Has that affected the way you play
her and how is that going to affect the character as well
Emily Rose: Yes, I mean I just remember you know with her it
was Ė you know itís tricky for me to sometimes like (parse)
out because we did like Ė weíre talking about you know
season 5b but we filmed 5a and 5b together as 26 episodes.
So you know I just remember, I think somebody even asked
about (Mara) early on. And I mean the tricky part about her
is like her you know the classic you know her being acting
like sheís (Audrey) but then being (Mara) but then people
think sheís (Audrey).
And then the whole you know immunity part getting thrown in
there and it was really appropriate because you know a big
question for (Audrey) this season was you know kind of a
different version of the original question she was asking
like who am I? Who am I? You know she didnít know her
identity initially and in terms of her family but then once
she kind of reclaimed her family and who that was, and you
know gained a new identity in being this protector of the
town and somebody that was immune, now sheís faced again
with a new identity crisis not only with you know having
been these different people but also, I donít want to say
power because itís not a power but something that she Ė that
worked to her advantage is no longer a part of her either.
Jamie Ruby: Right.
Emily Rose: And so you know sheís constantly on that
identity hunt and I can totally identify with that. And
especially moving on from this character and having
inhibited her Ė inhabited her for a long time you know being
like, oh OK what am I now and what am I doing now and how am
I going to identify myself and where do I fit?
But fortunately thatís just not (Audreyís) question. Thatís
a question that we all ask and thatís a question that all
the characters asked as they kind of bumped up you know do I
ask that question (as) he is forced to take different roles
and how does that role change his relationship with other
people. And (Nathan) is forced to ask himself that when
stuff for (Audrey) changes and then how does that affect
You know because her Ė that was directly you know connected
to a lot of the ways that they connected early on was that
he could feel her and all of that. So thatís something we
donít know if that changes or not. Does that change their
dynamic? All kinds of stuff that it feeds into (Duke) and
his journey you know what does it mean with the troubles
being a part of him and then not a part of him. Does that
make him evil, does that make him good?
How does he Ė you know weíre they're all the characters are
asking those questions. All of them itís just in different
forms. So itís great writing in that way because itís a core
question that we'd all you know ask (just) heightened and
dealing with troubles. So yes it was Ė it was tricky to play
because I constantly was like having to gauge myself with
the directors and my writers, like OK where am I? And you
know because your instinct after playing this character for
so long is just to act a certain way but you have to keep
the current state in the front of your mind.
Jamie Ruby: OK great. Well thank you, and also
congratulations to you as well.
Emily Rose: Thank you, thank you.
Jamie Ruby: But, thank you both of you.
Adam Copeland: Thank you.
Operator: As there are no questions on the phone line, at
this time I turn the call back to (Samantha).
