Interview with Anna Silk, Kris Holden-Ried
and Ksenia Solo of "Lost Girl" on SyFy 3/7/13
I don't watch this show regularly, mostly just
because of lack of time, but I have see a few episodes and
liked it. The actors were a lot of fun on this call and
really enjoyed themselves, so we all had a great time
listening to them and asking them questions.

Operator: Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by.
Welcome to the Syfy Lost Girl conference call.
As a reminder this conference is being recorded Thursday
March 7, 2013. And I would now like to turn the conference
over to Gary Morganstein, please go ahead.
Gary Morganstein: Thank you everyone for joining us for the
Lost Girl conference call. Season finale is April 22 and to
discuss season three and to cryptically look ahead at season
four, Iím not allowed to say much, Anna Silk, Kris Holden-Ried
and Ksenia Solo, who will be joining us shortly. Thank you,
Anna and Kris.
Anna Silk: Thank you Gary and hello everybody.
Operator: Our first question comes from the line of Erin
Willard with Sci Fi Mafia, please go ahead.
Erin Willard: Hi, thanks so much for the two of you I guess
for now for being on the call today and congratulations to
you and all of us on the new season ticket, weíre very
excited about that.
Anna Silk: Thank you, weíre excited too.
Erin Willard: Can you tell us anything or let me say what
can you tell us about the upcoming season finale?
Anna Silk: Oh gosh. Well, sure. You know thereís still quite
a bit of this season to air, I guess weíre about half way
through, maybe a little over half way through and you know
the tension definitely builds and we definitely have a very
heart pumping season finale, thatís all I can really think
of to say.
You know everythingís sort of - some things come together
and some things really get ripped apart. So I know thatís
really cryptic but I think that the viewers will be pretty
excited to see where the season leads and how we end.
And then theyíll be very, very excited to see a fourth
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah itís - without - sorry, always
difficult to figure out exactly what to say with these
things, but itís a really nice build up. I remember while we
were shooting at the last like four episodes we were all
really excited and everything had ramped up to a good
climax, good end.
Anna Silk: Yeah.
Erin Willard: Great, well we canít wait.
Anna Silk: Thank you Erin.
Operator: Our next question comes from the line of Jamie
Ruby with SciFi Vision.com, please go ahead.
Jamie Ruby: Hi again guys, congratulations on the renewal.
Anna Silk: Thanks Jamie.
Jamie Ruby: So I know you canít tell me exactly but maybe
you can kind of give some kind of tease about it but
obviously they keep teasing and teasing us about the Norn
Are we going to see maybe some moving forward of Dyson and
Boís relationship at all in the rest of the season?
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah, I mean weíre progressing, weíre
moving along; you know weíre trying to figure it out. I
think Bo has finally realized at this point by episode seven
that Dyson has his love back.
And - is that true? Iím pretty sure, right?
Anna Silk: I donít know about that.
Jamie Ruby: I think sheís guessing that maybe.
Anna Silk: Yes, guessing, exactly.
Kris Holden-Ried: I canít remember exactly what happens. You
know the love triangle is in season three and you know I
think the writers have always been very conscious of that
this is like one of our important story lines and you know
and how do you manage these three characters, to one keep
the fans interested and two, the characters interesting.
So thereís always progression, whether or not the fans will
like it or not, right?
Anna Silk: Yeah I think there is always progression but
thereís always major obstacles, you know along the way so it
- thereís definitely progression but itís not quite as
linear as you would think.
Kris Holden-Ried: Itís so funny, I love talking about this
sort of stuff after the whole season ends because then we
can go yeah, see? Itís cryptic; I just irritate myself with
Jamie Ruby: All right, since - as the popularity and
everything has increased in the show since the beginning has
there been anything thatís really changed in the filming
process or is it pretty much the same as it was since the
Anna Silk: In terms of our filming process? Jamie, sorry.
Jamie Ruby: Yeah, is there anything thatís changed since
itís gotten you know more popular and everything?
Anna Silk: No, you mean in terms of how we approach it?
Jamie Ruby: Yes, and well yeah, and just the way they film,
maybe they have a bigger budget, I donít know, just anything
Anna Silk: You know I mean I think weíve all found a good
group in terms of the sum in process. You know thereís
definitely things move along maybe not necessarily quicker
but they feel a little bit smoother.
And we all have a certain familiarity with the show and the
style and the look and everything.
And we sort of trust how it comes out so for me anyway
thatís one thing that I feel definitely a little bit more
confident in terms of what weíre doing.
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah and as far as production goes, I mean
I know that in season two we had a lot of fixed episodes and
in season three we didnít which was really nice because
seven is a good - you know seven is pretty much where you
need to make a good show.
Anna Silk: Yeah, those six days were killers.
Kris Holden-Ried: They were just brutal. Just donít have
time to tell a good story. But yeah, you know itís over
three years the crew and the cast really came together and
itís not so much about the notoriety of the show, itís just
a matter of time on task and the right people really getting
a good grove on.
And yeah, so those are the big changes production wise.
Jamie Ruby: Okay thank you.
Anna Silk: And people are excited to work on the show too, I
mean like a lot of crew members will show up and be like
people want to be on this show. You know people see my Lost
Girl t-shirt or my Lost Girl this or that.
And theyíre just like wow, like so many people are watching,
and weíre like yep, they are. So it kind of fuels everyone
to keep making a good show.
Operator: Our next question comes from the line if Jamie
Steinberg with Starry Constellation magazine.
Jamie Steinberg: I was just wondering what was it like for
you Kris to get to work with Miriam McDonald again?
Kris Holden-Ried: You know itís funny you ask that because
Miriam and I have I mean weíve gone back over ten, twelve
years and last time I worked with her she was a 14 year old.
And Iíve watched her completely you know change into a woman
and then weíre also both Latvian so we used to joke around,
how you know weíre the Latvians in the Canadian shows.
Because then Ksenia came whoís also part Latvian so now
thereís a trifecta of Latvians on the show; it was really
fun. But no, Miriamís lovely, I know it was great to
reconnect and unfortunately her dead body was all that I got
to act with and kind of thing.
Sheís a lovely Canadian actress. It was great to have her on
Jamie Steinberg: Dyson is putting Boís happiness above his
own this season, is it because he has come to respect Dr.
Lord as well?
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah, absolutely. I never really liked the
idea of pitting Lauren and Dyson against each other because
in the end they both love Bo and I think thatís something
that binds them together as well.
And you know I know Zoie and I we just really wanted to make
Dyson and Laurenís relationship interesting and I think the
writers have allowed us to do that so itís not just like
sheís mine, sheís mine.
You know we work together and there is a lot. I respect her
and I think sheís learning to respect Dyson a little more.
Jamie Steinberg: And then just real quickly whatís been your
favorite episode from this season?
Anna Silk: Oh thatís so hard to answer honestly because Iíve
been Ė there have been a lot of really good ones. I mean I
enjoyed the one that recently aired where Bo gets to go home
because we get to see a little bit of where she came from.
And itís a little bit more - the roots of her vulnerability
I guess, so I enjoyed that. The next one that airs is really
fun and I got to work primarily with Rachel Skarsten which
was really a great thing.
And I donít know, our finale is great, I donít know, itís
really hard for me to pick one episode. They - you know I
just have these standout moments that are various scenes
from different episodes so I think we had a really strong
That really tells a story and so yeah, I really canít
pinpoint one, Iím sorry.
Operator: And our next question comes from the line of Carla
Day with TV Fanatic, please go ahead.
Carla Day: Hi, I was wondering, so far in season three, Bo,
Kenzi, and Dyson have kind of all gone off on their own
dealing with their individual issues.
Can you talk a little bit about your thoughts about the gang
kind of being split up this season and then if the quote
unquote smoothie gang might get back together before the end
of the season?
Anna Silk: Well yeah, I mean it was definitely - we
definitely kind of go our separate ways, you know with good
reason. Thereís a lot of stuff for us all to explore, so -
but I really canít say anything about whether or not the
gang gets back together.
It would be just giving away too much I think.
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah, I mean I totally agree with her, I
love that camaraderie, that group you know that we had
season one and I think for all of our characters to sort of
grow we had to break apart and like have issues and things
that drew us away.
And yeah, like Anna said itís back to the group and the
group dynamic is pretty pivotal to the last few episodes and
how we end season three and start season four so youíre just
going to have to watch and see.
Operator: Our next question comes from the line of Kathie
Huddleston from blastr.com, please go ahead.
Kathie Huddleston: What kind of a journey would say your
characters have been on this season and how is that journey
affected by the episodes that are to come?
Kris Holden-Ried: Thatís a good one.
Ksenia Solo: Thatís a good question.
Kris Holden-Ried: Time to put on our Lost Girl thinking
Anna Silk: I know, I mean - go ahead Kris.
Kris Holden-Ried: No, I was just going to say anyone else
want to start?
Anna Silk: Okay, well I think that you know the - like weíve
been talking about a little bit the journey has been pretty
- you know we started together and it got pretty separate as
the season went on.
We all kind of had to go our separate ways and like Kris
said we need to kind of grow separate from the group so we
have more to bring back to the group.
So I think that thatís kind of the trajectory of where weíre
headed is that you know we do have things to bring back to
the group, whether theyíre good or bad I canít say, but we
definitely all learn and grow and bring forth something new.
Kris Holden-Ried: I couldnít have said it better myself.
Kathie Huddleston: And what can you tell us about season
Kris Holden-Ried: Honestly? Not much, we donít know except
that thereís going to be one.
Kathie Huddleston: But you know how this season ends so you
probably have at least a little clue of direction.
Gary Morganstein: They canít talk about season four.
Anna Silk: Yeah thereís really nothing we can say, I mean we
donít really have an idea, to be perfectly honest. Things
are still being developed right now.
And weíre leaving it in the hands of our very capable show
runner and writers to continue on you know where we left off
and pick it up with a new season.
So weíll know soon but we donít know anything right now.
Operator: And our next question comes from the line if
Meredith Jacobs with Examiner.com, please go ahead.
Meredith Jacobs: Hi, first of all, congratulations on season
four and thanks for being here.
Anna Silk: Thank you.
Meredith Jacobs: Okay so Kenzi has had a tough time lately
and Bo has tough times ahead, so what will we see from their
friendship for the rest of the season?
Anna Silk: Ksenia, do you want to take this one?
Ksenia Solo: Yeah, I mean itís been a roller coaster of a
journey for both Bo and Kenzi and theyíve kind of you know
had time this season to be apart a little bit and go through
their own kind of life and death situations and you know no
matter what pulls them apart in the moment, in the long run
itís impossible to tear them apart because of the bond they
have and the love they have for each other.
So you know every relationship goes through its ups and
downs and I think theyíve been you know kind of on the
upswing for a while so I think it was time this season to
give them a little - you know some hardships to go through.
So I think once they get over these bumps in the road you
know theyíll be able to kind of move on to the next chapter
in their relationship.
Anna Silk: Yeah and friendships you know really have to
evolve, they have to be challenge, so I think itís good for
Bo and Kenzi to kind of shake things up a little bit in
terms of their friendship and see where it goes from where
we leave off.
Meredith Jacobs: Great, thanks.
Anna Silk: Thank you.
Operator: Our next question comes from the line of Robin
Burks with Fan Girl Confessions, please go ahead.
Robin Burks: My first question actually is for Anna. In this
last episode you talked about it a little bit where Bo has
gone home. The final scene with her adoptive mother was so
well-acted, but very heartbreaking.
Where did you find the inspiration going into that scene and
how did you prepare for it?
Anna Silk: Well thank you, Iím glad you liked it, it seems
like itís gotten a really great response. And I mean the
woman who played my mother was pretty incredible.
And I donít know, I mean I think you know any actor
preparing for a scene like that honestly for me the best
thing I can do is really not prepare, not think about it
You know definitely know my dialogue but I donít anticipate
anything that can or canít happen. I just - and then if you
have a really great acting partner it just enriches it that
much more, itís actually kind of key.
So she was pretty incredible and I enjoyed it, I enjoyed
that scene with her a lot.
Robin Burks: Thanks. And my follow up question is for all
three of you, what would you like to see in season four as
far as the characters go or as far as the chosen plot goes?
Ksenia Solo: I always say like my favorite episodes are the
ones that are really outside the box, so like when we all
switched bodies, you know thatís something that we all
fondly remember because it was just so cool and different
and unlike anything any of us have ever done before.
So I hope that for season four we get to do more of that,
you know things that really challenge us as actors and
challenge our characters and you know the great thing with
our show is we can really go anywhere, thereís no formula,
thereís no box we have to stay in, so I really hope we get
to explore as much as possible.
Kris Holden-Ried: And Iím really fond of running around in
tights and a codpiece so Iím looking for period piece
brought back, that sort of thing.
Ksenia Solo: How did I know you would say that?
Anna Silk: And I just think that as much as I would love to
see that definitely in season four, Iíll have to mention
that to Emily but I think that the show just - you know I
feel like weíre evolving exactly as we should which means
that weíre constantly challenging and changing and moving
So you know I hope for more of that, I hope that we surprise
ourselves and we as actors are surprised by whatís going to
Operator: Our next question comes from the line of Jen
Sylvia with NerdSpan.com, please go ahead.
Jen Sylvia: Well I have actually one really huge question
and a whole bunch of others if I get the chance, but the
first one I have is we were discussing - well my best friend
and I were discussing Lost Girl last night.
And she happens to be bisexual and we were laughing because
we discuss Lost Girls as something we would let our children
watch when theyíre an appropriate age before we would
actually let them watch something heavily violent or
involving lots of blood, or violence against people.
So we were curious how does it feel to know that youíre
showing positive sexual role models to young people and that
a younger generation will be watching and learning
acceptance from Lost Girl?
Ksenia Solo: Thatís so cool.
Anna Silk: Yeah, thatísí amazing if thatís the case which I
definitely think we get that kind of feedback. I mean I
donít know, I think itís important and itís groundbreaking
frankly and it definitely feels good to know that you know
we are part of something.
And that was something we were really conscious of actually
from the very beginning was presenting that. But we didnít
want to over present it either, you know we just wanted to
make it really truthful.
And so the fact that itís resonating with people means a lot
to us. I know Zoie and I have talked about it a lot, so have
Kris and I and yeah, itís really great.
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah, you know a lot of people have made
this sort of comment about the chemistry that we have on the
set and just among the people who are working on it.
And I think thatís part of this thing that sort of radiates
through is that weíre all individuals and - who love each
other and itís not dependant on sexuality or where weíre at.
And I think we brought that to our characters and how they
function together. So I mean thatís very touching to me that
people are picking up on that and that itís adding value out
there in this crazy world of TV.
Anna Silk: Yeah and I think just build on what Kris said,
you know we are all very individual as actors even on set,
we all kind of work a little bit differently but from the
very start weíve all been very respectful of each otherís
So maybe that shines through as well.
Jen Sylvia: Well I can definitely say it does, and I do have
one question that relates to that that I know a lot of my
male friends would like to know if there would be any more
male on male action like what we saw briefly in ďFaes Wide
Kris Holden-Ried: Not with this guy. I was pretty sure I
would have remembered that, but I honestly canít really say.
Ksenia Solo: Season four.
Kris Holden-Ried: Exactly.
Jen Sylvia: Well Anna specifically for you though, you were
speaking of all the respect thatís on set, that is so
clearly obvious and even when I see you speak at com panels
and when you do interviews, but something Iím really curious
about then is what do you pull from internally to be the
fully sensual comfortable in her skin Bo when you go in
front of the camera.
Anna Silk: Well it clearly makes me giggle because I - you
know itís been an evolution for me just like itís been an
evolution for Bo to be perfectly honest.
You know I donít put on you know Bo outfits and walk around
like Iím the sexiest thing around, right guys? They see me
every day, I donít do that.
Itís really just within the writing and within the moment
that those exist, you know and itís nice, itís nice to feel
that kind of confidence building and that kind of sexuality
that has built in me as a person but also as the actor that
So yeah, I mean thatís the best answer I can give.
Jen Sylvia: Well thank you so much to all of you.
Kris Holden-Ried: Thank you.
Operator: Our next question comes from the line of Melissa
Girimonte from TheTelevixen.com, please go ahead.
Melissa Girimonte: Hello all, how are you guys doing?
Kris Holden-Ried: Hi Melissa, good, how are you?
Melissa Girimonte: Good, I have to say one of my favorite
episodes this year was, ďConFaegion.Ē
I wanted to know, Kris and Anna, how much fun was it for you
guys to reconnect with your inner teenagers for that
Kris Holden-Ried: We were having a blast. I mean outside of
all the work, yeah. Go ahead Anna.
Anna Silk: Yeah, I mean I really felt like you know a couple
days in I was like itís so great to play a character with no
responsibility, you know?
I just felt like I could be totally free, I felt like it was
easier to kind of improve, it just felt like there was no
parameters on me at all. So I just - it was like a really -
I donít know, it was a less cerebral episode for me and it
was kind of freeing.
And it was a really good lesson and it was just - it was
fun, and itís always fun to watch Kris dance and take off
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah, yeah. It was hilarious because the
three of us, Rachel, Anna and myself were upstairs, we were
playing spin the bottle, weíre just goofing around and the
next day Ksenia would show up and sheís working her ass off
doing stunt scenes and like really digging in deep for this
And weíre just playing the whole time.
Anna Silk: I know, those are usually my episodes, I was like
Ksenia Solo: They got a little too into character, I was
like guys, come on, get this together.
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah, that was definitely fun.
Melissa Girimonte: And just a quick little follow up for
Ksenia, I know when weíve chatted before you mentioned that
you were hoping to have some more you know action and you
know butt kicking scenes and youíve definitely gotten that
in spades this year.
How much did you enjoy those episodes where you really got
to get in there and kick some butt, especially in that same
Ksenia Solo: Well you know besides feeling like I couldnít
move or walk for an extended period of time, it was amazing.
I love that stuff, I love being physical, you know Iíve
always said from the beginning, you know Iíve been asking
our writers to give me as much as possible.
And it made me really feel for Anna who has to on a daily
basis like do this crazy choreography with like no time and
she always does such an incredible job at it.
And this time you know I got to get my butt kicked in that
department because it was a lot for that one episode for
Confaegion, it was just a lot. And we didnít have much time
and you know I obviously wanted it to look as great as it
And you know so props to Anna for that one and I had a ball
and I hope they continue to let me kick some butt because
frankly itís a lot of fun.
Melissa Girimonte: Thanks so much and congrats on season
Anna Silk: Thank you so much Melissa.
Operator: And our next question is a follow up question from
the line of Erin Willard with SciFi Mafia, please go ahead.
Erin Willard: Again Ksenia I canít believe you have to
audition for anything but I hope it went well.
Ksenia Solo: Thank you and apologies again.
Erin Willard: No problem. Anna I wanted also to join in the
congratulations on your performance on that final scene with
your adopted mom, it was just absolutely exceptional, we
were in tears watching it.
Iím wondering if it was your most challenging scene of this
season and if it wasnít what was? And Iíd like to hear about
the other two actorís most challenging scenes of the season.
Anna Silk: Well it was definitely the most challenging but
honestly the challenge really when I approach scenes like
that the challenge for me is to really not really over
prepare and then the challenge is to trust yourself, that
the moments are going to be there.
And that youíll be able to live in those moments so that was
the scary part of doing that but I think you know some - so
I donít know, the challenging scenes for me, thereís
different type of challenges, thereís certainly physical
ones but I think that - gosh trying to think of another
scene from this season that was crazy.
Kris Holden-Ried: Thereís the scene where we were in your
dream world, remember?
Anna Silk: Oh yeah, weíve got some stuff coming up with
episode nine I think which we canít tell you about, but itís
- thereís a really big challenging episode coming up.
That was - yeah, youíre totally right Kris, that episode
which I canít remember what itís called, Iím sorry.
But itís coming up soon, youíll know it when you see it and
that was - it required a lot of I guess emotional presence
is all I can say and so I had a really good partner in it,
in Kris and - so yeah.
That episode was challenging.
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah, for me too, I mean if you want -
there was definitely that one, it had a lot of you know
reacting to things that werenít there so to speak and then
like trying to be really present.
But also in 306 when I have to act with Rachel when she was
doing her Valkyrie thing on me, I was trying to figure out
what to do with that and how it affects me and like - and
then being hung over from it, that whole sort of chain of
And then climaxing with killing the Kitsune and holding her
and wondering if Iíve killed her, that was a good episode
for me as far as working in scenes.
Ksenia Solo: Yeah I think that episode for me as well, the
Kenzi still that very long scene where I had to play Kenzi
and the Kitsune and we filmed it all you know in one day,
kind of in one sitting.
And it was just you know kind of a huge mind game just
trying to play the character that Iíve been playing for the
last three, four years and then switch over to somebody
completely new and somebody completely different.
So that stands out in my mind for most challenging scene for
me this season.
Kris Holden-Ried: That was awesome.
Erin Willard: It was awesome, all three of you have been
really top of the game this season, and itís really been a
pleasure watching you, thanks so much.
Anna Silk: Thank you.
Operator: Our next question is a follow up question from the
line of Jamie Ruby with ScifiVision.com, please go ahead.
Jamie Ruby: Hi again, I was wondering Ksenia do you think
that Kenzi is going to have any kind of lingering resentment
at all because of the fact that no one seemed to notice she
was gone or do you think that sheís kind of over that and
just happy to be back?
Ksenia Solo: I think sheís definitely happy to be alive, so
I think itís a moment thatís kind of overshadowed any other
feelings from going hey, why werenít my friends there for me
when I needed them?
Of course itís unpleasant and I donít know, I donít know - I
feel like sheís greatly affected and in the big scheme of
things I feel like now more than ever she feels weaker than
all her friends who have powers and are you know in a
physical sense light years more advanced than she is.
So weíll see, you know obviously everything affects us
whether we know it or not, you know consciously or
But I feel like it is going to affect the decision she makes
in the upcoming episode.
Jamie Ruby: Okay great, and Kris are we going to see any
time soon kind of sort of how Dyson and Trickís relationship
came to be? Because I always think itís interesting,
especially when heís like listening to him you know and does
what he says and everything.
But we havenít really seen much of you know why.
Kris Holden-Ried: Not in this season but weíve all been
talking about it and itís definitely something that we all
want to tackle and I know the writers are key on brining
something about that into season four.
And you know hopefully with the flashbacks or really get
into the history of it, so weíll see where it falls and if
it happens but I know the people are thinking about it.
So fingers crossed.
Jamie Ruby: And I just wanted to say that singing and
dancing like the wolf, thatís right up there with you being
Kenzi, that was really awesome.
Kris Holden-Ried: Thank you. Quite awkward in the moment,
Operator: Our next question is a follow up question from the
line of Jamie Steinberg with Starry Constellation magazine.
Jamie Steinberg: Hi, such a pleasure to speak with you guys
again. Hello? I was wondering while the Bo and Kenzi
relationship is an important one in this series do you think
weíll see more of Kenzi finding her own place in the Fae
world or will she stay Boís sidekick?
Ksenia Solo: Yeah like I always say Kenzi is forever loyal
to Bo and they have an unbreakable bond, you know and at
this time theyíve been through hell and high water together
so thereís not much that could get in between them.
But you know judging from - whatís the best way to say this?
From everything thatís happened to her this season, weíre
definitely going to see Kenziís mind working a little bit
You know as I said in one of the previous answers that I
gave that you know Kenzi is now more than ever feeling
weaker than everybody else.
And that is unacceptable, you know she wants to be a great
friend and she wants to be an equal with these Faes and you
know not feel like the weakling human.
So it affects her decisions and in the episodes to come
sheís got to make some really big decisions.
So weíll see where that takes her.
Jamie Steinberg: And Kris could you talk about what the most
difficult part about portraying Dyson is?
Ksenia Solo: Having to be so sexy all the time.
Jamie Steinberg: Good looks are always a curse.
Kris Holden-Ried: Oh God, if only you knew the truth, I have
an amazing team of light professionals who help make Dyson,
you know Iím just a little part of it.
The most difficult part about Dyson I guess was I guess kind
of grounding his sort of animalness and you know the - just
the physicality of him, figuring that out.
And then as Ksenia can attest itís a pretty weird body
posture to hold and itís definitely taking its toll. Anyway,
so yeah, I guess the physical side of it probably.
Jamie Steinberg: And Anna with the dawning twist to season
three, what do you think of that overall more traditional
hero turns dark story line?
Anna Silk: Well I mean I loved what they did with season
three and I mean I know that in the very beginning the
promos for season three really made it look like Bo went
And what I like is that it was more than that, you know
thereís definitely elements of dark and thereís more
elements of dark to come which I loved.
But I love that itís coming from a scary place for Bo, itís
not just about her becoming evil and bad, itís the fact that
that potential for her to devolve in there is really scary
and she has to really rise to the challenge.
And her - you know and her team has to rise to the challenge
as well or participate in it in some way. So I liked that we
kind of had that twist.
I thought they did a great job promoting it and a great job
Jamie Steinberg: Great, thank you so much guys.
Anna Silk: Thank you.
Operator: Our next question is a follow up question form the
line of Carla Day with TV Fanatic, please go ahead.
Carla Day: Hi, I was wondering at the beginning of the
season when Tamsin showed up, she was very against - kind of
working against Bo and Dyson and what theyíve been trying to
And then after saving Kenzi she kind of weakens her resolve
against them. Can you talk a little bit about the - how you
see Tamsin fitting into the story so far this season and
then going forward her relationship with the group?
Kris Holden-Ried: Anna, do you want to start with this Anna
or do you want me to take a shot at it?
Anna Silk: Go ahead.
Kris Holden-Ried: There were a couple things going on with
Rachelís character this year. One was we were originally
planning on doing a longer season so they had different sort
of arcs thought out for her character.
And then when we decided to do 13 they sort of had to
truncate that. The way she kind of comes in between - I mean
Tamsin has her own agenda that weíre just sort of
Iím not quite sure where weíre at with the Tamsin story line
up to episode seven but she definitely - you know sheís
walking her own path and sheís got an agenda.
And when that comes in contact or conflict with Boís and
Dysonís and you know thatís kind of what - part of that is
what happens in - am I saying too much? I donít know.
Let me just think about what I can say. Tamsin does come -
she becomes a very important part and how she goes on is -
youíre just going to have to watch and see what that does.
Sorry, I kind of lead you on then and then shut you down.
Anna Silk: For Bo, I mean like Tamsin this late comes in,
rocks her world a little bit in the beginning, thereís
definitely a lot of electricity between them, you know good
and bad, but more bad I guess in the beginning.
I think you know there are certain points in the season I
think weíve seen this a little bit already where Bo needs
Tamsin you know as much as she might not want to admit that.
But I donít think she can ever fully trust her, not yet
anyway so thereís been a lot to play with in that
relationship which I really enjoyed as well.
I think sheís been a really good addition to the group.
Kris Holden-Ried: Absolutely.
Operator: And our next question is a follow up question from
the line of Kathie Huddleston from Blaster.com, please go
Kathie Huddleston: Hi again guys, hey so regarding your own
journey as actors what would you say has surprised you most
this season? The thing you werenít expecting.
Ksenia Solo: The thing we werenít expecting to learn,
experience as actors?
Kathie Huddleston: Yes.
Ksenia Solo: Thatís tough.
Kris Holden-Ried: That is tough.
Anna Silk: You stumped all of us.
Ksenia Solo: I think for me I think you know going back to
playing two characters, that was definitely shocking, I had
no idea that that was in the cards, you know before we came
in to do season three and you know I really had to wrap my
mind around it and it was a really challenging episode for
So thatís something that was just really a cool experience,
to learn how to act with yourself and imagine and have to
change you know so quickly to somebody else after playing
you know the same person for the last three years.
So to me that was kind of a very educating experience.
Kris Holden-Ried: Anna, youíve had a couple of those too,
Anna Silk: Yeah, definitely and I think I mean if I was to
answer the question purely as an actor who you know is
working on this show rather than thinking about Bo, I mean I
think the things that Iíve learned over the last three
seasons and I definitely learned it this past season is that
when I read scripts and something bumps up against me you
know my natural reaction is to want to change it.
And you know Iíve kind of learned that maybe I should sit
with it for a little bit and maybe Iím bumping up against it
for a good reason, maybe itís a good challenge.
So I tried to not be so adamant that it change, I try to
incorporate it into what Iím doing and usually itís a good
lesson for me and it brings something new to my performance.
And itís good for me as an actor, or it has to change.
Kris Holden-Ried: You know I think that thatís really what
has been the big lesson for me too is that you know often
times weíll read a script and we form an opinion about it
whether we like the dialogue or not or whether we think the
story line is silly or not.
And sometimes you know Iíve been proven wrong many times on
something that I thought was maybe not that great or could
have used work, people love it and really respond to it.
So itís been a good lesson to kind of go hey, you know my
idea of how the show is going to end up or be received isnít
always right and thatís a nice thing to keep in mind.
Because one, it takes kind of the responsibility off of me a
bit, itís like hey, you know who am I to take the
responsibility to try to make something good for someone
because you know a lot of people like a lot of different
And you know let people have it.
Anna Silk: Yeah and I think that we have you know like our
voices should definitely be heard, weíre the ones who
created these characters in a big way but we also donít
always know best.
Operator: And our next question is a follow up question from
the line of Jen Sylvia with NerdSpan.com, please go ahead.
Jen Sylvia: Well first I can honestly say that weíve all -
all my friends and all of us that watch it - completely
appreciate all of the effort you guys are putting forth and
itís been such a journey and a treasure to watch.
Ksenia Solo: Thank you for that.
Jen Sylvia: No, thank you. But one thing that I am curious
about, I know that other people also with Haleís character
kind of going into the background thereís crushing
responsibilities of the Ash, how is that going to affect the
dynamic of especially Dyson and Hale and then Kenzi and
I mean that was a huge chemistry and friendship that we were
all rooting for.
Kris Holden-Ried: Well unfortunately just like it wasnít
really - it all had to do with shooting schedules and you
know Hale wasnít supposed to be you know become a diminished
character by any means.
And as far as his involvement still goes, I mean heís there
with us all the way to the end. Itís just KC Collins is
shooting another show right now so we donít get him as much
as weíd like to.
And yeah, I think the writers did - they made the most out
of what they could do and hopefully weíll see what happens
in season four.
Anna Silk: And I think Ash too, you know he kind of
automatically puts him separate than us because heís got
this new responsibility so kind of it works really well,
they did it really well.
Kris Holden-Ried: Yeah I think so too.
Ksenia Solo: Yeah and we all started together from the very
beginning so even if you know a character like his is not
around as much it definitely does not kind of diminish him
to us in any way, to us as actors and as well to our
So you know we love him and miss him when heís not there but
when he is itís like he hasnít missed a beat, again as KC
and as Hale.
Anna Silk: And I just want to make sure that it wasnít that
we think he is diminished in any way so it seems like his
responsibilities as acting Ash are just crushing him and I
do believe that theyíre pitting it very respectfully, weíre
just wanting to see more.
Jen Sylvia: Well we want to see more of the whole show.
Weíre grateful we get to see this as often. Thanks guys.
Kris Holden-Ried: Weíd like to see more Hale too.
Operator: And our next question is a follow up question from
the line of Jamie Ruby with ScifiVision.com. Please go
Jamie Ruby: Hi again, I know earlier on in the season when
no one seemed to be listening to Bo and just kind of thought
she was going crazy and you guys also talked about the
characters not being as much together.
I know eventually they will get close again but is any of
that going to have you know any lasting effects? Is it going
to affect them later, or are they just you know that partís
kind of over.
Ksenia Solo: You mean when Kenzi wasnít Kenzi?
Jamie Ruby: Yeah that too but not just with Kenzi, with no
one listening because I know obviously Lauren has a bigger
problem but even Dyson, you know nobody was believing.
Kris Holden-Ried: What werenít we believing? Sorry; just
refresh my memory.
Ksenia Solo: That Kenzi wasnít Kenzi.
Kris Holden-Ried: Oh.
Ksenia Solo: Remember back in the day when Bo was trying to
convince everybody, it really is light-years ago.
Anna Silk: Well I think that was a good test, you know a
test for you know Bo knew what she knew and the fact that
nobody believed her it was just sort of the conditions of
You know there were things going on with Bo, Lauren was
noticing things, Dyson was noticing things, you know we had
this evil Kenzi there messing everything up.
And so you know I think Bo can see why people didnít believe
her. But in terms of how that affects everything, I think
itís important to be just trusted and then have to -
realizing about each other and regain trust and so
definitely affects the group.
And you know there - more remains to be seen this season and
probably into next season as well.
Jamie Ruby: Okay great, one last question, what were you -
Kris Holden-Ried: No, itís all good, I was just going to say
there was a lot of other things going on with different
characters at that time too so we had a lot of - because I
remember now yeah, talking about why wouldnít we trust Bo?
And there were a lot of reasons in the story or in the
script that sort of backed our characterís ability to sort
of - you know to go down those paths. You know whether Dyson
was messed up from the Valkyrie effect or Bo just acting
But yeah how it affects us later, sorry, Iím just going to
Jamie Ruby: Thatís what I was asking. Iím just going to ask
quickly, what were you guys doing like when you found out
that the show was going to be renewed, I mean how did you
feel about that?
I mean obviously you were happy but how did that happen?
Anna Silk: full disclosure, we knew a little bit longer than
before the announcement which made it really hard because we
wanted to tell people but we couldnít.
But you know when we did find out, I can only speak for
myself but I think we were all pretty thrilled, because itís
just nice to get to continue telling these stories.
Operator: And our next question comes from the line of Jen
Sylvia with NerdSpan.com, please go ahead.
Jen Sylvia: Thanks, just targeting back a little bit with
Dyson having to take a back seat to Lauren for the time
being and that conversation between Dyson and Trick about
respecting it, the relationship between Bo and Lauren.
Will there be any physical solace for Dyson in the interim?
Will there be something that will help ease his sorry as it
Kris Holden-Ried: No. Dyson is - yeah thatís his cross to
bear and I think itís a good one as far as character and
something I can play with. No, thereís no physical pleasures
for Dyson in the near future.
Gary Morganstein: Thank you everyone, Anna, Kris, & Ksenia.
Operator: Ladies and gentlemen that does conclude the
