Interview with Victor Webster of "Continuum" on
Here is my interview with Victor Webster. He was so kind
and had so much to say. I am a huge fan of his.

I can figure out the parts she couldn't hear, but here it is
The second season of Continuum starts in June. Are you
still filming or is it all done?
"We're shooting Episode 9 right now of 13 episodes this
What can you tell us about the second season?
"In a nutshell, the second season has a ton of action,
even more than last season. We go deeper into the
characters, not just Kiera, Carlos, and Alec, but also all
of the other Liber8 characters. We introduce new characters
with new storylines. We go all out this year. We really take
you out into the ?. We have new characters coming on, not
necessarily Liber8. You'll have to watch and find out."
Will we learn in the first episode why Alec sent Kiera
back in time (that's how the last episode left off)?
"There's a lot of very interesting information shared
between Kiera and Alec. We don't want to talk about
spoilers. Without getting into specifics, there are a lot of
things shared. We don't know literally what the future holds
for us. We don't know what's going on until we get the
scripts and read them. Apparently, this year's cliffhanger's
going to be ? as well.
Will we see a sort of triangle between Carlos, Kiera, and
Kellogg in the second season?
"I don't know. This is a difficult position for Kiera to
be in, because she has a husband, and she has a son who
she's desperately trying to get back to. It'll be very
interesting to see Kiera be able to do that and still hold
the respect of the audience. So the writers will have to do
that in an interesting way, and they're very creative. They
don't do what other shows normally do. You know, most shows
would have a love triangle and would have Carlos and Kiera
at least having this sense of sexual tension; but because
our show is so different and not normal, it doesn't follow
any of the same paths that a lot of other shows do. I don't
know if that's going to happen. Like I said, I've only read
a few scripts yet, but I can see them going there in a very
unique way, but I can see them not going there."
Will we see more of the future Alec, William B. Davis?
"He has a really good storyline in this season. Yeah,
you're going to see more of him."
Has working on this show affected the way you look at
technology at all?
"Oh, I'm a techno geek. I mean, I love technology. But
the newest and latest, I always find out about it, read
about it, want to know about it. Cars, phones, all that kind
of stuff, so I love technology. ? is doing, the special
effects, is so interesting to me. I want to live in that
world with all of those gadgets, but I don't want to live in
the world of a corporate dictatorship, so I wouldn't want to
live in Future 2077, but I sure would love all the gadgets
that they have.
"A lot of our shows are stolen from the headlines, things
that are really happening now, and Battleship pawn in a
what-if way. What if these stories were to grow and become
more and more serious, where would we go from there? So this
Future 2077 ? is the possibility if people start losing
faith in the government, the way our government is, and
start to give control over to privately-owned companies that
? with the budget. They don't believe that the US government
can get the budget, but a lot of companies come in and say,
'Oh, we can do this, and we can do that.' What if one day
they decide we should have a privatized budget? We've gone
one step in that direction, so I feel like, it's within the
realm of possibility. I don't know if it will be, but it
sure does make you think."
It seems like the bad guys are kind of winning so far...
"Well, your heroes are only as strong as your villains.
And the more that Liber8 succeeds, the more that we have to
fight, the more the audience roots for us, and the more the
audience gets drawn in the storyline. Also, this year we
show a different side of Liber8. Why they're fighting. Why
they're doing what they're doing. So, some of the audience
may actually have empathy for the terrorists ? and why
they're doing what they're doing. So that's going to be a
very interesting dynamic as well.
Do you think that in the writing, there's a certain
amount of inevitability about things in the present making
the future come true? Like in episode 9 when Julian's father
gets killed, which leads to his starting Theseus?
"And that's the question -- that's what makes us think,
right? We can either create the future that we see. Has all
this already happened? Has this all been planned out? Is
this what created the future? Or are we, in essence,
changing the future by what we're doing here? So, are we
creating the future that we see, because this has already
happened exactly this way, or is this a new event coming
back and changing everything? And we're not going to know
until we go back to 2077, for sure.
"Will we change the future? Yes, we will. But are we on
Groundhog Day? Has this already happened before and now it's
The season finale blew my mind. Introducing the character
of Jason, who's a little crazy, and escalating
everything...awesome. And also introducing Nicholas Lea.
Will Nicholas Lea be back?
"Yes, both of them are back. We do some very interesting
things with them, definitely.
Did it take you by surprise when you read it?
"I expect to be taken by surprise every time I read a
script. I'm expecting to go, 'Are you kidding me? Really?
This is what we're doing?' I love it, so I read it like a
fan when I read the next episode that we're shooting. So,
yeah, it takes me by surprise, but I'm expecting there to be
some twists and turns."
A fan wiki describes Carlos as "He has approached his
work with a single-minded obsession that is both a strength
and a weakness." Do you think that fits?
"I do, because Carlos is the moral compass of the show.
Carlos does everything by the book, and the only way to do
it, is the right way to do it. There's no bending the rules.
You've got to follow procedure. And that's what makes him a
really good cop, because he does that. He doesn't put
himself in any compromising positions, but sometimes we
learn, especially in Season 2, that sometimes you need to
bend the rules for the outcome that you want for the
betterment of humanity for the greater good, but me doing
that also affects Liber8 and their cause. Carlos can learn
that sometimes you've gotta bend the rules, and he may not
necessarily agree with it, but that's a perfect description
of what Liber8 does. Like, you may not like the means by
which they achieve their goals, but they're their achieving
goals for the right reasons in their minds.
In the 7th episode, Carlos gets in trouble when he's
suspected of murder. We got to see some his friends. Will we
get to see more of his friends? Does Carlos have more
friends and family we'll learn about?
? comes back. You'll see more of him and his character.
You'll learn a little bit more about his past and his family
a bit more, but so far, no more friends have come in. He's
pretty much focused on catching Liber8. He doesn't have much
of a social life."
In the 9th episode, Carlos gets shot. Was that fun to
play? Were you shocked that he recovered so fast?
"That's one thing that we don't get to touch on so much,
is the time frame of that. It was a few weeks that went by,
but when you watch the episode, it seems like it was almost,
like, a couple of days. But, yeah, the way that it was
explained to me, it might have been a little bit convoluted,
but it was at least a few weeks."
Do you think Carlos will ever remember what Kiera
confessed to him in that episode?
"I think eventually he's going to remember something, and
that's going to make him his questioning of Kiera that much
greater, and in Season 2, she definitely does even more,
because the more time that Carlos spends with Kiera, the
more questions he has, because of her methods and, you know,
her constantly talking to herself, and seeing things for the
first time that she shouldn't be seeing for the first time
-- all the things that we played out in Season 1. It creates
more and more questions, and eventually that has to come to
a head, and there needs to be a discussion at some point.
Whether that happens in Season 2 or not, I can't tell you."
Do we find out who Escher is?
"We continue to explore who Escher is."
I heard that you're a Sci-Fi fan. What other TV shows do
you enjoy watching?
"Sci-Fi shows? I don't know if you'd consider 'Walking
Dead' Sci-Fi? But I definitely enjoy that show. Anything
with zombies in it I absolutely love. I don't get time to
watch a lot of TV, but I go to the movies at least once or
twice a week. I'm really looking forward to 'Oblivion' --
the new Tom Cruise movie coming out, which is supposed to be
a really amazing Sci-Fi movie, so we'll see about that, and,
you know, I'm a big fan of the Alien ? franchise. What other
TV shows are there out there that are Sci-Fi? I watched the
season premiere of 'The Bias ?" I thought that was pretty
good. I enjoyed that. Anytime a Sci-Fi movie comes out, I'm
You have always looked very buff. I know you've done
martial arts, but you must spend a lot of time in the gym to
get to look like that. How many hours a day do you spend?
"A lot of it is one of the most difficult parts of it is
the diet, it's having the proper fuel for my body to run on,
and I have a nutritionist that makes food and delivers it to
me, which makes it a little bit easier. I'm in the gym 5 to
6 days a week for an hour at a time.
