HAVEN Central: Emily Rose and Colin Ferguson Dish on the Lexie/William Relationship

emily rose haven

Season 4 of HAVEN has fractured the world we know it as our beloved hero Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) is living her life as Lexie Dewitt, completely unaware of her prior lives as Audrey, Lucy and Sarah.  Perhaps just in the nick of time, a mysterious newcomer William (Colin Ferguson) finds Lexie and tries to tell her about her other identities and life in Haven.  But just what is the relationship between William and Lexie or her former self, that is a huge mystery.  In a recent press conference call, star Emily Rose and guest-star Colin Ferguson shed some light on who Lexie and William are and what their future looks like.
 
What role does William play for both of you? Are we going to learn about his past? Is it going to be revealed anytime soon?
COLIN: We are going to find that history about who William is and what their relationship was. How much history we can’t really say, although I think I can’t say that it’s not going to be left completely up in the air. As the season progresses, you find out sort of the problems and strengths of their relationship and you find out if it’s going to be an addition or subtraction to the town. So that stuff definitely plays out.  But I mean there are bigger questions up in the air right now with: is it Lexie or Audrey, and then what will happen with all that? So my part plays out for sure, but I guess that’s about all I can say.
 EMILY: I think that when you watch HAVEN, you’re not necessarily completely in the point of view of Audrey, but that is a large part of the point of view I think, in my opinion, and obviously because I’m playing Audrey. But I feel like for the first bit of it, there is a bit of a fog surrounding William. Who is he? What is their connection? Why is he so familiar with her? All these things. And leaving the audience wondering in that way, it really puts them in on Audrey’s or Lexie’s mindset about who is this person just walking into my life and shouting off all this stuff about me.  I mean, what their history is.  That is the cool part, if there is any. And Colin does such a great job of keeping that veiled for a time and then given at the end there. So I think that’s all I can say.
COLIN: But we’ve had a really fun time playing into it. I mean they’ve done a really good job of writing both sides of that equation. I mean, you genuinely don’t know — hopefully that like, “Gosh, is he nice but just a little off? Or is he off and pretending to be nice? And I’m really pleased with casting, stunning casting.”
 
What’s been your favorite scene the two of you have filmed together? What’s been the most fun?
EMILY: Oh, that’s a tough question.
COLIN: Well, for sure, without revealing, I really enjoyed a scene that we did.  It took place in a hospital. I can say that. And I think that was a fun one for me because I really thought that they were going to write him with a lot more humor and when he was being nice or not nice, it was funny both ways.  I really appreciate that they went that way with him because I so enjoyed doing that sort of stuff. So that was a great eye-opener for me. I enjoyed it.
EMILY: Yes.  It’s been really fun.  Like Colin and I started hanging out at these Syfy media tour deals and it sort of like you do with your friends when you hang out.  We weren’t friends before that, but had a friendship develop over all those many times of doing interviews together.  So it was, “Hey, it will be so fun to have you on HAVEN” or “It’d be so cool if we got to do something together.”  So now looking back, tere are so many scenes I feel grateful we had this opportunity to do some really fun work. What’s cool about Colin and my scenes, I feel like that there really is really good scene work and I think for me it is that trick of not wanting to give it away. There is a scene that takes place where I am in a prison cell, that’s what I want to say.  But I think that was a really fun scene to play, because tables were turned and it was really, really enjoyable. The listening that happened and just the scene itself that played out. And I also just really like those early bar scenes in episodes one through four because it’s so early on on the journey and they’re both sort of kind of naïve, or at least you hope they are, to really what’s happening. So those are always fun to play.
COLIN: And we’ve had a running joke where I would sort of go in before I’m about to do something and I would go, “So in this take I’m going to do this and this and this” and Emily was saying like, she would always turn to me and go, “You don’t have to tell me ahead of time. I am listening.”  

What you do like best about your characters?
COLIN: That they’ve given me so much to play.  When you come in  to service a show the way that I had been brought in, the fear is that you’re going to be the plot hammer. You’re just going to come in and like, “blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,” and everybody else with just cool reaction.  But they’ve actually written this great role that has so much subtexts because you’re not really sure what he’s doing from time to time. That was a huge gift for me. So I think probably that’s what I’m most grateful for and what I like the most. That he does that with humor.
EMILY: Yes. I think for me, Audrey is such a fun character to play in general because she gets to be all these different people. So with Lexie, I feel like one of the fun things for me to play with her was like all of the external things that she was — her hair, her rings, her nose ring, the dark sort of edgier kind of point of view, and just the humor.  I mean Audrey is so serious all the time because she has to be.  So playing Lexie was like a breath of fresh air because she didn’t take anything seriously. She’s like there to have a good time and party a bit. And if she gets freaked out, that’s kind of cool and crazy. But she’s mainly there like razzing everybody and just kind of a party girl. So that was like just the most — I don’t know — the detail and just the thing that always caught me off-guard when I was getting to film was I was like, I get to say that line in a completely different way and it’s hilarious. That’s really fun. So that was part I enjoyed the most with Lexie.

Is it a challenge for each of you to step into roles that have to be so different from what you played before, or is that just super-easy for each of you?
EMILY: It was really fun for me. But I think having kind of just had my son, having the baby and then coming straight into like four days of straight shooting in order to kind of catch up with everybody else, there was a little piece in me that was like: Is this Audrey or is this Lexie? And I constantly was kind of talking with Colin and just saying like, “Oh, I kind of maybe want to take that, take it again, it feels a little more Audrey than it was Lexie, I need to make sure that this character is coming through.”  That’s always your fear, that maybe one will bleed into the other. But in my case, it’s okay if they do kind of bleed into each other, I think, but still you want to make a clear distinction. But to me, the externals, the things like my costume and what I’m wearing really help me get caught from one person to the next.
COLIN: And I would say the first day is always the worst. I mean, prior to coming in, you have all these ideas about what the character is and how you’re going to play it and all that stuff, but you don’t know if anyone else is going to approve or if it’s going to work. And you don’t really know until you start bouncing off the other person and seeing if any of it lands or if the writers and the execs and the other actors had a completely different take on the scene. So prior to that first day, you’re pretty nervous playing someone new because there’s all this concept discussion. The concept doesn’t really mean anything at the end of the day. It comes down to execution and what that means to everybody involved. So that first day is always nerve-wracking.  But after that, I mean it’s a breath of fresh air because you get to the good news about playing someone for a bunch of different years is that you learn them so well and it’s such familiar clothing to step into. The downside is that it’s hard to make it fresh.  The good side about getting someone new is that it’s completely fresh, so you’re energized right out of the gate. The scary bit is your bag of tricks is way smaller, so you’re just slowly growing it as the character grows, and that’s a fun, fun exploration. So, in a sense, Emily and I were doing it together in the first couple of scenes.
 
How much did you know about William and Lexie when you were getting started playing these characters? Did you have any idea where their relationship was going to end up or were you just sort of winging it as you went?
COLIN: The funny thing about that is you’re told things, but whether they’re true or not is the hard bit, because the writers don’t know.  They’re writing episode 401 and they say, “Yes, we think it’s going to do this direction, we’re fairly certain it’s going to go like that.” But until they actually write it, it could go another way. And a lot of times they’re watching. So they see the chemistries, their interaction, where do want to go with it? So I try to prep based upon what they say, but you have to sort of keep the trap door open just in case it’s snakes right or left without you suddenly.
EMILY: Yes, definitely. And I feel like it is constantly my desire to want to know and to get as much information as I can so I can make informed choices as an actor. But in some regards with this particular character of Audrey Parker that I’m playing, the not-knowing is just as relevant. So I do push at times when there are things that I do need the answers to. But then there are other times when I realize, “you just need to use this, Emily.” Use the mystery, use the unknowing, use the no one knows where a relationship will end up when it starts unless they’re looking back on it in some regard. So from my point of view it’s constantly trying to open up whatever there is to discover and trying to find out what there is to know.  And like I tease Colin about trying to be present and to listen and to see what kind of comes from that. But of course I say that and in other sense of the word, I’m there as I’m about ready to have my son — waiting to have the baby — and going, “I need to prepare for this character as much as I can. Give me all the information I can.” And so in some ways, that’s beneficial, and in other ways you just kind of have to trust that you’ve done your homework and then forget about it and do the best you can on the day.
COLIN: There’s something coming that’s pretty big that they did need to sit me down in L.A. and tell me all about before it all started. And that proved to be true. What they told me in the beginning was what they did ultimately.  So in this particular situation, it was good to sort of follow what they said and believe. So I guess the answer is, yes, they sat me down, and said, this is where this character is going and this is his history. It’s something.
 
Will we be able to see kind of a more vulnerable side of the Audrey character in Lexie?
EMILY: Yes.  I mean was an interesting character point for Lexie with the writers and between me, as I was constantly like, “She’s acting like she’s afraid of this fight, but yet she’s super-tough and pulls out a gun, and is playing a tough girl but sort of isn’t.” And I had to come to peace with the fact that there are those people that, because they’re scared to death, they do cover with a lot of toughness but when rubber meets the road, are hiding behind things or whatnot or are scared even though they talk a big talk.  And I think that’s kind of where I landed with Lexie.  That she is kind of like all about the exterior toughness. I definitely do think, of course there is a vulnerability to her. In a similar way of Audrey, as sort of I’ve always imagined her being sort of more on the road, a bit more nomadic, a little bit somebody that’s in bars all the time looking for their family there instead of one that they may have or don’t have.  But I think we sort of kind of roll into the mystery of what William is saying and what he’s kind of talking with Lexie. We roll into that a bit sooner I think than we get to see the vulnerability. And then there’s a really large vulnerable sort of moment that occurs with her. So, yes, I had to process that out. There is a little bit. But I think there’s a duality with her in that regard in that she is a little bit of a scaredy-cat that tries to be all-tough all the time. And that’s kind of interesting.
 
Can you kind of give us an idea what’s going to happen with William? Do you think William is going to become really a long-term, very important character to the show?  
COLIN: That will be really, really interesting. There has been discussion about that and I asked about it pretty early on because they were like, “He might be good, he might be bad.” So I was like, “If he goes good, how would he integrate? Answer that question.” And then if it goes bad, I was like, “Well, I know how it goes if he goes bad.  He either dies or something.”  We all know that goes when a character goes bad.  So there are ways that you could integrate into town for sure. Although I’m trying to answer your question without giving anything away, so you were definitely right to say, “Wow, this is a tough one.” How about I say this: How William and Audrey interact is a problem. (Laughs)

Was there anything about William that wasn’t originally scripted for you that you added to this role?
COLIN: I’d like to think there was something I added to the role. It’d be awfully sad if there was nothing I added to the role. I mean I think that it’s a funny line, that you definitely try to shove as much in that box as you can so that it’s a very rich character. But having said that,they definitely wrote to my strengths. And either it was just a happy coincidence or they actually watched what I was doing and knew who I was and wrote to that. So it’s a chicken and egg. I don’t know what came first, but it came together really, really well.

Any chance that Lexie find a female friend to watch her back this season?
EMILY: I don’t know what it is about me and not having any girlfriends. Where are all the girls at? Let me think.  I mean there is a definite connection that she has with Jennifer. Jennifer and she have a connection. Whether or not that develops into any sort of a friendship or relationship, I definitely think it’s possible, but not like in seasons past. In seasons past, I definitely had like a buddy that kind of comes along and we have conversations and kind of download about stuff, and not so much.  But I wouldn’t get too discouraged that that the relationships for Audrey are non-existent, because I think that they are very much in play this year for sure. So I won’t get too bummed out for her because Lexie/Audrey, I think that she’s taken care of.
 
Do you have to kind of create your own backstory or do you have to kind of play it in the middle because you’re afraid you might not go on the right direction?
COLIN: I think it all depends on how much clout you have, to be honest. That’s my honest answer. When I started out and I would get a role, I would go in and do it as good as I could. And if they told me to make up a severe change, I would say yes, and I would do it. At this point, it’s so much nicer because I can go in and they say, “Hey, this is the character and this is the first script.” And I’ll say, “Okay, this is really cool, I really like this. I’m going to lean in to this kind of stuff because I really like that and I hope you guys like what I do with it.” And if they do, then it spirals up and just gets really good. Of course they can just ignore me and do what they want. But I mean that’s how I try to affect change, sort of look at the good in the script that they write and say, “Yes, I want to lean in to that stuff.” And maybe if they’re listening, the character will go that way.
 EMILY: I definitely agree with Colin in that it’s kind of like at the beginning you are very much taking your directions from the creatives that are creating this character. But what’s really great is that as you go on, the character really does become your own. And as you kind of start the conversations with everybody and say you head in a direction, if they sort of trust you with it, and if you are headed in the wrong direction, then you’ll end up hearing about it.  But I think as the show develops and especially having been in season four, I feel like I definitely feel like I have a voice in the conversation or if there’s something that needs to be said in terms of, well, Audrey would make this choice, wouldn’t make this choice, things like that. I feel like I definitely have the ear of some people to say, “Lt’s look at this and let’s talk about this before this happens.”
 COLIN: The funny thing was you talked about what we were just talking about, and that had been so discussed ahead of time. So you have this meeting where it was like, “Yes, this is what we want from this scene. We want there to be some chemistry and people thinking, oh maybe it’s a hookup kind of thing,” and then it’s going to go another way. And then as an actors, Emily and I are sort of like, “Okay, well, how do we do that?” So we’d sort of monkey around and find some stuff. So it’s really gratifying to hear that what we tried to do came across. That’s nice.
EMILY: It doesn’t really hurt at all that Colin’s super-charming. I mean, for a girl to act across charming leading guys, it’s always really helpful, because like I said, you’re kind of just there in the moment and whatever humor comes across, whatever looks come across, you can talk about it all you want.  But on the day, when you’re standing there on your mark, you have to be able to read each other and have fun with it and play around. And then that’s how the scenes come alive.
 COLIN: Yes. It’s all just conjecture until you’re with another actor and you go, “Oh, either we can both listen to each other,” or it’s one of those where like, no, we just missed. And then you don’t and there’s nothing you can do. If you don’t have chemistry with someone in the scenes, you can use every trick that you want but they’re tricks.  If you can’t listen and respond, you’re sort of done.
EMILY: Totally. I definitely agree. That’s why it helps when you like the other person you’re working with, just in in terms of like, “Oh yes, this person I enjoy them. It’s fun.” I can laugh with them but then you also feel like you feel safe enough to sort of talk about the scene and that the other person won’t get offended or anything like that.  Sometimes you come from different places on a scene, you have to be able to work it through and talk about it along with the director. But it’s definitely worked, that friendship or that base, or that sense of humor all helps the final product for sure.

Colin, what it was like working with Lucas for you?
COLIN: He’s a pain. From beginning to end, what a chore. (Laughs)
EMILY: He didn’t have anything to say about me? That evil, evil man.
COLIN: Typical Lucas. No, we did have a movie together a bunch of years ago, and he’s just a phenomenally nice guy sort of through and through. But I think that can be sort of be said of most of the people up here. It’s one of the reasons that I really wanted to do it.  I’ve been I’ve been familiar with these guys and been hanging out with them since their season premiere way back in the beginning. That was down in Los Angeles. And not knowing I would ever have a part in it, I’ve been at the premiere and the finale airings of every one that they’d done over at John’s house in Los Angeles. So being able to step into a group of people who they’re your friends them, and was sort of a big thing for me coming out of a show where I had a family. So, though I have nothing to say nice about Lucas, everyone else is lovely.
EMILY: Yes. Very true.
 
Can you talk about what it’s like working with Robert Maillet and Kyle Mitchell?
COLIN: They’re awesome. They’re great guys. I mean the first thing that Kyle and I had to do was fight and to sort of choreograph it. And typical to television, you choreograph this massive fight which is like, you spin you, and you spin you, and you swing this, and you see the file cut and it’s about six seconds long. So we got to know each other really, really quickly. And Robert’s amazing. I mean he’s a really funny guy. He and Adam know each other sort of tangentially from the wrestling world. So that was really fun to hear them sort of shoot stories back and forth while we’re waiting for stuff to do what.
 EMILY: And Kyle is so funny. If you go throughout the seasons, you’ll see him kind of sprinkled around. But it’s neat that we have him land this sort of really scharmy sort of role.  And then Robert is just the nicest guy you’ve ever met, so sweet, so kind, and just such a gentle giant, which is always really awesome. It’s just great to have real characters to play around with. They’re fantastic.
COLIN: Did they use the take when it aired when the two of them walked over completely in synch?  Yes. Okay. That was them. That was  those two working out a bit, and then they did it and Shawn, who was the director, he said, “I love it, let’s keep it.” So they’re very funny guys on their own.
 
How quickly we’ll start to see Lexie and William interact with everybody else from the HAVEN world. Is that something we can anticipate soon or is their storyline completely parallel for the season?
COLIN: Well, there’s a crossroad, absolutely. I mean I can’t tell you when it’d be shot. But, yes, there’s absolutely a crossover at some point in some way.
EMILY: Yes. I will second that. Yes. Rest your pretty little head, it won’t be too long.
 
What’s the story with Lexie’s nose ring?
EMILY:  We really wanted to have some sort of signature character thing. Every single character I have, I try to find what that is that I can hook on to.  And so for Lexie, just being sort of this very kind of rocker bar person, I had played actually a character that was kind of similar to Lexie and I was a little bummed that I never got to play her for longer. So when I saw Lexie and we were kind of dreaming up who she was, I just kept saying to my makeup artist and to my executive producer, “Man, it would just be so cool if she could have a nose ring. Nothing huge, nothing enormous that’s going to be distracting, but something delicate and dainty and it’s very her and it’d be very specifically Lexie.” And of course there were people that were a little afraid that that was too bold of a choice. But lucky for me, I have a network called Syfy that loved it and liked that distinction. So I was like so excited to have this little tiny thing because very rarely does a little blond like me get to kind of jump in to kind of characters and make them that sort of externally outgoing. So I was really, really excited to get a nose ring. I know everybody online has differing opinions on it, but at least people are talking about it. I think my biggest like triumph was when they took pictures of me in the Lexie look and they sent them to people and everybody was like, “That’s great. We would just like to see them with Emily wearing all that stuff now.” And everybody was like, “That is her. That’s her. She’s transformed into character.”And it was like, “No way, I can’t believe it, she looks fantastic.” So thank you, Colin, that was great. I was very nervous about being on camera after having a baby, but thanks to the amazingness of extensions, it all worked out.
 
How much input did you have into building this new Audrey character? It seems like in the past they were kind of predetermined or preset in a time era. Were you able to say: “I want to go here with this one?”
EMILY: A little bit. I mean I more so have the freedom with the characters once they’ve sort of been given to me.  I don’t really get to say, “This is what kind of character I would like to play.” But once they’ve been given to me and we sort of talk about who they are. Like I said, I do tend to fight tooth and nail for some things if I really believed that it’s a really great character choice. But that is about as much freedom as I have.  And then obviously like her vocal quality and her physicality and all of those things, they pretty much kind of let me run with it.  Very rarely do they sort of say, “No, or, that’s not what we want,” or whatnot. They kind of see what happens and then.  It’s kind of interesting. I’ve kind of always been like, “Has this always been the plan, that I would get to play all these different people? Or what if you hired me and I did just play just one dimension really well, would you want me to do as many characters? Is this a strength of mine? Do you like doing as many?” It’s kind of a very interesting thought.  But they haven’t yet asked me yet who would you want to play. Actually, no, they have, and I have given them that answer. Whether or not that ends up being able to happen is another question. But I’m hoping it does before I’m done with our time here for sure.
 COLIN:  I’m going to weigh in actually on Emily’s question, and just the funny thing about that with execution of a character when you get one because having been in your own body for 20, 30, 40 years what works what doesn’t. As much as you’re open to trying new things, you really sort of know how you do it and what works better on you. And that’s what you bring to the table.  So when a character is created for me anyway, I think I’m the same as Emily, where once they create it the version of that that you do well. So you sort of go, “Oh that’s great. If we can do this instead of that, that will accomplish what you want, this and that.” That’s sort of where I like to win, I like to weigh in as well when it’s coming down to costume and tone. 

Are there any of your own personal personality traits that you put in to these two characters?
COLIN: I throw in as much as I can cram in to the little container. I’m like, I’ll try anything that’ll work with a line. But my take on it is you put as much of your — like if it’s a mean guy, you put as much of your version of mean in there as you can, or something that’ll work for camera and all that jazz. So I’m always trying to discover new things about myself and put them in.
 EMILY: Yes. I mean I feel like obviously without even knowing you do that some people — Colin, you were just saying today that it’s hard for you to watch people that you know on TV sometimes and separate that from who they are because you know them so well — so I think naturally you sort of put that in, in your characters for sure.  And it takes it takes a lot of work I think sometimes when it comes to like posture and physicality, to really train your body for a prolonged amount of time to sort of do something differently than how you do it. But I think your view of the world is naturally infused in there. And there is actually a moment in episode five and a scene where Lexie was making a joke about something, and I totally threw in something that was a joke of me and my friends, what we do at home as like a little shout-out to them. So you do get a chance to do that occasionally. And when you do, it’s really, really fun.
 
Now that we know that being in the barn, like time is different, how old do you think Audrey is?
EMILY: Oh man. I don’t know how old Audrey is specifically. I like the number 27 years. No, I don’t really know. And I think if I did know, I think that’d be probably something that I can’t say. But I will honestly tell you, I don’t really know. That’s a very large question.
 
How long do you think that William has known her?
COLIN: God, I know. There’s one thing, like it’d be cool if it was thousands of years, but maybe that doesn’t feel quite right. But then to say like 432…I’d like to think a long time in an epic sense, but I wouldn’t put a year on it. Is that okay?  Because we had all sorts of discussions about we want him to sort of do what Agent Howard did, but he’s not the next Agent Howard, or is he? You have to have other elements of things in there. So, good. I’m glad that came across. We tried to put that in there. Whether or not it’s a red herring, I can’t say. But definitely it’s good, excellent.

Lucas mentioned that William brings forth a lot of emotions in Nathan. Can you expand on that at all? And were your scenes with him especially intense?
COLIN: Not so much intense in a sort of cage-match kind of intense. But I think the things that I know, the things that my character knows, turn the screw for the certain people in the town. And I think that that forces certain characters to deal with their own problems. And I think the stuff that I know or not about Audrey/Lexie is really makes him think and forces him to sort of step up or step down or clarify what he’s doing. So that’s always a fun time for a character.  When you get to advance your own mythology. And the intensity with that because it’s very real.  The standalone episodic stuff that you do, it’s great, but you do it it’s a new trouble every week. But the long-term mythology is sort of what you hang your hat on and becomes the skeleton of the character. And so when there are shifts in that, it’s always a really fun thing. So that I think probably what he’s referring to. And those scenes were really fun to do.
 
Do you think the audience will ever learn Audrey’s true first name and more about who that person was? Is that something William might be involved with?
EMILY: Yes, I definitely think it’s something that he might be involved with. I think for me it’s not so much my concern that the audience necessarily learns what her true identity will be, but will it resonate with that true identity? Because the thing that I sort of struggled with in setting up Lexie for the beginning of the season was the concern I had in that I love launching a new character and now this is the first time that I’d been able to actually play that character for a prolonged amount of episodes — but how do I feel about Audrey not being there? And how do I feel about her being missing? And will the audience miss her like the characters miss her?  And so some of the stuff I’ve been reading on Twitter that sort of confirms that, about liking Lexie but missing Audrey, and I love that people miss Audrey because I feel like that’s what the other characters are going through and what she kind of feels about her own self. So my concern isn’t necessarily that they will understand who she is as much as they will resonate with who she is if and when she finds herself and kind of loved her just the same, because they’ve been with Audrey for three seasons obviously. But what happens if Audrey goes away? What happens if Audrey changes? What happens to these friends that you sort of made throughout these years? That’s kind of the bigger question for me in terms of what the audience connects with. And just in terms of an actor to a character too, trying to make sure that I do her justice and play her in a really truthful way and don’t let go of her in the midst of all these other changes because I do think she is such a key part of what HAVEN is.
 
Are we possibly ever going to see like more incarnations before Sarah and Lucy?
EMILY: Do you want to see more incarnations of hers? That’s my question. I don’t know.
COLIN: Well, I guess we can say that we shot a scene today that would definitely shed light on that.
EMILY: Wow. Colin has given you gold. Yes, definitely would shed light on that for sure.  I think that’s why I always want to ask that because that’s my huge question: is what incarnations would we see of her? Are there more? Is she locked in something, trying to get out?  I don’t know. That’s the big questions of this season and that’s one of the things that makes the show so exciting.

Will we see Sarah’s son James, the Colorado Kid, resurfacing in time this season?
EMILY: I don’t think we’ll see him resurface in a physical sense of the word, but I think he’s always definitely a present part of the story here and there for sure.

What are you two most excited about for HAVEN fans to see this season?
COLIN: I would say this season. I’m really excited for them to see this season. From what the feedback we’ve been given from the post-production people and the executives, that they’re unbelievably proud of the season, that it’s coming together in a way that they’re really excited about and maybe even one of the best seasons that they’ve seen. So when you hear stuff like that, you sort of can’t wait for the whole season to get out.
EMILY: Yes, definitely. And the thing that I always enjoy the most about HAVEN is the relationships between people and how those changed or altered by the external circumstances. So for me, I think my favorite moments of this season are between some of the key relationships that are set up and how those change or are affected or altered by all the different variables that we draw into play.  So it’s really exciting to see Lucas react to some of the things he has to react to, a new way. And it’s really exciting to see William and Lexie and that new relationship and the just the different elements of humor you get within that. So, to me, the thing I’m looking forward to the most is the relationship aspect of the season.
COLIN: I’m going to throw in also on that. I mean one of the joys of working on this show with these people is that they’re all really fantastic people. So all day long we watch each other struggle trying to get certain moments, certain ways on camera, and that’s where a lot of the humor on set comes from, when you’re failing to get there or you finally got there. And I mean, just I’m looking forward to seeing all those little victories put together and so we can watch them together. And it’s just nice to be proud of the people you work with when you when you look back. So that’s something I’m looking forward to.

To see what is next for Lexie and William and if they ultimately end up more friend or foe, be sure to tune in for all new episodes of HAVEN on Friday nights at 10:00 p.m. on Syfy.  (For those participating in the Twitter live-tweets, make sure to use the #DiscoverHaven hashtag to join in the fun!)
