A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit the set of Fringe and talk to the four principle actors. We toured the set, talked the actors, ate their food and generally had a blast. My first interview of the series was with lead actress Anna Torv. Torv was convinced that she had met me previously although I assured her this was the first time. After a bit of memory searching, she decided I looked exactly like her morning barista. Although that’s the second time in my life someone was convinced I was someone else, I think the mishap helped to loosen us up for the interview.
And I had a lot to talk to Anna Torv about. Olivia has been set up to be the heroine of this war between universes and yet, we don’t get see much of that right now. “I feel like Olivia hasn’t been activated,” Torv says when asked about Dunham’s destiny. Although Olivia Dunham is already a strong female character, she has the potential to be so much more and Torv can’t wait.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Anna Torv and I talk about why Olivia is such a “slow burn” and whether or not there’s any hope for an Olivia / Peter romance in the future. We threw in a couple of fan questions from AnnaTorv.com for good measure. So take a look and let us know what you think. Where do you think this season of Fringe is going?
