The news and scoop about Fringe just isn’t going to stop until we get to the season three premiere next week, but you won’t hear me complaining.
TV Addict was able to have a few moments to sit down with Blair Brown and get her thoughts on the upcoming third season of Fringe, and she didn’t hold anything back. Brown plays the character Nina Sharp on the show and she wanted to let the fans know that all the hype for the new season is to be believed because there are some big things to come.
Here are some questions and her intriguing answers from the interview.
Looking back for a moment on last May’s finale, are we correct in recalling that we have yet to meet Nina’s alternate universe counterpart?
Blair Brown: “And we still haven’t! At this point, she is conspicuously absent from the other side and I assume there is a reason for that. The first and third episodes of this season are about the other side while the second and fourth are about this side because there is an awful lot of business we have to deal with now that William (Bell) is gone.“
Is there a possibility that our Nina doesn’t have an alternate? Could she be dead?
Blair Brown: “I’m not sure and I don’t know. You see, I’m not a person who asks the writers those kinds of questions.“
Really? As an actor, one would think that you’d be interested, at the very least for job security!
Blair Brown: “(Laughs) We’ve signed contracts, I’m not worried. I just like being surprised by things. For instance, this scene that Josh (Jackson) and I just played where he’s saying “So, how do you feel about Walter taking over Massive Dynamic?” Nina responds with, “My personal feelings are not the important part. But I think he’s really smart.
Now ask yourself, is that the truth? I think the thing that’s fun about playing Nina is that whatever is on the page, you play the opposite because we know in particular that Peter and Nina are fairly duplicitous characters on this side of the world.“
Now if she doesn’t make you realize that you have to be at least somewhat intelligent to watch Fringe, then I don’t know what will. Brown revealed some interesting tidbits that make Anna Torv‘s comments about a “reboot” make a little more sense now. So the alternate universe will get its own episodes while the current world gets its own. Very cool and very interesting because it makes it seem like we’re getting twice the Fringe while it still just remains one season of one show.
Can’t wait for the season premiere on Thursday, September 23 on Fox.
