Sam Huntington Exclusive Interview BEING HUMAN

by Christina Radish Posted: January 13, 2011

On the re-imagining of the popular BBC series Being Human, premiering on SyFy January 17th, actor Sam Huntington plays Josh, a young man whose bright future was hijacked when he was turned into a werewolf and forced to abandon his family and the life he once knew with no explanation. He isolated himself, living on the fringes of society and escaping to the woods each full moon for his excruciating transformation into a werewolf. Then he met Aidan (Sam Witwer), a vampire whose friendship has given him the prospect of a normal life, with a job as an orderly in the local hospital, and a new place where the two live with a ghost named Sally (Meaghan Rath), who is on her own journey to navigate a new existence.

During a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Sam Huntington talked about his decision to sign on for a television series, how much he has enjoyed working with his co-stars, how nerve-wracking it is to live up to the quality and popularity of the original version, what it’s like to go through the excruciating transformation process in becoming a werewolf, and how he hopes that people really connect with and enjoy the show. He also talked about how exciting it is to finally have Dylan Dog: Dead of Night being released in 2011 and said that he’s writing his own film script that he’s looking to do a role in...

... Because you have 13 episodes, instead of the 6 in the first season of the BBC series, are you using those extra episodes to expand the character’s storylines, or are you also adding new storylines to fill that time?

: Yes, we’re doing all of that. I have limited knowledge of the BBC series, but I fully intend to watch it now that we’ve shot our first season. There’s no danger in watching what they’ve done now, and I’m very curious. But, from what I understand, we’re broadening the world, in every sense of that. We build a family for Josh, we get a little bit deeper into the vampire lore with Aidan (Sam Witwer) and we see more of Sally’s (Meaghan Rath) backstory and, subsequently, what happens to Sally is far more expanded. Beyond that, there are big elements that are added, that are different and completely new to our series. Those start filtering in after the first and second episode. Hopefully, people will take the first two episodes with a grain of salt, knowing that these are our jumping off points. We have to go where the show takes us, but beyond that, we start broadening...
