Fringe season 4


by Jamie Steinberg

... Q) So I wanted to ask, going back a little bit about what you talk about which is this universe this year has created a very different dynamic ... what we had always expected that closeness between you and Walter and this universe we don't really have that. But yet, you are now out in the field. You're also having more interaction with Olivia and Lincoln. And so what has that kind of brought out in your character and what has that brought out being able to, kind of, interact with them more in a very different way?

Jasika Nicole: "Yes. I think the difference between the relationship with Astrid and Walter was a little bit sad for me to part with. But what I gained from that besides, you know, kind of creating this idea that she's the only person that's welcoming to Peter is like you said, she's got this really lovely kind of like BFF relationship with Olivia that we never got to see before. And I absolutely love that. I think that the fans have really been into that too because this whole time we've had–these are the two women that work together the closest because, of course, Nina is a part of the show. But she works at Massive Dynamics and is a bit separate. So when we would have all these themes and you would never see Olivia and Astrid like hanging out and talking together. It was like, oh, why wouldn't they be friends. You know, they're both really smart. They have a very similar difficult job. They work with the same crazy people. So that was a really, really cool part of this season is seeing Olivia and Astrid hang out together. And now I have this idea that they probably like, you know, go out for wine twice a month or go to see a movie or something like that because they're with each other so much of the day that they have to depend and rely on each other more so than what we see in the actual episodes..."

Fringe season four airs Friday at 9/8C on FOX.
