Lost Girl - The Mercury: Anna Silk Interview

THE MERCURY: Smooth as Silk

December 28, 2012

BEING involved in a cult sci-fi or fantasy series has a way of simplifying an actor's CV to the point where they are best known for that one role, no matter what else they've done.

In the case of Lost Girl star Anna Silk, landing the role of a butt-kicking succubus who feeds off sexual energy was the job that finally deflected attention away from her first TV appearance.


Before Lost Girl, the Canadian actress was best known for playing a grumpy, cigarette-craving flight attendant in a Nicoderm patch commercial.

"For a long time I was getting recognised at airports by people who thought I was a flight attendant. That commercial really took off," Silk laughed.

"But that's definitely changing now. People still talk about that commercial but it's more about Lost Girl now, which is great..."

... In the third season of Lost Girl, which begins soon on Foxtel's SF (sci-fi) channel [Australia], Bo delves deeper into her own past and finds that being fae is more complicated than simply choosing between light and dark...

... Silk was careful not to give too much away about the highly anticipated third season of Lost Girl, but said there were a few exciting developments on the horizon.

"If I was to give season three a theme, it would be all about discovery," she said.

"Bo really learns that being fae is more complicated than simply choosing between light or dark.

"She undergoes probably the biggest challenges of her life, physically and mentally, and has to come to grips with who she is."

Lost Girl season 3 premieres on SF on Thursday, January 10, at 8.30pm,
fast-tracked from the US.

In Canada, Lost Girl airs every Sunday at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) on Showcase, with the catch-up show Lost Girl Confidential airing before the start of the new season on Sunday, January 6 at 8:00 PM (ET/PT).

In the US, Lost Girl season three premieres Monday, January 14, 2013 at 10/9C on Syfy.
