STARPULSE: Scoop from Being Human Stars Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager and Sam Witwer

The third season of Being Human, the U.S. version, premiered on SyFy on Monday, January 14. Recently, some of the main cast members, including Sam Huntington (Josh), Kristen Hager (Nora) and Sam Witwer (Aidan), as well as show runner Anna Fricke, participated in two press conference calls to discuss season 3.

If you haven’t seen the season premiere, you might want to stop reading now for fear of spoilers.

If you saw the premiere, you saw that Josh is no longer a werewolf, Sally is now human and Aidan is out of the ground. Plus, there’s a plague killing vampires and a witch dug up Ray’s dead body.

A new episode of Being Human premieres tonight at 9 pm ET on SyFy.

Here are some of the highlights from the two calls:


... Witwer on his character’s relationship with Surin last season.

The thing with the Surin relationship is that while there was love there and affection and a lot of attempt at making it work … it was like okay we're telling the story of a destructive relationship and it's not necessarily either of their faults that it's destructive it's just that the circumstances and everything that have gone down make it destructive. So he's coming out of that definitely mindful of what it caused him to do to other people and yes we definitely see the three roommates interacting a lot more this year which is great fun for the cast considering we all like each other.


Huntington on not playing a werewolf right now.

What’s cool about Josh as a character is, whether or not he’s a werewolf, he’s a really layered guy. He’s a really dynamic character, so you know, the werewolf thing certainly is - adds, you know, a huge other layer but the character itself is really rich. So for me, you know, it doesn’t change much other than feeling slightly, like, I’m on the outside, you know, looking in.

Hager on Nora’s journey as a werewolf.

"She went through her phase where she absolutely loved it then and then, you know, by the end of Season Two, she’d seen, like, the very, very dark side of, like, what this new found aggression means and the consequences that come with that. And so it scares her and so, no, she’s like, by the end of Season Two, she’s very much questioning what this is and whether this is what she wanted and is really trying to grasp any sense of humanity that’s left inside of her. So no, she’s definitely - it’s definitely a daily struggle with her too and Season Three brings, like, a whole new set of obstacles and struggles that, like, being a wolf, you know, comes with being a wolf.

Fricke on bringing back the Bishop character in flashbacks even after he died in season one.

I know how the British series brought him back and we have discussed that, what we always want to be careful about, you know, our particular show is that we want to make sure that we're not just - if we bring - if we brought him back in that way we would want to make sure we just sort of weren't repeating the same dynamic and so that particular way may not of fit in well with this season, but the great thing about a supernatural show is that you don't really ever have to say no to anything because anything is obviously possible. So, you know, that's a fun idea to play with, that's not exactly how we do it this year but, you know, we do try to find organic ways to work Bishop in because Bishop is, you know, a huge part of the makeup of Aidan's long life and is always present with him in a way, so that's sort of how we try to address it...
