SFX MAGAZINE: Being Human USA: Meaghan Rath On Playing Ghost Sally

April 6 2013
by Tara Bennett

After three seasons charting its own supernatural course in America and abroad, Being Human USA finally arrives in the UK next week (Thursday 11 April, 9pm on Watch) with a wee bit of trepidation from some involved. “It is a strange that it’s now airing in the UK. It’s a little uncomfortable,” actress Meaghan Rath laughs to SFX.

Rath plays ghostly Sally, a character initially very similar to Annie (Lenora Crichlow) from Toby Whithouse’s UK series. Actually fans of the UK show will feel some premise déjà vu at first view with the ghost, a vampire and a werewolf as flatmates foundation exactly the same. However, Rath asks Brits to give them a try as their show veers into original territory quickly as the series rolls along...

... SFX Magazine: For fans of the UK series, what’s your pitch to give your show a try?

Meaghan Rath: “I think that because we made a choice very early on not to watch the British series before we completed our first season we were able to establish our characters as people that were personal and not influenced by the original characters. We laid down a unique foundation and the writers were able cater to our personalities and write for us which evolved into something totally different. I would say that has really changed the outcome of the show and where it is now in its third season. But at the core it’s about the same thing; these people who are desperate to blend into society. Our characters are desperate to blend into society and it’s what we as humans take for granted every day...”

Being Human USA begins airing in the UK on Watch, Thursday 11 April at 9pm.

NEW episodes of Being Human season three conclude on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 9/8C on Syfy (US), with the season finale, 'Ruh-Roh.' CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE EPISODE TRAILER.
