Meaghan Rath Exclusive Interview BEING HUMAN

by Christina Radish Posted: January 14th

On SyFy’s re-imagining of the popular BBC television series Being Human, Montreal native Meaghan Rath plays a ghost named Sally, who is a young woman searching for the truth behind her early demise. In life, she was vivacious, smart, funny, driven and excited about her engagement to her college sweetheart. She now lives in the apartment they once shared, along with a vampire named Aidan (Sam Witwer) and a werewolf named Josh (Sam Huntington/read our interview with him here), as she learns to navigate her new ghostly existence.

In a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Meaghan Rath talked about how excited she is to be a part of Being Human, how she hopes that fans of the original series will gave this version a chance, the fact that 13 episodes will give them a chance to expand and add storylines, and the unusual challenge of playing a character that no one can touch because she is a ghost...

... How did you come to be a part of Being Human?

RATH: I remember getting the sides and the script from my agent, with a breakdown of what the show was about. I didn’t know about the British show before I started preparing for the audition. I remember immediately connecting with the story and the character, and I auditioned. I was called back a couple of times to do some auditions with Adam Kane, who’s our executive producer, and he directed the first two episodes and the finale, and I remember really connecting with him. And then, they flew me to L.A. to do the screen test, and that was that. At the screen test, Adam came out and gave us all a little individual pep talk and gave us some last minute direction, and when he was talking to me, I was just in my head going, “This can’t be it. This can’t be the last time I work with this guy.” He had so many great ideas, and I loved what he was saying and how he was saying it to me. We really connected and I was like, “This can’t be it! I have to get this.” So, it all worked out...

Primeval - Total SciFi Online: Ciaran McMenamin Interview

Ciaran McMenamin: The ARC Knight

Monday 10 January 2011

In series four of Primeval, Ciaran McMenamin takes charge as new ARC team leader Matt Anderson, appointed following the disappearance of Jason Flemyng’s Danny Quinn. The Irish actor, who first worked with series co-creator Adrian Hodges on the TV adaptation of David Copperfield in 1999, sat down with Paul Simpson on set in Dublin during filming of episode four…

... What were your first thoughts on getting the role of Matt?

CM: "When they asked me to do it, my initial process was getting my head around what it was. I tend to do very gritty, realistic, naturalistic dramas, and the odd period thing. It was instantly appealing because it was something different.

I’d seen a very early episode, possibly even one of the very first ones, but I hadn’t watched anything else. I had to decide whether to sit and watch 10 hours of it, or go into the world in my own imagination, which is pretty much what I’ve done, so I can keep it real. I can jump in and keep it all inside my head.
I was over the moon and I thought it was going to be a completely different challenge: “I’m going to be spending the next seven months chasing a man with a stick and a tennis ball pretending it’s a dinosaur!” I haven’t done a lot of green screen work; there are always a couple of bits in anything you do now, but this is pretty extensive.

It’s a physical challenge as well. When I read the first two scripts, I could really imagine myself doing it. I could see myself as Matt, and I could see the whole process piling out. I was excited about the whole idea. You kind of know instantly when you read something. You might go, “That’s not really right, I wouldn’t watch that; it’s not my cup of tea.” And there was a bit of me that thought that might be the case originally because it’s not something I would watch. But I really responded to the scripts. I thought it was going to be a lot of fun, and I’m just enjoying every day...

Primeval is currently airing on ITV1 on Saturday nights (UK) and in the US on BBC America at 9pm.
