EUREKA - SYFY STREAM: A Conversation with Eureka‘s Tembi Locke

July 5, 2011
By Chad Colvin

While the annual pilgrimage to Vancouver for the Creation Entertainment Official Stargate convention is always fun, I flew to British Columbia this spring with the knowledge that this year’s trip — intended to be my last for some time — was going to be especially awesome. Just a few scant days prior to the trip, I received an official invite to visit Vancouver Film Studios — home to series like Hellcats and Fringe. But the reason for my visit was to spend time on the sets of Syfy’s summer hit series Eureka.

Over the course of a day and a half, the production team at Eureka granted us amazing access … including tours of all the sets, the chance to sit behind the cameras watching dailies of next summer’s early Season Five episodes being filmed, and exclusive one-on-one sitdowns with the entire cast of the series. As we lead up to the premiere of Season 4.5 on July 11, SciFi Stream is proud to present this daily interview series for Eureka fans!

Our first chat is with Tembi Locke, who joined the series last summer (at the beginning of Season Four) as Dr. Grace Monroe. During our talk, Tembi talks about her acting roots, her experiences on another cult favorite sci-fi series, her time on Eureka thus far, and some tiny tidbits of what may be to come!

Special thanks go to the Syfy network, NBC Universal, Vancouver Film Studios, Jaime Paglia, Matt Hastings, Eric Wallace and the entire Eureka production team for their support and graciousness...


... SFS: What qualities does Eureka have in your mind that make it stand out from other genre series and why do you think some of the franchises that have been out there that were previously successful are having more trouble now? What do you think has changed?

TL: "You know, that’s a complex question. You know … to get into the mind of television execs and the audience and sort of where we are in the world right now. I can speak first to what I think people resonate with with Eureka, which is that balance of both the humor, the science and the heart. Its overall tone, and holding those in equal measure."

SFS: Do you think that part of it, too, is that there’s so much going on in the world today that the escapism ...

TL: "Absolutely! Absolutely. I think it’s important. And also the fact that this is a show that I feel like a family could sit down in front of. A 10-year-old kid is going to be totally hooked into the science and the gadgetry and the inventions that are coming up. The parents are connected to what the show is saying overall about where science is and how government fits into the role of science. You can just connect to the relationships that are involved. I mean, there is something for everyone. I think all shows have that, but Eureka finds that unique balance with it. It’s great..."

THE CLOSER - BOSTON HERALD: Sedgwick closes in on end of ‘Closer’

By Amy Amatangelo
Sunday, July 10, 2011

Kyra Sedgwick took a year to decide that it was time to leave “The Closer.”

It was a really agonizing decision,” Sedgwick told the Herald in a recent telephone interview. Last year, the actress won an Emmy for her portrayal of Los Angeles Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. The series remains one of cable’s top-rated shows.

I just felt like, as an actor, I really wanted to do other things creatively, and I just felt like, ‘Let’s leave when everybody still wants us around,’ ” she said. “And I have been away from my family for six months out of every year for the last seven years. That’s a lot, and you miss a lot of things.


Kyra Sedgwick and Jon Tenney

"The Closer” begins its seventh and final season tomorrow at 9 p.m. on TNT. Ten episodes air this summer, five in the winter and the six final ones next summer. Though Sedgwick doesn’t know how the series will end, the premiere kicks off a story that finds Brenda at the center of an internal investigation.

This whole season is really about her come-uppance,” she said. “All the years in which she’s elicited confessions in a morally, legally ambiguous way comes back to kick her in the butt this year. She really comes up against the politics of the system. I don’t want her to leave on a bad note, but it needs to be something really compelling for her to think, ‘It’s time. I have to go.’ And we are leading up to that...

ALPHAS - STARRY CONSTELLATION MAGAZINE: Warren Christie and Zak Penn Interview

by: Jamie Steinberg

... Q) Zak, can you talk about the Alphas and how they’re a metaphor for tapping into your true potential as opposed to superheroes?

Zak Penn: "Well interestingly, I mean, obviously when you do a superhero movie usually that is working on a metaphorical level, right, because no matter how Jean Grey’s struggle with turning into Phoenix is obviously so extreme but it’s operating on a metaphorical level. I think with Alpha’s part of the point is these people’s abilities and problems are so close to reality that sometimes it’s not only not metaphorical, it allows us to actually tell the same human story. You look at Hicks’ story. It’s pretty close to the story that any of us would have who have a talent that kind of we have trouble managing. Even look, there’s a long history of writers who have an instrument that they can access occasionally but when they can’t they turn to drinking or turn to other things to manage that problem. And Warren can speak better to this but we really tried to keep both the upside and the downside of their problems so close to human that we end up writing stories that are, I mean, I don’t mean to get all semantic and a lecture about semantics versus metaphorical but it’s actually a real - it’s fun. I mean, on the X-Men it’s pretty hard to write a story about Wolverine’s problems, paying his rent and working in a grocery store, whereas with Hicks those are real issues."

Warren Christie: "And byproducts from what has led him up to this point in his life. Like Zak said, I think Hicks sees this as much more of a curse than a gift because he has known there has been something different about him but it seems to always have failed him at the biggest times. So because of that, like Zak pointed out, because Hicks is so agile you can have something like a professional athlete. Professional athletes go through a lot of different things where they have these highs and then because of that they have these very big lows. And I think it’s that fine line and that balancing at that is what makes each of the characters so rich in the show..."

Warehouse 13 July 11

WAREHOUSE 13 - STARRY CONSTELLATION MAGAZINE: Eddie McClintock, Allison Scagliotti and Saul Rubinek Interview

by: Jamie Steinberg

... Q) You’re well into Season 3 now, you’ve done a lot of episodes. Can you tell me what your favorite episode has been so far?


Allison Scagliotti: "My favorite happens right in the middle of the season, it’s episode six, called Don’t Hate the Player. And this episode has everything. It’s probably our most absurd, to date, I think in the history of Warehouse. There are sort of Tron-meets-Dungeons-and-Dragons episode with an amazing guest cast. We all plus get to do crazy things and play sort of heightened versions of ourselves and also very different versions of ourselves. And that’s the episode that heralds the return of Mr. (Neil Grayson) to Warehouse 13."


Eddie McClintock: "I would say Don’t Hate the Player is definitely one of my favorites in the - of the season. It’s things like that just start being - they just started being done on television. The fact that we got it by the network and they let us make the show, it speaks a lot towards the amount of confidence that they have in our writers and our show runner and Jack Kenny and us as actors to pull this off. It was so much fun and like Allison said, there’s really some absurd stuff but it’s actually funny. It’s not just silly and stupid. It’s stuff that will make you laugh which obviously is always very important. My other favorite would be, there’s an episode called Love Sick where I had to play being drunk and - and for quite a bit of it and it’s always - I’ve only had to maybe do that one other time. But it was really challenging for me to walk the line between someone playing drunk and someone who’s actually looks the part. So because that was a big challenge for me as an actor, I’ll be interested to see how it turned out. And I hear that it turned out okay. So I guess the payoff is that it’s always nice when you’re trying to convey something and you’re able to actually do that. So those were my two favorites, I’d say."


Saul Rubinek: And that episode, Love Sick, was one of my favorites too and the other one too that you mentioned, Don’t Hate the Player, I got to play a kind of Artie - you know, as if he were doing a Monty Python movie. And it was an offshoot of Artie. And in Love Sick, Artie’s bedroom is introduced and it’s an extraordinary set; gets used a couple of times during the season. Terrific times. But what - this is an opportunity and I think Allison and Eddie will join in is to talk about the unsung hero. We’ve sung praises of Jack Kenny and our co-stars and how well we get along and we have wonderful guest stars. But the unsung hero of our series is really Franco De Cotiis, who is our production designer who is a magician, who has created a look for this show that I will - I really believe he should be nominated for an Emmy..."

TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY - NEW YORK MAGAZINE: Torchwood’s John Barrowman on ‘Man Sex,’ Glee, and Closeted A-Listers

By: Gwynne Watkins

After six years as the Doctor Who universe's token Yankee, John Barrowman is coming to America. Torchwood: Miracle Day (a Starz/BBC co-production) brings the U.K. alien-investigation drama Stateside, with Barrowman's swaggering, omnisexual time-traveler Captain Jack Harkness engaged by the CIA to determine why people are no longer dying. In this fourth installment, Torchwood has evolved into something less Doctor Who and more Battlestar Galactica: a bleak, high-tension sci-fi thriller. For Barrowman, it's the role of a lifetime, not least of all because he's channeled his U.K. fame into a virtual one-man entertainment franchise. The actor-singer-dancer is a popular British-TV host, theatrical star, and cabaret performer, as well as an outspoken role model for handsome gay actors everywhere. Vulture spoke to Barrowman about Captain Jack's revitalized sex life, Torchwood's darker direction, the big gay secret of Hollywood, and whether the actor missed a golden opportunity by doing sci-fi in the age of Glee...


... Q: One thing I noticed about the new series is that it remains fairly earthbound. Are we going to see any pterodactyls?

John Barrowman: "You know, every year Torchwood has become something a little different than it was before. It's still sci-fi, but it doesn't just deal with spaceships and aliens all the time, because we've done that. Our science fiction is more psychological. Our sister show, Doctor Who, is the one that does that: talking cats and cybermen and Daleks. Which is brilliant. But we're something completely different now. That's not to say that it will never happen..."

EUREKA - SCIFI STREAM: A Conversation with Eureka‘s Neil Grayston

July 7, 2011
By Chad Colvin

Today’s installment of SciFi Stream’s interview series with the full cast of Eureka — number three of seven — belongs to none other than actor Neil Grayston, who has portrayed Douglas Fargo on the series since its inception. In our chat with Neil he discusses his acting roots, how much Fargo has changed since the pilot, last summer’s crossover event with Warehouse 13, and much more!

Special thanks go to the Syfy network, NBC Universal, Vancouver Film Studios, Jaime Paglia, Matt Hastings, Eric Wallace and the entire Eureka production team for their support and graciousness...


... SFS: You’re already filming Season Five as we speak and you’ve lived with the character for years now. What aspects of Fargo would you still like to see explored going forward that haven’t been touched on yet?

NG: "It kind of has been touched on, but I’d like to see his family again. They had the grandparent but that was like Season One, I think. So it’d be nice to see that side of him now rather than just have him be alone.

You’re going to see a lot more, especially in the second half of Season Four. There’s a lot more interpersonal relationship kind of stuff where he really does actually connect with people on a more mature level. I liked seeing that going on. I mean, I would never want it to get into super soap opera territory or anything like that, because there’s still got to be the funny and the interesting and the pushing buttons, making things blow up...
