TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY - WHAT'S ON TV (UK): Torchwood's Eve: 'Gwen's a kick-ass mum!'

Jul 13, 2011

As Torchwood: Miracle Day continues on BBC1, Eve Myles tells What’s On TV what more to expect from her character Gwen, how she’s loving motherhood and what it was like to film Torchwood in Hollywood...


... Q: Gwen’s now a mum, yet we’ve seen her get caught up in the dramatic events of the latest series of Torchwood. Couldn’t she have plumped for the quieter life with her family?

Eve Myles: “Being a new mum has meant massive complications for Gwen, and she’s more feisty than ever because of it. The goings on with Torchwood are her adrenalin rush, but she and Rhys are trying to be the best parents to Anwen as possible. Getting drawn into the latest events of the Miracle Day goes against her maternal instincts, but she’s probably secretly excited about it, too. She just loves being a warrior, running about firing guns and bazookas and karate-kicking people - and there’s a lot of her being a kick-ass mum in this series!

EUREKA - THE MORTON REPORT: Sheriff's Department: Interview With Eureka's Colin Ferguson

By Steve Eramo
July 13, 2011

... Production on season 4.5 of Eureka wrapped in October 2010 and even before it began airing this month on Syfy, the cameras began rolling again this past April on the fifth season. When it comes to Ferguson’s character, viewers can look forward to seeing Jack Carter become more comfortable with his Eureka surroundings as well as with those around him, especially Allison [Blake].

I think it is part of the longer progression for my character,” muses the actor. “Back in the first season Jack was nervous about being a part of anything. He’d been burned by his previous relationship and was bad at being a father. From there we watched him embrace his daughter as the greatest woman in his life and she eventually goes off to university. We also watched as Jack decided that he really wanted to be a part of this community and the lives of those around him in a profound way.

The next logical step, which is what we’re focusing on right now, is that my character wants someone to share his life with. He seriously wants to open up and be a part of a relationship, and that’s what I’m playing in season five. Jack is opening up the boundaries of protectionism, or should I say lowering them, and embracing the future and what will hopefully be a lovely marriage and a lovely life...

TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY - THE TELEGRAPH (UK): Bill Pullman: Torchwood's surprising new villain

Hollywood star Bill Pullman and Torchwood hero John Barrowman tell Catherine Gee about the new series of the Doctor Who spin-off.

By Catherine Gee
13 Jul 2011

Bill Pullman is sitting beside three large boxes of exotic fruit. After an early morning trip to Shepherd’s Bush market, he has spent the day proudly feeding mangoes to journalists. This certainly makes for an unconventional interview – as I ask him questions, Pullman is busy delighting in his brightly coloured fruit and licking the juice from his fingers.

But unconventional seems to be Pullman’s style these days. The actor, 57, who’s best known for playing the American president in the sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day is reaching into darker depths to play a murderous paedophile in the new series of the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, which begins on BBC One tonight. When it came to casting such a macabre role, the likeable Pullman doesn’t strike you as an obvious choice.

I didn’t even think about it until halfway into shooting,” he recalls. “I said to [executive producer] Julie Gardner, ‘Why did you cast me? Is there something about me I don’t know?’ She said, ‘Because you’re kind of America’s sweetheart.’ They were looking to destabilise viewers...

AMANDA TAPPING - SANCTUARY: Tapping Tuesday Twitter July 13, 2011

#TappingTuesday (or Wednesday...) we go with Twitter questions

Q1 - @ElleDris - When you are shooting, is each episode random (not chronological order), then merge scenes to make it in order? Thx, Elle

A1 - We shoot scenes according to locations. Eg. all Magnus’ office on same day. Then the episode is edited together.


Q2 - @ephinyzon- In honor of Astronaut Sandra Magnus & the Atlantis crew, has our Dr. Magnus ever had a dealing with anything space related?

A2 - I actually don't think so. I think she's concentrated on Earth based endeavors.


STS-135 Mission Specialist Sandra Magnus

Q3 - @imac_van - Read the article about your driving the Tesla, and it made me wonder, what was your first car?

A3 - A very beat up 1971 Mercury Comet.

[NOTE: click here for the Tesla car article.]


Q4 - @borntorun1075 - What are you most looking forward to at #ComicCon next week?

A4 - Fan questions!!!! And seeing old friends.

Thanks again for all your questions! xox

Hi again! Here is the Q+A from the Sanctuary Facebook page too. More questions from you, more answers...!

Q1 - Taylor Craig - What do you like to do on set when you're not filming?

A1 a - I like to hang out with my fellow actors and laugh and sing songs and generally figure out how we can drive each other nuts...

A1 b - ...which by the way, is a very short drive.

Q2 - Darren Logsdon - I was wondering if we will see anymore of the super abnormals? And also is ryan robbins as funny ouside the camera?

A2 - Yes, I hope so! And Ryan is a big goofball. He's nuttier than squirrel poo.


Q3 - Andrea Beyer - Is there something specific you wish would be invented to make your everyday life easier? :)

A3 - Small portals through which we could get from point A to point B quickly.....hmmm... reminds me of something... :)


Q4- Jenn Scheffler - If Magnus were to have a bumper sticker on the back of her car what do you think it would say?!

A4 - Honk if you're fabulously abnormal!


Thanks again everyone! xox
