Interview from TV Guide, Anna and Josh are so adorable ?
Hello everyone! I’m back from my hiatus and some updates on the site for you! Season 5 of Fringe premieres this friday with the episode “5×01 Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11” and it goes to 2036 where “4×19 Letters of Transit” left off.
The end of Fringe:
“This season is designed to be a love letter to the fans.”
Back in 2007, Anna made a terribly short cameo as an ITU Nurse in ITV’s movie version of Frankenstein. DVD caps can now be found in our gallery.
Victoria Frankenstein is conducting ground breaking, but highly controversial work in the field of stem cell research and medical biotechnology. She is obsessed with her research, The Universal Xenograft Project (UX), generating a multi-organ bank to create organs which are fit for human transplant. Her obsession is not driven by a desire for fame or adulation, but to save her dying son William.
Maddened by grief and desperation Victoria steals a sample of William’s blood and introduces it to her research programme. Deep inside her lab, in the confines of a purpose built tank, the cells grow at an extraordinarily accelerated rate. As they diversify, mutate and re-form, a horrified Victoria realises that she has lost control of the experiment; the UX is alive – what has she created?
Starring multi-award winning actress Helen McCrory, James Purefoy and Lindsay Duncan.
Fringe Season 5 will premiere on September 28 and the episode will be titled “Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11”. This is a very Fringey title.
TVLine’s Matt’s Inside Line has some scoop about the new season
The cat’s out of the bag: As spoiled by John Noble to TVLine earlier this week, the fifth and final season will leap ahead to 2036, where Olivia – though absent from the “Letters of Transit” episode – will be on hand. And as Noble intimated, Anna Torv is champing at the bit to play the relationship between mother and (grown) daughter Etta. She just hopes the women have it easy! “We’ve seen Olivia work through so many relationships in her life, I would love her not to have to work through this one with Etta,” Torv told me last month. “I would love for us to meet her and Etta having already done all of that and just be family, and have that trust all there already, which is what we kind of got with Olivia’s sister [Rachel]. That was always so lovely, because it was the only time we saw Olivia settled.”
And this article from TV.com confirms that the new season will show more of the 2036 year we saw in Letters of Transit:
With Fringe fans still dealing with the very surprising exit of Jeff Pinker as executive producer, we have fresh intel on the upcoming final season of this Fox drama.
The September 28 premiere will be titled Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11, a tidbit revealed by showrunner J.H. Wyman yesterday when he Tweeted a photo of that script’s cover sheet.
Also on Twitter, meanwhile, star Joshua Jackson confirmed a major time jump ahead, something most fans presumed based on Peter and Walter having been trapped in amber for a couple decades.
“Do you think they’ll have peacoats in 2036?” the actor asked.
John Noble echoed this sentiment in a chat with TV Line, saying at this weekend’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards that “found footage” might be used to refer viewers back to the previous universe/time line.
“Walter, Olivia, Astrid and Peter are insurgents, so we know all the dirty tricks that have been played against us,” Noble teased of the 2036 world. “We’ll be learning from the past.”
Indeed, Olivia will be present in this return to the future, while Noble also said fans will once again see her and Peter’s adult daughter, Etta.
A great interview with Anna from TVLine.com, where she talks saying goodbye to red Olivia, new season and saying goodbye to the show.
“I… I can’t even… I don’t even want to think about it,” she says of bidding Agent Olivia Dunham’s alt self goodbye. Shaking her head in disbelief and with palpable affection for a fictional being coloring her voice, she shares, “I’m totally going to miss her! I can’t believe they let me have her for so long.”
The moment seemed only appropriate to tell the Aussie beauty that this reporter harbored a bit of a crush on that rascally redhead from the “red” ‘verse. “I do, too!” she confides. “She’s so cute, and easy, and fun…. Because [Alt] Lincoln was always the leader of that team, she was always able to be a little more loose. She didn’t have to carry the show.”
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
Torv makes no secret of her immense love for Season 3, which toggled between the “blue” (prime) and “red” (alternate) universes and dangled so, so much Emmy bait. “I’ve missed that back-and-forth,” she admits. Yet Season 4 — in which Peter’s presence in a timeline that heretofore didn’t acknowledge him eventually led Olivia to “remember” how things used to be — presented new notes for the actress to play.
“Any opportunity I get for Olivia to not be so dour all the time, I sort of relish,” Torv smiles. “When she gets her memories back, I didn’t want her to be troubled by it. I wanted her to be truly, ‘This is a great feeling and I don’t want to let this go!’ So that was one of my favorite little parts of the year.”
Speaking of small moments, I had to ask Torv about that look, the one exchanged between Fauxlivia and our Lincoln Lee as the bespectacled G-man revealed his decision to stay on the Other side as the bridge between the worlds closed down. Did the badass beauty actually blush?
I’ve added more pictures of Anna at the Fox Upfronts from this monday, thanks to Mariana!
