After an American Idol-mandated hiatus this winter, Fringe returns with six new episodes in a row. TVGuide.com talked to star Anna Torv about how the bald kid in “Inner Child” (9 pm/ET, Fox) fits into the Observer mystery, Agent Olivia Dunham’s superpowers, and whether she’ll get a new love interest any time soon.
TVGuide.com: Recently we’ve seen a softer side of Olivia — in her scenes with children. Is it difficult, as the old saying goes, to work with kids?
Anna Torv: Particularly with Spencer [List, who plays the “mini-Observer”], he was just a dream to work with. I hate it when people talk down to children, and I just loved him actually. I think we got on really well, and it shows in that episode.
TVGuide.com: Who or what are the Observers? What’s their function?
Torv: I honestly don’t know. We’re currently shooting the finale, and we’re just starting to get a glimpse into their function.
TVGuide.com: Tell us about Olivia’s powers then.
Torv: We find out what was done to her when she was little, and that she maybe has some special ability.
Want to know why Aussie girls look so amazing? Fringe star Anna Torv knows the secret: low-maintenance beauty

You’ve gotta love a straight-shooting Aussie chick. Take the latest wonder from Down Under, Anna Torv. Newfound stardom in the U.S.–she plays FBI agent Olivia Dunham on the Fox sci-fi series Fringe–hasn’t turned the actress into the kind of Master Cleansing, rabbit-food-nibbling, body-obsessed waif that’s become all too common on the small screen. In fact, she says, “To be really honest, I don’t love the gym.”
But that’s OK, because the 30-year-old actress is getting quite a workout on her new show, “running about” the set with costar Joshua Jackson as they chase down clues to government conspiracies. “There’s a lot of manhandling of bad guys, which is great fun,” she says. “I love being physical, but I don’t have any desire to prove myself. My character uses her feminine wiles, too. I’m interested in keeping that side of it real.”

‘Fringe’ stars Anna Torv, Mark Valley got hitched over holidays
Word from a Dish Rag on-set source is that Anna Torv, the gorgeous blond star of JJ Abrams’ new show, “Fringe,” married her co-star Mark Valley quietly over the holidays.
He played her co-worker/lover but he died early on (he got like plasticized or something bizarre) but then she went through this strange mind-meld hookup/hallucination thing and he might have been working against their agency but well, it’s complicated and I’m still a little confused.
Whew. It’s like “Lost.” But without the time travel. So far.
Mark is reportedly leaving the show (darn it!) so the couple told everyone -– cast and crew -– on an early January Friday night.
Thanks Annika for the heads up!
