Sam Huntington Talks New Werewolves on Being Human
Anytime I come across news on the incredibly talented Sam Huntington I get all kinds of exited (I heart him). He’s definitely one of the best werewolf actors out there. In a recent interview he chatted about his character Josh in SyFy’s Being Human and on what’s to come in the show. In the interview he touched on the new werewolves coming to town, Josh and Nora’s relationship and much more. Have a look:
Can you talk a little bit about the new werewolves we’re going to see this season on Being Human and how they’re obviously different from Josh?
I can’t tell you exactly what they are. What I can say is they represent a real threat to Josh, and not so much physically, but more socially. Who they are is also a threat to the people that Josh loves. I don’t really want to give you more than that because, thinking about it now, it is kind of a reveal in the episode. So I feel like I would be doing the show a disservice by revealing what they are, but I promise you that they’re really bad ass and cool.
I’m anxious to see where Josh’s and Nora’s (Kristen Hager) relationship goes this season. Are you pleased with how they’ve been writing that relationship so far and what do you enjoy most about playing those scenes out with Kristen Hager?
Well, Kristen Hager is for all intensive purposes the fourth roommate, right? Especially this season, I think she is as much part of the show as any of us and she’s such a brilliant actress. So I feel like the luckiest guy on the planet. My scene partners, Sam, Meaghan and Kristen, are just so brilliant.
But yes, the cool thing is I have a deep connection with Kristen, and some of the scenes we’re in together are so heavy and relatable. They’re about real issues, including miscarriage and pregnancy, which are probably happening way too soon in this relationship. These are the types of things, though, that I think people can probably really relate to, and Kristen and I take that into everything we do.
She does such a beautiful job that it makes me have to work harder to keep up. As far as how they continue to write their relationship, man, it’s like a rollercoaster. It’s all over the place this season and, without revealing too much, it really has to do with the trauma that her being a werewolf causes to the relationship and how Nora reacts to that. The party scene (in episode three) where she breaks down is one of my favorite scenes I’ve ever been a part of. It’s just so crushing.
