We got a chance to chat with “Being Human” star Sam Witwer who plays Aidan the vampire. Aidan has been super-dark this season, what, with the neck-breaking and blood-sucking, but we just can’t get enough of him! Witwer gives us a preview of the next episode, talks about his cast mates and what’s coming in Season 3.
Witwer tells us about how the season is going to end, in terms of the relationships between the roommates. “They’re going to come together and then they’ll fracture a lot more,” he says. In the next episode … it’s almost entirely me and Sally (Meaghan Rath) and Josh (Sam Huntington). You do see the fracture growing bigger. And one of the themes of the third season will be getting the band back together.”
Witwer says he still worries that people will think Aidan has gone too dark. “I still think people might feel like that. If they have a hostility towards Aidan, I mean, who can blame them? The guy is making some poor choices. He’s in a difficult situation. But the thing to remember about this guy is that he was a bastard most of his life. So it’s very easy for him to slip back into that behavior when all of the people around him are influencing him to be that way.”
He gave us a sneak peek at the upcoming episode, saying, “There is a big, ‘we have to save this family’ moment. It’s quite good. I’m very, very happy with it. Basically, if they don’t work together, everyone is going to die,” he laughs. “It was certainly a hell of a lot of fun to shoot because me and Sammy and Meaghan haven’t seen each other as much this season. We got to shoot together every day.” He says they’ve had great chemistry since the first screen test, when they were asked to tone down the chemistry. They’ve even gone to Hawaii on vacation together once shooting wrapped.
“Being Human” is back with a brand new episode on Monday, March 19 on Syfy. Check out a preview below.
