Zap2it talks to Dewan Tatum about Freya’s future in this interview.
Zap2it: What can you tease about ‘Witches of East End’ Season 2?
Jenna Dewan Tatum: I think this season in particular is much more complicated. There’s a lot of challenges that all of us as characters are going to encounter and go through. And we’re going a bit darker, a bit scarier and a little deeper with everything.
I’ve got more than one — lots of challenges coming up — most of them involving that I came to the realization of who my true love is. Finding him and locating him and all of that times ten happens this season. Amongst other things, there’s also supernatural challenges and evil spirits we get to encounter and lots of really fun things to do.
How is Freya’s love life going in Season 2?
She’s heartbroken. She starts off the season very confused, very heartbroken. She figured it out in the last hour — which was too late — and then ran to the love of her life, who is gone. He’s already been gone, he’s sailed off. So I don’t know where he is, I’m trying to find him. I’m heartbroken that he’s not returning any of my calls. It’s definitely Freya figuring out how to find the true love, find her love.
How are things between Freya and Dash?
As you can imagine, I’m not his favorite person in the world at this moment. So I’m sure there will be lots of interesting dynamics and challenges between the two of us now that he has learned that he has powers. He’s going to be getting better at his powers. And I’ve also left him for his brother so there’s a lot of reasons why Dash is not very friendly with me this season. Which is kind of sad ’cause I love working with Eric and we have so much fun. We were a little sad at the end of, as we call it, Frash: Freya and Dash together.
What can you say about the new character of Frederick?
I particularly have a very strong connection with Frederick, a very good strong connection. We are related obviously and there is a definite instantaneous connection in which we work well together. He begins to help me and he is a bit of an enigma though. He seems so perfect and seems so great but then there’s another side to him that every now and then flashes out and we think, ‘Wait a minute, is he who he says he is?’ And Christian [Cooke] is such a great actor that he really can embody that and play that.
You’re not quite sure if he’s a good guy or if he’s playing a good guy. I don’t even know — they don’t tell the actors anything. So every script I get I’m like, ‘No, he’s good. Is he? He’s good.’ But he’s wonderful and the Freya-and-Frederick connection is one of the more fun elements of this season I get to play.
“Witches of East End” Season 2 premieres Sunday, July 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
