Jen Ernst: Orphan Black at WonderCon 2015 Interviews Pt. 2
According to Orphan Black’s Evelyne Brochu Season 3 (premiering April 18 at 9:00pm on BBC America), if the show were a spiral, this season would be getting closer to the center, moving at a faster pace, and creating more danger for the characters. “When you are in danger,” Brochu says, “you rise up to the challenge.” This explains why Brochu and her fellow castmates Kristian Bruun (Donnie) and Dylan Bruce (Paul) showed so much excitement for the new season at WonderCon last weekend. Bruun went as far to call it “the most action-packed season so far.” There were promises of darker storylines and more raw emotional story telling. So, basically yea! I’m also intrigued by what Brochu calls a “heartbreaking season” for her character, Delphine. Heartbreaking in what way she wouldn’t say, so basically I’m already worrying about Cosima.
Of course, I expect to hear all kinds of buzzwords and hype from actors as they are doing PR for a project, but I believed them this time. With Paul’s involvement in a more militaristic world, there’s going to obviously be more violence and intensity. And while I’m okay with that —- a little bloodshed’s cool if it moves the plot along in painfully interesting way – I’m more excited about Bruun’s admission that we’ll be seeing deeper into Team Hendrix. Yes, I do totally relate to the most suburban of the clones, but my favorite part of Orphan Black is the comic relief — that’s where Donnie & Alison excel. Bruun teased that Issue 3 of the IDW comics will explore the couple’s early relationship in college and then in the show itself we’ll get a glimpse into what they were like as newlyweds.
The interview video has all the deets – and you get to look at Brochu’s amazing hair.
