AX: Did you do any research into wolves to play a Blutbad?
DEE WALLACE: No. I know about wolves. I did do a movie called THE HOWLING, ya know! And I have had dogs that are part wolf.
AX: Who is playing your husband? How was it working with him?
WALLACE: Chris Mulkey plays my husband. I can’t believe we have never worked together before. It was a dream, like we had played these parts together for years. The entire cast is amazing and giving and incredibly talented.
AX: What are your sentiments toward your son’s Fuchsbau girlfriend Rosalee, played by Bree Turner?
WALLACE: I sooo love Bree! This girl has just got it. Sweet and present and subtle. Absolutely loved working with her. As the fiance and mom … well, we walk through a few challenges!
AX: How do you enjoy working with Silas Weir Mitchell, who plays your son?
WALLACE: Silas is intense and powerful and the utmost professional. He was so very kind to sign a picture for a healing client of mine who was struggling with some issues. Always there for the actors. A joy.
AX: Will you be recurring and do they have major plans for your character?
WALLACE: I have shot two [episodes]. There is talk of maybe another. Other than that, I am the last to know! It’s up to the fans, the network, and the producers.
