Entertainment Weekly got the chance to chat with Bitsie Tulloch about Juliette’s unexpected hexenbiest transformation, her reason for not telling Nick, and upcoming showdown between Juliette and Adalind.
Take a sneak peek at the EW article.
Has it been fun to portray Hexenbiest-Juliette?
It’s been really, really fun. I was so excited when I first saw that’s where they were going to sort of take her character. … You know, what’s so fun about this new storyline is the question of, is she going to use this newfound power for good or for evil? And what kind of situations is she going to find herself in? She already killed the guy from the Tribunal with her powers, and she’s obviously incredibly badass with this thing. It’s pretty intense, and I don’t think anyone really knows how to help her. It won’t be something that’s easily solved.
I think I can probably say, without giving anything away, that basically the thing that all the fans have been waiting for, for four years, is a catfight between Adalind and Juliette. How great is that going to be when it’s Hexenbiest on Hexenbiest? That’ll happen, and that’ll be awesome. It’s definitely been a really fun storyline.
At first it was bittersweet: One of the reasons I always loved [Juliette] is because she was the only series regular who wasn’t a cop and wasn’t wesen. And so I always really liked playing Juliette because I was like, well this is how the audience would be looking at all this crazy stuff happening if they were just plopped into this world. But now obviously she is wesen. It’s just fun for me going through it.
What else can you tell us about a potential showdown between Juliette and Adalind?
That’s coming up sooner than later. The fans really seem to like the new Hexenbiest Juliette. I think they’re really, really, really going to love that showdown. Because we’ve really been waiting four seasons for a showdown. Adalind has been making Juliette’s life miserable since season one. She’s not just your gun-toting veterinarian who’s threatening but maybe not that threatening—now she’s über threatening and dangerous.
