Take sneak peek at the EW article.
Let’s talk about this hidden treasure. Can we expect to find out what it is soon, or will we have to wait until the end of the season?
We should expect to see it soon, but it will also be like, “What does it ultimately mean and how do we use it to defeat Black Claw?” All of those questions are going to have to be answered as we continue to go down the road. And that’s why it’s possible that this whole issue with Black Claw may continue into next season.
In honor of the 100th episode of Grimm, what’s your favorite episode from any of the seasons?
I can’t necessarily say I have a favorite episode per se, but I think I have a favorite sequence. My time came in the first season when I was sort of dealing with the trouble with Adalind and at the same time slowly finding out that Nick was a grimm. And that first experience of seeing Monroe woge in front of me. Those were some of my favorite experiences from working on Grimm for the past five seasons.
What about a favorite memory from the set?
It’s been the whole experience, and I like to say it’s what happens before action and after cut. It’s just us telling jokes. We sing, we laugh, we play practical pranks on each other. Even though the whole time on set is just fun, I’ve just enjoyed, reveled in the moment. It’s been a fun set overall. There’s some great people who have great energy and are very giving. Coming to work every day, honestly, is a joy. It’s like no experience I’ve ever had.
So who pulls the most practical jokes on set?
You know, David is very young at heart. He pulls a lot of pranks — not necessarily practical jokes. Just like hiding people’s food or little things like that. We all just poke fun at each other. We’re family now. Now we can talk about each other without insult. No one takes it personally and we just laugh at it.
