Take a sneak peek at the TVLine interview from 2012.
“After losing her powers, instead of using her forces for good, she decides to use her forces for even more evil,” Claire Coffee, who plays the former hexenbiest, says with a laugh. “She’s on a path of revenge.”
She previews that her character gets to work the moment she arrives in town. “She’s avenging her mother’s death a bit, but I think for Adalind, it’s more [about] the shame that the captain put her through after she lost her powers,” Coffee says.
Hence her partnership with Renard’s half-brother Eric, which re-establishes the purpose she lost after being jettisoned from the prince’s employ. Adalind’s mission is simple: Recover the key – which ultimately leads its owner to world domination – at any cost. (The joy she gets from ruining people’s lives is merely a bonus.)
“Nick, more or less, is just in her way. It’s necessary to get to him because he has the key, and she needs the key… in order to be the most powerful that she can with the royal family,” Coffee says.
