Link: Bitten’s Laura Vandervoort on the new man in Elena’s life

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Bitten’s Laura Vandervoort on the new man in Elena’s life
“Elena is still dealing with the premonition from the finale last season and what it truly means. She’s not sharing that with anybody at the moment, and keeping that secret causes some tension because Jeremy can tell that she’s acting strange and off. That’s the initial moment where tension begins between the two of them.” Continue reading.

From Amber Dowling of the Toronto Star:

Laura Vandervoort, Canada’s leading genre lady
As Bitten gears up for its third and final season beginning on Space Friday at 10 p.m., Vandervoort previews a bloody romp designed to give fans a proper finale that could be left open for future story if the social media #HowlForMore campaign bears fruit. On a personal note, the actress looks back on the role of Elena Michaels as “the best character I’ve had an opportunity to play and grow with,” and appreciates the strong fan support she’s received.

Bitten’s Laura Vandervoort says goodbye to the fans … for now

Laura Vandervoort refuses to concede this is the final goodbye for Elena Michaels and Bitten. Yes, Season 3—returning Friday—is the last run of 10 episodes on Space. But whether it’s because she senses an impending announcement on the horizon (perhaps playing a werewolf for three seasons has heightened her sense of smell) or is encouraged by the continuing wave of #howl4more on Twitter, the Toronto native refuses to throw in the towel.

“Anything can happen,” Vandervoort says over the phone. “We never want to say goodbye. I still want to leave the door open, because you never know.”

If this truly is the end, Bitten is going out on a high note. Right from the get-go with Episode 1, “Family, Of Sorts,” the werewolf pack is off and running with blood, action and one heck of a mind-eff by the storyline’s closing moments. New character Sasha Antonov (John Ralston) and his children Alexei (Alex Ozerov) and Katia (Sofia Banzhaf) have a lot to do with that, a trio of human and wolves who deliver an emotional curveball that leaves Elena stunned.

Equally stunning? Jeremy Danvers’ (Greg Bryk) plan to hunt down all mutts and present them with a choice: join his growing super-pack or be killed. That, Vandervoort explains, rubs everyone in her group the wrong way, especially Elena. The former Smallville and V actress—who will recur on CBS’ Supergirl—says this season is all about family both in front of and behind the cameras. The cast has never been stronger as a group, while their small-screen alter egos are struggling to remain united under Jeremy’s rule.

“Elena hates this new Jeremy,” she says. “She sees that he is becoming more like his father and, because of that, it causes tension between Elena and Clay [Greyston Holt] because Jeremy is very much Clay’s father and to go to Clay and complain about how Jeremy is handling the pack mentality causes trouble for everyone.”

This season represents a major departure from the book series created by Kelley Armstrong. Showrunner/executive producer Daegan Fryklind and her writing team have built a dramatic, visually stunning world for these humans, witches and werewolves to frolic in, a melding of what Armstrong conceived and what the actors bring to the table. Vandervoort teases fans may think they know what’s coming, but not this time around.

Yes, she refuses to say an all-out goodbye to Elena and Bitten, but Vandervoort does have a message for the loyal fans who have tuned in for the weekly adventures.

“Thank you so much for your loyalty and continued encouragement every season,” she says. “Thanks for staying in contact with us at conventions and set visits and on social media. We wouldn’t be able to do what we love without you guys watching, and you know the hard work that we put into it.”

Bitten airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET on Space.


Link: Bitten is back for Season 3

From James Bawden:

Bitten is back for Season 3
I keep hearing this will be the final block of 10 one episodes which surprises me as it has made Space vastly competitive –Space is number one among Canadian specialty channels–but Bitten must be one of the most expensive Canadian series in cable TV.

I’ve been told this decision was made at the beginning of production of the third season meaning a complete resolution will wind up this exciting series. Continue reading.

From Bill Harris of Postmedia Network:

Ex-Supergirl Laura Vandevoort on the end of ‘Bitten’ and rejoining ‘Supergirl’
“More than anything, it’s pretty amazing the number of fans we’ve amassed, either from the books, or people who have just started watching the show, and maybe read the books afterward. So it touches my heart that people are asking for the show to come back, and I know all of us in the cast and crew feel the same way.” Continue reading.
