Link: Wynonna Earp’s Tim Rozon says Doc is out for himself

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Wynonna Earp’s Tim Rozon says Doc is out for himself
“I honestly can’t tell you exactly what Wynonna thinks about Doc. Just because he said who he is doesn’t mean anybody believes it, or that all the sudden he’s trusted by anybody. At the same time, there are demons and she’s the heir to the curse to put down revenants, so there’s these things that aren’t normal, and she is more susceptible to believe what he’s saying.” Continue reading. 


Tim Rozon on his hairy Wynonna Earp role

To say Tim Rozon is a fan of comic books would be a grave understatement. Rozon, who portrays Doc Holliday on CHCH’s Monday night sci-fi romp Wynonna Earp, blew his daily per diem on comics while attending WonderCon to promote the show for Syfy. He geeked out meeting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman and DC’s Jim Lee and spent all his free time walking the convention floor. So to land a role on a series based on Beau Hill’s graphic novels was, literally, a dream come true.

We spoke to Rozon about the research he did before playing Doc, the character’s complicated relationship with Wynonna, dealing with a devilish dude like Bobo Del Rey and why growing a real moustache was so important.

I’m a history buff, so going into Wynonna Earp I assumed Doc and Wynonna would be friends because of his connection to Wyatt. That doesn’t appear to be the in the show; if anything he appears to be aligned with Bobo.
Tim Rozon: People ask if Doc is good or bad and my answer to that is, what’s good and what’s bad? I’ve played villains and I don’t play them thinking I’m bad. I think what I’m doing is good. Doc lives in a grey area of good and bad and I think everyone on this show is driven by their own mission. Everybody feels they have something they need to get done for themselves and Doc is hell-bent on something. He’s going to use whoever and whatever he can to get that mission done. If he’s using Bobo or Wynonna, it really doesn’t matter to Doc.

Do things change? You’ll have to wait and see.

I love the fact that, at this point, Wynonna and Waverly just think he’s a super-fan with a great wardrobe.
Yeah! I mean, the writing is great. The funniest thing for me about the character is he’s not scared of a gunfight, but a selfie? He has no idea what that is. Getting in an elevator is what’s going to give Doc pause now.


Talk about growing the moustache and your research into Doc Holliday.
Here’s the thing. Doc Holliday is an iconic character and I grew up loving him. He’s been done really well by a lot of other people before. If I say, ‘I’m your Huckleberry,’ people know who that is. For those that don’t, it’s Val Kilmer as Holliday in Tombstone. I knew exactly who Doc Holliday was when this part came up and it was important for me to be as historically accurate as possible. So I went back and did a little research and the original moustache was big and had that little soul patch thing. I knew I was going to at least go with the moustache. It took about four months to grow that and I need it to play him. There is something about being on set with the hat, the gun and the moustache that really helps that character come out. It’s hard for me to do it right now. I’m so far away from Doc in regular life.

We also made sure that I had the right gun. In my research, I knew that it was a Colt Thunderer that we needed. And when I talked to production they told me that’s what they’d got, so I was really happy. I was carrying around a replica of the same gun he had.

Wow, did you take it? Do you have it?
I wish! I said, ‘Can I have this and hang it on my wall?’ They said, ‘No Tim, it’s a gun. You need a permit.’

Wynonna Earp airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on CHCH.


Link: ‘Wynonna Earp’ star Tim Rozon resurrects Doc Holliday

From A.R. Wilson of Digital Journal:

‘Wynonna Earp’ star Tim Rozon resurrects Doc Holliday
“These last three years have been the years of facial hair,” Tim Rozon laughs. Not only does the Montreal actor rock a full beard on the hit CBC comedy Schitt’s Creek, now airing its second season on Pop TV in the U.S., he grew an epic moustache for his role as legendary gunslinger Doc Holliday on the new supernatural western Wynonna Earp, which airs Fridays at 10 p.m. on Syfy in the U.S. and Mondays at 9 p.m. on CHCH in Canada.

Melanie Scrofano gets fired up for Wynonna Earp

Melanie Scrofano attended a convention once before, but nothing was like her experience this past weekend at WonderCon. The Canadian actress, who has appeared in The Listener, Being Erica, Degrassi: TNG and Pure Pwnage, was blown away by Wynonna Earp‘s passionate fans, especially because the series—based on the comic books created by Beau Smith—hasn’t debuted yet.

“A lot of them are fans of Beau, who is like a god, a lot are fans of [showrunner] Emily [Andras] because of Lost Girl and a lot of them have seen the trailers and are into what they’re seeing,” Scrofano says. Bowing Monday, April 4, on CHCH (Earp debuts Friday, April 1, on Syfy) the project revolves around the great-granddaughter of Wyatt Earp, Wynonna (Scrofano), a smart-talking young woman who returns to the burg of Purgatory, Alberta, on her 27th birthday. There she not only runs into typical small-town attitudes, but learns the family curse she thought was a myth is real: the folks Wyatt has killed are returning to Earth as demons. Armed with great-great-grandad’s gun and impressive fighting skills, Wynonna does battle against those who would prefer to see her dead. But where Wynonna is fast on her feet and great with a gun, Scrofano is, well, not.

“Apparently, I have heavy hands,” she explains. “I’m not very good at not punching people. There is a way to fight on TV so that you stop short. I go right through. The only thing about me doing my own stunts is that someone else is going to get hurt. I did punch my stunt coordinator right in the face. He didn’t love that.” (Stunt performer Holly Raczynski tackled the more physical demands.)

When she’s not returning demons to their rightful place, Wynonna is rebuilding her relationship with sister Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley), and establishing one with Agent Xavier Dolls (Shamier Anderson), who has come to Purgatory to recruit Wynonna for a secret government task force that takes down supernatural baddies. Scrofano says Wynonna and Dolls bond over what they get into over the next 13 episodes, and viewers learn Dolls has a vested interest in making the bad guys go away. Will there be love between Wynonna and Dolls? No comment, says Scrofano.

There certainly appears to be no love lost between Wynonna and her great-great-grandfather’s best friend. Doc Holliday (Tim Rozon) appears in Season 1, but seems to have aligned himself with head demon Bobo Del Rey (Michael Eklund) rather than acquaint himself—and side with—Wynonna.

“I can say that, just like all of us, Doc is neither 100 per cent good nor 100 per cent evil,” Scrofano says carefully. “We’re all just shades of grey and trying to find our way. Doc’s past is really, really complicated. He’s 133 years old and has had some issues. No matter what way he goes, you can’t help but love him.”

Wynonna Earp debuts Monday, April 4, at 9 p.m. ET on CHCH.


Video: Wynonna Earp teaser trailer revealed

Canadian Wynonna Earp fans already had a debut date to get excited about. Now we’ve got a teaser trailer to salivate over. The live action take on Beau Smith’s comic drops Monday, March 28, on CHCH and U.S. broadcaster Syfy just got our hearts pumping with a peek at what the series will look like. In a word? Gorgeous. And there’s plenty of snark thanks to executive producer and showrunner Emily Andras (Lost Girl).

Smith’s comic recounts the adventures of Wynonna Earp—Wyatt Earp’s granddaughter—as she takes down demons and other supernatural baddies. In the 13-episode series Melanie Scrofano takes on the lead role; among Wynona’s posse are Doc Holiday (Tim Rozon), Agent Dolls (Shamier Anderson) and Wynona’s sister, Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley).

“Some kids inherit money,” the trailer begins. “Others get talent. Me?  I got a demon-killing gun.” Check it out below.
