Interview, Witches of East End  •  By  •  0 Comments

Daniel di Tomasso Online is a new fansite, so I’ll post old interviews and videos here.

Check it out the old interview for the Access Hollywood.

Access: You mentioned the connection with Freya. They obviously have a deep connection. Do you think it’s a classic love story? A pair of star-crossed lovers throughout time kind of thing?

Daniel: It’s that, multiplied by a million. There are connections and underpinnings in that relationship that go far, far beyond Killian’s understanding of what’s going on and Freya’s too and it’s kind of ironic if you think about it. Killian — his whole deal is just to avoid confrontation and avoid competition with his brother. … He lives in the moment and Freya’s the only thing that I think he’s ever been in pursuit of. She draws him back towards the circumstance that he left. He left that town. He left his mother and brother… and he finds himself right back where he doesn’t want to be. … There’s definitely a connection there that is stronger than him and stronger than her and they’re both trying to grapple with what that is.

Access: Well, their names sound better together. You saw the ‘Frillian’ thing right? Freya plus Killian equals ‘Frillian.’

Daniel: It’s really funny. I love that (laughs). ‘Frash’ almost sounds violent. ‘Frash’ would be Freya and Dash and ‘Frillian’ is Freya and Killian. There’s a nice ring to it.

Access: Don’t you think Dash is a better fit for Ingrid?

Daniel: Dash?… Dash is the perfect guy. He’s responsible, strong, intelligent, handsome, rich. He’s a golden boy. He is everybody your mother would want you to settle down with. Killian, on the other hand, is kind of this — he’s a fantasy production of the bad boy that I think every girl probably wants to fix, but they all have their time with the bad boy and usually, it doesn’t work out. It’s just a perfect triangle, but then you add the element of what is going — what’s the history behind this. … There’s that element of mystery, the supernatural element that I think just elevates the whole circumstance and makes it that much more powerful and engaging. I think that’s going to be very, very cool.

Access: You’re shooting in Vancouver. It’s getting cold up there, and you shoot a lot of outdoor scenes. How are you managing it?

Daniel: I’ve been living in LA for a couple of years now, so I’ve guess I’ve gotten a little softer, but I was born and raised in Montreal so Vancouver has got nothing on Montreal when it comes to weather. After this conversation I’ll probably end up going for a walk in maybe a light sweater.

Access: Or maybe jump in the cold ocean because you can just handle that?

Daniel: Well…. I’m not quite in the Polar Bear Club…

Access: Ha! So before I let you go, apparently the cast has become fast friends. Do you spend much time with each other outside of work?

Daniel: We do. That’s something that I’ve just been so excited about, that I’ve made friends.

Access: That doesn’t always happen!

Daniel: That’s what I’ve been told, so this has kind of been my first big, I guess, breakthrough, I suppose and it was so easy as far as getting along with everybody and everybody’s so supportive… of each other and it’s just a wonderful environment to play. It’s just perfect, really.

 

Just remember, guys: Season 2 is coming! Who is Team Frillian?
