LOCATION: On the Fringe
THE SKINNY: Speaking to reporters today, Anna Torv who plays F.B.I. Agent Olivia Dunham on the new science fiction series FRINGE, revealed some tidbits about what to expect from the new episodes that start airing next Tuesday on FOX.
On Olivia's past, Torv says:
We slowly start to discover some things that happened to her when she was very little that she doesn't remember. You start to see the story as everyone's lives start to interlace a little bit and how their paths have crossed before.
On finding more about the mysterious Observers, she says:
We're filming the final episode of the season and getting the a glimpse of what their function is.
On having a two month hiatus and viewers having to get back into the mythology, she adds:
If you're dropping in, you'll be able to get your head around it and where we're at. Hopefully people tune back in and finish the journey with us.
On Olivia's supposed "superpowers," Torv hints:
We do start to find out what was done to her when she was little. She may have some ability. We do delve into a little about that and whether it's a super power or if it's something that has been done to her.
On the writers and producers making sure the story doesn't get burdened by a complicated mythology:
I don't know how much of the storyline is plotted out, but they're adamant about it not getting convoluted. I think we're managing really well to straddle that procedural drama. If you miss an episode, you're not going to be lost.
