Eve Myles Loves New York
Torchwood star Eve Myles expressed her love of New Yorkers last week at the New York ComicCon, thanking them for their hospitality which certainly seemed to impress both her and fellow panel member Euros Lyn.
“We’re completely overwhelmed by the support that we’ve had in New York,” she said. “It’s been extraordinary, to say the least. You’ve just been so energetic about the show, passionate and loyal, and we can’t thank you enough.
“I’m so coming back to New York!”
“Everything that you love about Torchwood you’re going to get double times over in this series. You’re going to see why they’re [so] close in this particular series. They really prove themselves to be rightful heroes.”
Euros Lyn spent some time outlining some aspects of the plot and feel of Torchwood: Children of Earth. With a tighter team – following the deaths of Owen Harper and Toshiko Sako – the remaining Torchwood members are plunged into a new threat while still grieving for their lost colleagues.
“We want to tell a story the way that we haven’t done before … We want to develop characters and their relationships to a deeper, more complex sphere. And we want to build up to something even grander and more epic. I can tell you, by the time you reach the end of the series you’re going to be holding onto the edge of your seats.”
“There’s definitely a lighter side to the characters [this season], because the theme is so dark that somewhere along the line you’ve got to get humor in there. Otherwise the dark stuff doesn’t work.”
Good to see too that Lyn has a unique take on the indestructible Captain Jack Harkness.
“An interesting thing about a character that can’t die is that death isn’t the worst thing that can happen to him.
“There’s a fate worse than death. And for Jack, there are some terrible sins from his past that we’re going to find out more about this time.”
Should be very interesting…
