I Would Walk 5000 Myles…
Torchwood: Miracle Day star Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper) has told Collider about the moments she found out
she’d be getting a free trip to the states the series would be filming in America.
Upon learning the news that Starz would be performing an Eliza Doolittle – taking in our tatty, unkempt English show, showing it some manners and then letting it blow stuff up with welling paternal pride – she was near silent for two hours:
“I had my little baby looking at me and I had my dog and my partner, and he was like, ‘Well?!’ And I said, ‘I’m going to go do some washing up. I’m going to wash up some dishes, I’m going to take a shower and I’m going to have to have a think about things. It’s just too much to actually vocalize.’ So, I came down after about two hours and I literally hopped around with excitement for about 40 minutes.”
Like Gwen herself Eve’s loyalty to Torchwood is unbroken despite having to move her burgeoning family stateside for the shoot:
“It’s fantastic. The people have been so welcoming and kind, and Starz has been incredible. We all are having a ball. I love it here. I can’t tell you how pleased I am to be here and to be representing such an awesome production. What a treat everybody has doing it. It’s going to be great. It’s strange because this will be the fourth [season] of the show that I’ve been involved in, but it feels like the first because we are here, we’ve got a fantastic, brand-new cast, and we’ve got a new story to tell again. It just keeps re-inventing itself.”
