Canning Times - - WHAT’S ON - Ju­lian Wright

LE­GENDS of To­mor­row ac­tor Matt Ryan starts film­ing the lat­est sea­son of the show in July, but is in the dark about the plot as much as view­ers are.

Ryan was in Van­cou­ver on a break from film­ing the show, in which he plays su­per­nat­u­ral de­tec­tive John Con­stan­tine, when he spoke with Com­mu­nity News ahead of his visit to Perth as part of Su­paNova from June 22 to 24.

But there is no point in try­ing to get some spoil­ers on sea­son 4.

“I have no idea about the script; that is the job for the writer,” he said.

“They are back to work now (but) I will have to wait and see (what hap­pens) as much as any­one. It has been great to play John over the arc.”

Ryan said he was keen to ex­plore Aus­tralia when he touches down.

“This will be my first time in Aus­tralia; I re­cently went to New Zea­land,” he said.

“I will go to Syd­ney and Perth and will have some time in-be­tween; I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to meet­ing the fans and look­ing around.”

The self-con­fessed sci-fi geek said he did not an­tic­i­pate be­ing caught up in the con­ven­tion cir­cuit when he ac­cepted the tit­u­lar role in the tele­vi­sion show Con­stan­tine in 2014.

“I am a huge sci-fi fan, I was al­ways a sci-fi geek,” he said.

“But be­fore I took this role I wasn’t aware that con­ven­tions would be part of it.

“I just looked at the role and wanted to play it and I was just happy they gave me a job.”
