"IT'S COOL TO SEE HIM EVOLVE AND GET STRONGER..."

Fet was in­tro­duced as a lone wolf in a sea­son one. Now he’s prac­ti­cally got posse. Does that grate on him?

First off his re­spect for Se­trakian is mas­sive and he knows, and un­der­stands, he has a lot to learn from him. He knows in or­der to be­come the ul­ti­mate Strigoi ex­ter­mi­na­tor, he needs to sit back and learn from the pro­fes­sor. On the other side of things, there is a lot of ten­sion be­tween him and the rest of the group from time to time. But he’s a crea­ture of change and is adapt­ing pretty well. There might even be a ro­man­tic sto­ry­line in there.

He def­i­nitely has a con­nec­tion with Dutch ( Ruta Ged­mintas). Does she get his heart pump­ing?

He’s in­trigued by her on a whole spec­trum of lev­els. They both share a dark­ness and it’s one of those things where they have an in­nate draw to each other. It’s in­ter­est­ing to ex­plore that this year. It’s nice to see some­one draw light out of him.

How does Fet deal with the amped up threats of the Master and the vam­pires over­tak­ing the city?

He is do­ing ev­ery­thing he

can to learn and at­tack. He has his own ideas

on how he is go­ing to se­cure his city,

bit by bit. Not ev­ery­body agrees with

what he wants to do but he starts to do it and

finds suc­cess. It’s cool to see him evolve and

get stronger.

Fet is fea­tured in the books. Will we see much of that arc this sea­son?

In the books, he wrote a lot of jour­nals about what he was ex­pe­ri­enc­ing, not only about how to kill the vam­pires, but a lot of the time he spent time writ­ing about how he felt so alive in this apoc­a­lyp­tic set­ting. It’s cool how the writ­ers in­cor­po­rate it this sea­son.
