Fight­ing Fet

Kevin Du­rand on peel­ing the onion that is Vasiliy Fet...

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -

Is Fet still work­ing well with oth­ers or is he ready to go it alone this sea­son?

He’s got very strong ideas about how to solve this gi­ant, wormy prob­lem. He teams up with some new folk and still works with some of the old folk. Like al­ways, he looks up to Se­trakian and al­ways lis­tens to what he has to say, and is right by his side, but he’s also chas­ing down these new ideas.

It’s been three sea­sons but the time frame of the nar­ra­tive is barely a month. How do you keep Fet true to who he is, yet al­low him to grow?

It’s funny. At the start of the sea­son, I reg­is­tered it’s only been 23 days but it’s not like we’re hang­ing out in Mal­ibu. We’re all pretty sure we’re go­ing to die at any sec­ond be­cause the stakes are so high. You’re forced to evolve quickly or die. But that be­ing said, it is a short pe­riod of time and how much you can evolve, we ex­plore that.

Do we get more about Fet’s back­ground?

Grate­fully, the writ­ers re­ally sunk their claws into Fet and peeled the onion. As an ac­tor, I’m so grate­ful we get to look in­side more and see what he’s made up of. He had some re­ally hor­ri­ble sit­u­a­tions that let us see how he comes through on the other end of them.

Fet’s a fighter and the en­emy is get­ting nas­tier. Will any­thing break his con­fi­dence?

It gets pretty gnarly this year. These strigoi are get­ting smarter, faster and stronger. The hi­er­ar­chy of how they evolve is scary. It re­ally doesn’t look good for anyone walk­ing around with ac­tual hu­man or­gans func­tion­ing in­side.
