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