TV Plus (South Africa) - - 19 FEBRUARY -

when actress emily rose took on the role of au­drey in haven (2010-cur­rent), she never imag­ined how much her char­ac­ter would change over the years. now, with au­drey’s evil twin com­ing into play in the first part of sea­son 5, emily’s fac­ing a new chal­lenge, but she ad­mits that she loves play­ing some­one com­pletely dif­fer­ent.

Tell us more about Mara, your char­ac­ter’s evil twin. well, the first episode is where we kind of meet this new evil per­son called mara. she’s a lot of fun to play. au­drey’s been in this dire melan­choly state, so to play some­one who’s more in con­trol and free is a plea­sure. but there are mo­ments where she made me re­ally un­com­fort­able and i didn’t like play­ing her. We’ve seen some time travel in re­cent sea­sons. Any era that you’d love to ex­plore in the show? i’ve al­ways wanted to do the 1800s, like a west­ern with pet­ti­coats and horses and in­tri­cate dresses. that’s been my dream. Can you tell us more about sea­son 5? it’s a lot big­ger. i think that it will be re­ally en­joy­able and ex­cit­ing for the au­di­ence. and when you throw a dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter into the mix, it makes ev­ery­thing that much more of a plea­sure to watch be­cause it’s un­pre­dictable. i’m ex­cited to see how the view­ers re­act to mara. Will we get to see Au­drey again? we haven’t seen the “real” au­drey since sea­son 3, so it’s about time. but i don’t know if au­drey is com­ing back. i re­ally hope that she does, be­cause i’d love to play her again. Lu­cas bryant (Nathan) is di­rect­ing an episode in sea­son 5. Will you try your hand at di­rect­ing? very much! i’ve al­ways en­joyed photography as well as sto­ry­telling through act­ing, so i def­i­nitely want to di­rect. i don’t know when i’ll get to do that in the fu­ture, but i’m work­ing on it.

emily rose gets top marks whether she’s au­drey in

haven or evil mara.
