Lost Girl - Kris Holden Reid on his issues with season 2 Dyson




“No, it hasn’t been a fun season to be Dyson,” Holden-Ried admitted. “I’m looking forward to season three.

“I’ll be glad to be done with this. Not to be able to feel love sucks.”

“The thing about season two is, it was supposed to be 13 episodes, and then it got extended to 22,” said Holden-Ried, explaining his good news/bad news predicament.

“(The producers) couldn’t figure out a way to (wrap up Dyson’s no-love story arc in the middle of the season) without it being climactic. So something that was supposed to be sort of short-lived became an entire season-long arc of basically Dyson being a self-tortured, miserable jerk.

“They did definitely take a lot of bullets from my gun (as an actor). How do you play the absence of something? How do you play not being able to feel something?”

With Dyson being a main character in Lost Girl, viewers still had to be engaged and interested in his manoeuvres.

“We didn’t want Dyson to become an apathetic character, because an apathetic character is very uninteresting,” Holden-Ried said. “So we made it that he can feel everything else except for love, and he also can feel the absence of love. So Dyson reacts to that with anger, frustration, self-destructive behaviour.

“There were thoughts about making the role even darker, but then everyone got kind of scared about, ‘Well, what kind of show are we doing? Can we afford to have a character who’s that dark?’ So we kind of got caught in the middle with Dyson, with sort of an adolescent version of someone going through a real heartache. Because we still have to find those moments of levity, and how do we do that?

“I don’t know if it’s going to pay off in the end, to be honest. I’m thankful that as of now, people still are watching me and going, ‘Oh, poor Dyson.’ I get a little nastier (in the next couple of episodes), so I might burn some bridges with some audience members.”Via jam.canoe

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
