Laura Vandervoort loves all things horror.
On Space’s hit series Bitten, Vandervoort plays the role of Elena Michaels, the world’s only female werewolf, opposite Greyston Holt’s Clayton Danvers, a fellow lycanthrope and Elena’s on-again-off-again boyfriend.

But when she’s not doing battle with the supernatural, the Toronto native watches everything from American Horror Story and The Walking Dead to classic Alfred Hitchcock movies.

Based on Canadian author Kelley Armstrong’s bestselling novel of the same name, Bitten is Space’s most successful original series as it’s amassed an average weekly audience of 347,000 viewers and has garnered a loyal following on social media.

Now, with the Canadian series almost done shooting its second season, The Star sat down for a chat with the show’s leading shapeshifters on the Leslieville set where Bitten is filming its second season, set to broadcast early in 2015.

Considering that season one left off with Elena finding the decapitated head of her fiancée, Philip, where do we find her and the rest of the pack at the beginning of season two?

LV: Season two picks up three days after last season’s finale and Elena is obviously dealing with losing Philip, but she’s pushing it down and suppressing it. She’s sort of gone into defense mode and is seeing red and is doing everything she can to get revenge. She’s bloodthirsty and stronger this year and doesn’t look back or regret anything that she does. She’s much darker.

GH: I think mentally, Clay’s come to terms with some of his more violent tendencies and that was mainly due to the fact that he wanted to change for Elena and become this new man for her. In season two, our relationship is back on track for the most part. Right off the bat we don’t even have time to deal with some deeper relationship issues because Elena needs vengeance for Philip’s death. Clay is just going along with her for the ride and supporting her with that.

Season one dealt solely with werewolves, but this season will see witches introduced. Was there any concern that the introduction of a new supernatural species would dilute the show’s werewolf-centric storyline?

GH: I know initially that the plan was to keep the show within the werewolf realm. You have to have new elements coming to the show all the time and I think that the addition of witches in season two allows us to go to so many more places. They deal in a world that’s not physical whereas the werewolves are purely physical, so it’s an interesting dynamic to see those worlds . . . collide.
LV: It’s also something that the pack has never dealt with before and it’s not something that we can really compete with. We don’t know how to handle magic, so we are sort of at a loss for the first time because we’re not the powerful ones.

In what ways does season two differ from season one?

GH: There’s something scary about violence in a physical way, but this season it’s dealt with on a more spiritual, more ghostly creepy way that’s outside of the realm of reality. It messes with your mind more. We’ve been saying that the first season was more of a thriller, whereas this season is more horror. It’s very dark.
Bitten has a large following on social media and a lot of TV shows have made a conscious effort to engage their audience in discussion while they watch. How do you think social media has affected the viewing experience?

LV: I have Twitter and Instagram and I’m a person who is on it constantly. Not just updating our fans about the show, but talking to them and seeing both positive and negative comments . . . and I think it’s great that people can connect and feel closer to us because they’re more intrigued with the show and feel like they have a tangible connection to it.

GH: It’s good and it’s bad. When the show came out, lots of people had very strong opinions of it because of the books mainly. So there were some negative comments and you have to push through those and not let them get to you, but as the season progressed people started to get used to the storylines and our characters.

Horror has become a dominant genre on the small screen in recent years. Why do you think it’s become so popular?

LV: I feel like we’re immune to (the blood and the guts now). We can see pretty much anything on TV and not blink, which I think is sad, but it’s also just the wave that everyone’s on. You know vampires and werewolves have their day now.

If you were in a horror movie and had to choose one iconic villain or monster to run away from, who would it be and why?
LV: Jack Nicholson’s Jack Torrance from The Shining because it’s one of my favourite movies. I think it was the first of its kind, it was beautifully shot and it’s a movie that when I first saw it, I couldn’t shut my eyes — I had to take in everything that was happening. When I was a child I loved Hocus Pocus, so I’d run away from Bette Midler’s Winifred and I’ve always wanted to be in a Hitchcock film, so the crows from The Birds as well.
GH: Jack Nicholson in The Shining. First of all, it would be great to work with him, but to be in that movie on that set up in the mountains in that remote area and running from him around that house and into the maze would be so creepy. Maybe Chucky (from Child’s Play), although now that I’m older I’d say “well, I’m just going to kick you.”

What’s the best way to impress a werewolf?

LV: I’d say a slab of meat, but that’s not Elena (laughs). I’d say enticing all four senses because they’re heightened. So maybe an amazing breakfast in bed with some Sinatra and some sort of Hitchcock movie on. That’s how you impress Elena/Laura.
GH: I think just a show of loyalty and integrity would be enough to impress Clay.

Sleepy Hollow - Episode 2.02 - The Kindred - Promotional Photos (1)_595_slogo

In attendance at the Sleepy Hollow NYCC panel were executive producers Len Wiseman and Mark Goffman, along with stars Orlando Jones (Capt. Frank Irving), Lyndie Greenwood (Jenny Mills) and Sakina Jaffrey as Sheriff Leena Reyes. Thanks to Screenrant.com for the following info from the panel:

-Season 2 will have 18 episodes – Wiseman says “More is tougher,” but they’re super excited.
-Goffman reveals that the the show runs uninterrupted through the end of the year before a big midseason finale; it returns Jan and Feb to finish the run. They’re excited for consistency.
-Jaffrey reveals that she worked hard to get the role – but she didn’t know her character would be seen as the party-pooper.
-Jones jokes that he can’t talk to Jaffrey (his replacement on the show) – in part because she threw his character in jail and made his mother unhappy that he was being depicted as a black guy in prison stereotype.
-The showrunners reveal that they wanted Jaffrey regardless thanks to her role on House of Cards.
-Len Wiseman teases the season 2 arc and the answers behind what turned Ichabod’s son Jeremy (John Nobel) into Moloch’s sin-eating henchman, Henry.
-Goffman and Wiseman inquire how many people saw the season 1 finale and were surprised (pretty much everybody). They promise the same effect for the season 2 finale.
-The moderator reveals that the footage for the panel will be the first half of the newest episode.
-Wiseman talks about how he and other writers all contribute to the creature design; Goffman says they have “creature meetings” every 3 weeks to decide on new creatures and how to adapt them. Lots of money and pre-planning involved – some VFX.
-Jones adds that a lot of the creatures are actually creepy on set (Moloch); Wiseman remarks on the irony that the people in them are so shy and normal when out of the costume or, like, at lunch.
-Jones fields a Q&A question about how the cast embrace these iconic figures and does it throw them to work with them. For Jones it can be a struggle; for Greenwood it’s fun.
-Jones wants to get Moloch pregnant.
-Greenwood reveals that the Abbie/Jenny relationship has gotten better – but the conflict is not done for good.
-The showrunners can’t say how a Supernatural/Sleepy Hollow would work. A fan suggested that Ichabod could watch a Supernatural-style series on TV.
-Jokes are running about Tom Mison’s singing ability; Nicole Beharie’s singing is well-documented.
-Jones shares how much love they get in the actual Sleepy Hollow town (events, gifts from citizens and cops – they even met a real police head who is an African-American woman). Abbie isn’t based on this actual woman, though.
-The cast each recount their favorite anachronistic Ichabod moments – what’s yours? Goffman goofs by talking about a deleted scene… that wasn’t actually deleted. His revelation? “I need to watch this show!”
-Wiseman talks about converting the pied-piper for this show, and how the show itself affords them great opportunity to pull in creatures and ideas the like – or those related to the thematic arc of the episode.
-Jaffrey may have dropped a SPOILER that Abbie and Jenny’s mom will be making an appearance!
Jones talks about getting to actually get off the sidelines and do battle in this episode – for the wrong side.
-We will see an episode where Ichabod learns about karaoke!
-We will also see an Ichabod Yoga scene!
-Things during Q&A get serious when one fans questions how the show depicts mental illness (often for laughs). Goffman says that in upcoming episodes they get more serious about the issue.

Ian Somerhalder dishes on this season of “The Vampire Diaries” and his character Damon. Somerhalder says, “Bonnie and I, my girl – Kat Graham [is] an extraordinary human being…Bonnie and Damon are reliving the same day…and they’re stuck in this place together and it’s really cute…they are such odd bedfellows.”
