And let's face it, every creative person loves challenges in that sense. We tried to put them in all these alternate realities and universes to see what it was like for them to be together. Richard would be in a completely new world or universe, and they would have spent the whole season trying to get back together. I'd asked (executive producer) Ken Biller early on in season two. When are you ever going to wear something like that.
If you could have written the last scene ever for Richard and Kahlan (Regan), how would you have ended their story? I wouldn't want to say something without really sitting down and thinking about this one. I never think about them getting together because I was always sad when Buffy and Angel got together. Then you would have them separated and could put them in new relationships. I said, "If we go to season three, I think it's time. Because I was always wearing the same thing, any kind of different costume was just fun, even if it's really heavy chainmail. I know that you love your music and play guitar, but do you also compose music? How interested would you be in recording an album and perhaps pursuing a music career as well as continuing to act?
Where were we going to be in season three, I didn't think Richard should know that. If I would have started off season three, I would have started it off with Richard suddenly away from the group, on his own, in another kind of land or universe. I can be a little bit anti-social sometimes when it comes to that. What was your favorite episode, and why that episode? How hard was it to learn all those moves and how long did it take? But, yeah, it was something I was really always looking forward to. (woodsman2b) She brought a bit of sassiness that the show kind of needed. And in general how happy were you when you'd seen the finished episodes? (TRastro) The crew had become like a second family.
The action should let him discover his own character, you know what I mean. Maybe we could have separated the characters a little more and then brought them back (together), or tried to get them back together over (the course of) season three. I've learned that Richard's pendant had an interesting history in the books. You've just be the focal point of attention all week and sometimes you just want to be by yourself and just chill out. Even from season one I said, "I can't wait to leave season one a boy and come back season two a man and start taking charge." I'd like to know your opinion about Tabrett's arrival on the show. The characters were more like Smurfs, so goody-goody all the time, and it was great to have someone come in with a bit more of their own agenda and who was not all about the people and the greater good, but was somehow sworn to serve to me. It was kind of crazy, but it was even worse for Bruce and Bridget because we were in New Zealand, where it was always windy. If there was an apocalypse and our crew had to start a new world, we'd have some good facilities there. We had these amazing horse riders, these amazing fighters. We had people who could build amazing houses and castles.
but I guess we needed out ratings on TV to be higher." The auburn beauty admits no one on the set would give her any answers as to why the show so suddenly came to a halt. "It was not going to be produced by ABC unless someone else would come along and produce the show. I still haven't even been released from my contract but I know it's coming soon." Despite the sadness that comes along with the end of the show Bridget says she's loved playing Kahlan!
"I knew as soon as I read the breakdown that I would get the part," says Bridget.
And would it have been different from the Terry Goodkind books? I think people would have liked that, to see both of them with someone else for a while, but then maybe eventually coming back to each other. I think I'm ready and I'd really love to do it." It was going to be talked about. What was it like wearing that in comparison to the normal costume? (deanna) Yeah, I've been doing that for about fifteen years now, even longer than acting.
(pktempleton) I think his ending is actually kind of cool. But, gee, it could be amped up a little bit, you know? It can't hurt to post several "cracky" questions..maybe it can. It probably would have been the first or the last one of the season, purely because I was so busy and as a director your need time to prep and to do post-(production). It's something that I'll now have a bit more time to really flesh out.
Or were they just going to leave it as something from his father? It was an interesting little relationship, and it turned out good. It took on a life of its own, but fan reaction was mixed. It was so impressive to be surrounded by all these people. I really got along with everybody in every department and I appreciate everything everyone did. And what's the one thing that you would have wanted to see happen in it?"It was doing really well in the second season," says Bridget."I thought our fan base was growing and especially how many countries were viewing the show … everyone was surprised by it." Bridget sadly recounted the day she heard the news. the main writer and we had a nice long talk about it and he was obviously very sad.(mo770) I really couldn't tell you where they were planning to head with the story. Bang, bang, bang, bang." You're thinking about your moves and how it looks. "Is that what I'll look like in a certain amount of time? If a fan recognized you in a public place, would you rather have them ignore you and pretend you weren't there, or would a polite nod or perhaps a "Hey, not to be too creepy, but I'm a huge fan and just wanted you to know that" be okay? How did that feel, finally being able to play the guy who runs everything? I think if there was one to change, we probably could have done that a little bit better, but we found our stride with six ("Elixir") and seven ("Identity"). I probably would have liked to have redone the last episode ("Tears"). I'm moving over to America pretty soon and will be off on my own. Being a freelance actor you're not really controlled by anyone.I didn't even think the writers sometimes from week to week. I'm a really big fan of "Denna." And the fighting; I can't even express how much I loved the fighting. We had such great people there and I feel like I can just into the next, I don't know, Highlander or something. It was a boyhood dream, always, just to be able to do these choreographed fight scenes on a TV show. It became second nature, like it was just part of the job. I tried to enjoy it as much as I could, but now that it's all over, I'm like, "Am I really not going to get to do that with all those stunties again? I think we'd all benefit from getting a pointer or two from you. (mse HU) It was really great and it was something that I had in mind since season one. I think we all would have liked to redo the last episode, because we didn't know it was ending, and it would have been nice to have tied up some things. You get to be kind of be your own boss until you work with a collaborative group of people on your next job, and really, with a collaborative group of people there's never really a boss anyway.(Necros) Ohhhhhh, I don't think they were going to. Some people didn't like how it was always falling across your eyes. If you were to have written an episode, what would it have been like? (nessaa) Wow, my episode would have been like "Denna" times 10. I would have loved to have split my episode over two parts and really not have relied too much on the fast-paced action we had on the show (during much of season two).
