HAVEN Calling… The Post Wrap Media Chat

WATCH the video above for just one example of some of the 'summertime fun' the HAVEN stars discuss below.

Posted: September 6, 2012

Two things you should know going into this – firstly, I love HAVEN.

HAVEN stars l - r Eric Balfour, Emily Rose & Lucas BryantOf course, if you've ever been on this site before that part is nothing new. I love the characters, the troubles, the developing plot lines, the dramatic moments, the funny zingers, the scenery, the impending romance – you name it, plus it shoots here in SABS hometown so there's that and that's awesome.

The second thing you should know is that in all my years of broadcast (going on 13 years now), throughout all of my interviews be it for TV, radio, internet, phoner, etc. etc. I have never been on a 'multi-outlet' call. That might not even be the right term for it, but essentially it's a conference call with the cast in which the journalists are in a 'listen only' mode until such time as they are called upon by the moderator to ask their question(s).

Eric Balfour's -last day of filming...  tweet

To set the scene for you - as I posted earlier - today marked the last day of filming for Season 3 of HAVEN and the shows stars Emily Rose (Audrey), Eric Balfour (Duke) and Lucas Bryant (Nathan) were gathered to answer our questions. Well...answer as best they could, given that they're sworn to secrecy as to how the third season unfolds (and my goodness does it 'unfold').

It was relaxed and insightful, it was fun and very funny and, truth be told, I was glad of the 'listen only' deal because I laughed out loud a lot. They were hilarious. Yes, all in all the call for me was a great way to spend an hour PLUS I got to chime in with my “Q” which they answered most graciously.

What follows is the transcript from my portion of the call (minus the part at the end where I completely geeked out). Again I will reiterate my gladness with the “listen only” feature - and yet I was certain I could hear the real journalists on the call smirking out loud at what could only be described as unbridled gushing on my part.  Ah well - Life's short – I love the show and there ya have it. So here's how it went...

Moderator – the next call is from Stephanie Beaumont of Sea and be Scene

SABS: Hi you guys, I'm...

..


Emily Rose: Hey you're just down the street

.

.

SABS: I was just going to say that and I'm actually probably the only person on this line that's sad today – because you're leaving us and here we kinda think of you as part time Nova Scotians. I hope that's okay after 3 seasons?!

Emily Rose: No - we appreciate that – that's an honour!

.

.

SABS: And here..

.

.

Lucas Bryant: Sing us a song!*
*(in my last HAVEN post I mentioned the wedding at which I sat with the 3 stars – well, what I didn't tell you was that I sang the song for the first dance – and thus this remark)

SABS: Maybe later 'cause no one wants to hear me sing, but here's what I want to know – because I know you've got lives elsewhere and projects on the go...what's the one thing each of you are going to miss the most about being away from your spring/summer home here in Nova Scotia?

Eric Balfour: Emily just whispered in my ear – said she would answer for me – she said Nicki's in Chester - which is probably true. I will miss Nicki's the most because I love Nicki...

But I think that actually speaks to a great truth which is – the people that we work with and live with here, and the community that we've made.  You know this summer has been the most fun we've had in the three years we've been here. Part of that was because of the weather – we were blessed with amazing weather this year and we all had fun this year. I can't think of a weekend this season where we weren't out either at the beach – teaching Emily how to surf or looking for waves on our friend Walter's boat - on some island....one day me and Lucas went or going tidal bore rafting or mud sliding or...

Emily Rose: ....going to people's weddings

.

.

SABS: yeah (I laugh nervously)

.

.

Eric Balfour: ...or seeing people sing at people's weddings

.

.

SABS: ah come on...

.

.

Emily Rose: We knew more people and so that created more opportunities to see Nova Scotia and really feel like a part of the family.

.

Eric Balfour: Yeah – it was a great summer – I don't know if I could pinpoint one thing, but like the night that we went – Emily and Lucas and one of our camera guys Stretch – they practiced a bunch of songs together – some they had written – some that were covers and they performed at this little bar across the river. It was just a really fun summer - so it's really gonna be hard in some ways to go home this time – Because it was a really phenomenal summer this time.

Emily Rose: It's like summer camp for us – it really was.  I mean we work really hard, but it is – I mean we come out here and we have a whole summer of planned activities when it goes well – and we're working together to create this big project and when we're able to pull it off and it turns out well and then on the side we have all these fun activities and routines that we create – it's a blessing. And it could be far worse and it isn't – it's great and we're grateful...

.

I was grateful to have this one last time to talk with the talented trio before they headed out of town. And I'm glad have an awesome season of the series to keep me company this fall and winter - until the HAVEN cast and crew return for Season 4. SABS

  3. Sorry that "Haven" is done and now thanks to the cuts to the Nova Scotia Tax Credit I don't see any other wonderful shows coming in to replace it - job wise.
