EW talked to actor Joshua Jackson who portrays the role of Peter on the FOX drama, Fringe. Here’s what we grabbed from the recent interview detailing the actor’s most challenging episode yet, a major disaster we’re about to experience later this season and for fun, the interview also teased about apples in the year 2036. Enjoy the dish right here!
- Episode 4 is a game changer for Peter. After asked what Peter’s greatest challenge in the new world is, Joshua Jackson smiled and teased: “Ask me again after episode four.” “There’s pretty major revelations through this three-act play that we’re doing, but for [Peter] there’s a pretty major shift that comes after 4,” he says.
- Jackson, ever the tease master, adds this about the menacing nature of the world they live in: “We have a scene — with a character who I will not name, doing a thing I can’t tell you about — where [a dangerous] scenario plays out. It’s just a small, quotidian thing. [But] one break from the routine leads to disaster. I mean, really f–king major disaster. And if that sense of dread permeates the show this year, I think that’s really good.”
- Lastly, Jackson can’t wait for super-fans to check out one specific moment that happens in the first batch of new episodes.”This is one of those things you don’t want to tease it too much, because maybe everyone will be like, ‘Eh.’ The thing that we reveal in the episode that we’re shooting right now is — if you’re geeked out on the mythology of the show, it is going to be one of those knock-your-socks-off moments.”
- Did you think egg sticks were clever? Wait till you see what apples look like in 2036.
