At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, we got a chance to speak with the cast of The Magicians. In this interview, we sat down with Hale Appleman (Eliot Waugh) who spoke on a wide range of issues including the Eliot Monster and who he’d like to work with in Season 4.
After the jump, check out transcribed excerpts from the interview with Hale, as well as video of the full interview!
“John McNamara asked me, ‘yeah, can you play him as a 9 year old without any empathy or impulse control?’ and I said ‘sure’ and then they were like, ‘wait, uh, what’s happening here?!?'” – Hale Appleman
Season 3 of the amazing Syfy show, The Magicians, begins on January 10. Today, NBC Universal released the first still photos of the new season! Take a look below at 21 pics from the season premiere, including several shots of Faran Tahir as “The Great Cock.” Interestingly, there is no Penny in these shots.
To catch you up, Season 2 ended with Ember killing Umber, Quentin killing Ember, a Plumber turning off all of the magic (except for Julia, she’s still got magic), and Eliot and Margo arguing over how to rule magic-less Fillory. Also, the Fairies are knocking on their kingdom’s door. Season 3 picks up with the quest to bring magic back.
The Magicians stars Jason Ralph (as Quentin Coldwater), Stella Maeve (as Julia Wicker), Olivia Taylor Dudley (as Alice Quinn), Hale Appleman (as Eliot Waugh), Arjun Gupta (as William ‘Penny’ Adiyodi), Summer Bishil (as Margo Hanson), Rick Worthy (as Dean Fogg), Jade Tailor (as Kady Orloff-Diaz), Brittany Curran (as Fen), and Trevor Einhorn (as Josh Hoberman).
