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 Jason Ralph (Quentin Coldwater) who spoke on a wide range of issues including who Bri-Guy is, Quentin and Eliot’s relationship and bond, and the responsibility of playing on a show that handles such serious issues and how that resonates with its fans.
After the jump, check out transcribed excerpts from the interview with Jason, as well as video of the full interview!
On Quentin and Eliot’s relationship:
“As much as you can believe in soulmates, I think they probably are.”
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).
