Anna Torv | Olivia Dunham

APPRECIATON THREAD



by I_Wish_I_Were_Kerry


BIO
Anna Torv was born April 15, 1978 in Melbourne, Australia. She graduated from Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) with a degree in Performing Arts in 2001. Since graduating Anna has performed on stage with the Bell Shakespeare Company.She soon landed her first role on television, cast as the character Irena Nedov on the Australian TV Series Young Lions. Her big break came when she was cast in the BBC series Mistresses, where she plays Alex for one season. It was her performance here that led her to being discovered by J.J. Abrams, creator of the Emmy Award-winning series Lost. Torv was cast as Olivia Dunham, the lead role in Abrams’ science fiction drama Fringe. Her character is that of a young but tough FBI agent who is forced to face the unexplained phenomena of her work with Dr. Walter Bishop, played by John Noble and his son Peter Bishop, played by Joshua Jackson.

It would be fantastic for the show to have Emmy buzz; first John and now Anna! Hopefully more greatness will come from Fringe and we'll have a few more seasons. Two more would be the ideal for me.


Warning: SPOILERS! I'm very excited to see all this, but really, will Olivia ever get a break?

Thanks for that Sofia! Normally I would watch sneak peeks but since the premiere is TODAY (gah I can't believe it) I'll just wait it out lol. But thanks for bringing it over! I can't believe we're going to have new Olivia tonight! All this hype, I can't wait to see!

NEW Anna Torv Interview / Season 3 - Radio Interview (starts at 35:30), Sept 23rd (KROQ)
K&B Recap Thursday September 23rd: Fringe’s Anna Torv KROQ FM – The World Famous KROQ

Anna Torv on her dual roles in ‘Fringe,’ from Olivia to Bolivia

Anna Torv has plenty of nicknames for her alternate-universe character on the Fox sci-fi series Fringe, among them “Alt-Olivia,” “Altlivia” and even “Bolivia.” Whatever you want to call her, Torv is having a blast with the role. She’s mastered the blond, buttoned-up, ready-for-action FBI agent Olivia Dunham over the course of Fringe’s two seasons, and her doppelganger — who’s also ready for action but a lot more brunette — presents a welcome new challenge for Torv. She hasn’t found a downside to it yet, “except it all gets kind of confusing keeping track,” the Australian actress says with a hearty laugh. The Fringe season finale in May had the two characters switch Earths, as Altlivia (my personal favorite of the nicknames) came back to our reality with Walter Bishop (John Noble) and son Peter (Joshua Jackson), and our Olivia was stuck in the other world and captured by alternate Walter, aka Walternate. The third season premieres tonight with an episode entitled “Olivia,” so you can expect Torv to have a significant role, whichever characters she’s playing. I talked with Torv while she had a break from filming the third episode of the season in Vancouver, so read below for what’s on tap for her, the many Olivias and a possible Olivia/Peter romance. (And if you missed it last week, click here for the Fringe producers’ thoughts on the new year.)

Have you had more scenes as Olivia or the alternate Olivia so far?
A couple. It’s them both, kind of, but not really. [Laughs] I still don’t have the kind of handle that I’d like to have on Altlivia, but what can you do, it’s Fringe.

What’s your favorite aspect of Altlivia so far?
It’s interesting now, because now Alt-Olivia is back on our side and our Olivia is on that side. I love our show. We do it long hours every day, all day, so it was really fun to shake it up a bit. I don’t think you get to do that much, especially not in television where all of a sudden you have a whole new kind of team and new stories, new costumes, new set. I don’t know, just to have that change has been off the wall and I’ve enjoyed every minute, actually.

Altlivia seems so different from Olivia — the hair, of course, but also her style, her fashion sense and everything else. Does that help you in differentiating her from Olivia in your head?
It did. And then they threw the curveball, which is that now they’re both in the opposite outfits. Then it’s actually going, “Oh God, who really is this person without the wig and without the clothes?” It could be one or the other. When this first came up [last season], Akiva Goldman had written the script and also was directing those two episodes. I was lucky enough to be able to just sit down and have quite a few chats about all of that. I would have loved to have made her a completely different character, but we had to keep coming back to the fact that they are extremely similar in that they ended up in the same line of work, the same kind of division, with the same partner even. They really are fundamentally, genetically really the same person. There’s just a front-footedness I think to Altlivia, simply because she just doesn’t carry the weight of the world on her shoulders like Olivia does. Olivia’s mum died when she was really little, and Bolivia’s mum is still around. There’s lots of little, subtle differences.

Altlivia will be a double agent of sorts over here. How will that play out?
Altivia is kind of cocky, so she thinks that if no one says anything, she’s doing a good job. I don’t know how good a job she is doing. [Laughs] She’s like, “Yeah, this is cool. OK. Bring it on. A new challenge and a new mission.”

Josh has said he’s not in favor of an Olivia-Peter romance. Where do you stand?
Especially with the way the last season ended, of course they’re supposed to get together! I don’t know when, but that’s been set up from the start. What the writers are really good at doing is constantly teasing that out. Everytime they take one step forward, all of a sudden there’s another massive obstacle in the way to prevent that. If all of a sudden you’ve got this relationship in the show, it becomes a completely different thing. You want to keep that little bit alive, right? Because that’s how it goes. At the end of the second season, Olivia says to Peter, “I’ve tried to think of all these reasons why you should come back, but at the end of the day, you have to because I think you belong with me.” That’s her declaration of love, and Peter accepts and says OK and comes back and comes back for her. And of course it’s not our Olivia who ends up coming back. Again, it’s not going to work. But I don’t mind if they get together. I think they would handle it in a way that wouldn’t override the show.

With Altlivia on our side, you can see the love triangle coming — although I guess it’s more of a 3D love triangle, with a weird alternate-universe hypotenuse.
[Laughs] I know! I think so, too. I don’t know what they’re going to do with that or how they’re going to resolve that.

Do you look forward to playing that kind of romance? It would be different than what we’ve seen so far in the show.
To tell you the truth, no, I don’t. I love the fight – and when I say the fight, I don’t necessarily mean the stunt fighting. I like playing the stuff with fight and with drive, when it’s connected to a bigger thing. I love the scenes when she’s on a mission, where she’s not reactive, she’s really proactive and she’s sorting it out and she’s getting it together.

In the first three episodes, are there any huge surprises or big shockers?
I think there is. The first episode back is great, and it’s not like a bombshell because it moves so quickly, but it sets the premise for what the— I was going to say themes. See, it’s so stupid. I never know what I can and what I can’t say, or how you tease something eloquently.

They need to give you crib notes for every episode.
Yeah! You become so inarticulate and you just sound like, “Um, well, it’s really fun but, um…” Anyway, the first episode does set the tone for where they’re going to go, with the alternate universe and back over here, and it’s a fantastic episode.

Do you love all the geek cred you now have?
What geek cred do we have?

You have a lot. A lot of people, like myself, feel that Fringe became a stronger show than Lost last year.
Whenever we’re doing any kind of thing where we actually get to interact with the audience, it’s a real mix of people, to tell you the truth. They must all go home and be secret geeks. I never feel like, “Oh my God, how do you answer a bunch of nerds who sit on their computer?” I’m just glad people like the show, really. So, yes is the short answer. [Laughs]

kdjsfhsdkjfghsdf THE PREMIERE <3 I LOVED IT. Loved every second of it. So ummm first off, Anna Torv SLAYED. SLAYED the entire episode. Ausiello and everyone was right, she TOTES deserves an Emmy nom just from the premiere. AMAZING. The first scene when she was just sitting in the room with the psychiatrist was just ... BLEW ME AWAY. I cannot even put into words. She killed this episode. For reals.

And OMG I totally DID NOT SEE COMING that Olivia would start to think she was the other one. I figured the treatments just wouldn't work on her because she's a cortexiphan kid or something, BUT OMG NO. NO NO NO. Olivia thinks she's her alternate self now. NOOOOOO. I'm sure she'll remember who she is again eventually, BUT GAH! I knew once Henry said that she had a good shot she was starting to think it over, you could see it in her face. But yeah I did not see that coming in the SL, good twist writers. I'm interested to see how she starts to remember again.

But SRSLY, the episode was amazinggggg. I can't wait for the rest of the season!

maybe.. just maybe.. she is pretending she thinks she is alt!livia
Thats my only hope

yeah I'm sure she will remember who she really is eventually,
if not, Walter will give her a drug that removes alt!livia memories from her head.. or something like that.

and OMG how awesome was the scene with her mom?

OMG I KNOW. I totally forgot to comment on that. AMAZING INDEED. I hope we see more of Olivia and her mom, powerful stuff man.

I was thinking MAYBE she is pretending to be Alt!Liv too. But IDK. If it was anyone else administering the drugs I'd say it's more than likely because Olivia is THAT SMART. But it's Walternate and he's a genius knows what will/will not and should/should not work, so I feel like she really IS starting to think she's her alternate self. I'm sure she'll remember who she REALLY is eventually. I guess it's just a matter of when and how.

we won't know until we know it

Olivia is THAT good But maybe they used the right drugs, we know her mind is "open" to receive other's memories, it happened before.
