Hal-Con 2012 Q&A with Richard Donat & John Dunsworth from Haven
What an absolute dream come true to get to attend the panel discussion on Haven! One of our favourite shows to discuss on Hexed. In fact, we have been discussing it since it started and Shannon and I both fell in love with it. Wish you could have been there Shannon!
John Dunsworth & Richard Donat
John and Richard were an absolute delight and I was surprised to hear that this year's Hal-Con was their first convention ever.
They were remarkably similar to their characters Dave and Vince Teagues, even when it comes to the quarrelling. Apparently Richard will share lots of garlic with the cast and never gives any to John. Those are John's words!
You will absolutely have to watch the video to get a true feel for the Q&A, particularly the discussion on the Halloween episode and the haunted house they shot in. That was my favourite part. Lucky us we got a sneak preview of the Halloween episode which we got to watch with Richard and John.
I was happy to hear that there is very limited drama on the set and well, if there is... According to Dave, who shared with us in a spooky slightly sinister voice, those characters might "end up dead." Love it, so Haven-style!
Also check out the video because Emily Rose who plays Audrey and Lucas Bryant who plays Nathan show up to say hi to all of us. So thoughtful and fantastic, it was very exciting.
It was an absolute highlight of the convention for me. I even got up and asked them a question about paranormal activity on the set and discovered that the area they shoot in actually has supernatural properties. Watch the video to find out more!
Seriously, does it get better than this?!
