“Sci-Fi starlet, Jody Thompson guest stars this season on Fox’s hit TV series, Fringe. Jody stars as Sara Downey, a casualty of an experiment gone horrifically wrong. I had the opportunity to sit down with Jody for an exclusive Geekadelphia interview and discuss in depth her special guest role on Fringe, past roles on Smallville and Stargate, what it’s like working with J.J. Abrams, growing up in Vancouver and more!”
• Hi Jody, thanks for taking time to speak with Geekadelphia! You are appearing on Fringe this season, can you tell us a little bit about your role on the series?
My character’s name is Sara Downey. She and her husband are the unfortunate casualties of a research experiment gone really, really wrong… I’m not sure how much more I can say without giving away anything!
Describe what’s it like working with JJ Abrams and Anna Torv on the set of Fringe. Was there mutual chemistry between you and fellow Canadian, Joshua Jackson? Were there any funny moments you would like to share while filming the series?
I have to say, I am continually impressed with big stars like Anna and Josh, as well as industry power players like Abrams, who manage to be enviably smart, cool and nice. When you walk onto a show for a single episode, there is always the possibility of feeling like an unwanted houseguest. The cast and crew are a tight-knit family and you are invading their private domain. But everyone was so welcoming. It was such a pleasure to be there. Anna is, (if it’s possible), even more beautiful in person and Josh is, well – even more charming. Alas, we didn’t do much joking around because the material we were working on was beyond serious…
