The Canadian series Lost Girl is one of the favorite shows of the dvdtoponline-editors. At Comic-Con in San Diego we could now talk Ksenia Solo, Kristen Holden-Ried and producer Jay Firestone and elicit some information about the charming mystery series.
Of course there were the actors of the Canadian series "Lost Girl" represented at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego and were fans and journalists to answer questions. And they took the opportunity to not reveal details about the upcoming third season to talk about the parallels to "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and discuss how to deal with sexuality in the series.
Even the series junkie Adam Arndt was there and some of the questions listed below to set Ksenia Solo (Kenzi), Kristen Holden-Ried (Dyson) and producer Jay Firestone - and made quite a stir at the end.
The main sections of the interviews we have summarized standard themes and translated. The full interview can be found on the last page of this article as a video.
Adam: Lost Girl has reached cult status. When we presented the show on our website, we have compared them to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer '. How do you feel about this comparison? We had in our community, a heated debate about whether it is true or not really.
Jay Firestone: I'll be honest, at the beginning of the series I've read the first chapter of the Buffy manual. And as I sat down with the writers - in the original concept, in the very first design was the series very, very hard, erotic, sexy, rude. There was not much funny and so much fun, as we have developed the show. And then, one day when we rumsassen and a little rumbl?delten said, suddenly all "comparison is not with Buffy, Buffy never tell." And even the authors told me: "Jay, that's a high bar for us." But I have not let up. I told them that I share this awareness and this also claims to have fun. And we have them. In some ways we strive.
In one episode someone even said, "Oh, my God, that I've ever seen on Buffy." And so we had to throw out the entire episode because it had too much like Buffy. But there are a lot of similarities.During the Cannes Film Festival has developed the series, I said to someone one day: How about Buffy in 20 years? This is a question that somebody asked me. I have drawn a lot of ideas from it.
