Interview: Jeffrey Pierce With TV Addict

What is the best part about portraying a character like Roger?
JEFFREY: When you’re tasked with playing the savior of the world, the best part is finding the parts that are much more shaded in gray than in white and the human parts of playing that kind of role, because nobody’s perfect. So to find the ways that he is flawed and finding his darkness with the help of Phil [Klemmer] — just Roger’s humanity and his weakness to sort of counter-balance this incredible amount of power and prowess and strength and capability, really being able to bridge that gap between those two sides was really a pleasure.

Did you get a chance to sit down with Mark Pellegrino to discuss the relationship between Jedikiah and Roger. That is one of the more complicated relationships on the show.
JEFFREY: We both came with an innate understanding of the conflicts between the two of them. I cannot speak for Mark, but it was very easy for us to sort of feel the tension between the two and also the incredible amount of love and connection that brothers have. It is a very conflicted relationship, even now as Jedikiah is sort of revealed as not the big bad guy. There’s a lot of bad and good in all of the actions that they have taken. So we knew that it was going to be complicated from the get go.

If you could pick out the one thing that you most admire about Roger, what would you say it is?
JEFFREY: I think that the willingness to be sacrificed for the greater good. I think that is an incredibly powerful attribute to have. It takes an amazing amount of courage to be willing to say, “Okay, I’ll lay down so that others may live.” It doesn’t get any better than that in any facet of humanity. So that’s an easy thing to admire and fall in love with in terms of who Roger is.

Roger was willing to do that initially, but it has been 10 years, and it seems like when he wakes up, he is kind of hesitant to step into the role of savior. Is that an internal tension he is going to wrestle with?
JEFFREY: I don’t want to give anything away, but there is a hesitancy to go right back into the fire. But I think that is still his drive. He’s torn. He is absolutely torn, but I think in ways that anybody in the role is. I have been fortunate to know and meet through different jobs that I’ve done, guys that have been firemen or guys who work in the Navy Seals, and there is certainly in the back of their head and their family on their mind when they go and do their job. But going and doing their job entails the possibility that they are never coming back. So I think that within that world, those guys know how to embrace their family when they are right in them and the moments that are right in front of them know that tomorrow it might not be there. So I think that Roger is in that place as he first comes back around — the need to experience these things in order to remind himself of what he is willing to sacrifice himself for.

Roger also has a complicated relationship going back with John (Luke Mitchell) that set John up. Will Roger feel like he needs to atone a little bit for duping John?
JEFFREY: I think what we will see over the next three episodes is that everyone has to come to a reckoning with the choices that they have made, and I think that the choices that Jedikiah and Roger made have impacted the people around them, and they will both have to come to terms with all of that. What they did to John, they did for the greater good. That doesn’t make what they did to John right and it doesn’t make them not culpable for turning a young man who was blessed with the inability to kill, and turning him into a killer so that he could be a tool to protect the greater good. There’s nothing right about that. But that is the choice that they felt they had to make, and I think it haunts Roger and Jedikiah as much as it does John. And there is a reckoning coming for everyone.

In Roger’s quest to be the savior again, is he going to go after the Machine or is he going to go after the Founder? Or does he want to take them both down?
JEFFREY: I think if he could kill the Founder, he would. I think there is nothing morally, in his mind, stopping him and he thinks the Founder is worth killing. But he can’t. He is incapable and he looks on that as a gift and he is not going to give that up. But stopping the Machine is the key because the Founder has discovered a way of winning the war. So that is going to be a paramount thing for Roger to do.

What is it about that Machine? What makes it such a diabolical weapon?
JEFFREY: (Laughs) Can’t give that up. It’s everything that the Founder could possibly desire and nothing that anyone else beyond him would want. So it is a very powerful tool.

In this next episode “A Sort of Homecoming,” what kind of teasers can you talk about for that episode?
JEFFREY: I would say that Roger is not necessarily coming bearing peace and calm to the Tomorrow People world or for any of the characters in it. I’d say he is a match thrown into a pool of gasoline and the results of his arrival are going to throw shock-waves through everyone’s journey. Transformation is coming for all of them and it is because Roger returned. Some good transformation, some bad and some in between. But nobody is going to leave this thing unscarred.

Interview: Jeffrey Pierce With Zap2It

Zap2it: How does it feel to not be dead?
Jeffrey Pierce: It’s excellent to not be dead. It certainly beats the alternative!

Is everything good with Roger now that he has returned from his frozen grave?
I’m not sure everything’s great. I think that Roger’s return brings a lot of chaos with it — maybe as much good as bad comes with his return. Most of the good is banking on the fact that he’s the guy who can stop the Founder. And that’s the question, because they are very much equals in terms of their abilities. In terms of what he personally brings to the table, everyone is conflicted except maybe Stephen, who’s been fighting to bring him back. I think it’s very difficult for Jed. And it’s difficult for John and Marla and Luca and Cara, who doesn’t know him at all. And Russell too. So he is a wrench thrown into the works of everybody’s lives. They’ll all have to face themselves, now that he’s returned.

What is Roger’s main motivation going forward?
I think that if he could kill, he would kill the Founder. Because he realizes that the greatest threat that there is to the Tomorrow People and to humankind lies in the hands of Bathory. So stopping him is the only reason that he has for being back. But then that’s complicated by his love for his family and his desire to protect them and be with them.

It’s hard to be the savior! Especially when you’re very much — you may be an advanced human being, but you’re still a human being. It’s very difficult to bridge that gap to be a father and also have the weight of the world on your shoulders. Phil [Klemmer] has done an incredible job of bringing conflict to those conflicts in a very human way in the midst of sci-fi action. So it’s complicated but it’s grounded in reality, in those relationships, which makes it fun to play.

One of the most complicated relationships for Roger has to be with John. How does that play out?
I think that it gets to the other side of it in a way that is painful and unpredictable. But true to the psychology of both the characters. Roger and Jedikiah really threw John under the bus to deceive the Founder into believing that Roger was dead and gone. So there’s a comeuppance for both Jed and Roger for what they did to someone who looked at them as father figures.

With Roger’s return, does this solidify whether Jedikiah or the Founder is on the “good” path?
The show is reflective of the world in the way that good science fiction is. There’s a lot of bad in the good guys. And there are a lot of difficult and cynical choices that they made to achieve the greater good. They did that at the cost to themselves morally. Jedikiah has to confront all of those things on the return of his brother, who was his moral compass until he was frozen in a block of ice. They’re going to have to come to terms with the evil they’ve done in the service of good.

What is the tone of the final run of episodes?
It is all extraordinarily immediate and dramatic in terms of what’s happening in front of their faces. Everything that has built to this point — every character has a massive transformation between now and the end in terms of where they end up compared to where they are right now — no one’s in the same place. So all the storytelling is present time from now until the capper.

Interview: Jeffrey Pierce With Spinoff Online

Spinoff Online: It’s good to see that they’ve thawed you out at last! What’s it been like to play a part in a show where you have to be either cryo-frozen or just covered in ice while so many action scenes are acted around you?


Jeffrey Pierce:
 [Laughs] There is a certain hallucinogenic quality to being trapped in that chamber. What you don’t know is that in order to get the smoke in there without it being toxic, they have to make it exceedingly cold. So laying there in the smoke with a piece of Plexiglass two inches away from your face is a fairly intense experience when you’re doing it for hours on end. I was very grateful in the last episode when they were fighting on top of it that I have a fantastic stuntman named Joel who’s really good at his job who split the time with me. But you just have to find your Zen and stay calm … and not fall asleep.

Your character Roger has been a part of the show since the pilot, and while you’ve continued to play a role in flashbacks and video clips, your return this week is something of a Rosetta Stone for the mysteries in the series. Did discuss with the writers what your full knowledge would be from that early stage?

We talked a bit about it early on and came up with a basic understanding of Roger and the backstory there. More became clear as Simon [Merrells] came in to play the Founder, and the relationship became much more crystalized over time. I wasn’t getting that many spoilers that people didn’t have, but the basic relationships and the nature of Roger and Jedekiah’s struggle as brothers we talked about a lot early on.

So what’s it like to finally be a full, flesh-and-blood member of the story at last?

Fortunately, we all did the pilot together a little more than a year ago, and I’d get up there a lot even when I was doing one or two days of flashbacks or “frozen Roger” scenes. So my relationship with everyone was strong from the beginning, and they are as generous and talented a group of people as you could hope to work with. They’ve made me feel at home.

In terms of the story, you hold a lot of cards in terms of ramping things up for the finale. In the last few episodes, we’ve seen allegiances change and people switch sides often. Can Roger throw an additional wrench in all that?
I think that Roger’s arrival brings clarity and chaos at the same time. His relationship with John and their shared history is really painful for both of them. There’s a lot of regret from Roger in terms of what he and Jedekiah put John through in terms of turning him into a killer. The choices the two brothers made were perhaps for the greater good, but they can’t be termed necessarily as “good over evil.” They did what they felt they had to do, and there’s a lot of gray area that Roger regrets much more than Jedekiah does in terms of his own sense of right and wrong.

That impacts Jed in many ways, too. Jedekiah is forced to confront his past by his brother’s return – forced to confront his misdeeds at Ultra over the years when Roger was gone. It starts at murdering and continues from there. And this is also tough on Luca – my youngest son – who is faced with a father he felt he was abandoned by. That’s to say nothing of how tough this has been on [my wife] Marla, who has been the fulcrum of this family for all these years only to have Roger walk back in and go about trying to save the world again. That’s awful for her.

But for Stephen, this is great for him. In many ways, Roger represents the bridge that he can cross in order to become a man instead of a boy. Mythologically, that’s really important for the story. Meanwhile, the Founder is going to have to face Roger, which is not something he’s looking forward to. So he brings a lot of trouble with him, but he also brings potentially the solution to stopping the Founder. That’s something that’s just about impossible for Stephen to do without him. So he’s a great card to throw in especially in Episode 20.

As for the impending finale, the show has really worked over the episodes that have already aired to up the level of sci-fi world building and just straight out action. Do you feel there’s an overriding effect the last few will have in terms of carrying the show into a second season?

I think without question. If there’s a theme for these last three episodes, it’s “death.” And by that, I mean death as a transformation. There’s not a single character on the show who won’t face the death of a part of them – some in positive ways and some in negative ways. That transformation means that everything will spin off in a different direction come Season 2. And this show deserves a Season 2 with the way we ramped it up here. It’s a really powerful way to end a season, and I’m excited to see people’s response to it.

New Finale Scoop From TV Guide

As The Founder’s plans become clear, the Tomorrow People must face a harsh truth: their much-awaited salvation can only come at the expense of humanity. “The cruel twist is that the refuge actually is Earth,” executive producer Phil Klemmer reveals. And now that his father has failed, it’s up to Steven to unite humans and Tomorrow People in order to stop The Machine and save the world. To do so, Steven will have to team up with some questionable allies, including Russell, who will be desperate to atone for his previous betrayal. Meanwhile, Jedikiah will do his best to tempt John into forsaking the Tomorrow People once and for all. “It’s actually quite a tragic finale,” Klemmer says. “There’s loss of life and loss of friendship and loss of love and loss of family.”

Interview: Luke Mitchell With Young Adult Mag

Luke Mitchell’s rise to fame on the American network show The Tomorrow People has been so quick that he’s having trouble adjusting to it himself. We’re posting this interview on his birthday, although he says he was in Ireland for his birthday last year, he admits that he doesn’t really make too many plans for this birthday usually … not like the typical stars we know who have a whole week of festivities. We asked him if he got his wish from last year and he admitted that ‘I don’t even know what I wished for’ although ‘it probably would have been something along the lines of what I’ve been living’. We’d say that’s pretty accurate, given that Luke’s only been in LA a little over a year and he’s already landed a lead role in one of the most appreciated shows on TV.

As a teenager, Luke was a keen tennis player but didn’t see himself cutting it as a professional and, as he said ‘I didn’t have anything else in my life’ … it says something about Luke’s bold personality that he thought acting would be a nice stable back up. It turns out that prior to being cast as John in Tomorrow People, this was the one audition that he actually thought he’d bombed. He was amazed that he even got a call back – ‘I just burst out laughing because it was my worst audition. I had to pull the script out of the bin because I had chucked it in there out of disgust.‘ Well, we’re very happy that he pulled the script out of the bin or else we wouldn’t have much to write about today.

We invited Luke to dish a little dirt on his costars, but he opted to keep it classy. He did reveal that Aaron Yoo (who plays Russell) is somebody that he jives particularly well with on set. ‘He’s always up for a laugh and telling a joke or making fun of my accent or whatever’ (Luke is Australian). He says that the physical aspects of the show have been particularly challenging, as the Tomorrow People are constantly having to fight with Ultra agents and ‘they’ve (the producers) already filmed the choreography with your stunt doubles. You watch the video and you just think how am I going to do this?’ although again, we’d imagine his tennis playing past has afforded him a certain lightness on his feet.

What no amount of sports training could prepare him for is the amount of on screen smooching he has to do with Peyton List, who plays Cara. Luke says of his wife (and former Home and Away co star) Rebecca Breeds ‘She knows what its like when you’re on set and when there is a sex scene or kissing scene. It is one of the most unsexy things possible because you have cameras and lights and 50 people standing around. Its just one of those things. But it is interesting sitting and watching the episode with my wife. She just sits and covers her eyes.’ We can’t blame her, if Luke was our husband we’d be madly jealous too!

Of the future, Luke takes the pragmatic line that he’d love to see Tomorrow People get picked up for another round but if not, ‘there’s always opportunity in Hollywood.’ He did an indie film last year called Seven Minutes with newby director Jay Martin, a crime thriller which we’ll be looking out for later this year.

Young Adult Mag wouldn’t be Young Adult Mag if we didn’t finish up by asking him which character in film or TV throughout history he’d like to play, and Luke obliged us – he seems to particularly gravitate towards fellow Australians. ‘I love things like Warrior with Joel Edgertion. I love the Dark Knight with Heath Ledger. I like anything that’s a little darker and a little grittier and I would probably lean more towards drama.’ What can we say, as well as being a throughly good guy, Luke’s a man of impeccable taste.
