Here at TV Goodness, we claim our favorites, and if you’ve read me a while, you know how I feel about Lucas Bryant. Color me stoked when the Haven alum popped up in the cast list for a new Hallmark Channel movie, Tulips in Spring. which premieres this Saturday at 9/8c. I recently chatted with Bryant one-on-one about the film, Haven‘s conclusion, his recent film release, The Girl King, and his upcoming Canadian series, Shoot the Messenger.
Tulips in Spring marked a return to work for Bryant after a nice break. Shoot the Messenger wrapped in Toronto late last year and then, after an annual trip to Australia for the holidays, he took some time to hang out with his family. When Hallmark came calling, he was happy to go back to work, and even happier to switch gears to a romantic comedy.
“I got sent the script and I read it and thought it was lovely and that was that. It was a 14-day shoot in and around Vancouver, where I hadn’t been in a while, so that was nice,” he says. “We were in beautiful locations so that was gorgeous. I play Tom, who is working at the family farm of Rose, who’s gone back to help her parents. He re-introduces and re-inspires her to get in touch with her true self. He helps her see that she could be part of her family life again.”
The film was a nice change of pace after five seasons of Haven, followed by another drama in Shoot the Messenger. “It was cool to be able to smile and have a good time, not that my previous characters don’t have a good time, but this guys is much more relaxed and easy and comfortable,” he explains. “There’s definitely a genre thing that Hallmark has expertly developed over the years, but I think the thing to hold onto as an actor is just that there’s a lot of heart, and if you can get to the heart of things, you’ll be right where they need you to be.”

The main cast of the hit Syfy series “Haven” all have their bets on how long the series will last, and show producer and distributor Entertainment One is hoping actor Lucas Bryant (The Vow, “Queer as Folk”) has it right.
Fellow “Haven” actors Eric Balfour (Skyline, “24”) and Emily Rose (“E.R.,” “Brothers and Sisters”) are guessing five and seven seasons, respectively, while Bryant is going for a full nine.
After how popular the first two seasons have been with fans and critics alike — and with a third season set to debut in late September — the idea of that many seasons isn’t a stretch.
Centered on Rose’s FBI character, Audrey Parker, the series follows her investigation into the paranormal happenings of Haven, Maine, a refuge for the gifted and a place of constant intrigue and secrets, including secrets about Parker’s forgotten past.
“The audience tunes in because they like the dynamics of these characters,” Balfour said, speaking at the annual San Diego Comic-Con International. “My favorite episodes are the ones that have a direct impact on us.”
The third season of the series will debut in the fall, a change from the summer debuts of the first two seasons, and a show of faith in the series.
“It’s a double-edged sword,” Balfour said. “There are more viewers in the fall, but there’s more competition. It can be a blessing or a curse.”
Fans are urged to tune in regardless, as after two seasons of establishing characters and plot lines, season three “is the biggest we’ve done,” Balfour said.
“For fans who’ve been watching [the entire series] there’s a lot of payoff,” Rose said. “That’s one of the best parts about making it to the third season. We’re family. We’re friends.”
The third season of “Haven” will debut Sept. 21, and on Sept. 4 Entertainment One will release the second season on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Bonus features have yet to be announced, though cast members are hinting at commentaries, deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes footage.
“I know I’ve given them at least three and a half hours of complete nonsense,” Bryant joked. “They can choose to use that.”
Lucas chatted with scifi vision about Haven’s finale and what might be coming up for Lucas and the show possible s3……
SCIFI VISION: How are you feeling about how Audrey and Nathan’s relationship is changing?
LUCAS BRYANT: Yes, well it’s been a long time coming, huh?
And yes it is exciting. I think a lot of fans got what they wanted this past episode – I mean a taste of it anyway. And then maybe some were horrified, but I hope there’s not too many of those. But yes I’m sorry to say I don’t see it progressing as easily as one might hope and realize. I mean there’s definitely going to be some roadblocks and speed bumps, I can’t and won’t tell you exactly what they are, and I don’t know the half of them. But yes I think that puts us on a trajectory that has potential to be lovely, but will probably inevitably be very difficult and potentially dangerous.
QUESTION: Your work in last week’s episode, when you’re at the meeting after Audrey kissed, you’re absolute perfection.
LUCAS BRYANT: Oh, thank you. Yes that was a big moment, we really were concerned about getting it right. And I think it landed well, so I’m very happy about that.

Syfy’s Haven follows FBI Agent Audrey Parker, played by Emily Rose, who first came to the town of Haven, Maine last season to investigate strange occurancances in the town. Many of the town’s residents, including the local cop she teams up with, Nathan Wournos (Lucas Bryant), are afflicted with “troubles.” They are also joined by Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour), the local smuggler who seems to know more than he lets on. Audrey struggles to find answers about her mother and even about herself.
Rose is known for such television series as Brothers & Sisters, Jericho, and ER. She also stars as Elena Fisher in the popular video game series Uncharted.
Emily Rose talked to the media recently about her return to Haven, which airs Fridays on Syfy.
QUESTION: There’s such great chemistry on screen with you and Lucas and Eric and it really translates, I’m sure, from your friendship off screen. However, Eric revealed your nickname to some journalists last week, how much trouble is he in?
EMILY ROSE: He’s in a bit of trouble. Lucas came up with it, but then Eric has implemented it and I just giggle. I feel like on set it’s like having these two older brothers that I never had. I always asked for older brothers, but now you know you’ve got to be careful what you wish for because those two like I’m on their on-set sister and they’re constantly going after me in any little way; any little nickname that – you know?
And of course, then Eric makes it all public by Twittering about it. It’s kind of funny, but it’s kind of a rolling thing with Lucas. Lucas kind of comes up with new nicknames on a weekly basis. It’s whatever strikes his fancy, and then he just goes to town with it.
