Bridget Regan played the gorgeous, young warrior Kahlan on the syndicated drama Legend of the Seeker but ever since the show was cancelled in March, a huge campaign was started by her fans to help save the show!
Bridget tells us that after two successful seasons of the show she was shocked it wasn't renewed.
(mo770) I really couldn't tell you where they were planning to head with the story. Bang, bang, bang, bang." You're thinking about your moves and how it looks. "Is that what I'll look like in a certain amount of time? If a fan recognized you in a public place, would you rather have them ignore you and pretend you weren't there, or would a polite nod or perhaps a "Hey, not to be too creepy, but I'm a huge fan and just wanted you to know that" be okay? How did that feel, finally being able to play the guy who runs everything? I think if there was one to change, we probably could have done that a little bit better, but we found our stride with six ("Elixir") and seven ("Identity"). I probably would have liked to have redone the last episode ("Tears"). I'm moving over to America pretty soon and will be off on my own. Being a freelance actor you're not really controlled by anyone.
I didn't even think the writers sometimes from week to week. I'm a really big fan of "Denna." And the fighting; I can't even express how much I loved the fighting. We had such great people there and I feel like I can just into the next, I don't know, Highlander or something. It was a boyhood dream, always, just to be able to do these choreographed fight scenes on a TV show. It became second nature, like it was just part of the job. I tried to enjoy it as much as I could, but now that it's all over, I'm like, "Am I really not going to get to do that with all those stunties again? I think we'd all benefit from getting a pointer or two from you. (mse HU) It was really great and it was something that I had in mind since season one. I think we all would have liked to redo the last episode, because we didn't know it was ending, and it would have been nice to have tied up some things. You get to be kind of be your own boss until you work with a collaborative group of people on your next job, and really, with a collaborative group of people there's never really a boss anyway.
I think they liked to have a general arc and worked from there, and had the next general arc in mind as well. And I got to do it for nine months a year for two years, almost daily. Oh my God, that's really sad." How did it feel to see a man, easily 30 years older than you, play a decrepit, exhausted you in "Wizard"? He was basically just a nice little boy who was pushed into the world like a deer in the headlights. Playing a hero like Richard on a day-to-day basis must have been amazing. So, yeah, I like going into those unkown territories.
