Interview: On Leaving ‘Lost Girl,’ Her Fans, And What’s Next
Posted by Brianne on December 09, 2014 in Articles & Interviews,Lost Girl

Ksenia Solo may be moving on from “Lost Girl,” but she’s not leaving without really taking stock of what the show has given her career — and her life.

Solo joined the fantastical Canadian show when she was 21, and fans immediately took to the sarcastic, sexy Kenzi character (arguably, Kenzi went on to become the fan favourite in the franchise), so it came as quite a shock when Kenzi was “killed off” at the end of Season 4. The internet was awash in theories about her death, and fans were certain that she’d reappear in Season 5, the final season of “Lost Girl.”

They weren’t wrong; Solo is indeed back on “Lost Girl” for its two-part last season, but Kenzi will be appearing in less than half of the 16 episodes. Still, fans are pleased, and Solo wanted to give her character a proper send-off before moving on.

HuffPost Canada TV spoke with Solo in an exclusive one-on-one chat, and we talked about how she feels about the show coming to a close, why she decided to explore new opportunities, and what she has to say to her die-hard fans.

HuffPost Canada TV: A lot of my questions are framed around you departing the show, but that’s not really fair, is it? You’re still on “Lost Girl.”
Ksenia Solo: I’m there. I’m not there in the same capacity. I’m not in every episode. I’m there because the fans are incredible, and I wanted to make sure that Kenzi was there for them.

HuffPost Canada TV: So was this a conscious departure on your part? Did you want to be away from “Lost Girl,” but at the same time ensure that your character got the right ending?
Ksenia Solo: No, I would say it’s not about being “away.” Basically, what happened is I came to a fork in the road and I had to make a decision for myself. I started “Lost Girl” when I was 21, and it’s been a six-year commitment. It’s a long time in a person’s life, especially at that age. I really wanted to expand myself creatively, and in order to do that and continue to grow as an actor, I needed to have the chance to play other roles and do other projects. But you need time for that, and I didn’t have it.

I love the show, and I will be forever grateful to people like our creator and producers, our network, our wonderful cast and crew, everyone who’s made “Lost Girl” possible. Simply, I just needed to be challenged and I need to continue to grow as an artist.

Turn: 3 Stills

“Peggy Shippen is the bridge that connects two very important men, John Andre and Benedict Arnold. They are both madly in love with her and their connection eventually changes the course of history,” Solo tells Zap2it.

“Turn” Season 2 heads to the suburbs of Philadelphia, which at the time was the capitol of the United States. That is where Peggy will meet Benedict Arnold and lead him on his inevitable path to turning on his country.

“Peggy is an extremely smart young woman, with a knack for politics, which people don’t expect because of her young age, alluring appearance and social status,” Solo says. “I’m excited to reveal her fascinating character, which was misjudged by many people. She was a great mystery.” (Source)

Turn: Owain Yeoman Interview
Posted by Brianne on November 14, 2014 in Turn

Owain Yeoman, Turn’s Benedict Arnold, mentions Ksenia and her character Peggy Shippen in a new interview.

Craig Silverstein told me some of the action in season two shifts to Philadelphia, which is where Arnold fatefully meets Peggy Shippen, the beautiful young lady who would play a role in his betrayal of the patriot cause.
Owain Yeoman – I’m still yet to meet Ksenia Solo, who plays Peggy Shippen, so all of the beginnings of that are still yet to happen. They’ve been kind of establishing the relationship between Peggy and Major André. So at the moment, all of my romantic warmup work has been done by J.J. [Feild], and then I’ll pick up the baton later. Peggy becomes a catalyst for [his defection], but she also becomes a bit of sweetness, someone who can say, “Listen, it’s all good.” When Arnold’s with women, he’s a little more vulnerable, a little more romantic. But in many respects, she will become his Lady MacBeth. And I think it’s very interesting: there’s two very interlinking and very separate stories—Benedict Arnold’s A-plot and B-plot, as it were, the romantic and the military. And the two of them haven’t yet run together. We’re establishing him right now as this great general, this guy who’s been overlooked repeatedly by Congress. Hopefully, the plan is to allow this story a bit of a longer burn. And it also becomes a very interesting counterpoint to the Culper Ring. (Source)
