Oh my god, my character’s entrance this season is so cool! So Cool!
That’s what Michael Vlamis said when we asked him about his Roswell, New Mexico character this season. Despite getting to the New York Comic Con roundtable a bit late, Vlamis was bouncing with energy when he sat down with us to talk everything Michael Guerin and Roswell.
Evidently excited for fans to see his character this season, Vlamis said that fans will see the old Michael Guerin “but like times 10.” Vlamis calls him a wild man who’s reeling from a lot of pain but still trying to mask it. And while a drunk dirty Guerin going off the rails may be fun for us to watch and fun for Vlamis to act, he admits that these darker scenes are starting to take a toll on his psyche.
I’ve had a lot of really emotional work this year already, more than last year, because of coping with the loss of the brother and it messes me up man.
I don’t know how people can go home […] I don’t know, it’s just too much… I don’t know, I don’t know, but I’m so fulfilled by the dark stuff.
Thankfully, it isn’t all dark. There may be a small light for our beloved alien. We already saw a bit of a connection between Guerin and Maria DeLuca during season one and we know there will be more this upcoming season.
Naturally we wanted to know: how does an actor find and/or develop that steamy, realistic chemistry with someone? Vlamis admitted that finding chemistry can actually be super easy. The only caveat really is that both parties are open and willing to get vulnerable with one another.
It’s very easy to find chemistry, but both people have to be very open. Luckily, the people on the show has been very generous and makes you feel safe and comfortable in being open. When you’re that open with someone, people match you.
So while we may not see any steamy Malex scenes this season, Vlamis assures us that fans will still have their fill of Malex. According to the actor, Guerin and Alex still spends a lot of time together, just in a different context, which is very fresh and refreshing. At least it sounds like he and Blackburn are on the same page.
No air date’s been announced yet for Roswell’s season two but we know that the cast and crew are currently filming down in Sante Fe, New Mexico.
Lately, we’re in the middle of shooting right now and so it’s kind of been run and gun right now.
And when asked whether he preferred this method of acting or if he preferred knowing the nitty gritty details in his character’s story arch, Vlamis said he actually loves not knowing what was in store for Guerin.
I like that because it’s more real. I don’t know where I’m going to be or what’s going to happen later today. If someone told me, ‘yo you’re going to get in a car accident later today,’ that’ll probably effect the way that I live. Same thing as an actor. You don’t want to act as if you know what’s going to happen so I kind of like it that way.
