POLISHED EDGE: Celebrity Q&A
Anna Silk of ‘Lost Girl’ on Syfy
Q: This show is unlike any other I’ve seen. Is it based on a book or something else?
A: No, when I auditioned I knew the basic premise of the show, but after we got picked up, they created this amazing, rich world that draws on so many world mythologies. Every time I get a script, I’m surprised. It’s like if you were a kid who dreamed up something wild, you’ll find it on our show.
Q: If you didn’t know that much about the context of the show, why did you want to play Bo?
A: When I read a lot of female-driven scripts in our genre, the woman was always very tough, very strong. That’s wonderful, but what I love about Bo is that she is so vulnerable. The greatest source of her shame growing up is what becomes the greatest source of her power. That’s such a great, universal message for young women who are watching. That’s part of the appeal of our show, and it’s what I related to: the human part of Bo.
