This past Tuesday, the nominees for the Canadian Screen Awards were announced in Toronto, and we were lucky enough to chat with one of the nominees: Lost Girl‘s Paul Amos! His performances in Season 4 episodes “In Memoriam” and “Origin” have landed him in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Program or Series category. After the nominees were announced, Paul shared his favourite episode from Season 4 with me, and gave us a little tease for tonight’s episode, “Here Comes the Night”!
Congratulations on your nomination! Vex got to go to some really interesting places in Season 4.
Yes, it was a bit more dramatic last season. It’s usually bordering more on comedy, but he got to go to a good place last year. The writers created a nice journey for Vex. I got a few really great episodes and got to do a bit of backstory, making him seem more complex than we first thought.
The scene that I thought was a standout was the one between Vex and Trick in Season 4’s “End of a Line”. Was there a specific scene or episode that really stands out for you from last season?
My favourite was 405 (“Let the Dark Times Roll”) for sure with Anna, when I kidnapped Bo and was about to cut my hand off. I just felt like that was what the show is about. I got to go from being the crazy villain guy to comedy guy and then it got a bit more dramatic. It was everything that I wanted that character to be, all in one episode. I really loved doing that episode. It was a lot of fun, and it was really hard to do because we did all of those scenes in one day. They were actually pushed a day before because the rest of the cast couldn’t get back from San Diego [Comic-Con]. When they phoned me at midnight, I was like, ‘Yeah, I can come in at 5 o’clock tomorrow morning and do twelve pages.’ I had a lot of fun last year.
And the high heels and ass-less chaps were just the icing on the cake.
There you have it. That’s how you win awards. You wear high heels and ass-less chaps.
This season, Vex finally made his debut in Episode 4, “When God Opens a Window” and the reactions from fans on Twitter was like a collective cheer. There’s an interesting little dynamic going on with Vex and Dyson as well as Vex and Mark.
There’s a big episode for Vex on Sunday. Big things happen. Michael [Grassi] wrote it and I think he did an amazing job. It’s really epic, actually. Everyone’s world flips around in a big way. A lot of changes come. It felt like a finale because it was so big — and [Episode] 8 is great, too — but this one is really, really big.
Make sure you’re tuned in to Lost Girl, tonight at 9pm ET/PT, only on Showcase.
