to ILANA with Lucas' commentary!
"I dont know when
this photo was taken or where it came from but... this is me. I
think it was shot outside my last house. I recognize the stone
work. Gotta say - Im looking pretty tired here. I must have been
going out for dinner or something."
2/15/2011 - Heard from
LUCAS WOLF (Samuel.)
He's doing great and is sorry his character of Samuel never made it to Season 2,
but is happy that he was a part of "V!"
05/18/10 - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH ILANA
Did you audition for your role in "V" or were you offered the part
LW: I attended an
audition in late January and was ultimately chosen to play the role of
IR: You were a fan of the original "V." What character(s) were your
LW: Yeah, I was a
definitely a fan of the original. It actually feels a little surreal
being part a show I experienced as a kid.
IR: Please give insight into your "V" character. Example: does your
character have any flaws or weaknesses.
LW: Samuel has a bit
of an edge to him. He comes across as a bit hard but his commitment to
the Fifth Column is what drives him. Being on the ship forces him to
lead a double life. He can't reveal his emotions or intentions without
compromising both himself and those around him. I feel that he's at the
end of his rope and is itching for a fight but knows that without a
carefully structured plan in place the Fifth Column would be wiped out.
Anna is ruthless and the odds are heavily stacked against them. By
leveraging his position on the ship he has been able to aid the Fifth
Column on the ground and throughout the fleet. Its a task he takes very
IR: How do you relate to your character in real life, if at all?
LW: I'm protective of
those close to me in my real life. I can relate to that aspect. I use
that and amplify the stakes to feed Samuel's inner world.
IR: What was your average day like shooting "V?" (sitting around
most of the time, playing video games, reading script, etc.)
LW: An average day
consists of signing in and then going through hair and makeup where I am
turned into an alien. I'll run my lines and take in any last minute
script changes that may have occurred since the night before. A few
minutes before going to the stage I step into character and review
Samuel's intentions and motivations. Then it's off to the green screen.
Being on the stage has its challenges because the mothership sets are
all virtual. The lights can also make it pretty hot in there. I've joked
that Its a lot like doing a play in a giant green fry pan without a set.
Since the entire environment doesn't exist while were filming we really
have to engage our imaginations during the scenes. It's a challenge, but
it can be a lot of fun.
How did you get into acting? If you could be anything other than an
actor, what would you be?
LW: I don't
think I've ever not been an actor. It just took me some time to approach
to it as a career.
What were you interests when you were in school as opposed to now?
Example: favorite subject or sport. Has that changed in time or still
LW: I still have many
of the same interests. As a boy I loved art, architecture, travel,
acting, reading, astronomy, anything scientific, people, psychology,
philosophy, martial arts, hiking, nature, to name a few. I still love
all of it. I haven't really changed that much and I've been fortunate
enough to act on and explore many of those interests. Its been a pretty
amazing life so far and it just keeps getting better.
Who are your favorite book authors and musicians?
LW: Authors -
wouldn't even know where to start. This may sound odd but I love of
reading text books. I'll often just choose a new subject and gather all
the books I can find on a given topic and start reading. Music - again,
where to start. The Clash, The White Stripes, Massive attack, Radiohead,
White Zombie, Thievery Corp, Brian Eno, NIN, Chicane, English Beat,
Tool, and about 5000 others that I could continue to list off the top of
IR: Has anyone ever given you advice when you were a child that's
stuck with you forever? If so, what was the advice?
LW: Don't be one of
those people who hits the end of their life and regrets all the things
they didn't do.
