Interview with Tom, posted on September 18, 2014:
"That's why I loved it when I first read the pilot," Milson told critics. "It's crazy and it's not like anything I had read before."
There was no fear this show could ever jump the shark, he added, "because in the pilot we kicked the shark in the teeth."
Milson himself has jumped into a strange new world in his leap across the pond from London to Wilmington. "I'm still refusing to say, 'Y'all," he says of his Carolina experience. He likes the slower pace of life and especially swimming at the beach, admitting "that's something I don't usually do at six in the morning in England."
When an American reporter suggests he was enjoying better food he quickly corrects that impression to be "more food. "I'm living off pulled pork and bourbon and sweet potato fries. That's my Americanization."
He feels the series does have a lot of "English humour" in it, especially in the dialogue. "It would be very easy for a show about people battling for the side of good against evil ... to become earnest," he says. "So it's nice to avoid that by having a grown man confused by a pen."
Look for Crane to get even more confounded as the series goes on. Mison says he talks regularly with executive producer Mark Goffman about where the series is heading. When he was told about the cliff-hanger the producers have in store for this season, Milson says, "my jaw hit the ground even harder than when he told me the finale last season."
