Yesterday, Tom was interviewed via conference call by several journalists, with some live tweeting the call. He was asked (of course) about the 18th century clothing (they are "a big stinking security blanket" to the far from home Crane), balancing comedy with the drama ("we have to try to play everything straight") and also about the inevitable will they or won't they between Ichabod and Abbie:
Beharie plays Lt. Abbie Mills, the Sleepy Hollow cop who has her own experience with the supernatural and who teams up with Crane as they learn more about the strange, deadly goings-on in Sleepy Hollow. Mison laughs at the inevitable question of whether there will ever be romantic sparks between Crane and the "leftenant," as he pronounces her title.
"I think there's certainly something magic between Ichabod and Abbie," he says. "They certainly have a connection." If anything were to happen between them, Mison says, "it would certainly be fiery."
Tom was asked about his new co-star, John Noble, whose character makes his debut on this Monday's episode, "The Sin Eater" - he called John mesmerizing and briliant.
It was John Noble's turn with the reporters today, and he had some very lovely things to say about Tom:
“The whole experience with the company was good,” Noble gushed. “With Tom in particular, he’s a beautiful man, but he’s also a fantastic actor. We had a lot in common. We also found we had common ground and we had theater background…but really, it was the connection we had on set that was special.”
The new episode called "The Sin Eater" airs on Monday at 9pm on Fox. Promo and behind-the-scenes photos are up in the gallery. If you'd like to refresh your memory about what happened in those first five episodes, here is a "5 episodes in 5 minutes" recap:
