NYCC 2016: Wrap Up

 

 

Tom returned to the Javits Center in New York City last week to meet fans and talk about the coming season of Sleepy Hollow at New York Comic Con. He signed autographs on Saturday and Sunday, and took part in a photo op session each day, which turned out to be quite popular. On Sunday, he was joined by castmates Lyndie Greenwood, Jeremy Davies and Janina Gavankar as well as executive producer Raven Metzner and co-showrunners Albert Kim and Clifton Campbell in the press room, and for a panel on the Main Stage.

During the panel, the audience was shown a 5 minute sizzle reel of clips from upcoming episodes. Reaction from the crowd was very positive and vocal - from raucous applause when Crane first appears, to woots when the Headless Horseman galloped on screen, to outright screams of surprise and delight when Jeremy, aka John Noble, was unexpectedly revealed (for more on that shocking moment, read this write-up from the panel moderator, TVLine’s Kim Roots). The EP’s and actors were questioned by Roots about the controversial finale, and fans from the audience asked questions about the death of Joe Corbin and commented about the diversity of the show. We learned more about the genesis of Janina's character, Diana Thomas. Janina shared that she wanted the character to represent the multitudes of Christians from India, so had the character's last name changed to reflect that. New addition and big bad of the season Jeremy Davies described his character as being an evil Steve Jobs, mixed with Lex Luthor with a bit of Hannibal Lector thrown in. The EPs teased 5 things to watch for in Season 4:

  1. Crane signs a lease to his very first apartment -- too bad it's haunted.
  2. Crane finds himself in court facing murder charges. The question is, where and when is that court?
  3. A very special discovery will be made about the truth behind the Lincoln Memorial.
  4. Crane will post for the first time on social media.
  5. A shocking truth will be learned that will redefine the most iconic moment of the entire series

Prior to the panel, the cast and producers chatted with journalists in the press room. A couple of the resulting interviews have been posted, with hopefully more to come. See below for interviews with Tom and Lyndie from The Mary Sue and The Workprint:

 


 

Still no word of a premiere date, but Season 4 of Sleepy Hollow is slated to be back on Fridays at 9pm on FOX in early 2017.

Dragon Con 2016: DCTV Interview

 

 

Tom stopped by for an interview with DCTV, and had a chat with a gentleman wearing a kilt named Crispy. Totally par for the course at Dragon Con. He talks about his experience at the con this year and last, and casts aspersions on cereal box characters. All in a day's work.

 

Dragon Con 2016: Panel Videos

 

Tom participated in two Q&A panels at Dragon Con 2016 with new co-star Janina Gavankar, and you can watch both of them below. They talked about a wide variety of topics, from their approach to acting in general and other projects they've done, to more specifics about the show. Janina had only been working on the show for a few weeks, so she deferred to Tom on questions about prior seasons, but they were both able to give fans a little insight into her character and what they have in store for us moving forward.

A few spoilers were dropped here and there. For instance, we will be hearing the clatter of hoof steps when a certain evil-yet-beloved Headless Horseman makes an appearance at some point, plus we should be prepared for a monster of the arachnid persuasion. Also, the big bad of the season, played by Jeremy Davies, is not as much of a supernatural villain as we've seen in the past. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until early 2017 to see any of it, when the new season of Sleepy Hollow premieres on Fridays at 9pm.
