‘Sleepy Hollow’ star Tom Mison discusses joining the show, working ‘The Fringe’ star John Noble
Sleeppy Hollow returned this week with Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane who is missing.
Now Mison discusses with Collider about having faith in the creators and joining the show.
“I always like to have faith that an audience will suspend their disbelief, if you present it to them in the right way. I find it peculiar when people scoff at one bold idea, and yet they’ll then turn over and watch a man travel through time in a police phone box. I think it’s just how you present the idea. With Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Len Wiseman, their careers have been built on asking people to suspend their disbelief. Once you do that, and you can get an audience to go with you on an idea, then you can just go anywhere, and that’s where the fun stuff happens. So, I had no real trepidation. I had faith in the great American public that they would join us, and luckily it seems to have paid off.”
As fans return to the show, Lt Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) seeks help from the mysterious Henry Parrish (guest star John Noble), who holds vital clues about how to end the dangerous blood tie to the Headless Horseman as explained by Mison.
“John Noble of Fringe will become a very, very important character in the series, and you’ll see why. He’s a savior.”
Of course, Mison continues by praising The Fringe star.
“It’s really remarkable. Our first scene together, it was just me and him, sitting opposite each other at a table. He came in and sat down, and we did the scene, and I was quite surprised when someone shouted, “Cut!,” because I forgot that there were cameras and other people about the place. When you’re acting with someone like John, you just completely lose yourself in it. He’s mesmerizing. He’s brilliant.”
