Michael heeft een interview gehad met TVFanatic over het huidige seizoen van ‘Rosswel, New Mexico’.
Hi Michael, how are you?
I’m doing well. I’m doing well. How are you?
Good, I’m great. Thank you. So, I’m just jumping right in here. Kyle has had a lot going on in season three, to put it mildly. How would you describe his journey so far this season?
Well, as I’m sure you know, Kyle is continuing to put out fires. He’s there for as many people as he can be, but he’s definitely called upon. And whenever he’s needed, I feel like he shows up, but in episode 3×09, that’s going to air next week, I think we kind of see things.
Kyle Listens – Roswell, New Mexico Season 3 Episode 4
He’s reached his limit. And you sense his frustration. And I feel that it’s warranted even though it comes in a bit hot, but we’re in season three, and his life has taken a turn. And he’s finding out more and more about his own family history, and I think it’s just been a bit frustrating for him.
Sure. And while Kyle was recovering, the audience got the big bomb dropped on us that Ramos is Kyle’s uncle. And that adds another layer to the Valenti history and legacy. So can you kind of speak to where Kyle currently is in regards to his feelings about his father and his feelings about the legacy of his family?
Well, I think what the writers have done is really, from season one to season three, has painted a picture of who Kyle’s father was. Who is Jim Valenti? And at first, we thought he’s this great guy that Kyle had looked up to and always wanted to make proud. And maybe that is the driving force in everything and anything that Kyle does.
Well, now we’re finding out a bit more about who Jim really was. We’ve been on this journey of season two with Jesse Manes, that whole interaction.
And now we’re finding out a bit more in season three. And that really flips Kyle’s world upside down. I don’t see how it couldn’t. So he becomes this angsty, frustrated individual because you’re thinking you know somebody, and you’re finding out all these different things about him or her.
Kyle Looks On – Roswell, New Mexico Season 3 Episode 5
And so with Eduardo, I feel that it’s like, “What else? What else am I missing?” What else can be thrown his way? Because now we find out that, yeah, Eduardo, “Oh, you’re my uncle. Interesting. Why hasn’t anybody ever told me that before? Where have you been? Can you help me understand what is going on?”
And when you think about that, Kyle probably thinks, “Well, who am I really? What is this really about?” So I don’t know if he’s, maybe, in the middle of wondering or questioning his own identity of what is this Valenti code? Has that been a lie? Because that’s something that he’s lived by, so that’s where we’re at.
Will we get to find out more about what happened the night that Kyle was attacked?
No, not really. I’m trying to think fast here of exactly, no, I mean, when we started episode 309, we find out, has he been in a coma? Was he injected with something? Was he knocked out? So, it was briefly explained, but I think, more so, we get into Eduardo and Kyle. Who are they to one another?
And that is a jumping-off point for Kyle.
Helping Isobel – Roswell, New Mexico
You touched on this a little bit earlier, but Kyle is not only the doctor that everyone needs, but he’s also a confidant as well. Can you speak to Kyle’s role, how you see Kyle’s role within his group of friends?
Yeah. I think Kyle is somebody that you can depend on. He’s somebody who has everybody’s best interest at heart. If you call upon him, he’s going to be there for you. And I think that what I’ve enjoyed about being on the show is how Kyle is interwoven between all the storylines, everything that’s happening.
He is a part of that, in some capacity. So that’s been fun to play just as an actor with everybody on our cast, but that’s just going to continue. And I feel like it’s just going to get heavier. Just a heavier burden on Kyle, on what else needs to be done, how he can help, what is asked of him, needed of him to finish off the season.
And that also kind of flows into my next question, which is that Kyle is a character that has deeply personal relationships with pretty much all of the core characters, but is there a certain dynamic that you wish could be explored a bit more on the show?
Like this season, we’ve got you with Michael some more and some more with you and Rosa, is there any particular dynamic you’d like to see explored more?
Kyle In LA – Roswell, New Mexico Season 3 Episode 1
Great question. A hundred percent. Kyle and Isobel. I want to see it. I want them to…what is their dynamic? Cause I think the energy that Lily brings to Isobel is so… it’s not infectious, but it’s… it is infectious, but it’s also, she just has so much energy.
She’s a ball of energy, and I want to see…and she’s powerful. She’s just fierce. And so, I’d like to see more Isobel and Kyle scenes. What is their friendship relationship to one another? And I’d like to explore that.
Yeah, that’d be great. Cause I also think with Kyle, every person he gets to interact with brings out a different side to him, which is really nice to see as well.
Yes, very much so. I’m glad you noticed that because it’s true. It’s true. And that’s why I picked Isobel because I think that out of everybody, you see the most, you see such a different side of Kyle whenever he’s interacting with Isobel.
