Winter might be raging across Canada right now, but back when Lost Girl was filming their big fourth season in Toronto, the hottest days of summer had the city sweltering. The cast, for their part, were calm and cool on set as I sat down to chatted with them about the developments from season three, and where things were headed for the show’s new season that was still in the midst of production.

Lost Girl star Anna Silk, who plays the succubus Bo on the hugely popular series, has had a big year since the last time The GATE was on set with her and the rest of the Lost Girl cast. While Lost Girl started filming the fourth season, Silk was busy as a new mom, and she had even discovered that she was pregnant at the end of the last season. Silk had given birth to a boy during the show’s hiatus, ahead of season four, and had him on set with her during filming for the new season.

For the longest time I have been equating the work being done by HBO to the stuff that was being done during the last great epoch of American cinema–the seventies. In the seventies maverick filmmakers like Coppola, Schrader, Friedkin, Altman and Scorcese flourished with a kind of hard edged, reality-based storytelling that was still being served up to audiences in an interesting and entertaining way that made a number of their works classics and made their careers legendary.
