interview with CraigH

(from March 12)…here’s a snippet:

Seeking out Legend of the Seeker’s Craig Horner

Legend of the Seeker fans sounded a collective ‘nay’ last week when a representative from the Tribune Company (which owns most of the stations that air the syndicated show) revealed it would not be interested in a third season. There’s been no official announcement from ABC Studios, of course, but having recently chatted by phone with Aussie star Craig Horner (Seeker’s Richard Rahl) as he relaxed in an Auckland Starbucks, it sounds like the poor guy might be ready for a break.

For those who haven’t checked out the show, Seeker is based (more or less) on author Terry Goodkind’s bestselling “Sword of Truth” fantasy series, and serves up a buffet of familiar swords-and-sorcery treats. Look, it ain’t great, but it’s often fun. It has an appealing cast—with hotties Bridget Regan (Kahlan Amnell) and Tabrett Bethell (Cara), plus the legendary Bruce Spense (Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander)—all tramping about in gorgeous New Zealand locations (a la Lord of the Rings). And best of all, it has no TV-typical cops, doctors, or lawyers. New Zealand’s not that big a country—have you seen every square inch by now?
Craig Horner: I’m kind of confined to Auckland, actually. There’s still so much I haven’t seen. Come the weekends, I just need to watch a movie, play the guitar, go swimming at the local swimming hole; you don’t have the urge to drive an hour to go see something. But I have a friend visiting for a couple of weeks, so that will probably get me out there.
