If you’re a fan of ‘Grimm,’ and you’ve been anxiously awaiting for Season 3, here’s some scoop from Bitsie Tulloch, who plays Juliette, on the thrilling supernatural NBC series.
For those who don’t recall, Season 2 left viewers with one massive cliffhanger aka Nick getting turned into a zombie, getting locked inside a coffin, and being shipped off to Europe! Talk about having a bad day.
When the series returns on Friday, Oct. 25, Tulloch confirms that the premiere will pick up right where it left off. “The first few episodes back, in particular, were grander in scope than anything we’ve done before. The first few are a continuation of the whole sort of zombie storyline, which everyone seemed to really have fun with.”
She also promises there will be “a lot of action” and “stunt doubles” were involved. Possibly Tulloch herself needed a stunt double, as she revealed Juliette definitely gets in on the action of rescuing her man, Nick.
“That’s part of the thing they were setting up towards the end of Season 2 [with Rosalee and Monroe showing Juliette Wesen]. That’s really kind of what it took -- seeing it to believe it. And, now, that she believes it, even if it is kind of reluctantly...she’s definitely going to be more involved,” Tulloch said. “She kind of knows Nick better than anyone else. I mean, she’s been around for the longest, but also just the fact that she’s a vet. She’s a doctor, so, she’s going to be able to finally put those skills to use.”
If anyone is wondering about Nick’s state after living “life” as a zombie -- obviously, the series won’t keep him as zombie Nick -- Tulloch couldn’t reveal too much on the situation and whether Nick will experience side effects, “Without giving too much away, I would say that the transition isn’t necessarily going to be easy.”
But enough about Nick, let’s talk more Juliette. She’s had a pretty tough past two seasons, and now she knows all about Nick’s Grimm lifestyle. So, will she step it up this season and integrate herself into the Wesen-world? Or, will she still be a little hesitant? According to Tulloch, “I think honestly, a little bit of both...I think, after being lied to, that makes her want to be more involved.”
Honestly, who wouldn’t want to be more involved, especially after Adalind put a tailspin on Juliette’s life. From going into a “Snow White” like coma to losing her memory to becoming obsessed with Captain Renard, Juliette hasn’t had it easy. So, will there be any future catfights -- no pun intended -- between the two ladies?
“So far, the majority of [Adalind’s] storyline has been taking place more...with the Royal families in Europe...I’m sure you’re going to see -- at some point -- some revisiting of that…[and] at some point she’ll figure it out that the cat and all of that was Adalind’s fault.”
It definitely sounds like ‘Grimm’ is going to return with a bang.
If you can’t get enough of Tulloch, and you just can’t wait any longer for ‘Grimm’s return, then be sure to check out Tulloch’s latest film ‘Parkland,’ which comes out Friday, Oct. 4. Produced by Tom Hanks, and starring some of the hottest stars, including Zac Efron, Tom Welling, Marcia Gay Harden and Billy Bob Thornton, the film focuses on the events after JFK’s assassination. Tulloch plays Marilyn Sitzman, secretary to Abraham Zapruder (played by Paul Giamatti) who captured the “kill shot.”
