In a brief interview for Digital Spy, Erica revealed she “would love to star in a UK drama like Happy Valley” and teases Saving Hope Season 5. Check it out!
Smallville fans of the UK, listen up – Lois Lane herself, Erica Durance, wants to star in a UK show, so start the campaign now.
We had a chat with Erica about her current show Saving Hope, and she told us about her love of all televisual things British.
“It’s my dream [to star in a UK show],” she told Digital Spy. “I live in BBC land! That’s what I Netflix and watch all the time.
“Those are the kind of shows I want to be part of. I just finished The River, which was fantastic, and Happy Valley, and Scott & Bailey. They have just such good storytelling.
“As much as I’ve been part of big sci-fi and SFX dramas, I also just like a simple story that is told well, and in the UK I feel like they do that like no other place.
“And I’m not just saying that because you’re from there, I have my whole life loved Jane Austen and all the incarnations of Pride and Prejudice, so I’ve always kinda lived in that world. If I ever had the chance to be part of something like that, I could almost hang up my hat and say, ‘I did it!'”
So there you have it. If the third season of Happy Valley stars a certain Canadian actress, we’d like to think it was down to us.
Meanwhile, Erica teased what to expect with the upcoming fifth season of Saving Hope, so spoilers ahead, saying: “We’re trying to go a little bit darker with it, we’re trying to really challenge the Alex and Charlie relationship given what they have to deal with.
“There are some tough times ahead for both of them and being able to go between the two different worlds for Charlie definitely has a devastating effect for him at some point.”
Saving Hope currently airs on Tuesday nights at 9pm on the Sony Channel in the UK – available on Sky 157, Virgin 193, BT and Talk Talk 331.
