With the premiere of Season 2 of “Krypton” airing last night, Syfy sat down for a chat with Cameron Cuffe, to talk to him about returning to the character of Seg-El for a new season, the challenges of filming the Phantom Zone scenes, and more…
SYFY: What was the most difficult scene to film in episode 201 and why? As an actor, how did you overcome this challenge?
CC: The Phantom Zone presented a lot of challenges. It’s an entirely CG environment so it’s important to discuss with all the writers, artists and technicians what the final product will look like so you can judge what level you need to perform at. “Krypton” has always been such a beautifully collaborative set to be on and that challenge was a real joy and I’m so amazed by the brilliant work done behind the camera.
SYFY: On a scale of 1 to lonely as heck, how hard was it to be hold up in the Phantom Zone in between Seasons?
CC: Madness. Utter madness. There was a beautiful direction in the script “Seg floats back and forth from feeling like he’s just got here to feeling like he’s always been here.” Playing that change in Seg was wonderful.
SYFY: Which costume or prop did you wish you could take home?
CC: My jacket. It and I have been through so much together.
