A Few Words With …
Zap2it: “Falling Skies” Season 1, you shot in Toronto, Canada, but for Season 2, you moved to Vancouver. What’s the difference?
Zap2it: For this show (which premiered June 17) your character, Tom Mason, and the rest of the 2nd Massachusetts always seem to be fighting invading aliens in forests, fields, warehouses and other rough locations. What’s the value in that?
Noah Wyle: Yeah, an abandoned asbestos factory or a railroad. Not a lot of glamour in our world. I say that half in appreciation, because this is not a show that can be easily done in Los Angeles. It’s significant that we’re all away from our comfort zones, in terms of fostering a sense of camaraderie and giving it that patina of authenticity.
Zap2it: You looked thin and haggard in the premiere. Was that makeup or the real thing?
“Falling Skies” airs Sundays on TNT.
