Bridget Regan forsook its valiant knight “Seeker” Richard the time of the 50ème Festival of Monte Carlo…

AlloCiné: Kahlan, your character in “Legend off the Seeker” is quartered between the Love and the Duty. A constant fight which makes certainly it a heroin, with the noble direction of the term… 
Bridget Regan: In any case, it is my feeling. It always makes pass its desires in the second plan. The duty above all! But when one thinks of it, Richard, Zedd and it try to save the World, they have many responsibilities on their shoulders (laughter)! It is true, Kahlan is a deeply noble character. 

The great tragedy also comes owing to the fact that it is known that it will be never fully happy… 
Not, I am not agreement! I always thought that there was hope. Of course, it tends to be kidnapped regularly, which is rather uncomfortable (laughter), it has many elements against it… But I always kept hope in connection with Kahlan and Richard. 

The episode entitled “Torn” is interesting since it shows two faces of Kahlan, one being only pure love, the other pure duty… 
What is funny for me, it is that, arrived in the middle of the turning of this episode, I had the feeling that none of these versions was really Kahlan. This character is defined only through this balance, this fight between the heart and the head. This episode the watch under two days different and extreme. What would be if it were only “Love”… or “Duty”? I deeply like this episode, it one of my is preferred series, one among those which was most demanding, rich in emotions. With final, the “Kahlan” version “Love” was really to collect with the small spoon (laughter)! A true teenager… 

With final, the search of Kahlan, which grew by accepting its destiny, is also that of the emotions… 
I believe that you can put that on the account of Richard (laughter)! She falls in love, which she would never have imagined to know, or to have the right to know… As “a Confessr” (note: “Inquisitrice Mother” in VF), it learned, agreed to live without love, to be in couple only with one man, a warrior, whom it does not love. But it finds on its way this man that it will end up liking more than all in the world. Then of course, they cannot like fully, but they are together for always. At the bottom, it is happy since it is with Richard. 

“Legend off the Seeker” is pure “Heroic Fantasy”, with magic, legends… But the heart of the series thus remains the Love. It is also for that it can be addressed to everyone… 
Completely, I am entirely of agreement and besides it is one of the elements which immediately rained me in this project. This history of love was accessible, it was going to speak with everyone and not only with the fans about SF or Heroic Fantasy. Personally, I did not know anything with the “kind” before playing in the series, I had never approached it in my career. This history of impossible love… How to say? She was already told million times and yet I am always sensitive there. Always! 

Kahlan and Cara are two characters with the completely opposite characters. And yet, they resemble each other more than it does not appear to with it with the first access… 
And themselves discover it little by little, it is true. Confidence but also the mutual dependence emerged well before their friendship. They needed one the other during the engagements, to protect Richard, in their search of “Pierre of the Tears”… In my opinion, Kahlan understood that it had to trust Cara, well before the latter. The arrival of Cara in the series was an excellent thing, and not only because I adore to work withTabrett (note: Tabrett Bethell, the interpreter of Cara). The dynamics created by these two strong women, who are held head, was really one “more” for the series. 

The change of behaviour of Kahlan, which exchanged its long white dress for a behaviour sinks more adapted to the combat, was undoubtedly carried out besides under the influence of Cara… 
Oh yes! Without this long dress, Kahlan could strike a little higher (laughter)! I worked with Jane Holland, the costumière chief, on this costume. But actually, it is made up only of elements which she had already, under its dress, in its parcelling… And the end result is a complete change of the dynamics of the character. I like really this new look, they are really cool. I like the dark side of Kahlan (laughter)

It there has a few weeks, one of our Net surfers, lafouine152, wondered whether the series were cancelled. We said to him that we would ask you the question. Can you answer him? 
“lafouine152”, I do not think that Seeker will continue its adventures, in any case, not with ABC - Disney which produced the series up to that point. But if a new producer posted his interest, perhaps that would be different. It would be even the only means of continuing the show. After all, I was not released yet from my contract. Unfortunately that does not seem to take this direction…
