“As much as I like Fringe, hearing the beautiful Anna Torv talk in the creepy William Bell voice is rather ruining past fantasies.”
Because it’s not every day I can post a picture that captures me and Anna Torv in the same general space. So I’m going to.
Bottom right corner, that would be me in the red plaid. [The rest of that back row: Vera’s to my left, Tahlia to my immediate right, then Livy and Nora.] Good times, good times. And I’m still not sure how Alix managed to contain herself sitting directly behind Anna in the second row at the end of the “Entrada” screening.
a;bsK;FB;KSDFGKSJBD PROOF THAT I DIDN’T DREAM THIS!!! IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED!!!!1
Quesiton: I just wanna know if you ever intend to have anything happen between Peter and Olivia? I was taken aback the way Olivia was taken aback the other day when you called to talk to her sister? I wanted to ask the writers and Anna and Josh what you have to say about that.
Roberto Orci: Well, we have a surprise for you… live tonight. *collective laugh*
Anna: Could you imagine? Like a little booth set up for us to go “Come and take a picture!” I think that’s a question for season 3, right? You gotta drag it out.
Jeff Pinker: These guys got that script and I got an email from Josh that said, “I don’t understand, why am I calling [Rachel] if I’m not sleeping with her?”
Josh: No, seriously! Does that strike anybody else as strange?
Jeff: And my answer was, you had a conversation, you guys were talking about a song and you figured out the answer.
Josh: Just to defend myself so I don’t seem like such a lecturous prick…
Jeff: It wasn’t you, it was Peter.
Josh: No, no, this question came from me. Josh doesn’t understand the scenario where he drops by Olivia’s house and she was out of the house and he was like “Hey, how is it going? What kind of music are you into?” Because he wanted to babysit? He doesn’t have enough already *points at John* Sorry. See, I think they had sex but we didn’t tell anybody. It’s how I’m making it make sense in my head.
John: I hope he has sex soon. It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?
Josh: I mean, if you think about it Peter is not really much of a catch. He’s a 30 year old man who lives in a one bedroon hotel room with his father, he’s unemployed.
John: But his father tries to help out! He brings a girl home and Walter says “You want the bed?”
Josh: Which is really awkward because it makes you feel like that happened before… “Oh, I’ll just be in the bathroom. I’ll turn on the water, I won’t hear anything.”

An Evening with Fringe - Basically John and Anna being adorable and perfect.
It’s Flor! Oh noes I haven’t written the report yet…
But I can answer this!
The moderator said Fringe Family names like Jasika, Lance, Josh, Blair, Seth, and Andre Royo. Most of the time their responses were the obvious niceties. They said lovely things about everyone. John kept calling Jasika “priceless”, he called Blair “a legend.” I had my Anna goggles on and was literally only looking at her the entire time so I can tell you who she really piped in to talk about; Lance, Seth, and Andre.
For Lance they gushed (maybe this is where Anna said they always try to make him laugh because he’s the Serious Guy) and Anna offered up the info that they share a birthday. For Seth she got really animated and excited that he’s coming back as a regular and John said what he loves most about Seth is that he’s so wide-eyed about the whole thing and wants to know everything (which he said was similar to himself, like he wants to know how everything works in terms of filmmaking it seemed? could have been in terms of just idk, gadgets on set). And Anna really, really loves Andre Royo! She gushed super hard about him, said he’s hilarious and talented and hopes he comes back. (This might be where she and John burst out laughing about possibly the birthing scene? They didn’t really elaborate but that’s what it seemed like. Clearly some shenanigans went down while they filmed that! Lololol!)
When the moderator said Josh’s name John answered with, “My son!” And everyone laughed. They sort of left it at that and then the moderator looked at Anna and was like, “You spent a lot of time with him this season…” And she laughed a lot and went, “I know!” And that was it.
THAT IS ALL THAT I CAN REMEMBER! DID I DO WELL???
Video from the Fringe panel at the Paley Center (NYC, 5/17/2011). Anna Torv and John Noble respond to an audience question re: the creative process behind playing William Bell. This was the last question of the night.
[Apologies for shakiness and quality. This business is difficult when you’re basking in the golden glow of Anna Torv’s presence in front of your face.]
Anna Torv and John Noble talking about something amazing at the Paley Live event in NY.
Not the greatest quality pic but it’s the best stealthy shot that I managed to take, and I do believe it caught Anna doing that mouth thing she does! You know the one. ;)
OMG it’s so weird seeing my tweet capped like this, lol! But this moment was so sweet! She said it correctly for us! :’) And John said the word “laboratory” trips him up. He has to get to the correct pronunciation by saying “Labrador” first which leads him in the right direction. (Very Walter-like behavior. ;))
MY HEART :’)

This was amazing for a number of reasons, but mainly:
1) That she just jumped in there and BUSTED IT OUT without hesitation! and 2) That she only realized halfway through what she was actually reading and so by the time she got to the end of the tweet she was in hysterics!!! ♥♥♥
