Now that Fringe has finished, I think it’s safe to say that Anna Torv and Joshua Jackson didn’t really get along.
Get along might not be the best choice of words actually. They are both professional actors and were paid to do a job together. They did that job extremely well on camera.
But, the impression I got from visiting many sets of Fringe whilst they were filming here was that the chemistry they had on screen wasn’t there off screen. Not once did I see them laugh and joke with one another.
Josh does have a relaxed, more laid back attitude when he’s not on camera, but Anna is shy and quiet.
Some people say “But how do you explain the interviews, pictures and so on where the cast are together where they smile and talk and so on?”
I say the same thing, they are paid professional actors and are in the public eye. They’re not going to actually say that they don’t get along or show that they don’t.
I like both actors by the way. This is not one of those “I hate Josh / I hate Anna” posts. They both are extremely good at what they do. But I often get asked if I ever saw them interact together off camera, and I always have to say no because of what I saw.
So there you have it, those are my thoughts on the subject. What are yours?
