Isaac Hayes ain’t the only Duke who’s A-Number-One. Eric
Balfour—who plays Duke Crocker on the Syfy series inspired by Stephen King’s
THE COLORADO KID—recently spoke a little about HAVEN’s sophomore year.
Balfour talked with Collider about
HAVEN, whose second season starts airing on Syfy July 15. “One of the most fun things that people are going to get to
see in season two with Duke is the emergence of a love interest, in several
different amalgamations,” Balfour reveals “I’m excited about that, and getting
to see Duke not quite as confident as always. There’s a character who comes in
this season that really pushes Duke’s buttons, and that’s not something you got
to see a lot of last year.
“Mostly, what we’re excited about is just improving on what
we did last year. We learned a lot from season one. It’s always a balance
between what the network and the studio requires, and what we want to do
creatively, and everyone has very valid points for what they need, but every
season that you do something, you learn a little more about it. Although each
season is unique and there’s always a different dynamic to the crew, the
writing room and the actors, you still learn a lot from what you’ve already
done. You learn what works and what doesn’t, and you can carry that into the
“That’s the thing I’m hopeful for, for this season, but you
never know. I’m only an actor on this show, so there’s only so much influence I
can have. I try to offer my advice or insight, if they’re open to it, but at
the end of the day, you can only say so much. I’m just hopeful that the second
season improves on what we did in the first season, but you never really know
until it’s all said and done, and on the screen. I really do love the
character. I love the way that the writers write him, and the freedom that they
give me to bring myself to the character. He’s a ton of fun to play.”
