Fringe Star, Producer Ponder Olivia's Secret Power

at . Comments

On this week's episode of Fringe, the series left viewers with a video of young Olivia in a burnt-out room, following one of William Bell and Walter Bishop's Cortexiphan experiments.

Does this mean her ability is to start fires?

"I think it's more than that," star Anna Torv said in a recent interview. "I think for Olivia it's more than that, and I say that only because there's an episode coming up where we meet another subject, and I think it's more than that. I think what they got given or what they got taught is much bigger than just starting fire."

Meanwhile, executive producer Jeff Pinkner also offered more hints about Olivia's secret power.

"We saw the consequence. We saw that she started a fire at the end of the last episode, but I think it's a mistake to assume that that's her power. I think the truth is, it's probably a consequence of her ability."

Finally, Torv spoke on her upcoming scenes with guest star Leonard Nimoy, saying they're calm yet threatening.

"That's what's kind of cool about working on Fringe is everything seems kind of calm and lovely, but there's always something going on underneath. Where she meets him is the cooler question, but I'm not saying any more."

Darn it. Why not?!?

Fringe Quotes

Peter: Hello. Walter is that you? I can hear you breathing.
Janitor: Is this Peter Bishop?
Peter: Yes.
Janitor: I'm calling from NY. I know this is going to sound crazy but I just saw a woman disappear in front of my eyes.
Peter: Who is this?
Janitor: Her name was Olivia. She has a message for you; she's trapped in the other universe

You, Olivia, have the ability to bend things with your mind. That's what you're doing in this drawing, if you look at it the right way.

Walter
