Mason Ashford is the final word good man, and he’s dealing with some severe romantic woes in the previous few episodes of Vampire Academy season 1. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Andrew Liner forward of the October 27 finale about Mason’s future with Rose, that showdown with Dimitri, and extra. So, what’s the cope with the Mason-Rose-Dimitri love triangle?
“I believe that love can ebb and stream in a bunch of various methods. Perhaps at one level, she did love him in the way in which that he loves her, however I believe that love can develop into its personal factor,” Andrew mentioned about Rose’s emotions for Mason. “If you genuinely love somebody, it received’t ever go away. It should simply morph into one thing else. I believe that’s an essential factor to have a look at. I believe they’re associates and that love won’t ever die. However I believe as a result of Dimitri is within the image, I believe that’s the love that we’ll need to be for proper now. I believe Mason’s okay with that, or he can be ultimately.”
Meredith pleaded with Mason to finish issues with Rose due to Rose’s emotions for Dimitri. Meredith occasion instructed Mason that Rose didn’t love him. Andrew weighed in on whether or not or not he thinks Mason finally believes Meredith.
“It’s truly attention-grabbing. We had a really comparable scene in [episode] 8 that received minimize with me and Meredith, and it was type of a precursor to the scene in 9,” Andrew defined. “I do agree with them for chopping it, despite the fact that I cherished the scene in it. We’re each crying in it, and it’s simply tremendous emotional. However I don’t assume it’s mandatory as a result of I really feel like you possibly can type of see that Mason is aware of and he has recognized eternally. It’s simply that fixed denial and that fixed I don’t wish to imagine it, so I’m not going to even give it an opportunity. I believe he’s positively conscious. He simply is making an attempt to make excuses for himself. But it surely’s a difficult place to be in as a result of, on the similar time, Rose isn’t giving him a flat-out reply. It’s tough and simply heartbreaking.”
Mason and Dimitri did have a confrontation about Rose, and it ended with Mason delivering a giant “f**ok you” to Dimitri’s face. “That scene was actually tough for Kieron [Moore] and me as a result of it was the primary time that we actually spoke to one another. We’ve had these glances at each other the complete season, after which this was our first time talking. I believe it was for probably the most half all respect. The subtext of that ‘f**ok you, Dimitri” was extra like, ‘I’m harm as a result of she picked you.’ I don’t assume it’s extra outwardly like, ‘F**ok you, Dimitri. You’re a chunk of sh*t.’ I believe it’s extra inward and extra simply situational as a result of I don’t assume Mason has something towards Dimitri apart from the truth that he and Rose are clearly in love with each other. That was a difficult scene. Marguerite [MacIntyre] and I had been speaking about it loads. Why does he say “f**ok you?” I believe that we went forwards and backwards with it loads, however I believe we landed on the subtext simply being like that is what heartbroken is.”
However how far more can Mason take? “I imply, I’m fed up with it at this level. Andrew Liner is,” the actor quipped. “No, I don’t know. I believe numerous us have been there, so whenever you’re that tied up in somebody you’re not likely seeing straight. And you then open your eyes and it’s like, oh, it’s been two years of my life. What’s going on? I wish to say he’s fed up, however I don’t know.”
He added, “I believe you’ll see in episode 10 if he’s fed up or not. I believe that’ll be a really huge level as a result of I really feel a minimum of in my previous relationships I fought for them, I fought for them, I fought for them till a sure level the place I do my final huge I’m preventing for you. If it’s not obtained then I’m carried out. I’ll offer you every part and that’s my very last thing, after which I’m carried out. I believe Mason may be getting that time sooner or later.”
Followers of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy novels know all too nicely about Mason’s destiny. Nonetheless, showrunner Julie Plec revealed at NYCC that the present will method Mason’s demise otherwise than within the ebook.
When requested if Mason survives the season, Andrew replied, “I don’t know. You’ll need to see episode 10. I believe folks should make up their minds if he makes by means of. Episode 10 is a cliffhanger, so we’ll see. I’d like to do a season 2. We’ll see if that’s permitted, however sh*t goes down in episode 10.”
If Mason does stay to see season 2, Andrew desires to see much less of “unhappy boy Mason.” He instructed HollywoodLife, “I’d prefer to discover why was prime of the leaderboard, why he is without doubt one of the most promising novices. I don’t wish to see him hung up on, like Meredith mentioned, a woman who doesn’t love him. There’s loads to discover. I’d prefer to discover numerous man-on-man friendships. That’s one thing we don’t actually get an excessive amount of of. We get some moments between Mason and Christian and Dimitri and Christian. There’s numerous potential for exploring these several types of relationships, however I wish to see extra of the more durable, much less emotional components of Mason.”
