Louis Hunter Knew Nick Would Be Written Off The Secret Circle!
It’s always awkward when a character gets killed off a show. Did the actor piss everyone off and get fired? Did he have an awkward hook up with the leading lady and get iced out? Nope, not in Louis Hunter’s case!
“I knew from the start, from the get-go, that Nick would be written off,” Louis tells Zap2it. “I didn't know exactly which episode, but I did know that it was part of the master plan that at some point in the first season, someone was going to go, and that someone would be me. So that wasn't a shock, getting that script.”
The silver lining to Nick’s death is that Louis got a chance to flesh out his character. “We got to showcase a strong arc in that by the end of it,” Louis says. “He was willing to give himself over to the Grim Reaper to save his love interest. All he was thinking about was saving the girl who he'd fallen in love with. I think it's a nice way of saying goodbye to Nick....”
Well, minus that whole drowning thing, right?
“It was really fun to film, actually!” Nick admits. “It was a rush. I mean, half an hour later when I was dry again, I thought, 'Man, that was fun,' but during the scene, I guess you could say it was a little bit nerve-wracking. It was a mix between acting and real fear. I talked to Gale beforehand and I said, 'Listen, don't hold back. Really go for it.' You don't have to act that much when you're being shoved underwater. I actually felt like I was running out of air, so that was all real. I hope it looks real.”
Real enough that hoards of fans are crying in the middle of their work day? Yes. Now let’s get down to business: Is it possible Nick will rise from the grave and wander back into our lives?
“Absolutely,” Nick says. “I'd be interested. I think that the show being what it is, it could be really organic, and I really loved working with every single person that I worked with up in Vancouver, so if I got the chance to be on the show again, I wouldn't hesitate at all.”
