“I love it, dude,”Tyler Posey, 25, toldHollywoodLife.comat our sister site Variety’s Power of Young Hollywoodevent on Aug. 8. “Shelley [Hennig] is a great friend of mine, and I think she’s super talented. I’ve always loved the character of Malia, and the storyline, it makes sense. It’s really sweet. My favorite types relationships are started by best friends hanging out, you know, and being there for one another, and then it kind of organically happens. And that’s what happened there. So, I love it. I’m all for it.”

The foundation for Scott and Malia’s romance has been gradually building over the course of season 6. They’ve always been friends, but now there’s something more between them. Things will definitely take a romantic turn in the final 10 episodes. Shelley Hennig, 30, told us EXCLUSIVELY at SDCC that she thinks“Scalia fans will be happy” with how the relationship turns out.

But who was Tyler most excited to see? “Dude, it’s impossible to say,” he told us. “I loved all those guys so much. I was so craving to work with them as a Teen Wolfcast again. It’s impossible to say. Dylan [O’Brien] is my homie, but he was there not that long ago. Colton [Haynes] was probably away the longest, so it was great seeing Colton again with his platinum hair. What a badass.”

Tyler will be making his directorial debut on the Aug. 13 episode of Teen Wolf. “I’ve been waiting to do it for a really long time, and I loved it so much,” he dished. “So we’ll see what comes of it. I really want to keep doing it.” Teen Wolfairs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.

August 10, 2017 Ian Bohen interview for Vulkan

Actor Ian Bohen is known for roles in The Dark Knight Rises and Pearl Harbourand most recently, Teen Wolf. The series is wrapping up its final season so we took some time to talk to Ian about his experience on the show and what we can expect from his character Peter Hale as it comes to a close. Coming up, you can catch Ian in the modern adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women as Freddy Bhaer and Taylor Sheridan’s Wind River.

What has been your experience working with Jeff Davis on Teen Wolf?
It’s been wonderful to collaborate with Jeff throughout the course of the show.  He loves actors and combining the voice of the character with that of the performer.  We started speaking each other’s language, and ‘Peter Hale’ became less of a one-note bad guy and grew more into a relatable person – who just happens to be sociopathic.

Teen Wolf has spanned 6 seasons now, what has been your favourite moment from the series?
I think watching Dylan O. play the duality of Void Stiles/Stiles in season 3 was my favorite to watch.

In part 1 of the final series, you are reunited with Stiles and barely survive as you escape the abandoned train station. Is this the last we’ll see of Peter?
I think old Pete might still have some tricks up his sleeve as we finish up.

What will you miss most about this cast and crew?

I’ll miss everyone’s smiling faces that greet you each morning when you get to work.  We’ve become family and it’s hard when you don’t get to spend your days with your family anymore. 

You’ve also been cast in the upcoming modern adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. Will this adaption be taking many creative liberties, or will it stay pretty true to Louisa’s original words?
We’re very true to the original story and characters for sure, but being a contemporary retelling, we have to find ways to make the point of a 150-year-old story remain as relevant with the modern audience as it was for it’s original one.

For those unfamiliar with the story, tell us a bit about your character Freddy Bhaer?
Freddy is a catalyst for the main character to continue to overcome obstacles to achieve her goals.  He’s noble, honest and I think he’s someone the audience will be rooting for to succeed along with the protagonist.

How are you preparing for this role?
For me the preparation is centered around understanding how this character helps to service the overall story as the writer intended.  Staying within that guideline, I round out the person of Freddy with history, wants, motivation and behavioral aspects that I think are interesting.

What do you find most exciting about being part of a new adaption of such a classic story? Do you ever worry that fans won’t be as receptive because it “just isn’t the original” ?
The most exciting aspect is that I have the chance to step into a beloved literary character and have the opportunity to pull it off as intended.  Especially since so many respected actors have already done so, I’ve got my work cut out. And no, not at all.  This telling will attract younger audiences with its modern ‘tone’ and hopefully entice them to visit the novel and see where it all started.

You also have a thriller coming out this August called Wind River. Who is Evan and how does he play into the story?

Evan is working with the protagonist in the film to help figure out the mystery at the center of the story.  That’s the best I can offer without spilling the beans.

Why should viewers flock to the theatre to see this film?
The performances are nomination-worthy, as is the screenplay and the direction.  This is a brutally honest and visceral movie that most people don’t have the balls to make anymore.  It deserves to be seen in the theatre.

Who was the first actor or film you ever saw that made you want to try out this career path?
When I was a kid, I saw Tom Cruise in Top Gun and that was it for me.  I still think he’s pretty damn cool.

You’ve portrayed a lot of very different characters over your career thus far, do you have a favourite role that you always look back fondly on?
Coming off “Teen Wolf”, I think I’m especially fond of the villain, ‘Peter Hale’ and his penchant for violence and the occasional reluctant heroics.  He’s the most fun I’ve had so far.

Has there been a role you’ve had that you wish your character was given more development or that when you look back on it now think, “I could have changed this and it might’ve been better”?
I would love to have seen ‘Roy Hazelitt’ in “Mad Men” develop and participate in the world around him in that show.  I felt like we were just getting started

August 9, 2017 Dylan O’Brien Loved The ‘Learning Curve’ With ‘American Assa...

Based on the work of late scribeVince Flynn, American Assassin centers on Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a CIA black ops recruit who is fueled by a past tragedy. Brave and exacting to a fault, Mitch is determined to take out as many terrorists, and it’s up to Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton) to teach him how to efficiently channel that anger and complete the mission.

“Part of the arc of this character that I always loved was that kind of learning curve,” saidO’Brien. “He always thinks the revenge factor – the vengeance – will always be the answer and that will ultimately be what heals him . . . he has, at some point, learn about himself too – this thing he went through, it’s never going to leave him.”

August 5, 2017 Interview: Melissa Ponzio talks ‘Teen Wolf’ movie aspiration...

‘Teen Wolf’s’ Melissa Ponzio reveals her hopes for a follow-up feature film, the one scene she would have loved to shot, Mama McCall’s future and more!

Although the second half of Teen Wolf‘s final season has just begun, rumors of a spinoff or continuation have already started to make headlines. The future of the show is a question that continues to weigh heavily on the minds of the fans and cast alike, but if it were up to star Melissa Ponzio we’d be welcoming a feature film to the big screen within the next five years.

“I think so,” Ponzio quickly chimed in when asked about the chance of the show returning down the line. “One of the things that we like to talk is we’d really like to see a feature [film] on Teen Wolf maybe two or three from now. MTV is kind of known for that. If they’re going to do one on Jackass, they better do one on Teen Wolf – you know what I’m saying!”

While the future of the franchise remains to be seen, fans still have plenty of time to say goodbye to the characters they’ve come to know and love over the years through the second half of the show’s farewell season. Among the many things fans can look forward to is the continued exploration of Mama McCall’s budding romance with Chris Argent which Ponzio herself admits was something she hadn’t seen coming.

“I thought maybe it was just because we were in this parallel world that that was happening so when we came back and we’re still exploring after 6B [started], I was like oh this is real. This is a real thing. This isn’t happening because all this other cataclysmic stuff is happening. We’ll get to explore it more in 6B,” Ponzio revealed.

But was it fated that a member of the McCall and Argent families would somehow find their way together?

“It’s that thing of Romeo and Juliet, right?” Ponzio pondered. “It’s the two different houses and how they collide. It just kind of worked out that way. I don’t know if it was intentional and I like to say at the beginning of the show, it felt like a show about Romeo and Juliet with some werewolf sprinkled in, and now we just have more.”

As for the fate of our star-crossed lovers and the rest of the Beacon Hills parents?

“I thought I was going to die in the third season,” Ponzio began. “When Papa McCall was back, I literally pulled [co-star] Linden [Ashby] over to the side and I was like, ‘He is going to kill me. Every single character on this show only has one parent and now Scott has two parents in town, so one of us has to go and it’s going to be me. I’m next.’ The fact that I survived this long is amazing.”

While the show will most definitely bring with it closure to many of the series’ ongoing storylines, Ponzio admits that there was one scene that never came to fruition that she would have loved to have seen on the show.

“Other than a day off at the hospital,” Ponzio joked, “one of the things that I always said I thought would have been a great scene, was having all the parents together at a parent-teacher conference or something with the graduation. Just having a really nice, chunky scene with all the parents, because that happens.”

Be sure to check out our complete interview with Melissa Ponzio below for her reaction to the way in which creator Jeff Davis brought the Teen Wolf parents into the fold, finding Mama McCall’s purpose and her heartfelt goodbye to the fans!

Teen Wolf‘s final season is currently unfolding Sundays at 8/7c on MTV. 

Would you love to see Teen Wolf make its way to the big screen in the future and do you agree that a scene between all of the parents would have been incredible to see? Where are you hoping the writers take Mama McCall’s story this season?

August 5, 2017 Interview: Dylan Sprayberry reveals why fans won’t want to m...

‘Teen Wolf’s’ Dylan Sprayberry shares why 6B is a must-see for fans, more of the Liam/Theo dynamic and the one thing he would have loved to see Liam become!

There is no denying that the Teen Wolf 6A finale could very well have served as the show’s final episode thanks to the perfect way in which the writers wrote the episode. The Wild Hunt had been stopped, the town of Beacon Hills was safe and sound, and Scott’s pack were healthy, happy and optimistic about the next chapter in their lives.
Because of the way in which the writers brought 6A to a close, many fans questioned whether the show should have even continued beyond that point – but as star Dylan Sprayberry revealed during SDCC, the way in which the show is wrapped is one fans won’t want to miss.

“You have to see the show end,” Sprayberry noted. “We did a really good job wrapping up the whole show. The show’s been going on 100 episodes, you have to do a really good job of [finishing] it out. I talked with some other people about how we kind of went back to simpler times where we have hunters again which is really cool. That’s the perfect way to end the show, you know, you end it where you began it. You get to see some new characters relive what older characters have gone through which is cool. I mean, why not see what happens to everybody?”

Among the many things fans can look forward to in the final episodes of the season is a future exploration of the intriguing, comedic dynamic shared between Liam and Theo – which to even Sprayberry or the writers predicted would payoff as well as it did.

“I think the funny thing is that we wrote those scenes in the hospital when they were fighting and stuff and, we wrote some comedy, but we didn’t expect anyone to think it was really funny; we didn’t really know what was going to happen. I’m really good friends with Cody [Christian, who plays Theo], so we just had that relationship where we weren’t scared to have fun and just goof around and I think that really paid off,” Sprayberry shared of the now fan-favorite dynamic developed between Liam and Theo. “Then the writers were like, ‘Oh, they’re not bad at being funny,’ so they wrote us some more stuff for this season and we have some really good stuff that plays on that same dynamic as the scenes before that. So there is going to be a lot more stuff between Liam and Theo and it’s really good.”

As for the one thing Sprayberry would love loved to have seen before Liam’s story was wrapped?

“I think one thing that would have been cool, and this would require more seasons, but I would love to see Liam be the Alpha at some point. I don’t think it was his time where we ended the show so I [didn’t want] to see that then, but if we would have kept going with the show I would definitely have liked to see that,” Sprayberry admitted. “Other than that, I think they did a great job wrapping my character up as well as everyone else.”
