When Kevin Bacon spoke with a group of journalists/bloggers last week, one of the questions was about his new flame, Gwen (played by the lovely Zuleikha Robinson). Among the many things Bacon had to say about the new season, one of the most prominent was that Gwen is (finally) the right woman for him.
He also spoke about being drawn to darker material where the stakes for the characters he plays are higher, and whether various of the characters he’s dealt with are more dangerous. As usual, he was sharp, charming and fun to chat with.
