Dom Purcell Talks About Season 4
“If you’ve seen that movie Ronin, it’s kind of like that,” says Dominic as he describe Season 4. “We’re being forced by the government to work for them, and if we don’t work for them, they’re going to send us to jail, back to prison. They promised the troupe, the gang, that if we get the stuff done, we’ll be given our freedom, so depending on how long they want the show to last, we won’t be having our freedom for a very long time.”
Although Lincoln is always about the action, Dominic is actually hoping for some more emotional moments. “At some point, I’d like to see a bit more exploration between him and his brother,” Dominic says. “I’d like to see that and at some point, him get involved romantically. Even though he is involved romantically, it would just be nice to see more of Lincoln’s sensitive kind of side. Right now he’s pretty much a bull at the gate.” Even with Sofia at his side, Dominic says that he gets very little opportunity to explore that plot line.
And it seems that Lincoln is not going to be getting any action from the ladies this season either. “We have very little opportunity to explore that,” Dominic continues. “I wish, but I don’t think there’s enough time for Lincoln at least. I mean, there doesn’t seem enough time for romance for any one of the guys to be perfectly honest. We’re always doing something, always running. It’s a very high paced action genre kind of vibe.”
So how does Lincoln get the upper hand on Susan B. this season? “Look, Linc’s the spark of the show and he’s just a fighter. He’s the guy that brings the grunt, that male testosterone element to the show. Linc’s going to do what he keeps doing. He’s a angry dude, and he’s just trying to get back to his kid and trying to just start a new relationship with Sophia, so he’s tired of this bullsh*t that people keep drawing him back to.”
And after this season? Dominic says that he can see the show going on indefinitely. “The writers keep coming up with these amazing ideas, and storylines, and there’s so much investment and so much at the Fox Network. This is one of their big shows, and especially around the world. It’s one of the biggest shows in the world, so it’s very important for them to keep this thing rolling, so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if it just keeps going.”
