As we all know Drew Fuller played Chris from the future on Charmed. Happy to let you now that Drew took time to answer some questions for our fan site about his role in Charmed + more. Big thank you to Drew once again for taking time to do this. Read interview we did with him below:
CharmedDaily: How would you describe your character from Charmed in couple words? Drew Fuller:Driven, conflicted, selfless and worried. In hindsight I wish he had more fun, but saving the world and his family was more important I guess.
CharmedDaily: Of all episodes you filmed what was your favorite or hardest one to film?
Drew Fuller:Favorite, selfishly, was Chris-Crossed. It was cool to get some insight on who Chris was
CharmedDaily: Are you still in contact with someone from Charmed for example Wes Ramsey?
Drew Fuller:Sometimes. Whenever any of us run into one another it’s all smiles and catch ups but everyone is doing their own thing. Families, travel etc.
CharmedDaily: What are your thoughts on Charmed Convention in Paris 2014, we know you are going to be there?
Drew Fuller: I’m excited. I love Paris and I’m looking forward to connecting with all the fans that are so passionate about the show.
CharmedDaily: We love seeing you in Charmed and Army Wives but what’s the TV show you love watching on TV right now?
Drew Fuller: Homeland, GOT, Mad Men, Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, The Returned, SOA ,FNL ,Luther Sherlock, Downton The Wire..
can we just sob together about Chris and Piper. i feel like it could benefit us both.
Yes, yes we can. because you know, PIPER IS SO IMPORTANT FOR CHRIS, like, he loves her so, so much, and can you even imagine how much it must have hurt, to see this woman, every day, who wore the face of his mother, spoke like her, acted like her in almost every way, except she didn’t love him? She didn’t recognize him?
I mean, he certainly had prepared for that in the future, but how hard the first few weeks must have been? how hard was it when she yelled at him, when she chose wyatt and leo over and over (even though rationally he knew why she did that?) how long did he take for him to completely stopped seeing his mother in Piper? When did the little boy in him stopped looking for a warm smile or look, when did he accept that yes, it was Piper, but it was not his mother, not yet - he didn’t have her back, even if it would have been so great.
AND THEN SHE LEARNT THE TRUTH and fuck, he had tried so hard to keep them separate but then SHE WAS FINALLY HIS MOTHER, or at least she tried her best, and he didn’t want to fall for someone he knew he wouldn’t be able to see forever, but he did anyway when he finally called her “mom” and after that, he was so much like a boy with her, it was so cute and touching and perfect.
AND THEN HE HAD TO LEAVE. Oh my god, HE HAD TO LEAVE HER BEHIND BECAUSE HE HAD TO COME BACK TO THE FUTURE and HE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IF SHE WAS GOING TO BE THERE OR SHE WAS STILL GOING TO BE DEAD.
but it’s his chance to properly say goodbye to her.
AND THEN HE DIES AND IT SUCKS.
… I got a bit carried away, maybe. sorry? It’s always so great to talk to you about Chris :D even though his whole life is just a big ball of painful stuff (in the dark future, obviously).
