Thanks to Dymond1207 for sending this in.
Brendan was spotted in the canadian tv guide in the “up close” colum. Thought you might want to know.
TV GUIDE: Roswell fans really helped ensure that your show got renewed for
another season. What was the feeling about that among your castmates?
BRENDAN: We were all very aware of it and certainly appreciative and
flattered. It’s the sci-fi fans. Apparently we don’t have enough fans, but
the ones we ho have, they’re crazy, man. They’re right in there and part of
TVG: WB shows like Angel, Buffy, and Dawsons Creek lend themselves to pockets
of hardcore fans. Would Roswell work on another network?
BRENDAN: Yes, but there are benefits on both sides. on the WB, we’ve been
grouped with Buffy and Angel and the young stars, so that’s probably been

TVG: Any major changes in store for season 2?
BRENDAN: Well, we found out that our show skews a lot older then we thought;
the average age of our viewer is 27. So late last season, we started to focus
less on relationships stuff and put more emphasis on sci-fi and action plots.
TVG: Have you been to any sci-fi conventions yet?
BRENDAN: No, we haven’t. But I’m a big collector of Spider-Man stuff. I go to
toy stores and comic book shops and they have action figures for Angel and
Buffy and X-Files. I’m waiting for my action figure to come out but I don’t
think Roswell merits action figures.
TVG: Spider-Man, eh? Did you try out for the new live-action movie?
BRENDAN: I went in and read for it but I’m probly not the best choice. Tobey
McGuire [Pleasantville] is an interesting choice, though. I can’t wait.
