'Grimm' Season 3: Bree Turner previews Rosalee's road to the altar with Monroe
"It's been very cool, the reception from the fans about the relationship," Turner tells Zap2it. "I think it's a combination of natural chemistry that just sometimes clicks. You never know. They hired me before I ever even met Silas. I could have come here in Season 1 and we could have had terrible chemistry. I could have been an a**hole.
"I honestly read it in TV Guide right before Comic-Con, an interview with Kouf and Greenwalt, that Monroe and Rosalee are going to be married in Season 3. I texted Silas and I was like, 'Really? Information I would have liked to have known!'" she recalls. "This has been in the [cards] for a while now, but in true 'Grimm' style, the journey has been wind[ing]. There's been so many elements congesting the way to the altar, which has made being able to act, getting behind the stories and the characters, has been very satisfying because there's always conflict. Complications are always fun, as an actress."
One storyline in particular that resonated beyond the world in "Grimm" was Monroe's anti-Fuchsbau parents.
"I think there have been many episodes this season that have touched on different issues in our society these days. That was a very clear one in that his parents are frankly bigots. To show that in such an aggressive way, I thought was a nice, bold move from the writers," Turner says. "It was a very hard line that was established in that episode. I thought that was very cool. To have the opportunity to go a little bit deeper when you're working with fantasy television, it's always satisfying."
