Jasika Nicole and Blair Brown talk to Alan Sepinwall at the San Diego Comic Con

Earlier this week, I started rolling out the video interviews I did with the "Fringecast at Comic-Con, starting with Joshua Jackson. A few logistical delays have pushed the remaining interviews back to the weekend, but it's time to resume the batch with two members of the show's supporting cast: Jasika Nicole and Blair Brown.

As with nearly everyone in the cast, we got to talking about how both the shows and their characters evolved over time, especially since Astrid and Nina were so far in the background in the show's early days. Work is work, but how does someone like Nicole keep herself interested when she's mainly being asked to hand lab equipment to Walter and offer the occasional bit of exposition?

We also talked about Nicole getting perhaps the biggest alt-universe challenge out of anyone in the cast with the autistic alt-Astrid, and the personal connection she has to that character, and Brown in turn offered some theories on who - or what - alt-Nina might be.

As with most of these Comic-Con video interviews, it's quick, but I hope you enjoy.
