Oct. 14--The cast and producers of "Sleepy Hollow" took a break from filming their hit Fox series in Wilmington on Sunday to appear on a Q&A panel at New York Comic Con.
Series stars Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Katia Winter and Orlando Jones, as well as executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kaden and Len Wiseman, were among those who took part in the panel, which fielded questions from fans about the show, the production and what's to come.
Mison, who plays Ichabod Crane on the series, joked around with the audience before dispensing some insightful thoughts about his time-traveling character's role in the 21st century.
"The moment Ichabod becomes 100 percent comfortable in the present world, then we've lost something," Mison said, according to the show's official Twitter account, which tweeted quotes from the panel Sunday.
Beharie, who plays Crane's partner Abbie Mills, commented on what it has been like to work on the spooky series, and in particular, when she acted opposite the mouthless Sandman creature that appeared in episode three.
"That day, I was a little freaked out about what I was doing," said Beharie, adding that she was ill on set that day, which only added to her frightened performance.
"Kurtzman, who co-created the show, told fans that "key to the world is grounding the show in an authentic reality" but still making sure that it has a real sense of humor." Beharie added that the show's blending of genres "is so wrong that it's right."
The audience was shown eight minutes of footage from future episodes during the panel, including a clip from the Nov. 4 episode, which featured Winter's character, Katrina, talking about the "Sin Eater," an upcoming character to be played by "Fringe" fan favorite John Noble.
As for the show's second season, set to premiere in fall 2014, Kurtzman revealed that the producers have talked about what next year will look like and have even mentioned their plans to Mison, who said what he was told made his hair "stand on end."
And while the entire cast and crew are focused on making sure the first season is great, Kurtzman did reveal one tiny piece of information for what's to come.
"There is set-up (happening on the show) now that becomes substance for next year."
"Sleepy Hollow" airs 9 p.m. Mondays on Fox. Because of upcoming baseball pre-emptions, the show will not air new episodes Oct. 21 and 28. It will return Nov. 4.
