Wynonna Earp’s Tim Rozon teased what fans can expect from Doc Holliday in the show’s final six episodes and talked about his new series, The Surrealtor.
For four seasons, Tim Rozon has played the legendary Doc Holliday on Syfy’s Wynonna Earp. Holliday may be straight out of American history, but Rozon has delivered her own indelible interpretation of the character that fans love no matter what questionable activities she takes on. That will surely remain true in the second half of the fourth and final season, where Doc is still grappling with his feelings for Wynonna after she crossed a line that he may not be able to forgive her for.
Before Wynonna, Doc, and company walk into the sunset, CBR joined a roundtable interview to speak with Rozon about the series finale. Rozon talked about what fans can expect from the remaining six episodes of Wynonna Earp, Doc’s character arc throughout the show and his upcoming new series, The surrealist.
Rozon teased where Doc Holliday is going in the series’ latest batch of episodes and expressed gratitude for where his character ends at the end of the show. “I loved the ending, I was very proud of it,” said Rozón. “I think in many ways [Doc] I had to leave the past behind to have a future, and I thought it was really beautiful. I felt like he finally let me go. And I think it’s already starting where we are in the season, but in the end you’ll see the full release of just letting go. Sometimes you have to let old ways die, and I think he did. I love it, I thought it was beautiful. Most importantly, I think the Earpers are going to love the ending. And that’s what makes me happy the most. “
Rozon also hinted at what Doc’s newfound freedom from the past could mean for his relationship with Wynonna. “For Doc, he has decided that he let him go, but that doesn’t mean that Wynonna is ready to let him go,” explained Rozon. “And at the same time that she had the real burden of being the one who had to fight the curse, she was the only one who could save the day at the end of the day. You can pretend that everyone else can, but at the end of the day , always fell on Wynonna, she always had that burden. […] But I think about [Doc] now he is realizing that the curse is gone. You know, “Why are we fighting more? Maybe it’s to let go, we can finally have a future if we let go of this past.” Doc held onto his past for so long that when he finally let it go, it was a relief to him that he only wanted the same for Wynonna. I don’t know who will do it at the end of the season. It’s easier for Doc to do it somehow, he doesn’t carry the burden of the curse where she does. But I don’t think they can be together if she doesn’t let him go either. And I hope it does. “
However, while Rozon was pleased with the way Doc’s character ended, that doesn’t mean playing him was always easy. Throughout the show, Doc made some tough decisions that Rozon confessed was hard for him to bring to life. “We are very fortunate that [Wynonna Earp creator and showrunner] Emily [Andras] he is very accessible and always asks […] Where would you like the character to go? I never reply. I’m not that type of man, “explained Rozón.” I am confident in what you are going to do. At the end of the day, I’m there to do my job, which is trying to say [her] fashion character [she] I wrote it in the best possible way. And there have been some tough times for me in all four seasons, the vampire stuff and Doc has done some bad things that were tough for me. […] But then you know that the way it all came together in the end is why I knew, which is why I trusted from day one because I knew I was in good hands. He knew the character was in good hands.
“I didn’t realize how much it sometimes hurts to play a character when a character does something so contrary to what you would do as a person. But you have to let it go. It’s not you, you’re that character. And that character, it’s not you. “
Rozon and the whole Wynonna Earp The team has been on an especially emotional rollercoaster during season 4. Despite the season 4 renewal, it was unclear if the show would return due to funding issues. And although the season was delayed, fans cheered when the first half of season four finally premiered. Unfortunately, it was recently announced before the second half of season four that the upcoming episodes will be the last of the show. Rozon shared what that journey was like to go through as a cast member. “It’s like all the emotions you can imagine in one,” Rozón revealed. “It took us two years to shoot season 4, to finally finish it. I don’t know what happened between season 3 and 4, I don’t know all the details of why we almost lost the show, the IDW stuff. I never got into that. I just know that the Earpers fought and came together in a way that was so inspiring that I will never forget in my entire life. And then we finally came back, and I remember being so excited and it was amazing. […] Y [I was] very grateful to return to these characters that we almost lost.
“Then this global pandemic broke out. […] And I said, ‘Oh man, are we ever gonna break up?’ And then we were, “Rozon continued.” We were the first people to return, we were the first production to return in Canada during COVID, in terms of series. I remember being so happy and so lucky and aware of the responsibility we had to the Earpers. But I also knew when we filmed it that it could be like this. Just because of the time it took to finally get there and the way the story was and the way it was told so beautifully and elegantly, I had this feeling like, ‘Okay, you have to be ready to say goodbye to this one. guy, because it’s going to be difficult. ‘
Fortunately, Rozon will not be absent from our screens for long. He’s already landed his next role in another Syfy series called The surrealist. “I finished season 4 of Wynonna Earp a friday and i started [The Surrealtor] Monday. Is incredible. My character is the character of Luke Roman in the Roman Agency and we are an agency, and we take houses that no one else can deal with, investigating and investigating and fixing the things that happen at night. It is super fun. I met up with Sarah Levy from Schitt’s Creek, so she was amazing. The rest of the supporting cast is absolutely incredible. And it was super fun. And, look, I mean it’s hard to say goodbye to the character, but I was lucky enough to jump into another awesome one. So in that sense I feel very lucky and lucky. I’m excited. It should come out in the summer. “
“You know what the Earpers created is more powerful and important than a television show we talked about,” added Rozon. “We told a beautiful story, don’t get me wrong, and it touched a lot of people, but the way that community touched people and brought people together is just, it’s inspiring. It’s magical.”
