It’s been more than three months since FRINGE finished its (often wild) journey, but even with the conclusion in place, there is still more to say about what ultimately wasn’t aired.

In honor of the fifth season being released on DVD/Blu-ray on Tuesday, May 7th, I asked FRINGE star Jasika Nicole (Astrid) to share her memories of a scene she shot that fans never saw. And, as it turns out, Astrid originally had a bigger sequence in the series finale Observer fight as the team struggled to guarantee that Michael would make it to the future to fulfill that ultimate plan

SCANDAL: FRINGE’s Jasika Nicole on Playing Kim, Fandom Response, and the Possibility of Returning

For five seasons, Jasika Nicole was woefully underrated (and underused) on FRINGE, so when she appeared on SCANDAL last week, television viewers got to see a whole new side to her: Nicole’s character, Kim, was revealed via flashbacks to be Huck’s wife…and the mother of their son. Unfortunately for Huck, his bosses didn’t approve of his family life, so they kept him in isolation until he was brainwashed into forgetting he had a family.

But with Huck suffering a nervous breakdown (and repeatedly murmuring the time when he last saw his wife and son), it sure seems like it would make sense for Kim to appear in the present day. To find out if that’s on the horizon, I spoke with Nicole about her experience on SCANDAL, passionate fandoms, and more…

SCANDAL has continued its fantastic guest star casting — ABC has confirmed that former FRINGE star Jasika Nicole will guest star on an upcoming episode of the series.

While Nicole’s role is being kept massively under wraps, it’s been dubbed “very surprising.”

It’s a little surreal, but FRINGE comes to an end tonight.

FRINGE stars John Noble (Walter), Anna Torv (Olivia), Joshua Jackson (Peter), and Jasika Nicole (Astrid) have been the constant presences on the show, so when I spoke with the actors at the 100th episode/series finale, I was curious what lessons they had learned from playing those characters.

FRINGE: The Cast Talks About their Reaction to Reading ‘End of the Series’ in the Finale Script. Plus, J.H. Wyman on Reaching the End

The people behind FRINGE got a rare television gift — they got to go into the final season knowing it was the end.

And while all year was leading up this being it, being aware the end was coming and actually seeing the words “end of series” on a script are two entirely different matters.

I spoke with FRINGE stars John Noble (Walter), Joshua Jackson (Peter), Jasika Nicole (Astrid), and Lance Reddick (Broyles) about reading those series-ending words, plus showrunner J.H. Wyman about reaching the end…

It’s no secret FRINGE’s Astrid hasn’t had much to do so far in the show’s final season, but thankfully, things are about to change.

“She ends up being really pivotal to piecing this whole puzzle together,” FRINGE star Jasika Nicole (Astrid) teased about the role her character will play in the final batch of episodes. I mean, that’s only fitting, right?

Take a look at what else Nicole had to tease…
