FRINGE: Kirk Acevedo On Season 4 – Will Charlie Return?

In a recent interview, Kirk Acevedo issued an update on his chances of appearing in Fringe Season 4, and what he wants to see from his character should he get the chance to continue ‘Charlie’s’ arc.

Is there any truth to the rumor that you’ll be reprising your role as Agent Charlie Francis on Fringe?

Yes. It all depends on my schedule. The only good thing is that I’m going to be in Los Angeles filming Prime Suspect, so it’s closer to Vancouver [where Fringe shoots]. I’ve got no problem [returning] if my schedule allows it.

But they do want you back, right?

Yeah. I spoke to the show runners. They do! I know they want me for a few episodes.

If Charlie does return, what would you like to see happen to him?

I want him to be kooky — the wilder the better for me personally. I’d rather play something really wacky.

Two years ago, you were upset about being let go from the show. How do you feel about it now?

Obviously in the heat of the moment you take it personally, but it’s not personal. I tell people all of the time that they would make any show in this business — whether it’s Black, White, Hispanic, Jewish, Colombian, Dominican — whatever. They’ll make it if it sells. It’s a business. It’s not personal. So I can’t take it personally if people made artistic decisions on the show. My ego took it personal — that’s the difference.

    You forgot what Kirk said about how much he loves to work with Anna Torv.

    For me the relationship between Olivia and Charlie could have been the heart of Fringe or at least equal to that of the father/son one. It is a shame that the writers did not give Olivia someone to fall back on, and to built a relationship with. Anna and Kirk had and have great chemistry.
