Interview with Cory Montieth: The Man She Trusts
VPN: We're here with Cory Montieth who plays Henry Reynolds on the hit VPN Drama 'The Path Not Taken'. So Cory, you came into the Path mid first season. What was that like?
Cory: It was a bit weird because of the fact I came into a show that was already halfway done. The cast already had this great connection. I knew Nina, she was a close friend of mine and joining this project with her and meeting new people was great.
VPN: Now as for the character Henry, how can you relate to him?
Cory: Henry is such a great character, he's perfect and awesome. But sometimes he's too perfect. Brian has said he's going to go deep into Henry's past in the mid-season finale of the Second Season with flashback episode. And that is going to be hard for me because I had a past with drugs and bad history, but it's a great story Brian has and it really brings Henry and Jenny's relationship to a boiling point.
VPN: A flashback episode? What's that going to be like?
Cory: It's the mid-season finale and Brian says to both Nina and I that it's going to be focused on us because of the events that have been happening with Christy, and those scene with Kate are so much fun because you kinda get hints of Henry's 'dark days' and I get to work with this great actress. But as for the flashbacks, they'll be done a little better then the flashback episode from season one with Jenny's father.
VPN: Going into Season Two, what was it like? After Season One, Brian was afraid that he wouldn't come back. The Path is is first successful show on the VPN to actually reach a season finale and also get a second season. How did you feel coming in this season.
Cory: It was crazy! When we shot the last scene of season one, Brian said this could be our last day. But when I got the call that we were coming back I got excited! He told me last season his plans for Henry and Jenny and I was super excited for the show to develop. Jack Malone even said that it feels like a 'new show' and it really is! The writing has changed a lot, his stories are planned out and are executed beautifully to me.
VPN: If you could do one thing on The Path, what would it be?
Cory: I kinda want to play the drums. But I did sing in the Premiere episode. I don't know if it will make the final cut but I did sing. I sang 'Hello I love you' to Jenny at the Rosemount Talent Night.
VPN: Do you have any other juicy spoilers for the second season? It seems very great so far.
Cory: The second part of the season is gonna be really good. Part of it is the "The Father Chapter" where we learn who Jenny's real father is which lasts from the seventh episode to the tenth episode. The eleventh and twelfth episode are the "The Henry and Jenny Chapter" which continues on into the next season from what Brian tells me. The first six episodes are called the "The Life Chapter". It's gonna be good.
VPN: Thank you for stopping by Cory, we can't wait for the Season Premiere this fall.
