As Lincoln Lee on the Fox series FRINGE (airing Friday nights on Fox), Seth Gabel has played four different iterations of his Lincoln Lee character both Over There, Over Here and now this season, two completely different Lincolns after the timeline was reset due to Peter (Joshua Jackson) sacrificing himself during the Season 3 finale.

The new Lincoln this year found him unaware of the Fringe division as he was brought into the fold of this top secret division where he began to have feelings for Olivia (Anna Torv). Things have become more complicated now that Peter has come back into the picture.

While at Wondercon 2012, Gabel did the press rounds to discuss his fan favorite role, the uncertainty of Season 5 and what to expect during the rest of Season 4.

On the potential that this may be the last season of FRINGE …
“It sucks that it’s a possibility of it being the end,” says Gabel. “We all hate it. You look at the numbers and you can only imagine what Fox is feeling. There is a loyal fan base and it doesn’t drop below a certain number no matter what. People show up and watch it. You see how [the numbers] change when people watch it on DVR. People are sophisticated in how they watch the show and they don’t watch it live. This show appeals to people who are technology savvy and ahead of the curve. The problem is, the network doesn’t know how to monetize it yet.”

On being recognized for being on the show …
“I’ve been a part of other shows before, but not the level of response with this,” says Gabel. “Every day someone recognizes me from the show which is incredible. For a show with talk of cancellation, people are watching because they’re recognizing me walking down the street. Everyone on the show has experiences of fans being extremely jovial and supportive and they really want to meet you and hear more about the show from the inside. It touches people deeply.”

On the next eight episodes …
“The remaining eight episodes will air completely uninterrupted and we’re building up to this conflict with David Robert Jones [Jared Harris] and the two universes team up to fight this common enemy that continues to develop,” says Gabel. “There’s a love triangle with Peter, Lincoln and Olivia. Then you add Faux-liva and alt-Lincoln to the mix and they’re all vying for their different loves and also fighting to save each of their universes. There’s a lot of interaction and spending time in the alternate universes. There’s also going to be an episode where the two Lincoln’s have a conversation and talk about how we became different people. ‘I am who I am, and you are who you are, but something happened in the past that caused us to be different. What is it that makes us different?’”

On playing opposite himself …
“It’s pretty physical and you have different costumes,” says Gabel. “The feel of being in a suit and having a gun holstered to your leg is very different. The big part for me was seeing how spiked my hair was.”

On keeping track of the various versions of himself and the new timelines …
“Once we did the timeline reboot, it became about how big is the Butterfly Effect was,” explains Gabel. “Fortunately for me, there hasn’t been too much jumping back and forth. Alt. Lincoln and Bolivia — I haven’t seen them for awhile, so I’ve just been filling in the blanks and what have they been up to in trying to capture Jones. It’s not too difficult to keep track of and everyone is extremely supportive of letting you know what’s going on so you can create it together.”

On shooting in Vancouver …
“So many sci-fi shows have been shot there like THE X-FILES,” says Gabel. “It has that aura and sense of wonder. It’s grey and it rains so much there that there’s something interesting about it. It’s like BLADE RUNNER – it’s a dark world where things are not as they should be and there’s something unnatural about it.”

  1. What love triangle? We have two people (Peter & Olivia) that are deeply in love with each other. What’s the rule of Lincoln in this relationship? The answer is nothing. To be honest his character in this show is completely useless.

    • disagree.. It’s a wonderful character, I think Fringe needed something new, just to get out a little bit of the same olivia-peter-walter. The problem is that they don’t build alt!lincoln the way the character deserve, and so they make the s*** of putting our!lincoln between olivia ans peter… It’s a great character and actor wasted.

  3. New producer Guillermo Del Toro needs to Cast either Seth Gabel or Clay Akien for the New Bruce Banner in New Hulk TV Series.

  4. If Marvel Entertainment president Jeph Leob and producer Guillermo Del Toro decided to cast Seth Gabel as The New Dr.Bruce Banner in the New Hulk TV Series 2012 in the Fall it will more exciting with Seth Gabel. Because he’s like the old new cast like his early years in his mid 20s.
