François Arnaud stars in a new feature for Interview magazine. Easton & Rosso photograph Arnaud with help in the style department by Joshua Liebman. Connecting with Interview, Arnaud talks about his show, Midnight, Texas. Discussing his role, Arnaud shares, “I play a medium actually. There’s a bit of a difference. He has psychic powers, but mediums talk to the dead. They have access to spirits in the other world. But he won’t read you or tell you your future.”
Arnaud discusses his research going into the role. He recalls, “I met a few psychics in Albuquerque, but my favorite one was Psychic Ana. I was too scared to have her give me a reading. I’m a completely skeptical atheist—I don’t believe in the supernatural—and yet, I don’t really want it to get too close to me. So it was a fun role because I had to see it from a completely different perspective.”
The 32-year-old Canadian actor continues, “I tried to really give Ana the benefit of the doubt, and I don’t know if I believe that she sees what she sees or reads what she reads, but I wholeheartedly believe that she believes it, and that she’s not performing a scam voluntarily. My point of view is that she might just be a hyper-intuitive person who connects with people.” Read more on InterviewMagazine.com.
