What is the “A Discovery of Witches” series about?
A Discovery of Witches is a supernatural romance novel by British author Deborah Harkness. It was published in 2011 and has since become an international bestseller with more than two million copies sold worldwide. A Discovery of Witches Season three will pick up where season two left off, with Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer) and Matthew de Clermont (Matthew Goode) struggling to come to terms with the revelation that their son, Nathan, is destined for great things — or perhaps even greater evils.
Palmer talked at length with Collider about her satisfaction with how the final season turned out, what it was like wrapping the series, shooting the dance scene at the end of the last episode, pulling one last prank, and how the villains finally got what they deserved. She also spoke about what she hopes to accomplish next in her career.
Palmer talked about the ending
Palmer said the way the season turned out really captured what we needed. I think Deb Harkness did an excellent job of walking us through everything and making sure that everything made sense, even if it sometimes felt like she was leading from behind-the-scenes all along!
When I knew that everything had been run past her, and if there was something my team needed to include in the final product- Deb would’ve put up her hand. So for safety’s sake (because who knows what can happen?), we felt really good about it!
Palmer talks about the series wrap up
The last day on set for this movie was really anti-climactic, to be honest, the last official day on set was when Sarah kills Knox Palmer said. We were at the hanger, and it was freezing cold. I’ve never felt anything like that before in my entire life.
When they said it was time to wrap up, everyone started clapping and hugging because we knew that most of our crew would be leaving soon. Then, we had a small little breakout crew for one extra day. The following week with just Matthew [Goode] and a couple of other people. The wrap-up started with a goodbye and everyone had some drinks. Then they took photos, said their goodbyes again to old friends for three years we’ve known each other in this crew member’s life – it was really emotional!
The very last thing I filmed was meeting my friend in front of the university, where we run up to each other and I say, “Oh my God, it’s so good to see you,” and then Matthew comes in and is a little chilly, and suspicious about my relationship.
