Talking about his character
Riven is a nonchalant second-year Specialist and Sky’s best friend. He is romantically involved with Beatrix. Freddie Thorp talks about his character Riven in Fate: The Winx Saga. He describes him as a carefree guy who doesn’t take things too seriously. Freddie says that he could relate to his character in some ways, but he also had to step outside of himself to play the role. He explains that one of the challenges was capturing Riven’s specific personality, which was different from his own. Another challenge was learning how to handle guns for scenes where he used them on screen.
Discussing friendship dynamics in the show
Riven is a nonchalant second-year Specialist and Sky’s best friend on Fate: The Winx Saga. He’s played by Freddie Thorp. In an interview, Freddie talked about the friendship dynamics between Riven and Sky. We’re friends, but I know that there are things that I would do for him that he wouldn’t do for me, said Thorp.
I think it’s because we have different priorities. And then, in turn, if I don’t come to you when you need me to be there then you’ll come to me when I need help. It’s just this give and take that we’ve learned to balance over time because we’ve been friends since we were little kids.
Describing his thoughts on relationships in the series
I think that the relationships in the show are very complicated, Freddie Thorp says of Fate: The Winx Saga. Riven is in a relationship with Beatrix, but he’s also best friends with Sky. And I think that’s something a lot of people can relate to – being in a relationship and also having close friends of the opposite sex. It becomes difficult because sometimes you want to spend time with your friends, but your partner doesn’t necessarily want you to.
When it comes down to it, you’re going to have more fun hanging out with your friends than someone who doesn’t really know what they’re doing when it comes to their life. In my experience, when two people are committed in a relationship and love each other enough, they work through those times where they don’t get along so well.
His favorite scene from the first season
My favorite scene from the first season is the scene where Riven and Sky are in the garden talking. I love that scene because it’s so representative of their friendship. They’re just two guys shooting the breeze, and it’s a really sweet moment. It was one of my favorites to shoot as well, because I felt like we were really capturing something special between these two characters. I remember being on set and thinking how good it was to be back there again.
On how he balances schoolwork and acting
With a demanding school schedule and a busy acting career, Freddie Thorp has to juggle a lot of balls. But he says he wouldn’t have it any other way. I love being able to play such diverse roles, he says. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun. And I always remind myself that if it wasn’t for hard work and dedication, my dreams would never come true. That’s why when things get tough at school or on set, I just push through them.
