Over the last four years, the small town of Everwood and its inhabitants have
held a special place in our hearts. Vivien Cardone, one of the stand-out cast
members, has grown so much over those four years, and every season has been a
delight to watch. Over the course of the show Vivien has received rave reviews
and after her role as the daughter of Dr. Andy Brown and kid-sister of Ephram
Brown for four seasons, it seems she's well on her way to becoming a star.
Vivien and her family have been so gracious in
being involved with EverwoodOnline.com and the fans of the show. In addition to interviewing her grandfather back in 2002, I have
now also had the extreme privilege of getting the chance to interview
Vivien, and she was kind enough to answer a few questions submitted by EverwoodOnline.com members. Enjoy!
Q. First off, you're an adorable, intelligent and beautiful young woman. My question for you is this: Where do you see yourself in 10 years? - dogluver1970
A. Thank you for saying such nice things about me. I hope to have completed Culinary School and to still be acting and loving it!
Q. Is there anything that you wish the writers would have explored more of with your character? - WatcherWil
A. Well, the fifth year of Everwood was supposed to be more focused on Delia's character. Her becoming a teenager, dealing with a step mother, a step brother, a horse. You know, just those things. I'm sorry I won't get a chance to be a part of that.
Q. What are your upcoming projects after Everwood? - JacobMatthew
A. I just finished filming "Shadows of Atticus" in Missouri. Now, I'm just having a fun summer back in New York.
Q. I'm sure there have been loads of amazing moments and memories created while being on Everwood. Do you have a favorite memory or moment with the cast you'd like to share with us? - *Twinkle*
A. I would have to say meeting everyone in the cast for the first time. We had a dinner in Canada and became instant family!
Q. The cast on the show seems so much like a family on the show. Is this true in real life? Who are you closest to on set? - swimmergrl50
A. Definitely! We are all very close. The end of Everwood is not the end of our family! I am closest to Treat, of course. He was and is like a second father to me. I worked with him the most and became closest to him.
Q. What will you miss most about being on Everwood? - ShannonQT85
A. Just knowing that I'll be seeing my "family" regularly. I know that when movies or shows end, you don't get to see the people as often as you'd like. I wanted to see Russell Crowe, Paul Bettany, and everyone from A Beautiful Mind, but they had other things going on with their lives. I know I was young and didn't have much in common with them, but I loved them just the same and miss them very much to this day. I know I'll see them again someday! At least with Everwood, a lot of people are living in Utah and staying there, so I'll be seeing them for dinners and barbecues and stuff. I'm glad about that.
Q. Was there a big party at the end of filming the last episode? - Daydrem83
A. Just the normal wrap party. It was a bit sad, since we knew it could be the last. They had a video of a bunch of scenes from the four years of Everwood, and almost everyone was crying. It was very emotional.
Q. What storyline of yours is your favorite and why? - alexisfan
A. The bat mitzvah. It was fun to learn a few things from the real Rabbi and have the party for Delia. They made a dress special for Delia (which I have now). And it was fun to get carried around in the chair!
Q. Everwood was an incredible family drama that dealt with real-life issues. It really made me appreciate the importance of family and friends. Were there any important life lessons that you learned from playing your character? - tatianamh
A. Life is short. Tell those around you how much you love them, because they may be gone before you know it.
Q. The fans are still actively campaigning for there to be another season, do you think there is any hope for another season, or is it definitely over? - Emma
A. All things are possible with God. If it's meant to be, Everwood will be back. I hope so. I wasn't ready for it to end. If it doesn't, than there must be something special out there waiting for me.
Q. What do you think about all the fan campaigns to save the show? - Noah
A. It is so great to know that so many people out there feel as we do about Everwood. It was a special show and it should not have been cancelled. Of course, not every episode was perfect and we can't please everybody, but we put so much of ourselves into each show and it's really nice to know that people loved us for it. At least we'll still be on ABC Family! Thank you for everything and stay fans "ForEverwood"! God Bless you all!
