Interview: Fiona Gubelmann


The hit FXX series Wilfred will begin its fourth and final season this Wednesday June 25th at 10pmEST. The series follows Ryan (Elijah Wood), who is a guy struggling to find his place in the world until he meets his neighbor Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann) and her dog Wilfred (Jason Gann). Everyone else sees Wilfred as just an ordinary dog except for Ryan. Ryan sees an Australian guy in a grey dog suit who loves to smoke pot and cause mischief. The show has been a winner for the FXX network and one of the reasons for that success is the work of Fiona Gubelmann.

Fiona sat down with the Pop Culture Principle to talk about the journey her character has taken so far on the series, working with Elijah and Jason and what fans can look forward to in the final season. She also discusses how important the fans have been to the success of the series.

Pop Culture Principle – For those who haven’t seen the show, can you tell us what Wilfred is about?

Fiona Gubelmann – Wilfred is a dark comedy that is somewhat like a Calvin & Hobbs come to life type show. It’s basically a buddy comedy where Elijah Wood’s character Ryan sees his next door neighbor's dog as this big Australian dude in a grey dog suit. He can talk to him and go off on these crazy adventures while everyone else sees him just as a regular dog.
