TWIST just got off the phone with Burkely Duffield from House of Anubis! He dished on the new season of the mystery show, its prankster cast, and what's next for him. Check out our exclusive convo below, and be sure to tune in for more mystery when House of Anubis season three premieres on Nick next Thursday, January 3rd!
TWIST: Tell us about the new season of House of Anubis!
Burkely Duffield: It's bigger; it's better. There are new relationships, there's a lot more drama, new villains, new sets! We've got some of our biggest and definitely some of our scariest sets this year.
TWIST: What should TWIST readers look forward to this season?
BD: There's definitely some interesting [relationship] ups and downs for my character as well as a couple others in the season!
TWIST: How is your character Eddie changing this season?
BD: Eddie came into the house last year and he had this front up. We saw him last year thaw out and start to get his bearings. So, this season, he's settling into his role and taking up the mantle of the "Osirion," and taking a bigger part in the mysteries.
TWIST: Nathalia Ramos is not going to be back. How has that changed things for the show?
BD: In the past, Nathalia has been the anchor of the mystery section with "Sibuna." As you can imagine in the beginning, the characters are quite divided. They have to strengthen up and see if they can continue on and hopefully be able to solve the mystery!
TWIST: Any funny memories with the cast on set to share?
BD: We're always joking around. Just the other day we were all sitting at the dining room table for a scene and we all started tapping, chiming in with music and by the end of it, we almost had a full production musical going on!
TWIST: Do you guys ever prank each other?
BD: The other day we took a wig that props had and we decided to try to incorporate it into the scenes. We put it on different props in the background. In the show, Victor has a series of animals that have been stuffed. So, we tried to put it on different animals and tried walking into scenes with it on. Unfortunately it didn't get into any shots, but it was still quite funny and kept us laughing all day!
TWIST: What's next for you?
BD: The journey ahead, at least for me right now, is the show for the next couple months. After that, honestly I don't even know. I'm going to see what comes--could be a movie, could be another show!
