'Being Human’s Kristen Hager Gets Intimate With Playboy

Courtesy Playboy
Syfy’s hit series about a vampire, werewolf and ghost who just happen to be roomies, kicks off its third season tonight at 9 p.m. ET. To get you in the mood, here is a little taste of what’s in store for nurse and Josh’s were-girlfriend, Nora.

Now regular cast member, Kristen Hager recently sat down with for an on-set interview and talked about what its like to tackle such a role. Hager promises that unlike the darkness that Season 2 brought, Season 3 is promised to be a bit lighter and reminiscent of the fun relationship that Sally, Aidan and Josh had during Season 1.

Kristen is also a fan of playing an "ugly" character and loves the freedom that not having to worry about "beauty" hair and make-up. One thing she does stress about are the sex scenes. Even though she’s a beautiful woman who has nothing to worry about, she never feels comfortable doing them. Anybody you talk to in the industry pretty much says the same thing...that sex scenes are far from sexy. She laughs that, " just have to forget about the cameras and try and be as present as possible and forget about it and hope for the best."

Playing a werewolf surprisingly is not Kristen’s most difficult role. In 2009, she played one of the Manson Family convicted murderers, Leslie Van Houten, in the Canadian film, Leslie, My Name Is Evil.

They didn’t ask her is if she’s single, but just a hint guys, she’s into red wine, French food and her dream car is a Vintage 1972 Porsche. You can check her and the rest of the Being Human gang, Monday nights at 9 p.m.ET on Syfy.

And in case you missed, Hager's costar Meaghan Rath also spoke to last year.
