Video Q&A: Iddo Goldberg and Elise Eberle talk “SALEM” Season Two!


Of course, with a show like SALEM, brutality comes with the territory… quite literally. Inspired by the actual Salem Witch Trials, the show takes some gleefully disturbing liberty with the source material to put both the audience and certain characters through the ringer. And when FANGORIA was transported to SALEM ourselves, courtesy of WGN America, we were able to meet two of SALEM’s most tragic characters in their perpetually damned flesh: Iddo Goldberg (a/k/a the unlucky Isaac) and Elise Eberle (a/k/a the tortured rebel witch Mercy).

With the second season gearing up to debut, fans of SALEM know that both Isaac and Mercy were left in difficult spots at the end of season one; however, Isaac is not down-and-out just yet, and Mercy has war on her mind. Luckily, Goldberg and Eberle could be the farthest thing possible from their on-screen counterparts, and their enthusiasm to be apart of the golden age of genre television made for an exceptional chat. In the video below, Goldberg and Eberle discuss surviving SALEM’s first season, real-life superstitions and much, much more…

SALEM returns on WGN America on Sunday, April 5th at 10 p.m. EST. You can currently catch up with the first season on Netflix Instant, Amazon Instant and Amazon DVD on-demand. Stay tuned here at FANGORIA.com for more interviews from the set of SALEM!
