INDIEWIRE.COM: It’s hard to think of two more disparate projects than a supernatural Fox drama and a Terrence Malick film, but that’s what the IMDB profile of Katia Winter happens to look like. The Swedish-born actress guest-starred on a variety of UK and US television productions before landing a series regular role on “Sleepy Hollow.” But around the same time she was digging into the role of Katrina Crane, powerful witch and wife to Ichabod (Tom Mison), she got the opportunity to play a supporting role in Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups,” which premieres at the Berlin Film Festival this weekend. At the time of this interview, Winter wasn’t sure if she had made the final cut of “Knight of Cups,” but she still was able to tell Indiewire about what it was like to improvise with Christian Bale, the fun of working with Malick, what’s been frustrating about playing a damsel in distress on “Sleepy Hollow” (as opposed to a character in her own right) and whether she knows for sure if she’ll be back for a potential Season 3.

What’s it like improvising with Christian Bale?Intimidating! I remember when we first got there, [Malick] was briefing me and Joel, and just said “You can do no wrong, you can do whatever you want. I’m just going to give you directions. I’m just going to throw you in scenes, and then give you cues.” I was thinking to myself, “What am I doing here? I don’t want to do this. I don’t think I’m able to do this! I don’t know what I’m going to do.” As soon as we started, it was so much fun. I’m not used to working without a script, not knowing what to do — you just have to go on instinct, which is an interesting way of working. I guess it’s what he does a lot of the time. It’s just about actors doing their thing, and then he captures moments, which is scary but fun at the same time.

WILMINGTON, NC. It’s nearly half-way through production on the second season of FOX’s “Sleepy Hollow” and Katia Winter is getting to scratch an itch. Let’s pretend that I’m being metaphorical and talking about the expanded opportunities for Winter’s Katrina, who spent the first “Sleepy Hollow” as more of a recurring plot device than a recurring character. She’d show up in expositional flashbacks or she’d pop up to help cut a narrative corner through witchcraft, but it was hard to get a feeling for Katrina as a person, much less for Katrina and Ichabod as a couple.

Perhaps that’s why a large segment of the “Sleepy Hollow” fandom was able to ignore that when they shipped IchAbbie, one of the principals was a man who was, at least ostensibly, happily married. Through the two episodes that have aired, we’ve already gotten more of Katrina as a human character than we got all of last season and the contemporary scene with Katrina and Ichabod last week was new for the show.

So let’s say I’m being metaphorical. I’m not. No, it’s a steamy day in late August in North Carolina and the itch that Winter is scratching is very literal. She was out shooting in the woods the night before and, as seems to happen simply as a matter of course in such circumstances, she was eaten alive by unidentified insects. So as we sit talking about Katrina’s expanded Season 2 role, Winter is going through a cycle of scratching and apologizing. As you might guess, skin irritations aside, Winter is happy to find herself with a regular TV role this season, as well as a character she can sink her teeth into, like a chigger sinking its teeth into a Swedish actress in the forest. In our conversation, she discusses the tensions between Katrina and Ichabod, as well as Katrina’s feelings for her Moloch-affiliated son.

And we talked about the bugs and humidity. It was hard not to…

HitFix: So in the first season, Katrina’s really sort of more of an idea than actually a person. She’s sort of this thing that’s out there with power…

Katia Winter: That no one really knows. [She laughs.]

HitFix: That no one really knows. What has it been like this season to actually make a person of her?

Katia Winter: Great. So great! I’ve been waiting. I feel I’ve been waiting so long. It’s nice to kind of finally have some breathing room and just have an actual dialogue with all these characters rather than turning up and spitting out lots of information, which will help move her along. So it’s been great kind of coming into her… I’m exploring it myself as I go because I haven’t really been able to do much of that in season one, and then having real moments with Crane and real moments with Abbie and the Headless Horseman. That’s been a lot of fun.

Sleepy Hollow star Katia Winter is refreshingly blunt as she recalls the first time she read the pilot script for US TV’s newest cult sensation:

“I read the first episode and I thought… Oh God, either this is going to be really good or really s**t! It was so bonkers and so crazy!” she laughs. “I thought, ‘I’m just going to see what happens’, and after watching the pilot, I thought, ‘OK, anything is possible!’ Since then, they’ve taken it a lot further and it’s never disappointed me.”

There’s no denying the success of Sleepy Hollow – the show’s pilot pulled in over 10m viewers, the Fox network’s highest-rated fall drama debut in six years, and subsequent episodes were also strong performers. It later became the first fall series to receive a renewal, with a second 13-part season confirmed in October 2013 – less than a month after the series premiere.

“It was kind of shocking actually,” admits Winter – who plays Katrina, secret witch and beloved wife of the show’s lead Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison). “I was amazed and pleasantly surprised that it did so well across the board.”
