22 year old Australian actress Phoebe Tonkin is probably best known for her performances as Cleo Sertori in H2O: Just Add Water and Fiona Maxwell in Tomorrow, When the War Began. However, she has recently expanded her fan base by appearing as Faye Chamberlain in the supernatural show The Secret Circle, which airs on The CW. Phoebe has taken time to discuss why she thinks people are becoming more and more fascinated with witches again.
Tonkin explained, “I think it’s the idea that magic is infinite and that there are not many rules, which is what’s cool. There is no end to this, like where vampires can’t go outside in the sun, witches can do anything. I think that’s where the moral dilemma comes in: if we have this incredible power, how far do we take it and do we use it for good or do we use it for bad? Or, do we not use it? There’s always that question.”
The Secret Circle premiered on The CW on Thursday September 15 and was then ordered for a full twenty two episode first season, on October 12, 2011. You can see Phoebe Tonkin portraying Faye Chamberlain, alongside Thomas Dekker as Adam Conant, in The Secret Circle, every Thursday evening on The CW.
