It won’t be long until Castle hits the air again, and Beckett may be getting out of the hospital just in time to compete for Castle’s attention with a new rival — a beautiful art theft investigator played by The Killing star Kristin Lehman.
In this exclusive Wetpaint Entertainment e-mail interview, Kristin tells us about working with Nathan Fillion again after their 2007 series Drive, the tension between her character and Beckett (Stana Katic), and just how up close and personal Richard Castle will get with the new girl!
Wetpaint Entertainment: What was it like working with Nathan again?
Kristin Lehman: Nathan is one of my favorite co-stars I've ever had the pleasure of working with. On Drive,
I felt like I’d been sent a gift because it had been a long time since
I'd worked with a male co-star so closely who was so committed to doing
good work, and was intelligent and really funny. Since we spent almost
every scene together it was truly a joy.
Having the opportunity to work with him again on Castle was really a lovely little treat. I jumped at the chance because I also consider him a friend.

With just a few weeks left until the Season 4 premiere of Castle on ABC, we caught up with the amazing Tamala Jones to give us a hint of just how much awesomeness we can expect.
In Part 1 of our exclusive Wetpaint Entertainment interview, Tamala, who plays medical examiner Lanie Parish, tells us about the drama that threatens to tear apart Lanie and Javier Esposito (Jon Huertas), fills us in on Nathan Fillion's return to onset goofing — and drops a few choice spoilers about some truly grizzly Castle murders we’ll be seeing soon!
Wetpaint Entertainment: Last time we spoke, you said Lanie would have a lot more to do this season. Is that how it’s turning out?
Yeah! They’ve had me a lot more involved in the crime scenes, even the
secondary crime scenes that we’ve had. Some of the detective work
happens after I’ve gone and autopsied the body. There were certain cases
where I had to go out in the field with Beckett (Stana Katic) to get the other part of the evidence so I could continue my job, which I thought was brilliant, how they incorporated that.
They are adding a lot more Lanie. And there are a lot more sassy lines that you’re going to get from me, which I love.
Do you have any particularly gruesome examinations this season?
with the crimes that are happening, the murder victims, it calls for
Lanie to really show her skills a lot more just because ... OK , I’ll
tell you one and I hope they just — they’re gonna kill me — but we have
someone that was murdered and buried in cement.
So Lanie has got
to get cement off and then we discover some other things that were on
the body once that happens. The crime scenes are a little bit more crazy
