Austin Butler Dishes On How Much He Related to 'Shannara Chronicles' Wil

Austin Butler Dishes On How Much He Related to 'Shannara Chronicles' Wil

You might not know this about Austin Butler, but he was once a loner, just like his character Wil on The Shannara Chronicles.

Because of that, Austin says it was easy to relate to him.

“Season 1, he’s very much the fish out of water. He’s the outsider where he’s never felt at home, really. I’ve definitely felt that,” he shared recently at NYCC.

Austin continues, “I remember, growing up before I met any actors, I was like, ‘I don’t fit in with the sports kids.’ I just didn’t feel like I fit in. I was very much a loner.”

But then he found where he fit in, and found a “tribe”.

“That was such a nice feeling. To not feel alone. So, that played into it a lot,” Austin adds. “Feeling uncomfortable in my own skin for years and then having to dig down inside and find where the strength is. … For Wil, it really started when he lost his mom.”

“I’ve gone through some really close things and that caused me to have to dig in and say, ‘What am I living for?’ When you experience that sort of pain, what’s life about? It sounds super-deep and weird. It’s, like, we’re talking about a fantasy show, but that’s what I always look for.”

Stay tuned for sneak peeks at this week’s Shannara Chronicles episode!

Wil Heals Himself with Magic Stones in 'Shannara Chronicles' Season 2 Premiere Clip - Watch Now!

Wil Heals Himself with Magic Stones in 'Shannara Chronicles' Season 2 Premiere Clip - Watch Now!

Wil (Austin Butler) isn’t taking any chances in getting kicked out of Storlock in this new clip from the premiere of The Shannara Chronicles.

Luckily for him, he still has his magic stones to heal himself, which before he uses them, he tells Mareth (Malese Jow) to “enjoy the show”.

In season two, The Four Lands is in chaos. The re-emergence of magic has the populace terrified, and an organization called The Crimson is hunting down magic users, using fear and intimidation to sow discord among the races. Wil, scarred by the loss of Amberle and his separation from Eretria, has turned his back on his magical destiny to become a healer.

But when a mysterious woman named Mareth saves Wil from a Crimson attack, he is forced to rejoin the fight. After reuniting with Eretria, Wil and Mareth seek out Allanon, only to learn that the Druid’s former protégé, Bandon, is on a mission to resurrect a creature of darkest evil: The Warlock Lord.

Together, our heroes must band together to take down The Crimson and prevent Bandon from unleashing an even greater threat upon the Four Lands, before it’s too late.

The Shannara Chronicles premieres TONIGHT @ 10PM ET/PT on Spike.

Austin Butler Teases What Wil Is Doing & Feeling in 'Shannara Chronicles' Season 2

Austin Butler Teases What Wil Is Doing & Feeling in 'Shannara Chronicles' Season 2

Austin Butler teams up with his co-stars Vanessa Morgan, Ivana Baquero, and Manu Bennett for a shot on the press line during 2017 New York Comic Con over the weekend.

The Shannara Chronicles stars spoke about the upcoming second season, which premieres on Wednesday on Spike.

In the new season, it’s a year later and people are not reacting to the re-introduction of magic well and it’s something that Austin‘s Wil is feeling too, and in despair.

“Because it is a year later, I just really played with that feeling of despair,” Austin shared. “The feeling of like, ’I’m doing my best but what am I here for?’”

He adds about seeing Wil in the place he was after in the first place: “It was really interesting to have the same character but really dig into that. Think about – when life starts getting really messy and we start changing as humans. Are we the same person? Can we find love again? Can we find hope again?”

Meanwhile, Manu (Allanon) opened up about one scene that even took him by surprise.

“There’s a big game changer half way through the season that really surprised me,” he says. “They sort of kept it as a big secret and that’s all I can say…”

He added, “But what I do know is that those things we’re talking about in the first season about Allanon’s involvement and relationship with various characters, I got a lot of opportunity this season to get gritty with quite a few characters actually. Wil is one of them.”

Be sure to check back for more Shannara info and tune into the premiere on Wednesday, October 11th on Spike!

Wil & Eretria Have An Unbreakable Bond on 'Shannara Chronicles', Ivana Baquero Says

We’re only a week away from The Shannara Chronicles season two premiere and Ivana Baquero is giving us just a little taste of what we’re going to see.

There are new characters, a new big bad in The Crimson, and there’s life beyond Arborlon in The Four Lands — but one thing will never change and that’s Eretria and Wil’s bond.

“Whether romantically or not, Wil and Eretria will always be destined to have a future together,” Ivana shared in a recent interview.

She adds, “They’ve been through so much together that inevitably they share a unique and unbreakable bond. Amidst pains and scars left behind from Season 1, Wil and Eretria will find a way to each other in Season 2.”

The Shannara Chronicles returns on Wednesday, October 11th @ 10PM ET/PT on Spike.

We have two weeks until The Shannara Chronicles is back on our television screens and the writers are giving us a major preview in a new featurette.

“We didn’t want to go back to Arborlon, we wanted to see something different,” Miles Mallar shared. “So we built the whole Palace of Leah. Very gold, very blingy and very different from the Elves.”

Al Gough adds, “We’ll also see Storlock, which is kind of a gnome village and they are the best healers in the Four Lands.”

Other places on the map we’ll see this season include Graymark, Skull Mountain, and more.
