iZombie won’t be back in our lives until 2017, but star Rose McIver can already say one thing with certainty as we head towards Season 3: “No one wants to get cast as Liv’s love interest. They know where they’re going.”
McIver was, of course, alluding to Lowell (played by Bradley James) and Drake (Greg Finley) — her Season 1 and Season 2 boyfriends, both of whom are now six feet under — when TVLine spoke with her at The CW’s Upfront last week. But what about Major (Robert Buckley), the only one of Liv’s ex-boyfriends left standing?
“I love that they’re friends first,” she said of the former (for now) couple. “They’ve been able to stand by each other through thick and thin.” That said, also McIver admitted, “It’s a really complicated thing — she’s grieving two dead boyfriends. It’s not that easy to jump straight back in with Major. I think they’re really great for each other, and … they love each other.”
But don’t shed too many tears over Liv’s tragic love life; McIver would prefer that you pass your sympathy along to her partner in crime(fighting):
“I was devastated by Drake passing away, but I was equally devastated by Clive Babineaux and his longtime love Dale Bozzio’s breakup,” she confessed. “I just want Babineaux to be happy — bloody Liv, ruining everything by being a zombie.”
