Speaking to the New York Post, the actress explained that there are mysteries in her character's life that she is determined to solve.
“Audrey’s real drive is to solve the mystery of her own life," she said. "Once she lands in Haven, she learns that there may be more to her story and that those clues may be in Haven.”
She revealed that Audrey - an orphan who grew up in foster care - will find herself drawn to local deputy sheriff Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant).
“What’s interesting about Audrey and Nathan’s relationship is that he has his own issues with not being able to feel and she’s locked herself out emotionally," she said. "When these two similar beings finally bump into each other, they both feel, ‘no-one has quite understood me like this before'. ”
Rose also confirmed that she had attempted to research the psychology of being an orphan, but had struggled to find much literature on the subject.
“Orphans also seem to be orphaned by society,” she complained. “They aren’t often referred to or cared for or written about. Orphans have holes in their lives - they don’t know what it’s like to go home for Christmas or call their mum after a crappy day at work. Without that foundation, Audrey has learned to get her validation from her work.”
Haven will premiere July 9 on Syfy.
