Shane West about John Alden

Shane West about John Alden

Explaining that ‘Salem’ takes liberty to focus on character over history, West told me of his research for the role of John Alden:

I was surprised to discover that during this time period, you think of witches being burned. It’s a classic thing, even though it was more of a myth at this time. [Witches] were more hung, or stoned, or drowned. That stood out to me, because I just assumed that that was one of the ways of torture. But this is historical fiction; we have a license to tell the story differently. I wanted to get a little bit of the background of the real John Alden, but I didn’t feel all of it necessary, considering we weren’t going to explore other parts of his life.
