The world of science fiction television got a boost of sexiness lately when actress Kate Kelton ascended into the world of Haven, the SyFy series currently airing its third season. In the series, Kelton plays the mysterious Jordan who inhabits the trouble (the name for a power or affliction that someone might possess) of emitting jolts of electricity whenever she touches another human being. But she is also working with a group called The Guard that, at this point, seems to be up to no good.
While her “trouble” might keep Jordan at arms length, the same cannot be said for Kelton, who during our recent chat with her at West Hollywood hotspot The Abbey, exuded the kind of good cheer and gregarious conversation that is immediately engaging. (And I think you’ll agree that the same can be said for the photos we shot of her, too!)
During the chat with AfterEllen.com, the 34-year-old Kelton touched on the mystery of Jordan, how she’d love to see some hot scenes with Audrey (played by Emily Rose) and also opened up about her own coming out as bisexual, what she thinks of Lindsay Lohan and Portia de Rossi and what embarrassing song can be found on her iPod.

AfterEllen.com: My first question was going to be if your personal style was like Jordan’s on Haven but here you are in blacks and greys. Did you have a hand in shaping her style on the show?
AE: From the viewer standpoint, there’s still a lot to know about Jordan, but have you been clued into who this woman is or are you learning as we do?
AE: Jordan cannot be touched, and if she touches people, she inflicts pain.
AE: When she does touch somebody it seems like she emotionally gets affected by it.
For her obliviously the repercussion is that she hates inflicting pain on people, and she hates the fact that she can’t touch anybody and nobody can touch her because it must be really isolating and really lonely, right? So, she’s not a fan of using. Even when she has to, she understands why she has to but it takes a toll on her for sure.
AE: So far with what we’ve seen, Jordan seems pretty confident and more than a little aggressive. Are those characteristics that you also share?
AE: What can you tease as far as where Jordan and Nathan are going? There’s definitely a connection happening, especially since you can’t touch people and he can’t feel!
AE: Even though Nathan says he can trust Jordan, in your opinion, should he trust her and should the viewer trust her?
AE: Now, it seems like your character is pretty much involved with Nathan at this point though she did interact more with everyone this past week. Does she become part of the group now?
