WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - When not battling demons and death on the set of Sleepy Hollow, Lyndie Greenwood revealed she enjoyed Wilmington's food and wine scene while filming the first season of the show. Greenwood tells us she is training to be a sommelier.

The Canadian-born actress talked about her love for Wilmington, being a part of the hit FOX show and some behind-the-scene secrets in a recent interview with us.

About the show, Greenwood said she knew it was destined for success.

"I'm not surprised that it found its audience," she said. "I think there are a lot of trends that led it to being successful in this moment."

When we first met her character, Jenny was in a mental health facility. Now, she's fighting alongside her sister, Abby, and Ichabod Crane in the ultimate showdown between good and evil.

She has high praise for the show's writers and creators.

"They amaze me every time," she said. "I get the script and I'm like, 'Oh yeah, this is happening.'"

Most of the time, Greenwood said she is kept in the dark about what's happening with her character.

"I know as little as the audience most of the time," she revealed. "They really try and keep you in the dark in a way and at first that bothered me but then I realized that life is like that. You don't know what's going to happen tomorrow – so in a way, trying to play an honest character, it's better not to know what's happening."

When I asked her for some behind the scenes scoop, she revealed the time she encouraged everyone to do shots of pickle back, including Tom Mison, who plays Crane.

"None of them had ever tried a pickle back," she said. "It's a shot of Jameson followed by a shot of pickle brine. So, I decided to order everyone one and some people liked it."

She admits Mison wasn't a fan.

Greenwood brought a giant jar of Mt. Olive pickles to the show's wrap party last month, urging cast and crew members to partake.

The crew wrapped production on the show in late December. Production starts back up again in March.

So, it will only be a matter of time before Greenwood is back in town, enjoying Wilmington's wine scene and an occasional pickleback with friends.
