PRISON BREAK is a show where, almost invariably, if a character seems too good to be true, they turn out to be very bad indeed. That’s been the case with Mark Feuerstein’s character Jacob Anton Ness. In PRISON BREAK’s fifth season, Tuesdays on Fox Network, in both real time and series time, it’s six years after PRISON BREAK’s original four-year run. Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) is believed to be dead and his widow, Dr. Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), is now married to Feuerstein’s Jacob and raising Michael’s young son Mike (Christian Michael Cooper) with him. Then it turns out […]Read On »

Actress Julie Benz tends to be known for her work in darker, grittier fare, from her big-screen debut in TWO EVIL EYES to her series regular gig as a cop on ROSWELL to her crucial recurring role as the vampire Darla on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL to the doomed Rita Morgan on DEXTER and the morally grounded mayor/madam Amanda Rosewater on three seasons of Syfy’s DEFIANCE. However, Benz’s softer side is on view in the new Hallmark holiday movie CHARMING CHRISTMAS, which has its next airing Thursday, November 12 at 8 PM.

In Syfy’s DEFIANCE, now in its second season Thursdays at 8 PM, it’s been thirty-five years since seven different species of aliens crash-landed on Earth and began interacting with the human population. The Castithans, all white with golden eyes, are among the most prominent – and certainly the most class-conscious – of the off-world races. Jesse Rath plays Alak Tarr, son of Datak Tarr, played by Tony Curran, and Stahma Tarr, played by Jaime Murray. With Datak as a lethal, social-climbing gangster and Stahma as an outwardly proper, privately manipulative poisoner, one might expect Alak to be not very nice, […]Read On »

In DEFIANCE, now in its second season on Syfy, Thursdays at 8 PM, it’s thirty-five years after seven alien races have crash-landed on Earth and are now sharing the planet, some more amicably than others, with humans. One of these races is the Irathients. English actress Stephanie Leonidas (BBC’s DRACULA, THE BIBLE) plays Irisa, a young Irathient woman who was adopted as a child by human nomad-turned-Defiance town sheriff Jeb Nolan, played by Grant Bowler.

In Part 2 of Assignment X’s exclusive interview with Kevin Murphy, the co-creator/executive producer/show runner of Syfy’s DEFIANCE, he talks about metaphor, Votan races and why he never wants to work with feathers again. AX: At what point did you realize the series was in part a metaphor for human on human interaction? KEVIN MURPHY: I think that was always part of it. I’m as proud of this show as anything I’ve ever done, and I’ve done a lot of stuff over the years, and I think it’s really a testament to, we were in a supportive environment with a […]Read On »

DEFIANCE, now in its second season on Syfy Channel, concerns an Earth approximately thirty-five years after seven different types of aliens, known collectively as the Votan, crash-landed on Earth. The Votan have issues with each other, as well as with humans, who – as always – also have issues with one another. At the same time the TV series DEFIANCE began airing, Trion launched its online videogame DEFIANCE, which has story and characters that synch up at various points with the show. This poses a unique challenge for both the TV creative staff and the videogame personnel. DEFIANCE executive producer/co-creator/show […]Read On »

In Season 2 of Syfy’s DEFIANCE, Thursdays at 8 PM, things have only heated up in the town of the title. It’s been three-and-a-half decades since seven different species of aliens, collectively called the Votan, landed on Earth. Integration with the human population – and each other – is still a work in sometimes violent progress.

We’re only at the start of Season 2 of Syfy’s DEFIANCE, returning Thursday June 19, but Jaime Murray’s character Stahma Tarr has already established herself as one of the more formidable antagonists of either gender in science fiction. In DEFIANCE, it’s thirty-five years after seven alien races, collectively known as the Votan, crash-landed on Earth. One of these species is the Castithan, a caste-and-status-conscious group. Stahma is a highborn Castithan who married Datak Tarr, played by Tony Curran, who has risen to prominence in the town of Defiance, formerly St. Louis,MO. Stahma plays the respectful wife, but she shamelessly manipulates […]Read On »
