In the two-hour first-season finale of THE PASSAGE on Fox, Monday, March 11, things change a lot for the characters, and for the whole world. Nobody is willing to say exactly what those changes are – nobody wants to give spoilers – but everybody agrees something monumental happens. In the television adaptation of Justin Cronin’s trilogy of novels, we know that government experiment Project Noah has gone terribly wrong, resulting in people becoming vampire-like Virals. Young Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney) has been exposed to the virus, but she is different from the other Virals. Former special agent Brad Wolgast (Mark-Paul […]Read On »

In Fox’s Monday-night drama THE PASSAGE, Saniyya Sidney stars as ten-year-old Amy Bellafonte.

With no family, and because children seem to weather the vaccine better than adults, Amy is brought in as a test subject. After being given the vaccine, she develops abilities, but she is not like the other virals. Sidney began her onscreen career as […]Read On »
