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 Networks’ freshman Monday-night drama THE PASSAGE, based on Justin Cronin’s trilogy of novels, an attempt to find a cure for a pandemic has gone very wrong. Instead of curing a deadly flu, experiments on death-row inmates have created Virals, so-called because the scientists can’t bring themselves to say “vampires.” Brianne Howey plays one of the Virals, Shauna Babcock. Shauna was raped by her stepfather; when Shauna’s mother blamed the young woman rather than the perpetrator, Shauna snapped and killed both mom and stepdad. Now Shauna appears to the world as a veiny, blood-drinking monster, but in her own […]Read On »

In Fox’s Monday-night drama THE PASSAGE, Saniyya Sidney stars as ten-year-old Amy Bellafonte. Adapted from Justin Cronin’s trilogy of novels, THE PASSAGE explores what happens when an intended vaccine for a worldwide flu pandemic winds up turning human experimental subjects into telepathic “virals” (because most of the characters can’t bring themselves to say the word “vampire”). 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 »
