Exclusive Interview with Joanne Kelly at the Set of Warehouse 13 in Toronto, 8/23/14By Jamie Ruby
This August SciFi Vision had the opportunity to visit the Warehouse 13
set. Joanne Kelly, who stars as Myka Bering on the show, sat down to talk with SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview.
There is quite a lot going on in the final season of the series. "I kind of explained it when I was at Comic-Con; it's as if Jack Kenny our showrunner was packing for vacation and he stuffed as many things in the suitcase as humanly possible. It's like he sat on it and just stuffed the episodes so full. There's so much that happens in just six [episodes]."
Exclusive Interview with Allison Scagliotti at the Warehouse 13 set in Toronto, 8/23/13By Jamie Ruby
In August SciFi Vision had the amazing opportunity to visit the Warehouse 13
set in Toronto during filming of the season finale.
Allison Scagliotti, who plays Claudia Donovan on the popular Syfy series, talked to SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview.
Scagliotti talked about some of the things crammed into the final season. "What I love about Warehouse 13
[is] the amps turned up to eleven. We have a crazy telenovela episode that's half in Spanish. We deal with Paracelsus (Anthony Head), and I don't want to spoil that too much, because that's a really exciting and kind of Buffyesque kind of moment. For Claudia, we finally get to learn what happened to her family, and we meet her sister (Chryssie Whitehead) who Claudia was not aware was still alive. So Claudia and Artie (Saul Rubinek) have to sort of deal with how that changes their relationship; he was keeping it from her, and what she has to learn from the situation, which is that some things in life you can't fix."

Anybody who has watched or listened to interviews with the cast of Warehouse 13
can easily see how well they get along and how much fun they have together; it's really quite infectious. Over the years I have had the privilege of interviewing the cast, as well as executive producer Jack Kenny, on multiple occasions. I even visited the set in Toronto as part of the Syfy Digital Press Tour a couple years ago.
When I visited the set again last August for SciFi Vision, along with writer Karen Moul, I experienced that energy, yet another feeling as well. I was there during the series finale and one of the last days of filming for the cast, in fact, it was the last day they filmed in Artie (Saul Rubinek)'s office. There was a feeling of somberness for everyone as the day wound down and it started to sink in. I felt quite honored to be able to be there at such a significant time.

Tonight fan favorite Warehouse 13
returns to Syfy for its fifth and unfortunately final season. The episode picks off where the season four finale left off, with Paracelsus (Anthony Head) having taken over the warehouse and he and Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) in a standoff. However, it's going to take a lot more than Claudia's connection to the warehouse and quick thinking to stop him.

This May a brand new science fiction event will be happening on the west coast: Sci-Fest, the 1st annual Los Angeles science fiction one-act play festival. The festival will showcase interesting stories and great sci-fi talent that you have come to know over the years.
The idea for the festival came from Sci-Fest Producer David Dean Bottrell, who many will know from his role as Lincoln Meyer on season three of Boston Legal,
or from one of his many other guest appearances on series such as Mad Men
, True Blood
, Days of Our Lives
, and Castle
, just to name a few, or from his critically-acclaimed one-man shows or other theater work.
Bottrell recently sat down with SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview to talk about Sci-Fest, which will come to fruition in May.

is based on a legend from 18th century Japan that tells the tale of a group of 47 samurai warriors who become what's called ronin when their master is killed, as they attempt to reclaim the honor of their master.
The movie, directed by Carl Rinsch, starts by introducing the samurai warriors and their master Lord Asano (Min Tanaka) of Ako. While hunting in the forest Lord Asano finds a boy about his daughter's age, Kai (Keanu Reeves), but he is a half-breed (half demon). Lord Asano saves him against the samurai's wishes and takes him with them.

On April 14th Syfy will premiere its fifth and final season of Warehouse 13
. Recently stars Eddie McClintock and Joanne Kelly, along with executive producer Jack Kenny, talked to the digital media about the final six episodes.
There were a lot of great memories from the show. Were there any characters or storylines that they would have liked to have explored more if there was more time? There were quite a few. Kenny told SciFi Vision, "I would've loved to have done a little bit more with Pete's mom, but scheduling screwed us on that. But most people don't know that half the time when you don't see a character come back on a show it's because they got another job.
"But there were several characters that I would've loved to see a little bit more of that we really liked."

Friday Syfy premiered season three of Continuum
. The new episode picked up where the last left off, with Alec (Erik Knudsen) having gone back in time to try to save his girlfriend Emily (Magda Apanowicz). Star Rachel Nichols, who plays Kiera Cameron, and the creator and executive producer, Simon Barry, talked to the media about the new season.
In the first episode of the season, Kiera and Garza (Luvia Petersen) got to work together for the first time, and it made for some great moments. Barry told SciFi Vision, "We knew that we were tied to [Garza] having been captured by the freelancers in Season 2 and when we decided to have Kiera go back chasing Alec in time, there was a decision made about when she would go back and what was the configuration of the show at that point in time, and we realized, well, we're sending Kiera back roughly a week and what's the situation a week earlier? And we went back to our previous episodes and realized, well, this is just after Garza had been taken, and so we saw an opportunity there to take advantage of that, really, and also put Kiera in a situation where she could replay events of her escape and have them turn out differently, which I think was important for that first episode, this first episode, because when you do time travel you need touchstones of storytelling. And I think that the idea that within the episode itself we could see that happen in the context of Kiera and Garza, so we saw that something bad happened to Garza, and then after Kiera had time traveled she could prevent that.

Tonight Syfy airs the season four finale of Lost Girl
. In preparation, stars Anna Silk, who plays the succubus Bo, Ksenia Solo, who plays her best friend Kenzi, Kris Holden-Ried, who plays Bo's love interest Dyson, and Zoie Palmer, who plays Lauren, the other member of that love triangle, talked to the digital media recently about the end of the season and what could possibly be coming moving into season five.
This season has had a lot of dark moments. One particular heart-wrenching event was Hale (K.C. Collins) being killed. The cast talked about finding out about the character's death. Solo told SciFi Vision, "It was very sad to find out about Hale dying. I think it was extremely unexpected, and the character and the person, K.C. Collins, is such an integral part of the Lost Girl
family, and we've all really grown together over these last five years since the pilot. And so, of course, it's like losing a family member in a way. It was very sad.
"But I think we knew at the beginning of the season that that was going to happen...I can't remember exactly when we found out, but we all had to make peace with it as the season went on, but it was really hard to say goodbye to him for sure."
