I consider interviews exclusive if they are private or one-on-one or in person interviews. These were not part of press conference calls or group discussions. These are exclusives that are currently published here at SciFi Vision or as part of one of SciFi Vision's own podcasts, or in some early cases at Media Blvd. Magazine.

I also have chosen to include some interviews from press events that are only open to a select few and not the general press or public, such as convention press rooms and everything from the Syfy Digital Press Tours, as although they are not entirely exclusive, they do contain exclusive photos and sometimes videos that no other site has (I have started to mark some of these as "Spotlight" as opposed to "Exclusive"), or may be about my own experiences only at the events. Note that in a few specific cases, the set tours were exclusive and specifically for SciFi Vision.

All of the articles unless otherwise noted were written by me, Jamie Ruby, and are copyright © 2014 Sci-Fi Vision. If you would like to post an article on your own site, please let us know first. Please do not use any of the exclusive photos or videos on your own site without permission (it will usually be given).

Pisay PaoTomorrow, the series Z Nation returns to Syfy for its second season. The series takes place in a virus-caused zombie apocalypse and follows a group of survivors as they transport Murphy (Keith Allan), the only survivor of a zombie bite who did not turn, to a lab in California to try to save the human race.

In preparation, actress Pisay Pao, who stars as Cassandra, a member of the group transporting Murphy, recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about the series.

At the end of the first season, much of the group was separated. According to Pao, howevever, fans won't have to wait long before finding out where the characters are headed. "We really hit the ground running, and even though the group is separated at the end of episode thirteen...you're not going to have to wait long to figure out who's with who, you know, if they have found each other, and who has found each other, and where are they headed at this point. I think all of those questions get answered right away within the first two episodes."

Anthony LemkeTonight Syfy airs an all-new episode of its series Dark Matter. The series, based on the graphic novel by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, who also serve as executive producers on the series, follows the crew of a derelict spacecraft, the Raza, who have awakened from stasis with no memory of who they are or how they got on board. The six crew members have started to unravel their pasts, which include learning they were all criminals, but much is still a mystery to them as they continue to move ahead to a future of their choosing.

Recently star Anthony Lemke, who plays Three, talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about who his character really is and what fans can expect from the rest of the season.

Shooting the show itself was easier than most projects, because a lot of the cast and crew had already worked together before. "I would say that it was an easy shoot in a lot of ways. The folks who we were shooting with, a lot of them had shot together for five years on Lost Girl, and so we benefitted from that sort of family aspect.

Joseph MallozziTonight, Syfy airs an all-new episode of its new series, Dark Matter. The series follows the crew of a derelict space craft, who awaken from stasis with no memories to their identities or what they are doing on the ship, the Raza. The series is based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name. Both the comic series and the television series were created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie.

Mallozzi recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about the new space opera.

The producer talked about how the concept of Dark Matter started. "I actually started developing the show way back, I want to say, almost eight years ago, when I was working on Stargate Atlantis, with the idea that once Stargate ended, we would roll right into Dark Matter, except [there was], I hesitate to say, the classic problem, but Stargate kept getting picked up. Every year I'd have to shelve Dark Matter. But the great thing is, you know, because I would have to put it off, I was able to just keep creating the backstories and the detail."

Aaron AshmoreIn November, SciFI Vision was able to take visit the set of Killjoys. Three of the actors did roundtable interviews with Jamie Ruby and Karen Moul of SciFi Vision and two other journalists.

One actor was Aaron Ashmore, who plays the character of John Jaqobis.

The series follows a group of intergalactic bounty hunters called Killjoys, who are hired by the Company as independent contractors for the RAC (Reclamation Apprehension Coalition) who hold no allegiance to any government. They abide by only one law: The Warrant is All.

Ashmore explained a bit to journalists about how the Killjoys work within the system of the law. "We work for the system, and it's sort of set up that it's the Company that we basically get our warrants through. So it is kind of interesting; there is sort of an element to things where we do what we want. We go about fulfilling these bounties for the most part however we want. If we have to break the rules and all that, we do, but there is still sometimes a structure where we are forced to do things by this Company, based on all sorts of different things. And you can't really say no; you work for them, and they sort of have at the end of the day total control. So there are elements where we're left to our own devices, and we can do whatever we want, and we do sort of break the rules, but at the end of the day we do work for somebody. We do have bosses, and we are accountable to them."

KilljoysEarly in November, SciFi Vision was lucky enough to get a visit to the Syfy set of the upcoming series Killjoys.

Before touring the set, myself and another member of the staff, along with two other journalists, sat in a production office and had roundtable interviews with the series three stars: Aaron Ashmore, Hannah John-Kamen, and Luke Macfarlane (coming soon), and learned a bit more about the show.

In the future, in a galaxy on the verge of interplanetary war, bounty hunters called Killjoys are hired by the Company as independent and non-bias mercenaries to pursue warrants across the Quad, which consists of the planet Qresh and its colonized moons: Westerley, Leith, and Arkyn. Killjoys hold no allegiance and follow only one code, "The Warrant is All."

Westerley, which is where the main characters, a trio of Killjoys, dock their ship, Lucy (voiced by Tamsen McDonough), is more industrial and lower class, whereas Leith is more developed and more of a middle class society.

Nicole MuñozLast week, Syfy premiered season three of its hit series, Defiance, and within it were quite a few big shocks, including the death of Christie McCawley, played by the talented actress, Nicole Muñoz, who recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview.

In the season premiere, after hiding her baby in the closet, Christie watched tragedy unfold as she witnessed both her brother, Quentin (Justin Rain), and her father, Rafe (Graham Greene), get murdered right in front of her. Soon after, her stepmother, Stahma Tarr (Jaime Murray), slit her throat.

The actress found out about her character’s death months in advance, and she understood it. "It was a couple months prior. I don't remember exactly when, but I had a lot of notice. Kevin Murphy called me and was really nice about it. He related the message really clearly and talked about why and what Christie's storyline is, and how she's dying for the baby, and that it's a very important story to tell, and it helps propel Stahma's story forward.

Zoie PalmerTonight Syfy premieres its new highly anticipated series, Dark Matter, based on the graphic novel of the same name. The series follows the crew of a derelict spacecraft after they awaken from stasis with no memory of who they are or why they are there. While trying to figure out answers, they awaken the ship's android, played by Lost Girl's Zoie Palmer. The crew must work together, which includes utilizing the Android's help, to find out the truth.

Palmer recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about her time working on the new series, and what fans can expect.

The actress may have already worked with Syfy on another series, but she still got the role of the Android by auditioning. "Of course the producers from Lost Girl knew me, but the creators of Dark Matter didn't. You know, like they sort of hadn't met me, or weren't overly familiar with my work. So I auditioned for those guys, and we kind of went from there. It was kind of that process.

Zoie PalmerRecently the fifth and final season of Syfy’s popular series premiered. Star Zoie Palmer, who plays human Dr. Lauren Lewis, recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about her time working on the series and what’s next for her.

From the beginning of the series, there has been the main love triangle between Bo (Anna Silk) and Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) and Bo and Lauren. The actress, however, was tightlipped about what is coming between Lauren and the succubus this season. "I can almost say absolutely nothing, other than it's going to be as tumultuous as always. It's going to be as up and down and left and right and crazy as always."

Even though both characters are in love with Bo, Lauren and Dyson through the seasons have formed somewhat of a friendship with each other. "Dyson and Lauren have always had a really complicated relationship, because their biggest thing in common, of course, is Bo, and the love for her and the protection of her, and they both take that so fiercely seriously. And I think that they respect each other because of that, and I think they always have.

Graham ShielsSyfy's new mythological series Olympus airs Thursdays. Recently, star Graham Shiels, who plays King Aegeus on the show, talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about his role.

The actor first talked about how he got the role. "I was in Vancouver just for the weekend, and I have a great agent in Vancouver working for me. While I was there, I had this audition from a casting director by the name of Sean Cossey, who also cast Arrow, which I did three episodes of. And I went into this audition with him, and I was like, "Wow this is so cool."

"And they wanted everything in a British dialect, and you know, I'm a classically trained actor from Yale School of Drama, and I looked at this material and was like, 'this is like Shakespeare on camera; this is like a dream; it's amazing.'

Laura VandervoortTonight season two of the popular series Bitten returns to Syfy with two all-new back-to-back episodes. Based on the best-selling book series Women of the Otherworld, by Kelley Armstrong, the series this season is in for some changes as witches are introduced into the mix. Star Laura Vandervoort, who plays werewolf Elena Michaels, recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about what's to come this season.

Season two picks up where the previous left off with Elena still dealing with her fiancé Philip (Paul Greene)'s death. According to Vandervoort, fans will see a very different Elena this season. "This season picks up three days after our finale. Emotions run high and vengeance is all Elena can truly think about. She has not taken the time to mourn Philip. The true change in Elena this season is her seemingly acceptance of her fate. She does not apologize for her actions this season. There is no questioning who she is and what she has to do.

"The approach this season was really just being emotionally certain and all in. Season one, Elena was constantly torn between the two lives she was living. She constantly fought the animal within her, trying to suppress it. No more."
