Syfy recently premiered its new series Dominion
. Two of the stars, Tom Wisdom, who plays the archangel Michael, and Roxanne McKee, who plays Claire Risen, talked to the digital media about their new roles.
McKee talked to SciFi Vision about what first drew her to the project. "When I read the script, gosh way back, ages ago now, I just thought it was a really interesting script. I thought the concept was really interesting, the ideology behind it. And I thought the part of Claire had a lot of room to grow. And I wanted to play a strong female character, and Claire definitely fitted that bill.
"And I think the writers' vision, Vaun's vision, and Scott, our original director and now producer, was one of real strength for a female character, which was a really big deal to me. And when I discussed that with them in the audition, when I got my recall, we were all on the same page. We were thinking more Princess Leia than Princess Sparkle, if that makes sense."

On Tuesday Syfy premiered its new 30-minute show, The Wil Wheaton Project
. Each week Wheaton will discuss and celebrate what's current and trending in science fiction and genre entertainment. The show will cover not just television and film, but also other parts of pop culture, video games, comics, and more.
Wheaton recently talked to the media about his new series and what fans could expect in the coming weeks.
Wheaton talked to SciFi Vision about some of the challenges involved in making the show. "The show launches today, and last week and the week before a bunch of the shows that we cover had their finales, so we couldn't talk about, like for example, there's no Game of Thrones
this week, and Game of Thrones
is a load-bearing pillar in our world.
"But we all knew that was going to happen, and if everything goes according to plan, we're going to be on television for a really long time, and we'll be on a time where there really isn't a whole lot of new stuff, and we just kind of have to roll with it."
