SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Exclusive: Resident Alien’s Elizabeth Bowen on Deputy Liv's Confidence

***The following interview contains light spoilers for tonight's episode***

Elizabeth BowenTonight, an all-new episode of Resident Alien premieres on Syfy. This season, with the introduction of Detective Lena Torres (Nicola Correia-Damude), Deputy Liv Baker (Elizabeth Bowen) is getting ignored even more by the sheriff (Corey Reynolds). When SciFi Vision recently spoke with Bowen, she said that her character was starting to gain ground with the sheriff, but it comes in fits and starts. In our most recent interview with the actress, we asked her if it is a matter of confidence with Liv.

“She may have some insecurities around not being listened to by people,” explained Bowen to SciFi Vision, “But I do believe she very much has the courage of her convictions. She's very confident in her ability to parse information, I think, and puts everything in the right box. So, I would say the confidence issue is more in just having to maybe speak up on how she feels, even though you don't want to bring too much emotion into your job. She has to sort of have the confidence in the fact that eventually people will listen.”

That being said, Liv moves ahead with investigating without the sheriff in tonight’s episode. “She's quite sure that some of her suppositions, some of her theories, have legs. So, she does decide to go up with Asta (Sara Tomko) and basically confirm what she's pretty sure she already knows to be fact,” teased the actress.

Exclusive: Resident Alien's Sara Tomko on Asta's Guilt and More

***Note the following interview contains light spoilers for tonight's episode***

Sara TomkoTonight Syfy airs an all-new episode of Resident Alien. Recently on the series, Asta (Sara Tomko) killed a man to protect her alien friend Harry (Alan Tudyk), and she’s been dealing with the guilt. Can she forgive herself? “I think that that is going to be seen and felt by her for a little bit,” Tomko told SciFi Vision during an exclusive interview last week. “Forgiveness is so important, especially with self; that's one of the hardest things for us to do as humans is to forgive ourselves.”

Guilt and pain is part of being human, and in a recent episode, Harry took away Asta’s memory of the shooting to remove her pain without her permission, but a lot of it was selfish, because he didn’t like the way she was acting. He just didn’t comprehend what was happening, according to the actress. “I don't think he even understands what he did was wrong at all…I think he just wanted it to stop. I don't think he even thought twice about asking for permission consent or that she would be upset by it. In his mind, he did a good thing.”

She thinks, however, that it was innocent. “I don't think there was any malice or ill will,” said Tomko.

Video Interview: Corey Reynolds & Elizabeth Bowen on Torres Affecting the Status Quo

Corey Reynolds and Eilzabeth BowenRecently the cast of Resident Alien was joined by Nicola Correia-Damude, as Detective Lena Torres, when she came to Patience to investigate the murder of the man whom Asta (Sara Tomko) killed to save Harry (Alan Tudyk). Corey Reynolds, who plays Sheriff Mike Thompson, and Elizabeth Bowen, who plays Deputy Liv Baker, recently talked to SciFi Vision during a roundtable about how Torres' arrival in the town has upset the status quo between the two characters. “I think she comes in no holds barred, business as usual,” said Bowen of Torres. “Whether she is just oblivious to it or she just doesn't care, she completely upsets the apple cart between the two of us, and I don't even think…Sheriff Mike realizes how much she's upset the applecart. He's just thinking more I think about his reaction to her, like, ‘Who is this person?’ Whereas Liv is like, ‘No one's paying attention to me. No one's listening to me. Everyone's forgetting about me.’ I mean, you'll literally see sometimes where they actually forget she's even in the room with them, and that is incredibly upsetting to poor Liv.”

Reynolds felt the same. “I think in a lot of ways Mike meets his match,” added the actor. “Deputy Liv is his match in one way, but she's more flies with honey than detective Torres…I think in some ways, she sees herself very similar to I think how he sees himself, except I don't think she has the insecurities that Mike has. I think she's presenting as competent as she actually is.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Aaron Ashmore on the End of Locke & Key

Aaron AshmoreRecently the third and final season of Locke & Key premiered on Netflix and star Aaron Ashmore, who plays Duncan, spoke with SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview.

This season is lighter for Duncan. “He's planning his wedding,” he explained to SciFi Vision. “He's going to get married. At this point, I think, in the story, everything sort of settled down, and Tyler (Connor Jessup) is off kind of finding himself, but things have settled down and life is moving on. I think Duncan's very happy to have Brian (Milton Barnes) back and very happy to be getting married after all the craziness that happened in season two.”

Ashmore also talked about what he himself got out of working on the series. “Much like a lot of the other shows that I really enjoyed working on, I love the family element to it,” said the actor. “Obviously, there is literally a family with the Lockes, but also all of the other characters, how they all band together…how everybody sort of works together in this common goal…The shows that I work on and things that I like, that's usually what it comes down to are these amazing [characters] working together, but also the people that sort of bring it all together. That's what I would say I enjoyed the most out of it.”

He also told SciFi Vision that he was involved behind the scenes as well, and had been for quite some time. “I helped put the film together alongside Vincent Grashaw,” said the actor. “That's why I'm an EP on the film, as I helped secure a lot of the financing for the film. So, I was very adamant about continuing forth in the journey. Obviously, it's been seven years. We had a lot of different obstacles that we had to face in getting this movie made, but Vincent never gave up; I never gave up, and here we are seven years later, and it's pretty cool.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Director Scott Mann on Filming Fall at 2000 Feet

FallThe film Fall from Lionsgate, which was recently released in theaters,tells the story of best friends Becky (Grace Caroline Currey) and Hunter (Virginia Gardner) who are stranded after climbing to the top of an abandoned two-thousand-foot radio tower.

The idea for the film, according to director and co-writer Scott Mann, who spoke to SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview, came from a fear of heights. “Myself and cowriter Johnathan [Frank] were actually on a shoot on top of a football (ie soccer) stadium of all places for a film we were shooting in London,” said the director, referencing his film that is now on Netflix, Final Score. “I remember, we were just aware of being on this small space at a real height with a sheer drop, and just the kind of fear of that, and how there's something in that more than just a gag or a stunt. I mean, it felt like there was more to be had, with this fear of heights or fear of falling thing…I do think there is an inner kind of fear in all of us about height. It's a very universal fear that we have. So, it was trying to use that as the core of the whole film and build a whole film around it and really use that to its maximum kind of different tones, the different palette of fun you could have. So, that was what it started at. I guess that and the combination of wanting to do something that really used film theater for what it's supposed to be used for and really kind of stand out in that environment and immerse you in that environment. So, that kind of fed through it too.” Mann added that they wanted the experience to feel more like a theme park ride.
