SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Interview: The Walking Dead's Gilliam, Marquand, & Hamilton on the End of the Series

The Walking DeadTomorrow, the first of the final eight episodes of the hugely popular The Walking Dead premieres on AMC. While the main group of survivors deal with Hornsby and his men, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) heads to the Commonwealth to stop him from going after their families next. Meanwhile, members of the Commonwealth demand justice for what Pamila Milton (Laila Robins)'s son, Sebastian (Teo Rapp Olssen), has done.

Recently, in preparation for the episode, the press spoke with members of the cast about the final episodes and their thoughts about the end of the series.

SciFi Vision spoke with some of the actors about what their characters have taught them about themselves after spending so much time with them. For Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron, it’s the way his character continues to treat people. “I think, for me, [it’s] the diplomacy that Aaron has shown from beginning to end,” the actor told SciFi Vision. “I always asked Angela [Kang], our showrunner, ‘When is this guy going to go darker? When is he going to have that edge to him?’ because I couldn't understand why someone would be so nice in the midst of being beaten up by Rick (Andrew Lincoln), first of all, and then the Saviors and the Heapsters and all the groups he interacts with. They're not kind to him, and he just keeps choosing diplomacy. I think if I could choose one thing that has really helped me in my life, it's that diplomacy. I think it's really important, especially nowadays, with everything going on in the world.”

Interview: Call Me Kat's Mayim Bialik, Swoosie Kurtz, & Kyla Pratt on Character Growth & More in Season 3

***The following interview contains slight spoilers for 3.01***

Mayim Bialik, Swoosie Kurtz, and Kyla PrattLast night FOX’s comedy series, Call Me Kat, returned with all-new episodes for a third season. At the end of last season, Kat (Mayim Bialik) left on vacation to get away from the stress of running her business, leaving her best friend, Randi (Kyla Pratt) and Phil (Leslie Jordon) in charge. When Kat returns from her trip around the world, she’s decides to go with the flow and be more accepting, but she ends up becoming more confident and sticking up for what’s important to her, such as with keeping the business as a cat café rather than the juice bar Randi has turned it into in her absence.

According to Bialik, who spoke with SciFi Vision during a recent roundtable, the showrunners, Jim Patterson and Maria Ferrari, and producer Warren Bell thought this was a way to start fresh in some ways. “I think that they want[ed] a different take on these relationships,” she explained. “I think there's a lot more camaraderie that we're showing. We're exploring more of the relationships between the people, instead of having relationships with other things happening. Honestly, I was nervous about that, because I was thinking, ‘Gosh, it's just going to be boring, just all of us sitting [and] talking,’ and it's actually even, I think, [richer]. So, that's been a really wonderful shift. I think for Kat, again, Jim and Maria and Warren really wanted kind of a new start for her. I think having Randi take more ownership over the cafe and Kat having to kind of come into her own is giving us a little more space to expand the characters with a little bit more depth. I think that's sort of true all across the board,”

Exclusive Video Interview: The Serpent Queen Executive Producers on Bringing the Series to Life

Justin Haythe and Erwin StoffBased on the book Catherine de Medici: Renaissance Queen of France by Leonie Frieda, the Starz series The Serpent Queen gives a contemporary look at Catherine (Samantha Morton)’s rise to power, told through flashbacks from her teenage years through adulthood.

Recently, to promote the series, SciFi Vision spoke with writer and executive producer Justin Haythe and executive producer Erwin Stoff about creating the series.

According to Haythe, they became aware of the project ten years ago when friend and executive producer Francis Lawrence had read a piece about Catherine and told them about it. “It was really specifically about Catherine, Diane and Henry, this unusual love triangle,” Haythe told SciFi Vision, saying that the project went away, but then the book became available again. “The nature of the business had changed,” he explained, “because it really is a story you want to tell in an extended format. Suddenly, the television business had gotten to where it was, and and Francis and Erwin said, ‘Hey, it's available again, what do you think? Have a read.’ I did, and I immediately saw this possibility of telling a singular story of a particular tone, a particular voice, and one that was apt for our times.”

Exclusive Video Interview: The Serpent Queen's Liv Hill on Playing a Young Catherine de Medici

Liv HillTonight, Starz airs an all-new episode of the historical drama, The Serpent Queen. The series is a contemporary take on the rise to power of Catherine de Medici, told through flashbacks from her teenage years and through adulthood. Young Catherine is played by actress Liv Hill, with Samantha Morton playing the elder Catherine.

Hill admitted that playing Catherine de Medici was a bit daunting once she learned more about her. “I didn't know who she was beforehand, to be honest,” the actress told SciFi Vision during a recent interview. “Then, when I read about her, and I realized her notorious, infamous reputation as a sort of evil queen…it was a gift of a character to play. Also, the idea of playing Samantha Morton young was also a little bit overwhelming.”

Exclusive: Recipes for Love and Murder's Kylie Fisher

Kylie FisherAcorn TV’s Recipes for Love and Murder, which is based on the book series by Sally Andrew and was adapted for television by Karen Jeynes, takes place in a small town in South Africa. When a woman who writes advice columnist Tannie Maria (Maria Doyle Kennedy) ends up murdered, Maria and her colleague, journalist Jessie September, played by Kylie Fisher, partner up to find answers, against police advice. Can they track down the killer before it’s too late?

Recipes for Love and Murder was the first big role for costar Fisher, who spoke recently with SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview. The star didn’t read the book until after doing her role research so she could create her own version. “I kind of didn't want to initially read it,” said Fisher, “because the book is different to the adaptation, and I didn't want to get a preconceived notion of the character from the book. So, as we were doing filming, I was reading the book, and I was like, ‘This is what [Sally Andrew] says about the character, and this is what Karen’s written. Where does my understanding of the character also meet with these two versions of the story?”

The actress also pulled from her real life to find Jessie. “I identify with Jessie and the fact that we're both from the same racial background as well,” she told the site. “I didn't grow up in a small town; I grew up in Dubai, but my family is from South Africa, and we came back every single year.”

Video Interview: Chicago P.D. Star Marina Squerciati Hints at What’s Next for Burzek

Jason Beghe and Marina SquerciatiNBC’s Chicago P.D. returned for its tenth season Wednesday night, picking up about two weeks after last season’s finale. The premiere focused almost entirely on Hank Voight’s (Jason Beghe) reaction to the violent death of his CI, Anna Avalos (Carmela Zumbado), in the Los Teminos case. It was an incredibly tense episode that had viewers on the edge of their seats, but it didn’t leave much time for other storylines. So, Burzek shippers will have to wait at least another week to learn what’s next for the on-and-off couple.

At the end of last season, Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger) offered to give Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) a house – his childhood home! – where they could raise her adopted daughter, Makayla. But Kim hasn’t accepted the offer and we have no idea what she’s thinking. It could be an ideal home for her and Makayla, or it could upset the balance of Kim and Adam’s platonic co-parenting relationship, which is very strong.

Just before the premiere, Squerciati told SciFi Vision that we can expect Kim’s answer soon, perhaps as early as episode two. Check out the video of our interview below and watch Chicago P.D. Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC or on Peacock.

Exclusive Video Interview: Reboot's Keegan-Michael Key

Keegan-Michael KeyIn Reboot, which premiered Tuesday, Hulu decides to revive and update a fictional sitcom from the early 2000s, “Step Right Up,” reuniting the dysfunctional cast. Eager to restart their careers, but full of insecurities and hangups, the performers try to find their way as they learn how much things have changed.

The series comes from the mind of Modern Family’s Steve Levitan, which was what really attracted star Keegan-Michael Key, who plays Reed Sterling, to the project. “[It was] the pedigree of Steve Levitan really more than anything,” the actor told SciFi Vision during a recent exclusive interview. “When we first discussed the show at the beginning, I was like, Modern Family is such a bonafide solid show that I [want] to be involved with something that would be of that caliber.”

It isn’t just the showrunner that makes the job enjoyable, however. “I would say the easiest thing, really, is that I have such a wonderful collaborative cast to work with, and that makes almost everything else easier,” said Key.

Interview: Chicago Med's Jessy Schram on What Season 8 Brings for Hannah

Chicago MedAre you ready, Chicago fans? Tonight’s the night you’ve been waiting for!  All three shows - Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD – air their season premieres beginning at 8/7c on NBC. To celebrate the triple whammy, cast from the three shows sat down yesterday for a series of rapid-fire interview panels.

SciFi Vision asked Chicago Med stars Nick Gehlfuss (Dr. Will Halstead) and Jessy Schram (Dr. Hannah Asher) about the season-ending fire at Will’s apartment building. The new episode is ominously titled “How Do You Begin to Count the Losses.” Is everyone OK, and will the incident affect former addict Hannah’s recovery?

When we left her, Hannah “is in a really healthy mindset,” Schram reminded us, “and is doing the work to be in a recovered space.”  However, there will be ramifications – avoiding spoilers, both Gehlfuss and Schram referred to post-fire “complications” for Hannah. And when it comes to complications, said Schram, “what’s going to be hard for Hannah is that her past is always catching up with her.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Showrunner Martin Gero Talks Quantum Leap, Premiering Tonight on NBC

Martin GeroTonight, NBC premieres the anticipated new Quantum Leap series. The series picks up some thirty years after Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) disappeared after stepping into the Quantum Leap accelerator. A new team has been put together, led by physicist Ben Song (Raymond Lee), to bring the project up to date and figure out what went wrong originally. When Song makes an unauthorized leap without telling anyone, the team, including his fiancé Addison (Caitlin Bassett), who serves as his helpful hologram, is left to figure out why.

The series may technically be a sequel, but according to showrunner and executive producer Martin Gero, who recently talked to SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview, you don’t need to see the original to enjoy and understand the new series. “The great news is, you don't need to do that at all,” said Gero. “Anything that you wouldn't understand will be explained in the body of the episode. So, [it’s] not like a here are the ten episodes you should watch of Quantum Leap to understand it; we're going to do all that work for you.”

He did add, however, that there would be some Easter eggs for fans of the original.
