SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Exclusive Video Interview: Michelle MacLaren on Directing Shining Girls

The following interview contains slight spoilers for the premise of Shining Girls.

Michelle MacLarenToday, the new series, Shining Girls, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Lauren Beukes, premieres on Apple TV+. The series follows Kirby Mazrachi (Elisabeth Moss), who after a traumatic assault where her attacker was never found, is left in an ever-changing reality. Years after the attack, her world is upended when she realizes a recent murder victim suffered identical injuries to her own. Kirby, now an archivist working at a newspaper after putting her career on hold, enlists the help of reporter Dan Velazquez (Wagner Moura) to identify her attacker and understand the shifting world around her.

The eight-episode series is a thriller but also involves science fiction elements. Executive producer Michelle MacLaren, who also directed some of the episodes, loved the “genre bending” of the project, which was new for her. “I always feel it's fun to take on things I haven't done before that I find challenging and a little bit scary,” MacLaren told SciFi VIsion. “It had all those factors involved, and so I was very fortunate to say, ‘yes,’ and also it was Apple TV plus that was making it, who I love working with.”

Video Interview: The Wilds’ Sophia Ali, Shannon Berry, & Jenna Clause Tease Season 2

The WildsMay 6th marks the return of fan-favorite series The Wilds on Prime Video. The series follows a group of teens who crash land on a deserted island, but not by accident, but rather as part of an experiment. SciFi Vision recently took part in a roundtable to promote the series with stars Sophia Ali, who plays Fatin, Shannon Berry, who plays Dot, and Jenna Clause, who plays Martha.

With the popularity of the show, we asked the actresses if that put added pressure on them. Berry admitted that it does for her. “I definitely think there was kind of an expectation that I kind of put on myself,” said the actress. “…People have seen it now, and now, moving forward to shooting future seasons, knowing that people now know about our characters and they have an attachment to that, it is kind of scary to walk in and create a whole new story. You're like, ‘Oh, I hope that everyone kind of accepts this second part of the tale.’”

Clause agreed about the pressure, but thought it’s also had a positive. “Honestly, with that, it's just like a whole another group of support that wasn't there originally, because they didn't know each and every one of us yet…It's pressure, but it's just so much more support in my eyes really.”

Erana James and Mia HealeyMay 6th the highly anticipated second season of The Wilds comes to Prime Video. We recently chatted with series stars Erana James, who stars as Toni, and Mia Healey, who stars as Shelby, as part of a roundtable interview. Last season, Shelby finally admitted she was a lesbian and she and Toni became lovers. As such, the characters have become beloved by the LGBTQ+ community. We asked if this caused added pressure to getting that representation right. “I'm not sure if it's pressure,” said Healey. “It feels like something that I felt very privileged and honored to do…We just really respect that community and admire that community. I want to do these characters justice so that we can tell these stories that are meant to reach these people in an authentic way.”

Video Interview: The Wilds’ Sarah Pidgeon & Reign Edwards on Emotions & the Island’s Impact

Sarah Pidgeon & Reign EdwardsThe highly anticipated season two of The Wilds premieres on Prime Video on Friday, May 6th. Season one of the series followed a group of teenage girls stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash. At the end of last season, after being rescued, Leah (Sarah Pidgeon) discovered clues that proved her theory that the plane crash wasn’t an accident, which no one back on the island had believed.

During season two, while still on the island, Leah is still going through a lot with no one wanting to listen. This leads to some heavy scenes. During a recent roundtable interview, we asked the actress about connecting with that part of the character. “When you experience an emotion,” explained Pidgeon to SciFi Vision, “whether or not you're acting, your body doesn't know that you're acting. So, there were certainly some long days and some hard days, but the storytelling and the writing is so strong in the series that I feel like [it] does so much of the work for you. It really is just trusting in [that] and hoping that you're ready to be in that place and ready to be on the other side of it when you come out of it. I think it's just sort of really taking in everything this character has experienced. Everything [they’re] experiencing, it's so overwhelming, when you really just sit and think about it. I think it's not that hard to feel empathy for these characters and embody that emotion.”

Interview: Fear the Walking Dead's Jenna Elfman & Keith Carradine on What it Would Take to Leave the Tower

***The following interview contains slight spoilers for tonight's episode, 7.10***

Jenna Elfman and Keith CarradineIn tonight’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead, Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) ends up very sick from radiation, ultimately because of Strand (Colman Domingo) and the way he runs the tower. When speaking with cast members recently at a roundtable, we asked what it might take to get them to leave the tower and fight Strand. “I guess it's that feeling of [for] June, where can you do the most good, which situation?” Jenna Elfman, who plays the character, told SciFi Vision. “And it's so hard, because, I mean, if you're dead, you can't help anybody, and what kind of environment is out there? With how bad it's getting with Strand and progressively worsening, you start kind of looking at the ratio of like, compromise to benefit, and at a certain point, is it worth exposing yourself and going out there? Are there pockets where you can survive? Is that less bad than the feeling of a slow death by your integrity of watching this person do these things to people and how contagious the toxicity is?...Ultimately, is it worse to stay? Is it worse to go?...What starts happening that starts shifting those viewpoints with June and her integrity and stuff, that is a big dilemma.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Fivel Stewart on why Roar is "a Dream Come True"

Fivel StewartApple TV Plus’ latest anthology series, Roar, is grabbing viewers with its feminist themes and all-star cast. Each of the eight chapters centers on an ordinary woman in an extraordinary situation, and each story is slightly dark and offbeat. The cast features Alison Brie, Cynthia Erivo, Betty Gilpin, Nicole Kidman, Issa Rae, Fivel Stewart, Meera Syal and Merritt Wever.

In chapter eight, “The Girl Who Loved Horses,” Stewart (Atypical) stars as Jane, a young woman who prefers the company of horses to people. When her father is killed, she grabs a gun and sets out to find the man responsible. It looks like a straightforward vengeance tale until Roar throws us a curveball with Millie (Kara Heyward, Moonrise Kingdom), a girly-girl who insists on tagging along.
