SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Exclusive Video Interview: Manifest’s Ty Doran & Luna Blaise Talk Season 4

ManifestRecently, the series Manifest came to Netflix for the first half of the fourth and and final season. The series follows passengers of Flight 828 who returned home from their flight, only to find five years had passed in their absence.

At the end of last season, after the tail fin of the plane had been returned to the ocean, Cal Stone, who previously disappeared when touching it, returned having suddenly aged five years. 

Ty Doran, who plays the older version of Cal, did take into account how actor Jack Messina previously played Cal when he took on the role. “I thought a lot about that,” the actor told SciFi Vision during a recent interview. “I mean, the writers helped me out a lot in the dialogue this season. It gave me a lot to hold on to…I am very in awe of his work and tried to steal as much as I could to make that transition as seamless as possible. Everybody on set, on the creative team, and in the crew, everybody was super helpful in figuring out like…this is how he said this line before. Like, ‘it's all connected’ is a favorite phrase of Cal’s. We say it a few times and just getting the cadence and paying homage to what comes before, it's very important in telling sort of a seamless story and keeping that mythology of the show intact.”

Interview: Stars of Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire on Season 1 Finale

***Note that the following interview contains spoilers for the season one finale***

Interview with the VampireTonight, AMC aired the season finale of Interview with the Vampire, based on the novel by Anne Rice. In the episode, during a Marie Gras ball, Louis (Jacob Anderson) and Claudia (Bailey Bass) move forward in their plans with Lestat (Sam Reid). In Dubai, a reveal is made.

Recently, the cast reflected on what their characters have taught them about themselves this season to SciFi Vision during a roundtable with the press.

Playing Louis has made Anderson look at his own past a little different. “I think Louis really made me think about how I reflect on my own past,” explained the actor, “how I think about my own sort of participation in my own version of history. I think he's made me slightly reframe events in my life that I kind of thought went one way, and actually, they were more nuanced than maybe I had sort of thought of them before…I found the whole thing really cathartic.”

Sam Reid, who plays the vampire Lestat, talked about his character being a “train wreck” and making bad situations worse. “He sees something unfolding in a negative way,” said Reid, “and instead of probably taking the moral ground or the adult perspective and admitting fault or having a full set of empathetic reactions to the person [he’s] operating with, [he continues] to make it worse. It's almost like he can't help but make the situation worse for himself. It's almost like a compulsion…I think, in terms of myself, I think, being able to stop and to just to leave it, to leave a situation and to just go, ‘You don't need to defend yourself here. You don't need to prove your point. You don't need to do these things; you can just stop and leave it and listen to the other person.’ I think that's hopefully a lesson I can learn from.”

There's Always a Cost - The Walking Dead 11x23, Family - Review

The Walking Dead“There's a lot of shock in it. There's a lot of tension in it. I think [the audience] might feel angry on behalf of our characters. It's a frigging intense finale. It just goes, goes, goes.”
--Scott Gimple on the finale of The Walking Dead, interview with Entertainment Weekly, 9 November 2022The Walking Dead, interview with Entertainment Weekly, 9 November 2022

The Walking Dead has been about family since the pilot episode, in which Rick Grimes wakes up alone in hospital and begins to search for his wife and son. It is a show about the families we lose, we find, and we choose; it is a show about what it means to be a family. “We don’t leave them,” Lydia sobs at one point this week. “They need us.” That has always been the philosophy of this group of survivors, and it is starkly contrasted, in 11x23, with that of Pamela Milton, who is willing to sacrifice thousands of her people to a horde of walkers in order to save a privileged few.

While we see our heroes put this belief into practice during the episode, the same cannot be said of the writers for season 11. In “Family”, Connie tries to save a fellow citizen at her own risk while trapped in a shoot-out at Union Station. Lydia gets bitten and ultimately loses an arm trying to help Elijah to safety. And Judith, of course, saves Maggie and takes Pamela’s bullet herself. Being a family, this episode reminds us, means sticking together, making sacrifices, and never abandoning one another. But in its service to the plot, the universe, and the multitude of characters in the show at this point, The Walking Dead itself has left too much out, and too many people behind.

Video Interview: Circuit Breakers' Cole Keriazakos & Maz Jobrani

Circuit BreakersToday, the half-hour futuristic anthology series Circuit Breakers premieres on Apple TV+. The series tackles issues through a sci-fi lens in a way that kids can relate to. Often, the use of the technology leads to chaos.

In the fourth episode entitled “Entangled,” during a school presentation, Principal Young (Maz Jobrani) and student Seth (Cole Keriazakos) accidentally switch bodies.

To promote the series, Jobrani and Kerizakos talked to the press during a recent roundtable. The two talked to SciFi Vision about what each of their characters taught them about themselves. For the elder of the two, it was about his love of being on set. “I've been touring a lot as a stand up, and that's kept me busy,” Jobrani told the site, adding that he wants to be involved in quality projects, which he considers Circuit Breakers.

Keriazakos, on the otherhand, talked about the collaborative process of working on the series. “It was just a combination of the perfect actors, the perfect cast, the perfect crew, and the perfect producers,” the actor told the site. “I love the director, too. I feel like everyone worked together really well to create this amazing show.”

Exclusive Video Interviews: Cast & EP Talk Season 3 of Mythic Quest

Mythic QuestThis new season of Mythic Quest promises to be one for the books. Premiering today on Apple TV +, fans can expect to see lots of different pairings forming, all of which will have an impact on the season as a whole.

“There are so many fun pairings in this season in particular,” Ashly Burch revealed. “Jesse [Ennis] and I and Charlotte, who plays Poppy, have a really fun storyline that I'm excited for people to see where we go to brunch.”

Naomi Ekperigin and Danny Pudi agree when it comes to their own characters of Carol and Brad. “Season three of Mythical Quest is wild,” Ekperigin told SciFi Vision “Characters are forming new alliances. Somehow Carol decides to hang out with Brad, which she should never do.”

While the season was fun for the cast, filming still came with some challenges. “The biggest challenge was kind of a weird challenge that we just put on ourselves, because we started shooting things really quickly,” Ennis said. “We know our characters. We know the tone of the show; we know how we shoot the show. So, what would usually take seven days started to take three or four days, and then it was almost like we wanted to beat our record. So, it wasn't like anyone was sitting in the corner being like, ‘Guys we have to make our day so that we shoot a three-day episode,’ but…there was just this momentum and this rhythm with which we were shooting that was really fun, and challenging and we got ahead of ourselves.”

Exclusive Video Interviews: EP & Cast on The Calling, Now Streaming on Peacock

The CallingThe new series, The Calling, premieres today on Peacock. The series, which comes from creator David E. Kelley, was adapted from the Avraham Avraham novels by D.A. Mishani and follows NYPD Detective Avraham Avraham (Jeff Wilbusch) who is guided by his spirituality and has a way of connecting with others that allows him to see things that others may miss.

SciFi Vision spoke with the cast and executive producer, Matthew Tinker, Kelley’s producing partner, recently, to promote the series.

Although the series is an adaptation, there were certain things that had to be changed, according to Tinker, such as placing the series in Brooklyn. “[T]here's the saying of write what you know,” the producer told SciFi Vision. “So, the books take place in Tel Aviv. That's not a place I've lived; it’s not a place David [Kelley]'s lived. I think to tell this as authentically as possible, we found an actor who was very much Avraham and could authentically portray Avraham in Jeff, but in setting it, we needed to be able to write about a place that we were familiar with…We have tons of different perspectives and voices on the show in the writers room and the producers and the various directors we've had that it should feel like a melting pot of perspectives and voices, but at the end of the day, to kick things off, both David and I looked at Brooklyn and felt like this is the place where we can tell this story authentically and efficiently.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Showrunner Simon Barry Discusses Season 2 of Netflix's Warrior Nun

Warrior NunAfter over two years of waiting by fans, today marks the anticipated return of Warrior Nun to Netflix. SciFi Vision spoke with showrunner Simon Barry earlier in the week about what fans can expect.

Season one of Warrior Nun revolved around trying to free Adriel (William Miller). They’ve now discovered that Adriel was not an angel as they had believed, and this season focuses on Ava (Alba Baptista) and the other nuns of the Order of the Cruciform Sword defeating him. “We really wanted to have Ava be given an adversary that was worthy of her and worthy of the situation that she finds herself in and is embracing as a character,” Barry told SciFi Vision, “because Ava in season one kind of got over this situation she found herself accidentally in and decided that this was a life of purpose and a life that would have meaning. She found love and companionship with her sisters, and so now she has someone to fight for. It wasn't just about her anymore and being selfish. It was about her being selfless. So, we needed season two to really be the expression of that, and in doing so, we needed to give her something that she could conceivably give everything up for if she had to, because that's ultimately what the hero does.”

The World is Dark and Broken - The Walking Dead 11x22, Faith - Review

The Walking Dead“[The Walking Dead] ends with a really definitive conclusion for both the series and then each individual character.”
--Scott Gimple, interview with Entertainment Weekly, 25 October 2022

With only two episodes to go before the end of the series, it feels like The Walking Dead is somersaulting so unevenly through the convoluted Commonwealth plot that the show has little chance of sticking the landing. The season as a whole has been, at times, bewildering in its narrative choices, with dead ends (Leah’s arc) and sudden drop-offs (Oceanside) that frustrate any viewer who has been tuned in for more than one season.

“Faith” has as its focus Negan’s redemption arc. Ostensibly, the episode deals with questions around our faith in each other, our faith in the world, and our faith in ourselves. Maggie doubts her decision to bring Hershel Jnr into the world; Pamela fights to retain the support of the disillusioned Commonwealth citizens; and Mercer reveals a realignment of his loyalties. But, undoubtedly, the primary purpose of 11x22 is to move Negan’s story forward, towards his upcoming spinoff with Maggie.
