SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Exclusive Video Interview: Kosar Ali Costars in Starz' Dangerous Liaisons Prequel Series

Kosar AliWith its new series, Dangerous Liaisons, Starz takes on a well-known story from a fresh new angle. 

The show, which premieres tonight, was inspired by the 1782 novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, a tale of seduction, secrets, and revenge among the French aristocracy. The original story centers on the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, cruel ex-lovers who concoct a scheme to ruin other people’s lives and destroy themselves in the process. The novel has been adapted dozens of times including two recent feature films: 1988’s Oscar-winning Dangerous Liaisons and 1999’s Cruel Intentions.

The new show is not a remake or an adaption so much as it is a prequel, imagining how happy couple Camille and Pascal (Australian actors Alice Englert and Nicholas Denton) become vengeful social climbers determined to get what they want. Pascal is obsessed with reclaiming the title and fortune his stepmother stole from him, while Camille seeks power in a man’s world.

Exclusive Inteview: Shantaram’s Sujaya Dasgupta

Sujaya DasguptaShantaram is back and better than ever! There are a lot of incredible moments, especially for Kavita, played by Sujaya Dasgupta. Last week, we saw her begin to make her mark as a journalist, which is something that was a long time coming. It not only has an impact on her career, but on her as a person.

“It's the first time we properly see Kavita, who's my character, and how she plays in this whole series and the start of her journey in this whole show,” Dasgupta told SciFi Vision. “She kind of lands with a big kind of blast. She's really hungry for a story and very eager to make her mark as a journalist.”

She went on to say that Kavita will continue to dig around for more as the season goes on, all while she tries to prove herself in the world of journalism. “I'm really excited to see where she can go,” she added, although she admits that there are several places the writers can take the character, especially since we only saw glimpses of her in the books.

Exclusive Video Interview: Stars Ramirez & Long Tease Season 4 of Manifest

***The following interview contains slight spoilers***

ManifestTomorrow, Netflix releases the first half of season four of the fan favorite Manifest. The series follows passengers of Flight 828 who not only returned home to find that five years had passed, but started receiving visions of the future called callings.

One of the ones left behind during those five years to pick up the pieces and try to move on was Jared Vasquez (J.R. Ramirez), fiancé of Michaela Stone (Melissa Roxburgh), who was on the flight. This season, which picks up two years after the events of season three, he really balances the duty of his job at the NYPD with helping Michaela and the other 828 passengers. “He's put his job on the line for Michaela over and over and over again; this woman will always have a piece of his heart,” Ramirez told SciFi Vision during a recent interview. “He's tried to move on countless times…Over the two years, I feel like there's been a sense of maybe reflection that he's taken to work on himself and grow up and just accept what he has and what this life looks like with or without her. There's a sense of kind of calmness that you see that you'll see now…within the mix of all the other stuff. Helping figure out the Death Date and being there for Ben (Josh Dallas) and the family trying to find baby Eden, obviously he’s a very integral part to all that with his detective work.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Manifest Stars Dallas & Roxburgh Talk Season 4, Premiering Tomorrow

ManifestTomorrow, fan favorite Manifest comes to Netflix. The series has followed passengers of Flight 828 who returned to their lives discovering that five years had passed. The passengers soon realized they might be meant for something greater than themselves as they started to get “callings,” or guided visions of future events, some of them coming to believe that there is a death date coming for them if they don’t use their knowledge to help others and change things around.

At the end of season three, misguided passenger Angelina (Holly Taylor) killed Grace Stone (Athena Karkanis) and kidnapped baby Eden. This season, Ben (Josh Dallas) mourns the loss of his wife, but won’t give up hope in finding his daughter. The rich script made it easy for Dallas to tap into that darkness and grief. “Jeff Rake and our brilliant writers have created such a rich landscape for us to play around and tap into,” Dallas told SciFi Vision during a recent interview. “All those things were there for me to embrace and take into myself, just the idea that his wife was murdered, his daughter was kidnapped, and his son has grown older, so he misses out on more of his years. It was all devastating and not hard to tap into the melancholy and the emotionality of all that.”

Exclusive Video Interview: The Peripheral’s JJ Feild & T’Nia Miller

JJ Feild and T'Nia MillerThe new science fiction thriller, The Peripheral, recently premiered on Prime Video. The series, based on the William Gibson novel, stars Chloë Grace Moretz as Flynne Fisher, a young woman living in 2032 trying to hold together her family – her blind mother and her brother, ex-marine Burton (Jack Reynor). Besides working at a 3D printing shop, Flynne plays VR games for hire to help players level up to earn money to pay for her mother’s expensive medicine. While beta testing out a new VR headset, Flynne finds herself in a thrilling futuristic London but soon realizes that it isn’t virtual reality at all. Someone in London seventy years in the future has found a way to make a connection to the past, and Flynne soon discovers that life as she knows it is in danger.

JJ Feild, who plays the character of Lev Zubov, and T’Nia Miller, who plays Cherise Nuland, are key players – and potentially obstacles - that Flynne meets in the future. The two talked to SciFi Vision recently about Lev and Cherise's rather tumultuous relationship in the series.

“[They’re] part of a three-way power structure, and there's a great respect and admiration,” Miller told SciFi Vision. “They sort of lean on each other slightly in order for things to work. So, [he’ll hold his] corner, and I'll hold mine. Hopefully, it's sort of aligned, and when it doesn't, there's a problem.”

Exclusive Video Interview: The Computer Accent: Featuring Grammy-Nominated Band Yacht on Creating Their Album with Artificial Intelligence

YachtThe new documentary from filmmakers Sebastian Pardo and Riel Roch-Decter, The Computer Accent, follows the journey of the innovative and boundary-pushing band YACHT, as they attempt something unique: handing over creative control of their album to artificial intelligence. Working with researchers in the field, the group uses cutting edge machine-learning to create a one of a kind collaboration between humans and machine in all aspects of the creative process, including music, lyrics, artwork, videos, and more.

Recently, SciFi Vision talked to the musicians of the Grammy-nominated dance-pop band about their ground-breaking journey creating their album Chain Tripping. The spark of the idea first came from band member Jona Bechtolt. “I've always been interested in interrogating new technologies and trying to break them and trying to misuse them to expose what's hidden from us,” he explained. “…This was the newest tool available, and it seemed like it was going to be important for the future. I wanted to know more about it, and I wanted us to learn about it through making things with it.”

“If we want to understand something, really, the best way to do it for us is just to try to figure out how to make something with it,” added vocalist Claire L. Evans, “because then we're going to come up against all those challenges and have to solve all the problems and get a deeper understanding of the thing.”

Although it was something new, they weren’t worried, said Robert “Bobby Birdman” Kieswetter. “I think we’ve worked together enough on enough projects to know that…we're probably going to be able to be happy with [the album] just based on our working relationships and our history and past results…I don't think there was a concern that we wouldn't end up with something interesting at the end of it.”

Exclusive Video Interview: La Brea's McKenzie & Mirchandaney on Lucas & Scott's Friendship

Josh McKenzie and Rohan MirchandaneyIn season one of La Brea people were just getting to know each other and they didn’t all get along well. Lucas (Josh McKenzie) was especially abrasive. “When you're lumped in with a group of people you've only just met,” McKenzie told SciFi Vision during a recent interview, “you start looking for the tropes, the archetypes of these people, and you kind of don't look much further than that, because it's easier for you, in a survival sense…I think Lucas was the outsider from the get-go and made it pretty clear that he was the outsider and he had a lot of anger.”

Lucas especially butted heads with Scott (Rohan Mirchandaney). “I think Scott saw [Lucas] as somewhat of a bully with the way that he behaved…and I think Lucas kind of saw Scott as maybe weaker than what Scott actually is,” said McKenzie.

“I think a lot of the characters in La Brea can really dismiss Scott at times,” added Mirchandaney who also took part in the interview.

Exclusive Video Interview: Karen Pirie Star Lauren Lyle

Lauren LyleBased on the best-selling novels by Val McDermid, Karen Pirie, which drops today on BritBox, follows the title character, played by Lauren Lyle, a brilliant young detective who is given a promotion and tasked with reopening a murder investigation from a cold case which has been publicized recently on a controversial true crime podcast. In 1996 the body of Rosie Duff was discovered by three college students in St. Andrew’s graveyard. Suspicion fell on the students, but with a lack of evidence, the charges were dropped, and the case was never solved. When the case is reopened, someone will stop at nothing to prevent DS Pirie from uncovering the truth.

According to Lyle, who spoke with SciFi Vision during a recent interview, Pirie speaks her mind. “I felt like I connected quite well with her, [but] the hardest part probably is how direct she,” the actress told the site. “I think she's so fearless…She really says it how it is, and she's not got any niceties about it at all…but I did connect with her; I knew why she was doing what she was doing.”
