SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Exclusive Video Interview: From's Pegah Ghafoori

Pegah GhafooriIn season two, the MGM+ thriller From is amping up the terror, and right now there’s probably nobody more terrified than Fatima (Pegah Ghafoori). Newcomers are stretching the community’s resources, people are dying almost every night, her fiancée Ellis (Corteon Moore) was accidentally stabbed, and oh yeah, Fatima thinks she might be pregnant. The only thing scarier than living in the town would be bringing a child into this world, but thus far no one has ever had a baby, and it’s not clear if it’s even possible to get pregnant.

In a video chat with SciFi Vision, actress Pegah Ghafoori (Hello Au Revoir) shared her thoughts on where Fatima is mentally and emotionally coming into episode 207 (“Belly of the Beast”).  

“I think in the back of her mind, there's still a shoe to drop,” Ghafoori suggested. “Whether that is the town going ‘JK, you're actually not pregnant, but I'm so glad you got your hopes up,’ or it's that she is pregnant and it's a gift from the town.

Exclusive Video Interview: From Cast Members on the Mysteries of Season 2

FromFrom, which airs on MGM, takes place in a town that traps anyone who arrives. The residents struggle daily to survive the nightmares of the town, including the terrifying creatures that come out to hunt at night. Season two has brought with it a group of new residents from a bus that arrived from Grand Rapids, but also a bunch of new horrors as truths and origins of the town start to come to light.

In last week’s episode, Ellis (Corteon Moore) was accidentally stabbed and needed a blood transfusion from his father, the sheriff (Harold Perrineau). Having contracted some kind of strange disease from a man he met in the previous episode, Sheriff Boyd was reluctant to let Kristi (Chloe Van Landschoot), the town doctor, use his blood. However, in a surprising turn, he transferred his blood into one of the creatures (Jamie McGuire), which seemed to actually kill it, perhaps giving them a fighting chance against the them for once.

Video Interview: Sylvester Stallone & Family on Their New Reality Series, Premiering Today

The Family StalloneToday, the new reality series The Family Stallone premieres on Paramount Plus. The series stars the three-time Academy Award Nominee Sylvester Stallone and his wife and three daughters, Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet. The series offers an inside look at the famous family for the first time.

SciFi Vision recently spoke to the Stallone family about creating the reality series. In the premiere episode, Sistine plays a prank on her father with the help of her family. SciFi Vision was curious about the best prank someone in the family played.

“I would say there's so many incredible pranks coming in the later episodes,” Stallone teased. “I think the one they pulled on me was the cruelest one of all. I don't know how I could top that one, except like, ‘Hey, come visit me. I'm in a funeral home,’ and I like pop up. Like, ‘Fooled you!’ I mean, how do you top that? But the best pranks are yet to come in the other episodes.” 

A reality show can get pretty personal, so SciFi Vision also questioned if that was something they ever worried about. For Scarlet, the youngest of the three daughters, it was at first. “I feel like a lot of information, how we’ve told our feelings, and stuff like that, I feel like was kind of outside my comfort zone at first,” she admitted to the site. “But then at the same time, you're, you have to think that you're speaking to a bunch of, you're talking to a bunch of people that can also relate to you as well. So you're not alone. So at first, it was scary, but then you get used to it and realize that it's normal problems.”

Fear the Walking Dead Cast Members Elfman, Evangelista, & David are Surprised by Their Characters' Resilience

Fear the Walking DeadTonight, the eighth and final season of Fear the Walking Dead premieres on AMC. After Madison (Kim Dickens) and Morgan (Lennie James)’s attempted rescue of Baby Mo didn’t go as planned, they and the other characters are brought to the island and living under the rules of PADRE.

Recently, cast members Jenna Elfman, who plays June, Christine Evangelista, who plays Sherry, and Karen David, who plays Grace, talked to the press about the upcoming final season, where SciFi Vision asked about how their characters’ journeys surprised them through the series. For all three of them, it was the characters’ reactions to the pain and hardships they’d faced.

“For me, I think I was most surprised at the courage that would burst out of her,” Elfman told the site, “this bravery and wild courage from so many moments, that she would spring forward out of all of this pain into very strong swings of integrity and courage, or even lashing out at different times…I think it was always like a good corollary to the pain when you lose a child and what that does to you, and the efforts at not being a victim, the thrust [of] trying to pull yourself outward and be more dangerous to your environment than your environment has imploded you into your own health. So, those sort of push and pulls from the pain and back into the world always stimulated and surprised me, and I was always pleasantly surprised.”
