SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Exclusive Video Interview: K.D. Dávila and Carey Williams on Creating Emergency, Now in Theaters

Carey Williams and K.D. DávilaToday, Emergency comes to theaters. The film, written by K.D. Dávila and directed by Carey Williams, tells the funny but also emotional story of a group of college students, who during a night of partying, find an unconscious girl in their living room and must decide whether or not calling someone could make the situation worse for them.

The idea for the film, actually came from real life events, according to the writer. “The story is loosely inspired by stuff that has happened, actually, to several friends of mine,” Dávila told SciFi Vision during a recent interview, “having kind of a Goldilocks and the Three Bears moment of finding an unconscious white woman in your house who was intoxicated and having to figure out, ‘what do I do?’ I think that this is a situation where we wanted to make a movie that was about that phenomenon where people of color in America have a burden of having to think about how you're being perceived at all times.

Interview: Rosie Perez & Žjelko Ivanek Star in New Apple TV+ Thriller Now & Then

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

Rosie Perez and Žjelko IvanekAppleTV+ has a new crime series out today! Now & Then tells the story of five college friends whose lives are forever changed after a night of partying ends in tragedy. Twenty years later, they are reluctantly reunited by a threat that puts their seemingly perfect lives at risk. While the eight episodes center around a mysterious death, the story is really about youthful dreams and the reality of adulthood.

Set in Miami and shot mostly in Spanish, the series stars Rosie Perez (The Flight Attendant) and Zjelko Ivanek (12 Monkeys) as the lead detectives on a twenty-year-old case. Now & Then also features an exciting cast of international stars as the five friends still reeling from the bad decision they made  years ago: Marina de Tavira (Roma), José María Yazpik, Maribel Verdú, Manolo Cardona, and Soledad Villamil.  Together, these seven talented actors have dozens of award nominations and wins, far too many to mention here.

Perez and Ivanek are the only two actors who play themselves in both time periods. In 2000, Perez’s detective Flora Neruda is a rookie investigating a car crash with her partner, Ivanek’s older and more jaded John Sullivan. In 2020, that case still haunts Flora until a phone call brings all the players back together.

Exclusive Video Interview: The Wilds’ Rachel Griffith Talks Character Motivation

Rachel GriffithsSeason one of The Wilds follows a group of teen girls who survive a plane crash on a deserted island, however it’s quickly revealed to the audience that it’s part of an experiment run by Gretchen Klein, played by Rachel Griffiths, who also running a control group of boys, wants to prove that women can create a society superior to men.

In the second season, the audience gets to see the male perspective on the island. On the female side, there were two girls that were plants who knew about the experiment, one of whom died on the first day. Perhaps as to counterbalance that, one of the boys, DJ (Elliott Giarola), appears to the boys to get killed by a shark, but it is a ruse. In reality, DJ is actually Gretchen’s son, Devon.

Exclusive Video Interview: Winner of American Song Contest AleXa

AleXaLast Monday, the first season of American Song Contest came to a close with the announcement of the winner of the competition, AleXa, representative of Oklahoma, for her song “Wonderland.”

According to AleXa, who spoke with SciFi Vision recently, the song is a metaphor. “It’s basically kind of a metaphor for when you break free of that fantasy whenever someone is leading you on, and you're viewing them through these rose-tinted glasses, but then you realize, ‘Oh, no way; you're deceiving me. It's not healthy for me; let me escape it.’ So, we kind of wanted to represent that through the ropes that we use on stage as breaking free of things. But then also metaphorically, as we all know, [in] the story of Alice in Wonderland, the White Rabbit leads her through her journey of Wonderland, all these challenges and everything.”

Exclusive Interview: Why Didn't They Ask Evans' Amy Nuttall

Amy NuttallWritten and directed by Hugh Laurie, Britbox’s Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?, based on the Agatha Christie story, tells the tale of events that unfold after a dying man’s last words to vicar’s son Bobby Jones (Will Poulter) cause him to go on a crime-solving adventure with Lady Frankie Derwent (Lucy Boynton). During their quest, Frankie fakes a car crash on the property of wealthy Englishman Henry Bassington-ffrench (Miles Jupp) and his American wife, Sylvia, played by Amy Nuttall, who recently spoke to SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about working on the series. The actress hadn’t heard of the story before getting the role but knew right away that she wanted to be a part of the series. “I think I can speak for most actors that if you get a call about being in an Agatha Christie, you want to be involved whatever the part is,” said Nuttall. “Added to this, Hugh Laurie was at the helm! Hugh adapted it, directed, and also starred in it. What else is there to say?”

Being a period piece, the costume was very important to Nuttall when creating the character. “We chose warm colors as it was important that she came across as gentle, warm, approachable, and sometimes fragile,” explained the actress. “How you feel before you even open your mouth on a set is very important. Costumes play a massive part in helping you get in to character.”

Interview: Steven Moffat & David Nutter on Bringing The Time Traveler's Wife to Life

Steven Moffat and David NutterThe Time Traveler’s Wife, which is based on the novel of the same name by Audrey Niffenegger, premieres today on HBO and HBO Max. The series follows the love story of Henry (Theo James) and Claire (Rose Leslie) and their subsequent marriage. However, they have the unique problem that Henry is an unwitting time traveler.

Dealing with time travel, the story bounces back and forth between Claire meeting Henry at different ages, out of order, as she grows up. Executive producer and writer of the series Steven Moffat has some experience telling stories out of time, having been the showrunner on Doctor Who. “I don't think out of sequence is as difficult as people think it is,” he explained to SciFi Vision during a recent roundtable. “I think our memories work like that anyway. I mean, the story of your life is stored in your head. You know the story of your own life. Is it in sequence? If you think about your life, do you think of day one, day two, day three? No, you face a whole jumble of events that are ordered by priority or interest that are linked together, because they're about the same thing or happened in the same place. The story of your own life is nonlinear. Your life is linear, but the story of it is a mess, and, frankly, it would take you days to try and work out in what order anything happened…So, in a way, stories are like memories. There's a chaos of events, and the links between those events are about the subject or emotional or their context.”

Exclusive: Fear the Walking Dead’s Keith Carradine & Omid Abtahi

***The following interview contains spoilers for 7.12***

Keith Carradine & Omid AbtahiOn AMC’s most recent episode of Fear the Walking Dead, in order to get Strand (Colman Domingo)’s ear, John Dorie Sr. (Keith Carradine) planted a walkie on Howard (Omid Abtahi), Strand’s right hand man. Towards the end of the episode, although Strand knew the truth, he tasked Dorie with throwing Howard off the roof, and he complied, hoping that earning Strand’s favor would protect Baby Mo. However, in the end, knowing that Strand wouldn’t change, Dorie knocked him out and took Mo to Morgan (Lennie James), getting bit by a walker in the process.

Carradine, who found out before filming the back half of season seven about his character’s demise, recently talked to SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about Dorie’s motivations in the episode. “John had one over overriding concern, which was Mo and what is going to be best for that child,” explained Carradine. “I think that he could have gone either way, in terms of which side he came down on, in terms of who he was going to work with and cooperate with, as long as the end result was going to be the survival of that child under the best possible circumstances. So, I think that as he was dealing with Strand and Strand’s paranoia and obvious, complete unpredictability about how he might respond to any given situation. I think that he simply took every moment as it came and would make decisions in that time as to whether that was going to lead to him being able to do the best thing for the child. Then, finally, as you saw in the episode, when push came to shove, he had to make the choice that he made.”

Interview: Shining Girls’ Jamie Bell on Becoming Harper Curtis

Jamie BellShining Girls follows Kirby Mazarachi (Elisabeth Moss), who after a brutal attack, is left with reality always shifting around her. When she discovers a recent murder has connections to her assault, she teams up with reporter Dan Velasquez (Wagner Moura) to understand what is happening to her and to confront her past and her attacker.

Jamie Bell, who plays the part of Harper Curtis, Mazarachi’s attacker, talked to SciFi Vision at a recent roundtable about balancing what to pull from the book or the script and what to add creatively when creating his version of the character. The actor got some help from the author when deciding where he should pull from. “Lauren gave me a copy of her book,” said Bell, “and she wrote this incredible inscription that I'm desperately trying to remember, because it would make [her] sound very clever, and she is very clever, obviously…[It was] kind of like this idea that he needs control over everything, because the idea that things just happen randomly is terrifying. It's the idea that things are set in stone, and [yet] you can control them and bend and change them at your will. That's kind of like the power of a god or something. It really is like this incredible ability when you think about it, and the idea that it might just all be actually random and that you don't have control even over yourself - which he doesn't have control over himself - is just terrifying to him. I thought that was such an interesting description for her to put in the book.”

Video Interview: Creators Bob-Waksberg & Purdy Talk Meanings & Animation for Undone Season 2

Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate PurdyRecently, season two of Undone was released on Prime Video. The animated series, which comes from creators Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg, follows Alma (Rosa Salazar), who after a car accident finds herself with a unique connection to time.

Season one of Undone meant different things to different people and could be interpreted in different ways. Season two is no different. “I think everyone's gonna get something different from it,” Bob-Waksberg told SciFi Vision during a recent roundtable. “I mean, I would want people to go in, depending on where they are in their own journey, they're going to meet it at some point, and hopefully, they'll take something meaningful from it and continue along their journey.”

“There is no set message or one single takeaway that we want people to get,” he added. “I don't think it's a didactic show like that.”
