I also have chosen to include some interviews from press events that are only open to a select few and not the general press or public, such as convention press rooms and everything from the Syfy Digital Press Tours, set tours, etc. as although they are not entirely exclusive, they do contain exclusive photos and sometimes videos that no other site has (I have started to mark some of these as "Spotlight" as opposed to "Exclusive, but they still remain in this category"), or may be about my own experiences only at the events.

Exclusive Interview: A Discovery of Witches’ Teresa Palmer Says Goodbye to Diana Bishop

***The transcript portion of the following interview contains spoilers for the series finale***

Teresa PalmerBased on the bestselling novel of the same name by Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches tells the story of forbidden love in the world of witches, vampires, and daemons. Last week SciFi Vision caught up with series star, Teresa Palmer, before the eagerly-awaited finale, to talk about Diana Bishop’s final journey and what it means to the actress.

Palmer worked closely with Harkness through the seasons on building Diana, and it really helped her to find her footing as the character. “It was so empowering for me,” said Palmer. “She was like, ‘You are Diana; that's why we cast you. I chose you, because of your spirit, your essence.’

The actress continued that Harkness put a lot of herself in the character, and the two of them see a lot of each other in themselves, but not when it comes to academia, which caused Palmer some doubt. The author was quick to reassure her, however. “I’d start obsessing about the little things,” said the actress. “…I think I was vulnerable, because I kept saying, ‘Well, I'm not an academic, and I don't find pleasure in academics the way you do…’ She was like, ‘But it's all in you. It's all there. Just lean into it.’ I think that that felt very liberating.”

During the interview Palmer also talked about how much Diana has grown since the beginning of the series. “When we see her in the first season, she's still running away from who she truly is and really living a life that doesn't serve her in any way; I can tell by looking back at that first season. I was like, ‘Oh, she's such a shell of herself, of who she ultimately becomes.’…It's not until even midway through the second season, where I'm like, ‘Oh, she's really landing into a place where she's empowered and sitting in her authenticity,’ which is really lovely to watch.

Exclusive Video Interview: Raised by Wolves’ Creator Guzikowski & Stars Engelbrecht & Jones Talk Season 2

Raised by WolvesRecently, HBO Max premiered season two of Raised by Wolves. In the second season of the series, Mother (Amanda Collin) and Father (Abubakar Salim) and the human children settle in the new atheistic colony in the tropical zone of Kepler 22 b.

During a recent exclusive interview with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision, creator Aaron Guzikowski talked a bit about the atheist collective colony and teased a bit about what’s to come. “There's a lot more evidence here of the society that once existed on this planet, previously, this ancient civilization,” said Guzikowski, “and we're starting to get some little clues as to kind of what made that civilization tick, that in fact there was kind of this religious connotation to a lot of what was going on there. They're finding these strange scan cards, but they're too damaged to get the information off of them…They're finding the [cards] scattered all over the tropical zone, and they're trying to figure out what exactly it means.”

Video Interview: Reacher Star Alan Ritchson Hopes Fans Forget About the Physical Side of the Character

Alan RitchsonYesterday, Prime Video dropped the new Reacher television series a day early. The show is based on the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child and stars Alan Ritchson in the title role. In the book, the character is large and imposing, and the actor had to train for the role. “I've, I've tried to stay fit most of my career,” said Ritchson to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision during a recent interview, “but I walk around like 205 usually, and [they wanted me] to be 235 for this. So, during the pandemic when you can't get to a gym, because everything’s shut down, it made it interesting. So, I was fortunate enough to be able to build a little mini gym in [our] living room and our dining room…I worked out five days a week, once we got a little closer to production.”

The actor also told the site they did a lot of fight training. “We worked with knives. I was able to recall some of my work on Hunger Games: Catching Fire, where I worked with a dagger extensively and got really good at it. So, it was fun to be able to sort of recall that, but fighting with a bicycle tire and a necktie was new to me. So, it took a little work, but the stunt team was patient with me while we built those fights, and I think they came out great.”

She makes me laugh like nobody else, and we just get along so well, and it's so easy when we're in scenes together.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Reacher's Malcolm Goodwin

Malcolm GoodwinTomorrow, the new series Reacher, based on the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child, premieres on Prime Video. In the series, Malcolm Goodwin plays the role of Captain Oscar Finlay, Chief of Detectives at the Margrave Police Department, who ends up working with Reacher (Alan Ritchson). Goodwin is probably best known for his role as Detective Clive Babineaux in the CW series iZombie. According to the actor, who recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview, that role did affect the way he portrayed Finlay. “It definitely did inform this character in terms of just, [how] it felt like I was a police officer,” said Goodwin. “It felt like I really did it; it felt like I had a history of it. I'm not gonna lie…I feel like I saw the good seventy-two cases or whatever it was murder cases! So, yeah, just going through that, iZombie did help inform in terms of the knowledge that Finley would have going into the chief detective position.”

Video Interview: Resident Alien Showrunner Chris Sheridan Teases What’s to Come for Season 2

Chris SheridanTomorrow, Syfy airs an all-new episode of its hit series, Resident Alien. In the second season of the series, rather than still trying to leave the planet, Harry’s goal is to protect Asta (Sara Tomko) from the other aliens who may be coming. During a recent roundtable interview, showrunner Chris Sheridan talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision about Harry’s need to learn empathy and to care about others. “He doesn't really care about everyone else dying,” said Sheridan. “He’s fine with that…It's just Asta he wants to protect, so journey-wise, what he needs to realize is what Asta is trying to hammer into him: you can't just be okay with me surviving. What about everybody [else]?...Harry doesn't understand the concept of that. He hasn't learned empathy yet; he hasn't learned this connectivity between human beings yet that we all - most of us - know inherently just by being kids and growing up in the playground.

“...So, his journey, especially in season two, is to learn empathy and to learn to love and to appreciate and care about people outside of Asta.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Astrid & Lilly Stars Morrison & Aucoin Talk Body Positivity & More

Samantha Aucoin and Jada MorrisonTonight, Syfy premieres its new series, Astrid & Lilly Save the World. In the series, after accidentally opening a portal, monsters start coming through, and its up to high school students Astrid, played by Jana Morrison, and Lilly, played by Samantha Aucoin, to stop them, all while surviving high school.

While removing the threat of the monsters, Astrid and Lilly both get super powers, albeit strange ones. Astrid is able to smell approaching monsters, and Lilly’s leg starts hurting when they’re near. Morrison, while talking to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision during an exclusive interview, teased that their powers may change. “I can say that [powers] grow, as we do as people,” said the actress.

In disposing of the monsters, Astrid and Lilly get into some quite gross situations. “We've definitely touched some not so nice things,” said Aucoin during the interview. “They made these really realistic organs that were inside the monsters and we had to hold them out and dig our nails into them and squeeze goo out of them…It was not appetizing at all.”

Exclusive: Alex Kingston Talks A Discovery of Witches & Doctor Who

***The following interview contains spoilers for 3.01***

Alex KingstonSaturday, an all-new episode of the series A Discovery of Witches premieres in the US. In the third season of the series, which is based on the third book in the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness, Diana (Teresa Palmer) and Matthew (Matthew Goode) return from time walking in Elizabethan England to continue their quest for the Book of Life.

Alex Kingston, who plays the role of Sarah Bishop, Diana’s aunt, didn’t know anything about the novels before taking on the role and was a little bit skeptical at first, but once she started reading, she was intrigued. “I thought it was a very good kind of parallel to the lives and the world that we find ourselves in as humans,” said Kingston during an exclusive interview with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision, “which is sort of the disparity between ethnicities, the lack of inclusion, the fear in some cases of what people might consider different cultures, and that was all represented within the creature world as well. So, I thought that that was actually an interesting take to follow.”

One of the things the actress really enjoyed about the role of Sarah was that she could just let it all go. “She's sort of in sloppy clothes,” the actress explained, “…It was kind of fab. I didn't have to care about looking ‘just so’ like so many characters for women, you know, executives or whatever; their hair has to be straightened, and they have to look super ‘on.’ I didn't need to for Sarah, so that was actually fabulous.”
