Recently Syfy premiered its new mythological series, Olympus
. Actor John Emmet Tracy, who plays the character of Pallas, recently talked to Jamie Ruby in a private interview about his work on the series.
The actor was surprised when he found out he got the role of Pallas. "I was working on two different projects, and they fell together quite closely, and I only had time in between the two for one audition, and it was for this project called Olympus
. It was really the only audition I'd done in about three or four months.
"So I did the audition, and then went on to the other project, and, you know, time went by, a couple of months. I never heard back about it, and it sort of faded from my memory.
"And then my agent called, and she said, "You've landed the role of Pallas." I paused, because I was trying to recall it; it had been so long. And when she told me Olympus
, I was really surprised, because at this point, I had not even had the chance to meet the show's creator, Nick Willing. The whole thing was off the tape I did with the casting directors.
