Exclusive Video Interview: From's Scott McCord Discusses Victor's Regression, his Drawings, the Season Finale & More

Scott McCordTomorrow, the second season finale of From arrives on MGM Plus. At the end of the most recent episode, Julie (Hannah Cheramy), Randall (A.J. Simmons), and Marielle (Kaelen Ohm) were attacked by cicadas that no one else could see, perhaps being what the nursery rhyme that appeared in a few characters’ nightmares foretold: “here they come; they come for three.” In the season finale, the town struggles to figure out the nursery rhyme and how to stop the “melody” to potentially save them.

Scott McCord plays the character of Victor on the series, a peculiar resident who has been in the town since he was a boy. Recently quite a lot was revealed about his childhood, and it seems that his past may play an important role in what’s to come.

Earlier in the week, McCord spoke with SciFi Vision about Victor, including crafting the character’s regression, playing someone who experienced such trauma, where Victor’s drawings actually come from, some of the challenges of not knowing what’s coming, what might be coming in the season finale, and more.

Interview: The Walking Dead: Dead City's Željko Ivanek, Gaius Charles, & Mahina Napoleon

The Walking Dead: Dead CityTonight, the new spinoff, The Walking Dead: Dead City, premieres on AMC. The series follows Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they venture into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan that has been cut off from the mainland, hatching a plan to rescue Maggie’s son, Hershel (Logan Kim), who has been kidnapped by The Croat, (Željko Ivanek), an evil man who Negan has dealt with before. Meanwhile, the two must also stay ahead of the marshal, Armstrong (Gaius Charles), who is trying to bring Negan to justice for crimes he has committed.

Ivanek and Charles, along with Mahina Napoleon, who plays the character of Ginny, recently spoke with the media about the new series.

Both Ivanek and Charles’ characters serve as adversaries for the heroes of the story. Charles views Armstrong as an obstacle mostly for Negan. “I want to bring him to justice for something,” the actor told SciFi Vision. “I think anybody that's watched the show really resonates with season seven, [with] Glenn (Steven Yeun) [and] a lot of the other stuff he's done. He's got a long rap sheet. I think it's cool that we're using law and order to try to reestablish this world, and that becomes a huge obstacle for Negan and for a lot of people in this world where right and wrong isn't clear.”

“I think for my character, The Croat, [he’s] being pulled back into a world that he left,” said Ivanek. “…I think that's the last thing he wants to do, unfortunately.”

“I think that Ginny brings out a different point of view for fans and a different side of Negan and Maggie,” added Napoleon. “So, I think Ginny creates this whole different perspective, because normally fans think that Maggie is the hero and Negan is a villain, but I think that Ginny brings a totally opposite, different perspective.”

Video Interview: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ Ethan Peck & Paul Wesley

Star Trek: Strange New WorldsThe second season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds begins today with episode 201, “The Broken Circle.” With Ethan Peck back as Spock and Paul Wesley cast as Kirk, fans are looking forward to the big moment when the franchise’s foremost characters meet for the first time.  In the runup to the season, Peck and Wesley sat down with a panel of journalists to talk about playing two legendary characters as young men whose enduring friendship is still in the future. 

Peck’s Spock is much younger than the previous versions (played by Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto) and he’s still trying to get to get a handle on his emotions.

“We will see Spock further explore his human side,” Peck told SciFi Vision, “and he does this in various situations and relationships as well.  I think it's very apparent in his interactions with Nurse Chapel (Jess Bush). There's a really wonderful situation where Spock can do nothing but face his human-ness that I'm very excited about.”

The pair also talked about their chemistry on and off-screen and gave plenty of insight into what motivates young Spock and Kirk. One writer even got Peck to talk about an early episode that highlights a “secret ability…that my friends don't even know [about].”

The Bad Guy – The Walking Dead: Dead City 1X01, Old Acquaintances Review

The Walking Dead: Dead City“[The Dead City] universe is going to tell the story of what happens when you lose someone [to murder]. Not just for the person who lost him, but the person who did it.”

--Eli Jorné, interview with SFX, June 2023

Just before the title sequence for The Walking Dead: Dead City plays for the first time, Maggie Rhee (Lauren Cohan) pulverizes the head of a walker using a telescope. She brings the makeshift weapon down repeatedly as she screams in rage, blood and brain matter splattering her face. The visual reference is obvious to anyone who has watched The Walking Dead’s flagship show. But just in case it isn’t, “Old Acquaintances” later provides a flashback to Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) crushing Glenn Rhee (Steven Yuen)’s head with a barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bat, while Glenn’s pregnant wife Maggie watches. 

From the outset, Dead City suggests that its main protagonists, Maggie and Negan, are two sides of the same coin. The show’s premiere is not shy about this intention, and neither is its creator, Eli Jorné. The widow and her husband’s killer are inextricably linked, the opening scene reminds us, separated only by a flip, a flick of the fingers, a choice. Not a choice made by the characters, but one made by the viewers.

Exclusive Video Interview: From's A.J. Simmons

***The following interview contains spoilers for 2.08***

A.J. SimmonsIn season two of MGM+’s From, things got even more interesting when a tour bus from Grand Rapids appeared in the town, allowing the series to add new characters. One of these characters is Randall (A.J. Simmons), who has had a hard time finding his place in the town, picking fights, especially with Donna (Elizabeth Saunders) of Colony House, not dealing well with authority. As such, he was banished to living on the bus alone with only a talisman to protect him from the creatures that come out at night.

However, Randall seemed to somewhat connect with Jim (Eion Bailey), who he had helped previously try to rescue his wife. In this week’s episode, the two tried unsuccessfully to use Randall’s drone to boost the signal of the radio by attaching a receiver to it.

However, by the end of the episode, things took a dark turn when Randall kidnapped and tied up Donna, now believing some of Jim’s conspiracies, but suspicious of him as well.
