Countdown to Defiance: Video Blow-Out – Meet More Characters and Go Behind the Scenes
Ready for more insight into what’s heading our way on Monday when “Defiance” premieres on Syfy? We have a video bonanza that introduces more characters and goes behind the scenes so get comfortable and stick around for a while.
First up is “Women of Defiance,” which shows that in the world of 2046, it’s the ladies who call the shots. Then we meet Datak Tarr, a scheming Castithan alien and ark survivor, played by Tony Curran. Next is Kenya (Mia Kirshner), the proprieter of Defiance’s resident bar and bordello, the Need/Want, who’s also the sister of Julie Benz’s character, Mayor Amanda Rosewater; and last but not least is Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas), a tough and resourceful Irathient who ends up in Defiance with her adopted human father, Jeb Nolan.
After you get a feel for the cast and their characters, it’s time to see a time-lapsed clip of the set being built, check out the Dodge Charger that’s used on the show, and get a look behind the scenes at what went into the making of “Defiance.”
“Defiance” introduces a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravaged by decades of war and transformed by alien terra-forming machines. It centers on Jeb Nolan (Grant Bowler), the law-keeper in a bustling frontier boomtown that is one of the new world’s few oases of civility and inclusion. Nolan is a former Marine who fought in the alien conflict and suffered the loss of his wife and child in the war. The trauma transformed him into a lone wanderer in the wilds of this new and dangerous world.
