Next month the pilot for Syfy's Defiance will commence filming, and the station has announced several additional cast members joining lead star Grant Bowler
in the sci-fi post-apocalyptic series. As the show and Trion World's upcoming MMO
will share the same world and influence one another, it's quite possible that gamers could be running into virtual versions of these characters.
Four new actors have been announced for the show. The first is Julie Benz
(Dexter, Angel), who will be playing Mayor Amanda Rosewater, a leader of a small mining town. Stephanie Leonidas
(MirrorMask) is Irisa, an alien warrior who's adopted by the lead's character and raised as his bodyguard and daughter. Finally, Tony Curran
(Gladiator, Blade II) and Jaime Murray
(Warehouse 13, Dexter) are coming on as an alien husband-and-wife team fleeing the destruction of their home world.
