SyFy has figured out a way to mix in first person shooter games and a television series with their new upcoming show Defiance. The show is going to air in April of 2013, along with a massive game that will impact the actual TV series as players advance in the game. Defiance stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Fionnula Flanagan, Mia Kirshner and Graham Greene. The casting directors are now looking for male and female actors for several supporting roles in the series. This is a great opportunity for anyone that is a fan of the SyFy channel or anyone that is waiting on their big break.
The series is set in the near future, where aliens known collectively as Votans have come to Earth seeking a new home after their solar system was destroyed. However, when they reached Earth they discovered that despite a prolonged negotiation with the government on Earth they were not welcome. Rather than turn away, they began a war with the humans as they are determined to make Earth their new home. During the war, the Votans drop terraformers on the planet and transform the surface of the planet; scorching the earth, opening chasms in the ground and covering the surface of the planet in dust and debris. After decades of war, a ceasefire is declared when both side realise that they must focus on survival on this new almost alien planet.
The casting directors are now taking applications for several supporting roles for the new series. If you are interested please submit your applicaiton along with a photo and basic resume. Please keep checking back for more information on casting dates and times and as always please leave us a comment and let us know what you think about SyFy and their idea of incorporating video games with TV series.
