Tonight Syfy airs an all-new episode of Defiance
. Now that Christie McCawley, played by Nicole Muñoz, is married to Castithan Alak Tarr (Jesse Rath) and living with his parents, Datak (Tony Curran) and Stahma (Jaime Murray), things will be different for her. The actress recently sat down with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision for an exclusive interview about marriage, pregnancy, and what's next for Christie.
Sometimes the actors get their scripts a week in advance, but it's always being changed. "We film the scripts in blocks. We get the first few scripts, and then we film it for a couple weeks, and then we get the next set of two scripts. So we get two scripts at a time, but usually they're constantly being revised; they're constantly changing. They never give you one script and go "Okay this is the script you're going to work with for the rest of the month." Every day a new one comes out. There might be just changes in spelling or a new character, but sometimes the storyline changes, because the writers are continuously doing meetings; they're continuously writing and creating and making the show better and improving. And so as actors we're always getting revisions. So sometimes it can be a week in advance, sometimes it can be a couple days in advance."
This season on Syfy's Defiance
, Doc Meh Yewll, played by Trenna Keating, has been more integral to the story line. Spending the beginning episodes in Camp Reverie, the Indogene used her smarts to eventually get let out of the prison camp, and was instrumental in the release of Datak Tarr (Tony Curran) as well.
The actress recently sat down with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview to talk about the second season and what's in store for her character moving forward.

Syfy recently premiered season two of Defiance
. Star Julie Benz took time to talk to the digital media about what's in store for her character Amanda.
Benz talked to SciFi Vision about Amanda's motivations in agreeing to working with Pottinger. "Amanda believes that she can affect Pottinger and his actions. I think she's used Pottinger as a little bit of a buffoon. That's somebody that she can control. What she doesn't realize, is she doesn't know about his whole dark side and his whole manipulations. But I think she has a big enough ego where she feels that she can actually make a difference."
Last August 24th, SciFi Vision was extremely lucky to get an exclusive visit to the Defiance
set. This was my second time visiting after the Syfy Digital Press Tour last summer, however it was the first time for my writer Karen Moul, who accompanied me.
Even the second time, I was still in awe of the beauty and size of the backlot. It's easy to let reality fall away and feel like you are really in the town of Defiance.
In August, at the beginning of filming for the second season of Defiance
, SciFi Vision was lucky enough to get to visit the set and learn a bit about the upcoming season.
During that visit, Grant Bowler, who stars as Nolan, sat down with the site for an exclusive interview.
At the beginning of the season, Nolan is no longer the lawkeeper, so what will bring him back to the town? "I think the tricky thing in season two actually is getting him back to Defiance. I mean that's the first thing for me that's the trickiest thing, because my first question was when Kevin [Murphy] wrote him busting out of Defiance, "How are you going to get him back?" Because he's not really a guy with a reverse gear, so we've solved that; there is something that brings him back to Defiance."
