Exclusive: Lynn Collins on What's Next for The Walking Dead’s Leah

Lynn CollinsIn last week’s mid-season finale, The Walking Dead finally put an end to Pope (Ritchie Coster) when Leah (Lynn Collins) stabbed him in the neck. Leah had remained loyal to the Reapers up to this point - a loyalty that has sometimes been difficult for fans to understand. In an exclusive interview with SciFi Vision, Lynn Collins explained why she thinks Leah has stuck with the violent mercenaries for so long.

“When we see her in season ten and we meet her,” explained Collins, “the majority of that episode is her having a catharsis, because she's never got to speak about these horrifying moments where she loses her ‘sister’ and the sister's child and even Dog's mother…So, when she goes back into this culty militaristic religious extremism, I think it's because the alternative would be to be out on her own again with all of that pain.”

So, what changed Leah’s mind about Pope? “She believes that she's there to protect and love these people…I think when the house, the cabin, is set on fire and she's in it with Daryl (Norman Reedus), I think that's the first big wake up call for her where she's like, ‘Oh my God, I'm not safe here.’…So there's a lot going on in Leah's head, and she’s trying to navigate, is Daryl someone she can trust, and is Carver (Alex Meraz) someone she can trust? And if Pope can risk and sacrifice A, B, C and D, is he going to sacrifice her, which we already know he already tried. So, it's very complicated.”

Nico Tortorella & Jelani Alladin Talk The Walking Dead: World Beyond Season 2

Jelani Alladin and Nico TortorellaRecently, AMC premiered the second and final season of The Walking Dead: World Beyond. At the end of last season, Felix, played by Nico Totorella, was reunited with his boyfriend Will, played by Jelani Alladin. Will, who was originally a security guard at the campus colony, escaped the CRM when they tried to kill him for asking too many questions. He recently revealed the devastating news to Felix and Iris (Aliyah Royale) that the Omaha campus has been completely destroyed.

During a recent roundtable interview, the two talked to SciFi Vision about the betrayals their characters have faced, Will by the CRM, and Felix by Huck (Annet Mahendru). Alladin said that after being lied to his character will be less trusting. “I think it's a matter of ‘I don't believe anything that anybody says. I believe their actions,’ and your actions are going to give me answers to what your moral compass is. I think that we'll see that throughout the course of the season, the interactions with Will and the CRM, Will and Huck.”

Tortorella agreed that’s it’s hard for their characters to trust. “Not only that, [but] their entire town is gone. Their home has completely disappeared, and we don't really know how or why that happened. I think that the level of unknown is so massive, but it's not bigger than a zombie apocalypse. We've already hit peak of like, ‘What is going on?’ and then everything else becomes less surprising after that. So, yes, they don't trust the people around them, but I think it's hard to trust the world when, all of a sudden, you could have dead people coming back to life to eat you.

‘…I think the bigger question for this season is what is the difference between good and evil? The space between those two is a lot wider than any of us would care to admit.”

Stars Javicia Leslie & Robin Givens Talk Season 3 of Batwoman, Premiering Tonight on The CW

BatwomanBased on the characters from DC, Batwoman, which premieres its third season tonight on The CW, follows Ryan Wilder, played by Javicia Leslie, who now carries out the legacy of Batwoman and protects the city of Gotham. This season, she and the Bat Team must work to recover artifacts taken from some of Batman’s worst villains. Meanwhile, Ryan deals with the bombshell dropped by Alice (Rachel Skarsten) that her mother is in fact alive. Things get even more complicated when Wayne Enterprises ends up on the radar of Jada Jet, played by Robin Givens.

Leslie talked to SciFi Vision about what it was like the first time she put on the bat suit. “The suit is epic. I think Maya Mani, our costumer at Batwoman, does such an amazing job with the suit. I think the way it fits, the streamlining, the shape and silhouette that it creates, it's so powerful. It's so womanly, yet it's still very badass, like, ‘Don't mess with me.’ So, I always say, whenever I put on the suit, I automatically feel like a superhero, because it does grab me up like this, and it makes me walk with my shoulders back and my head high, and you automatically kind of feel the responsibility of being a hero.”

Givens may not have a superhero costume on the series, but she told the site that she does get to wear a lot of designer dresses. “I have to say, in a similar way for Jada Jet, it's not this superhero costume, but you really see how people and costume designers win Oscars for what they do, and it really helps you create a character. So, everything about the way Jada dresses says everything about her. I’m so different than Jada and a lot of the women that I play, but clearly when you put on those tight dresses, there's only one way to walk in those high heeled shoes, and it really establishes the character. So, yeah, she's dresses very well.”

AMC Greenlights Tales of the Walking Dead Anthology Series - Premiering Summer 2022

AMC GREENLIGHTS “TALES OF THE WALKING DEAD” AS A NEW EPISODIC ANTHOLOGY SERIES PREMIERING ON AMC+ AND AMC NEXT SUMMER 

“TALES” WILL COMPLEMENT OTHER SERIES IN THE EXPANDING UNIVERSE AROUND “THE WALKING DEAD” WITH STAND-ALONE EPISODES AND ENGAGING, ORIGINAL STORIES FOCUSED ON NEW AND EXISTING CHARACTERS 

NEW YORK, NY, October 12, 2021 – AMC Networks today announced that it has greenlit a new AMC Studios-produced series in the expanding universe and franchise around “The Walking Dead.” “Tales of the Walking Dead” is an episodic anthology series with one-hour standalone episodes focused on both new and established characters set in the world of the original series, the most successful in the history of cable television.

Channing Powell, who has been a writer and producer on “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead,” will showrun “Tales,” working closely with Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer of the Walking Dead Universe. An initial season of six episodes is expected to go into production early next year and premiere on AMC+ and AMC next summer.

“‘The Walking Dead’ is a show that made television history and attracted an army of passionate and highly engaged fans,” said Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios. “We see so much potential for a wide range of rich and compelling storytelling in this world, and the episodic anthology format of ‘Tales of the Walking Dead’ will give us the flexibility to entertain existing fans and also offer an entry point for new viewers, especially on streaming platforms. We have seen the appeal of this format in television classics like ‘The Twilight Zone’ and, more recently, ‘Black Mirror,’ and are excited to engage with fans in this new way, against the backdrop of this very unique and engrossing world.”

Cast and Director of List of a Lifetime Talk Bucket Lists & More

List of a LifetimeIn the film List of a Lifetime, premiering tonight on Lifetime as part of Lifetime’s Stop Breast Cancer for Life campaign, after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Brenda Lee (Kelly Hu) searches for the daughter, Talia (Sylvia Kwan), she gave up for adoption years ago. After finding her, Talia convinces her to make a bucket list that she will help her complete, meanwhile keeping her a secret from her adoptive parents Diana (Shannen Doherty) and Marty (Jamie Kahler).

Cast members Doherty, Hu, and Kwan, as well as the director of the film, Roxy Shih, recently talked to the press during a video conference about working on the movie.

The cast talked to SciFi Vision about what is on their personal bucket lists. Both Hu and Kwan said they have very long bucket lists. Kwan’s list is adventurous. “I definitely want to backpack the Chilkoot Mountains. Mount Whitney is on my bucket list.  I was supposed to do it last year but didn’t get to do it. Sky diving, I want to go sky diving.”

Shih was planning a trip, but didn’t get to go. “I wanted to go to Iceland with my best friend for our ten-year friendivarsary, but then COVID hit, and then that didn’t happen. I really want to see the aurora borealis. I like anything that just sort of helps us appreciate nature and all the amazing gifts that she allows us to see in certain moments at the time and to take care of our environment. So that’s probably my biggest one yet.”

Doherty, a breast cancer survivor, told the SciFi Vision that she doesn’t have a bucket list. “I think, for me, I just think a bucket list is odd in my particular situation, because it means that I’m sort of trying to check things off before my time runs out. So, I’m very much like there’s no bucket list, because I’m going to be the longest living person with cancer. So, I guess it would just be, if I had to say one, it would just be living. That’s the only thing that’s on my list at this point.”

Michael Emerson Talks Evil Finale, Tonight on Paramount+

***Originally published at TV Tango***

Michael EmersonThe supernatural drama Evil follows psychologist Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers) who joins former journalist turned priest-in-training David Acosta (Mike Colter) and his colleague and contractor Ben Shakir (Aasif Mandvi) to investigate strange cases of possible miracles, possession, or other demonic forces to decide if they have a scientific explanation or are caused by something else.

The series was originally created by Robert and Michelle King for CBS, but moved to Paramount+ for the second season. The move ended up being a positive thing, as it allowed the series to tap into a darker and more twisted tone which really shifted in season two, also adding more humorous elements.

Michael Emerson plays the part of the evil Leland Townsend, who has been a thorn in the side of Kristen and the others from the beginning. After pretending to have a demon exorcised, at the end of the season, he is causing even more problems after being appointed by the church to talk to the group’s clients after his claims to have experience with being possessed and saved.

Emerson recently caught up with Jamie Ruby to talk about his work on the series, which was recently renewed for a season three. Be sure to catch the season two finale tonight on Paramount+

Exclusive Video Interview: Christian Kane & Beth Riesgraf on the Return of Leverage: Redemption

Beth Riesgraf and Christian KaneLeverage, which premiered Thursday on IMDB TV, is a sequel to the original series and follows the Leverage team as they help those that are taken advantage of by the rich and powerful. The series stars Christian Kane as hitter Eliot and Beth Riesgraf, who also directed this season, as thief Parker.

Kane and Riesgraf recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about working on the back half of the season, including Riesgraf directing, Eliot’s evolving relationship with the marshal, Maria Shipp (Andrea Navedo), the chemistry between all the characters, and more.

The two talked about getting back into the groove of the show. According to Kane, they all clicked again right away. “Dean Devlin, our boss, was very smart, and what he did was, the first scene up, we were all in the scene together. So, not only did we put these hats back on, we're playing these characters, and we'd already high fived and given each other a hug and been happy to be back together and did the table read, which was brilliant, but now we're standing there with these characters again, and how's it going to work? And I thought Dean was so fantastic and smart in thinking about, ‘Let's put them all in the first scene straight up, heavy dialogue, heavy content’…It was almost like trial by fire. I thought it was smart.

Cast and Producers Tease New Series Ghosts, Premiering Tonight on CBS

CBSTonight, CBS premieres its new series Ghosts, which is an adaptation of the British series of the same name. The show follows couple Sam (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar), who are excited to learn they have inherited a large house in the country. However, when they check it out, not only is it in disrepair, but they soon discover it’s still inhabited by many of the previously deceased residents from over the years.

Cast members McIver, Utkarsh, Brandon Scott Jones, Richie Moriarty, Danielle Pinnock, Asher Grodman, Román Zaragoza, Sheila Carrasco, Rebecca Wisocky, Devan Chandler Long, and executive producers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman recently talked to the press about the series as part of the TCA summer press tour.

The cast talked to SciFi Vision about whether they believe in ghosts. Long told a story about something that happened to him. “I'm staying in an apartment that was this building from the 1800s, and it was haunted for the first two weeks. Nothing's happened recently, but the first [time] I was there, there was this old guitar in my place, and the guitar string popped off at 5:00 in the morning. Then, pretty much the next two weeks, every night I would go to sleep, and just weird, creepy noises would happen. Things would fall off counters, lights would [change]. It sounds ridiculous, but I was alone, and honestly, I freaked out a little bit. I told the cast, and I actually told my wife, and she said that I should introduce myself and say who I am and what I'm doing up here; it's a Canadian ghost. They're probably nice and forgiving, and maybe they would be cool with me. I did that, and…it's been cool ever since. But it was touch and go there for a little bit. I didn't sleep a lot the first couple of weeks.”

McIver said that she wasn’t sure if she believed in ghosts or not, but she’s open to it. “I haven't witnessed or experienced something myself, but a lot of people I love and trust have. I'm definitely open to it. I feel like there's vibes in places for sure, and this house has a vibe.”
