Note from the editor: I have included interviews under exclusive if they are private or one-on-one or in person interviews. These were not part of press conference calls or group discussions. These are exclusives that are currently published here at SciFi Vision or as part of one of SciFi Vision's own podcasts, or in some early cases at Media Blvd. Magazine.

I also have chosen to include some interviews from press events that are only open to a select few and not the general press or public, such as convention press rooms and everything from the Syfy Digital Press Tours, set tours, etc. as although they are not entirely exclusive, they do contain exclusive photos and sometimes videos that no other site has (I have started to mark some of these as "Spotlight" as opposed to "Exclusive, but they still remain in this category"), or may be about my own experiences only at the events. Note that in a few specific cases, the set tours were exclusive and specifically for SciFi Vision.

Exclusive Video Interview: Zyra Gorecki on La Brea and Inspiring Others

Zyra GoreckiAt the site of the La Brea Tar Pits in LA, when a massive sinkhole opens up, Izzy, played by Zyra Gorecki, and her father (Eoin Macken) are separated from her family when her brother (Jack Martin) and mother (Natalie Zea) fall into the hole and are transported to prehistoric times. La Brea actress Gorecki recently chatted with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive video interview about her time on the series.

Gorecki was only seventeen when she first found out about the role when producers contacted Camp No Limits looking to cast a girl with an amputation, but she knew right away she wanted the role. The actress said she couldn’t believe it when she got the part. “My brain has no concept of the magnitude of things. I got the role, and I was like, ‘It's not real.’ ”

The actress admires her character’s vulnerabilities. “I think Izzy is traits that I wish I had. She has this really special ability to be vulnerable, and that's a really, really hard thing to do.”

Exclusive: Lucy Lawless & Renee O'Connor Talk My Life is Murder Reunion, Xena Reboot, & More

Lucy Lawless & Renee O'ConnorMy Life is Murder stars Lucy Lawless as retired detective Alexa Crowe, who returns to New Zealand in season two. She is joined by tech genius, Madison Feliciano (Ebony Vagulans), as she works to solve mysterious murder cases given to her by Detective Harry Hanare (Rawiri Jobe).

In the season finale, streaming tomorrow on Acorn TV, when a self-help guru is killed, Alexa and Madison go undercover and find themselves pitted against the victim’s wife, Clarissa Klein, played by Renee O’Connor.

The episode serves as a reunion of sorts that Xena: Warrior Princess fans have been waiting for, reconnecting Lawless, who played the iconic starring role on the fantasy series that gained a cult following, and O’Connor, who played the role of Gabrielle.

The two actresses recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview on Zoom about reuniting for the series, where Lawless teased about O’Connor’s role as the cult leader saying that she could be the bad guy or “the good guy in disguise.”

O’Connor jumped at the chance to reunite for the series, which returned for the second season to New Zealand because of COVID; it was a happy surprise. “[Lucy] sort of mentioned it. Honestly, I didn't think that it was anything that would be truly possible, to pick up and just go to New Zealand. Then, when the quarantine came up…it just seemed highly unlikely, but Lucy's company, a few of the people there, just didn't give up. They just kept trying to figure out how it could possibly happen, and the next thing I knew, I was flying to New Zealand.”

Exclusive: Maximilian Osinski Talks Character Intentions in The Walking Dead: World Beyond

Maximilian OrsinskiIn tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Jennifer and Dennis both struggled to adjust to their new assignments in the CRM. As Jennifer begins to open her eyes to the mother’s actions, will Dennis also have second thoughts? Or is he a true believer?

“I think Dennis is genuine in what he believes,” actor Maximilian Osinski (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) told SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview, “and what he thinks he's doing for the good of the world. I think his journey, like [with] a lot of the other characters on the show, everyone's realizing the world isn't as black and white as they'd like to think and has gray areas.”

Although Dennis has been demoted, he still believes in the Civic Republic. “I don't think he's lying, or I don't think he's manipulating or just saying things to please other people,” Osinski continued.

“I think he's a good man who's made some mistakes and who's flawed like everyone else and now is paying the price. And look at the way he's paying the price. He's still doing a job that in his mind is beneath him, but he's doing it with the sense of helping people younger than him move up and find meaning in his life. So, I think that tells me he's a very genuine man and his intentions are genuine and pure.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Alex Pettyfer Talks Immortality and His Film Warning

Alex PettyferThe science fiction thriller Warning, which takes place in the near future leading up to Earth’s destruction, takes a look at short narratives of different groups of interconnected people as they contemplate the meaning of life in a time when the technology we’ve become to depend on is often a substitute for human contact.

The scenes with Alex Pettyfer, who plays the role of Liam, who comes from a wealthy family and brings his girlfriend (Annabelle Wallis) home to dinner, tell a cautionary tale of immortality.

Watching the film, directed by Agata Alexander, is not a passive experience, as it’s definitely one that will make you think about things, including technology, in a new light. According to, Pettyfer, who talked to Jamie Ruby in an exclusive interview, our evolving technology can cause you to lose yourself, and he misses the personal connection. “I think that we are in a point in time where technology in its evolution is so drastically advanced that we are in a place where our communication has evolved into a kind of a distorted reality. I think that, unfortunately, we've gone through a very, very hard time the last few years.

Video Interview: David Eigenberg, Christian Stolte, & Joe Minoso Tease the 200th Episode of Chicago Fire

Chicago FireChicago Fire is about to air its 200th episode tonight! It is no surprise that the cast has shared a lot of memories together throughout the years and plan to make even more.

In a recent press roundtable, David Eigenberg, Christian Stolte, and Joe Minoso shared that they have a special, unbreakable bond both on and off screen. It is something that is beautiful to see and something that will last a lifetime.

“We mock ourselves and each other all the time.” Stolte shared with SciFi Vision. “Once in a while we're in the moment like that, where I think each of us realizes, 'Oh, we're pretty good at this,' and we kind of forget that, because we're used to just sort of taking ourselves in a casual fashion.”

“[There’s] never, that I've ever been in or heard of, a scene in the show where everybody isn’t all inclusive." Eigenberg added. “Everybody is on board to go.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Star & Writer/Director Talk Women is Losers, Coming Soon to HBO Max

Lorenza Izzo & Lissette FelicianoWomen Is Losers is a new film that tells a familiar story. The movie follows young Celina Guerrera as she copes with an unplanned pregnancy and tries to make it on her own as a single Latina mother in San Francisco. From 1967 to 1973, Celina struggles to hold a job, pay the rent, raise her son and maybe, just maybe, get a foothold in a system that is rigged against her. Fresh off the festival circuit, Women is Losers premieres Monday, October 25th on HBO Max.  

This may be a period piece, but in the hands of writer/director/producer Lissette Feliciano, the tale pops off the screen with a modern feel. Her directorial and production choices (such as modern music and other anachronisms) remind audiences that the more things change, the more they stay the same. 

“The through line of the film is intergenerationality,” she told SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview. “The things that Celina's character is dealing with in 1967 through 1973 were things that I was dealing with in 2021...So, it didn't feel like I had to really pick a time period, because it's every time period. It's now, it's currently now, and it's going to be unfortunately the next couple of years as well…So, that really gave me carte blanche to use all the different techniques, all the different sounds, all the different music, all the different colors, even different film styles.”

Cantu, Cumpston, & Sutherland Talk The Walking Dead: World Beyond Season 2

The Walking Dead: World BeyondTonight, AMC premieres the third episode of the second season of The Walking Dead: World Beyond. The series follows teens as they try to survive the apocalypse, as well as the CRM. Nicholas Cantu stars as Elton, the analytical one of the bunch, while Hal Cumpston stars as Silas, who was brought to the campus colony after being arrested of a violent crime. At the end of last season, Ted Sutherland joined the cast as Percy. While Elton and Percy are currently navigating the world together, at the end of last season, they were separated from others, as well as Silas, who was picked up by the CRM.

The three recently talked to the press during a roundtable interview.

The actors also talked to SciFi Vision about some of the things that surprised them about their characters in the first season. Cantu was surprised by his character’s reaction to Hope (Alexa Mansour) killing his mother. “I thought he was gonna flip. I was like, ‘He's gonna go evil. He's gonna be the evil one. This is gonna be the change of the season.’ I guess it says more about me and how rage filled I am, but Elton just accepted it. He just internalized it, and he went on this long journey, and he found Percy [and Silas] because of it. He found both of his friends, because he was able to, I guess, not kill the killer, because…I was making the movie in my head, and it wasn't the movie that we were making. So, I was surprised by Elton's lack of action, or introspective action. His intellectual brain power just took over…He just ran away with his problems, which is a good message for the viewers.”

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.”

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+
