Exclusive interview with Trenna Keating of Defiance on April 22, 2013Interview by Jamie RubyWritten by Jamie Ruby
Syfy's new series Defiance
features multiple alien races, collectively called the Votans. One of these races is Indogene. They are characterized by their bright white, hairless skin, which is comprised of faint hexagon-shaped scales. Their irises are also hexagonal. The Indogene not only have their own unique look, but also their own language, which is also based on hexagons. The Indogene are the most scientifically and technologically advanced of the Votan races.
The Indogene that appears most on Defiance
is Doctor Meh Yewll, played by the talented actress Trenna Keating.
Keating recently sat down with Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision for an exclusive interview to talk about her work on the series.
The actress is very grateful to be playing Yewll. "I was pretty lucky to get on Defiance
, because there're a lot of casting directors, in fact most casting directors in town still don't know who I am, so the casting directors of Defiance
have been really great to me."
By Christiane ElinSo You Think You Can Dance
returns for its tenth season with a special two-night premiere on Tuesday, May 14th and Wednesday, May 15th. Host Cat Deeley spoke with SciFiVision in a conference call about the new season.
Cat shared that this year, "people are getting very, very creative with the different styles and their choices of music. They know now that we are in season ten, so we've seen people run up walls and do back flips. We've seen, you know, ten pirouettes all in one go, so they've got to do something that's a little big unique and normally that involves doing something with the music, so say putting a hip-hop routine to a classical piece of music or giving the dance a story. It's about their creativity."
Not only has Cat seen that contestants are becoming more creative but she has seen more newbies try out for the show. Cat went on to say, "It means that within the dance community, we're still a relevant show. We're still a relevant part of their career process, which I think is brilliant."

The final four became the final three after Amber Holcomb received the least amount of votes (from two weeks) on this week's American Idol
results show. After a very emotional night, Amber gave her final performance as an American Idol
SciFi Vision spoke with Amber the day after the results show. On the call, Amber was in good spirits about her future after her Idol
journey. For many American Idol
viewers, the same question lingered about why she was so emotional on result's night. Amber took us through what was going inside her head after the results were read. Amber said when she watched the package video it really got to her. After the video she saw her dad crying and then it was time for her to sing. When singing she was thinking about going home. It was a lot to take in at that moment for the 18-year old.
The judges unanimously believe that Amber should easily have a career after her time at American Idol
. Amber said that, although she didn't win, she finds that she will be able to take this time to focus on herself. Amber is looking forward to what's next and would like to have you see her in all forms of media within the next 10 years.
