CHRIS EGAN AND VAUN WILMOTT

Tony Tellado: Thank you. Gentlemen, I’m pretty excited about this series. I just thought with the original movie it kind of lends itself to a series where you could expand on the mythology. Kind of both of you, kind of give us – kind of a walk through as to what this world of Legion now Dominion is, like, 30 years later and certainly, Chris, you can do it from your character’s perspective as well.

Chris Egan: Yes, well, I think – I mean for me, you know, watching Legion and then, you know – I mean for those that are fans of Legion this will be a whole new story and for those that haven’t seen Legion it’s – it really is a whole new world 25 years in the future.The world of Vega and this fortified city and the – you know, the land is desolate apart from these fortified cities. It really is – it’s a completely different spin to the movie. Vaun, take it from there I think?

Vaun Wilmott: Yes, I think that – you know, in terms of what the world is like versus – you know, 25 years in the future, it’s got contemporary aspects, it’s got all the – you know, it’s definitely grounded. It’s definitely a big what if, you know, what if angels appeared in the sky? What if this actually happened what would life – or what could life be like? So it’s not an alternate reality.It is very much based in what could have happened and Vega has a lot of, you know, giant casino hotels that could actually be perfect for housing people if need be. And we use all of that to basically create this new city, this new civilization, built a wall around it as Chris said to protect this from the angels. But it will definitely be a recognizable world in terms of things we know. But it will also have things, I think, that, you know, the what if aspect of the storytelling.

As the daughter of General Rysen – the man who led humans to victory against the angels during the Extermination War – she is a member of the highest class in Vega’s stratified society. Claire is also strong-willed and much tougher than she seems. Roxanne McKee was born in Canada but brought up in England.

Produced by Universal Cable Productions, the pilot is set to begin shooting later this month in Cape Town, South Africa. Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic supernatural action drama set 25 years after the events of the movie and picking up in the aftermath of a catastrophic war between an army of angels and mankind that has transformed the world.

Michel Litvak and David Lancaster of Bold Films, who produced the film Legion, are also Executive Producers. Vaun Wilmott wrote the pilot and is Co-Executive Producer.

Christopher Egan

Christopher Egan plays “Alex Lannen,” an orphan with both a rebellious and protective streak. Handsome, heroic and fearless, Alex is classified as a “grunt” soldier in Michael’s Archangel Corp but he is destined for more than his lowly classification in Vega’s post-Extermination War society might indicate. Among his long list of film and television credits in the US and Australia, Christopher Egan was the lead in Ryan Murphy’s pilot Pretty Handsome for HBO, and went on to star in the NBC series, Kings. He played the lead opposite Amanda Seyfried in Gary Winnick’s Letters to Juliet for Summit. Most recently, he starred in ABC pilots Poe, Beauty and the Beast, and Gothica. Christopher is represented by WME, Anonymous Content, and lawyer Karl Austen.

Tom Wisdom

Tom Wisdom plays “Michael,” the greatest of the warrior archangels. Scarred by millennia of battle, Michael is stoic, inscrutable and haunted. Instrumental in helping humanity defeat the angels during the Extermination War, Michael is now entrenched in Vega, using his superior supernatural abilities to defend the city’s inhabitants from enemy attacks. Tom Wisdom is a British theater, film and television actor. His feature film credits include 300, Pirate Radio, Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2 and The Lightkeepers co-starring Richard Dreyfuss. This fall he co-stars as Count Paris in Romeo and Juliet with Hailee Steinfeld, Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis. Wisdom also starred in the U.K. television movie Sword of Honour and played a recurring role on the series, Above Suspicion. He is represented by UTA, Emptage Hallett, and Affirmative Entertainment.

Alan Dale

Alan Dale plays “Rysen,” the general who led the humans to victory against the angels during the “Extermination War.” Responsibilities weigh heavily upon him as ruler of Vega (once known as Las Vegas), one of four cities left standing after the war. He now finds himself negotiating politics in the heavily militarized city, maintaining calm over its stratified society and keeping a watchful eye on his daughter, Claire. Born and raised in New Zealand, Alan Dale began his acting career in Australia. On American television he has played regular roles on The OC and Ugly Betty, as well as recurring and guest starring roles on Lost, 24, NCIS, Entourage, The Killing, Hot in Cleveland and Once Upon a Time. On the big screen he has appeared in the feature films Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Star Trek Nemesis.

  1. SHAD IN DC says:

    Once upon a time I loved Sci Fi, but they changed so much until I rarely watched Syfy. I loved everything the old sci Fi: the commercials, the tv shows…then the channel started integrating reality shows and wrestling. I was turned off. The best tv show from sci Fi was Taken, Dune, and Children of Dune. Fast forward a few years….now Im starting to re-love Syfy.

      Helix was awesome and now Dominion is outstanding. I’m looking forward to Expanse and ascension. I’m now reading Leviat

        SyFy is making good moves lately. I liked Dominion and Defiance started strong too..

  2. Efjay says:

    I just can’t get into this, it looks great but I find the basic premise too much to accept. I can’t figure out who they are targeting. Evidently a sequel to a movie, I’d never heard of it and I’m pretty much on top of most sci-fi, so it made either little impact or just bypassed me completely. I’m not sure many atheists will want to watch stuff about angels etc. Most spiritual or religious people will find it ludicrous, offensive or just blasphemous, I mean, the idea is God does the offski (I don’t know where an omnipresent God would go, maybe on holiday) and Angels turn out to be baddies, yup the angels people have revered for thousands of years actually are demons, except Archangel Michael – he is a proper goodie. Except he friggs whores. As for the humans, well they are not very pleasant, live in some kind of militaristic feudal system – you can’t help but wish the angels – I mean the er.. demon baddie angels would just wipe them out and end it all. I can only assume the the target audience is agnostic and rather self loathing, I don’t know but 10 mins was enough for me, shame, if the basic premise was better, it would look fantastic. I couldn’t help but think they could have made a great series based on the Dune universe.

So What Do You Think?
