Kathryn’s All Smiles In Syfy Reverie Interview

nycc_video_006_019

And smiles, amazing as they are, is pretty much all we got.

A further bit of reporting from the recent New York Comic Con has been published.  This time it is a video interview with the Reverie cast (Sarah Shahi, Jessica Lu, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Dennis Haysbert, and Kathryn), and creative team Mickey Fisher and Tom Szentgyorgi.

Lisa Granshaw lead the chat for the Syfy.com website.  The cast talk a little about the concept behind the show and have a laugh about what they might do with a chance to go into a virtual world like the one Jessica Lu’s character has created.  Mickey and Tom explain what was behind the idea.

nycc_video_005As I say, sadly Kathryn really doesn’t get to contribute anything in this interview.  Maybe there was more that was left out of the 5 minute edit published.  No doubt they all did dozens of these chats with various journalists through the day in New York, so only so much time can be allocated to each.

See the article and the video on the Syfy website HERE.  Don’t read too carefully if you want to avoid a spoiler about a particular location visited.  It’s out of this world!

A small number of screencaps from the video and copy of video itself can now be found in the KM UK Gallery.

Kathryn @ NYCC Interview Video

nycc_video_005_011

I could have added this to the much-updated previous post but felt it really deserved a new article.

Sean Ferguson, Senior Correspondent at the entertainment news website FlickDirect, got to interview the cast and crew of the upcoming NBC drama series Reverie at the recent New York Comic Con event.

The 15 minute long video (which can be found on YouTube HERE) includes interviews with all the major cast Sarah Shahi, Jessica Lu, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Dennis Haysbert, and Kathryn, as well as creator/writer Mickey Fisher and producer Tom Szentgyorgi.

nycc_video_005The video starts with several minutes of Sendhil giving a very eloquent description of the show.  Then Jessica joins him.  It is during this segment we get our first glimpse of Kathryn.  This really is the red carpet area we’ve already seen many photos from.  Kathryn is being photographed just off camera.  Sendhil and Jessica get Kathryn to join them for a minute, during which Dennis crashes the party, until they are all called away for more photos.  Then it’s 90 seconds with Mickey and Tom, before we’re back to Kathryn and Jessica.  It is a fun 3 and half minute long section.  The video ends with a couple of minutes with Dennis and a nice 3 with our so far absent leading lady Sarah.

We are treated to some lovely smiles from Kathryn as she talks up the show and her cast mates, there’s a bit of finger action and a curse word.  Bad Kathryn! 😯

I’ve added a small copy of the video and a load of screencaps to the KM UK Gallery.  I’ve also thrown a 3 more new photos and some more enlargenings (it’s a word…ish) from last weekend’s event.

Sendhil Ramamurthy Talks Reverie

artwork_002Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes) attended the recent Comic-Con event in San Diego.

The actor has many reasons to be at sci-fi TV and movie focused gatherings like Comic-Con because of his work on shows like Heroes, Lucky Man, and Covert Affairs over the past decade.  Of course this year Sendhil had a new project to talk about:  the new upcoming TV series Reverie.

The comparative lack of Reverie news to come out of July’s Comic-Con suggests that most of those discussions happened behind closed doors.  Perhaps they’ll become more public nearer to the broadcast.  There were definitely none of the panel discussions made up of cast and crew from the show that have become common practice at these conferences.  I don’t think key members of the production team were present.

artwork_002However, blogger Cherry Davis got a 5 minute-long interview with Sendhil.  In that time he explains the basic plot line of Reverie, hints at some of the motivations of the main character played by Sarah Shahi, and details his own role.  Crucially Kathryn gets a mention about 3 minutes in.  Sendhil leaves Kathryn’s Monica Shaw as a mystery, saying she comes in towards the end of the pilot that he’d just seen.

In between the pitching, filming, and broadcast much can change in a new TV series.  Hearing that Kathryn’s character has made it into a later cut of the first episode, and forms part of what could be the on-going storyline is very welcome news.

Thank you to Cherry Davis for making the interview available.  You can watch Cherry’s video in full on YouTube HERE.  A small copy has been added to the KM UK gallery.

 

Kathryn In Extended Resurrecting The Champ Interview

dvd_cover_001It’s 10 years ago this month that the film Resurrecting The Champ was first released in cinemas in selected parts of the world.  Most of the rest of the world didn’t get to see it for months, or even years, later.

Ten years!  That’s crazy!

RTC is about a struggling newspaper sports reporter (Josh Hartnett as Erik Kernan) looking for a story that will make his name.  He then stumbles upon a homeless man (Samuel L Jackson only referred to as ‘Champ’) as who claims to be a long-thought dead boxing legend.  Kathryn (you know, from Cold Case) plays Joyce Kernan, wife of Erik.  She’s a successful journalist working at the same newspaper and mother to his child.  Joyce is a few years older than Erik, which appears to be the cause of some issues for him.

Kathryn’s role in the film is relatively small but, as is often the case, it is crucial to the development of lead character as the story progresses

2007 puts us before Josh found his Penny, Dreadful or otherwise and Samuel L was yet to become the Marvel character Nick Fury in a 1001 projects.  Or star in an unrelated film called Fury (aka The Samaritan).  Dakota Goyo, the actor who played the Kernan’s son and the lucky so-and-so that got a red carpet hug from Kathryn at the première :-x, was 8 at the time.  Since then he’s starred as the son of Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly in the robot fighting movie Real Steel, and sort of crossed paths with SLJ again as he was the young Thor in the first of that branch of the Marvel universe.

Video!But enough of the ‘where are they now’.  Today I’ve added an extended video interview Kathryn did for promotional material to the KM UK Gallery.  A shorter section had been posted before.  It is her answers to a series of questions describing Joyce and her role in the plot.  Broadcasters often use segments of these videos when reviewing films.

As we’ve come to expect from Kathryn she gives detailed explanations in simple terms and has clearly worked hard to understand her character.  Working previously with director Rod Lurie (Deterrence and The Contender), who once suggested Kathryn was his muse, most have helped with that getting that deeper knowledge.

You Get Me Trailer

title_001Ahead of its première at the upcoming LA Film Festival, Awesomeness Films has released a trailer for the teen drama You Get Me.

That first showing of the movie is due to happen on the 16th of June, a week from today, as I reported a couple of weeks ago.  After that the film will take up residence on the Netflix streaming service, which bought the rights a few months ago.

trailer_001Slightly worryingly, recently made available press material has not included any references to Kathryn in the named cast.  She, however, has remained listed on the film’s IMDb page through various updates and additions.  Mixed signals.

So, do we get a glimpse of Kathryn in this short trailer video?  No, we don’t.  Not surprisingly the two minute long video focuses on the main teenage cast and giving away the main plot line.  That’s what trailers are for these days.

For completeness I have added the video to the KM UK Gallery HERE.

Hopefully there will be other trailers released at a later date giving a fuller picture.
