There is a tantalizing mention in the DEFIANCE WIKI for a character called Bio Man. There is absolutely no information on him, except that he will be played by Rob Archer, is male, and is 1.98m (6’6″) tall. The wiki page links to an IMDB page for the Rob Archer who appears on LOST GIRL.
Archer was the big tattooed guy with the tongue, credited as “large man”, that Bo fights in the first episode of LOST GIRL. Mr. Archer turns up again in Confaegion, LOST GIRL episode #38, (which SyFy will air on 28 January) as someone named Bruce.
Rob Archer’s first role was as Buzz in the film BULLETPROOF MONK (2003) and he is Vernon Hicks in the 2012 film THE SAMARITAN.
DEFIANCE the TV show will premiere on SyFy on 15 April. DEFIANCE the game (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC) will be released on 2 April and is now available for pre-order.
Jaime Murray (who owes the odd spelling of her first name to the Bionic Woman) will be Shtama Tarr (whose first name has an odd anagram). Shtama was an aristocrat on her home planet Castithan before it was destroyed. She met her husband, Datak Tarr (Tony Curran) while en route to Earth as a refugee. Shtama has to be the best-looking alien ever on films or TV. (Previously, that honour belonged to Claudia Black‘s Aeryn Sun of FARSCAPE, though some might suggest it was was Terry Farrell’s Jadzia Dax). Castithan females are, by custom, somewhat submimssive.
Jaime Murray will be vampire Professor Gerri Dandridge in FRIGHT NIGHT 2, due for a direct-to-DVD release later this year, and will be filmed in Romania.
