Paul Amos (Vex in 24 LOST GIRL episodes) is Wren in DARKEN, a fantasy set in a violent prison-like world ruled by a self-appointed religious despot in the name of a god called Mother Darken. When Eve (Bea Santos) is inadvertently drawn into this dangerous place, she must ally herself with the rebels if she is to have any hope of escaping. Rob Archer (Bruce in six LG episodes) appears in the film as The Bard. DARKEN, which will also be a digital series, will screen 26 November at 7pm at the Blood In The Snow Film Festival at the Royal Cinema, 608 College St. in Toronto.
And Amos will be Oberon in a production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM by The Checkov Collective (formed in 2014 by an ensemble of actors to explore classic plays using the techniques of Michael Chekhov). The play will run from 21 February to 11 March at The Citadel in Toronto. Continue reading →
DARK MATTER – Season 3 Episode 13 – SPOILERS
Two (Melissa O’Neil) contemplates an unopened file containing information on her daughter
Six (Roger Cross) still has a death wish. He volunteers for what he thinks is a suicide mission to destroy a Ferris Corp shipyard.

It does appear that the Marauder blinks to a different location as the space-time anomaly it created expands. Alien-Two programmed the Marauder’s blink drive to create a gateway between universes large enough for the Black Ships to pass through. Continue reading →

Three (Anthony Lemke) contemplates an interface between two universes
Aliens from a nearly dead nearby universe who feed on entropy want to move into this one. Dwarf Star is building bodies for them, so they can infiltrate human society and take over the galaxy. The Android Liberation Front has included a message in the latest system upgrade urging androids everywhere to overthrow the anthroparchy and take over the galaxy, the very thing that Ferrous Corp. is trying to accomplish for itself by waging war with all the other corporations.
The aliens communicate who and what they are to Three (who was previously possessed by one of them), and Three‘s unconscious mind pictures the alien initially as Five, then as The Android, Two, and Six. Alien-Five tells him: “Your mind is too primitive to grasp what we are, too frightened of the truth, so it seeks the comfort of familiar images.” (Jodelle Ferland is really scarily great as alien-Five.)
