Phoebe is te zien in de nieuwe Australische tv serie ‘Boy Swallows Universe’, de serie gebaseerd op een gelijnamig boek zal te zien zijn op Netflix. Een releasedatum is nog niet bekend.

Brisbane, 1985: a lost father, a mute brother, a junkie mum, a heroin dealer for a stepfather and a notorious crim for a babysitter. It’s not as if Eli Bell’s life isn’t complicated enough already. He’s just trying to follow his heart and understand what it means to be a good man, but fate keeps throwing obstacles in his way – not the least of which is Tytus Broz, legendary Brisbane drug dealer. But now Eli’s life is going to get a whole lot more serious: he’s about to meet the father he doesn’t remember, break into Boggo Road Gaol on Christmas Day to rescue his mum, come face to face with the criminals who tore his world apart, and fall in love with the girl of his dreams.

Captain Kirk is wearing a black hoodie and jeans. In the third episode of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season Two, James T. Kirk trades his gold Starfleet uniform for some 21st-century threads (thanks to some time travel shenanigans), and, in doing so, becomes an everyman. As played by Paul Wesley, this version of Kirk isn’t a larger-than-life hero; instead, he feels like someone you know. Or, better yet, someone you might aspire to be like. “He’s a classic,” Wesley tells Esquire. “I feel like Kirk would like classic clothing. He’s like jeans, leather jackets, boots, hoodies, white t-shirts, black t-shirts, boom, done. I never want to wear things that will go out of style.”

Although the idea of James Kirk might conjure up images of William Shatner fighting a rubber lizard in slow-motion, or, perhaps the wise-cracking Chris Pine, the character of Kirk is far more relatable and real than his reputation suggests. “If you actually watch The Original Series, yes, there’s some exaggerated stuff there, but for the most part, Kirk is pretty down-to-earth,” Wesley explains. “He’s not like the caricature people think of, or as big as people have made him out to be in their heads over the years.”

Perhaps most well-known for his role as immortal Stefan on The Vampire Diaries, Wesley is the opposite of a caricature. He’s a thoughtful, relatable guy, more apt to ask a question about you than talk about himself. He’s charming and he’s got swagger, but he’s also subtle and kind. In Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season Two, Wesley appears as James T. Kirk in a few surprising episodes, beginning with the third story, “Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow.” It’s a cracking time travel romp, which sends a version of Kirk and series regular La’an (Christina Chong) back to 21st-century Toronto. In the vein of classic Trek time travel, Paul Wesley gets to play Kirk as a fish out of water, and in doing so, makes him more realistic and more interesting than any version of Kirk we’ve seen before.

For most viewers, Strange New Worlds is a back-to-basics version of Star Trek; each episode is mostly self-contained, and even the complicated sci-fi plotting feels secondary to characters and emotions. And in this way, Wesley’s version of Jim Kirk is a microcosm of the entire series. He is Kirk, sometimes from a different timeline, sometimes found just a few years before taking over the Enterprise, but don’t worry about it too much. He’s the guy you trust, because he believes in people when no one else will, and he’ll always do the right thing, even if nobody notices or remembers. In Strange New Worlds, Wesley doesn’t reinvent the character of Captain Kirk, but instead, does something that feels radical: his performance reminds us that all of us could be Kirk if we wanted to be. Kirk isn’t a legend—he’s just a guy. A very competent and cool guy, but someone you’d want to hang out with all the same. In real life, Wesley is very much the same. His enthusiasm for life and his interest in art and music is infectious. He’s a man of action, and a Renaissance man, too. But, ultimately, Wesley feels like the guy who would loan you his hoodie and never ask for it back.

Esquire caught up with Paul Wesley to discuss playing Captain Kirk in Strange New Worlds, making whiskey, and how to know when you’ve really grown up. Spoilers ahead for Strange New Worlds Season 2, Episode 3.

Michael heeft een interview gehad met The Wrap over zijn regie debuut voor ‘Roswell, New Mexico’, hiervoor keeg hij advies van collega Janine Manson en Julie Plec!

A little bit of advice from Julie Plec also didn’t hurt

Any actor’s directorial debut is daunting. But for “Roswell, New Mexico” star Michael Trevino, things were significantly easier thanks to his leading lady, Jeanine Mason, who apparently was “saving” him on the daily.

In Monday night’s episode, directed by Trevino, we meet Outlaw Liz (Mason). She’s a parallel version of the Liz Ortecho we’ve come to know and love, who acts on her darker impulses. Thanks to the chemical compound she inhaled, Liz is trapped in her mindscape, battling for dominance. That mindscape, of course, is an old western town, in which Liz is the sheriff, haunted by Outlaw Liz.

Mason took on double duty for the week and according to Trevino, needed very little direction from him.
“I literally was just behind the monitor, because I know how talented she is,” Trevino recalled to TheWrap. “And then I see her play this completely different character, making complete opposite choices, and they’re believable, and she’s making it look easy. And I know it’s hard, but she’s making it look so easy. I was so, so thankful for — I remember everyday just being like, ‘thank you’ because she’s saving me!”

Of course, a little advice from a seasoned vet didn’t hurt either. Because for Trevino, this directorial debut has been a long time coming — he shadowed his old “Vampire Diaries” friend Julie Plec way back on the “Roswell, New Mexico” pilot. So he made sure to pick her brain on some key aspects. But more on that shortly.

For now, Trevino is just basking in the excitement of his episode finally being out in the world.

“It’s never easy. But when it’s all said and done and you get to that final day, it all comes together? There’s no better feeling,” he said.

Michael heeft een interview gehad met TV Fanatic over zijn regiedebuut in ‘Roswell, New Mexico’.

Roswell, New Mexico’s favorite doctor has had a hell of a season.

While Kyle Valenti continues to be an integral part of this final season, his portrayer, Michael Trevino, traded in his stethoscope for a director’s chair as he got behind the camera to helm Roswell, New Mexico Season 4 Episode 9.

It’s a twisty hour that takes viewers into a mindscape that looks much more like an episode of Gunsmoke than Roswell. We asked Michael about the hour and the differences between acting and directing. We also had to sneak in a Kybel question for all you shippers!

Michael is always a pleasure to speak with, and it’s always a good time talking to him about Roswell. Enjoy!

What did you think when you got the script and were like, this is going to be my episode because it’s unlike anything we’ve seen on Roswell?
The initial reaction was that I was so excited and grateful for how big the episode is and how they threw so much at me. And then I was terrified because I had no idea how I was going to shoot it.

So, a lot of prep went into it because there are just a lot of moving parts in this one. And I’m just grateful for the opportunity but was also just a bit nervous going in, until you do the prep and do the work and then you figure out like, “Oh, okay, this is how I’m going to tell your story.”

Ben Levin heeft een terugkerende rol gescoord in The CW serie ‘Kung Fu’.

The CW‘s Kung Fu is adding two new cast members to its upcoming third season as Legacies alum Ben Levin and Supernatural star Kim Rhodes are joining the martial arts drama.

As reported by Deadline, Levin is set to play Bo, a barista/vigilante who lives in Oakland. His character is described as “cool, smart, and strong with a jack-of-all-trades fighting style.” He will collide with Nicky (Olivia Liang) and her siblings before eventually trying to prove himself to the Shen family and fight by Nicky’s side.

Rhodes, meanwhile, will portray Carrie, a representative for a large restaurant investment group, who is described as “blunt and funny.” Carrie’s company takes an interest in Harmony Dumplings, but Mei-Li (Kheng Hua Tan) initially turns down the offers. However, after an unexpected friendship grows between her and Carrie, Mei-Li becomes more open to the idea of working together.

Kung Fu was developed by Christina M. Kim, who also serves as executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Robert Berens. The series premiered on The CW on April 7, 2021, and revolves around Chinese-American Nicky, who uses her martial arts skills and Shaolin values to protect her community from ongoing crime and corruption. Season 2 debuted on March 9, 2022, and was renewed for a third season that same month.

Levin most recently played Jed Tien in CW’s Legacies, where he started out as a recurring character before being promoted to series regular for the show’s final two seasons. He’s also appeared in the series Arrested Development, Love, and Time After Time.

Rhodes is known for starring in the soap operas Another World and As the World Turns. She also played Carey Martin on the Disney Channel sitcoms The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and The Suite Life on Deck. From 2010 to 2020, she played Sheriff Jody Mills in the fantasy drama Supernatural. She’s also had recurring roles in the likes of Criminal Minds and Colony.

This is Paul Wesley like we’ve never seen him before.

With old-age make-up and gray hair, the former Vampire Diaries star transforms into the menacing Amos in E! News’ exclusive sneak peek of the finale of Flowers in the Attic: The Origin.

Amos is called in for support after his cousin Olivia Winfield Foxworth (Jemima Rooper) is rocked by the departure of her daughter Corinne (Hannah Dodd) and Corinne’s partner—and half sibling!—Christopher (Callum Kerr). “After Corinne and Christopher left, I found myself in, well, rather a dark place,” Olivia tells Amos upon his arrival to Foxworth Hall. “I suppose I was finding it increasingly difficult to find the light where it used to shine so brightly.”

Amos does his best to console her—at least initially. “A certain amount of darkness is to be expected,” he says. “You’ve suffered tremendous loss.” With Amos’ attention totally fixed on her, Olivia begins to open up even further.”I keep thinking some of it may have been my fault,” she reveals to Amos. “I should have found a way to open my heart to Corinne and Christopher.”

That’s when Amos starts to get brutally honest. “Absolutely not. You provided everything for Corinne and she chose a path of moral corruption,” he insists. “Any further contact with her would pull her into the life of sin that she has chosen to live. Whatever befalls her now is God’s way of punishing her.”

When Olivia suggests that not having Corinne in her life feels like her own punishment, Amos says, “One might ask, and certainly not me, if you have done anything that merits punishing.” There’s something off with this guy.

Based on V.C. Andrews’ 1979 novel Flowers In The Attic, the four-part Lifetime series also co-stars Harry Hamlin, Max Irons, Kate Mulgrew and Kelsey Grammer. See old Paul Wesley in the Flowers in the Attic: The Origin finale, when it airs on July 30 on Lifetime.

Candice heeft in een interview met TheWrap verteld over haar ervaring op de set van ‘Legacies’, zo onthult ze ook dat haar dochter Florence te zien is in één van de scenes.

The ”Vampire Diaries“ actress tells TheWrap all about her character Caroline Forbes’ surprise return

The CW’s “Legacies” ended on Thursday with not one, but two very special appearances from beloved characters.

Joesph Morgan’s Klaus Mikaelson spoke with his daughter Hope from the afterlife to let her know that he’d finally found peace — which showrunner Brett Matthews told TheWrap was an integral part of bringing the show to a close. Fans might have guessed that Morgan was making a return, after he cryptically teased it on social media, but they likely weren’t expecting the surprise return of Candice King as Caroline Forbes — a character from the original “The Vampire Diaries.”

“I hope that there was a whole bunch of people that actually get to watch it live and be totally surprised,” King told TheWrap. “That was the goal. We’ve been trying to have Caroline Forbes get back into the ‘Legacies’ world for a while now.”
