‘Defiance’ Star Julie Benz Talks Keeping the Peace in Season 3
Post Categories: Defiance, Interview

In the Season 2 finale of “Defiance,” Earth’s destruction seemed imminent, as a possessed Irisa used alien technology to terraform New York City. With the rest of the planet at risk, Defiance’s former mayor Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz) came close to shooting Irisa before Nolan intervened. He stopped his adopted daughter by breaking the control over her, but the two were left trapped in a pod buried beneath the town.

As Season 3 opens Friday on Syfy, Defiance resembles a ghost town, with Amanda and the remaining residents left to pick up the pieces – and brace themselves for a new alien threat.

On the Toronto set of sci-fi series, Benz sat down with journalists to discuss Amanda’s state of mind, political fallout, strained relationships and the introduction of the Omec.

Your character had quite a journey in Season 2. Where do we find her this year?

Julie Benz: Season 2 was quite a dark path for Amanda. We see at the beginning of Season 3 that she is out of the darkness. She’s back to being mayor. She’s really fighting to keep the town alive. The E-Rep have buggered off. The mines have shut down, so there is a lack of gulanite in the town. Those who can leave have left. It’s pretty desolate at the start of Season 3, so she’s really struggling to hold everybody together and hold the town together.

How do you feel Amanda has changed politically in this new world?

Someone asked me whether she’d been reelected and I was like, “I really don’t think there was a reelection.” There was nobody to step in, so she just stepped in. Amanda has always been the heart of Defiance. She has always represented everything that Defiance stands for, which is unity, equality and survival. She’s an idealist within that, and I think with the town struggling, she’s starting to emerge as a very strong leader. In the beginning, she was appointed mayor for some manipulative reasons and she didn’t rise to the occasion. She was struggling and then she lost the election, obviously. She had her downfall in Season 2. In Season 3, we see her really coming into her own as a leader in a town that is just having one of its worst times. Her politics are still the same, if not stronger. I don’t think Amanda could ever leave Defiance because I don’t know how she would define herself then. (more…)

“Defiance” Renewed for Season 3!
Post Categories: Defiance, News & Announcements

It’s official: Syfy is renewing two summer thrillers, including a pickup for supernatural freshman drama Dominion.

Post-apocalyptic angel-war drama Dominion will return for a second season and alien-colonized Earth drama Defiance is getting a third round. Both will receive 13-episode orders from Universal Cable Productions. Kevin Murphy (Caprica) will resume his role as executive producer and showrunner of Defiance while Vaun Wilmott (Sons of Anarchy) will continue to fill the same posts for Dominion. The shows have averaged the exact same viewership on Thursday nights—2.7 million viewers, and 1.2 million adults 18-49 (including seven days of DVR playback).
