The Syfy drama series Defiance, which is also a multi-platform video game, is the first-ever convergence of television and online gaming, featuring an interconnected world between the two mediums as they evolve together into one overall story. Set in the near future, the show is a story about survival under extreme circumstances, with humans and aliens trying to co-exist peacefully in this new civilization. From executive producer Kevin Murphy, the show stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene and Mia Kirshner.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Grant Bowler – who plays Joshua Nolan, a former lieutenant in the Earth Military Coalition who fought in the alien conflict and is now lawkeeper in Defiance – talked about the process of doing both the show and the video game, his first experience with motion capture, what attracted him to this character, the relationship between Nolan and Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas), how much he enjoys the physicality of this role, getting to see how the sets and characters would look, and how much he’s looking forward to continuing to play this character.
