SAN DIEGO -- Actress Stephanie Leonidas brings Irisa to life in both the new Trion Worlds massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Defiance and the Syfy TV series set in the same universe. The actress was at Comic-Con 2012 to show fans what’s in store for April 2013 when the third-person perspective shooter and science fiction TV show debut. She talks about the project in the exclusive video interview below.
Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully.
Each week, viewers will follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO, while in the game, players will adventure in the new frontier of the San Francisco Bay area. The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of the game will exist in a single universe where their respective narratives will inform one another and evolve together into one overall story.
