Defiance Gets Three New Residents

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - 20:53

Season 3 of Defiance just started production and news from the set has three new characters joining the show. They are:

  1. General Rahm Tak, played by Lee Tergesen (seen on the left of the above photo). Rahm is a ruthless and arrogant leader in the Votanis Collective (think of it as the U.N. of aliens in the future Earth of Defiance). Rahm is a Castithan, well-read, brilliant and a pure strategist who sets his very aggressive sights on the little town of Defiance. You may recognize Lee from his role as Tobias Beecher on HBO's Oz or his recurring roles on American Horror Story: Freak Show, Desperate Housewives, The Americans, Longmire, The Big C and more.
     
  2. T'evgin, played by Conrad Coates (seen in the middle). T'evgin is an Omec, an eighth alien race (yes, Season 3 is introducing another group of aliens!). The Omec are all kinds of badass, having been the overlords of all the other alien races (Irathients, Castithans, Indogene) before everyone fled their dying universe to come to Earth. T'evgin is the leader, so he's the king of the "Don't screw with them" Omec. Conrad Coates is known for roles in The Strain, Saving Hope, Sanctuary, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Nikita and more.
     
  3. Kindzi, played by Nichole Galicia (seen on the right). Kindzi is the daughter of T'evgin and thus the alpha female of the Omec race. Translation: She's all kinds of fierce and scary as hell. Nichole has appeared in the films Django Unchained and Wish I Was Here and on television in CSI: NY.

New faces mean new stories (don't worry - the old gang of Nolan, Irisa, Amanda, Stahma, Datak, Rafe, Alak, Doc Yewll and Berlin will be back). As for what those stories will be ... well, stay tuned.

Defiance returns on June 12, 2015.
