FALLING SKIES Scoop: Scarlett Byrne Talks Portraying The Hybrid Lexi

xG_u9Ogi

From the moment she was born, Alexis Glass-Mason was a very special baby. She could stand on her own even as a baby and she seem to have an inhuman way of staring as if she understood everything around her. She also seemed to age a unusually fast rate, and within months she had gone from being a baby to a toddler to a young child. When we meet Lexi again in Season 4 of FALLING SKIES, she goes through another rapid growth spurt and we shall meet her next as a young woman.

A baby and child no more, Lexi (Scarlett Byrne) has found her place amongst the human survivors and 2nd Mass as a spiritual guide. Her miraculous human/alien hybrid DNA seems to hold the keys to the mysteries of the universe and perhaps the heavens too. While not sure if Lexi could indeed be an angel or emissary of God, some believe that she has been sent to them as a messenger. But is Lexi truly touched by something otherworldly or is she just a young woman who has grown up too fast without her parents to guide her?

In a recent exclusive interview, Scarlett Byrne talked about portraying Lexi as the young woman who seems to have particular sway over those around her, both human and alien. [Read more...]

FALLING SKIES Scoop: Stars Moon Bloodgood, Seychelle Gabriel, Sarah Carter and Doug Jones Talk Season 4 Challenges

falling-skies-season-4

One would think that after nearly 4 years of fighting against the Espheni, Mechs and Skitters that our heroes of the 2nd Mass would be up for any challenge. Yet Season 4 has introduced a few more curveballs and surprises in the ongoing fight to reclaim the planet.

In Season 4 of FALLING SKIES, our heroes face the biggest challenge yet: separation. The 2nd Mass was always strongest when they were all together, fighting the good fight together and knowing that they faced certain death together fueled their passion to fight to the bitter end against the Espheni and their minions. But Season 4 quickly scatters our heroes and they are left to wonder if their friends and family have survived on their own.

While at WonderCon 2014, stars Moon Bloodgood, Seychelle Gabriel, Sarah Carter and Doug Jones teased how their characters survive and what further surprises are in store. For one, baby Lexi is no longer a baby or even a young child anymore; her rapid-aging turns her into a young woman. Separated from her parents Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) and Anne Glass (Moon Bloodgood), Lexi turns to Lourdes (Seychelle Gabriel) as her closest family, leaving Tom and Anne searching frantically for their daughter. Good fortune also reunites Maggie (Sarah Carter) and Ben (Connor Jessup), which leads to a romantic complication. Then as for Cochise and the Volm, they have bigger problems to deal with than the squabbles on Earth. [Read more...]

FALLING SKIES Scoop: Dakota Daulby Talks Reeducation Camps and Humanity’s Survival in Season 4

Returning for its fourth season, FALLING SKIES quickly scatters its heroes and shows how tricky life can be to survive when each of them are on their own. The young Mason son, Matt (Maxim Knight) finds himself caught up in a special Espheni reeducation center. With the world as he knows it long gone, it was probably the last thing he ever expected: to find himself back in school. But like anything with the Espheni, there is always a darker side to seemingly good intentions. The reeducation center is not to really educate in the broader sense, but really to reprogram the surviving children to be compliant members of the Espheni society.

In an exclusive interview, newcomer Dakota Daulby talked about his pivotal role as a teacher inside the reeducation center and the challenges with such a tricky role. [Read more...]

FALLING SKIES Preview: A Spy Is Revealed

In tonight’s new episode of FALLING SKIES, the question that has been hovering on everyone’s minds will be answered: who is the mole?  For weeks, we have seen the destruction wrought by the spy in their midst, including the death of Arthur Manchester (Terry O’Quinn).  With suspicions running high since both Tom (Noah Wyle) and his son Hal (Drew Roy) have been discovered to have had eye bugs infecting them at one point or another, the spy could literally be anyone.  Some are still suspicious that even Tom or Hal could still be an unknowing spy for the enemy — after all, they are the ones who have had the most contact with Karen (Jessy Schram) and she is definitely not herself these days either.

FALLING SKIES Season 3 Preview: New Aliens, New Allies, New Enemies and Lots of Explosive Secrets


 
When we last saw our heroes, they had been welcomed into Charleston, albeit in the most rocky and mistrustful fashion.  For not only had our heroes not come alone, they had brought a mutual enemy to the Charleston doorstep.  Rebel skitters or not, the survivors in Charleston were not quite ready to align with an alien species – even one that would help them fight back against the Espheni.  In the previous two seasons, our heroes not only fought off skitters and their never-ending stream of mechs, they had managed to strike back against the Espheni overlords.  They had proven that it was possible to fight for the planet; and the war was not over yet.  That kind of triumph of human spirit and ingenuity made Charleston take notice of the 2nd Mass.
