I’m rewatching Defiance, the sci-fi tv series where Stephanie Leonidas plays the Irathian Irisa. I came across this ‘Drowned Irath’ look when Irisa came in from the rain (in the penultimate episode of season one) and thought it deserved some screenshots.
I don’t think there’s been a sci-fi character that I’ve been rooting for more. Life has dealt her blow after blow (she’s been the vessel for much evil as well), yet she comes out as a courageous and loveable woman. We/I need more Defiance.
Stephanie Leonidas – Rough Magazine
Found this old interview video with Stephanie Leonidas for Rough Magazine, around the time of Defiance season 2. She recently posted a photo from that shoot, which reminded me of it.
