Lost Girl follows supernatural Bo (Anna Silk), a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy (sometimes called “chi”) of humans. She was raised by human parents and had no reason to believe she was anything other than a nice, sweet girl until she drained the life from a boyfriend during their first sexual encounter. Now she is afraid and distant. She stays alone and discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore who can pass for humans while feeding off them. Bo is relieved to find out she is not alone, but frightened to find out the secrets of whom she is and where she came from. Lost Girl stars Kris Holden-Ried, Ksenia Solo, Zoie Palmer, Rick Howland, K.C. Collins and Anna Silk.
Silk, Palmer and Holden-Ried took part in a Q&A to discuss the new series. Lost Girl has a great time slot after the second season premiere of Syfy’s series Being Human. The cast is excited for viewers to see the series and they believe it is a unique show with darkness, humor and it is very sexy, Silk said, “It is like nothing I have ever seen on television.”
Silk is happy to bring the character Bo and the series to U.S. viewers. She feels incredibly fortunate to play this role and is learning new things every day. She also feels stronger thanks to Bo’s tough personality. The series has been compared to Buffy The Vampire Slayer and HBO’s True Blood, but the cast insists it is new and fresh. They appreciate being in the same category, but believe Syfy is bringing something new to viewers.
Discovering who they are is a big factor for the cast as they play out these unusual scenes. Palmer’s character Lauren is discovering that she is indebted to Light Fae, especially the leader of the Light Fae, which is one of the mythological beings. Holden-Ried’s character Dyson believes his discovery of Bo and her journey is very important. He has been a , and Bo becomes the center of his world.
The actors are fresh, new and talented and bring a lot to this series. It is certainly a different mythology to add a series with a succubus, but it gives Syfy viewers something more to take in. There are many different energies and aspects working for the series. The actors are also part of the social networks and credit them for helping to make the series a success. The social networks allow them to interact with fans and take in feedback from viewers.
They are talented and steaming up Syfy with this sexy new series, so make sure to watch Lost Girl when it premieres Monday, January 16 on the Syfy channel at 10/9c.
