Stepping out of the haunted village hall for a break from a dance with the supernatural, Simon Merrells took the time to rendezvous with HeyUGuys to discuss his foray into horror with Judas Ghost. Probably most recognised for his role on TV’s Spartacus: War of the Damned in which he played the villainous Crassus with brutal pomp, Merrells is a regular face on both the big and the small screen.
During the course of our brief conversation he shared with us how he discovered his love of performance, and storytelling, as well as his early memories of horror’s most famous monsters and authors. Whilst reflecting on filmmaking as a musical journey, along with the fortunes of the modern short film he invited us inside the village hall to discuss his one location supernatural horror.
Why a career in acting? Was there that one inspirational moment?

1.6 The Exiles
After last week’s disappointingly weak instalment, The Musketeers sees both a change in focus and pace in this week’s episode, The Exiles. Gone is the emphasis on fleshing out the Musketeers' back stories, and in its place a political thriller involving a King with mum issues, a King’s mum with king issues and finally – but no means least, a Musketeer with attachment issues.
Despite now being de-shackled from delving into the Musketeers' past, the plot itself doesn’t break any new ground. The King’s mother, Marie de Medici, risks execution by returning to her son after apparent attempts on her life. Elsewhere, D’Artagnan and Aramis are charged with the safe escort of a mother, her son and a priest to the Cardinal for reasons unknown. »
(Cbr) Few actors craft a villain like Mark Pellegrino does: As Jacob, he tormented Jack and the other survivors over four seasons of "Lost"; as Lucifer, Pellegrino made the Winchesters’ lives a living hell on "Supernatural"; and on "Being Human", his dead Bishop continues to haunt poor Aidan. That’s not even mentioning his devilish roles on "Dexter" and "Revolution". But these days, viewers can catch Pellegrino hunting down and killing super-powered adolescents as Jedikiah Price on The CW drama "The Tomorrow People". The ruthless head of a secret organization called Ultra, Jedikiah wants nothing more than to annihilate the next step in evolution, these Tomorrow People, before they rise up and wipe out the inferior human race. However, those goals have become increasingly complicated: His nephew Stephen (Robbie Amell) is one of the Tomorrow People, and so is Jedikiah’s lover Morgan (Carly Pope). Plus, Ultra’s enigmatic top dog, »

Stephen (Robbie Amell) does get to be the hero throughout the rest of the first season, but there will be a lot of hurdles on the way. "You can only play double agent for so long before you're going to be found out," says Klemmer. "Stephen's worlds are on a collision course ... For the back half [of the season], it's definitely much messier. His alter-ego and his ego get all scrambled up and a lot of secrets come out."
