Jemima Rooper and Co-Creators Johnny Capps and Howard Overman Talk Atlantis, the Biggest Threats and Villains of This Season, and More

30 November 2013 6:12 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The fantasy-adventure series Atlantis, currently airing on Saturday nights on BBC America, brings the iconic lost city to life, re-imagined for a new generation.  When Jason (Jack Donnelly) sets out to find his father, his journey leads him to a strange, yet impossibly familiar land full of dangerous creatures, legendary heroes and palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants.  While there, Jason is befriended by an overweight, overly-confident Hercules (Mark Addy) and the studious young Pythagoras (Robert Emms), comes face-to-face with the fearsome Minotaur, does battle with the dead, meets a sweet girl named Medusa (Jemima Rooper), and catches the eye of the beautiful Ariadne (Aiysha Hart), the princess of Atlantis whose family and royal standing restricts who she may love. During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actress Jemima Rooper (who plays “Medusa”) and co-creators Johnny Capps and Howard Overman talked about what made them »

'Atlantis': 'Merlin's' creators take on time-traveling Greek mythology

23 November 2013 2:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Myths are malleable, and BBC America's "Atlantis" twists ancient ones into new shapes.The lush 13-episode series launches Saturday, Nov. 23. Set on the lost island of Atlantis, it has a filmic look and tremendous fun with Greek myths.

In this, Hercules is an overweight blowhard played by Mark Addy ("Game of Thrones"). Medusa (Jemima Rooper, "Hex"), the hideous Gorgon who had snakes for hair, is now a sweet young woman. And Jason (Jack Donnelly, "Dancing on the Edge") is a hot traveler from the present.

"What struck me most is why hasn't anyone used this material before," Rooper tells Zap2it. "They are reinventing the stories as they want."

Fittingly, the series opens at sea, with Jason on a quest to find his long-lost father, whose submarine disappeared. Jason's small sub spins out of control and crashes, and he washes up, naked, on a foreign shore.

The Originals Recaplet: History Lesson

29 October 2013 6:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The CW’s The Originals unleashed a litany of mythology this Tuesday, including answers about witchy Davina’s mighty abilities, Sophie’s mission and the power struggle in New Orleans.

Although the hour was exposition-heavy, the various conversations and flashbacks were expertly threaded together, filling in the blanks (so that’s how Marcel came to be Davina’s protector) and taking some unexpected turns (let’s just say those Deveraux sisters are crafty).

Here are five things we learned during the intel-packed episode:

'Outlander' casts Laura Donnelly as Jenny Fraser Murray

17 October 2013 10:06 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The Starz series "Outlander" has added another piece to its cast in Laura Donnelly.

Donnelly, who co-starred in ABC's "Missing" in 2012, will play Jenny Fraser Murray in the series based on Diana Gabaldon's novels. The character is the older sister of 18th century Scottish warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and runs the family estate, Lallybroch, when Jamie is away. She's married to Jamie's best friend, Ian Murray.

Jenny also has a good relationship -- at least at first -- with Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), the 20th century woman transported back in time and forced into a marriage with Jamie.

Donnelly's other credits include "The Fall," a British minseries distributed on Netflix here, and guest appearances on "Merlin" and "Hex."

"Outlander," executive produced by Ron Moore ("Battlestar Galactica"), is filming in Scotland and is scheduled to premiere in the spring. »

Production Designer Paul Cripps on creating Atlantis

2 October 2013 3:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Juliette Harrisson 3 Oct 2013 - 07:00

Juliette talks creating Classical Greece in modern-day Morocco and Wales with Atlantis production designer Paul Cripps...

Having worked on Merlin, Demons and Hex, Paul Cripps is no stranger to creating a colourful fantasy show on a budget. We sat down to chat with him about his work on Atlantis, from what inspired his set design to the practicalities of putting the show together in under a year. 

What can you tell us about the different styles and influences on the set? 

We tried to avoid too much of Classical Greece. Most of the Greek myths were set in an earlier time anyway. Everybody has an expectation of what ancient Greece looks like, and it’s normally Classical Greece [c480 – 323 BC, with the architecture of Classical Athens particularly well known – DoG], but we wanted to move away and make it a little bit more tribal, a bit earlier, so we’ve taken it more towards Bronze Age Greece, »

Atlantis: Jemima Rooper on myths, Medusa, fantasy, humour & more...

Interview Juliette Harrisson 24 Sep 2013 - 06:50

Juliette chats to Atlantis actress Jemima Rooper about what to expect from Medusa in the new BBC One series...

You might know her from Hex, Lost in Austen or perhaps as George from the 1990s adaptations of The Famous Five, but this autumn Jemima Rooper will be appearing in a rather more exotic role, as the soon-to-be cursed Medusa in BBC One’s Atlantis. We met her at the set to quiz her about what we can expect. 

When we first meet Rooper’s Medusa on screen, she won’t yet have her famously dangerous barnet of snake-hair. “She comes into the lives of the three protagonists and has a lovely romance with one of them… unless the curse sets everything off on a completely different course,” Rooper tells us. “I now know how the curse comes about and what happens, but we’ve yet to film it. »
