Don’t miss Helix this Friday

Luciana will make her first appearance on Helix on Friday, February 7, at 10/9c on Syfy! The episode is called “Aniqatiga” and is the sixth episode of the season.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see Luciana play yet another completely new character, especially since we really don’t know anything about this particular character, other than her name, Anana, and that she’ll stick around for the rest of the season.

Less than one week until Helix premieres

In less than one week, on Friday, January 10 at 10/9c, Ronald D. Moore’s (Battlestar Galactica) new show Helix will premiere on Syfy. The first two episodes of this series about a virus outbreak at an Arctic research facility will be shown back to back with only limited commercial interruption.

Luciana will be in most of the episodes of Helix, but we don’t know in which episodes exactly, so we don’t know whether she’ll be in the premiere. According to IMDb, her character is called Anana, and Luciana mentioned the character is very different from the ones she has played so far, which sounds very intriguing.

Syfy has made the first 15 minutes of the premiere available online, you can watch it here:

Break Your Straight

While the topic fans of Luciana are most excited about currently is probably Ron Moore’s new series Helix, which will premiere in January, Luciana also has a role in the independent short film Break Your Straight.

The short film, which is described as dark comedy, will be set in a parallel universe where same-sex relationships are the norm and will focus on a straight character named Eric, who is sent to a camp in order to change his sexual orientation.

Luciana will play a character named Abby. The project is being produced by actress Emma Caulfield (who played Anya on Buffy) and was funded through a Kickstarter campaign. Their goal was to get $12000, in the end they got more than $18000.

  • November 8,2004: This was a very special day – the day that started it all, in a way.

  • November 3 and 17, 2006: The episodes “Torn” and “Hero” of Battlestar Galactica air.
  • November 9-11, 2007: Luciana attends the “Wolf: Crossroads” convention. It’s her first con in Germany, and her second one in Europe after the Utopia 8, which had been held just three weeks earlier. Both editors of this blog were there as well and have very fond memories of the event. :-)
  • November 27-29, 2009: Luciana is a surprise guest for the “Mission Starfury: The Cylon Attack” convention near London, England. Other guests include Luciana’s Battlestar Galactica and Caprica castmates Leah Cairns, Kate Vernon, Jamie Bamber, James Callis and Alessandra Torresani as well as several actors from Firefly.
