Torchwood Miracle Day July 11


Wednesday, July 6 2011
By Morgan Jeffery

One big cast addition joining Torchwood for new ten-part series Miracle Day is former ER star Mekhi Phifer. The Lie to Me actor plays Rex Matheson, a tough and determined CIA agent who becomes caught up in a global conspiracy and is soon matching wits with Captain Jack Harkness. Tube Talk and a few other journos caught up with Mekhi earlier this year while Torchwood was filming in Cardiff to chat about Rex, romance and rabid fans!


... Q: What is Rex's relationship like with Jack and Gwen?

Mekhi Phifer: "Well when I first come, they hate me, and vice versa! I don't like them either. But then something happens when we get back to the States that forces us to become a team and my character becomes a part of Torchwood ultimately. We're all working together to figure this whole thing out. That's the development of the characters - we get to like each other more and more. I haven't read all the scripts, but I've seen in some of the scripts that we spend a lot of time together..."

Torchwood: Miracle Day premieres on July 8 on Starz in the US and on July 14 on BBC One in the UK.

TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY - WHAT'S ON TV (UK): John Barrowman: 'I'd happily play Jack forever!'

Jul 5, 2011

TV Times magazine talks to John Barrowman about the new series of Torchwood...

... Q: Do you still enjoying playing Captain Jack?

John Barrowman: "This is going to sound really cheesy, but I don't care. I didn't ever expect to be involved in Doctor Who and now Torchwood as someone with an American accent, but the fact that Captain Jack was embraced by the British public, and that I, as an openly gay man, play a huge action hero is absolutely one of the biggest gifts that could ever have been given to me. I'm proud to represent that community, but Jack has become a hero to everybody, which is what makes me so thrilled. If someone said to me, 'John, you are only going to play Captain Jack Harkness for the rest of your life', I would be content..."

Torchwood begins on Thursday July 14 at 9pm on BBC1 and premieres in the US on Friday, July 8 at 10/9C on Starz.

TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY - COLLIDER: Exclusive Arlene Tur Interview

by Christina Radish
July 5th, 2011

On the new Starz drama Torchwood: Miracle Day, premiering on July 8th, actress Arlene Tur plays Dr. Vera Juarez, an attending surgeon in Washington, D.C. when people suddenly stop dying. The sick stay sick and the injured continue to be in pain, but no one dies, with no explanation as to why. As the world crisis grows, Vera’s surgical and emergency room experience sees her recruited to advise on government think-tanks. She quickly finds herself inextricably tangled up with CIA Agent Rex Matheson (Mekhi Phifer) and the mysterious British organization Torchwood, led by Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and dedicated to fighting the strange and bizarre, leading her to realize that this is a much bigger crisis then any of them could have ever imagined.

During a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Arlene Tur talked about joining the popular British series making its first trip overseas, that she thinks Torchwood fans will like the new direction once they give it a chance, how exciting and surprising the story turned out to be by the end of the season, how great it was to work with original cast members John Barrowman and Eve Myles, and that she thinks show creator Russell T. Davies is a brilliant storyteller. She also revealed that she would love to play a superhero or a super-villain in a sci-fi/action movie, and that she would like to try her hand at physical comedy...


... Q: Because they’re so secretive with the show, did they tell you much about who the character was or what the story was, when you were auditioning?

TUR: "They are very secretive. They came out with the fact that she was going to have a relationship with Rex (Mekhi Phifer), who was in the CIA, but that’s about it. They really didn’t tell me about all the involvement with the CIA, and her having to become a fish-out-of-water and go undercover, and that they were going to take her out of her comfort zone so much. That was a joy for me to hear and to read because it was a challenge, as an actress. I was expecting to be mostly in the E.R. and have my work be very medical, in general. It was such a bonus for me. I was very, very excited. Every time I read an episode, it just became better. I got further and further from the E.R..."

ALPHAS - KANSAS CITY STAR: 'Alphas' star David Strathairn on why he continues to work as an actor

Jul. 05, 2011

PASADENA, Calif. - Actor David Strathairn, who's played everything from Edward R. Murrow to a child abuser, pursues acting because he always learns something from it.

"If I'm fortunate enough to get involved in a project that has some pretty good legs under it, people have given thought to it, you're going to learn something," he says, seated in an olive velvet armchair in the lobby of a hotel here.

"In theater I've always learned something about the particular world that the play is about - whether it's 1906 outside of Moscow in a Chekhov play, or an Arthur Miller play. Of course, Shakespeare is extraordinary..." he says.


... His latest quest is the Syfy series, "Alphas," premiering July 11. Strathairn says he was intrigued by the challenge. "It's something I've never explored, developing a character that could have mutations anywhere along the road that would be embraced or not. It's a real wide landscape of character development. Then I really liked what they're trying to do with the series, which is to explore people who have these neurological anomalies that are very plausible.

"It's not, by any means, a superhero sci-fi thing. It's dealing with very day-to-day problems we all have," says Strathairn, who plays neurologist Dr. Lee Rosen, a scientist overseeing a government project to ferret out people with singular abilities..."

TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: 'Torchwood: Miracle Day' Is 'Not A Reboot,' Says Eve Myles

New cast members, a new channel, and a new country, but the star says it's essentially the same series.

7/6/2011 by Jethro Nededog

Torchwood: Miracle Day has fans of the franchise both excited and worried. While it reunites original cast members John Barrowman, Eve Myles, and Kai Owen, it breaks some new ground for the series. It brings the characters to America, throws in several new foils, and premieres to Starz subscribers before it hits the UK. But Myles, who reprises her role as Gwen Cooper, emphasizes that the show still has its soul and then some.

"It’s not a reboot,” Myles tells The Hollywood Reporter. "No, no, no, no. We’re not CSI: Miami overnight, or something else. We’re Torchwood. And it remains the same program, essentially. And we were ferocious, fierce about keeping what Torchwood is, and what kind of story [we] are going to make. And at the heart of it is Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper..."


... While there was only about three weeks of shooting in the UK, much of the filming occurred in parts of Los Angeles and on the Warner Bros. studio lot. And with a host of new American cast members, including Mekhi Phifer and Bill Pullman, Myles tells us that the series pulled it off without getting a total American makeover.

Obviously there’s an American feel to it, because of the circumstances of the show,” she says. “But if the question is more, have we tamed things down or heightened anything else to accommodate it being an American show, then no. It’s still feisty and cheeky and naughty, and dark and thrilling...

Torchwood: Miracle Day premieres Friday at 10 p.m. on Starz.
