Tell us about your character Cormac. How does he relate to Winston and Charon?

"Well, he's kind of like their mentor, or actually, mentor or tormentor, I'm not sure which. But he's rather a nefarious character who's like a father figure to them, and they perceive him that way when they're young, but as they grow and begin to analyze who he really is, they realize he's probably not the father figure he pretends to be. He's pretty selfish in his own motives and has used them in an ill way, and I think they're burned by that and they want to get even. Rightly so."


First Look: Nhung Kate as Yen in The Continental

In the exclusive first-look image obtained by us, Nhung Kate looks strong and fearless as she stands in front of a fireplace. The actress plays Yen, Frankie's wife who will do whatever it takes to be with him. She starts living underground and off the grid after Frankie, played by Ben Robson, steals something. Yen is protective, fierce and remains suspicious of everyone's motives to keep her family safe. She is a remarkable fighter and represents second chances.
