I recently had the opportunity to interview actress Danielle Nicolet, who plays Tess De La Vega in the Syfy Channel Original Movie Red Faction: Origins. The film premiered on June 4 at 9 pm, and is the first film based on the successful Red Faction video game franchise. The newest game, Red Faction: Armageddon, arrives in stores on Tuesday, June 7. Check out the trailer HERE.
Red Faction: Origins is set twenty-five years after the events of the popular 2009 Red Faction game Guerrilla, and follows Jake Mason (Brian J. Smith), the last remaining son of protagonist Alec Mason (Robert Patrick). Jake discovers that his sister Lyra (Tamzin Mechant), who was kidnapped 12 years ago, is still alive, and he sets out to save her.
Nicolet and I spoke breifly this afternoon and she revealed what interested her in the role of Tess, what her favorite video games are and more.
Like many actors and actresses, Nicolet has also branched out into script writing. She recently finsihed a script for a screwball comedy, which she co-wrote with her friend and writing parter, Carrie Genzel. Be on the lookout for new projects that Nicolet is working on, perhaps we will see her script get optioned in the future.
