In this journey of the TV Time Machine, we ask you travel with us into a war-like future, as we explore SyFy’s new science fiction drama, Defiance. In this edition of our program, we are pleased to welcome one of the stars of Defiance, Jaime Murray. Ms. Murray’s stellar career in both movies and television includes her work in the BBC series Hustle, playing Lila West in Dexter, and the distaff version of H.G Wells, in SyFy’s long-running hit TV series, Warehouse 13.
In this audio segment, Jaime Murray helps us explore virtually every aspect of this spectacular series, as we peer into a future earth, torn apart by alien wars and social conflict. Again, for those of you intrepid enough to take on a Hellbug, feel free to meet me in St. Louis, as we pull away from the gravitational force of the past, to experience an undeniably defiant future!

Jaime Murray Defiance audio interview
In this segment, host Jim Benson and Jaime Murray (who stars as Stahma Tarr on Defiance), talk about the unique premise of the show, the various alien races that make up the intricate storylines of the series, and the role that Stahma Tarr plays in the political and social conflicts that exist in the future city of Defiance (which was in the past, St. Louis).
Ms. Murray also talks about playing such a strong and significant character, the makeup regimen she has to undergo to transform her into an alien being, and having to learn and master an alien language, created by linguist David Peterson, who created the language used in Game of Thrones. Jaime Murray also talks about how she was named after Jaime Sommers, The Bionic Woman, her appreciation for the science fiction genre and interacting with its fans, and how Defiance is uniquely tied-in to its companion video game.
