Welcome to Earth’s new wild frontier in Showcase and SyFy’s new series, Defiance, the futuristic, but very “wild west” drama set in 2046 as mankind faces life on a planet that seems barely recognizable.
Toronto actress Katheryn Winnick–best known for her roles on Bones and A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III–recently returned to her home town to talk about her part in History’s new series, Vikings, where she stars as the tough-as-nails shield maiden, Lagertha Lothbrok.
