Series co-creator Ryan Copple announced today that Alessandro Juliani has joined the cast of Riese the Series.
Best know for his role as Felix Gaeta on Battlestar Galactica, Juliani has had a long career in music, as well as in film and television, spanning more than twenty years. His baritone voice delighted fans and brought them to tears when his character Gaeta sang a threnody in the BSG episode, “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”. In addition to singing professionally in choirs such as Montreal’s Christ Church Cathedral, Juliani has worked extensively in voice acting, being featured in such roles as the voice of L in the American version of Death Note and Gambit in X-Men: Evolution, as well as several other cartoons. He can currently be seen as Dr. Hamilton on Smallville.
Copple says of Juliani, “He’ll play Garin, best friend of Rand. He’s the calm and thoughtfulness to Rand’s impetuous and impatience.” He will appear in Chapter 2 of Riese which begins filming this week.
Riese is a sci-fi/fantasy series richly influenced by history, mythology, folklore and steampunk. It follows a young woman and her companion, a wolf named Fenrir, who travel through a collapsing world trying to piece together the fragmented memories of her past while attempting to evade the dangerous religious cult that hunts her. With a high budget compared to other web series, and filmed on the RED camera in high definition, the show is visually beautiful. The wardrobe, music and depth of story all contribute to creating the world of Eleysia.
Riese features sci-fi regulars such as Christine Chatelain (Sanctuary, Supernatural, The Collector), Sharon Taylor (Smallville, Stargate Atlantis, Eureka), Patrick Gilmore (Stargate Universe, Battlestar Galactica), Ben Cotton (Harper’s Island, Stargate Atlantis, Taken), Ryan Robbins (Sanctuary, Caprica, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis), Peter Kelamis (Stargate Universe, Dragon Ball Z, The X-Files), and Emilie Ullerup (Sanctuary, jPod, Battlestar Galactica).
