Four of the main cast of exciting new Canadian sci-fi series Dark Matter – Melissa O’Neil, Jodelle Ferland, Roger Cross and Zoie Palmer – will be among the guests attending MCM London Comic Con this May.
Adapted by former Stargate writers Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie from their own comic book series, Dark Matter follows the crew of a derelict spaceship who awaken from stasis with no memories of who they are or how they got on board. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets. Following its 2015 debut, Dark Matter has been renewed for a 13-episode second season, due later this year.
Canadian Idol winner Melissa O’Neil plays ‘Two’ on the show, a master fighter and the crew’s de facto leader; Jodelle Ferland (Silent Hill, The Cabin in the Woods) plays ‘Five’, a girl with an affinity for technology and a knack for getting into trouble; Roger Cross (Continuum, Arrow) plays ship’s pilot ‘Six’, an imposing figure whose tough exterior hides a heart of gold; and Lost Girl‘s Zoie Palmer plays ‘The Android’, a wry humanoid robot who acts as the primary interface with the ship’s systems.
