I was back in the production offices today for my first full half-day of work! Well, more like third-of-a-day’s work, lunch inclusive. And that also counts the roughly half hour I spent sorting through the various items I stored away in my office during my five month hiatus. Akemi needed her knitting needles and yarn.
Anyway, back at it and, on deck today = casting. And LOTS of it! Executive Producer Vanessa Piazza and I convened to review taped auditions for the roles of Devon (61 candidates), Misaki (22 candidates), and Arax Nero (19 candidates) – which took us much of the afternoon. We’ll finish tomorrow by reviewing Nyx’s (62 candidates).
It was interesting to see several former Stargate guest stars in the mix as well. I have to admit – it’s going to be tough.
In the coming days, we’ll also be running auditions for Treihan, Shaddick, Kierken, and Reynaud.
So who the heck are these characters? Well, stick around. In the coming days, I’ll give you a peek at the casting breakdown that went out for each role – which will offer a little more insight into what we have in the works for our thrilling, action-packed, chock-full-o-shocks second season.
In the meantime, how about a few more peeks into what the Production Designer Ian Brock, Set Designer Doug Slater, and Concept Illustrator Sanford Kong have in the works? Feast your eyes, Dark Matter fans!

Dark Matter fans, you are spoiled!
So, what do you think? What’s the deal with those last two pics?
Off to rewrite some scripts! Do drop me a comment to distract me.
