The upcoming Canadian launch of Riese: Kingdom Falling means plenty of exciting cast interviews and special behind the scenes segments.
Patrick Gilmore (Trennan) and Sharon Taylor (Empress Amara) talk about their characters, steampunk, and what it was like to shoot the fight sequence on Urban Rush – a Vancouver based talk show. The video has been uploaded on Youtube, so you should be able to view it no matter where you live.
