This past weekend on April 18, 2015 we had the awesome opportunity to interview the fantabulous actress Kyra Zagorsky!
We at WHR You Decide know that millions worldwide all have one thing in common beyond loving the series: Renew Helix!
We have now seen Dr. Julia Walker grow through two seasons of Helix. A strong and intelligent woman, Julia endured multiple events in season one – from being infected thanks to Peter, to learning that her happy summers with mom in Montana were not at entirely real.
And on top of all of it, she learns that the brilliant mad scientist Hiroshi Hatake (Hiroyuki Sanada) is her father! In the end, Julia, like Hatake, is an immortal, and her “new” life begins – will Doctor Julia Walker continue his research and protect his legacy? Does she go to work for Ilaria?
Well, we know from season two that the answer to those questions is a resounding yes – to all of the above. We can joke and say that regarding Amy (Alison Louder), Michael (Steven Weber), and Anne (Severn Thompson), the “apple” did not fall far from the tree (get it?); we can say the same of Julia and Hatake – she is driven like he is, she is willing to sacrifice the few for the good of the many, and seems to not exactly fit in with Ilaria.
Julia has escaped turmoil over the past two years, however it looks like things have caught up with her in the next 30…will she take Soren’s (Jimmy Thorburn) blood and survive? We’ll have to wait and see – if we and the rest of the Helix universe is the fortunate to receive a season 3 (please, please, please!).
The woman behind Julia, Kyra Zagorsky, is just as driven. An entertainer who caught the acting bug in high school and never looked back, with a first love of Shakespeare and the theatre, Kyra has transitioned into film and television.
With roles in the Stargate franchise (Atlantis and SGU) and Smallville and Supernatural, Falling Skies and Soldiers of the Apocalypse, she has found her way into our living rooms many times over. Kyra exudes professionalism in all she does, and that shows through in all forms of media that we see – from the small screen to the big, and even in print.
A master and student of acting, Kyra is often cast in a role that allows her to portray a strong and intelligent woman, often permitting her to use the various martial arts that she has also trained in over the years.
Dividing her time between Los Angeles, Montreal, and now Vancouver, this mother of two and wife to The Flash’s David Singh (Patrick Sabongui) sat with us to chat about Helix, her career, and a few other tales the other day. Helix season 2 may have concluded, but when you think about it, Continuum season really is just not that far away. So, sit back, put your feet up and take a listen and enjoy – I dare you to not crack a smile while you listen!
