Exclusive: Robin Dunne Has Found His 'Sanctuary'

The Syfy series is out on Blu-ray and we chat to one of the stars

By Michael Simpson | Friday, June 18, 2010


Given that Sanctuary is filmed on an ultra-high definition camera, the Vancouver-shot fantasy series seems tailor-made for Blu-ray. It was surprising last year, then, when the First Season came to the home entertainment market only on DVD. Thankfully that has been rectified this week with the release of both Seasons One and Two on BD. Cinema Spy has a full review of those coming up. In the meantime we are marking the occasion with an interview with one of the show's stars, Robin Dunne.

Dunne plays Will Zimmerman, assistant and protégé to monster hunter Dr Helen Magnus (played by Stargate's Amanda Tapping). Magnus runs the sanctuary of the show's title. The unnaturally old but beautiful scientist uses the sanctuary to study and provide a safe have for so-called abnormals. These are mutant beings who might be seen as threatening by 'normal' humanity.

Sanctuary started life as a short Web series. It was popular enough to be picked up by a collection of broadcasters in various countries, including Syfy in the United States and The Movie Network/Movie Central in Canada (later moving to the SPACE Channel). In our chat Dunne discussed what it's like to have been there from the beginning, his character's evolution through the Web series and both seasons that have aired so far (a third is now in production) and why he thinks he has the best job in the world.


A brief excerpt:

CinemaSpy: What are the highlights for Will Zimmerman in Season Two?
Robin Dunne: The two-hour opening is really amazing. We ended on a serious cliffhanger on Season One and that just gets a hell of a lot harder and the stakes just skyrocket. From the get-go Season Two is just a major rollercoaster ride. We do have some amazing episodes. We have a couple of two-handers this season, which are a lot of fun. Amanda Tapping has directed an episode, which is a wonderful episode, and it was a really big treat to work with her as an actor and director. There's nothing that she can't do. Also, stylistically we've done some different stuff [in Season Two]. The shows now look a little different. The scope of the show's going to get a little bigger. And I think because of the stylistic changes the audience is going to get even more of a peek into the show and to see what all the characters are going through all the time. I think definitely it's going to blow your mind.

STARGATE SG-1: The Power Behind the Throne by Steve Savile

SG-1 are asked by the Tok’ra to rescue a creature known as Mujina. The last of its species, Mujina is devoid of face or form and draws its substance from the needs of those around it. The creature is an archetype – a hero for all, a villain for all, depending upon whose influence it falls under. And the Goa’uld Apophis, understanding the potential for havoc Mujina offers, has set his heart on possessing the creature…

STARGATE SG-1: Four Dragons by Diana Dru Botsford

Shortly after Daniel Jackson returns from his time among the ascended Ancients, he volunteers to join an archaeological survey of Chinese ruins on P3Y-702. But after accidentally activating a Goa’uld transport ring, Daniel finds himself a prisoner of the goa’uld Lord Yu. Blaming himself for Daniel’s capture, Jack O’Neill vows to get him back – even if it means taking matters into his own hands.

STARGATE ATLANTIS: Brimstone by David Niall Wilson & Patricia Lee Macomber

When a moon inexplicably leaves its planetary orbit for a collision course with its own sun, Rodney McKay’s interest is peaked. What he discovers is enough to make him dance, for an entire Ancient city – the size of Atlantis – is there for the taking. But the city is not as abandoned as he had first believed and the team soon encounter a sect of unascended Ancients living far beneath the its surface…

STARGATE ATLANTIS: Death Game by Jo Graham

Waking up on an alien world, in the wreckage of a Puddle Jumper, is never good. Waking up with no idea where you are or how you got there is much worse. Suffering from a serious head wound, John Sheppard slowly puts the pieces together and discovers that his team is scattered across a tropical archipelago, unable to communicate with each other and cut off from the Stargate. Badly injured, he and Teyla are taken prisoner by the local population and sent as tribute to the planet’s mysterious overlord. Meanwhile, Ronon, McKay, and Zelenka form an unlikely rescue team as they search the planet for their friends...

Look out for more news soon, including details of books hitting the shops before Christmas and the launch of our groundbreaking new Stargate AtlantisLegacy’ series that picks up where season five left off.
