Stuart Townsend Finds His Way in the New Reelz Original Series XIII
06.29.12 by Chris
Stuart Townsend's career has taken him from playing the undead in Queen of the Damned to being a part of a team of superheroes in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, to being behind the camera as the director and writer of Battle in Seattle.
In his newest role, Stuart Townsend plays a former secret operative who has been stripped of his memory in Reelz's new original series XIII. He does not know who he is, what he is trained to be or whom he serves. All he has is a tattoo of the Roman Numeral "XIII"…and the skills of a highly trained secret agent. Hunted by a dark anti-government organization, XIII searches for clues that will uncover the secret that makes him so valuable—and so potentially dangerous.
Townsend's co-stars and peers talk about working with the actor on the set of the new Reelz original series.
XIII premieres tonight, right after the season finale of True Justice, at 9 PM ET and 9 PM PT.
XIII also stars Aisha Tyler (24, Friends) as Secret Service Agent Jones; Virginie Ledoyen (The Beach) as Irina, a mercenary hired by the former U.S. President to track XIII; Bond Girl, Caterina Murino (Casino Royale) as Sam, XIII’s trustworthy ally and love interest; Greg Bryk (Immortals, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter) as Amos, a national security officer; Stephen McHattie (Immortals, 2012) as President Carrington; and Ted Atherton (Max Payne, The Border) as Wally Sharidan, the former U.S. President and a possible traitor.
