ON May 8th, The Graham Norton Show welcomes Doctor Who‘s Karen Gillan (Amy Pond), who discusses life in the TARDIS and her experience so far with the legendary Sci-Fi franchise. Karen talks about her recent trip to New York City promoting Doctor Who and how shocked she was with the response to the series from American audiences and the lines of people who waited hours to see the premiere episode at Village East Theatre. The actress also talks about her kissing scenes in Doctor Who and says her boyfriend is cool with her “snogging” scenes. 

Also on the show is Hollywood actress Jennifer Lopez, who talks about her glittering career and latest film The Backup Plan. She discusses being a working mother and wants to instill the same work ethics in her children as she had growing up. And staying on the theme of her rom-com, Back Up Plan, Graham had a little fun by combining pictures of himself and Jennifer to see what their children could possibly look like. And QI and Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies is in the comedy chair talking about his career and fatherhood, plus music from Ben’s Brother. The Graham Norton Show airs Saturday, May 8th @ 10:00 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America

The Phantom Premieres On Syfy In June

May 5, 2010

THE Syfy Channel’s original four-hour movie event The Phantom, produced by Muse Entertainment and distributed by RHI Entertainment, will premiere on Sunday, June 20th, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. EST/PST. In the Father’s Day broadcast, The Phantom’s iconic ring is passed from father to son in an all-new, updated adventure for the legendary character.

Ryan Carnes (Desperate Housewives, Doctor Who) stars as The Phantom and his alter ego Kit Walker in this re-imaginated version of the classic comic book transported to present day. Isabella Rossellini (Blue Velvet) guest-stars in a villainous turn as Lithia, the head of an experimental mind control program. Also starring are Sandrine Holt (24, The L Word) as The Phantom’s trusted advisor, Guran, and Cameron Goodman as Walker’s love interest, Renny.

A favorite costumed hero for nearly 75 years, “The Phantom,” created by Lee Falk, relies on his wits, physical strength and skill with weapons over superhuman powers. In this contemporary version, directed by Paolo Barzman (The Last Templar), young Kit Walker survives an attempt on his life, but his mother’s life is lost. Flash forward nearly 20 years and Kit, raised by loving adoptive parents, is now a young law student who, unbeknownst to him, is next in line to become The Phantom, a role passed down from generation to generation in his family since the 1500’s. Hoping to stop the ascension of the next Phantom, the notorious and deadly Singh crime syndicate sets a plan in motion to kill Kit and simultaneously start an international war.
