Grant Bowler & Mr. Will-W.
New Zealand-born Actor Grant Bowler is a familiar face to North Americans, having had high-profile stints on HBO's popular Series True Blood as Cooter and ABC's Ugly Betty as Connor Owens.  After playing various Supporting Roles, he is now set for the spotlight as the Leading Man on the SyFy Network's Defiance. The Sci-Fi/Fantasy Series currently is filming in Toronto for the next month under the direction of Scott Stewart, who helmed both 2011's Priest and Legion.

Defiance has Bowler starring as Jeb Nolan, a former Soldier who returns home to find his Hometown in ruins after a group of Aliens arrive on Earth, trying to claim it as their own after their Solar System is destroyed.  The Series also stars Julie Benz (Dexter, Desperate Housewives) and Tony Curran (The Adventures of Tintin, The Pillars of the Earth).

Bowler was incredibly kind to stop for a quick Photo and a chat with myself and a couple big Fans of Ugly Betty while off to a Sunday night Movie, although he and his Friend still had yet to decide what they were to see!

Fans of GCB also have something to be excited about as he appears later this season as Mason Massey in a brief Arc.
