Key Cast Announced for Killjoys

Casting details for upcoming Space / Syfy series Killjoys has been revealed as production begins on the 10 episode drama.

Hannah John-Kamen, Aaron Ashmore and Luke Macfarlane will star as “a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters — or “Killjoys” — as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody, class war.”

More casting details should be announced soon. Production starts on August 5th in Toronto, and the series will debut in 2015.

If you haven’t heard about Killjoys yet, it’s created and written by showrunner Michelle Lovretta (Lost Girl), directed by Chris Grismer (Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars).

Here’s the character info about the three leads from the press release:

Hannah John-Kamen stars as the gorgeous, complicated, and deadly Dutch. A top-level Killjoy, she’s a much loved and charming presence in her community, with a unique gift for earning people’s trust and respect regardless of their class. Under her banter and protective flirtations, there is pain, maturity, and a deep solemnity resulting from a dark secret past.

Aaron Ashmore takes on the role of John Jaqobis, a Level 3 Killjoy who, despite his profession, is a peacemaker who hates conflict. Cheerful and kind-hearted, John prefers not to fight, but his sarcastic wit has put him into the fray enough over the years to teach him how to do it well, and dirty. Give this man any machine or situation, and he can fix it, build it, and fly it.

Luke Macfarlane stars as D’avin, a handsome, rugged, sarcastic, and incredibly loyal former soldier. He dreamed of enlisting in the military since boyhood, and his hard-won expertise in tactics, manoeuvres, and hand-to-hand combat make him an instant asset to the Killjoy team.
