Re-occurring Season 2

We will try to collect as much information about each re-occurring character here before it airs and then fill in what we could not afterwards.

JMS AT SCI FI MAGAZINE SAID:
APR.1.2003
We gave a short shrift to our other characters [in season one] like Markus, Erin, Theo and others. But this is still an ensemble show and what we want to do this year is to bring those characters up a little bit more and do more with them, in interesting ways.

Markus Alexander (Peter Stebbings)
IMDb Listing: Click Here -- Official Site: None -- Fan Site: Click Here
Re-occurring Character (S1 & S2)
Click for larger image

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION:
Markus is the leader of the people who lives in a place called "Thunder Mountain", a colony set inside what used to be a military compound. Markus feels the weight of the world on his shoulders, as he delicately balances his world in Thunder Mountain and the outside world, which threatens its existence. Markus is a meditative man who has learned to trust his instinct.

He has one big secret that will be revealed in Man of Iron, Woman Under Glass however, the episode where we really get to know Markus is in Firewall.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
This character's name was originally called "David Quijana".

ACTOR INFORMATION:
Click for larger image Limited information available. Peter was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and has appeared in shows such as Madison, Relic Hunter, The Outer Limits and The X-Files. He was nominated twice for a Gemini Award for Best Actor in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role. He is also married to one of Ingrid Kavelaars closest and dearest friends.

GREGORY NOVECK (CO-PRODUCER) AT CULT TIMES SAID:
MAR.1.2003
Markus is the leader of Thunder Mountain, which is the final enclave of civilization which was set up by the scientists who may or may not have unleashed the plague.

STEBBINGS AT CULT TIMES SAID:
JAN.1.2003
As I began running through my lines, I quickly discovered what an interesting character Markus was. I was drawn to his humanity and the complexity of his struggle to keep this little world of his called Thunder Mountain together in what is otherwise a chaotic universe.

STEBBINGS AT TV ZONE SAID:
DEC.1.2002
Markus is a wise old soul. He recognizes a certain integrity in Jeremiah, and in Kurdy, too. However, Jeremiah is the one he zeroes in on, and I think it's because Markus sees a side of himself in Jeremiah. It's a more measured, tempered, calculating side which is why there's a love/hate relationship between them.

My character is a leader with incredible responsibility and power. Conversely, Markus is also able to reveal his insecurities in the more private moments he has with his peers. I love that. Sadly, we rarely get to see that in real life. Our leaders usually aren't allowed to show us their vulnerable side. On Jeremiah we get glimpses of that, and I think we are endeared to the characters and their struggle because of it.

Here's a man in his late twenties who has never made love to a woman he cares for. Theirs is such an intellectual relationship. It's a love affair that is truly one of the mind. To be honest, I also feel there's a bit of an Oedipus complex going on. It goes back to when Markus's mother died outside the door to Thunder Mountain. Because she was infected with the disease he was unable to properly say goodby to her. The last moments they shared were through a monitor and their hands "touching" on the screen. The same is true with Meaghan in that my character is unable to touch her.

JMS AT RASTB5M SAID:
MAR.4.2002
Was Marcus Alexander named for: Marcus the Ranger? Marcus Aurelius? Alexander the Great?

The latter two.

Erin (Ingrid Kavelaars)
IMDb Listing: Click Here -- Official Site: Click Here -- Fan Site: None
Re-occurring Character (S1 & S2)
Click for larger image

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION:
Erin on the other hand, we should see a lot more of. She is Markus' right hand and probably the number two person in power and influence around TM. Erin is a very determined and through in her work. She has an incredibly strong loyalty to Markus.

Even though her character may have initially sounded quite similar to Sarah, they are not the same. Our original assumption that Erin replaces Sarah appears to have been false.

ACTOR INFORMATION:
Click for larger image Ingrid was born in London Ontario, Canada on March 20th, 1971 and grew up in Ontario, Canada. She has a twin sister Monique and are the youngest of 5 children. Ingrid has appeared in two feature films and several TV Shows. She is probably best known for her starring role in Code Name: Eternity and now Jeremiah.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
Read our interview with the Sharp, Stunning and Sophisticated Ingrid Kavelaars conducted by THE ABYSS in September 2002 and learn more about this facinating woman who plays Erin.

ADDITIONAL PHOTOS:
Visit our Image Libray for more photos of Erin.

KAVELAARS AT CULT TIMES SAID:
JAN.1.2003
Erin is second-in-command at Thunder Mountain, and she's worked her butt off to get to that position. She's a tough girl in the sense that she's amongst the boys 90% of the time and she can really hold her own. When I began playing her she was more apt to to at times sit back and listen, observe and learn. In the show's second season, which we're currently filming, Erin has become far more vocal. She has an opinion and people are listening to her.

Lee Chen (Byron Lawson)
IMDb Listing: Click Here -- Official Site: None -- Fan Site: None
Re-occurring Character (S1 & S2)
Click for larger image

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION:
Deadly serious, Lee is Markus Alexander's head of security for Thunder Mountain. Lee is a paranoid, intensely suspicious man. He was one of two people that Simon trusted and recruited for their cause. His relationship with Markus is a tense one, as Lee fears that Markus is far too trusting, and his hunches could cost them their lives one day. Lee does not trust Jeremiah or Kurdy and is keeping his eye out for any trouble they might cause.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
Originally, this character's name was "Lee Takashima" but after learning of Mr. Lawson's heritage, JMS decided to give Lee a Chinese family name.

ACTOR INFORMATION:
Click for larger image Vancouver resident Byron Lawson is an exciting actor, a relative newcomer to film and television who has captured the attention of directors and casting agents. He is an avid athlete, excelling in martial arts, gymnastics, hockey, rollerblading, bodybuilding, skiing, snowboarding, and more. Byron Lawson has appeared on television in Showtime's Off Season, First Wave, These Arms of Mine and the feature film Romeo Must Die.

Re-occurring Character (S1 & S2)
Click for larger image

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION:
She is the "woman under glass" who was first introduced in Man of Iron, Woman Under Glass. She was brought into Thunder Mountain before it was locked down because she had contracted the Big Death but did not die from it. She was kept in isolation where Markus found her and they fell in love. She provides a kind of moral compass to Markus as well.

Devon (Robert Wisden)
IMDb Listing: Click Here -- Official Site: None -- Fan Site: None
Re-occurring Character (S1 & S2)
Click for larger image

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION:
Not a lot is known about Devon but he appears to have been a biochemist who probably worked for the government. He had contacts at Valhalla Sector which is how Jeremiah first heard about it. During the first seaosn, he only appeared in flash backs and Jeremiah's dreams but now he is a key player in season two. He is the father of Jeremiah and his brother Michael who also took in Ezekiel as his son after the Big Death.

ACTOR INFORMATION:

Theo Coleridge (Kim Hawthorne)
IMDb Listing: Click Here -- Official Site: None -- Fan Site: None
Re-occurring Character (S1 & S2)
Click for larger image

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION:
Theo works out of a rundown High School and she controls or is the leader of the town that she works out of. She is a harsh but respected leader since she takes as much as she gives to those who rally around her. She appears to be a highly motivated individual.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
Originally, they intended to cast this character as a guy who dressed in drag and was quite messed up sexually. Apparently, they couldn't find a man who could bring the right qualities that they were looking for. So, when Kim showed up, she portrayed the character they were looking for. Also, according to Showtime's Official Site, her last name was originally "Drake".

ACTOR INFORMATION:
Click for larger image Slim pickings to be found on the net but Kim has appeared in shows such as Dark Angel, Andromeda, Stargate SG-1, The Outer Limits, Da Vinci's Inquest, Cosby, In the Heat of the Night, All My Children, Another World and the feature film, Along Came a Spider.

RELATED PRODUCTS:

ADDITIONAL PHOTOS:

JMS AT SCI FI MAGAZINE SAID:
APR.1.2003
I always like to see characters arc and change over time. Theo is like [Babylon 5's] G'Kar, in the sense that she's starting off as this phenomenal bad guy, and eventually, through circumstances somewhat beyond her control, she ends up allied with our guys, first in an uncomfortable way and then where they're gradually building a rough respect for each other. [In season two,] she's much more involved with our side of things.

RUSSELL MULCAHY AT SHOWTIME SAID:
MAR.8.2002
Then Kim turned up. A small black actress -- but my god -- dynamite. Just blew us away. Yeah, her character will definitely return in the series. She's terrific.

Gina (Enid-Raye Adams)
IMDb Listing: Click Here -- Official Site: Click Here -- Fan Site: Click Here
Re-occurring Character (S2)
Click for larger image

CHARACTER DESCRIPTION:
She's a ballsy, little spitfire, tough and a fighter. She's probably had to do some things you wouldn't want to talk about to survive in the world after the big death. In The Question, Gina makes her first appearance as a new recruit to Thunder Mountain and is trained for battle by Kurdy. This woman can handle herself and can take the piss out of the best of them (especially guys much bigger than her!) In The Past is Prologue, she becomes Jeremiah's liason at Millhaven. one of her favorite things to do is to get up in his face, bugging the hell out of him, choosing the worst possible moments to do so. It'll be interesting to see where Gina's travels will take her.

She is from Omaha, Nebraska and she wasn't one of the volunteers for Thunder Mountain's army but was sent there as one of her town's quota for joining the Alliance.

ADDITIONAL INFO:
We chatted with Enid-Raye recently and she told us that it was a long and difficult road to get cast in Jeremiah. The right role kept elluding her since some of the characters she tried out for in season one were Claire in To Sail Beyond the Stars and Michelle in Mother of Invention. She also tried out in season two for Libby and Leader One in The Question. We were very glad she was persistent about getting on the show since she ended up being rewarded hansomely with a spunky character who appears in five episodes: The Question, The Past is Prologue, State of the Union, Interregnum (Part 1), and Interregnum (Part 2).

Also, it turns out that we have writer and Co-Producer, Samm Barnes, to thank for her finally landing a role in Jeremiah as she asked Enid-Raye to audition for Gina at the last minute. As Enie describes it, "I didn't know much about this character, but Mario Azzopardi was in the room, raking me over the coals! (Which is how I do my best work... hehehe) It just sort of went my way."

ACTOR INFORMATION:
Click for larger image Enid-Raye Adams was born in 1973 in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. It was Enid-Raye's beautiful Mom, Diane Law, who first opened the doors to the world of theatre. In 1998, Enid-Raye moved to Vancouver to pursue a career in film and television. It was during this time that Enid-Raye co-wrote and performed in the hilarious Would You Like Fries With That? - after work one-woman show "Would You Like Fries With That?" (a phrase she asked everyday from 9-5). The show sold out on tour at fringe festivals in Winnipeg, Edmonton and Victoria where she received the "Favourite Female Performer" award.

In October of 2000, "Da Vinci's Inquest" and its creator Chris Haddock were both responsible for giving the then-unhirable actor her first big break and essentially, a career. She was cast in the finale of the third season opposite the phenomenal Nicholas Campbell. Since then, Enid-Raye has appeared in over 20 film, television and theatre productions. Selected credits include "Final Destination 2", "The Twilight Zone", "Just Cause", "Stargate- SG1", "A Guy Thing", "Cold Squad", "The Dead Zone", "Babylon 5 Legend of the Rangers", "The Lonegunmen", and "Taken" for Steven Spielburg.

She is an active member of her community, volunteering as a meal server at the Union Gospel Mission. Enid-Raye makes her home in Vancouver where she does stand up on Wednesday mornings for her cactus plant, Eunice.
