Emilie Ullerup has been the focus of many distraught fans of Sanctuary and the actress herself. Cinema Static asked if Ullerup was leaving Sanctuary, and later found out that Ullerup was let go from Sanctuary. She was written off of Sanctuary rather abruptly, at least from the fans point of view.
The latest news is that Emilie has landed a new role in the medium that got her on Sanctuaryt, the web.
Emilie Ullerup landed a role on the web series Riese the Series and will be playing Aliza, a revolutionary, in what they refer to as Chapter 2.
Riese is a sci-fi / fantasy series that takes is source material from history, mythology, folklore and steampunk.
It’s about a young woman and a companion wolf named Fenrir and they travel through a collapsing world as she tries to recall what the fragmented memories are while trying to avoid capture by a dangerous religious cult that hunts her.
It’s filmed with a worthy budget and on the RED camera in high definition.
Riese also stars Christine Chatelain (Sanctuary, Supernatural), Sharon Taylor (Smallville, Stargate Atlantis, Eureka), Patrick Gilmore (Stargate Universe, Battlestar Galactica), Ben Cotton (Harper’s Island, Stargate Atlantis, Taken) and Ryan Robbins (Sanctuary, Caprica, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis).
Sounds like Emilie Ullerup is joining the ranks of a great cast on a great show.
I’ve always said that things happen for a reason, even if they don’t make sense up front. Now we all need to hop on all over and check out this web series, Riese the Series. Let’s support them and add to their fan base and let them know we approve of their hiring choices! See my source and reference links at the end of this article… a whole 3 lines down!
This would apparently be Syfy’s loss as from what I can tell, many are done with Sanctuary with the demise of Ashley. Bad move gang!
Congratulations to Emilie for landing on her feet with this new role!
