BILLY MacLELLAN The Expanse, Maudie & More

Posted: January 3, 2016

We weren't foolin' around when we put Cape Breton born actor Billy MacLellan on our list of ONES TO WATCH last year - from guest starring roles on CBC's fan favourite MURDOCH MYSTERIES to his regular stint as Lt.Bebe/Beckman on the Syfy/Showcase hit DEFIANCE... the man was busy.

The-Expanse-1Well, another gig which got him our 2015 list was his guest spot on THE EXPANSE.

The hugely anticipated Syfy original has delivered in spades with fans and has already been renewed for a second season.  You can catch Billy this coming Tuesday, January 5th on Ep.105 "Back To The Butcher".

He'll play father to Raven Stewart (FARGO/CRACKED) in the episode and had this to share with SABS about his experience on THE EXPANSE...

"It was a bit intimidating walking onto this show.  It’s a big one.  You could tell right away that everyone was swinging for the fences - that it was going to be like jumping on a moving treadmill, but meeting and working with producer Mark Fergus and the director Rob Lieberman, I knew that I was in good hands. They were really clear in what story they want to tell and they each had a lovely way of communicating that story.

And then, I show up on set and meet Raven (Stewart), who was playing my six year old daughter. We just had a ball.  It was a healthy reminder that as working actors, each working day we are given a gift, we get to play and make a living at the same time. I’ve done a few shows now with Syfy (Defiance, 12 Monkeys). The fan base is really extraordinary. They are probably the most supportive, loyal and passionate fans that I seen yet."

Be sure to tune in and catch Billy in action this Tuesday and if you've been missing out on all THE EXPANSE excitement... get caught up now!  Watch the first 4 episodes on line here in Canada and here south of the border.
