NEWS: Second ‘Caprica’ Star Joins ‘Judas Kiss’ Cast

The time-bending drama is set to shoot in Seattle this month with Genevieve Buechner

Genevieve Buechner stars as Tamara Adama in the hit Syfy series, "Caprica."

SEATTLE — Genevieve Buechner, who plays Tamara Adama on the Syfy hit series, "Caprica," leads the list of actors filling out the cast of the campus time-travel drama, "Judas Kiss," set to shoot here this month.

 

Buechner, a Canadian actress, is also a veteran of various network TV dramas, such as "Supernatural" and "The 4400," and has also appeared in the features "Elopement" and "Jennifer’s Body."

 

She appears in "Judas Kiss" as a student at Keystone Summit University, a school that lies at the crossroads of parallel timelines, the film’s producers announced today.

 

"We’re thrilled our little independent feature caught Genevieve’s notice, and that she wants to be a part of it," said director J.T. Tepnapa. "Judas Kiss" is the first feature from the award-winning director of several short films.

 

The film tells the story of a failed Hollywood filmmaker who gets the chance to return to his film school to confront his tortured past and avoid a troubling future.

 

The production stars Buechner’s "Caprica" co-star, Richard Harmon ("Percy Jackson & the Olympians," "Fringe"), in the lead role of Danny Reyes, as well as fellow Canadian Charlie David ("Dante’s Cove," "Mulligans") as the lead, Zachary Wells.

 

Producers also announced casting several prominent Seattle-area actors in other major roles in the film, including:

 

First row, left to right:

  • Laura Kenny as Mrs. Blossom, dean of the Keystone Summit Film School.
  • Vince Valenzuela as Daniel Reyes, Sr., Danny’s father.
  • Samantha Rund as Rebecca Lynn, judge at the Keystone Film Festival.
  • Troy Fischnaller as Zachary’s best friend, Hollywood director Topher Shadoe.
  • Dale Bowers as Old Man Welds, a mysterious campus tour guide.
  • Paul Stetler as "the Father," a role in a film within the film.
  • 10-year-old Matt Smith as "Jude," a role in a film within the film.

Second row, left to right:

  • Ronee Collins as Danny’s mother, Kimberly Reyes.
  • 12-year-old Iain Dunn as Young Danny Reyes.
  • Eric Helland as Mr. Lyons, a prominent Keystone donor.
  • Stephanie Hillbert as Mrs. Lyons, a prominent Keystone donor.
  • Tessa Archer as an assistant director in a film within the film.
  • Demetrius Sager and Joe Royal as Keystone students.

"Judas Kiss" is produced by Blue Seraph Productions, a Los Angeles company headed by Tepnapa and Seattle-based writer-producer Carlos Pedraza. Their previous work has been featured in the New York Times, BBC, Variety, Frontiers, Fab magazine, the Today Show, MSNBC, and other international news outlets.

 

Tepnapa’s short films include the multiple award-winning parody of 1950s teen health films, "Masturbation: Putting the Fun Into Self-Loving," the comedy "Drag Queen Heist" and the homeless youth drama, "Begging for Change."

 

"Judas Kiss’ is scheduled to shoot this month in Seattle.
