INTERVIEW: Sydney Meyer Stars in Netflix’s New Teen Drama, GRAND ARMY

Actor, Sydney Meyers, is known for her roles in shows such as Shadowhunters and The Expanse. Now, she stars in Netflix’s Grand Army, a show that represents and explores many social issues that teenagers are facing today. Season one of the show is now available on Netflix.

Tell us more about your new show on Netflix, Grand Army. What is the series about and what drew you to the project? Who is your character, Anna Delaney, and what role does she play in the story?

The series is a true to life look at five teens in Brooklyn and their lives in school and online as they struggle to find themselves and their voices in their community. I was working the casting sessions in Toronto as a reader and I was immediately drawn to the rawness and authenticity of the scripts. I was invested right away and knew that I wanted to be a part of the project. Anna is Joey’s best friend since childhood and Tim’s twin sister, she’s also the motherly figure of her group. She is put in the middle of a conflict that arises between Joey and the rest of her friend group and Anna is forced to pick a side and ultimately to deal with the consequences of having to do that.

Hi Tristan, congratulations on the premiere of your new show! Can you tell us about NURSES, and the character you play, Damien Sanders? What role does he play in the series?

Nurses takes us into the hectic life at St. Mary’s Hospital. It follows five rookie nurses who are thrown into the realities of what it takes to be an effective team player under high stakes situations. It’s an ensemble piece, put together by a highly acclaimed team of writers, directors, producers, and editors. I’m really proud to be a part of this one. I play Damien Sanders, head charge nurse at St. Mary’s. He’s a bit of a hard ass (having been a Master Corporal and chief field medic in the military) but he definitely has a soft side. Maybe two soft sides.

Throwback Thors-day: Our First Video!

The first video we posted on our YouTube channel is ‘Defective Geeks Goes to Star Tours’ in 2011. Whilst bored and waiting in line  for the Star Tours ride in Disneyland after it had been revamped to what it is known as today! The wait time was so long that we somehow thought we should attempt to be brilliant, show our audience what it was like to wait in line AND created a story line all at the same time. A cat and mouse chase story, with mystery, drama and possibilities of forever friendships.

In my opinion, this video is still one of our best ones.

“Alien juice.”

Enjoy! ;)
