Tamsen McDonough plays a sassy spaceship named Lucy on SyFy’s Killjoys and the actress joins the Lady Geeks for a great discussion on female characters in today’s media.
Tamsen McDonough currently plays Lucy, the most cheeky AI spaceship in the galaxy, in SyFy’s KILLJOYS. She brings in a lot of fun to the show, keeping things spicy for the main characters (and maybe a little weird sometimes, check out the episode ‘I Love Lucy’…). Get to know her in our interview below! She is hilarious, dorable and apparently, has a thing for egging things.
Tell us about your current show, KILLJOYS and your character, Lucy.
The Killjoys is a comedic and dramatic action TV series set in space. It follows a trio of bounty hunters, known as Killjoys, who chase deadly warrants through the Quad, a distant area that is near the start of a violent class war among multiple planets. And their mode of transportation is the sleek and sassy AI spaceship, Lucy. She’s been called the fouth Killjoy and loves her humans… no bias but I think she’s amazing!
The cast of Hollow Ship returns on the Defective Geeks podcast, this time with creators and actors, Curtis Fortier, Helen McElwain and Steve Shaw. We delve into finalizing episode 00 and what it’s like to wrap up a Kickstarter project… all while we took over The Comic Bug in Culver City and drank wine!
You know, it’s true — Canada gets a lot of cool shows, and one of those include Space and SyFy’s original series, BITTEN. Enough with the male driven cast of werewolves show! Bitten is about a female werewolf and her struggle between her supernatural world while trying to live a normal life. Tommie-Amber Pirie joins the cast of BITTEN and was kind enough to answer a few questions about her upcoming role as a witch on the show. Werewolves and witches, need I say more? Read on and get to know Tommie-Amber with us. Did we mention she had worked with Daniel Radcliffe before as well?
Tell us about joining the cast of BITTEN and your role as a witch? What can you tell us about your character?
Yes! I have had the pleasure of joining the amazing team of the BITTEN cast and crew for season two as a witch named Paige Winterbourne. Her and her coven join the pack in this up and coming season and many exciting things ensue! I can’t say too much about her role in the season but know that she is a great addition to the series. Not only because I have a job! Ha! But because more female power on this show rocks! Everything thus far had been utterly enjoyable. I am thrilled to go to work every day.
Our own planet, Earth, and the universe that surrounds it remains a mystery to all of us. Neil deGrasse Tyson hosted this 13-part adventure across space and time in Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.

Jenny’s birthday celebration was so awesome that it had four different themes that were melded together into one explosive party: space, time travel, robots and dinosaurs! I love that there is always a themed party guarantee when it comes to the people I know in Los Angeles. We all want an excuse to get dressed up as robots or dinosaurs or as robot-dinosaurs.
Wall-E was also at the party and he was dancing on the dance floor for a little bit. I almost cried from pure joy… who would have thought I would be at a party with Wall-E?!
