INTERVIEW: Sydney Meyer Stars In New Conspiracy-Mystery Series, Departure

Actor, Sydney Meyer, is known for playing Helena Blackthorn in Shadowhunters, a show beloved by fandom. Soon, you will see her in a new series called Departure as well as Netflix’s V-WARS alongside Ian Somherhalder.

Tell us about your new upcoming television show, Departure, and what was it like working with a cast that includes Archie Panjabi and Christopher Plummer? Who is your character, Sophie? 

Departure is an exciting mystery mini-series centered around a flight disappearance. It’s absolutely beautifully shot, so cinematic, and it has all these rich entwining storylines that keep you guessing until the last episode. It’s a beautiful, exciting, emotional series. The cast was incredible. It’s funny, when I was maybe 14 I went to Shakespeare school at Stratford and I remember seeing Christopher Plummer in The Tempest and being absolutely blown away by him. He was an actor I so looked up to and respected. So being on a show with him was just an absolute dream come true for me. Archie is so fabulous and such an amazing woman to be around as a young female artist. She is so incredibly skilled and intelligent and kind. She’s just remarkable to work with, and to be able to do scene work with her and learn from her was such a gift. She’s truly an inspiration to me.

Hi Sarah! Thank you for doing this interview with us. You’ve had such a very full career at such a young age already! Tell us how you got into acting and who or what inspired you to pursue this creative journey?

When I was younger, I loved Disney channel and it sparked my interest in acting. My mom then spotted an ad in our local newspaper saying an agency was holding open call auditions. My parents and I discussed it and we decided it was worth a try. A short amount time later, I was signed with the agency! My first jobs were commercials, but I built my way up to bigger roles from there.

‘The Dead Files’ premiers on the Travel Channel this Fall Season

My childhood experience while growing up in the Philippines has cemented my belief on the paranormal and the “other world”– just call me, Spooky Pirate Queen! That’s an X-Files joke, by the way and you’re way super cool if you got it.

Ghost Adventures, Travel Channel

The Travel Channel is my go-to channel whenever I turn on the television and yes, I admit it: I enjoy the occasional Ghost Adventures episode here and then. For those who does not know, these guys: Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin travel all over the United States at haunted destinations. What do they do? Well, the one thing that only three dudes would do together… they lock themselves over night in these supposedly haunted houses and buildings. It’s like watching a long drawn-out dare each time as the guys run about with night vision cameras while Zak taunts the ghosts to either touch him or speak to them. It’s often hilarious and often you do get a glimpse of what may be on the other side of death. But often time, these ghosts are from a far away past and history.

What happens when they send people to investigate the more recent dead?
