Actress Julie Benz has a very impressive resume, with shows such as Dexter, Desperate Housewives and Defiance under her belt. With Defiance season two set to premiere in the New Year, Julie has spoken about what fans can expect from the new season, as well as playing her character Amanda.
Benz told 411 Mania, "It's so much fun. Talk about dark; this season the gloves are off and they are going into territories that are so dark. I filmed all day yesterday and Amanda's emotional drama is so exciting, the scripts are so good. Last year we had to spend so much time developing the audience's relationship with the town and the characters and now that they have that, this year the gloves are off and there's so much more raw emotion and craziness."
Speaking of her character Amanda, she added, "I really love her because she's a strong, powerful woman, she's a survivor, she's scrappy. Emotionally she's so deeply flawed that she has trouble making real connections. She's very emotionally cut off in some ways and scare of connection."
Defiance season two will premiere in 2014, although an official date has yet to be confirmed. Meanwhile, Julie Benz can be seen in the television movie Taken: The Search for Sophie Parker, which airs on Lifetime.
