gbreviews.com attended Oded Fehr’s panel at the 2016 Phoenix Comicon:
Following Billie Piper’s panel at Phoenix Comicon 2016 on Saturday, June 4 was Oded Fehr, probably best known for his roles as Ardeth Bay in The Mummy movies and Carlos Olivera in the Resident Evil movies. His panel, scheduled for 1:30pm-2:30pm, also took place in West 301BCD, the same room as Billie Piper’s panel.
Eve Myles, who played Gwen Cooper in Torchwood, the Doctor Who spinoff series, had a panel in the smaller room next door that took place at the same time, so we had to make a choice between her panel and Oded Fehr’s panel. In the end, we decided to attend Oded Fehr’s panel since we had never seen him before, while we had seen Eve Myles on a couple of panels at Gallifrey One (the annual Doctor Who convention) last year. Plus, it was more convenient to stay in the same room, especially considering that Caity Lotz’s panel would be taking place in the same room after Oded Fehr’s panel, and we weren’t sure how full the room would get.
If you take a look at Oded Fehr’s IMDb page, you’ll see that he has been in a great number of movies and TV shows. Other than The Mummy and Resident Evil, he was asked the most about his role as Mossad agent Eyal Lavine on the TV series Covert Affairs. He commented that after appearing on Covert Affairs, he was all of a sudden playing Mossad characters everywhere. When asked if he was afraid of being typecast, Fehr said that it wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, and that if he gets to play more characters like on Covert Affairs, “all the better.” Another audience member later asked if he thought Fehr’s character would have gotten together with Piper Perabo’s character. Fehr recalled commenting to Piper one time something along the lines of, “Thank God they never got together, then I’d be dead by now.” She wasn’t sure what he meant by that, so he explained to her that her that the love interest doesn’t last, and they’d have to kill him off somehow, to which she responded, “So I’m a Black Widow?” Fehr talked about his experience being a guest star on Covert Affairs, telling us that he was the first guest star coming in after the show got picked up, and celebrating with everyone about the show being picked up. He had to remind everyone that he was leaving in 8 days, and told them, “You are never going to have a better guest actor.” Later he got called back, and they all told him that he was right — he was the best guest star they’d ever had. However, that only lasted until Richard Coyle started working there. Later, after Coyle’s character was killed off, when bringing up the “best guest star” they tried to make him feel better by saying “Well, the other one’s dead.”
Thanks very much to Lina who capped this, we now have screencaps from Covert Affairs episode 3.05 This Is Not America and its deleted scenes in the gallery.
We won’t be seeing Oded Fehr in Marvel’s Most Wanted – ABC didn’t pick it up to series 🙁
With a new management having taken over earlier this year, they’re establishing what they’re going to do going forward with some projects from related company Marvel TV as they’ve given the axe to Agent Carter and passing on the pilot for Marvel’s Most Wanted. Agents of SHIELD previously got a renewal for the fourth season so that show is safe. Fans of Hayley Atwell won’t be too surprised this as she had a position in a new ABC drama series called Conviction which did get a pickup as the network wanted to treat her right since she’s been a great player for the Disney family for some time now.
With the pilot for Most Wanted, it got mixed reviews from those presiding over its fate and was passed over in favor of other more solidly choices in this view. Now we’ll wait and see if the two main actors are brought back into Agents of SHIELD after departing recently from there for the pilot.
Interestingly, this leaves no “bridge” show between Agents of SHIELD with its two halves, which means we could have quite the gap.
Agent Carter starred Hayley Atwell with recent confirms of James D’Arcy, Dominic Cooper and Enver Gjokaj as coming back and others being finalized.
Agent Carter Concept: Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.
Marvel’s Most Wanted starred announced Adrianne Palicki, Nick Blood, Oded Fehr and Delroy Lindo as the announced actors.
The show was created and written by S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Jeffrey Bell and Paul Zbyszewski who executive produce with Jeph Loeb for Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
Most Wanted Concept: Centers on Bobbi Morse (a.k.a. Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., two ex-spies and ex-spouses who are on the run with no friends, no S.H.I.E.L.D. and a long list of enemies looking to claim a bounty on their heads. Able to trust no one but each other, Bobbi and Hunter form an uneasy alliance with Dominic Fortune, a rogue adventurer with a wealth of resources and even more adversaries, who agrees to protect them so long as they help him with his own agenda. These two heroes will help anyone in need, all while trying to uncover the conspiracy that put their own lives in jeopardy.
