Treva Etienne

Stepping into a brand new role on Falling Skies, Treva Etienne spoke to FemaleFirst about filming the fourth season of the hit series, being welcomed onto the set by the actors who have made it their home already and more in an exclusive interview.

What drew you to the role of Dingaan Botha?

I liked the mystery of him.

Can you tell us a little bit about the character and what's in store for him in Falling Skies?

Dingaan will be very involved with the 2nd Mass group of resistance fighters as they battle for a better world.

You're joining the cast of the show in its fourth season, how was integrating yourself with the regulars who've been there the whole time?

I found it really easy as I was warmly welcomed into the 2nd Mass Family by the very talented cast and crew.

How was the experience of filming and chemistry on-set?

I found the experience of filming exhilarating, and working with the chemistry of the amazing actors and the wonderful crew were inspiring.

You've got vast credits in both TV and film, how do the two worlds of acting compare?

The TV world is so close now to the Movie world, in terms of the ambition of what is possible with the technology of storytelling, that I think now it's just the type of project that creates comparison.
