Ksenia Solo on the diversity of Lost Girl, the history of Turn: Washington’s Spies and playing complex female characters

Ksenia Solo is a young actress who has already made a name and mark for herself in a number of TV series. Best known for her role on supernatural sci-fi show Lost Girl, she has also starred in the perpetually fascinating series Orphan Black, and takes a leap back into American revolutionist history with Turn: Washington’s Spies. Prior to her appearance at Oz Comic Con Sydney we sit down with Ksenia to discuss her various and varied acting roles.

In Part 1 of our interview with Ksenia Solo she tells us what her most valuable lesson is that she learnt whilst working on Lost Girl. What it was like working on three different shows almost simultaneously. Getting into character on a period drama and whether she felt like she related to the character of Peggy Shippen. As well as researching into the American Revolution to learn more for her role.

In Part 2 of our interview with Ksenia she discusses her attraction to complex female characters, the normalisation of diversity on television; as well as an insight into a couple of her forthcoming projects one of which resulted in filming in Italy and now her desire to want to learn to speak more Italian.

Brisbane and Queensland fans have the opportunity to meet Ksenia Solo at Oz Comic Con Brisbane this weekend, Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September 2016 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. For more information or to purchase tickets go to the Oz Comic Con website.
