Seventh Star Studios is proud to announce Megan O’Mooney as Astrid in the TV Pilot Rayden Valkyrie: Saga of a Lionheart!
Megan will portray Astrid, a village woman with a young daughter who are both swept up in a raid by brigands who intend to sell their captives into slave markets. When a mercenary group led by the heroine Rayden Valkyrie hunts down the brigands, Astrid finds herself on a journey she never imagined; one that will challenge her to discover the strength and courage inside her.
The world Astrid inhabits is featured in Stephen Zimmer’s sword and sorcery novel Heart of a Lion. The story in the TV pilot is not an adaptation of the novel, but rather an original storyline envisioned to be the foundation for a series of episodes filled with the adventures of Rayden’s war band.
“Megan is an actress to keep an eye on,” Director/Screenwriter Stephen Zimmer said. “She is very talented, and is driven to hone her craft at every turn. She has a tremendous work ethic and responds wonderfully to direction. I am really looking forward to working with her on this project, and am so glad she is a member of this wonderful primary cast.”
Rayden Valkyrie: Saga of a Lionheart is scheduled for production late spring on locations in Kentucky and represents the first visual media project for Seventh Star Studios, a division of Seventh Star Press, a publisher of speculative fiction based out of Lexington, Kentucky.
