Seventh Star Studios is proud to announce Erik Kyr as Ingvar in the TV Pilot Rayden Valkyrie: Saga of a Lionheart!
Erik will portray Ingvar, a warrior out of the far north, who has taken a mercenary path that eventually leads to him joining a war band led by the heroine Rayden Valkyrie. A tough warrior who has survived many lethal threats, Ingvar will face his deadliest foes yet when Rayden’s group pursues a number of brigands into an ancient forest.
The world Ingvar 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.
“Erik is a great talent,” Director/Screenwriter Stephen Zimmer said. “With good physicality and a strong grasp of character, Erik can fit any number of roles very well, and he is perfectly suited for the character Ingvar. He is also very understanding of the production process and supportive of others, which is exactly the kind of person you want on a set. I am really looking forward to working with Erik!”
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.
