Seventh Star Studios is proud to announce Scott Nova as Alaric in the TV Pilot Rayden Valkyrie: Saga of a Lionheart!
Scott will portray Alaric, a tough warrior of the north who found a mentor in the legendary Ragnar Stormbringer. When both of them become part of a mercenary group that includes the heroine Rayden Valkyrie, Alaric begins a dangerous journey that will challenge him to become more than he ever thought he would be .
The world Alaric 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.
“Scott has tremendous potential,” Director/Screenwriter Stephen Zimmer said. “He has a complete range of strengths, a great look, powerful physical presence, a desire to grow in his craft, and acting talent. I’m stoked that Scott is in this fantastic ensemble.”
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.
