Seventh Star Studios is proud to announce Silvio Wolf Busch as Sagaras in the TV Pilot Rayden Valkyrie: Saga of a Lionheart!
Silvio will portray Sagaras, a warrior from the same tribal lands where the iconic heroine Rayden Valkyrie was raised. An adventurer, Sagaras’ quest to fight alongside the famed warrior lands him in her mercenary band, which embarks on a quest to hunt down a group of brigands who have taken a number of captives. His great fighting skills will be put to the test by far more than brigands on this journey.
The world Sagaras 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.
“Silvio is everything you would want for a project in our genre,” Director/Screenwriter Stephen Zimmer said. “He is a student of history with a deep passion for the fantasy genre. Combined with his extensive combat training and other skills well-suited to fight sequences and stunts, he is a perfect fit for a warrior band. I’m extremely excited to have Silvo in our wonderful ensemble 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.
