TRUE BLOOD Star Todd Lowe Reveals Details Of His Role In Shyamalan's AFTER EARTH
Actor Todd Lowe is best known for his role as Iraq War veteran Terry Bellefleur in HBO's popular vampire television series, True Blood. He will soon be seen in M. Night Shyamalan's next feature film, After Earth, alongside Will Smith and his son Jaden.
Todd Lowe's Terry Bellefleur is one of the few human voices in HBO's True Blood. Not that means he doesn't suffer from his fair share of issues, but in a show full of monsters his great one-liners help ground the show in some sort of reality. But for his next role he'll have a bit of a hard time finding the ground, here's why:
I worked a week on the M. Night Shyamalan movie After Earth. It's coming out next year – I guess it's gonna be a big Will Smith summer blockbuster. I had a scene with Will and his son Jaden, and we shot it in Philadelphia. It was the first time I've ever worked on a green screen, and I had a fantastic time. Will Smith is the biggest movie star I've ever met, and he couldn't be more gracious. I play a wounded veteran – but it's set years in the future, in space, and I'm in a levitating wheelchair.
In "After Earth," one thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity's escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind's new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige (played by Will Smith) returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai (played by Jaden Smith). When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai's craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.
