Star Force 3 part 2 is now available!
Worth it for the Kit Harrington Crotch Shot alone.
We all know this Friday’s Star Force 3 Instagram film trailer has you hooting it up, that’s Hootenanny affirmative. It’s the best in socially distanced filming fun, and it’s in space! Starring Cree, Caitriona Balfe, James McAvoy, ADOW star Teresa Palmer, James Kirk, Chris Forbes and a few special guests.
So, what has Steven been up to? He did not make an appearance in Season 5 of Outlander, and may not make an appearance again until Season 7, if they are following the books, which as we know the writers are swapping about scenes between books. We miss Ian Murray! But never fear, along with his spaced out larks, Steven’s got some new characters coming your way.
Steven showed up stateside on Amazon Prime/PBS App this week in COBRA, a rather chilling and close to the bone tale of the disaster and secret ops UK division that the Prime Minister, played here rather well by Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, Once Upon A Time) calls into session over a disaster. The sun erupts with a solar flare that wipes out communications and power all over Europe. It’s not far off from what could really happen, science wise, and shows how governments are ill prepared for such disasters. Oh, the drama!
Steven Cree stars as the very harried Chief Constable of Tyneside Police, Steven Collier. When a decision is made by the Prime Minister that jeopardizes the whole of the north of the country, Cree has to contend with vigilantes and hoards of people who have no power or communications. Just think COVID isolation on steroids. Watch now on PBS App on Amazon.
But what Steven has really been having fun on, is working on A Discovery of Witches, based on the All Souls Trilogy books by Deborah Harkness. Season 3 production just started rolling back in due to COVID shut downs. While we have yet to see season 2 stateside, January 8th it is available in the in the UK.
Yes, Steve is in another time traveling show! Steven Cree plays Gallowglass de Claremont, a Scottish vampire and Mathew’s nephew in the vampire family way, in 1590. For some back story on Gallowglass, go here but beware of spoilers. Watch the series or read the books first. If you haven’t watched the series, do. If you haven’t read the books yet, do, preferably first. Anything to get your mind off world affairs for the next few weeks. I mean, you get to see men in leather jerkins, can’t get better than that. You can watch Season 2 in the UK on Sky One TV and NOW TV on January 8, 2021. The series will show on Sundance Now and Shudder TV in the US shortly after.
So, to keep you a little entertained until then, here’s some behind the scenes fun, some Steven Cree madness, and more.
Here’s the Season 2 Behind the Scenes for A Discovery of Witches, premiering in the UK on Sky Arts in January 2021. Filming for season 3 has just started up again. Great insight to props, set details, favorite and worst costume memories, and a few teasers.
Here’s some catch up on episodes 1 and 2 on Star Force. Enjoy. Watch Cait rock that Russian 1980s look.

Check back on this link as updates are announced:
If you are a cross genre fan and filling up time in Droughtlander with other fun historical time travel series, look no further than A Discovery of Witches, a Sky TV production that is based on the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. I’m finally getting to finish this series of books up, and having fun imagining what a more colorful world it would be if I had daemon and vampire friends. Like mystery involving daemons, vampire clans, and witches, oh and time travel? Then you’ve found the right series to help tide you over. And you get to see a very bearded Steven Cree. Maybe he could take some lessons from Duncan Lacroix, as his advice seeking from Sam Heughan is going no where.
It was announced this past week by Steven Cree’s (Ian Murray) Agency Troika, that Steven would be filling the very big shoes of Gallowglass, a Scottish vampire in the series. It is also why some filming had to be moved around that involved the beloved Lallybroch location earlier this month.
Now, if you have read the books, Gallowglass is definitely some serious shoon to fill. Cree is often seen in roles where he has an aloof brooding, not saying much, but when he does it is filled with depth and understanding. Oh, wait, that would be perfect for his new role.
While many of the All Souls Trilogy fans have also entered debate into familiar book v. series conversations on social media, this production is fairly faithful to the books. That said, the coming season will be a treat as Stephen will be in the 16th century in Elizabethan London on this time excursion. And he has already lived quite a long life.
Sadly season 2 of A Discovery of Witches is still in production and will show on Sky Network later in 2020. It takes at least a month or more before it shows on networks AMC owns in the States. You are looking at at least summer of 2020 before you can catch the show if you are in North America.
Also joining the cast as Philippe De Clermont, Mathews Vampire Father and head of the De Clermont family is James Purefoy.
The story follows the witch Diana, played by Teresa Palmer, who discovered the Book of Life when doing research. The vampire Matthew De Clermont (Matthew Goode, Downton Abbey) tracks her down as they are both drawn to the mysterious book, the fact that many deamons and witches are searching for it, and only Diana can seem to call it up from the mysterious Bodleian library at Oxford University. Series two encompasses the second book in the series, Shadow of Night.
Check out Steven’s Twitter account, as he is already having some fun pokes at the massive beard he must grow and how the beard is overshadowing his life on the new set.
