You’ve seen him play a sexy, sultry love interest many a time, but for the upcoming fantasy adventure film, “Of Light And Darkness”, Alexis Georgoulis prepares himself for a new type of role. This time around Georgoulis trades in his washboard abs for a long beard and cloak, as wise wizard Danek who aims to guide his son(played by the Twilight Saga’s Michel Welch) through his struggle between the decision to remain human or utilize his strong powers to help defeat an army of evil vampires.
His reason for questioning to gain such power? His love for a mortal girl, Charlotte, who is bound between the lines of light and darkness and must fight for life and love in a mystical realm of vampires, elves, and creatures of myth and fantasy, in a town just beyond the boundaries of the modern world, Prague.
“I think my role is a very interesting from the actors perspective because the wizard is a powerful man who starts his story with no family,” said Georgoulis. “Because, although wizards are humans, they don’t have that human vulnerability, so once you see that they can be vulnerable and that they have feelings they fit the human mortal profile, it’s interesting.”
In the film, due to his character’s lineage, Georgoulis is challenged to trade in his naturally Greek accent for an Irish one. The film is expected to release in 2013 as it is still in pre-production., until then we can only anticipate for the release of this genocide between wizards and vampires as well as a struggle for love.
