Comic Con in San Diego is underway and the Banshee panel is happening right now! There will be a few updates to come, but lets have a look at the first video from Comic Con that Cinemax has released. This shows Lucas Hood’s greatest “hits” from the first 2 seasons of Banshee. While it’s footage we’ve already seen, it does remind us that our Lucas has been through a lot!!
If you’re lucky enough to be going to Comic Con next week, here are the details that you need to know in order to see all things Banshee!
FRIDAY, JULY 25TH
The panel for BANSHEE in Room 6A at 7:15 p.m. will be moderated by Grantland staff writer Andy Greenwald. Panelists include: creator and executive producer Jonathan Tropper and cast members Antony Starr (Lucas Hood), Ivana Milicevic (Carrie Hopewell), Ulrich Thomsen (Kai Proctor) and Geno Segers (Chayton Littlestone).

While the trailer does focus on Cinemax’s upcoming summer schedule, they do include a little sneak peak of Banshee’s third season at the very end (which will be back in 2015).
Banshee will again be at this year’s San Diego Comic Con! Antony, along with Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Geno Segers, and Jonathan Tropper will be in attendance, as tweeted by Cinemax earlier today:

You lucky folks who get to go to Comic Con and the Banshee panel! You’ll be in for a mega treat!!
ScreenSlam have recently posted an exclusive video interview on their youtube channel that they did with Antony. The interview is mainly about season 1 of Banshee, which means it’s a little old, but still good to watch!
It’s been a bit of a wait to see Wish You Were Here if you live in the UK, but the wait is now nearly over! You will soon be able to own Wish You Were Here on DVD from 12th May (Region 2 DVD release date).
Mark the date in your calendars and then look for the movie at all good DVD retailers. Alternatively, Wish You Were Here is now available for pre-orders at Amazon UK.
I’ve added stills and screencaps to the gallery of Antony from the Banshee season 2 finale, “Bullets and Tears”.
The screencaps from the Banshee finale will be added shortly, but in the meantime here is a Maxim article from last week where Antony answers a few questions!
“Banshee” Actor Antony Starr Talks Epic Fist Fights & Nude Scenes
By: Nick Leftley, Maxim, 12th March 2014
With Season 2 ending tomorrow night on Cinemax, the New Zealand actor answers the same 10 questions we always ask everyone!
For people who haven’t got around to seeing it yet, how would you describe the show Banshee?
Banshee is the story of a man who gets out of prison, tracks down his long-lost love, and tries to reclaim what was stolen from him years earlier by assuming the identity of a sheriff. I guess you could say it’s an explosive action drama – sit down, strap in, and enjoy the ride!
The show has some pretty epic fight scenes. How much of the stunt work do you do yourself?
We do a lot of the stunt work ourselves, because with the nature of the show, we try and make it as gritty as possible and give the directors as many options as they can in the cutting room. So we do a lot of it ourselves, which means that we get beaten up quite a lot and get extremely well used by the end of the season… It’s really quite an enjoyable process, ironically, because it’s really something I’ve never done before. I’ve never done any stunts. It was great to join a team that’s really focused on trying to bring some fresh and interesting action sequences to the small screen.
Have any of your stunts ever gone wrong?
You always get little bumps and nicks and bruises, and they’re not massively fun. I think the only thing that has really gone wrong is on day one of the entire shoot – day one, season one – one of the other actors threw his head up mid-fight scene, which sort of screwed the choreography up. My lip exploded and I had to get six stitches, but I had to keep filming for six hours before we could get me to the hospital!
