Last night (June 14), Rose attended the 2016 Women In Film Max Mara Face Of The Future. She traveled back to the US earlier this week, after the OZ Comic Con in Melbourne this weekend finished, after a week and a half back in OZ. The event was held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California, and was a celebration of the Max Mara face of the year – Natalie Dormer. Natalie received it ‘in recognition of her acting achievements and embodiment of timeless style and grace,’ according to the organization’s website.

Thanks to our kind friend Mouza, you can find +26 HQ photos in our gallery. More will be added later today, along with some other updates, so stay tuned and make sure you check back later.

Source | Over the weekend, Oz Comic-Con was hosted in Melbourne, Australia. Among the many guests from TV shows was Rose McIver from CW Network’s iZombie. During her panel, she brought up some of the things she would like to see in upcoming episodes of iZombie — including an episode she dubbed “iceZombie.”

After it was confirmed iZombie would be renewed for a third season, it seems Rose McIver, who plays the lead role of Liv Moore, a mortician’s technician who also happens to be a zombie, has been on a hunt for new episode ideas. Considering every time Liv eats a brain she takes on the mannerisms of the deceased, each episode is like playing a new character. Some of Liv’s various brains have included that of a bigoted old man, a frat boy, a country singer and a stripper. It certainly must be a hard task coming up with new occupations and character types for Liv to take over in each episode. So Rose McIver has a plan for some upcoming brains Liv could eat in Season 3 of iZombie.

First up, Rose has a plan for an episode she likes to call “iceZombie.” Rose told fans as they attentively listened to her panel, that the iZombie version of Disney on Ice would include her character, Liv Moore, eating the brain of a hockey player and Major (played by Robert Buckley in the TV series) eating the brain of a figure skater. Could you imagine that? Major as an figure skater? Liv as a buff hockey player? It would be fabulous indeed. But, as yet, this episode is entirely Rose’s creation and not something the iZombie writers have considered.

So how can fans help Rose McIver get her iceZombie episode up and running? During her panel at Oz Comic Con, Rose McIver implored fans to get behind her cause and asked them to reach out to the iZombie writers on Twitter. So, if you want to help Rose get her “iceZombie” episode of iZombie up and running, now is the time to let the writers know this is something you would like to see.

Other suggestions from Rose McIver for future iZombie episodes included wanting an episode that involved the circus. The reason behind this request is not because Rose McIver wants to run away and join the circus, but because she once got circus training in a previous TV show role in her native homeland of New Zealand. The program, Maddigan’s Quest, and was a fantasy-based TV series based in a post-apocalyptic world. McIver played the lead role of Garland, a character who was a member of the circus troupe ‘Maddigan’s Fantasia.’ This circus troupe traveled around in search of new Solar Converters to help fix the only power source in the city of Solis. During her time on this show Rose learned, among other circus tricks, how to walk the trapeze. It is a skill Rose McIver is yet to use again, so thinks it would be an interesting brain choice in iZombie.

Since there is not much news to update with until this weekend, Sara and I have been working on the pages here at Rose McIver Online. We have finally completed the Music Videos pages, with information on the Wild Wild Horses videos Rose did last year, as well as put up a Writing page, where you can read about Rose’s screenplays and more. We have also began a Public Events page, which will eventually contain information on all the press tours, conventions and award shows Rose has attended through her career.

Tomorrow we will start the modeling page, where we will write about the magazine spreads Rose have had, the Theatre pages, and complete the Short film ones. Stay tuned!

Interviews, iZombie  •  By  •  0 Comments

Source | Spending recent years toying with morbid humour, New Zealand iZombie lead and Oz Comic-Con guest Rose McIver tells Daniel Cribb why it’s important to laugh when bad things happen.

“I’m currently lying on my parents’ sofa in Auckland,” McIver begins from her hometown. “I’m home visiting for a week and have regressed to behaving like a difficult teenager and demanding coffee from dad and lounging around,” she laughs.

It’s the first time she’s been home for a full week in several years, with an increasingly busy schedule that’s seen stints on show like Once Upon A Time and Masters Of Sex, as well as playing Liv Moore on The CW hit iZombie, so some down time is well earned, especially considering McIver put the final touches on a screenplay a week earlier. “I’m very excited — it’s with a director who actually lives in Australia now, Peter Salmon so it’s sitting in his inbox, waiting to be read,” she reveals.

“Some of the funniest things are borne out of situations that could be quite traumatic or quite morbid and being able to see the light and the dark in those situations is a skill set.”

“It’s a fairly different tone to iZombie; it’s very dark, gritty — there’s definitely some comedic elements, but I wouldn’t call it a comedy. It’s something that I’ve written as a writer, it’s not something for me to act in. It’s been a really good exercise, I hope it gets to come to life soon.”

It could have been quite easy for iZombie to take a similar dark path, with the inevitable element of death a prerequisite for the undead supernatural creature the show utilises, but McIver doesn’t see it as a zombie show, and after only a few episodes it’s easy to see why; you can almost forget that the lead is a zombie with everything else that’s going on. “It’s about a girl who went through an identity crisis and is trying to make sense of the way her life is unfolding and the way her relationships are changing,” McIver explains. “So it’s very relationship and character driven; I think that’s what keep it somewhat grounded and allows us to have some humour, and also high stakes, but also make it accessible and personable.”

It’s a style she attributes to showrunners Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero, who have given a completely original spin to the comic book-based series. “It’s almost like [Thomas] in his own life is quite comfortable with the darker side of things, and that can be a lovely balance. Some of the funniest things are borne out of situations that could be quite traumatic or quite morbid and being able to see the light and the dark in those situations is a skill set, and it’s really accessible for an audience.

“We’re working with a morgue consultant, who we put past every single question about how we would deal with a body in certain situations and she has such a dark sense of humour herself; she’s so, so funny and I find that very appealing that, you wouldn’t want it to be borne out of disrespect or anything, but bad stuff happens — that’s life and how things go and if you can’t find a way to laugh about it, then what a miserable way to exist.”
