As promised, we have even more exclusive high quality photos for you today! Following our Johnny Kapahala update from Monday, we have now added some photos of Rose from her older projects “Power Rangers R.P.M” and “Eddie’s Million Dollar Cook-Off”. These are VERY rare, and most of them you won’t find anywhere else – so get browsing! We are so lucky to have these. We have also added some LQ/MQ stills from “Maddigan’s Quest”, and a stunning shot of Rose filming “Brightest Star”.
We’ll have more exclusives coming up soon, as well as many photos to warm up for the big iZombie season 3 premiere! Keep checking back, and please let us know in the comment section if there’s anything in particular you want us to add.
As you already know, Rose will be at the OZ Comic-Con in Melbourne this coming weekend. We already reported she will attend the event with her iZombie co-star David Anders, but we now have some exciting news for our fellow Power Rangers R.P.M fans – Dan Ewing (Dillon/Ranger Black) will be there as well, and he and Rose will do some Power Rangers photo sessions! We miss our Summer & Dillon, so we can’t wait to see the photos…
To view Rose’s full schedule, click the “Continue Reading” button below. Full coverage will as always be up on the site this weekend, so stay tuned for photos, videos, news and more!
This is actually old news, almost a year old now. But somehow we missed it! Back in 2014, Rose did a photoshoot for the NO H8 Campaign, which we have a headshot from. Last year the campaign did their own “Power Rangers” one, collecting together the photoshoots of more than 50 previous Rangers! How cool is that? Rose can be spotted to the left of the photo, and here we get a full body shot of her. And as the yellow ranger, what’s more fitting that sporting some yellow pants?
For those who’re not familiar with the campaign, NOH8 is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest. You can find their official website here.
Over 50 former and current Power Rangers from the past 22 years unite for #NOH8 to support equality worldwide! Can you spot the Rangers you grew up with?
More screen captures from “Power Rangers R.P.M” have been added to our gallery! Now up are episode 22 “The Dome Dolls”, 23 “And…Action” and 24 “Ancient History”. The 23rd episode is a special one, as it differs from the regular format, and shows us behind the scenes footage, interviews with the cast about stunts and effects (though all the actors remain in their characters for these interviews) and my favorite part – bloopers! I enjoyed this episode so much that I have added the whole episode to our video archive so you can all watch it. It’s an episode you can watch without having seen the previous 22 , so if you want to learn more about the show you should definitely check it out. Enjoy!
We continue to work on the Power Rangers R.P.M category in our gallery, and have now added screen captures from the episodes 19-21 – Belly of the Beast, Three’s a Crowd, Heroes Among Us and Not so Simple. Check them out in our gallery! More Power Rangers screen captures will be added later tonight/this week, stay tuned.
Hello friends! We continue to work on our film and TV sections, and today we have added screen captures from episodes 14 to 17 of Power Rangers R.P.M. An information page, episode guide and of course screen captures from the remaining episodes are coming up soon! We will also add a couple of episode clips to our video archive.
Links and previews from the episodes below – we hope you’ll like the photos!
Eric Goldman for ING recently did a short interview with Rose during a visit at the iZombie set, which you can now read below. For the trivia interested, the couple she is talking about in the interview is Olivia Tennet and Milo Cawthorne, both good friends of her, as well as “Power Rangers R.P.M” co-stars. She actually attended their wedding a few years ago, and a photo can be found here! All three of them also starred in “Maddigan’s Quest” back in 2006…
These days she’s eating brains on the CW’s highly entertaining iZombie, but before her role on that series, and shows like Once Upon a Time and Masters of Sex, Rose McIver was fighting bad guys as the Yellow Ranger on Power Rangers RPM.
On a recent visit to the set of iZombie, I briefly asked McIver if she had any advice for the cast of the upcoming Power Rangers movie and spoke to her about the notably successful cast of RPM, which also starred Eka Darville (Jessica Jones) and Adelaide Kane (Reign).
IGN: They are making this new Power Rangers movie, which is getting a lot of attention. Do you have any advice to these new Power Rangers, having been a Ranger yourself?
McIver: Oh my goodness, that was probably one of the funnest eight months stints of my life. We just laughed our heads off; we had so much fun. I think, make sure you enjoy it. Don’t take yourselves too seriously. You’re fighting monsters in rubber suits. But it’s a blast! It’s so cool and it’s so cool to be a part of something that as a child my peers watched and I look now and there are children watching it still. It sort of transcends one particular generation and that’s so fun to be part of, so enjoy every minute.
IGN: I spoke to Eka Darville recently about Jessica Jones and you’ve got Adelaide [Kane] on Reign. Your cast seems to be doing very well! What was the alchemy on that?
Rose McIver: We all just felt like such a good group of friends. I actually saw recently that Eka had gone on a road trip with Ari Boyland, who played the Blue Ranger. They are still great friends. I think there’s been a lot of personal and professional crossover. A couple of them got married! Two of my very dear friends got married from that show so it was a very special kind of time in everybody’s lives. [Proceed to full article + a funny Power Rangers video]
We have added 400+ screencaptures of Rose as Summer / Ranger Yellow in episode 10 to 13 of “Power Rangers R.P.M” (the 17th season of the show). We hope you enjoy the new additions!

There are so many different takes on zombies today. What sets the iZombie story apart from others?
I feel like iZombie is a world that acknowledges that zombies exist in pop culture. And it looks at the trajectory of zombie movies like Night of the Living Dead and 28 Days Later and acknowledges them in a way I think we haven’t seen before. So it lends itself to being a lot of fun and lighthearted.
You’re in a zombie apocalypse and you have to leave your house right away. What article of clothing do you grab first?
A bike helmet. I would rather be running in my thermals with a bike helmet than anything else, because that’s what zombies are going to be going for, so it’s for protection.
Liv solves homicide cases by inheriting memories. If you could solve any real-life case or mystery, which would it be and why?
Well I think in moral terms it would be nice to get inside a missing person’s case, but for pure sensationalist curiosity, I think it would be really interesting to know what happened with Marilyn Monroe.
Liv has a signature beauty look (pale skin, dark eyes). What’s your go-to look in real life?
I think good skin is always appealing, so actually a skincare regime would be my go-to favorite thing, like a nice moisturizer. I’ve been loving Kate Somerville lately. I think it’s nice to see people’s real beauty and who they are. In my own life, when it’s not for photo shoots or anything else, I think it’s nice to have quite a minimal look.
What has been the most exciting part of joining the cast of Masters of Sex?
Allison Janney—I’m a huge fan of hers. I think she is so endearing and smart and beautiful and surprising as an actor. You know, she makes really great choices. Whenever I work with her, I feel very inspired, and it’s a good reminder of the ability for it to be a creative process.
The show takes place in the ’50s. Are you inspired at all by the fashion of that era?
Very much so. My body type in general doesn’t lend itself to model-ish clothes and big baggy T-shirts and things like that. I tend to look a lot better with tapered waists and very feminine designs, so working on a show based in the 1950s is just a godsend for that reason.
You were a Power Ranger at one point! What was the best part about playing the Yellow Ranger?
Well it’s safe to say that I wasn’t inspired by the fashion of the Power Rangers; I was very ready to see the death of my yellow spandex suit. But the best part was it had a large stunt component. That was really great to develop a strong understanding of martial arts and being able to keep on top of that physical acting ability. But also, just working with friends. It shot in New Zealand about a half an hour away from where I lived, and I was working with people, a lot of whom I had know since I was 12, so it was a great group of people and very fun.
Describe your personal style in three words.
Feminine. Practical. Fresh.
What are some of your favorite places to shop (in the U.S. and New Zealand)?
In New Zealand, my favorites are Juliette Hogan and RUBY. I absolutely love their lines; they have brilliant stuff. In terms of out here… I mean, all sorts. I walked into Barneys the other day, and that’s a dangerous place for me to be. I like little boutiques as well, like Mohawk General Store in Silver Lake, and there’s another one called Bucks & Does. Both carry a great range of designers and some braver choices that I wouldn’t necessarily make walking around a department store.
Is there a piece you are wearing over and over right now?
Yes, a red playsuit from RUBY, which is the New Zealand label I was talking about. It’s great, because in L.A. it’s supposed to be spring, but it’s 86 degrees today, so I am very happy that the piece is light and almost like you are wearing nothing at all. It’s great for those long freeway drives in the heat.
What’s your favorite weekend escape?
I really like Point Mugu, which is north of Malibu. There’s a little campsite up there that my friends and I discovered a couple of years ago, and we were actually back there last weekend camping. It’s really cute. It’s quaint, right next to the water, and only an hour and a half outside the city, so you can’t justify it being too far. I really like spending time at the beach. I grew up near the water at home, and it feels very good for me.
I read that you write from time to time. What do you like to write?
My long-term goal is I would love to write a novel. I am an avid reader myself of fiction, and that’s something I’d really like to do. I’ve written a film called Crystal that we’re hoping to make within the next couple of years. It’s something that I would just be acting as a writer and a producer on. I am not going to be in it, and I think that was a wise decision for the first script, to write something where there is no agenda for you or how you want to portray yourself or a character that is particularly fascinating for me to play, but just characters that I’m interested in and empathize with, and just working on developing those.
In terms of writing a novel, what kind of genres are you interested in?
Well, I love people like Jonathan Franzen and Wally Lamb and Donna Hart; those are some examples of novelists that currently inspire me. And Margaret Atwood. Just contemporary authors who write and understand the human condition and write with a lot of empathy. I really like that Wally Lamb is fascinated by women’s penitentiaries. He works a lot with the New York correctional institute and the female prisoners and gets them to tell their stories and curates and edits these amazing pieces. I just think empathetic stories where we understand people’s transgressions and backstories and who people are and where they come from and why they make the decisions they do, that’s something that really interests me.
What are you currently reading?
I just finished a book called The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan that is this really harrowing, fascinating story about Australian POWs working in the Japanese empire building the railway train to Burma. It’s just an amazing, very textured story of these two men from other sides of the world trying to be good people but making bad decisions at times. Again, it’s all about empathy and why people make these silly, horrific choices in life but believe they are doing the right thing. I absolutely loved it, but it’s very dark, so I’m actually on the lookout for something that is a little lighter, just something really funny. I do like to read funny novels. I remember this guy, Mil Millington, who writes really funny novels, so I’m going to have to find one of his.
You’ve played a wide range of characters in your career. Is there something you haven’t done yet that you would like to?
Yes, I would like to play a villain. I’ve never played a true villain. That’s something I’m actually looking at for a couple of [projects] right now, so it’s very much on the horizon.
Do you have a favorite villain?
Javier Bardem was pretty good in [Skyfall]. And people like Tilda Swinton are wonderful; she does that very, very well.
What is your TV guilty pleasure?
You know what, I tuned in to one of the most shocking, ridiculous reality shows I’ve ever heard of—it’s almost like a car accident I couldn’t look away from—called Bridalplasty. I have to confess I watched two full episodes. It’s brides competing, and the winner gets drastic plastic surgery. I couldn’t believe it. That was one of those things that is totally salacious, and I watched it fascinated and kind of in shock.
What song are you listening to on repeat?
I’ve been doing a little bit of a throwback with Blaze Foley, an old country singer. The song is “If I Could Only Fly.” It’s really sad but beautiful.
