Felicia Day to star in Dragon Age web series

BioWare is readying the release of a live-action Dragon Age web series featuring the writing and acting talents of The Guild star Felicia Day. If that sentence isn't the greatest thing you've read today, then you either don't know Day, you're cynical about promotional web series, or you're having a vastly more exciting Tuesday than we are.

Entitled Dragon Age: Redemption, the six-episode series stars Felicia Day as an Elven assassin named Tallis who must track down a rogue mage to win her freedom in Ferelden.

"Tallis is headstrong, she fights dirty, and she has a really sarcastic sense of humor," explained Day to USA Today. "I wanted to bring a modern sensibility to a fantasy character in a fantasy world."

The series was filmed last month in the mythical land of L.A by director Peter Winther (Associate Producer, Independence Day) and cinematographer John Bartley (Lost). It is currently in post-production stage with plans to air later in the year.

As to what fans of talented, red-headed elves and BioWare's Dragon Age series can expect, Day insisted, "I put every single effort into making this something that gamers will be proud of. Even though we were constrained a lot as a web series, none of the people who were involved took that as a constraint. They took that as a challenge."

Speaking of challenges and bad segues, Day revealed that she has begun preliminary work on season five of the The Guild, which will be available on Microsoft's Xbox Live.

The Dragon Age: Redemption trailer will debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, Febuary 16. Dragon Age 2, the game, will be released March 8 in North America, and March 11 in Europe.

    Felica Day seems like a good fit, at least she can act, aside from the pretty face.

    The second one for me. I've become quite cynical about promotional web series.

    Felicia day has some talent so, this might be pretty good. But with all the news I've read about DA2 I've pretty much lost all interest in the actually game. I'll still check out this series though. :)

    I don't usually bash, but I don't see the appeal. She's okay, I suppose, since I don't feel such a strong feeling as "hate" towards things like this, but she just doesn't do it for me. I think The Guild is average at best, and I really don't like that avatar song they made. Eh. I'll let you all enjoy this.
