David de Lautour, Craig Parker & Andrew Robertt on "Legend of the Seeker" (2008)

The new syndicated series "Legend of the Seeker" is filmed in New Zealand so it's no surprise that former PR faces are popping up on the series, even from the start. The show focuses on Richard Cypher a young man who discovers that he is the legendary Seeker, a swordsman who is destined to fight against evil. David de Lautour (RJ, Jungle Fury) appears as Richard's adopted brother, Michael, the councilor of their province who is swayed by the evil forces and believes Richard is responsible for the death of their father. Michael commits his forces to find and capture his brother, whom he believes is being controlled by a witch. He appears throughout the episode in a recurring role. Also recurring on the series is PR voice actor Craig Parker (voice of Motodrone, Ninja Storm) who plays the show's main villain Darken Rahl, the evil that the Seeker is prophecized to face and destroy. Parker appears in only two scenes of the first episode, titled "Prophecy." Another PR voice actor also appears. Andrew Robertt (voice of Morticon, Mystic Force) guest stars as Ranssyn Fane, the commander of Rahl's troops that seeks to destroy the Seeker and capture the mythic Book of Counted Shadows. Fans is the main enemy facing Richard in the first episode. All three actors would continue their roles into the series' second episode. Veteran PR director Mark Beesley directed this episode.
