Toronto, ON – November 7, 2013
Actor Steve Lund stars as werewolf Nick Sorrentino in Bitten, the TV adaptation of the best-selling novel series by Canadian author Kelley Armstrong, airing on Syfy and Space in Winter 2014.
Bitten is a werewolf driven tale set in Toronto, Ontario and Upstate New York that revolves around the only female werewolf in history, Elena Michaels (Smallville’s Laura Vandervoort) The story unfolds as she learns to cope with problems facing the pack and their supernatural world, kept from humans for centuries. Risk of exposure fuels this emotionally charged thriller and examines the age-old battle between man and beast, as human and inhuman forces come to a head, with Elena at the centre.
Steve’s character, Nick Sorrentino, is a young werewolf, who is the grandson of the former pack Alpha. With a laid back candour and no interest of taking over the family business, Nick is now forced to put his personal matters aside, in order to stave off the extinction of his kind.
“Playing a werewolf, especially Nick, is an exciting job to have and one that requires a unique intensity,” says Steve Lund. “Nick is a fun-loving guy who seeks pleasure in many things, namely women, but when called upon his loyalty is unwavering.”
Also starring in Bitten is Alcatraz’s Greyston Holt, XIII: The Series’ Greg Bryk, and Wicked Wicked Games’ Paul Greene.
Bitten was produced by No Equal Entertainment, Hoodwink Entertainment, and eOne in association with Space.
Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Steve was originally pursuing a promising hockey career, however after suffering an injury this dream came to a halt. Shifting from athletics to theatrics, Steve used this opportunity to explore his love for acting.
Attending the Vancouver Film School’s Acting Program, Steve got his big break as Stewart on Yukonic!, a web series following two friends exploring Canada’s Yukon in search of gold treasure to fund their next film project.
