Trenna Keating as Doc Yewll
Doc Yewll arrived in Defiance following the Pale Wars, intending to stay a week before moving on to dispense medical care in other war-torn areas. Eight years later, Yewll still serves as the town’s doctor. As an Indogene – a technologically advanced Votan race – she often finds her natural pragmatism perceived as a lack of bedside manner by most humans. However, Yewll’s unflappable brilliance is indisputably one of Defiance’s greatest assets.
A self-described “prairie girl,” Trenna Keating was born and raised in Weyburn, Saskatchewan (quite possibly the coldest place on the planet, according to her).
Keating started studying acting at the age of 10. She has held a variety of positions imaginable in the film industry –including a stand-in, casting assistant, background casting director and director’s assistant, to name a few. She is also a playwright.
Film and television credits include Combat Hospital, A Dog Named Christmas, Corner Gas, Little Mosque on the Prairie, A Prairie Giant-The Tommy Douglas Story, Just Friends and Renegadepress.com.
