Grant Bowler as Nolan

Nolan

Joshua Nolan is a former lieutenant in the Earth Military Coalition who fought in the alien conflict. Born prior to the Arks’ arrival, he saw his comfortable life turned upside down when the war between the humans and Votans began. The conflict took its toll, and in the aftermath of Arkfall, he found himself a wanderer in a dangerous new world. There he was joined by Irisa, a young Irathient he raised as his own, and who served as his lone companion in the lawless badlands.  

Grant Bowler

Grant Bowler is no stranger to the Syfy family, having appeared in Chiller’s 2011 zombie opus, Remains, as well as three other major releases: Atlas Shrugged, The City of Guardians and The Killer Elite alongside Robert De Niro, Clive Owen and Jason Statham. Recent credits include playing Richard Burton to Lindsay Lohan’s Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick.

Bowler is no doubt beloved by genre fans for his role as Cooter, the biker werewolf, on HBO’s monster mash-up True Blood, as well as a turn on the sci-fi smash Lost  as the mysterious Captain Gault.

Prior to basing himself in Los Angeles, Bowler starred in many Australian TV dramas including Blue Heelers, Pacific Drive, All Saints, and Something in the Air. He starred in the mini-series Through My Eyes about the disappearance of Azaira Chamberlin’s baby. He’s also been seen in the New Zealand crime drama Outrageous Fortune, where he was nominated as Best Supporting Actor at the 2010 Qantas Film and Television Awards.
