Solenn Heussaff unleashes wild side with ‘Teen Wolf’
MANILA, Philippines—Fashion model, budding actress, singer and painter Solenn Heussaff adds a new feather to her wings as she unleashes her wild side with “Teen Wolf,” AXN Beyond’s newest supernatural action-romance series.
Being Teen Wolf’s “Wolf Mate” ambassador, Solenn will be featured in show introductions as well as reviews of various episodes to tease and engage viewers. Likewise, on-air vignettes will also showcase her sharing all things Teen Wolf, from exclusive interviews with the show’s cast members to her own lifestyle and fashion tips to “unleashing her wild side.”
“I had a sneak preview of the premiering episode of Teen Wolf and was absolutely smitten by its premise, characters and intensity. I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds on AXN Beyond! Its sexiness, great writing, humor and fresh-faced cast make Teen Wolf different from the gamut of shows in this genre,” said Solenn.
Teen Wolf stars Tyler Posey (Lincoln Heights, Brothers and Sisters) as Scott McCall, an unnoticed outsider waiting to be recognized in some small way to take him out of his typical state of high school anonymity. When his best friend Stiles Stilinski (Dylan O’Brien, High Road), convinces him to go into the woods one night to join a police search for a dead body, Scott encounters a creature in the darkness. Narrowly surviving its attack with a vicious bite to his side, Scott awakes the next day to strange surprises and his life is never the same again.
Acquiring superhuman wolf-like abilities, Scott now hears things he could not be able to hear, sees with startling accuracy, and moves with incredible reflexes. Usually a bench warmer, Scott with his newfound powers, becomes a first team player for the school lacrosse team, outdoing even the top player Jackson Whittemore, played by actor-model Colton Hayes (The Gates). Sparkling the interest of Lydia Martin (Holland Roden, Lost), the most popular girl in school, Scott falls instead for Allison Argent, the mysterious new girl in town played by Crystal Reed (Skyline).
Not only does Scott have to supress his wolfish instincts and urges, he has to contend with other werewolves, including Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin, Road to Perdition, 7th Heaven), the more experienced and dangerous werewolf thought to be responsible for the life-changing bite. And as the story unfolds, Scott will have to fight a family of werewolf hunters, the leader who turns out to be Allison’s father.
With a forbidden romance set against the drama of high school life, Teen Wolf follows a dark, thrilling plot and delves into the themes of self-discovery, struggles and angst among its teenage characters coming into their own. Topped by an attractive, young and fresh-faced cast line-up, Teen Wolf has the makings of the next big TV series in the massively popular action-romance genre.
With all the ingredients of a hit show coming together and a sultry local celebrity ambassador, Filipino viewers can surely expect a wild and exciting good time with Teen Wolf, howling this July 17 on AXN Beyond.
