Young star Burkely Duffield will get his biggest brush with sci-fi fandom courtesy of "Beyond."

Burkely Duffield is no stranger to the Comic Con scene.

The Canadian actor previously appeared in both “Warcraft” and “Masters of Science Fiction.” His latest gig should take him to a whole new level of the geek-friendly circuit.

He’s the star of Freeform’s new sci-fi entry, “Beyond.” Duffield plays Holden, a young man who awakens from a coma after 12 years to learn he developed unusual powers while he slept.

The actor opened up to HiT contributor Dave Minkus about landing the leading role, the glories of binge watching and what he hopes for the show’s immediate future.
