Meet 19-year-old Vancouver actor Dakota Daulby who’s having a very good year.
Tonight he makes his debut in the Canadian premiere of the fourth season of alien invasion series Falling Skies on Super Channel, but not as one of the good guys. His character Kent runs a Hitler Youth-style camp — filmed at Coquitlam’s Riverview Hospital — which brainwashes kids into thinking that the aliens are on Earth for peaceful reasons not to wipe out humanity. Somehow the youngest Mason (Maxim Knight) ends up in his program after 2nd Mass — the small band of resistance fighters who’ve rebelled against the occupying alien force for three seasons — are separated. Matt Mason (Knight) pretends to go along with the re-education for a while until something happens. Daulby couldn’t say what except to add how much he enjoyed working with Knight and his briefer interactions with Noah Wyle who plays Matt’s father Tom Mason, the de-facto leader of 2nd Mass. The only negative about Daulby’s role: Riverview Hospital gets pretty spooky at night and this Vancouver-born actor’s not keen on ghosts.
