Claire Dodin, our Riley on "We're Alive", was a guest star on a recent episode of Spike TV's series "Deadliest Warrior". This is a history-based series that compares famous warrior cultures and/or leaders against one-another in simulated combat to determine which one is "the deadliest warrior". The show is immensely entertaining and a great way to learn about the weapons and tactics of older cultures.
Claire's episode was "Joan of Arc vs. William the Conqueror", comparing the 15th Century female French leader and the 11th Century Norman warrior. Claire was billed as a mediaeval sword and combat expert. She demonstrated the use of the armor, swords and crossbows that were used by Joan of Arc and her forces. Her crossbow work was excellent and her sword work was amazing; KC really needs to put a sword in Rileys hands sometime soon! In the end Joan of Arc was judged to be the deadliest warrior.
It was great seeing Claire and hearing that familiar voice coming from an actual person. Deadliest Warrior has another episode coming up that should be of special interest to Were Alive fans, featuring Zombies vs. Vampires.
