Well..She seems to be playing a new(and likely minor) character named Blue:http://twitter.com/#!/tracyspiridakos/status/38667884884525056

But Just in case you guys never got this info.....

Here's what's said tho be the official Shooting Synopsis:

"Shao Kahn and Shang Tsung are obsessed with reigning over various realms (parallel universes) and the winners of Mortal Kombat competitions are granted supreme control over these worlds. The Earthrealm (Earth) is an unconscious participant in this competition and only a few select humans understand the consequences of losing Mortal Kombat and what it will mean to Earth."

http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/23349

And confirmation of Ed Boon's involvement and the runtime of each episode:

Tancharoen says there will be nine episodes in the MK live action series. Each will run for 7-10 minutes – and will explore the history of the characters in the game. (Some of the big characters, like Scorpion and Sub Zero might have their stories split into two parts.)



Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon is working with Tancharoen as he goes through pre-production. That was particularly exciting for the director, as his obsession with the franchise is ... well, thorough.

“We’re working together hand in hand,” he says.

I also think it needs to be posted on the front page.

He seems to be the perfect Stryker from what I've seen in him! Here are some shots:

Not that I am actually complaining about the picture tho tongue.

New character confirmed: "Blue"

According to Tracy Spiridakos' Twitter:

"Just finished filming on #MortalKombat today. What a great project to be a part of! Very excited! @RyRobbins @JeriLRyan @MichaelJaiWhite"

and

"My character is new to the #mortalkombat world her name is Blue!"

[Spiridakos] was also asked if there might be more to "Blue" but declined to comment. So, I wouldn't necessarily get married to the notion that there's a new character called Blue. She might very well be Kitana, or Sindel, or something along those lines.

Yes, MKO is aware of this stuff, and yes, there's going to be news.
Appreciate the help and the patience.

I'm not sure how anyone could mistake those two people, but yeah they're not the same. The naked guy is Jamie Bamber, a british actor, not Tahmoh Penikett.

Special Forces had a chick called Gemini,who was basically your handler in the field,Colonel Campbell-style. Maybe Blue is gonna be something like that.

Never noticed it was posted here. Should check next time.

What if Blue was a reference to the red Ninja in chains?

I know this is meant to be a digital series but do you think that possibly a tv channel will pick it up maybe for fall? I mean surely it can't be just to help promote MK9. Warner Bros could really do amazing things with the franchise.

It will, in all likelihood, find it's way to television and possibly DVD, at some point. In much the same way ridiculous motion comics have.

So, they did away with the Rebirth premise. Boo.

Tracy has been added to the cast list. An easier to read version of our cast coverage is still in the works.

I think it is likely if she's an extra character or something, however, each video being 7-10 minutes long kind of makes that feel pointless.

Maybe she's Frost in disguise?
