Season 2 of THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES started off spectacularly with the introduction of new friends, new foes ad a few new faces and one of those is the enigmatic General Riga, portrayed by Desmond Chiam. While General Chaim aims to eradicate all magic and those who wield it, his perspective is not entirely unsympathetic as he is entirely correct that magic has brought great trouble and terror across the Four Lands. Desmond Chiam’s portrayal is particularly intriguing as the audience understands that he truly believes that he has the best interest of everyone at heart. In an exclusive interview, Desmond takes about what drew him to this complex role and his reflections on his career as it continues to grow and afford amazing opportunities.
