Now in its eighth edition, Roma Fiction Fest 2014 sees Carlo Freccero at the helm, and a rich programme of high calibre television shows presented on the big screen. Sadly, however, very few international stars are slated to appear at this year's festival, so it was great to see Goran Visnjic tread the festival’s pink carpet at the Auditorium Parco della Musica yesterday evening. While Visnjic is probably best known to TV viewers for his recurring starring role as Doctor Luca Kovac in the ground-breaking TV medical drama ER, he was at the Roma Fiction Fest for the Italian TV Première of his recent US sci-fi drama Extant, in which he co-stars with Halle Berry. The actor took time to pose for photographs and sign autographs for fans before taking the stage in Sala Petrassi to introduce the opening episode.
Extant will see its Italian television première on Rai 3 tomorrow evening.
