Felicia Day, star of the Internet series The Guild, will also be the star of Dragon Age: Redemption a web spin-off to the dark fantasy Dragon Age series that will debut this summer.

She also has a huge crush on Thane, the dying green alien from Mass Effect 2 ("He is not a lizard man!" she protested when I referred to him as such.) In New York yesterday she was promoting Redemption and effortlessly testifying to her gaming credentials. That's a combo that could benefit those of us who are disappointed with the live-action versions of video games that we've been subjected to so far.

Day would love to make a Mass Effect or Fallout movie someday, she told me. She gets it; she gets that gaming worlds are places you visit for eight or 80 hours, not two ‚ÄĒ something she thinks the current makers of video game movies miss. She's taking that respect to Dragon Age Redemption, though not with a Hollywood-size budget.

You'll get the gist from the quick video interview we shot. Not seen in the video: the picture she showed me on her iPhone of the nasty-looking busted lip she got while learning sword-fighting for the series. Look for its debut this summer. We've got a teaser for now.
