Actress Tonya Lee Williams in Anthony Zuiker’s Cybergeddon

Actress Tonya Lee Williams plays "Donna Berg" on Cybergeddon, a new feature-length project by CSI creator Anthony Zuiker. Cybergeddon is being released on Yahoo! Screen in nine parts – three parts per day for three days – from September 25 to 27, 2012. The online webisodes are expected to be available on 50 million screens in more than 25 countries.
"It's a wonderful experience to work on features made specifically for an online experience. I understand Yahoo! also premiered Tom Hanks' animated series, Electric City," Williams said.

Cybergeddon revolves around a female government agent (Missy Peregrym, Rookie Blues) who, while on the run from the law herself, is pursuing a master hacker (Olivier Martinez) bent on bringing the world to its cyber-knees. Williams plays the Head of the FBI Cyber-Terrorism department, "Donna Berg".

Williams is best known for her work as "Dr. Olivia Winters" on Young and the Restless. In addition to acting in Cybergeddon this summer, she also worked on Lifetime's Imperfect Justice with Rob Lowe and she recently wrapped filming on Empire of Dirt, a feature produced by Jennifer Podemski.

"I'm grateful and excited about all these projects.  It's been an exceptional year for me as an actress and I'm excited to see what the future holds," said Williams. 

When Williams is not in front of the screen, she is behind it as the Founder and Executive Director of ReelWorld Film Festival, an initiative based in Canada that she is very proud of. The five day festival showcases world-class cinema – dramas, documentaries, shorts, even music videos. It enters its 13th year in April 2013 and focuses on works that reflect diversity or are by emerging and established artists from Aboriginal, Asian, Black, Latino, Middle Eastern, South Asian and other racially diverse backgrounds.

"It's a lot of work, but very rewarding.  My festival focuses on showcasing great film and on giving emerging diverse talent access to the mainstream world of the entertainment industry," Williams added.

When asked if she would return to Young and the Restless, Williams responded:  "Of course. Y&R has always been good to me – I love the character Olivia and still feel there is a lot of life left in her".
