Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful’ Teaser: Eva Green Reveals Herself in First Footage
Recently, Showtime afforded us an inside look at its new monster-mash series ‘Penny Dreadful‘ by way of its title’s explanation, though the insider preview neglected any of its main stars. That all changes as ‘Penny Dreadful’ now serves up its first look at pious attraction Eva Green (‘300: Rise of An Empire‘) up to no natural good!
Though only briefly showcasing any real footage, the latest ‘Penny Dreadful’ teaser highlights Eva Green in her role as Vanessa, an enigmatic beauty and “a force to be reckoned with.” Helmed by ‘Skyfall‘ duo Sam Mendes and John Logan, Showtime describes ‘Penny Dreadful’ thusly:
In PENNY DREADFUL, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula – become embroiled in Victorian London. The series weaves together these classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation.
In addition to Green, the series stars Josh Hartnett as Ethan Chandler, a “man of action and daring” who doesn’t shy away from violence; Timothy Dalton as Sir Malcolm, a hardened African explorer on a deeply personal quest; Reeve Carney as Dorian Grey; Helen McCrory as spiritualist Madame Kali; ‘Skyfall”s Rory Kinnear; and ‘Doctor Who‘ vet Billie Piper as an Irish immigrant seeking to escape her dark past.
