We recently did a short Q&A with Eva’s Penny Dreadful co-star Fady Elsayed, who plays The Lead Familiar, and wanted to share it with you guys. Enjoy!

EGW: Hey Fady! How are you?
FADY: I’m great, thanks for asking.
EGW: We know you are busy so we’ll get to the point and ask: How was it like to work with Eva?
FADY: Working with Eva was the best experience of my life. I was in awe of her. The way she looked, talk, walked even the way she shook my hand.
I had the privilege of hearing Eva recite her Arabic dialogue to me as I spoke Arabic and she wanted to see if it sounded good.
Her Arabic was amazing!!
EGW: That’s very nice to hear as this is a new trivia about her. Did she happen to mention how she learned to speak in Arabic or was it all just in preparation for Vanessa Ives?
FADY: She prepared everything herself.
EGW: Wow! This sounds just like her because she prepares a lot when it comes to her roles. Could you tell us what she was like on the set? I mean, does she keep to herself or does she joke around with co-stars and crew, etc.?
FADY: She’s very friendly and very sociable with everyone who speaks with her. It felt like she was in always in character.
EGW: Congratulations on the awesome premiere of Penny Dreadful! You did an awesome job and we hope to see more of you!
FADY: Thanks so much! I have a great feeling about the show! Enjoy the rest of it xx
