Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama starring Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett and Eva Green.
The dark and richly textured Gothic score is by one of the most exciting new names in film music, Abel Korzeniowski.
PENNY DREADFUL is currently unspooling its first season on Showtime.

Ahead of the UK’s Season 1 Tuesday finale of Penny Dreadful, EvaGreenWeb got a chance to exclusively interview its resident vampire. Armed with 15 questions and copies of Vanessa’s prayers in Latin, we ventured to the Demimonde to talk to Oxford School of Drama, Biochemist turned actor Robert Nairne. Find out below what the Cheltenham-raised actor thinks about the show, transmogrification, Ireland and what it’s like to work with Eva Green.
EvaGreenWeb: How did this all come about for you?
Robert Nairne: Well, I had been acting professionally in London for around two years, largely in fringe theatre productions and voiceovers/audiobooks. A breakdown then came in on Spotlight (the casting hub in the UK) looking for a very tall slender actor with some stunts experience…already my interest was piqued, but then when I researched the incredible production team and the pitch for the show I was gobsmacked by the opportunity, and did all I could to be seen…. Luckily the wonderful casting team responded straight away to my various pestering emails and I met them for an audition a few days later – and here I am now..! I will truly never forget that phone call offering me the role. At one point I think I actually asked if she was joking.
EGW: Can you briefly describe and explain who your character is to those who haven’t seen Penny Dreadful yet?
RN: Very little is really understood about these creatures in the Penny Dreadful universe so far. They seem to exist in the Demimonde, described so elegantly by Vanessa – preying on the living and roaming amongst the dead.
In ‘Penny Dreadful’, one such Vampire has abducted Sir Malcolm’s daughter, Mina Murray, prompting his increasingly frenetic hunt for her throughout the series. Why has she been taken though? Ooh you’ll have to watch and see…
EGW: There are so many different types of vampire lore now over the centuries, and this series uses specific types of lore that maybe people aren’t familiar with. Did you just go with what was in the script?
RN: The market is certainly quite saturated at the moment – which is why Penny D and its Vampires were so refreshing! I did of course do some research – I read Dracula and the original penny dreadful ‘Varney the Vampire’ (brilliant), and watched various movies from ‘Nosferatu’ to ‘Overworld’ – but yes the prime inspiration came from the script and John Logan’s brilliant mind. We had various discussions about The Vampires (affectionately named Penny and Felicity) throughout filming!
The French actress would have finally found her niche? She’s back with Penny Dreadful, an American horror TV series. Eva Green reveals her capacity of reinventing herself with genre films.
Sin City reinvented the comic-book movie as dirty, sexy and cool. Now Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller return with sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
“Eva’s eyes are so haunting… She’s irresistible” – Frank Miller
“She’s a princess, a lover, a goddess and a bitch…” – Eva Green on Ava Lord
