Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful‘ is just under 2 months from returning to the small screen and the influx of promos are just starting. This time we have the latest of Eva Green talking about her role on the series. The network gave us plenty of behind the scenes material prior to the release of the first season and it looks as if they’ll be continuing the tradition going forward. We’ve already seen that the first teaser included Dorian Grey and I suspect we’ll have one for each of the major players on the show. As Vanessa Ives is an extremely complex character with more of her story being told, I’m happy that we’ll be getting an idea of her mindset prior to the upcoming season’s premiere.
We already know that Vanessa will once again have a major role to play in the upcoming season. We’ll be seeing her bond with Josh Hartnett’s Ethan grow significantly. On top of that, we’ll have seeing Patti LuPone show up as a character who is going to be very important to Vanessa’s past, though what that means for her future is still uncertain. To top things off, Helen McCrory will be returning as Madame Kali who is not happy with how Vanessa showed her up last season.
The video actually starts off with Green in character performing a ritual before starting to explain her take on what we can expect when the series returns. She is very hopeful of her character stating that while even Vanessa is usually surrounded in darkness, she wants to do the right thing.
I think she has had a fun take on Ices so far and the previews here have me really interested in what direction they’ll be taking her going forward.
Are you looking forward to the second season of ‘Penny Dreadful’? What do you think of Green’s portrayal of Vanessa Ives?
‘Penny Dreadful’ will be returning to Showtime for the second season on Sunday May 3rd at 10pm Est
