“The Tudors” and “Game of Thrones” actress Natalie Dormer will play a supernatural demon in John Logan’s sequel/spin-off series “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” at Showtime. Filming begins this year.
The new show will feature all new characters and storylines and shifts the action from late 1800s UK to 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension.
When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) is embroiled in an epic story unfurling against the period – the building of the city’s first freeways, deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism.
Dormer is Magda, a supernatural demon who can take the appearance of anyone she chooses and who manifests in a number of guises throughout the story. Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves co-star.
