AMC has released the first photo of Zachary Quinto in full make-up as the ancient, supernaturally powered vampire-like Charlie Manx in the ten-episode TV adaptation of Joe Hill’s “NOS4A2”.
Manx feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law.
Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young, working-class artist in New England (Ashleigh Cummings) discovers she has a dangerous gift – a supernatural ability to track Manx. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Virginia Kull and Jahkara Smith co-star. Jami O’Brien (“Hell On Wheels”) serves as showrunner which Hill will also executive produce.
