Showtime’s upcoming horror series Penny Dreadful will premiere soon, but there's no day like today to meet the cast that’ll bring some truly iconic (and creepy) characters to life!
Penny Dreadful takes place in Victorian London -- 1891, to be specific, so three years after the Jack the Ripper murders shook Whitechapel and the world -- and features “all sorts of things that go bump in the night.”
Executive producers John Logan and Sam Mendes (the guys behind Skyfall) are creating a world where the history of horror comes together (a bit like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen but, hopefully, better than the movie), breathing new life into famous characters from films and literature.
The awesome cast includes Eva Green (Camelot, 300: Rise of an Empire), Billie Piper (Doctor Who), Josh Hartnett (30 Days of Night) and Timothy Dalton (License to Kill, Doctor Who).
Have a look at the cast and their characters below, thanks to IGN.
Penny Dreadful premieres on May 11. Will you be watching?
