Today, AMC released a time-lapse video and behind-the-scenes photos of Zachary Quinto’s transformation into the evil and immortal Charlie Manx from the network’s new supernatural horror series, “NOS4A2.” The series, based on Joe Hill’s 2013 best-selling novel of the same, will premiere on Sunday, June 2 at 10:00pm ET/9:00pm CT.
“NOS4A2” introduces Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx (Quinto). Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted place of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims – without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
The series stars Emmy-nominated actor and producer Zachary Quinto (“Star Trek,” “American Horror Story”) and rising star Ashleigh Cummings (“The Goldfinch”). Emmy-nominated director Kari Skogland (“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Sons of Liberty”) directed the first two episodes of the series. The cast also includes Olafur Darri Olafsson (“Lady Dynamite”) as Bing Partridge, Virginia Kull (“The Looming Tower”) as Linda McQueen, Ebon Moss-Bachrach (“The Punisher”) as Chris McQueen and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J) as Maggie Leigh.
“NOS4A2” is executive produced by showrunner Jami O’Brien (“Fear the Walking Dead,” “Hell on Wheels”), Lauren Corrao, co-president of Tornante Television, and Hill. The series is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television.
