Being Human's new vampire is revealed
At the end of the last series of Being Human, sexy Irish vampire Mitchell died when actor Aiden Turner moved on to bigger and better things. But fear not, vampire fans, there's going to be another vampire in the show and he's going to be played by Damien Molony.
Damien is just as pretty as Mitchell and he's also Irish. Um, is new vampire Hal just going to be a carbon copy of Mitchell?
“I’m actually playing an English vampire!” Damien insists. “Very, very posh. Very upper class. A stiff upper-lipped Brit, which is a bit of a push for me accent, but it makes it a lot more fun. I promise you, no! No, no, no – Hal’s not Mitchell 2. There’s a lot of back story to play with and I assure you he’s very, very different.”
And for fans of the look the last two Doctor's and Sherlock have been rocking, you'll probably approve of this vampire's wardrobe.
“At the start, I’m a tweed suits man,” says Molony. “Very, very well dressed. Pressed shirts and cufflinks. The best part about playing a vampire is you get all the best clothes. I know some people have raided Aidan’s wardrobe from last year, and helped themselves to some coats and some jackets.”
There will be a full interview about Being Human with Damien Molony in issue 215 of SFX, which is on sale from Wednesday.
