Carnival Row - Alice Krige & Jared Harris to Recur on Amazon's Fantasy Series

Alice Krige (Tyrant) and Jared Harris (The Crown) are set for recurring roles on Carnival Row, Amazon’s eight-episode straight-to-series fantasy drama, from Rene Echevarria, Travis Beacham, Paul McGuigan and Legendary Television.

Carnival Row is described as a fantasy-noir set in a neo-Victorian city. Mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population. The series follows the investigation into a string of unsolved murders that are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists.

Krige will portray Haruspex, a witch-like clairvoyant who warns that a great reckoning is upon the city. Harris plays Absalom Breakspear, the imperious and secretive Chancellor of the Burgue, besieged by political enemies from all sides.
