Penny Dreadful: City of Angels - Natalie Dormer Joins Cast



NATALIE DORMER JOINS SHOWTIME DRAMA SERIES PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS

John Logan To Executive Produce Next Chapter Of Emmy® Nominated Series, Set In 1930s Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES – February 22, 2019 – SHOWTIME has announced that Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones) will join PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS, the next chapter of the PENNY DREADFUL saga, in the role of Magda, a supernatural demon who can take the appearance of anyone she chooses and manifests in a number of guises throughout the story. Charismatic, clever and chameleonic, Magda is a dangerous enemy and an invaluable ally. Tony® and Golden Globe® award winner and three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan, creator, writer and executive producer of the Emmy nominated series PENNY DREADFUL, will continue in those same roles. Michael Aguilar (KIDDING) will also serve as executive producer. Production on the drama series is expected to begin later this year.

Dormer starred as fan favorite and would-be queen Margaery Tyrell for the first six seasons of Game Of Thrones. Dormer’s previous television credits include her starring role as Anne Boleyn on the hit SHOWTIME drama THE TUDORS, along with Picnic At Hanging Rock, The Scandalous Lady Woman and Elementary. In film, she starred in the indie psychological revenge thriller In Darkness, which she co-wrote with the film’s director Anthony Bryne. Previous film credits include the lead role in the supernatural thriller The Forest, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2, The Riot Club, Rush, The Counselor, W.E and Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger. She can also be seen in the upcoming film adaptation of The Professor and the Madman and The Dark Crystal.

A spiritual descendant of the original PENNY DREADFUL story set in Victorian-era London, PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) is embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city's first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart. PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS explores an exciting mix of the supernatural and the combustible reality of the period, creating new occult myths and moral dilemmas within a genuine historical backdrop. This chapter is a bold new vision that will employ all new characters and storylines. The series will also star Jessica Garza (The Purge) and Johnathan Nieves (New Amsterdam).

PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS is executive produced by John Logan and Michael Aguilar, along with Oscar® winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road), both of Neal Street Productions. Logan's Desert Wolf Productions will produce, and James Bagley will serve as co-executive producer. Paco Cabezas (PENNY DREADFUL, The Alienist) is set to direct multiple episodes.
