It came through my agency first, and they sent me the script and some sides.
But once I read the script, the language that John [Logan] has written is so beautiful that it made me instantly interested. The writing is what drew me in, from the beginning. Without specifically calling out any of those other projects, what was lacking in the other scripts that you were reading, that this project had?
When I look at any script or story, I look for similar things that I look for when I listen to music. Those are the three words I would use to describe what most attracts me to a piece of art that I might potentially be involved in, or even just things to enjoy.

But then again, every now and then, I love a good silly comedy. Billy Madison is one of my favorite movies, of all time.
It has all those things that I just mentioned, but in a different way. With as mysterious as Dorian Gray still is, do you even know much of his journey yet?
I know what I need to know, at this point. I remember being in school and some of my teachers would only give me the information that I absolutely needed to have, and then there would be some master plan where it would make a lot of sense, down the line, in terms of how things are revealed slowly.

With a film, you go in knowing the entire script and where the story begins and how it ends. The cool thing is that, even after reading the first season, I felt similarly to you. While there are things that are tied up, it still keeps you wanting more, which is what I love about this show so much. The Season 2 renewal has already been announced. Will you be back for the second season?
Yeah, I will be coming back. However, when Ethan steps out, Victor holds a pillow over her face and smothers Brona to death.

After an evening out with Dorian, Lily strays from her neighborhood and goes to a pub. A man attempts to seduce her, and she goes back to his house with him. During sex, she strangles him to death and lays with his corpse till morning, claiming to a livid Victor that she fell asleep on a park bench.
Eventually, the Creature grows impatient with Victor's possessiveness of Lily, and confronts her while Victor is away.

She reveals that she knows exactly what she is, and that she knows her resurrection made her immortal.
Lily promises that she will never serve another man again, and instead swears that they will kneel to her. She offers the Creature to overthrow mankind with her, but he is terrified and refuses. With a gun pointed at her, Lily reveals that she knew what was going on all along and who she was before, and claims that she was only pretending to be in love with Victor, waiting for the right time to strike.
