THE NEVERS: Amy Manson is ‘Maladie’ in new series!
A new series will soon be released on Sky - THE NEVERS!
The Nevers is described as "an epic science fiction drama about a gang of Victorian women and men who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world."
According to the show’s official website - the synopsis reads:
August, 1896. Victorian London is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event which gives certain people — mostly women — abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. But no matter their particular “turns,” all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.
The Nevers is executive produced by Joss Whedon, Bernadette Caulfield, Ilene S. Landress, Doug Petrie, Jane Espenson and Philippa Goslett. Daniel S. Kaminsky co-executive produces.
Scottish actress, Amy Manson plays the mysterious Maladie in the show. Maladie is the Jack the Ripper of The Nevers’ world – a dangerous, bloody threat to the Touched and Untouched alike with a flair for the dramatic. In fact, our first introduction to her as a character occurs literally onstage as she slits the throat of an actor playing the devil (“I kilt da devull! Is no one going tuh say fank you???”). Maladie is therefore a blight on polite Victorian London society…or a “malady.” It’s also probably not a coincidence that “maladie” means “disease” in French.
Amy chats to Local TV here about her role in the show.
