We’ve been crushing on Discovery of Witches, the first of the All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness since 2017 so if you’re a regular TN reader you’ll know this. But, If you have yet to fall in love with Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer, let us introduce you to the screen versions Matthew Clairmont and Diana Bishop .
A Behind the Scenes Look at the Characters
Who are the Vampires in this world beyond Matthew? That’s Normal started because of our love of vampires, but there are no sparkles in the sunlight here… Meet the creatures who are centuries old and nothing like the Volturi or Cullen clans, yet all we saw were some Twilight or Vampire Diaries comparisons.
The story is the discovery of witches and we need to know more about Alex Kingston and the rest of the actors who are the witches. Elementals, spells, potions! While the vampires may have felt a little like Twilight, the witches feel nothing like Harry Potter.
The difference in this world is the third creature is Daemons and not werewolves. Understanding them is is fascinating and I learned more about them watching this featurette!
After you’ve watched episodes 1 and 2, listen to our Hangout or Podcast on iTunes. We’ll be back with more DOW coverage when casting news for Shadow of Night starts to surface. They’ve been picked up for Seasons 2 & 3 so we’ll soon know who will play Gallowglass and Philippe as well as others not to spoil for those who haven’t read it!
