Are you obsessed with The Nevers yet? I can”t speak for everyone, but one of my faves is definitely Tom Riley – aka Augustus “Augie” Bidlow. So I hopped on Zoom with Tom to chat about what it was ike filming The Nevers, his favorite Easter eggs, and why my mom likes James Norton so much.
Northern Irish actor Laura Donnelly plays the role of Amalia True, a mysterious, quick-fisted widow. Hailing from Belfast, Laura’s first on-screen role was in Channel 4’s ‘Sugar Rush’ from the mid-2000s, and she has since gone on to star in ‘The Fall’, ‘Beowolf’, ‘Outlander’, and the movie ‘Tolkien’.
Ann Skelly joins Laura as Penance Adair, who is a brilliant young inventor, able to think up new and unique creations which manage to get the pair out of sticky situations. The Dublin actor had a leading role in Virgin Media’s ‘Red Rock’ as Rachel, and also popped up in ‘Vikings’ a number of times as Lady Ethelfled.
IndieWire Interview: Gemma Jackson and Tina Jones Talk Aliens and Victorian Inventions on The Nevers
For production designer Gemma Jackson and set director Tina Jones, collaborating on Joss Whedon’s supernatural Victorian thriller, “The Nevers” was like pulling the pin out of a grenade and watching the fantastical world explode. While this was a far cry from the medieval trappings of their Emmy-winning “Game of Thrones,” it was arguably more challenging to visualize Whedon’s cerebral take on political power and class division, where social misfits are “touched” with extraordinary abilities to save the planet from future destruction.

Something smells a bit off in the world of The Nevers. Why is The Touched’s benefactor Lavinia Bidlow, played by Rushmore’s Olivia Williams, cavorting below ground with Denis O’Hare’s evil Dr. Edmund Hague? Is she actually a true supporter of The Touched as they are, or is she seeking to capture and harness their special powers? And what is Pip Torrens’ Lord Gilbert Massen up to in Parliament and behind closed doors? His assault on The Touched might seem more forthright, but something feels off there too.
Only a handful of episodes remain in the first half of HBO’s period fantasy The Nevers and it looks like the show plans to end, not with a whisper, but with a gun-powder-fueled, opium-spewing, orgy-hosting bang.
During a virtual junket for the new show, Collider got the opportunity to chat with The Nevers’ pair of doctors, Zackary Momoh (who plays orphanage doctor Horatio Cousens, a man touched with healing powers) and Denis O’Hare (who plays deranged doctor Edmund Hague, a man searching for the source of the powers), and what most attracted them to this project, the similarities and differences between their characters, how little they knew in the beginning about who their characters would become, and the dynamic between Hague and Lavinia (Olivia Williams)
