‘Carnival Row’: David Gyasi, Karla Crome, Indira Varma & Tamzin Merchant Join Amazon’s Fantasy Drama Series

Amazon is rounding out its cast for Carnival Row, adding David Gyasi (Interstellar), Karla Crome (Misfits), Indira Varma (Game of Thrones), and Tamzin Merchant (Salem) to the eight-episode straight-to-series fantasy drama, from Rene Echevarria, Travis Beacham, Paul McGuigan and Legendary Television. They join previously cast Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne.

Carnival Row is described as a fantasy-noir set in a neo-Victorian city. Mythical creatures fleeing their war-torn homeland have gathered in the city, and tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population. The series follows the investigation into a string of unsolved murders that are eating away at whatever uneasy peace still exists.

Gyasi will play Agreus, a mysteriously wealthy faun who moves into an affluent human neighborhood in defiance of the social order. Crome will play Tourmaline, a quick-witted faerie love poet driven from her war-torn homeland and forced to work in a brothel on Carnival Row. Varma will play Piety Breakspear, the regal and cunning matriarch of the powerful family that rules the city of the Burgue. Merchant will play Imogen Spurnrose, a young woman who sees in Agreus an opportunity to turn her aristocratic family’s fading fortunes around.

Executive producing Carnival Row, which starts production this fall in Prague for 2019 premiere, are writer/showrunner Echevarria, Beacham, on whose feature script the project is based, and McGuigan, who will direct.

Merchant’s credits include roles as Katherine Howard in Showtime’s The Tudors, Mary Rivers in Cary Fukanaga’s Jane Eyre, and Anne Hale in WGN’s Salem. She has also appeared in many UK and U.S. TV productions for the BBC, the CW and ITV.
