FX’s ‘The Strain’ Preview: Go Behind the Scenes of Guillermo del Toro’s Vampire Drama
We’re just weeks away from seeing Guillermo del Toro realize his vampire vision with the premiere of FX’s ‘The Strain,’ though you needn’t wait that long for a bit of fresh blood. Go inside ‘The Strain’ with brand new featurettes that explore behind the scenes of FX’s new vampire drama to reveal story, characters, and the world at large!
Based on del Toro’s 2009 novel trilogy, ‘The Strain’ follows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (‘House of Cards‘ Corey Stoll), a CDC operative who investigates a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
Also present among the cast are Regina King, Sean Astin (‘Lord of the Rings‘), Roger Cross (‘24‘), Leslie Hope, Robert Maillet (‘Pacific Rim‘), Mia Maestro (‘Alias’), Lauren Lee Smith, Miguel Gomez, Kevin Durand (‘LOST‘), David Bradley (‘Game of Thrones,’ replacing John Hurt) and Richard Sammel (‘Inglorious Basterds’). Former ‘LOST’ and current ‘Bates Motel‘ showrunner Carlton Cuse will helm FX’s adaptation from a screenplay by del Toro and novel co-writer Michael Hogan.
