Excluse Q&A with James Hawes director of Penny Dreadful's ep7 'Possession'
  • EGW: On a scale of 1 to Eva Green, how intense is the episode?
  • James Hawes: Well I guess you, the audience, must decide. But I'm pretty confident we're talking a 10 on the intensity scale...
  • EGW: Could you share any production tidbit with us on directing Eva?
  • JH: What you need to know is that Eva is the most extraordinarily committed and exciting if actors. She throws herself into scenes to point of terrifying the director + crew who are part of the world she is creating. People had to look away, even on set.
  • EGW: Thank you for such high praises for Ms. Green! We couldn't be any prouder of her! We r very much looking forward to Possession! We did hear the very same thing from cast and crew of episode 2 (Séance) and episode 5 (Closer Than Sisters)! Filming those (since we cannot spoil!) scenes must have been surreal and it must have been a delight for you as a director! Editing the episodes must have been enjoyable! :)
  • JH: Yes. And wait til you see Josh, Harry, Danny and Tim opposite her in this one.
  • EGW: Will you be livetweeting with us? It will be interesting to hear your thoughts on each scene as a director :)
  • JH: In which time zone??
  • EGW: Original US Showtime airing? 10PM ET, Sunday. Or will you be doing one a week later (UK airing Sky Atlantic airing)? It's usually @reevecarney who tweets with us during US. It would be awesome if you could too. Your POV will be interesting!
  • JH: That would require me to be awake at 3am...well...just maybe. Let's see what @SHO_Penny thinks... @reevecarney Not sure you will have breath to tweet with during this episode...
  • EGW: Ha! You are great in making the fans worry with this tweet, sir. Some are already ordering oxygen tanks based on he previews alone!
