After announcing the season premiere date at WonderCon 2019, AMC teases how Zachary Quinto becomes Charlie Manx in the supernatural drama, NOS4A2, co-starring Ashleigh Cummings. Based on the bestselling novel by Joe Hill, the AMC drama will premiere with the fifth season of Fear The Walking Dead on the very same night.
Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings) is a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto). Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted place of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law.
Here are 5 reasons we love the behind-the-scenes video from NOS4A2:
AMC has released a behind-the-scenes video. The teaser reveals all the challenging makeup work that goes into the creepy villain. Watch how the makeup team turns star Zachary Quinto into Joe Hill’s infamous antagonist.
4) Zachary Quinto!
Notice how the Star Trek actor is very chill while sitting on the makeup chair. Quinto is very much like me, since I’m unable to let go of my cell. I swear I will use every bit of the phone’s battery till it shuts down!
3) That Face!
With Quinto’s actual face layered up, the makeup team adds the white wig and paints the wrinkles to add the texture. At the end of BTS video, Quinto takes a look at himself, feeling his neck.
And now we get a glimpse of Charlie Manx in full makeup and wardrobe. Notice how the makeup captures Quinto’s movement as his face makes an angry expression. Qujnto is such an amazing actor as he becomes and performs as his character.
1) The Supporting Cast!
The ensemble includes Ólafur Darri Ólafsson as Bing Partridge, Virginia Kull as Linda McQueen, Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Chris McQueen and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J) as Maggie Leigh.
