In an interview with the Toronto Sun, he adds that Dark Shadows is "pretty good. The guy I play is pre-batbite and then a bat comes and bites his neck and then he's a vampire and he's locked away for a couple hundred years, then blah blah blah. I didn't know much about Dark Shadows. And I had certainly not watched any of it. But the more I'm learning all the time the weirder and more interesting I think the film could be."
Meanwhile, IMDB has reported some additional behind the scenes appointments for the movie. Elizabeth Yianni-Georgiou is Dark Shadows key makeup artist. Her credits include Band of Brothers, Atonement and The Social Network. Louise Egan is the production's set costumer. Her other work includes About a Boy and Casualty 1909.
