Zachary Quinto will be making a return to television alongside Ashleigh Cummings in the new AMC horror series ‘NOS4A2’…
AMC will be jumping into another horror series with the launch of ‘NOS4A2’ based on the book of the same name from author Joe Hill and now the two main stars for the show have been cast.
Zachary Quinto — best known for his TV roles in ‘Heroes’ and ‘American Horror Story’ — and Ashleigh Cummings will star as hero and villain in the 10-episode series that is expected to air on AMC in 2019.
‘NOS4A2’ (sounds like ‘Nosferatu’) is an inventive take on the vampire genre with Cummings playing the heroine in the story while Quinto will play a charismatic serial killer who feeds on the soul of children.
“Quinto will play Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England (Cummings) discovers she has a dangerous gift.
Cummings will play Vic McQueen, a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.”

Secret's out! (And I'm a week behind with technology as per usual because I was floating around in North American volcanic wilderness… sorrrryyy ????????) I'm so, so insanely privileged to have had a chance to step into the "sluttypants" belonging to young Cheryl West. Thank you to the disgustingly talented and wildly wonderful cast and crew behind 'Westside'! That set is so unique and special because of every individual member who contributes beyond the confines of their jobs with such passion and kinship. I also know that much of this energy is radiated from the legendary 'Outrageous Fortune', and I am so grateful to be a part of this family. Thank you for welcoming me into it, and though I will never be the same version of (the ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!! Genuinely obsessed with and so empowered by this woman…) Robyn Malcolm's "Cheryl", I did my best to honour her in the time that I had whilst serving the story during Rita's reign! Hope you enjoy tonight's shenanigans… we promise lots of Lycra, some bristling oestrogen and, most importantly… pie. Of the fish variety. 8:30pm on @threenewzealand
‘NOS4A2’ went into production this week with filming for the series taking place in Rhode Island.
The 10 episode series will then debut on AMC in 2019.
