First Being Human 5 TV appearance And Exclusive new Clip | E4 Sunday 16 December 2012
A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost
Damien made his first TV appearance promoting Being Human series 5 alongside co-stars Michael Socha and Kate Bracken on T4 (on uk TV channel E4) Sunday.
Having already been gifted short glimpses of the next series of our fave supernatural show last week on a BBC3 promo adv, T4 treated us to a funny interview with the cast and aired the first full exclusive clip to be shown on TV!.
The interview began with Damien answering the question, “what’s it all about?”
Being Human is basically 3 best mates living together in a house in Barry island… and they just happen to be a vampire, werewolf and a ghost.”
His words reminding us that beneath the exciting supernatural shenanigans, action saturated epicness, stunning plots, deep, wide storylines and multidimensional characterizations that happen in and around Honolulu Heights, at the heart of Being Human lies the very simple and beautiful foundation of a relationship between 3 friends, united by their differences from the world, and negotiating the dynamics of the differences between themselves. And perhaps it is exactly this domestic intimacy that is most engaging and entertaining and leads us to invest so much with these special characters.
Damien also gave the perfect intro to the new footage aired, where we are treated to a first look at the 3 main characters at their hilarious best. In the new clip we see an unkempt, beardy Hal, still tied to the chair where we left him at the end of the last series, being spoon fed mashed banana by Tom and surrounded by ever growing piles of mess at Honolulu Heights. His OCD nature is clearly tortured by this state of untidiness and uncleanliness, his pompous sensibititles highly offended. (Though we can’t help but imagine his cleaning nirvana when finally released!).
I implore you put a screen in front of me, give me a blind fold, noone should have to look at this.”
What else did we find out? Oh yes….that Damien hates bananas, and leaves behind a very nice smell. Apparently making him more like a ghost than a vampire.
Watch a Lo-fi version of the full interview and exclusive footage below.
We feel a trailer and release date coming on!
Come along and discuss this interview and new footage with other fans at the Damien Molony Forum!
Being Human returns to our screens early 2013.
