Casting News: Damien Molony joins Eddie Izzard in HBO’s ‘The Devil You Know’


Father and Son: Eddie Izzard and Damien Molony in new TV drama

Exciting news, Damien has landed a new TV role in HBO drama Pilot The Devil You Know.

He will be appearing alongside a stellar cast headed up by Eddie Izzard, Nadia Alexander and Ismenia Mendes and including Ever Carradine, Julian Rhind Tutt, Matthew James Thomas, Nigel Lindsay, Ewen Bremner, Karen Gillan, Hannah Nordberg, Naian Gonzalez Norvind and Zawe Ashton.

According to the new TV show is a ‘provocative period drama’ exploring a compelling period of American history and set in 17th Century New England.

The story explores the historical and religious context and effects of the Salem Witch Trials on Salem village, focussing on the Putnam family, with Izzard playing the conservative Father Thomas and Damien playing his eldest son, Robert Putnam.

The drama is currently filming in Boston USA, perfect timing for our favourite actor who is on a hiatus during a four-month run of The Hard Problem at the National Theatre.

Damien is no stranger to period drama and portraying characters from another time, having previously played over 500-year-old vampire Hal Yorke in Being Human and Irish Detective Constable Albert Flight in 19th century London in Ripper Street.

Congratulations to Damien on his new role, we’re thrilled and cannot wait to see him resplendent in 17th century costume, with American accent, in what sounds like a compelling drama!

The Devil You Know is created and co-written by Jenji Kohan, Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller, directed by Gus Van Sant and co-produced by HBO and Lionsgate TV.
