“Penny Dreadful” season two is off to a terrifying start with Vanessa finding herself haunted by witches who want her soul.
But it looks like Vanessa Ives (played by Eva Green) will not be the only one facing demons this season.
In a recent interview with USA Today , actor Josh Hartnett talked about his character Ethan Chandler.
Specifically, Hartnett explained that fans will get a deeper sense of not only who Ethan is as a person, but also the troubles he can no longer run from.
“This season we start to get to know a little bit about him.
What you see is nothing of what you get,” explained Hartnett.
Hartnett was unable to say much about what will happen to Ethan now that his werewolf side has gotten out of control.
He did mention however, that he can no longer run away from his demons – whether those demons are his own or Vanessa’s.
“You can’t outrun your demons and Ethan is gonna start facing the main one.
He would have loved to have fled but this is his special connection to Vanessa and he can’t leave her alone.
He can’t leave her alone in this mess,” Hartnett said.
The “Penny Dreadful” season two premiere focused mostly on Vanessa and the witches, but there was also a scene in which it would appear that the police are slowly making progress in discovering his murderous tendency.
If you need a little more evidence that things will be heating up for Ethan Chandler in the new season, Hartnett also mentioned in an earlier featurette that the werewolf inside is beginning to get out of control.
“He has more knowledge of what he is.
He knows he has this time to try and figure out a way to not kill a bunch of people he loves,” he expressed.
