Jay Licurgo, who plays Nathan in the upcoming Netflix series, finds himself questioned only by witch Celia (Karen Connell) in a new clip from the show. Difference.
Based on Sally Greene’s Half Bad YA series, Licurgo follows the teenage son of Marcus, an outlaw who is thought to be the world’s most dangerous witch.
At the beginning of the series, the wizarding community fears that Nathan will take after his father, so he is constantly monitored. In the tension above, a witch named Celia questions him about how he sleeps at night, has violent dreams, is quick to anger, and feels negative towards other witches – at which point she notices. A cut on Nathan’s hand appears to be bleeding.
There are clear boundaries between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ in Celia’s world, but as the series progresses, it allows Nathan – along with his friends Annalize and Gabrielle – to discover himself.
Joe Barton (“The Lazarus Project”) wrote the series based on Greene’s books. Lycurgo (“The Batman”) leads the cast with Nadia Parks (“Domina”) as Annalize and Emeline Vekemans (“Transfers”) as Gabrielle.
“The Bastard Son and the Devil Himself” is produced by Adrian Sturges and Steve Clarke-Hall, and Barton exec stars with Andy Serkis, Jonathan Cavendish, Will Tennant, Phil Robertson and Colm McCarthy. McCarthy directed the first four episodes with Rachna Suri (“Mr. Whippy”) and Debs Patterson (“Willow”).
