Miranda Richardson (Rita Skeeter) and David Tennant (Barty Crouch Jr.) attended Amazon’s London TV Showcase in London, UK today.
Today, October 02, actress Miranda Richardson, best known as Rita Skeeter to us Potterheads, and her co-star David Tennant (Barty Crouch Jr.) attended Amazon’s London TV Showcase in London to promote their latest project, Amazon Prime Video show Good Omens.
Neil Gaiman, author of the book, announced earlier this year he’d be teaming up with the BBC to bring the book to TV.
“Almost 30 years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated by angels and demons, not to mention an 11-year-old Antichrist,” Gaiman commented.”It became many people’s favourite book. Three decades later, it’s going to make it to the screen. I can’t think of anyone we’d rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry were alive to see it.”
Joining Miranda and David in the cast are Michael Sheen, Sam Taylor Buck, Daniel May, Jon Hamm and Sian Brooke. The show is directed by Douglas Mackinnon.
