‘Black Death’ stars a British ensemble cast led by Sean Bean and directed by Christopher ‘Severance’ Smith. HeyUGuys caught up with a familiar face to British film and TV, who stars in ‘Black Death’, Mr. Andy ‘Dead Set/Severance’ Nyman.
Andy kindly afforded us an interview at his home in what has to be one of the coolest ‘study rooms’ this side of LucasFilm. The lair was peppered with ephemera from cinema, magic and circus shows, Las Vegas trips and his own back catalouge of weird and wonderful books on every facet of the movies, including a very groovy textbook by Tom Savini. The finishing touch was that this veritable grotto is all behind a ‘door sized’ false book shelf.
This was the perfect environment to pick Andy’s brain on ‘Black Death’, his character, the other roles that have made him a well known face in British TV and cinema as well as how his theatre production ‘Ghost Stories’ (co-created with Jeremy ‘League of Gentlemen’ Dyson) might actually be the scariest thing since the TV screen/scream scene in ‘the Ring’.
