Our First Look at Michael Sheen, David Tennant in ‘Good Omens’
Filming has begun on Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming six-part series, Good Omens, as revealed by Showrunner Neil Gaiman on Twitter with a photo of actors Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex, Passengers) and David Tennant (Broadchurch, Doctor Who) on the set as Aziraphale and Crowley respectively. You can look at the full picture below.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens will be filming for the next six months in London, Oxfordshire, and locations in South Africa. Equal parts humor and horror, fantasy and drama, the series is written by Neil Gaiman (American Gods) who is also serving as Showrunner.
“People have fallen in love with an angel and a demon in a book by Terry Pratchett and me,” Gaiman says, “and they have been excited and nervous to see how they would appear on screen – and I was probably the most nervous and excited of all. This is a first look. Michael Sheen is the best and finest of bookseller angels, David Tennant the coolest and most delightful of demons. Together they are one hell of a double act (or do I mean one made in Heaven?)”
Also joining the cast are Adria Arjona (Anathema Device), Nina Sosanya (Sister Mary Loquacious), Jack Whitehall (Newt), Michael McKean (Shadwell), Miranda Richardson (Madame Tracy), Ned Dennehy (Hastur) and Ariyon Bakare (Ligur).
Good Omens will launch globally in 2019 on Prime Video before airing on BBC Two at a later date.
