Summary of new information from this month’s SFX magazine
Emmett’s character Simon died of a heroin overdose and coming back to life has given him a new purpose in life. He’s got a new sense of pride and his new identity makes him believe in something greater than himself.
He has spurned the cover-up make-up and encouraged his lover Amy (Emily Bevan) to do the same. They met when she left Roarton and she returns with him. He’s had a big effect on her.
Simon has a different look on humanity because he was one of the first few of the undead to be captured and experimented on. Emmett wears a piece on his back that is covered in scars with skin stapled together. Those scars affect how he sees the world and interacts with others.*
* I’ve seen pictures of Emmett’s make-up on his spine and it took hours in the make up chair and is very gruesome but amazing to look at, especially where the spine hasn’t been stapled together well! It looks pretty horrific if that is the result of him being experimented on.
