Tonight, AMC aired the season one finale of Mayfair Witches
. In the episode, Rowan (Alexandra Daddario) finally uncovers her role in the family prophecy as it comes to fruition.
Tongayi Chirisa, who plays Ciprien Grieve, was surprised about where his character ended up. “I think that's the great thing about the writing is that a lot of things that you thought were supposed to go one way don't,” he told SciFi Vision during a recent round table. “It just opens up a can of so many other endless opportunities and questions that need to be asked, because there's a lot that's under the rug that needs to be exposed. So yeah, it left me gobsmacked, for sure.”
Jack Huston, who plays Lasher, was also surprised, and loved the outcome. “It's very sort of apropos to Anne Rice and her legacy by that sort of season finale,” said the actor. “We were like, ‘Oh, now we're really getting to the Anne Rice.’ That lady had one hell of an imagination, and our writers did a phenomenal job, sort of taking that from the page to the screen. I just really, I can't commend them greater for it.”
