Interviewed by Daryl Austin of Newsweek for an article published to the website today, James McAvoy talked of The Sandman, Neil Gaiman’s dark magic, Dirk Maggs’s magistral sound design and the unexpected casting choice that was our Miss Dennings.
And while Morpheus doesn’t always get along with the other members of The Endless, McAvoy explained that Dream and Death are particularly close. “They get along very, very well,” he said. Death is played by Dennings, someone McAvoy said was unexpected in the role. “When you think of Death, you don’t think of Kat with her brilliant throwaway delivery,” he explained, “but she nailed it and once you hear her, you know how perfect for the part she is.” He said Dennings portraying Death is just another example of the brilliantly unexpected world Gaiman and Maggs created for the audio adaptation of the series.
