Cara Delevingne has inhabited several otherworldly universes in her day — the superhero-scape of Suicide Squad , the intergalactic slice of insanity that is Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets — but nothing quite like Carnival Row. Is it challenging to put yourself in that world? That is something we all are blessed with. You have to really know everything you possibly can to really be able to immerse yourself in a world. And in terms of the set, and the costume, and how detailed [it was], and all the actors, it was just so well realized.
In July , it was announced that Amazon had renewed Carnival Row for a second season. Carnival Row follows "mythical creatures who have fled their war-torn homeland and gathered in the city as tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing immigrant population. On January 9, , it was announced that Amazon had signed a development deal for the series which, at the time had Guillermo del Toro on board as a co-writer, executive producer, and director. The company ordered three scripts with the expectation that if the series went into production del Toro would direct the first episode. On May 10, , it was announced that the production had been given a series order with Beacham and Echeverria still executive producing, and with Echeverria expected to act as showrunner. It was also announced that filmmaker Paul McGuigan would be directing the series. By this point, del Toro had stepped away from the project, as his feature film schedule did not permit him to stay on as an executive producer as the project moved forward. On June 3, , it was announced that the series would premiere on August 30,
The show, which premiered on 30 August and immediately got renewed for a second season, features some interesting LGBT representation, with a particularly refreshing portrayal of bisexuality, which we rarely get to see onscreen. Carnival Row , which calls out racism and discrimination of all sorts, feels like a visually stunning, yet narratively lazy, only mildly enjoyable summer watch with too much on its plate. Set in a neo-Victorian society, the ambitious ten-episode series follows fairies and other mythical creatures forced to flee their homeland after the war. The Burgue is plagued with a string of unsolved murders occurring in its dodgy end, the Carnival Row that gives its name to the show. She, in fact, has an undeniable bond with her fae friend and former lover Tourmaline Karla Crome. The two meet again in The Burgue, where Tourmaline works as a prostitute.
Vignette Stonemoss is a Fae in the show Carnival Row. Vignette had as good of a childhood as one could ask for as a faerie. Growing up on a farm with her family, she had a mostly idyllic life. When she finished secondary school, she headed off to University in Tirnanoc, where she met her now lifelong friend Tourmaline. Mid-schooling, Vignette found out that The Pact was invading her homeland and went home to help her family only to find her home burned to the ground and her family dead. Seeing no option but to help those that she could, she became a smuggler, risking her own life to save as many faeries as she could by securing them safe passage out of war-torn Tirnanoc. A large group of faeries rush through the Pact occupied woods of Anoun , though many are shot down as the Pact are on their tales with Marroks at their command. The group of Fae are lead by Vignette Stonemoss, the last of the sparrowhawks.
