Back on episode four of The Nevers Podcast, we reported that costume designer Jane Petrie (The Crown, Black Mirror, Suffragette and The King) was brought on to design the clothing elements that would be worn by the actors in The Nevers. It turns out that she was brought on for one episode only.
We recently followed up with Jane to inquire about her status on The Nevers and she informed us that she "only did the pilot episode."
Since then, we've learned that six time Emmy Award winning costume designer Michele Clapton is now serving as the series costume designer.
Michele Clapton is perhaps best known for her eight-year tenure as costume designer for HBO's Game of Thrones.
As a fan of Michele Clapton's work, and with all due respect to Petrie, this hire comes as welcomed news.
When Game of Thrones concluded and it's executive producer Bernadette Caulfield was announced as an executive producer for The Nevers, I've been hoping to hear of Michele Clapton joining the series. The costumes that Michele and her team have created for GoT are some of the most awe-inspiring not to mention iconic designs ever made for television. There's even a Game of Thrones costume book dedicated solely to chronicling her costumes designs throughout the run of the series. Having her caliber of talent on The Nevers will only serve to heighten the quality of the series overall.
Clapton isn't the only Game of Thrones veteran to join The Nevers. Stunt coordinator Rowley Irlam, production designer Gemma Jackson and producer Duncan Muggoch have all joined Joss' brand new epic.
Some of Michele's other credits include The King's Man, The Crown and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
Update: The Nevers actress confirms Clapton's hire:
