One of the characters that many people, including myself, are most excited to see in The Nevers is Bonfire, and actress Rochelle Neil recently teased fans with two short video clips of her practicing fire breathing. Fire breathing, presumably, for her role in The Nevers. Well, if her intention was to get the fans excited, she succeeded!
The cast and crew have been laying low since wrapping episode one early last month. But with the next block of filming set to get underway in a few weeks time, those who need to be prepping for the journey ahead have been doing just that.
For those of you who haven't read the sumptuous character bios for the major players in The Nevers, you can read them here. But for the purposes of this particular blog post, all you need to know is that Rochelle plays Annie Carbey, aka Bonfire, and she's getting ready to set the world - and our tv screens ablaze! That's right; Annie has the ability to control fire.
If these clips are indeed of her practicing for her role in the series, then I have even more faith in Joss & Co. to deliver the best product possible. Nowadays, it's far too easy to rely solely on VFX to do the heavy lifting. It's nice to see that they'll be utilizing old-school, practical effects when possible. In my opinion, the best practice is one that balances both the practical and CGI/visual effects.
Enjoy the snippets of Rochelle practicing her fire breathing techniques below and keep checking back for more updates!
