The lowdown: Jessica Barden opens up about her role in third season of Penny Dreadful

Season Three of the supernatural series will air on Sky Atlantic in 2016.

Attending the red carpet premiere for her film The Lobster last night at the BFI London Film Festival, British actress Jessica Barden gave DIY the lowdown on her latest role in the third season of the hit supernatural series, Penny Dreadful.

“I’m filming Penny Dreadful at the moment. It’s a lot of fun and I love Dublin.” Having to be somewhat secretive about her role, the amiable Barden did reveal a little of what we can expect from her in the Victorian-era series: “I play an acolyte to Dorian (Reeve Carney) and Lily (Billie Piper) and that’s all I can say. Reeve is adorable. I love him, I was sat in park with him and we went out for tea and he was like: “Hey, where do you think salad leaves come from?” and I was like that is just adorable! [laughs] I love him. I love everybody on that show, I’m having the best time.”

Season Three of Penny Dreadful will air on Sky Atlantic in 2016.
