New ‘Being Human’ prologue released – video

Catch the first glimpse of the show's new vampire Hal on NME.COM

A new prologue to the new series of Being Human has been released online.

BBC Three’s hit supernatural drama returns soon, but with big changes afoot since stars Aidan Turner, Russell Tovey and Sinead Keenan have all decided to leave.

The new series will see Lenora Crichlow‘s ghostly Annie take centre stage, joined by Michael Socha as werewolf Tom, who has been promoted to a regular cast member, and a new vampire character Hal, played by Damien Moloney.

And now, fans can get their first glimpse of Hal in a new prologue video which has been made available on BBC.co.uk/BeingHuman. Set in 1955, Hal taunts a werewolf called Leo, who is chained up to be used in ‘dogfights’. But as the two men open up about their insecurities, they look like forming an unlikely alliance.

Creator Toby Whithouse said of Moloney: “Hand on heart, I think he is one of the most exciting and versatile actors of his generation. Watching his performance grow over the filming was a joy.”
