Interview: From Blood Red Sky, Dominic Purcell and Peri Baumeister Talk Vampires, Filming Action Scenes and Working with Young Actors
In the new Netflix film from director/co-writer Peter Thorwarth, Blood Red Sky, two things become eminently clear early on: there are hijackers onboard a redeye flight from Germany to America; and there’s a vampire, Nadja (Peri Baumeister), amongst the passengers, and the only things keeping her from feasting on those around her are a mysterious drug she injects herself with periodically, the fact that this is a night flight, and the presence of her young son (Carl Anton Koch), who looks out for her on the journey. When the hijackers threaten all three of the elements that are keeping her hunger in check as they take over the plane in swift, military fashion and have it turn around back to Germany, Nadja is forced to take action and unleash the dark side of herself that she’s fought long and hard to hide.
Following Controversy Rumors, Producer Clarifies Why Dominic Purcell Is Breaking From The Arrow-Verse
Legends of Tomorrow Season 6 has finally arrived, and Arrow-Verse fans are likely happy to have the eclectic group of superheroes back on their screens after such a lengthy hiatus.
