'The Sandman': Neil Gaiman on Casting Delirium in Season

Gaiman’s hit series ‘The Sandman’ was recently given a fresh order of episodes at Netflix.

Neil Gaiman loves to engage with lovers of his work, so it has been increasingly amusing to look him do so throughout the run of the first season of The Sandman on Netflix. Now that the display has been renewed for Season 2, lovers are questioning what is going to occur with characters from the graphic novel that we’ve got yet to meet on display. One of those characters is Delirium. Gaiman, who’s very famous on Tumblr, become requested “Have the castings commenced yet for the new Sandman season? (Just curious, no longer trying to drag a Mason)” that is nodding to Mason Alexander Park who famously threw themselves into the casting pool on social media and landed the role of Desire.

Gaiman replied by way of pronouncing “Not yet. We only were given formally nicely confirmed this week.” But it truly is not all, he gave fans a bit of interior data about casting and how throwing yourself in for a position cannot surely paintings in case you’re not really an actor. Which, as someone who changed into a overall performance theater essential and studied performing for years, I love to see. Not because fans cannot dream to see themselves in their preferred houses but as it is a lot of work past dressing up and questioning you already know the character and the way they paintings.

His investigate the casting method gave way to Gaiman pronouncing he turned into looking ahead to casting Delirium even though. Which, seeing how tremendous the casting for Season 1 of The Sandman changed into, I can most effective imagine how superb Season 2 goes to be with the characters we have yet to meet.

Gaiman did go on to talk about how saying “Oh I’m like this character” isn’t the casting pull that really works. The author wrote:

“(And as a reminder to everyone out there who wants to act, “I’m a lot like Delirium in real life” is not the hard-sell casting slam dunk many of you seem to think it is. If you’re going to be in Sandman you need to be an actor, you need to have credits, we need to know not only that you’re brilliant but that you’re also reliable, and that you know how to act for TV — can you do the same scene two dozen times, and still say the lines every time as if this is the first time you’ve ever said them? Can you be funny and break people’s hearts at the same time?)”
