Tonight's the night! The Nevers premieres on HBO at 9pm, and Tom Riley fans can enjoy seeing him as sweet, awkward Augustus Bidlow. We know from Tom's interview yesterday, that Augie is actually one of the Touched, and the official HBO page for The Nevers now has a character page for Augie.
Augustus “Augie” Bidlow Sweet and awkward Augie is a keen ornithologist who is more than happy to let his older sister Lavinia take the reins of the family fortune.
August, 1896. Victorian London is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event which gives certain people — mostly women — abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. But no matter their particular “turns,” all who belong to this new underclass are in grave danger. It falls to mysterious, quick-fisted widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to protect and shelter these gifted “orphans.” To do so, they will have to face the brutal forces determined to annihilate their kind.
Far Far Away shared more promotional images for The Nevers, including this one of Tom Riley as Augustus Bidlow, described in interviews as weird and eccentric, but is actually quite 'nice' on screen.
The Nevers begins broadcast around the world in most countries from tomorrow, and in UK from 17th May.
