The Magicians cast and creative team talk at New York Comic-Con
Check out this interview with the cast, Arjun Gupta, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Jason Ralph, Summer Bishil, and creative team, Sera Gamble and John McNamara, of The Magicians during their time at New York Comic-Con as they talk about bringing Lev Grossman‘s urban fantasy books to life on the Syfy channel.
Everyone involved made mention of being fans of the books, of Lev Grossman’s participation of the process and of the attention to detail that has gone into creating the world of The Magicians (including a finger tutting-influenced system of intricate hand movements fans of the book will remember as being critical to the use of magic in this world).
About the series:
