With his easy charm, swept-back hair and a deathly pallor about his gaunt face, Matthew Goode is about to become the sexiest vampire to grace the screen since Robert Pattinson’s saturnine Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga.

He plays Matthew Clairmont, an enigmatic professor with a taste for blood, in a major new TV adaptation of the bestselling novel A Discovery Of Witches – the first book in American scholar Deborah Harkness’s All Souls trilogy.

But if you think you’re in for another generic slice of crucifixes and stakes through the heart, think again, says Matthew.

An extract from Josh Trebuchon’s article in ‘Technique’

Perhaps the least likable character in the series is the one most masterfully acted. The character of Phillip Durrant, a former war pilot who is paralyzed from the waist down by a car accident, is the Argyll family’s resident provocateur. Portrayed by Matthew Goode (“The Imitation Game”), he airs out each character’s doubts about who has committed the crime with detachment and brutal honesty, as though he approaches the consequential issue as a mere intellectual exercise.

In the hands of a lesser actor, Durrant would come across as a villain, but Goode’s performance highlights the character’s brokenness and demonstrates that his cruelty is simply a method by which he copes with his
own disability.
