The Prague Reporter interviewed Prague born British actress Anna Rust who’ll be playing Fleury in Andrew’s upcoming series Carnival Row.

What can audiences expect to see in Carnival Row?

A great story, brilliant cast and an absolute and utter visual delight. It’s set in a fictional neo-Victorian fantasy world, in which humans and mythical creatures live alike, and follows the investigation of the murder of a fairy showgirl on Carnival Row. It has a somewhat film-noir feel to it. There’s nothing quite like this show.

Can you tell me anything about your character, Fleury?

Fleury is a mischievous fairy living on Carnival Row. You’ll have to wait till 2019 to find out more!

Carnival Row is set in a fantasy world full of mythical creatures; how much of that did you get to experience on set through practical effects & set design?

The majority of filming took place in a studio, which meant most of the sets were built uniquely for the show. The set designers added so much detail to every part of the world – just stepping onto those sets was magical.

Carnival Row shot for six months in Prague. What kept the cast & crew busy when not filming?

A lot of us weren’t permanently in Prague so we shuttled between the U.K. and Prague whenever needed, but when we had downtime, we did lots of lovely dinners, get-togethers, drinks… As we soon realised, Prague has no shortage of great places to go out!
