Video: Childhood's End Cast Previews Syfy Adaptation, Aliens' Secret Look

Members of the Childhood’s End cast have seen Game of Thrones vet Charles Dance on set — they just haven’t seen him.

On Syfy’s six-hour adaptation of the Arthur C. Clarke novel, Game of Thrones‘ erstwhile Tywin Lannister plays Karellen, the ambassador for an alien race that has peacefully invaded Earth. Yet after three hours’ worth of make-up effects — the end result which thus far has been kept under wraps — Dance is “completely unrecognizable,” Yael Stone (Orange Is the New Black) avows in the featurette above.

Also in the exclusive video: Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) previews his role as a “conduit” between humankind and the alien Overlords, while Daisy Betts (Last Resort) raises the big question coming out of the ETs’ establishment of a Utopia on Earth: “What do they want in return?”

Airing Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 14, 15 and 16, from 8 to 10 pm, Childhood’s End also stars Mike Vogel (Under the Dome) and Colm Meaney (Star Trek: The Next Generation). Watch the featurette and tell us if you’ll be tuning in.

    No spoilers. Having read the book many decades ago, I hope that they do not change Karellan’s form. How much of what they will change will be interesting to watch.

    Lo cierto es no cuenta conun punto de vista serio y se percibe medio incoherente.
