Starz just served up another character video for it’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. Laura Moon, played by Emily Browning, is Shadow’s wife. She was waiting for her husband to get out of jail so they could get their life back on track. Unfortunately, she ends up dead before his release date.
Through a twist of fate and a series of fortunate events, she returns to the land of the living. She sees her resurrection as a second chance, a way to make things right, especially with her husband Shadow. As he becomes embroiled in the war of the Old Gods and the new, she’ll be setting out on a journey of discovery of her.
Introducing Laura Moon: wife, friend, calls Shadow “puppy”, and recently deceased.
This adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s book tells the story of Shadow Moon, an ex-convict, who experiences a tragedy just as he’s being released. A mysterious encounter sets him off on a cross country road trip with Mr. Wednesday, a con man who knows a little too much about Shadow. Before he knows it Shadow’s embroiled in a battle between the Old Gods and the New ones that have emerged in America.
American Gods premieres Sunday, April 30 at 9/8c on Starz.
