Jonny Lee Miller Talks Neil Jordan’s Byzantium


Making the press rounds for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, Jonny Lee Miller (Dexter) talked with The Hollywood Reporter about another vampire film he’s going to appear in (let’s not forget he also co-starred in Dracula 2000): Byzantium.

Directed by Neil Jordan the film stars Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton Eleanor and Clara, two mysterious and penniless young women, flee the scene of a violent crime and arrive in a run-down coastal resort. They try to find money and refuge along the tawdry seafront and in the dilapidated hotels.  Clara, ever-practical, sells her body. She soon meets shy and lonely Noel, who provides a roof over their heads in his seedy guesthouse, Byzantium. Clara, always looking towards the future, turns it into a ‘pop-up’ brothel.
