Drama Graduate to star in upcoming US TV Series ‘American Gods’

Kent drama graduate Bruce Langley is set to star alongside Gillian Anderson, Ricky Whittle and Emily Browning in US TV Series American Gods.

American Gods is an upcoming television series created by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green based on the novel of the same name by author Neil Gaiman. The series will focus on the mysterious Shadow, a man who is released from prison a few days early after serving a three-year sentence for bank robbery when his beloved wife Laura is killed in a car accident. Flying home for the funeral, Shadow is seated next to a man who introduces himself only as Mr. Wednesday, and this man knows more about Shadow’s life, both past and present, than is possible. Shadow comes to learn that Wednesday is, in fact, the god Odin of Norse mythology and that all of the gods that mankind has ever believed in are alive in human form and live among regular people.
