Starz’s new tv series, Dangerous Liaisons serves as a prelude to the book and origin story of Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont.

The series stars Alice Englert as Camille, Nicholas Denton as Pascal Valmontand, Lesley Manville as Marquise de Merteuil, Kosar Ali as Victoire, Carice van Houten as Jacqueline de Montrachet, Hilton Pelser as Gabriel Carrè, Fisayo Akinade as Chevalier de Saint-Jacques, Michael McElhatton as Jean de Merteuil, Nathanael Saleh as Azolan, Colette Dalal Tchantcho as Ondine de Valmont, Hakeem Kae-Kazim as Majordome, and Tom Wlaschiha as Henri de Montrachet.

I talked to Kosar Ali about her character being the voice of reason on the show, Victoire’s loyalty to Camille, what she would miss if she lived during that time period, and her favorite anime.

I talked to Colette Dalal Tchantcho about playing a person of color in a period piece, her favorite scene to shoot, how Glenn Close influenced her performance, the costumes, and how to heal a broken heart.

I talked to the creator Harriet Warner & EP Colin Callender about why they thought it was time to adapt Dangerous Liaison again, their favorite character, how they would react to living during those times, and not erasing people of color from period pieces.

Dangerous Liaisons premieres November 6th on Starz.
