THE STRAIN: Actor David Bradley on Season 2 – Exclusive Interview

It’s perfectly appropriate – this is a party thrown by Fox and FX for the Television Critics Association press tour at West Hollywood’s Soho House and there’s music blaring – but whether one is most familiar with Bradley from his STRAIN role as determined and lethal vampire hunter Abraham Setrakian, the vile Walder Frey from GAME OF THRONES, actor William Hartnell aka the First Doctor Who from AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE […]Read On »

However, we’re talking about a hero-turned-assassin in THE WINTER SOLDIER, which is more than justification for Henry Jackman to come up […]Read On »
