Snowpiercer, like the movie it’s based on, is inspired by the graphic novels by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette.
The TV series has had a long journey to the small screen; as Variety reports, the show was first put into development in 2015, ordered to pilot in 2016 and ordered to series in 2018.
Snowpiercer is set seven years after ‘The Freeze’, an event that turns the world into a frozen wasteland, and is based around a 1,001 car, constantly moving train that circles the globe containing what’s left of humanity, divided into compartments divided by class.
Shimmery: Actress and singer Lena Hall, 39, plays a character in charge of the train’s cabaret and stood out from the crowd in a shiny silver outfit and white lace-up boots
Stylish: Mickey Sumner, 35, is one of those charged with maintaining order on the train and looked lovely in a blue and black long-sleeve dress and gray and gold heels
Exotic: Sheila Vand, 34, who works in the Night Car, opted for an eye-catching ensemble of patterned shirt knotted under the bust and flared and flounced scarlet red trousers
Connelly plays the train’s head of hospitality Melanie Cavill.
‘She is quite literally the voice of the train, makes the daily announcements and is there to make sure things running smoothly and order is maintained,’ the Oscar-winning actress explained at NY Comic Con, per Comicsbeat.com.
‘She’s also someone who is carrying some secrets that are divulged throughout the course of the season. We get to learn that things are more complicated than they may seem at first,’ she added.
She was joined at the event by her fellow castmembers Lena Hall, Mickey Sumner, Sheila Vand, Daveed Diggs, Steve Ogg and Alison Wright.
