Carmilla brings LGBT supernatural romance to NYCC 2017

The abnormally normal duo of Laura and Carmilla face old and new challenges in The Carmilla Movie

“We really get to see them in crisis mode, which is when people really reveal themselves…and where a lot of growth happens.”

Excited fans of the critically acclaimed web series Carmilla were treated on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at NYCC when stars Natasha Negovanlis and Elise Bauman sat down and spoke about their upcoming movie during a special panel.  Set five years after Laura (Bauman) and Carmilla (Negovanlis) vanquished the apocalypse, Carmilla is learning to adapt to life as a human.  They couple live in a cozy apartment in downtown Toronto while Laura hones her journalism skills. When Carmilla shows signs of “re-vamping” and Laura starts having bizarre, ghostly dreams, things fall apart. The couple must now enlist their old friends from Silas University to uncover the unknown supernatural threat and save humanity – including Carmilla’s.

We had a chance to sit down with Natasha and Elise to discuss the impact the web series has on promoting LGBT awareness.  They also reveal what we can expect from the hour-long The Carmilla Movie and where their characters stand today!  

Natasha spent a few minutes with us and revealed that shooting the movie involved

“So many locations.  Some of it’s outside and we get to see the characters outside. We get to see so much more action because the web series has Laura describing action off camera, so it was actually cool to see these characters live their lives.”

When Elise joined us, she said her character Laura has

“For the past five years, she’s really been going after her career in investigative journalism…and she and Carmilla have been living this very domestic life until Carmilla starts to show signs of re-vamping.”

Both actresses teased us that there will be old friends, new challenges, and whole lot of love!  So tell us, what are you hoping to see in the movie?  What are you most looking foward to?  Comment below!
