The Sandman Stars Speak

In The Sandman, the titular cosmic being, sometimes known as Morpheus, is forced to cross realms to reclaim his dream-weaving tools after escaping a century-long imprisonment by a cruel magic user. His journeys see him travel to hell, to modern day London and beyond, and in the process, he meets a host of characters; from Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer to Jenna Coleman’s genderbent take on DC’s most iconic exorcist, Johanna Constantine.

Not only that, but he’s also tasked with gathering his rogue nightmares – in particular, The Corinthian (Boyd Holbrook), a human-like entity with murderous tendencies – and also restoring the balance, since he was unable to monitor the nap of people for the last 100 years.

Due to the expansive nature of the Netflix adaptation, which is based on Neil Gaiman’s beloved comic book series, several of the actors never met until promoting it at San Diego Comic-Con in July. More recently, three of them – Christie, Coleman and Kirby Howell-Baptiste, who plays Morpheus’ sister Death – sat down with Total Film to talk about shooting their scenes separately, the “extraordinary” settings of the fantasy, the challenges of learning Latin while learning French, and more. Here are our questions and answers, edited for length and clarity.

TF: You three are only in a couple of episodes each; Kirby, you’re in one. I was wondering, when you got the scripts, did you just get your scenes? Did you get everything? And have you seen the whole show now, and what was it like watching it when you hadn’t had access to much?
