Tom Hiddleston and Claire Danes star in a new TV series adaptation of the best-selling 2016 Sarah Perry novel, The Essex Serpent. While a few modifications have been made to turn the book’s plot into a series, the characters themselves have been directly imported from Perry’s pages. And, according to Hiddleston, because the novel did such a great job of fleshing out its characters, that made his job much easier. (Click on the media bar below to hear Tom Hiddleston)
