FX's 'The Strain': First Look at Cast Photos to Be Revealed at SXSW
"The Strain" — FX's thriller about a mysterious outbreak of an ancient strain of vampirism — is launching some viral marketing, quite appropriately.
Yahoo TV has the exclusive first look at new cast photos for "The Strain," featuring stars Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, and David Bradley, that will be seen in a unique show-sponsored installation at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin. Take a look:
The Strain on FX: Corey Stoll stars as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather.
The Strain on FX: Mia Maestro stars as Dr. Nora Martinez.
The Strain on FX: Sean Astin stars as Jim Kent.
The Strain on FX: David Bradley stars as Professor Abraham Setrakian.
SXSW is known for being a non-stop event for attendees; FX is hoping to cure that particular strain of SXSW madness with The Strain Transformation Station, a place to power nap for 20 minutes in custom-built Rejuvenation Pods. The pods will be equipped with tablets showcasing exclusive content from the new FX original series, including the photos above and more.
