Personal Quote:

Ireland has been a truly inspirational place to film Penny Dreadful (2014). Not only does it have deeply talented crews, but the city's unspoiled architecture perfectly captures London at the turn of the last century. Also, the ghosts of Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde walk these streets, which is pretty inspirational for us too.

Trivia:

A huge fan of Citizen Kane (1941) and Orson Welles, Logan lobbied hard for the job of writing RKO 281 (1999), doing 6-months' worth of research before meeting with Ridley Scott to ask for the job. See more »
