From Vertical Entertainment, The Affair, starring Carice van Houten, Hanna Alström, and Claes Bang, is now available in select theaters and on VOD services. This period piece hearkens back to classical World War II dramas, with powerful performances from its cast, and is definitely worth your time. It's admittedly outside of the Daily Dead wheelhouse, but with Claes Bang's version of Dracula being one of my favorite performances of the infamous vampire ever, I reached out to see if he'd be up for talking about both Dracula and The Affair. Thankfully, he was very excited to discuss both roles in our video interview you can check out below!

The Affair Synopsis: "In 1930s Czechoslovakia, newlyweds Viktor and Liesel Landauer are filled with optimism and happiness in their new home. But all too soon, extramarital temptations bring out their darkest secrets and desires. As Liesel turns to her sensual friend Hana for the passion she lacks in her marriage, Nazi troops enter the country, threatening the Landauer's lives and the burning desire between the two women."
