A Discovery of Witches star Teresa Palmer has said her newborn baby made it harder than ever to put together the ‘gorgeous’ period costumes for the show.
The fantasy series returns in January and sees the action transported from modern day Oxford to Elizabethan London, with both vampire Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode) and Teresa’s character Diana Bishop wearing snazzy age-appropriate outfits.
Teresa gave birth to a daughter, Poet, in between filming season one and two. She revealed how the logistics of wearing the costumes for the new season were a challenge after Poet was born, proving a series of unforeseen ‘complications’ when it came to preparing costumes.
Describing the costumes as ‘gorgeous’, Teresa said that Poet has taken a shine to some of the outfits – even ripping a few.
‘My baby is just not a fan of being gentle at all, with any of the collars or the beads – she just rips at everything. So, it’s been complicated at times,’ she said.
Teresa, who is married to actor Mark Webber, is also currently breastfeeding, and so has to have front opening corsets while filming the show.
New look pictures were recently released for A Discovery of Witches, giving fans a taste of what fans can expect from season two.
The end of the first season saw Diana and Matthew travel through time to escape the shadowy Congregation, with the second chapter seeing the pair hunting to find a powerful witch teacher to help her harness her magic.
They encounter all sorts of figures from the 16th century on the show, including Kit Marlowe, an English playwright, poet and translator, played by Tom Hughes.
Steven Cree (Outlander), Sheila Hancock (Doctor Who), James Purefoy (Altered Carbon), and Paul Rhys (Vincent and Theo) also star in the new series.
A Discovery Of Witches season two will premiere on Sky One and NOW TV on January 8.
