It’s no secret we’re really big fans of Penny Dreadful’s Eva Green, but if you’re still on the fence this new sneak peek clip from the season 3 premiere might just convince you to come down on our side.

Watch as the preternaturally cautious Vanessa Ives (Green) takes a tour of a zoological museum (Dublin’s ‘Dead Zoo’) with Dr. Alexander Sweet, director of Zoological studies (Christian Camargo).

The lonely and troubled Vanessa listens with a mixture of interest and wariness as Dr. Sweet talks scorpions – a creature close to Vanessa’s heart.

Will Sweet prove to be a friend to Vanessa? Following the events of season’s 2 finale which saw those closest to her pulled away by circumstance, Vanessa could surely use a friend right now.

How do you play a character carefully holding back a torrent of turbulent emotions? Watch the clip to see Eva Green at her understated but no less intense self.

Penny Dreadful returns to Showtime on Sunday May 1 Sunday, May 1 at 10 PM EST.

In addition to our fan favourite cast members, this season will see the return of Patti LuPone (American Horror Story), who guest starred last season as the Cut-Wife. LuPone, returns as a series regular in the new role of Dr. Seward, an American therapist who treats Vanessa (Eva Green) with an unconventional new approach.

Wes Studi (Hell On Wheels) joins as a series regular as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett) who also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton).

The third season also adds Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll (Shazad Latif).
