Oliver Jackson-Cohen on Building His Own ‘Bly Manor’ Villain and Those ‘Hill House’ Comparisons

From ELLE

Spoilers for The Haunting of Bly Manor episode 7, “The Two Faces, Part Two,” below.

The Haunting of Bly Manor has no shortage of ghosts, apparitions and otherworldly villains, most of them working both as literal threats and metaphorical representations of guilt, grief, and denial. But the most memorable and complex of all the baddies haunting Bly Manor is Peter Quint, a suave Glaswegian valet who’s hiding a whole host of dark secrets behind his rakish smile.

After briefly appearing as a frightening specter haunting the manor, Quint is introduced in episode 3, “The Two Faces, Part One,” as a fantasy of an urbane 1980s man, shopping for tailored menswear and premium whiskey in west London to the sounds of Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love.” Even as the fantasy is undercut with the revelation that the luxury goods are for his boss, Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas), Peter still retains an air of effortless confidence. That easy surface charm belies a dark, singleminded determination to get ahead at all costs—and to escape his own past, no matter who he takes down in the process. That charm also enthralls Wingrave’s newly hired au pair, Rebecca Jessel (Tahirah Sharif), whose tumultuous affair with Quint ends up destroying her.

Jackson-Cohen speaks to ELLE.com about Quint’s toxic relationship with Rebecca, the machismo he wears as a mask, and how he compares to The Haunting of Hill House‘s Luke Crain.

Luke really goes through the wringer in The Haunting of Hill House—heroin addiction, deep grief, a near-death experience—so you had a lot of heavy stuff to play. When you were approached to return for Bly Manor, was it important to you that Peter Quint be a very different kind of character?

Garden centre given permission for new building

The plans have been approved by Powys County Council
The plans have been approved by Powys County Council

The Derwen Garden Centre on the outskirts of Guilsfield, has been given permission for a new building that can be used as a shopping display area, and for storage.

The garden centre is owned and run by the Joseph family, who also run the nearby Dingle nurseries at Frochas.

The area earmarked for the building is already used to display outdoor garden furniture and compost.

The new building will be 20.9 metres in length, 9.9 metres in width and a maximum height of 7.8 metres.

Agent Rebecca Richardson said: “Derwen Garden Centre would like to enhance the shopping experience and ensure that goods are secured by creating a new shed, which will allow the public to shop undercover.

“The building would link to the existing building via and undercover roof.

“The steel framed shed would have a basic private stair case to an open plan storage area above for the storage of goods not on display.”

Powys County Council planning officer Rhys Evans recommended giving the application conditional consent.

He said: “The existing site is already used for outdoor furniture display and the public have access to this space.

“The building is to provide coverage for these goods by allowing customers to shop undercover.

“It is therefore considered there is a satisfactory need for the building to provide additional coverage and the proposal would not have an adverse impact upon existing retail centres given the existing use of the site.”

When firefighters arrived, they found an active fire in the kitchen of a downstairs apartment—one of five units in the building, Syracuse Deputy Fire Chief Bob Cussen said.

Four children were in the apartment at the time, but all made it outside safely.

Around 15 people lived in the building, Cussen said. No injuries were reported.

The fire was largely contained to the one apartment, Cussen said, but the first and second floors both sustained smoke damage. Cussen said he believes the building had working smoke detectors at the time of the fire.

It took firefighters around 15 minutes to extinguish the flames.

The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation.
