Jack Huston Joins Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches as Lasher



Jack Huston has been cast as Lasher, a series regular and key character, in AMC’s upcoming Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches. He joins previously announced cast members Alexandra Daddario (The White Lotus), Harry Hamlin (Mad Men), and Tongayi Chirisa (Crusoe). The eight-episode series is currently in production in New Orleans and is scheduled for release later this year on the AMC+ streaming service.

Based on Rice’s Lives of the Mayfair Witches trilogy, the series follows the story of a young neurosurgeon, played by Daddario, who unexpectedly discovers that she is the heir to a family of witches. As she grapples with her newfound powers, she must contend with a sinister presence that has haunted her family for generations. As the wicked Lasher, Huston will play a shape-shifting entity that has been bound to the Mayfair witches for hundreds of years.

Mark Johnson (Better Call Saul), who remains committed to Rice’s legacy, oversees the development of her collection for streaming and television through AMC. Esta Spalding will be serving as Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches showrunner and is sharing writing and executive producer duties with her Masters of Sex colleague Michelle Ashford. Christopher Rice, the author’s son, will also serve as an executive producer. This is the second series in an AMC’s growing Anne Rice universe.

Huston most recently appeared in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-nominated House of Gucci as Domenico De Sole. He will also appear in Amazon Video’s upcoming series Expats alongside Nicole Kidman and Brian Tee.

AMC Acquires Rights to Anne Rice Titles

AMC

Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches isn’t the only one of her novels currently in development by AMC. The network is also working on an adaptation of Interview with the Vampire, the author’s debut novel.

Interview with the Vampire will star Sam Reid (The Astronaut Wives Club) as Lestat and Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones) as Louis, the story’s two central and clashing characters. Its first season will also consist of eight episodes, available on AMC and AMC+ later this year.

In 2020, AMC acquired Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles Series and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches Series. The rights to these 18 titles, including the popular Vampire Lestat and The Queen of the Damned, are now held by AMC Networks for television, streaming and partner distribution.

Christopher Rice will serve as executive producer on all AMC Anne Rice-related projects.

Anne Rice died on December 11, 2021, in Rancho Mirage, CA. She was 80.
