We had the opportunity to speak with actor Doug Jones at the 37th annual Saturn Awards. A mainstay in director Guillermo del Toro’s films, Jones is best known for his work playing non-human characters, usually in heavy makeup. He took on, with great success, the character of Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films and was poisitively terrifying as the Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth. During the interview, he spoke a bit about a third Hellboy film, his relationship with del Toro, and more.
