Black Sails: Red Carpet Scoop, Interviews & More!

at . Comments

Last week, the new epic pirate drama Black Sails premiered on Starz.

It brought in big numbers and became the most widely watched series premiere in the pay cabler's original programming history.

More than 2.6 million overall viewers tuned in throughout opening weekend, with that number rising to an estimated 3.5 million when factoring in on-demand, online platforms and affiliate linear airings, per a Starz press release.

TV Fanatic chatted with the cast members of Black Sails - which was given an early Season 2 renewal last summer - at New York Comic Con and found out more about each of their characters and the challenges in shooting the pirate drama.

In the following videos, we talk with Toby Stephens (Capt. Flint), co-creator Jon Steinberg, Hannah New (Eleanor), Jessica Parker Kennedy (Max), Luke Arnold (John Silver) and Zach McGowan (Capt. Vane).

Black Sails airs Saturdays at 9/8c p.m. on Starz.

Black Sails Quotes

Silver: Billy told me I should worry...that you will be Madi’s end. That’s all he wanted in exchange for Max. For me to sit still while he warned me that your commitment to the greatest possible victory in this war of ours...would consume her and eventually lead to her death.
Flint: That’s a smart thing for him to say, if his intent is to split us apart. I suppose we should’ve expected nothing less. Do I need to be concerned that you took nearly two hours to tell me about it?
Silver: We are at our least rational...when we’re at our most vulnerable. If nothing else, this is a good reminder that, without a doubt, she is the point at which I’m at my most vulnerable.

I have one regret. I regret ever coming to this place with the assumption that a reconciliation could be found. That reason, could be a bridge between us. Everyone is a monster to someone. Since you are so convinced that I am yours, I will be it.
