Exclusive Video Interview With Mia Maestro On The Strain


The Strain may have just concluded its first season, but the fun continued last week during the New York Comic-Con Lunar Eclipse party. Fans of the hit series were invited to The Delancy Rooftop Garden Nightclub where some of the cast, including Mia Maestro, Natalie Brown, Jim Watson, Robert Maillet and Robin Atkin Downes, were in attendance.

Created by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, who also penned the trilogy that spawned the show, The Strain follows CDC workers Eph (Corey Stoll) and Nora (Maestro) as they battle the outbreak of a vampiric infection. Though it had its ups and downs, the first season of FX’s spooky series went over quite well with fans and critics alike, providing a ton of fun and thrills along the way.

During the Lunar Eclipse party, which included decor and cocktails inspired by the hit show, we had the chance to sit down with Maestro to talk about her introduction to Del Toro’s wild world, Nora’s personal turmoil and being an international actress.

Check out what she had to say in the video above and be sure to keep an eye out for The Strain‘s Blu-Ray/DVD release, as it hits store shelves on December 2nd.
