Actor Marco Perretta will play Lord X, the main character of the new period-piece TV series developed by MVPStyln Productions: Stitching Vanity. The series will begin filming in 2022. Production will encompass the United States, Canada, and Europe.
Stitching Vanity is set in 19th-century London. Attributes and qualities unique to the Victorian era have been meticulously woven into the narrative.
Lord X is a dangerously charming aristocrat who has just moved into his manor on Xerretta Street. He is hell-bent on constructing the most beautiful vanity and appearance—from the flesh of others. Many dwellers in London become inextricably entangled in the web of wicked games he spins, and many more fall victim to his insatiable desire to achieve consummate beauty.
In an interview with journalist Perla Rico, Marco Perretta elaborates on how he is preparing to inhabit the role of Lord X.
“Lord X is an extremely complex, multi-faceted character,” says Marco Perretta. “To prepare for him, I, first and foremost, thoroughly read the script and parse his lines. Then, I examine what lies in between those lines. I find that, often, what’s unspoken can be just as telling and meaningful as what’s spoken. I dive deep into what Lord X could be thinking about, adopt his perspective, and explore his motivations. In doing so, I transmute his experiences into my own, and completely embody his character.”
Perretta, a widely influential, multi-faceted actor, hails from Toronto, Canada. Over the course of his career, he has nurtured his deep-seated passions for acting, singing, and dancing; received extensive professional training; and acted in a variety of theatre, film, and television productions.
Recognized for his versatile acting style and polished performances in both dramatic and comedic roles, Perretta has starred and been credited in Untold and The Santori Bloodline; appeared in Star Trek: Discovery; and graced the cover of The Hollywood Reporter. Moreover, Perretta was in attendance at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards in 2018.
“Each performance by actor Marco Perretta radiates expertise, gravitas, and discipline,” says the CEO of MVPStyln Productions. “We have unwavering faith in him to flesh out the intricacies of Lord X.”
