'Tell Me A Story' star Luke Guldan on reimagining beloved fairy tales "as a dark and twisted psychological thriller"
Created by Kevin Williamson, the show reimagines classical fairy tales like 'Three Little Pigs' and 'Little Red Riding Hood' in a dark and twisted manner
If you're a fan of romantic-thrillers, then 'Tell Me A Story' should be your must-watch this season. Created by Kevin Williamson, the show reimagines classical fairy tales like 'Three Little Pigs' and 'Little Red Riding Hood' in a dark and twisted manner. Luke Guldan, who plays the character Billy in 'Tell Me A Story' spoke to Meaww in an exclusive interview about the show.
"The new CBS All Access series 'Tell Me A Story,' which premieres this week, takes beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller. Set in modern-day New York City, the first season of the serialized drama interweaves 'The Three Little Pigs,' 'Little Red Riding Hood,' and 'Hansel and Gretel' into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge, and murder," said Guldan, who will be seen majorly in the 'Hansel and Gretel' story-line.

Guldan can also be seen starring in the comedy/philosophical fiction series 'The Good Place' and in comparison to 'Tell Me A Story,' he said: "The shows are kind of on the complete opposite sides of the spectrum with one being a comedy and the other a drama. But the major similarity was great writing and awesomely talented people involved."
Guldan has been part of shows like 'Broad City' and 'Rockaway,' but the character that stuck with him till date was when he played Benjamin Braddock in the theatrical version of 'The Graduate'. "Story. Unique circumstances, three dimensional characters, a clear voice - writing that has a strong need to be told," is what excites him about his scripts.
However, every character an actor plays leaves a mark. For Luke, Billy's character "got me thinking a lot about friendship and how important that is and what defines that". 'Tell Me A Story' has been released and Guldan is prepping for the release of two of his movies, 'Final Frequency' and 'Fluidity,' in 2019.
"Two films I worked on earlier this year, 'Final Frequency' and 'Fluidity,' are slotted to have an early 2019 release date. I'm going to be posting updates about that and other upcoming projects on my Instagram @lukeguldanofficial," Guldan said.
He also asked his fans to "check out the premiere (of 'Tell Me a Story') on CBS All Access, grab some candy corn and enjoy!" We bet fans are excited to watch 'Tell Me A Story' after it was released on the day of Halloween.
The next episode of 'Tell Me a Story' will air November 8, CBS All Access.
