Showtime’s Penny Dreadful will be returning for a second season in 2015 and the network celebrated the success of season one (it drew in an average of 4.8 million viewers) by bringing cast members to the San Diego Comic Con for a Q&A with fans. The network also hosted a party in downtown San Diego at the U.S. Grant Hotel with the cast joining series creator John Logan on the red carpet.

One of the show’s most intriguing characters, Dorian Gray, is played by Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark on Broadway). Fortunately, Carney was among the show’s stars who made the trip to San Diego and who answered a few questions on the red carpet before heading into the party.

Check out what Carney had to say about whether Dorian Gray is a hero or villain of the series, what sort of research he did for the role, and what fans can expect from season two:
