It’s the Amazon Prime drama that Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman fans have been waiting for – Good Omens is finally here.?
泰瑞·普莱契和尼尔·盖曼粉丝一直在等待的亚马逊Prime剧集《好兆头》终于来了。

But it may not be exactly as lovers of the novel remember it.?
但它可能和原小说粉丝记忆中的不太一样。

Why? Because Neil Gaiman has admitted he’s made some tweaks, specifically to satan, the role played by Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch.
为什么?因为尼尔·盖曼已经承认他做了一些调整,特别是对撒旦这个角色,也就是《神探夏洛克》的卷福扮演的角色。

“It’s going to keep you watching and engaged, I hope, until the last seconds of Episode 6.” He added, his motivation was partly, “just the knowledge that so many millions of people have read the novel, that you want to surprise them — you don’t want them all just being cocky and going, ‘I know what’s going to happen all the way through.'”
“我希望,直到第6集的最后几秒钟,它都会让你目不转睛、心无旁骛。”他补充说,他的动机部分是“由于已经有百万人读过小说,所以我想要给他们个惊喜;你不希望他们都是一种'我知道将会发生什么事情'的飘飘然的状态。“

The news came in an interview Gaiman gave to Variety. He also spoke about he knew from the very start that the only person who could do the character of the devil justice was the BAFTA-winning actor.
这个消息来自《综艺》对盖曼的采访。他还谈到他从一开始就知道唯一可以真正扮演好撒旦一角的人,只能是这位获得过英国电影学院奖的演员。

Benedict Cumberbatch will play Satan in #GoodOmens, coming later in 2019 to @BBCTwo.?
本尼迪克特·康伯巴奇将在《好兆头》中扮演撒旦,这部剧将于2019年晚些时候在@BBCTwo播出。

“I started thinking, ‘Okay, who can I find? Who could give me this performance in a small enough space?’, Benedict was simply my first choice.”
“我一开始想,'好吧,我能找到谁?谁能在足够小的空间里给我这样的表演?',卷福就是我的第一选择。“

So rather than going through agents, the writer dropped Cumberbatch an email, and the actor was soon on board. Gaiman knew he’d made the right decision when the actor came into the recording studio to voice the 500ft demon.
因此,作家不是通过经纪人,而是通过电子邮件联系了卷福,然后这位演员很快就入伙了。当他走进录音室来录制这个500英尺高的恶魔时,盖曼知道他做出了正确的决定。
