Warlock Games: Characters
Played by: D'Arcy Molyneux
Bio: The magical, powerful forest dweller for whom death is the driving force of life. When promised with death (even that of family members), he will stop at nothing in order to see it fulfilled.
Trivia: In the script of WG1, the warlock is only ever referred to as 'Nasty Southern Warlock' or 'NSW'.
Played by: Matt Penna
Bio: Unwittingly forced into accompanying his friend Adam in the search for Jeff, this eccentric fellow finds himself thrust into the spotlight when the warlock's true plans are revealed. Suddenly it's all about him...
Trivia: The name 'Zepp' comes as one of the many references to the "Saw" franchise (the apprentice in the first film is called by this name.)
Played by: Louie Renna
Bio: Brother of Lumpy and cousin of Zepp, he too finds himself a victim of the warlock's sadistic games, after witnessing the bloody murder of a young (and handsome) boy. Enjoys rugby and sunset walks on the beach.
Trivia: This role was written after Louie Renna expressed interest in entering the series. It was later underwritten after Louie Renna expressed a lack of interest.
Played by: Ben Crome
Bio: The yin to the warlock's yan, the Dumbledore to the warlock's Voldemort, the magical elf of the forest is the equal and opposite of the warlock, and therefore helps maintain the harmonious balance of the forest.
Trivia: In an uncredited role, the elf makes an appearance in WG2, walking along in the background, going about his daily business.
Played by: Tom Ritchie
Bio: Out of all of the forest outsiders, Adam knows its depths the best. However, his confidence in their convenience turns sour when it gets his best friend lost, and another killed. And he always seems to get beat up by the warlock the most...
Trivia: Tom shat on screen.
Played by: Jon Lawrence
Bio: If Zepp is slightly eccentric, it runs in the family. His cousin Lumpy is EXTREMELY eccentric, with a penchant for old fashioned airmen's uniforms. He seems to suffer quite terribly at the hands of the Warlock, but how he recovered from his injuries so fast is a mystery to all...
Trivia: Lumpy's real name is never actually revealed. He does, however, find his nickname rather offensive, and takes unkindly to those who call him by it.
Played by: Rory Gordon
Bio: Adam's loyal (but often unavailable) friend comes along on the search for Jeff - a mistake he undoubtedly lived (or died?) to regret. But he finds live beyond the grave (or dirt hole) rather stimulating, and comes to be a very wise advisor.
Trivia: Rory, a notorious method actor, achieved just the right ghostly effect for his role in WG3 - because he was hungover. A lot.
Played by: Simeon Grimshaw
Bio: The clueless Geordie finds himself a little too lost in dark quarters, and puts too much trust in a particular elf, causing a hell of a lot of trouble for his friends back home.
Trivia: In the original draft of WG1, Jeff is far more northern, mostly through jokes and gags pulled. Much of this, however, was cut in editing due to time constraints.
