Last December, EW premiered an image of Zachary Quinto as the aged version of the vampiric Charlie Manx in AMC’s adaptation of Joe Hill‘s horror novel NOS4A2. Now, the cable channel has released a photo of Quinto looking considerably more youthful on the show, which debuts this summer.

In NOS4A2, Manx periodically rejuvenates by feeding on the life forces of children as he transports them to a fantasy world he has created called Christmasland. “In the journey, they become these ghoulish creatures, and Charlie Manx is fed with vitality and youth,” says the actor.

Ashleigh Cummings plays the show’s heroine Vic McQueen, who is about to enter her senior year at a high school in Massachusetts. “She’s a working-class kid who has such a creative mind that it actually gives her a kind of superpower,” says showrunner Jami O’Brien. “Charlie Manx becomes aware of her and realizes that she may be bad news for him, so he has to figure out pretty quickly what to do about her.”

While Quinto’s character has vampiric tendencies, the show’s title — a riff on the name of F.W. Murnau’s classic horror film Nosferatu — directly refers to the vanity plate on Manx’s car, a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith. “The car has a very special relationship with Charlie Manx,” says O’Brien. “I would describe them as partners in crime.”
