A Very Technical First Look at American Gods' Shadow Moon and Laura

Illustration for article titled A Very Technical First Look at iAmerican Gods/i Shadow Moon and Laura

We’ve seen Ricky Whittle, star of the upcoming TV adaptation of American Gods, as protagonist Shadow Moon before. But EW assures us that this is a picture of the character talking to his wife Laura (played by Emily Browning) if a first look, and since it is indeed the first pic of them together, hey, here’s your first look at this specific combination of characters, I guess. Whee!

All that said, Laura does seem to be nude and sporting a pretty horrific scar across her chest. Readers of Neil Gaiman’s novel know what Laura’s deal is, but for the rest of you guys, I can tell you it’s Dane Cook’s fault.

Rob Bricken was the Editor of io9 from 2016-18, the creator of the poorly named but fan-favorite news site Topless Robot, and now writes nerd stuff for many places, because it's all he's good at.

An autopsy scar, for sure.

SPOILER below:

But Shadow is touching her. I don’t remember him being able to touch her in her ‘ghost’ state.
