What We Do in the Shadows


"Laszlo Cravensworth," played by Matt Berry, is a man of many talents. It’s impossible to measure the immense effect he’s had on culture, but throughout his life he’s been a musician, an artist and a pornographer. He is a dapper man and will do almost anything to make a fashion statement, including wearing a cursed witch skin hat. In his spare time, he loves to tend to his topiaries and prized among them are representations of vulvas he has known and loved. He is an excellent lover, he’ll have you know, and though he is married to Nadja, that doesn’t mean his eye doesn’t wander. Vampires don’t subscribe to your hetero-normative ideas.

Berry is a BAFTA award-winning actor, writer and musician. He recently starred as “Steven Toast” in Toast of London for Channel 4, which he co-created. In 2015, Berry won a BAFTA for his performance in Toast while the show went on to earn six British Comedy Awards nominations, winning Best New Comedy Program.

Previously, Berry starred in The IT Crowd for five seasons on the U.K.’s Channel 4, BBC2’s The Mighty Boosh, Channel 4’s Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace and BBC3’s Snuff Box. He also appeared on the last season of Community. Berry made a memorable appearance on Portlandia, starred opposite Sam Rockwell in Moon and appeared in Focus Features’ One Day.

He is a talented voice actor and musician who recorded introductions for the 2012 London Olympic closing ceremonies and composed the music for AB/DC: A Rock Opera, Snuff Box and Toast of London. Berry has also released three folk albums to much critical acclaim.
