And that is what the creative team behind Hemlock has delivered.

Asked about playing the lead character, Alfred J Hemlock, actor Tristan Mckinnon said "Hemlock was an evolution for all of us. Each department from script, to costume, to makeup, seemed to seamlessly feed into the development of the character.
