One of the best things about the first season of American Gods was how its thematic ambitions came to life inside the cast's stellar performances. Things often got weird and elliptical on the adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 2001 novel, but you couldn't stop watching because of the excellent acting on display. Here's how some of the show's players brought their characters to life.

The latest episode of American Gods introduced us to Mr Nancy (Orlando Jones), a smooth-talking African trickster god who manifests in the cargo hold of a slave ship making its way from Africa to America. It's dark, foreboding, painful, and some of the best television I've seen in a number of years. I had to talk to Jones himself about it.
