When Brona (Billie Piper) was hastened to her grave last year on “Penny Dreadful,” fans knew it wasn”t the last they”d seen of the plucky Irish immigrant. But who knew her return would have her so disconcertingly unlike herself?

Meet Lily and go behind-the scenes in the exclusive clip above to see how the Billie Piper was resurrected into the a doll-like Bride for Frankenstein”s Creature! Unlike the quick ten-minute make-up time for Brona, Lily has a much more polished and fragile look. Costume designer Gabriella Pescucci got to play around a bit with Lily”s look. Since the character is not of Victorian London, her costumes get to have a slightly otherworldly and childlike quality to them.

Now that the cat is out of the proverbial bag, Showtime was also able to finally reveal Billie Piper”s character poster for Season Two!

“Penny Dreadful” airs Sunday nights at 10/9c on Showtime.
