THE STRAIN’s Guillermo del Toro (who co-created the series and co-wrote the books the show was based on) has an incredible impact on the FX drama thus far. And while some of his contributions are known — he directed the pilot, and a key part of the season 2 opener — del Toro (or, rather, a dream he had) was also responsible for something freaky: Eichorst’s “white room.”

“Well, I dream very little that is interesting; most of the time it is very boring,” del Toro told reporters as THE STRAIN was filming on location in Toronto. “But I just thought the idea of Eichorst being a connoisseur — he’s so refined and elegant — I thought well…[and] I remember an old porn story where they said porn actors eat only pineapple for reasons of interaction, and I thought this guy would probably feed his victims only certain vitamins and juices so the flavor is a little better. I don’t dream normal. It’s very strange.”

But also kind of perfectly awesome for the character/show, as well.

Check out more from del Toro, as he spoke to his availability to work on the show this season, as well as the series continuing to deviate from the books…

THE STRAIN season 2 premieres Sunday, July 12th at 10 PM on FX.
