PASADENA, Calif. - The two stars of Fox's creepy thriller "The Following" acknowledge that their show gives them nightmares.

Kevin Bacon plays former FBI agent Ryan Hardy, who's on the trail of a sadistic serial killer played by James Purefoy in the series, which attracted negative attention for its violence in its premiere season last year but also had strong ratings. It returns for its second season on Sunday.

Bacon and Purefoy both said Monday the characters stick with them after work. Purefoy said playing a character that not only celebrates death but finds great beauty in it brings fretful nights.

Jessica Stroup, who is new to the series, says she can sleep well, but she's watching her surroundings more carefully while awake.
