Yesterday, Apple TV Plus premiered the first two episodes of its new science fiction series, Silo
. Based on the trilogy of best-selling novels by Hugh Howey, the story takes place in the future, where a community of ten thousand people live in a giant underground silo, unable to leave, because the outside world is uninhabitable. They live by a strict code of rules and to disobey, or to request to leave, has deadly consequences. After a series of unexplained events, Juliette (Rebecca Ferguson), an engineer from down in the deep of the silo, starts down a path of trying to solve the larger mystery of the silo, where finding out the truth could be as deadly as the lies.
Ferguson recently talked to the press where she spoke with SciFi Vision about working on Silo
. One of the difficulties the actress faced, she told the site, was speaking with an American accent. “An American [accent] is always quite difficult, because when [I] have to do an accent, I have to step out,” said Ferguson. “…I have a voice coach on set, but you're not free to ad lib and play. You're stuck within the frames of rhythm and culture, and American culture is not the same as Swedish culture in the way Americans speak.” The actress also added that she also had to hold herself back to make Juliette more introverted than she herself is.
