SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Interview: Hugh Laurie, Will Poulter, & Lucy Boynton Talk Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?

Why Didn't They Ask Evans?Today Britbox released the miniseries Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? The story follows Bobby Jones (Will Poulter) and Lady Frankie Derwent (Lucy Boynton) who become amateur sleuths looking to solve a murder and find the meaning behind the victim’s mysterious last words. The three-episode series is based on the Agatha Christie mystery, with a script by Hugh Laurie, who also directs and executive produces, as well as plays the role of Dr. James Nicholson.

Last week, SciFi Vision talked to Laurie during a press conference with the three performers to promote the adaptation about the difficulties choosing what parts to draw from the original vs adding his own ideas to the story. “That's a tricky one,” said Laurie. “I suppose you just have a sort of instinct that, oh, no, that's not going to work here. Something else needs to happen. We need some other ingredient here that you can't really explain why it is; you just feel it. Sometimes I feel when writing I am sort of partially acting as a reader, just reading rather than writing, and when acting, I feel like I'm watching as much as acting…As a reader, or as a viewer, you just get a sense of, I need something different to happen here. I need some surprise, or I need some alteration of energy or pace or something. And as far as I know, there's no great theory to it. Or if there is, I didn't know what the theory is…I think it's just a sort of an instinct…just sort of a rhythmic thing.”

Exclusive Video Interview: That Dirty Black Bag's Douglas Booth

Douglas BoothDouglas Booth stars as Red Bill in the new eight-part drama series on AMC+, That Dirty Black Bag. The series, which plays homage to the classic spaghetti westerns, tells the story of the clash between the sheriff, Arthur McCoy (Dominic Cooper) and Bill, a bounty hunter known for decapitating his targets and keeping their heads in his bag, because heads weigh less than their bodies.

According to Booth, who really changed his looks for the series, the costume, which was a collaboration, really helped him get into character. “When I put his outfit on, I felt a change came over me,” said Booth in a recent exclusive with SciFi Vision. “I'm quite different in the series from how I am in real life, so something happens there, I’d say.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Tosin Cole Talks 61st Street & Doctor Who

Tosin ColeTonight AMC premieres its new series 61st Street, which follows high school track star Moses Johnson, played by Tosin Cole, who witnesses a shooting during a drug bust and flees, which starts off a chain of events that puts him in the middle of the corrupt Chicago criminal justice system when a police officer ends up dead.

The series highlights a lot of what’s going on in the world today, tacking real world issues of racial profiling, institutional racism, police corruption, and more. Cole feels honored to be in such a series and takes it seriously. “You feel like you’ve been chosen to be a vessel for a bigger discussion,” Cole told SciFi Vision during an exclusive interview. “Obviously there’s a sense of responsibility that you have. I mean, obviously, I’m a black man, so I’m trying to make sure I represent and tell the story the best way I can and as truthful as I can, and, obviously, you want to make sure it’s part of a bigger discussion and a discussion that’s held with empathy…I’m just honored to be a part of that discussion and to make something that effects people in that way and [makes] them think.”

The actor continued that the series is based in Chicago, but the themes are universal.

Video Interview: Aasif Mandvi Hosts Would I Lie To You, Premiering Tomorrow

Aasif MandviTomorrow night, The CW premieres its new game show, Would I Lie To You?, based on the British panel series of the same name. Actor and comedian Aasif Mandvi takes Rob Brydon’s role as host, with Matt Walsh and Sabrina Jalees taking on Lee Mack and David Mitchell’s roles as team captains. For each show, two celebrities join each captain to make up the two teams. Players take turns revealing outrageous and unusual facts, and the opposing team of panelists must decide if they are telling the truth or lying.

Mandvi, who recently took part in a roundtable to talk about hosting the new show, told SciFi Vision that he was “very familiar” with the original series. “I was addicted to the original series,” said Mandvi, “and that's why I wanted to do this one. My wife and I just ended up watching it. I think it was in 2019 we discovered it, maybe 2018. I found it on Britbox, and I just started watching it. They’ve got fourteen seasons of the British one, so there was just a lot of material there. So, we would watch it at night as a way to just decompress…We would just use it as a way to kind of just chill and laugh.”

Video Interview: Halo’s Yerin Ha & Jen Taylor on Bringing Their Characters to Life

Yerin Ha and Jen TaylorRecently, the series Halo, which is based on the hugely-popular video game franchise, premiered on Paramount Plus, airing it's third episode yesterday. During a roundtable interview promoting the series, actresses Yerin Ha, who plays Kwan, and Jen Taylor, who plays Cortana, talked to SciFi Vision about what parts they have an easy and more difficult time connecting with.

For Ha, the most difficult part is working with blue and green screens. “I think that was really difficult,” said the actress, “because your imagination has to be on point. They can show you a storyboard and all that kind of stuff, but whatever actually comes to life is so different to how you picture it in your head. [You have] to kind of make sure that that's in check.”

Snoop DoggOn Monday night, twelve more solo artists or groups performed on American Song Contest for week three.  After the live show, the press attended a virtual red carpet to talk to contestants about their performances as well as Snoop Dogg about hosting the competition. We were curious about what kind of song Snoop would enter into a competition like American Song Contest if he were a contestant himself. “I don't even know if I have a song that I've written that qualifies for this,” he told SciFi Vision. “I would probably take my time to write what I've been through and what I'd like to see the world become.”

Video Interview: Chicago P.D.'s Jason Beghe on Voight's Connection with Anna

Jason BegheThe tension is building as Chicago P.D. races toward its season finale. Last night’s episode (9.17, “Adrift”) was a rough one for Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger); they are both still reeling from Makayla’s abduction, and it’s anyone’s guess what will happen with this fan-favorite couple. Meanwhile, Voight (Jason Beghe) took a break from the Escano investigation to support Ruzek with a drug case. With only five episodes to go, you can be sure that Voight and Anna (Carmela Zumbado) will be back in the bakery soon. Voight has a lot of confidence in his informant, but if she’s found out, Escano will surely kill her. 

SciFi Vision caught up with Jason Beghe last week at NBC’s One Chicago press day. We asked him about Voight’s obvious soft spot for Anna and what it is that draws him to her.

“I think that they're both lonely,” Beghe observed, “and so that's one thing. She has Rafa, her son, but that's about it. She's lost all her family, like Voight, and she is very, very single minded and focused and willing to do whatever at her own peril. She's an emotionally invested person, for sure; so is Voight.”

Exclusive: Michael James Shaw on Mercer Opening Up to Princess

***The following interview contains spoilers for 11.15***

Michael James ShawThis week, on an all-new episode of The Walking Dead, we saw Mercer reflect on what he did, killing two Commonwealth soldiers and covering it up. According to Michael James Shaw who plays the character, in the moment, Mercer felt that was his only choice. “I think from from the moment where he finds out in the house safe room that Sebastian (Teo Rapp-Olsson) has been behind the whole thing, he's pretty upset and a little shaken that it all transpired under his nose,” Shaw told SciFi Vision during an exclusive interview. “It's the only action that I think he feels he has the power to take in that moment, because you can't take out the root of the problem. The only way to eliminate the cancer is to take out the soldiers that were involved.

“…[Y]ou see him act. You see him react, as opposed to making a calculated move. He just he reacts. When he hears that they sent forty other civilians and Commonwealth soldiers into this house to get money, I think that's baffling to him, that they would have that kind of disregard for these Commonwealth lives.”
