Ori­gin Story

“I was sent the script and im­me­di­ately re­sponded to the genre be­cause I grew up a huge In­di­ana Jones fan and I’d never done ex­actly this type of ac­tion ad­ven­ture show be­fore. I said yes be­fore I even saw the Li­brar­ian movies, and then I saw the movies and re­alised the tone was so much fun­nier than I thought it was go­ing to be.”

All About Eve

“Colonel Eve Baird is a counter ter­ror­ism ex­pert. She’s an in­ves­ti­ga­tor and she’s sort of the straight man of the group, the scep­tic, the voice of the au­di­ence who doesn’t be­lieve in magic. But as soon as she’s con­vinced that there is magic in the world and that hu­man­ity is un­der threat she re­alises her job there is much more im­por­tant than she thought.”

JUST SAY NOAH

“This is Noah Wyle’s baby. He’s our ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer, he over­sees ev­ery­thing and he’s a re­cur­ring character. We’re con­stantly talk­ing about him and he does ap­pear in roughly half of our episodes. It’s re­ally the same as the movies. It’s a fun, fan­tasy ac­tion ad­ven­ture show. There’s noth­ing dark or bleak. We’re not su­per­heroes. Fam­i­lies can watch it to­gether.”

Go­ing By The Book

“One of my favourites is the fairy­tale episode where we go to this town and fairy­tale char­ac­ters are com­ing to life and killing peo­ple. We slowly start turn­ing into fairy­tale char­ac­ters too, which is mor­ti­fy­ing, es­pe­cially for Eve who starts turn­ing into a princess! Most of our episodes stand­alone, but there is a through­line and a great pay­off in the fi­nale.”

Added Mys­tique

“Jen­nifer Lawrence and I got to talk a lot about the make- up process on First Class, which is very dif­fer­ent for her now. It’s an hon­our to share the role with her. She’s a re­ally cool girl, so tal­ented and so beau­ti­ful. I don’t miss hav­ing to go through the make up process, but it was a re­ally spe­cial group to be a part of. It was a spe­cial time.”
