" THERE'S A LOT FIGHTER HE COULD GO "

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Incorporated - Sean teale is Ben Lar­son

We see Ben screw­ing over his co­worker Chad in the pi­lot. Does that make him harder to root for?

He has ev­ery in­ten­tion of fix­ing that. There are ways around help­ing Chad and his fam­ily. I have to look at Ben as the Road Run­ner. He’s sprint­ing at such a speed, and his mind works at such a pace, that if he were to look down over that cliff, he would fall. He is do­ing these hor­ri­ble things, but there’s a lot fur­ther he could go. The stakes will get a lot higher than in the pi­lot.

Ju­lian is the bo­gey­man of the Spiga Cor­po­ra­tion. How scared should Ben be of him?

He’s sort of ter­ri­fy­ing. There’s a con­sis­tent cat-and-mouse game be­tween the two of us. Ju­lian is nat­u­rally sus­pi­cious of ev­ery­one. That’s what his ti­tle re­quires him to do. He’s very much the man I have to be aware of and that Ben has to spend time dodg­ing.

What is your favourite piece of tech­nol­ogy from the show?

Ben has de­signed this de­vice that al­lows you to en­ter and exit net­works, or other en­crypted sites, without leav­ing any foot­prints. That al­lows him ac­cess to most things, which would be nice to have in the real world!
