Heatworld UK has shared a great new video of interviews with the cast of The Nevers, prior to the UK broadcast on Sky Atlantic on MOnday 17th May. Tom Riley and James Norton are funny, seemingly reprising their character traits from the show. Tom again shares his eggy superpower, and promises he broke no rules on set. James apparently broke them all. I wonder if Tom isn't doing his old party trick of jumping like Tigger onto a table from standing (a skill from his Dad) anymore?!
Decider is highly recommending the mid-season finale this Sunday on HBO.
HBO has always gone hard on its Sunday night programming, but this weekend’s episodes of The Nevers and Mare of Easttown might be one of the wildest double features in recent memory. Since it premiered on April 11, The Nevers has confounded viewers with mysteries aplenty, and tonight fans will finally get many of the answers that have eluded them so far. Particularly when it comes to the backstory of one Amalia True (Laura Donnelly)… Meanwhile, over on Mare of Easttown, Episode 5 has some twists and turns that might have you gasping like you’re watching classic Game of Thrones. Together, The Nevers Episode 6 and Mare of Easttown Episode 5 are poised to deliver one of the most exciting Sunday nights of TV in a long time. So without giving spoilers for either The Nevers Episode 6 “True” or Mare of Easttown Episode 5 “Illusions,” we just want to say you’re going to want to watch HBO live Sunday night. Trust us!! (Or be spoiled!)
Screen International has a great interview with production designer Gemma Jackson and costume designer Michele Clapton discussing The Nevers.
The British Film Commission worked with HBO from an early stage to assist in establishing the production in the UK, and providing research on Victorian locations. The BFC’s regional screen agency partners then helped with finding specific locations, including warehouses and industrial spaces in London and places such as Chatham Historic Dockyard in Kent and Joyce Grove country house estate in Oxfordshire. The production also had a base in West London, which was former industrial space converted into a studio especially for the project, with planning support provided by the BFC. “We are very lucky to have this amazing studio space in West London, with the offices for the entire production and also two huge studio spaces.” says Jackson, who received an Oscar nomination for her work on Finding Neverland and has designed big- and small-screen projects including Game Of Thrones and Guy Ritchie’s live-action Aladdin. “Additionally, we went to some locations, which opened out the vision of our Nevers world.” And when it came to the production design, Jackson says that she found great inspiration from the physical sets and locations.
