Almost Human:
Interview! sat in during a conference call with the FOX series’ Karl Urban (John) and Michael Ealy (Dorian). When asked if the actors added anything extra to their individual roles, Urban stated, “For the most part what you see on screen is what’s on the page. We’re really blessed with having an amazing team of writers headed by Joel. The wonderful thing about the process is that if Michael and I feel like we have something to contribute we are working in an environment where it is welcomed. So we will do what’s in the script and on the page, but then also we have the freedom to try one for ourselves.” Ealy also shared, “I would say kind of the same thing. What we’re able to discover every day that we go to work about these characters has been – there is a significant amount of off-the-page intrigue, again, in establishing this world that we’re not – we can’t use sense memory. We’re in a world that doesn’t exist yet, and I think that has been probably one of the more interesting components in terms of trying to understand what we’re doing and where this thing is heading.”
