Jared Harris, Emily Watson, Paul Ritter and Jessie Buckley Talk ‘Chernobyl’

We are joined by Paul Ritter, Jessie Buckley, Jared Harris and Emily Watson who talk to us about the new Sky Atlantic series based on the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine. We learn how challenging for the cast it was to portray such a recent and tragic event, and how they went about ensuring they told the story authentically and with integrity.

Paul Ritter is so nice in this interview but the character he plays is so hateful.

That host is delusional, he should be taken to the infirmary.
Paul Ritter's acting as head chef was so amazing.It'll forever haunt me.
The host is clearly delusional. Must be drinking the feed water.

Incompetent host. Drags the entire interview down. Jumping from question to question without so much as a bat of eye is in incredibly poor taste when faced with the scale of the series. Just awful. I feel bad for the actors. On another note, Paul Ritter seems like a very nice gentleman. Brilliant how some actors can turn into polar opposites of themselves.
The casts understanding and empathy for the subject matter is second to none, the interviewer not so much.

The host was hired because Ali G was too expensive

I think the questions are fine, the problem is the host doesn’t have any interaction with the guests. Instead of follow up on their answers, he keeps on shooting new questions at them.

This host is just dreadful. Such a poorly conducted interview.
On a positive note, Paul Ritter is fabulous. Articulate and respectful. A wonderful actor.

Lyudmilas portrayal by this actress was astonishing. The part were her husband was being buried just ripped my heart and found myself in uncontrollable tears coming out of my eyes. It shook me and took me a week to recover. She was so good portraying that pain I just wanted to jump into the screen and hug her

The fact that I hate to see Paul Ritter even here speaks volumes of his acting skills in Chernobyl.. Awesome actor !!!

“So in this movie, was there acting involved, and did you do it?”

Wow Paul Ritter seems so so lovely irl when he plays such a complete arsehole in Chernobyl...clearly he's a great actor. Then again they all are, absolutely amazing performances!

Dreadful interviewer, 'low level drug dealer chic' is not working at all, have some self-respect and some for your subjects and audience too.

"Comrade actor.. you're done"
But interviewer has 3.6 IQ, not great, not terrible.

I scrolled through the comments right after I started watching this and having seen everyone saying the host is weak, my expectations were low. But man... the host is even worse than those low expectations.

I am fond of Paul Ritter's work. Dyatlov looks like a tricky devil. Of course he is not alone responsible for disaster.
I bet that presenter thought Cher Nobyl was an X factor contestant.
She wasnt a lone female voice amongst men who knew better. Her character didn't exist, she represented many nuclear scientists, men and women, who were being ignored and silenced by the state.

What a wonderful actors and personalities. Therefore, they succeeded in their roles. Greetings from Ukraine.

The host butchered the pronunciation of names, did not even try to attempt to be accurate, it put me off and seemed pretty disrespectful. Questions were mostly shallow and selected to tickle itchy ears about controversial matters, I believe it made the actors uncomfortable and especially Emily Watson, despite this they handled it professionally and gave great answers that were very insightful.
Dyatlov when he walks into control room at the power plant:

*heLLo bAmBiNoS*
Currently consuming as much Paul Ritter as possible. Recently finished a rewatch of Chernobyl and the entire Friday Night Dinner series and I am heartbroken at his passing. 54 is no age at all. Rest in peace, Paul. You will be missed. Thoughts with his wife and sons.
The host isn't good enough

I adore Paul Ritter.
They should invite the real Lyiudmila Ignatenko to one of these talk-shows to give her an opportunity to tell the real story and experience she endured during the hard times she faced
Alex Low

This series has quite a serious subject matter and yet the video has all this glammed up music and not very respectful host.

I suprised how americans and english actors understand and feel whats happened in that year in USSR. Totally understand situation. Thank you for creating this beautiful movie.
Is the host on work experience?

Could have been a great interview but missed opportunity . I felt awkward for them.

Paul Ritter is amazing in this mini-series but I keep seeing him as Martin from Friday Night Dinner.
That host is very rude not standing up to shake hands when the guests join him!
The interviewer (who dress like a gym-trainer) seem to think that this is a job interview for the cast, and the utter stiffness of it all is awkward.
Jessie Buckley is a phenomenal performer

Did they just pick up someone random on the street after the actual host called in sick? The clothes are just embarrassing.

Jared Harris does another excellent role of a man who really existed. The same with his amazing performance as Captain Francis Crozier in The Terror.

Strange interview, he's not interacting with the guests, theres little to no conversation and when there is some interesting communication between them, he interrupts to ask another question, asking them one by one. Reminds me of a teacher asking each student in the class answers to their homework questions.

Jessie Buckley reminds me of Alice Eve 😍
Paul Ritter was AMAZING. So was Jared, so was Emily so was Jessie.

Paul Ritter is one of my favourite actors. So versatile.
Doesn't matter what the host says, his shiny eyes are saying to us:"Lets have a fun girls!!!"

1 month ago they had no idea the series would became so popular and nr1 on IMDB

I haven't had the chance to experience much of Paul Ritter's work so you can say I saw him in Chernobyl for the first time. And after the role, although he's a cool guy, I seem to fear him kind of. He played it so gracefully that it embedded him as that character in my mind. Amazing actor!

I was like: wtf is this jerk doing with them (Dyatlov). Then I realised Paul played his role really well. Lol

When the actors started explaining the circumstances of the security test, I had the impression that they were still somehow playing their Chernobyl characters.Especially Jared.

Jessie 🖤
Four exceptional actors......I’d hate to pick anyone out as to not to down play any of the others. Brilliant all of them...
The Lost One
The Lost One:
The “interview” seems more like a visit to the DMV than an interview. I get he’s trying to get through questions, but it feels forced. I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but there didn’t seem like there was a connection with the actors.
''to put the lid back on'' i see what you did there

The interviewer has not seen Chernobyl. Bad questions. By the way,Who is his hairdresser?

У актера игравшего Дятлова похоже по жизни скептическое выражение лица "никакого графита там нет". Ему даже играть не нужно.
Jared Harris is the best of this mini series
Jessie's great. She such a seriousness to her facial expression which completely flips the other way around with even the slightest glimpse of a smile.

Adam Borseti:
I just realized how awkward it sounds when you hear a host say "Chernobyl everybody!" and then a round of studio applause lol
When Dyatlow calls you charismatic, that's definitely great.

The host's outfit is the clothes they would have in the lost and found if someone stole his clothes out of his locker at the gym.

I remember the day of the explosion one Brit TV announcer said with a grin- "Now it's time to go over to the weather forecast as I'm sure we'd like to know which way the winds blowing"..:)

Jessie Buckley, Is a versatile, beautiful, truly, driven actress, who is professionally, honing her craft, she is so believable accent wise. This lovely woman who was recognised by none other than Andrew Lloyd Webber, as a Lass of prodigious talent, 13 years ago ( I think) .
6:07 dyatlov is not happy 😂

I recommend that you guys look up the experience of the wife of Anatoly Sitnikov, she basically went through what Vasilys wife did in the show, but her story is bittersweet and real

1:42 I truly hate the fact that they skip playing the trailer for the YouTube viewer. This Copyright poop makes no sense to me. It is just a trailer!!

Redhead Jessie Buckley who played the curly-haired Lyudmilla, pregnant wife of a doomed firefighter, is from Killarney (Ireland) where actor Michael Fassbender was raised. She’s also a world-class singer and a favorite of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Jared Harris (extreme right) is the son of late Irish actor Richard Harris who played Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films.
One of the most astonishing things is that you managed to create images of Soviet people, being modern americans. Thanks from Ukraine!

One question I would have liked answered is "When you studied the effects of radiation to a human being, did that add an extra layer to your character and if so how much?"

Don't know if this is a big talk show but it seems really low budget and less than totally professional. I'm curious how in the world this cast got persuaded to appear.

After this , i think I'm delunation, i get fire for Dyatlov.
