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.
Paul Ritter's acting as head chef was so amazing.It'll forever haunt me.
This host is just dreadful. Such a poorly conducted interview.
On a positive note, Paul Ritter is fabulous. Articulate and respectful. A wonderful actor.

"Comrade actor.. you're done"
But interviewer has 3.6 IQ, not great, not terrible.
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 casts understanding and empathy for the subject matter is second to none, the interviewer not so much.

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.

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

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 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.

Ralitsa Angelova:
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.
I bet that presenter thought Cher Nobyl was an X factor contestant.

“So in this movie, was there acting involved, and did you do it?”
Decent interview...not great...not terrible...
Paul Ritter was AMAZING. So was Jared, so was Emily so was Jessie.
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.

I am fond of Paul Ritter's work. Dyatlov looks like a tricky devil. Of course he is not alone responsible for disaster.

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.

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

Paul Ritter is amazing in this mini-series but I keep seeing him as Martin from Friday Night Dinner.

Could have been a great interview but missed opportunity . I felt awkward for them.
Jessie Buckley is a phenomenal performer

What an utter clown to review the stellar stars of such a great series
Calla Lily

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.

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

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.
That host is very rude not standing up to shake hands when the guests join him!
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

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

Its scary seeing Martin being normal
6:07 dyatlov is not happy 😂

All of them need to be nominated for an Emmy. Please.
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.

“Empathize with the character” even though she said the character was made up that host is an absolute gay mong
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.

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

Jessie Buckley reminds me of Alice Eve 😍
Doesn't matter what the host says, his shiny eyes are saying to us:"Lets have a fun girls!!!"

Thank you for such a great movie!
We all should remember about that disaster!

I rate the host 3.6 out of 15,000 - not great, not terrible.

Jared Harris is the best of this mini series

On this side of the pond we call that interviewer a TOOL.

I just realized how awkward it sounds when you hear a host say "Chernobyl everybody!" and then a round of studio applause lol

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

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.
Juan Salazar
Juan Salazar:
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
Miles Dyson

Британцы сняли качественный сериал . Хвала создателям .
Four exceptional actors......I’d hate to pick anyone out as to not to down play any of the others. Brilliant all of them...
I think there’s graphite on the floor of the studio.

Terrible interview, rotten questions, amazing series and an amazing cast.

The host needs to be fired
When Dyatlow calls you charismatic, that's definitely great.
B A N A N A T I G E R:
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 just love Paul Ritter so much

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"..:)

У актера игравшего Дятлова похоже по жизни скептическое выражение лица "никакого графита там нет". Ему даже играть не нужно.

These may be the four best actors I've ever seen on screen at the same time

This is the second interview I've seen with the guests holding clunky mikes
Chloe Fairburn
Chloe Fairburn:
I feel bad for paul Ritter because hes a nice person in real life and he had to play dyatlov which was probably annoying for him
“Martin can you stop eating from the bin”!
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.
Not Sure

I cant take Paul Ritter serious. Great actor but for me he will always be Martin Goodman All I see is Martin and the Chernobyl disaster makes so much sense, why it happened.
Surviving The Apocalypse
Surviving The Apocalypse:
I would give my right leg to ask these actors questions. It pains me to watch someone who clearly knows nothing about Chernobyl or hasn’t even seen a single episode of the tv show.

Juan Salazar
Juan Salazar:
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?"
Thank you all! You did great job!
Emily Watson trying not to laugh at the first (CGI) question to Paul Ritter.
