Colin Morgan Talks About 'The Fall' and Mentions Jamie
You were so good on The Fall, which was also such an interesting exploration of characters. How was your experience on that show, and what was it like to work with Gillian Anderson?
MORGAN: Oh, absolutely fantastic! I was a massive fan of the first season. I just loved it. I hadn’t seen anything quite like that before. Being a Northern Irish guy, I certainly hadn’t seen anything like that done in Northern Ireland before. It felt really new and fresh and quite terrifying. So, when they approached me to be in the second season, it was a no-brainer. And Gillian Anderson is absolutely phenomenal. She’s such a dedicated, committed and thoughtful actor. Her attention to detail is phenomenal. And Jamie Dornan is such an incredible actor. His commitment to the role and his attention to detail was also just so specific. And Allan Cubitt, who wrote and directed the second season, is just an amazing talent. Also, it was actually a really nice shoot with really good, really talented and really committed people. It was just a really good atmosphere to be in. The actual experience of it was good. The fact that it happens to be a really good show, as well, is fantastic. It’s good that it’s getting international acclaim, as well.
