We are very grateful for these interviews regarding Colin’s ‘take’ on the characters he portrays. Link to complete article follows. Here is an excerpt to tease your interest … as if we needed to !!
Can you tell us a bit about Leo? … In Colin’s words …
Leo is a man on a mission, a man who’s hunted, haunted, determined to get the answers that are bumping around inside himself. He needs to understand who he is, his place in the world and the reason for his existence and that’s what drives him through the show. He’s on a quest. He’s looking for answers and his irrepressible sort of determination to get those answers is what drives him through the show.

Anytime we read Colin’s comments we are reminded: The man is Brilliant!!
The conflict dealt with in the show between humans and synths is one of high tension.
… It presents so many questions, because giving something life comes with a level of responsibility. And while it doesn’t so much tell you about the synthetic itself, I think it very much reflects your own perceptions. Because what is so interesting about introducing this type of technology into the world is that it tells us so much more about ourselves and our own prejudices.
