What’s on TV … Interview


Colin Morgan reveals every actor playing a synthetic robot in C4’s new sci-fi thriller, Humans, had to attend a special school before filming started to learn how to behave like an artificial being!

Colin explained: “Humans is a show that focuses on the effect a synthetic human being would have on society. These beings are integrated into the workplace, the family and society in general… and they can do everything better. The show focuses on the positives and the negative implications of this technology.”

He continued: “Synth School was really important for the people portraying Synths. For me it was important to come along and watch a bit of it to see how I responded to it.”

What’s on TV can reveal Colin plays Leo, a mysterious man who lives outside normal society with a selection of rogue Synths. Leo’s decided to help Synths who believe they’ve developed a sort of consciousness. He’s also desperately trying to track down the love of his life – the reprogrammed Synth, Anita, played by Fresh Meat’s Gemma Chan.

But the Merlin and The Fall star is keeping tight-lipped about whether or not his outlaw character, Leo, is human or synthetic:

“There’s a lot of ambiguity around Leo, but whether it’s connected to the technology or not is yet to be discovered…”
I tried to embed this very interesting video interview with Colin … no luck there.  But you can find it on the following link to this article.   Have you missed Colin’s wonderful Irish accent?  The video is all Colin, accent and all.  ❤

  1. I was able to find a link to the video on YouTube (via colinmorganismagical) and have it in my latest post, if you want to copy the link. 🙂


    • Thanks Jen, but it’s ok … I’m happy with this as is. I have the video, but the link wouldn’t embed. (operator error, I’m sure 😦 )


    • I couldn’t get the link to embed either, so we both had “operator error”. 😀 Then I found the youtube link, so used that instead. 🙂

      It’s a good interview that gives nothing away. 🙂


      • Still, you found a way. I had searched YouTube this morning, but didn’t have the right combo of words (?). Though I used Colin Morgan and Humans …? Anyway, Well Done !!!


      • I have also tried, with both this one and the last one, to find them on YT, but, like you, couldn’t. Sometimes I come across them purely by accident while looking for something similar, but no luck this time. So credit should go to colinmorganismagical for this one, as that’s where I came across the link. 🙂
