Writer / co-creator J. Michael Straczynski and stars Daryl Hannah, Brian J. Smith, and Tuppence Middleton are just some of the interviews at the San Francisco red carpet premiere of “Sense8,” Netflix’s latest drama/fantasy series, co-created by Andy and Lana Wachowski.
“One gunshot, one death, one moment out of time that irrevocably links eight minds in disparate parts of the world, putting them in each other’s lives, each other’s secrets, and in terrible danger. Ordinary people suddenly reborn as ‘Sensates.'”
“Sense8” is a 10-episode, first-season drama from Lana and Andy Wachowski (“Bound,” “The Matrix,” “Cloud Atlas”) and J. Michael Straczynski (“Babylon 5” TV series and films “Changeling,” “Thor” and “Underworld Awakening”). For Wachowski siblings, “Sense8” is their first TV show production, which was filmed around the world and features an array of international actors. Popular stars, such as Naveen Andrews (“Lost”), Daryl Hannah (“Splash,” “Kill Bill”), Brian J. Smith (“Stargate Universe”) and Freema Agyeman (“Doctor Who”), appeared in a number of episodes.
SIDEWALKS host Veronica Castro talks to the co-creator Straczynski and a numbers of the stars, who came to San Francisco — where parts of the series was filmed — for a red carpet preview show at the AMC Metron. The following are the complete interviews, as well as non-televised segments with Ness Bautista (plays Diego) and Maximilienne Ewalt (Grace).
