    Thank you for a really profound interview with Christopher Eccleston. Episode 3 is just a stand out episode and shows the emotional range and depth he has to his craft. Being an older sister I always yearned for an older brother growing up. I've met Christopher on numerous occasions and he's always been that brother I never had. An absolute gentleman too, ordinary but extraordinary in all so many ways.

    Thanks for your extremely kind compliments Jen! I'm glad you believe the interview so profound. As you said, Chris was amazing and he was willing to talk about anything and actually wanted to keep going. That's so cool you have had a chance to meet him so many times. How did that happen?

    I live in England, so am fortunate enough to see Christopher at film premieres, theatre productions. Another choice of words; beautiful, powerful and memorising I describe his craft.

    I am a LONG time fan of Mr. Eccleston! I am not fortunate enough to have met him (yet) but I hope to one day! Loved this interview. Adore this actor more than words! Thank you for this! So glad I found you guys before Season 2 begins! Xx- Maria

    Great interview with a great actor. Loved his behind the scenes stories as well as his perspective on what's happening. I say more of Matt in season2 and beyond! Hope they can keep him!

    Excited for Season 2!!

    I will admit this is the first tv show I've seen Christopher Eccleston in, but he is probably my favorite character on The Leftovers 🙂 Thanks for a great interview with him (and others)!

  8. So different from his role on 28 Days. A great actor.
