Cast and crew from the four-time Emmy®-nominated television series, which is also nominated for The Bingeworthy Show of 2020 in the People Choice Awards, have spoken about seeing the audition tape once again.

Paul Mescal said “I remember meeting and working with Daisy for the first time vividly. I knew instantly she was going to be playing Marianne. It just felt inevitable that we would be playing these characters together”

Daisy Edgar-Jones said “It’s very strange watching this back, the day was a complete blur for me as I was so full of nerves. I couldn’t really remember what happened in the room, so it’s really interesting to see that the dynamic between the characters was there so early on despite my terror. It’s also funny to see Paul and I when we didn’t know each other as we’re now such close friends.”
