One of the shows I was most excited for at SXSW was Condor and as such I was excited to be able to schedule some interviews with the team behind it. I got to interview it’s stars Max Irons, and Leem Lubany, as well as the show’s creators Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg. These interviews were in the afternoon before the show’s premier at SouthBy so I was going into it as an interested fan of the original film Three Days of the Condor and a hopeful fan of the show Condor. My review of Condor is already posted for your pleasure, and spoiler alert I liked it, but please check it out too. But you’ll definitely want to check out these interviews after the jump!
Now, just as a slight word of warning, there is a lot of background noise in these recordings. Its not so much that you can’t hear or enjoy the interviews, but I’d be remiss to not mention it. At the time there were two other journalists interviewing another part of the creative team at the same time in a medium sized room and as such there is some unavoidable cross talk. I did some work to minimize the background noise for you, but its still there.
Anyways, first up is Max Irons as our lead character Joe Turner:
Next up is Leem Lubany as the nebulous assassin Gabriel Joubert:
And last, but certainly not least are the show’s creators Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg:
