Apple is getting in the content creation game with their new subscription service Apple TV+, and while they may not have any pre-established pieces of I.P. to help keep it afloat, they’ve gone all-in in hiring great talent both in front of and behind of the camera to make them competitive with some of the bigger studios out there like Disney, Netflix, HBO, and the like.
One ambitious show they have on the horizon is See, starring Jason Momoa, which takes place place in the distant future, where mankind’s eyes no longer work. In this story, we see the new race of humans live their dangerous lives without eyesight.
LRM Online attended a recent press event for the series, and one round table question was how difficult it was to do some of the dangerous stunts without being able to look at what you were doing.
“That’s really scary, because most of the stunts, I can’t actually have direct eye contact with it,” Momoa told us. “So you have to rehearse and rehearse and rehearse. Not to like [brag]…I’ve been doing it for a long time, so for some of the other actors, it might be more challenging, but generally I don’t get many talking roles (laughs). I’m gonna boast myself and then rip myself down. Not the greatest actor, but I can f**k people up without even looking (laughs). But I am better at that part, but for others it might be harder. It is such a ballet, it’s a tactile thing.”
Of course, one such role Momoa is talking about is none other than Khal Drogo, who didn’t say much of anything in Game of Thrones before dying. On the whole, Momoa is often hired to be a physical presence, and as such, all the physical work has helped him with See.
