CS Video: Don’t Look Deeper interview with star Helena Howard
Just in time for the sci-fi thriller’s debut on fresh streaming platform Quibi, ComingSoon.net got the chance to talk with Don’t Look Deeper star Helena Howard to discuss her role in the series, as well as working with co-stars Don Cheadle and Emily Mortimer and director Catherine Hardwicke! Our interview can be viewed in the player below!
Set in Merced, California, “fifteen minutes into the future,” Don’t Look Deeper centers on a high school senior who can’t seem to shake the feeling that something about her just isn’t right. And that something is… she’s not human… not one of us. This revelation of what she really is, where she comes from, and who has started looking for her, sets in motion a series of events that suddenly puts her entire life in jeopardy.
A dark and provocative take on technology versus humanity, Don’t Look Deeper is a bold tale of self-discovery from the co-creator of Lost, Jeffrey Lieber, and YouTube sensation Charlie McDonnell.
Directed by Hardwicke, this futuristic thriller stars Oscar nominee Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda), Emily Mortimer (Mary Poppins Returns), and breakout talent Helena Howard (Madeline’s Madeline), as well as Jan Luis Castellanos (13 Reasons Why), Ema Horvath (The Gallows Act II), Kaiwi Lyman (Den of Thieves), Harvey Zielinski (My First Summer), and Belissa Escobedo (The Baker and the Beauty).
Hardwicke executive produces the series along with showrunner and writer Lieber and McDonnell, along with Kathleen Grace and Laura Schwartz from New Form and Jed Weintrob and Julina Tatlock for 30 Ninjas.
