David Tennant and Michael Sheen, the stars of Amazon Prime's eagerly anticipated series Good Omens, were interviewed by media site With An Accent yesterday during their appearance at New York Comic Con. The pair spoke about the star quality and range of their many co-starts in the series and, given the importance of their characters' relationship to the plot, their anxieties about clicking on set. David also mentions the one cast member with whom he failed to bond - Ollie, who plays Dog.
Based on the much adored comic novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Good Omens is written and produced by Gaiman and directed by Douglas Mackinnon. David Tennant and Michael Sheen star respectively as demon Crowley and angel Aziraphale in the the six-part series, which also boasts a huge cast of major worldwide talent including Adria Arjona, Miranda Richardson, Michael McKean, Jack Whitehall, Sir Derek Jacobi, John Hamm, Daniel Mays and Nina Sosanya, plus many more. Set on the verge of the Apocalypse the series centres on an angel and demon who form a reluctant alliance to try to prevent the end of the world. Filmed on location in the UK and South Africa, Good Omens is set to premiere worldwide on Amazon in early 2019.
