Exclusive Video Interview: Himesh Patel on Entering the World of ‘Station Eleven’

Check out more of our video interviews on our YouTube channel.

The HBO Max limited series Station Eleven, based on the book of the same name by Emily St. John Mandel, opens with a devastating pandemic that forever changes the world. As Jeevan (Himesh Patel) wanders a desolate Chicago with the young Kirsten (Matilda Lawler) in tow shortly after the outbreak, an older Kirsten (Mackenzie Davis) acts as part of the Traveling Symphony, a theater troupe that performs across the country, twenty years later. The show slowly fills in the gaps between year one and year twenty over the course of its captivating ten episodes.

I had the chance to speak with Patel, who earned an Emmy nomination for his performance, about what spoke to him in the material, making a show about a pandemic during a pandemic, and what it was like to work opposite the very talented Lawler.

You can watch the video above, and read below for an official summary and where to watch.
