This is the first time people will be seeing you on American television. You’d previously done a pilot, but that didn’t get picked up. Were you looking to get involved with TV projects, and are you looking to do more of that?
BARNES: It’s something that I had been hesitant about, a few years ago. But, I’m always a bit slow to catch on to trends. Even when I was at school, I was never the first one to catch on to what was happening. For example, I’ve only just gotten onto Facebook, and that’s 10 years late. It’s a good example of how far behind I am. I love television. I’m a huge Netflix-type binger of shows, and I get very, very invested. I was invested in just reading the script for this, so you can imagine what I’m like when I’ve got access to 22 episodes at one time. It was absolutely something I thought would be very cool, but you think about it differently because you have to really love the character in order to spend that amount of time with them and really believe in them. So, I’m absolutely open to working in any medium. I’ve spent six or seven months on plays before, which very few people see. But I think it’s very exciting that I’m on an American television for is playing one of the Founding Fathers of the country. That’s a good step forward for me. I’m actually weirdly more excited about this being on people’s televisions than I am about a film coming out, which people have to go to see, and make a choice to go and see. Obviously, they have the choice to watch that particular channel or not, but at the same time, I am very excited about it because, even if their televisions are off, I know it’s playing. There’s something quite exciting about that, I suppose because it’s fresh and different for me.
