NEW Interview with Tobias Menzies from Parade   6 comments

Here is a NEW Interview with Tobias Menzies from Parade Magazine

From Parade:

Outlander star Tobias Menzies, 44, segues from his dual fictional parts as “Black Jack” and Frank Randall on the hit Starz series to the role of real-life British naval officer James Fitzjames in The Terror (March 26 on AMC). The new 10-episode series is about a mid-1800s expedition that sailed into uncharted waters in search of the treacherous Northwest Passage to the Pacific Ocean, as ships become frozen in the ice and the crew is menaced by a monstrous predator.

More after the jump!

How much of The Terror is based on fact?
A huge amount. The script is woven together from Dan Simmons’ fictionalized novel about the expedition and the real naval mystery from 1845. The Franklin Expedition was the most highly equipped, expensive expedition of the day. Everyone was lost and the boats disappeared. It was one of the great, early Victorian naval failures

Just recently, the ships were found.
They found the Erebus, the flagship, in 2014; in summer 2016, they found the Terror. Now we’ll start to get a lot more information as they salvage the two wrecks.

Who was James Fitzjames?
He was a naval hero, an example of the hubris of Victorian colonialism. While on the expedition, he has all that stripped away and finds out who he really is.

  2. Great interview. Tobias Menzies is a brilliant actor – his work as Jack/Frank Randall was amazing. I had been waiting to see “The Terror” on AMC, Hasn’t come to Canadian TV I think. Thank you for sharing

  3. I agree Tobias Menzies is an incredible actor. He played his 2 characters in Outlander to perfection. Although I hated Black Jack I must admit Tobias was outstanding in that character. I do hope “The Terror” comes to Canada. If it does, for sure I’ll be watching it too. I’m sure he’ll be great as he was in Outlander.

  4. I did not realize the series was happening I never saw adds but when I saw on twitter Tobias Menzies and Serin Hins were in it I jumped on demand fast as I could called my husband and told him to get home early as he could cause we have to see this. I’m totally taken with Tobias but I have been infatuated with Serin Hinds forever since the first time I saw him I can’t wait till tonight. I miss my Outlander SoooooooooBadly

    • Hi Ann: I miss Outlander too – can hardly wait till September rolls around and Season 4 (Drums of Autumn) will start. I love Seasons 1, 2 and 3 of Outlander and am an obsessed fan as well. Let us all know what you think of “The Terror”.
