When we anticipate conflicting invasions, we usually anticipate about abolition and despair. Arthur C. Clarke’s “Childhood’s End,” a 1953 science-fiction novel, takes a altered access — the advancing extra-terrestrials accord altruism aggregate it could anytime want, including no added pollution, violence, or alive for money. Now Showcase has acclimatized the atypical into a three-part TV miniseries, starring Mike Vogel (Under the Dome) as Ricky and Daisy Betts (Chicago Fire) as Ellie, and it premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT.
Vogel’s appearance is called as the Overlords’ (their human-bestowed name) communications adviser, and he bound starts confined as their advocate to the citizenry. Fifteen years of conflicting aphorism leads to harmony, peace, and cities lying arid as bodies abscond to a cleaner activity in the countryside. At the end of the aboriginal episode, things assume to be activity well. At atomic for the time being.
Global News chatted with Vogel and Betts about the show, and why utopia isn’t as abundant as altruism ability anticipate it is.
Global News: This is an addictive watch. Is that one of the affidavit you two active on, afterwards you had apprehend the script?Mike Vogel: I didn’t apprehend the book until added into the process, but I anticipate for me the absolute “aha!” moment was … award out how important Arthur C. Clarke’s book was in the science-fiction world, how a lot of belief were modelled on or acclimatized from “Childhood’s End.” I was on a flight and it hit me: oh God, I’d bigger not spiral this up.
The book is accounting a lot in account and metaphors, it’s not accounting in a beeline story, so Matt [Graham, biographer and controlling producer] had to ability article and still bottle the original.
Daisy Betts: Appropriate afterwards I’d apprehend the aboriginal episode, I knew it was activity to be a air-conditioned story. With that ending, you appetite to apprehend the abutting script. It’s activity to accomplish the eyewitness anticipate about a lot of things in activity and the afterlife, if there is such a thing. There are huge questions posed, and it’s abstruse and scary, in a extraordinary affectionate of way.

Even admitting your characters are in this new-found utopia, there’s this cutting activity that article is activity to go wrong, and that you can’t assurance the Overlords. While you’re declared to be admiring life, you’re consistently in fear.DB: Yeah, exactly. Alike if article or addition gives us aggregate we want, we’re consistently suspicious. What do they appetite in return? That’s the big question. Nothing comes for free. Be accurate what you ambition for. All these sayings appear to life.

It’s too acceptable to be true. Aggregate has been fixed.MV: That’s the agitation we generally had on set, and abounding times back then. It’s one of the admirable capacity of the show. It’s absolutely relatable to things activity on in the apple appropriate now. You can booty abroad violence, booty abroad sickness, actualize this utopia, and you alpha to ask, “Is that good?” Aggregate comes at a cost, and you pay the piper somewhere. It may not be appropriate away.
DB: It raises addition point, too: That one person’s abstraction of utopia is not the aforementioned as addition person’s, so how can you possibly acquisition a utopia that everybody is blessed with? There will acutely be battle borne from that, so we’re absolutely aloof cat-and-mouse for it.
MV: What I acquisition absorbing about this is the book was accounting in 1953. The alarming affair is that you fast-forward 60, 70 years and admit about the aforementioned players into the adventure and we’re about at the aforementioned place. We’re still ambidextrous with the aforementioned things. It’s apparently added accordant today than it was then. Aggregate is accident at a faster clip and added frequently. The accomplished acumen the Overlords appear in the aboriginal abode is because bodies accept accomplished light-speed biking and are about to go analyze added galaxies.
They appear bottomward and basically say, “That’s abundant appropriate there, you’ve busted your own bloom up, we’re not absolution you go advance your seed.” That should be a mirror for us: how do we accord with what’s accident in our own world?

What was it like alive with Charles Dance (Game of Thrones)? He absolutely excels in this role.MV: He’s a abhorrent actor. [Laughs] No, no, the acumen I antic is because I didn’t realize, back I apprehend the script, all my alternation with him is to a mirror in a auberge room. [Dance plays the arch Overlord, and Vogel’s appearance never absolutely sees him physically (at first).] Back you’re reading, it’s two characters. Again the day afore shooting, the administrator said to me, “You apprehend it’s aloof you in the scenes, and Charles won’t absolutely be there.” That was addition one of those “Oh crap” moments. I was afraid bodies would be apathetic of out their minds.
They piped Charles’ articulation through a little speaker, he was offstage. All you accept to do is apprehend him drag and exhale, and you angle at attention. He has a attendance alike over a speaker. That was a big get and a huge additional to accept him be a allotment of the project.
The anxiety was boxy to get through. The aboriginal hour was like cat-and-mouse for the added shoe to drop.DB: It’s a apathetic burn, and you don’t apperceive if you appetite to go about the corner. It’s eerily perfect.
MV: And again you see what’s cat-and-mouse on the added ancillary of the aperture … who the Overlords are. You won’t be able to abide affability in for the additional night.
Childhood’s End premieres on Monday, Dec. 14 at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT on Showcase. The miniseries will be apparent in a 3-part accident on Dec. 14, 15, and 16.
