We were joined on the Popternative show by Australian actor Connor Gosatti who plays Simon in the new Netflix series Resident Evil, which premiered on July 14 with all 8 episodes. Based off the successful horror franchise by the same name, the series is split between two timelines: New Raccoon City in 2022, which was the year the deadly T-virus caused a global zombie apocalypse, and 14 years later in 2036 London.
Resident Evil synopsis
Year 2036 – 14 years after the spread of Joy caused so much pain, Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by the blood-thirsty infected and mind-shattering creatures. In this absolute carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections to the sinister Umbrella Corporation but mostly by what happened to her sister, Billie.
The series also stars Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels), Lance Reddick (John Wick), Tamara Smart (The Worst Witch), Siena Agudong (No Good Nick), Adeline Rudolph (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Paola Nuñez (The Son), Ahad Raza Mir (Hum Tum) and Turlough Convery (Saint Maud).
In our interview with Connor, we discuss the large horror component of Netflix’s Resident Evil and what his thoughts were when he got to see the episodes after filming. Connor tells us that he’s a big fan of the franchise and that it is exciting to be part of something which is taking it into a new direction.
