Exclusive: Tobias Menzies on new TV series The Terror, from producer Ridley Scott

Having starred in Game of Thrones, actor Tobias Menzies returns yet again to the smaller screen, this time with a starring role in The Terror – executively produced by Ridley Scott.

Telling the true story of a ship that sails into unchartered territory, Menzies explains what it was about this project, and role, that how enticing it is to have a name like Scott’s attached to the production. On that note, he speaks about the joy in collaborating with Jared Harris and Ciaran Hinds, while he explains how a set is, in some ways, similar to an expedition a navy crew would embark on.

Menzies then discusses how great it is for actors to be given such scope to explore a character when making a TV series, and whether he can enjoy The Terror as an audience member would. This leads on to a quick chat about Game of Thrones

‘The Terror’: Inside the Making of That Staggering, Series-Altering Carnival Sequence

‘The Terror’: Inside the Making of That Staggering, Series-Altering Carnival Sequence
[Editor’s note: The following interviews contain spoilers for “The Terror” Episode 6, “A Mercy.”]

Life on “The Terror” has not been a simple one for the members of the title vessel. The polar freeze, dwindling rations, and a looming four-legged menace have all conspired to make this a growing, drawn-out nightmare for everyone on screen.

But this week’s episode, “A Mercy,” brought the equally frightening idea that these men’s biggest enemy may very well be themselves.

Organized in part by the newly in-command Fitzjames (Tobias Menzies) to lighten the spirits of the crew, a night of frivolity is one big good intention paving the way for the hellish 800-mile trek to potential safety. After finding out that the men very well may be doomed before they even take a single step, Dr. Stanley (Alistair Petrie) takes it upon himself to end an ill-fated trip before it even begins. A night of merry-making and reverie quickly becomes a

Emmy spotlight: Tobias Menzies deserves a farewell nomination for ‘Outlander’ before donning ‘The Crown’

Emmy spotlight: Tobias Menzies deserves a farewell nomination for ‘Outlander’ before donning ‘The Crown’
Tobias Menzies deserves a goodbye Emmy nomination for Best Drama Guest Actor for his last season of “Outlander.” Last fall Menzies ended his three-year run in the time-travel romance, in which he played dual roles as 18th century antagonist Black Jack and his 20th century descendant Frank Randall, the first husband of Claire (Caitriona Balfe). And the timing for Menzies could be just right since it was recently announced that he will be taking over the role of Prince Philip on “The Crown” from Matt Smith in its upcoming third season.

If you’re not familiar with Menzies by name you probably recognize his face as the character actor has worked in a number of award-winning shows. He’s appeared in the dramas “Rome” and “Game of Thrones” as well as longform programs “Black Mirror,” “The Honorable Woman” and “The Night Manager.” Menzies can also bring the funny as he

AMC’s ‘The Terror’ Showrunners Really, Really Want You to ‘Fact Check’ Them – Seriously

  • The Wrap
AMC’s new drama “The Terror” is a series that was constructed for you to pull apart.

Seriously, co-showrunners David Kajganich and Soo Hugh told the TheWrap they want nothing more than for you to “fact check” their historical horror, which has quickly caught the attention of fans and critics alike since it premiered last month.

“This show is absolutely built for that,” Kajganich told TheWrap in a recent interview. “There is a lot more going on in the show at any given moment, in any given scene, than people will realize watching it the first time. You know, things that seem completely innocuous, objects that seem completely innocuous, lines of dialogue that seem completely innocuous in the scene they happen in, become of major importance later.”

Also Read: 'The Terror': Ciarán Hinds Is Not Having This Rescue Party Nonsense (Exclusive Video)

Based on Dan Simmons’ 2007 novel of the same name, the Ridley Scott-produced series is set in the Canadian Arctic in the 1800s, and is a fictionalized account of a British expedition that becomes stuck in the ice. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the crew — which includes Jared Harris as Captain Francis Crozier, Ciarán Hinds as Sir John Franklin, and Tobias Menzies as Captain James Fitzjames — was haunted by a horrifying creature.

Because “The Terror” can be placed in both the historical and supernatural categories, Kajganich and Hugh want viewers to go forth and theorize.

“There are people who are starting to pick up on that,” Kajganich said. “And also people who are starting to pick up on the fact that the show has a very strange sense of humor, and that it is Ok to laugh at the show at times. So the people who are starting to tune into those elements of the show are really starting to already realize that the show is inviting them to do that. And the show is encouraging and rewarding them for doing that. So, yeah, every time I look online, I’m hoping for one more comment or post or tweet that is picking the show apart — because we want people to. There is so much there to dig into. So we’re just thrilled when people do it.”

“It’s also been nice to see the fans dig into the real life history element, which for Dave and I, just tells you that history is fascinating,” Hugh added. “And so just to see the ripple effect on social media and with various news outlets, people saying, ‘Wait, what really happened? I want to go back and start googling about the expedition. I’m going to read this book, I’m going to read this book’ — that’s great.”

“‘Cause not only do we want fanboys and fangirls to look at all the hidden Easter eggs in our show, but we also want them to dive back and go back to the historical narrative. ‘Cause fact check that — please!” she said, laughing. “We love that kind of stuff.”

The Terror” is executive produced by Kajganich and Hugh, along with Scott, David W. Zuker (“The Good Wife”), Alexandra Milchan (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Scott Lambert (“Jane Got a Gun”) and Guymon Casady (“Game of Thrones”).

‘The Crown’ Season 3: Everything We Know About the New Era of Queen Elizabeth on Netflix

‘The Crown’ Season 3: Everything We Know About the New Era of Queen Elizabeth on Netflix
Fans of “The Crown” have likely come to appreciate the Netflix drama for different reasons. Some are drawn to the illicit romance contained within the confines of royal life. Others might tune in for the relationship drama, of the marital ups and downs behind two of the most famous people alive. The impeccable period details and costumes might be enough to snag some viewers.

Even though details are still scarce about what “The Crown” Season 3 will offer when it returns to Netflix at some point in the near future, it’s also not hard to believe that all of those components will still be there. Some notable changes are coming to this most prestige-y of prestige dramas, but the core of the show will most likely persist.

As Anglophiles, history buffs, and fans of soapy biodrama await the return of “The Crown,” we’ve assembled some of the key details

Prince Philip's Sister Cecilie Tragically Died in a Plane Crash While Giving Birth

British royal family patriarch Prince Philip, 96, has lived a long and full life. He married Queen Elizabeth in 1947 and has since welcomed four children, eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.

Give a Warm Royal Welcome to The Crown's Next Prince Philip: Tobias Menzies

You might want to sit down on the nearest throne, because The Crown has finally found its new Prince Philip: Tobias Menzies. Netflix's royal drama has been busy replacing the current cast with actors who are a little bit older to reflect the passage of time on the show, and while Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret's replacements had been found, the lucky man tasked with taking over Matt Smith's role remained a mystery for quite some time.

At first rumors swirled that Avengers: Infinity War actor Paul Bettany was in line to replace Smith as Prince Philip for seasons three and four, but it looks like Netflix ended up going with Menzies. The 44-year-old British actor played Frank and Jack Randall on the first three seasons of Outlander, and is currently starring in Ridley Scott's The Terror on AMC.
