    Paapa Essiedu ... Talks The Lazarus Project

    Paapa Essiedu ... Talks The Lazarus Project

    BAFTA-nominated actor Paapa Essiedu's latest role is in the Sky Original drama The Lazarus Project. Written by Joe Barton (Giri/Haji).
    Paapa plays George, an app developer who wakes up reliving a day from the past. Soon after he meets Archie who recruits him to a secret organisation working on preventing world ending catastrophes via time travel. All good for George until he loses a loved one and has to decide what's worth more - saving his loved one or saving humnaity.
    We discuss with Paapa, whether sci-fi projects are the manual to surviving real world events and his pending trip to Glastonbury.
    The Lazarus Project is available to watch on https://www.sky.com/watch/the-lazarus-project (Sky Max) and https://www.nowtv.com/watch/the-lazarus-project/iYEQZ1vXy2NqkVQfmdrjrE?DCMP=KNC-Genericandds_ag=The+Lazarus+Project+-+Watch+-+Exactandds_kwid=p71670406402andgclid=Cj0KCQjwtvqVBhCVARIsAFUxcRtBfuM5V76xovrLqH80BpqyPOHy49aLKm0kgVaTMipoi_KRTwzYspgaAt8eEALw_wcBandgclsrc=aw.dsandnclid=FPBU1aBZAQ9d6uC6Wq6YEmyXUblwLUEBxlNhYdCiA0BzDs_VqV72xYbcUR-2OEAI (Now TV)
