Exclusive: ‘Atlantis’ star wants Matt Smith to guest star

Posted Filed under

Emms, who plays Pythagoras, told CultBox in our exclusive interview: “We’d love to have someone like Matt Smith come in.”

Discussing which famous character he’d like Smith too play in Atlantis, he added: “I know we were all wondering if they’re going to do the Icarus story at some point, he’d be brilliant as Icarus.”

In Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of Daedalus – played by Robert Lindsay in Atlantis – who flies too close to the sun wearing wings that his father has made from feathers and wax, causing the wax to melt and him to fall into the sea, where he drowns.

Emms also commented that he’d like Broadchurch‘s Olivia Colman to guest star in the show: “And obviously anyone wants Olivia Colman in everything! I don’t think she’d come and do it though!”

Series 1 of Atlantis is released on DVD and Blu-ray this week.
