Cast members John Barrowman and Bill Pullman have been launching the show’s fourth series to potential buyers at the international media event, with executive producer Julie Gardner. A new poster was also revealed at the event earlier this week.
Deadline report that Barrowman commented: “There is so much more we can do with Torchwood now having made the leap to America. It’s going to be even bigger and better. And for me on a personal level the move to America has been fucking amazing.”
Discussing Miracle Day‘s opening scene, which involves a helicopter, he added: “If we were in Wales shooting, we might not have had that, or we would have had to re-write the sequence.”
He continued: “…the audience is going to need a forklift truck to pick their jaws off the ground. The stunt work is unbelievable. I used to do quite a lot of stunts except if it was jumping off of buildings but now I’m not allowed to because of the insurance policy. I’m much more valuable in America!”
The 44-year-old actor, who first played Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who in 2005, also revealed that his character’s sexuality will not be toned down in the new series: “Jack will have his little dabblings and the audience will get exactly what they want. And I had a lot of fun doing it!”
Torchwood: Miracle Day begins on US TV channel Starz on Friday 8th July.
