A Conversation with Bernard Hill
Q: What is THE GRID about?
A: THE GRID is about the international pursuit of international terrorists and the successes and failures of that pursuit. I think this story brings to light the dark forces that are lurking beneath the surface of our modern society and how we deal with them - not always successfully. I don't think there are truly any winners in this international terrorists vs. counter-terrorism game. Just the world loses.
Q: Describe your character.
A: I play an MI5 agent trying to identify and locate the terrorist cells in England while trying not to cross the jurisdictional line into MI6 territory. If it looks like these terrorists are international, then it becomes a case for MI6.
Q: What do you think will attract audiences to this limited series?
A: I think this project will have huge appeal. People will be curious to see the inner-workings of terrorism and counter-terrorism. This will give them some insight.
