Last Updated on February 23, 2023

I’ve long been a fan of the brilliant work of Vincent Cassel. The legendary actor has proven fantastic in films like Black Swan, Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1, Mesrine: Killer Instinct, Irreversible, Eastern Promises, and so much more. And now, he takes on the role of the Stephen Hopkins-directed six-episode thriller Liaison. The upcoming series premieres on Apple TV this Friday and also features the terrific Eva Green, Daniel Francis, Lyna Dubarry, and more. And yes, the performances here are all terrific, and you can’t ask for a better couple than Green and Cassel to bring it all to life.

Interviewing Vincent Cassel is an absolute treat. While you may expect the actor to be intense, he is one of the warmest and most charming guys to talk with. Having had the pleasure of speaking to him in the past, I was thrilled to talk about his latest project. And yes, he’s exceptional here. He discussed working with Ms. Eva Green and, of course, the series director, Stephen Hopkins, the man behind a bunch of Best Movie You Never Saw faves here at JoBlo such as Judgement Night. And with an executive producer credit, he opened up about how this series came to be. Aside from being a phenomenal talent, Mr. Cassel brings on the charm every single time. Make a date with Liaison this Friday on Apple TV.

The show has the following synopsis: Two agents – and former lovers – must work together to combat international cyber attacks threatening the UK while also confronting the buried secrets of their destructive relationship.
