"What's extraordinary for me about this love story, is that in many ways it's a fantasy of love at
first sight, it's sort of Romeo and Juliet, and yes Sebastian and now Abi has managed to ground it
in something so beautifully real. What is wonderful being able to do this over two 90-minute
episodes, is being able to let this tension build in an unspoken way." -Eddie Redmayne
"I think it's a connection of two souls. Stephen comes from this life of restraint. His world
has not been a great one prior to arriving in Amiens, and in some ways he sees her in this
new environment, and yet she is also restrained and restricted."
"...it is something that has been so repressed and hidden, so finally, when they
come to that red room, everything that has been held back, kind of releases..."
