Q:What was your first reaction when you read the pilot and also what
about the tenuous sobriety issue that may be part of the arc for your

Jonny Lee Miller: That element was a huge attraction for me. I always
feel that characters that have problems and issues to deal with are more
fun to play, especially if you’re trying to balance that with a supposed
genius for something and then make him not comfortable with that. You
know, give him an edge. It leads into the relationship that Holmes and
Watson have. That’s a plus all round for me to bring some darkness into
it and have some problems, and it’s something a little more edgy that we
don’t necessarily see too much on network television. So, I was very
happy about that.
Liu: I do think there’s an element of mystery that’s involved in
characters that are damaged and that CBS is taking a big risk for their
network to allow that to happen and to have someone who had a history in
drugs, or whatever addiction it was, and have a sober companion as well.
I think there’s something dark and it allows you to go to different
places. Watson is a character that’s hiding behind what she needs to
really look into which is her past and why she was kicked out and the
malpractice. She lost a lot of respect and her integrity. She’s actually
more insecure than she leads on and he sees through that. She’s trying
to help him but the reality is the clarity of helping him is just a
distraction for her to not look at herself.
Miller: I think audiences like to identify as well with people who are
struggling with trying to be the best people that they can. If you’ve
got someone who’s supposed to be a master detective, it’s much more
interesting to watch them struggle with that sometimes.
Liu: I think the idea of relapse is a great thing because it gives you
the opportunity to fall, and people fall all the time and they want to
see you get back up. That’s an important aspect of an actor to not just
play it straight all the time. You have an opportunity to land on your
ass and get back up.
Q:Sherlock Holmes is highly intelligent. Is that intimidating to play?
Miller: Huh? Are you saying…? Thankfully I don’t have to write it which
is good. I mean, I love the way Rob (Robert Doherty) writes and I have
the utmost confidence in him. I love his scripts. So, yeah, in a way,
it’s a really good feeling to have that behind you and to know that
you’ve got these wonderful words to say. It’s a good feeling. It’s nice
to pretend to be intelligent. Alright everyone!

I had the great opportunity to see you do both roles in Frankenstein.
Can you talk about that experience and how you prepared for two such
iconic yet different roles?
Miller: It would take us all afternoon really so I can’t do that now. It
was one of the best working professional experiences I’ve ever had in my
life. I love the theater and the chance to do really [good work]. I
guess the main thing about doing those two roles is that you inhabit the
entire play. You see it from here and you see it from there. You get to
really work in depth with another actor and share in stuff. You never
get to share like that because for it to be a success, there can be no
room for the ego, like “That’s my idea.” “I don’t like the way you’re
doing that.” There’s no one-upmanship. In the end, we were exchanging
ideas. We would borrow stuff from each other quite openly. You never get
that in the acting experience with other actors. You can get on with
people really well but you never like really share in stuff.
Q:It was a beautiful production.
Has Benedict Cumberbatch spoken to you about playing Sherlock?
[Cumberbatch plays Sherlock Holmes on the BBC version.]
Miller: Of course, I wanted to assure him that it was different enough
and he was excited for me and he was very encouraging and we discussed
it. We haven’t had a chance to get together a lot recently. It’s a
wonderful character to play and he wanted to pass that on. We discussed
that for a minute. Yeah. You know it’s a strange one.
