The stars of Amazon Prime’s Good Omens this week walked a ‘Green’ carpet at the World Premiere in Leicester Square, London.
In attendance were David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Jon Hamm, Miranda Richardson, Josie Lawrence, Adria Ajorna alongside creator Neil Gaiman and director Douglas Mackinnon.
Guests were treated to a musical performance the show’s ‘Chattering Order of Nuns.’
Neil Gaiman said of Terry Pratchett’s ‘last request’, “Terry, who never asked anything of me in all our years of friendship wrote to me and said ‘you have to do this, you’re the only person out there who has the passion and understanding for Good Omens that I have – you have to make it into television because I want to see it before the lights go out’ I thought I had six or seven years of Terry left, but then he died, which suddenly turned [Good Omens] into his last request”
Michael Sheen on his character Aziraphale’s relationship with David Tennant’ Crawley, “One of the interesting things about the coupling [Aziraphale and Crawley] is how they rub off on each other, they’ve been on for Earth so long and them to The Beatles, nobody else knows what they’ve been through, but each other – just like The Beatles!”
Jon Hamm (Archangel Gabriel) said, “It seemed to me that there was an opportunity for [Archangel Gabriel] to portray this guy as the boss that everyone has, but everyone hates – who is constantly smiling and telling you ‘great job,’ while also subconsciously saying ‘you’re terrible.”
