Interview with Jeremy Davies (Daniel Faraday)
As the science guy, Faraday has to tackle these really heady themes and dense blocks of exposition, explaining quantum physics to his fellow survivors (and the audience). You make it look easy. Has it been a lot of work to whip out that dialogue so smoothly?
I can say that one key part of my background is that as far as I can remember I have always been drawn to surrounding myself with people who are far more experienced and knowledgeable about a lot of different things. So I have been lucky to spend a lot of time with people, some scientists and doctors, who are much more accomplished in a lot of different areas. I've been privy to a lot of four-dimensional, high-speed conversations about this kind of science and concepts, so that helped me in order to explain these things. It's one thing for two scientists to communicate with each other, as there can be a great shorthand because there's a lot that's understood already. But when you're communicating with someone who is not a physicist, like with Sawyer in the earlier episodes, you have to find a way to illuminate these very complex ideas to someone else. I've had a lot of experience with that because I've spent a lot of time with much smarter people and I'd ask a lot of questions and they've found really creative ways of explaining some complex ideas to me, so that helped me quite a bit. Plus, I've always been fascinated in communication in general so that really helped as well.
What has been the greatest satisfaction in bringing Daniel Faraday to life?
One of the greatest beauties is that even if you are part of the show, you are constantly forced to renegotiate your perception, expectations, and assumptions about the characters. I love that. What I really appreciate most about Faraday is his ability to put the undiscovered fronts of science into the world. To be part of that is pretty exciting. Every scientist needs to be able to ask questions without being censored so it's nice to be a part of this creation of theirs that in a way will help accelerate science in that way...
