To celebrate the release of The Rising, the thrilling new series coming to Sky this weekend, we had the pleasure of chatting to the cast about the riveting and timely new show

The show, which airs on Sky MAX and NOWTV, takes an unorthodox perspective of crime dramas. After Neve Kelly discovers she has been murdered and, confused by her new form of existence, she is determined to find her killer; believing it is someone she knew.

Chatting to the cast, including Clara Rugaard (Neve), Matthew McNulty (Tom), Emily Taaffe (Maria), Alex Lanipekun (Daniel), Nenda Neururer (Alex) and Solly McLeod (Joe), we spoke about the lure of the show and its unique approach to this kind of thriller series, portraying a character for a longer period of time and the acting challenges of such a role, as well the importance of shining a light on the shocking rise in cases in violence towards women. The show had its premiere at this year’s Berlin Film Festival ahead of its UK transmission.

The Rising begins on Sky MAX and NOWTV on April 22nd.
