TV Fact #247 – June 28th, 2015:

During rehearsals for the new British science fiction show “Humans” (2015-Present), based on the award-winning Swedish science fiction drama “Real Humans” (2012-2013), actress Gemma Chan, who played the “synth” (A type of human-like robot) character Anita, and her fellow robot actors were sent to a “synth school” run by the show’s choreographer, in a bid to rid themselves of any human physical gestures and become convincing synths. “It was about stripping back any physical tics you naturally incorporate into performance,” explains Chan. Chan also added that it was, as she put it, a “relief to go home and slouch” after a day on set.

The overall production seemed to be a physical hassle for many…even the human characters. Actress Katherine Parkinson, who plays the character Laura Hawkins, began filming six weeks after giving birth to her second child. Her part in the series was filmed on 10 separate days, between 10 days rest.

So, long story short, every one was a trooper for this series.
