EGW: On a scale of 1 to Eva Green, how intense is the episode?

James Hawes: Well I guess you, the audience, must decide. But I’m pretty confident we’re talking a 10 on the intensity scale…

EGW: Could you share any production tidbit with us on directing Eva?

JH: What you need to know is that Eva is the most extraordinarily committed and exciting of actors. She throws herself into scenes to point of terrifying the director + crew who are part of the world she is creating. People had to look away, even on set.

EGW: Thank you for such high praises for Ms. Green! We couldn’t be any prouder of her! We are very much looking forward to Possession! We did hear the very same thing from cast and crew of episode 2 (Séance) and episode 5 (Closer Than Sisters)! Filming those (since we cannot spoil!) scenes must have been surreal and it must have been a delight for you as a director! Editing the episodes must have been enjoyable!

JH: Yes. And wait til you see Josh, Harry, Danny and Tim opposite her in this one.

EGW: Will you be livetweeting with us? It will be interesting to hear your thoughts on each scene as a director

JH: In which time zone??

EGW: Original US Showtime airing? 10PM ET, Sunday. Or will you be doing one a week later (UK Sky Atlantic airing)? It’s usually @reevecarney who tweets with us during US. It would be awesome if you could too. Your POV will be interesting!

JH: That would require me to be awake at 3am…well…just maybe. Let’s see what @SHO_Penny thinks… @reevecarney Not sure you will have breath to tweet with during this episode…

EGW: Ha! You are great in making the fans worry with this tweet, sir. Some are already ordering oxygen tanks based on the previews alone!
