The Diplomat on Netflix Premiere in NYC

All the celebs were out in New York City to celebrate the new Netflix drama, “The Diplomat”. Keri Russell, Rufus Sewell, show runner Debora Cahn and other cast members joined the red carpet to promote the new political drama. “The Diplomat” follows Kate Wyler, played by Keri Russell, as she steps into her new role as US Ambassador to the UK. She’s also married to a fellow diplomat, played by Rufus Sewell. Kate’s diplomatic skills are put to the test as she tries to navigate the complex relationship between different countries as talk of war begins to brew. The series also starring David Gyasi, Ali Ahn, Rory Kinnear, and Ato Essandoh, with Russell also serving as an executive producer on the show. Lauren Conlin hit the red carpet and chatted with the stars of the show; they make a compelling case on why you must watch this show (without your cell phone)!

Lauren Conlin:

I have not seen the show yet. I know that you play Keri Russell’s husband, but I’m going to ask you, are you secretly villainous?

Rufus Sewell:

No, I’m not secretly villainous. I’m actually, I mean, yeah, he’s a complicated guy, but no. I mean, he’s up to his tricks. He might be a little bit naughty.

Lauren Conlin:

Say naughty again.

Rufus Sewell:

He’s a very naughty boy. No, he’s quite a rich chara, they’re all very rich characters and he’s good. I wouldn’t say-

Keri Russell:

It’s really Debora Cahn, though. I mean, this is what she does really well. It’s not one thing, it’s not just a dramatic political intrigue show. It’s a complicated marriage show, and then it gets a little wacky at times.

Lauren Conlin:

I’m just so happy that you’re so nice and humble and, I literally loved you since Felicity, the Mickey Mouse Club, this is amazing to me. My life is made.

Keri Russell:

Oh, you’re very kind. You’re very kind.

Lauren Conlin:

The show as a whole, give me a 20 second pitch on why people should watch it. There’s a lot on Netflix right now.

Ato Essandoh:

Yeah, it is sexy, it is fun, it is smart. It’s a show that you have to pay attention to, so you can’t be like washing the dishes while you’re watching this show. You really got to pay attention to this show and it’s topical. It’s like what’s going on in the world right now and so it’s one of those things that I love. I love a good, smart show to watch.
