HEAR: Jack Reynor Chats “The Peripheral” On Prime Video


Jack Reynor stars in Prime Video’s new sci-fi drama series The Peripheral.

Now available in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide, the new drama series from Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan’s Kilter Films is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by William Gibson  

Sing Street star Reynor speaks to me about the new show, being thrust into worldwide fame at just 21 years old and why he will never swap beautiful Blessington for the Hollywood Hills.

The Peripheral follows Flynne Fisher (Chloë Grace Moretz) who lives in the rural American South, working at the local 3D printing shop, while earning much needed extra money playing VR games for rich people.  One night she dons a headset and finds herself in futuristic London—a sleek and mysterious world, alluringly different from her own hardscrabble existence.  But this isn’t like any game she’s ever played before:  Flynne begins to realize it isn’t virtual reality… it’s real.  Someone in London, seventy years in the future, has found a way to open a door to Flynne’s world.  And as utterly beguiling as London is… it’s also dangerous.  As Flynne searches to discover who has connected their worlds, and for what purpose, her presence here sets dangerous forces into motion…forces intent on destroying Flynne and her family in her own world. The Peripheral is master storyteller William Gibson’s dazzling, hallucinatory glimpse into the fate of mankind — and what lies beyond.
