EW posted an interview with Inescapable co-star Joshua Jackson a few days ago, and debuted an exclusive clip of the scene when Jackson’s character first meets Alexander Siddig’s character. The clip is not embeddable, so head over to EW to see it and to read the full interview with Jackson.
“He’s a career diplomat, the character. In that scene when Paul and Adib meet, the awkwardness is born that not is all what it seems,” Jackson told EW. “I never went to drama school, so I judge my characters all the time. Paul comes from a certain family, and has had the easiest time in life. Now he’s confronted with real events. He is duplicitous. You learn some unpleasant things about the guy. Ruba’s passionate energy and excitement, and the insight she brings, given her background, was the final hook for me, doing the film.”
