Steven Spielberg’s “Falling Skies” is about to reach the zenith of its final season and the series is pulling no stops for its closure. The upcoming episode entitled “Stalag 14th Virginia” will be directed by no one else but Spielberg’s favorite TV son, Noah Wyle.
Wyles, who plays the former history professor turned 2nd Mass Commander Tom Mason of the tv series, revealed to Blastr his experience of directing himself on the television screen.
“I was really heavy in the one I directed, which sounds tricky. But when you’ve been on sets for 20-some-odd years, you should have a pretty good sense of working for the camera and where the energy flow of a scene is supposed to go,” the 44-year-old actor said.
Wyle also added that a protagonist character like Tom Mason pushes the energy around the room. He was quick to point that due to the pretty heavy part in the episode before, he had to do a lot of prep and responsibilities.
“I felt like I needed every piece of information I ever learned to do it. It was tremendously exciting, a head-turning experience, and I can’t wait to do it again,” the former ER dramas series actor stated. He also revealed that he had called former ER colleague Eriq La Salle for an advice on directing duties.
The upcoming episode of “Falling Skies” titled “Stalag 14 Virginia” will set everyone in disbelief as Weaver (Will Patton) learns a reality that will put him at a crossroads to a paramount plight in this post-apocalyptic drama. Connor Jessup (Ben Mason) who encounters quite a debacle on this episode as the commander’s son gives his own account in an interview with Three If By Space and why this is his favorite episode.
“I would say this next episode is would be because it’s the most active for Ben. Of course I am excited for everyone to see the finale because it’s the finale of the show,” Jessup confirmed in an episode wherein he and two more main characters will be put on a firing squad.
Spielberg, the executive producer for “Falling Skies” will set himself back again on the big screen with “Bridge of Spies”as reported by Variety.
“Falling Skies” is aired on TNT.
