Keri Russell and Rufus Sewell

Netflix’s “The Diplomat” from showrunner Deborah Cahn (“Homeland,” “Fosse/Verdon”) is nail-biting intrigue at its finest.  Keri Russell is Kate Wyler, the new United States ambassador to the United Kingdom, who must learn to navigate international crises while trying to save her marriage with fellow career diplomat Hal Wyler (Rufus Sewell).

I had a great time talking to David about the film, his role, and the series’ themes.

Ali Ahn and Ato Essandoh were in high spirits when I spoke to them virtually for Netflix’s “The Diplomat.”  In the series, Ali is Eidra Park, the CIA Station Chief, while Ato is Stuart Heyford, the Deputy chief of mission.
