“I was going to get a few weeks off, but I had a huge idea in my head, so I thought ‘why not?'” actor and writer Chris Nothman tells the story of how he and fellow “Cosmic” star Josh Radnor first met in “The Shape Of Water,” a movie directed by Ridley Scott and starring Brad Pitt.
The story goes something like this: “When I first met Josh Radner, he was playing a character called Chris, who’s a little guy, and he’s kind of the kind of guy who is always on the run, always hiding.
He’s got a little secret he’s hiding from everyone, and it’s about his little secret.
And so we had this little moment of a moment, and then we started talking and I said, ‘you know, maybe you can play a little more of a lead role.'”
And so it’s really about how you approach a role, how you think about the role and how you play it.
“I think that’s the thing I really love about being in a movie like this, because it’s a big, big world, and you’re so immersed in the characters that you can see the bigger picture.
And I’m sure it’s going to take some time to get used to, because you’re going to be in that world for so long, but it’s fun, and there’s so much more to it than just the one movie.”
And there’s even more behind-doors, as Radnor tells the tale of his early days on the set of “Cosmos” in his own words.
“We were shooting on set for three weeks in April of ’93.
The first day, the day we had to do a special, we went to the kitchen, we brought our dinner and we had a nice little picnic,” he says.
“It was the first time we were actually eating, because that’s when we got really good.
We had no food.
And we got up and went to sleep, and we woke up and it was the best meal of my life, and I’ve never had anything like that.
And then, of course, I got to go to the shower and shower my hair.”
Radnor recalls that, at first, he felt a bit of a pressure.
“And then I just found out later that there was this little little group of kids on set, who were wearing their suits. “
And they were like, ‘Oh, this is our little secret, this has to be our secret, it’s so exciting, we’ve got to be really secretive, and don’t talk about it, because then we’ll be out of luck.'” “

The experience of being on set is “not like being on an airplane or something,” Radnor says.
It’s very different.
“You’re in the same environment, so there’s no pressure.
And the actors who are on set are just so excited about what they’re doing, and they’re just having fun.
They’re just excited to be doing it, and just have a good time.”
So, for Radnor, it was a chance to reconnect with the characters he created on “Cosmo.”
And he says he “loved it.”
“The best part of it is that they were really great actors and they had a good vibe about it.
It was kind of a good experience, you could tell that they wanted to get out there and do it,” he said.
And that’s what it was all about, I guess, was being in that moment. “
The guys who were doing it were all super happy, and the girls were really happy, too.
And that’s what it was all about, I guess, was being in that moment.
I was really, really happy.
I had such fun.”
