Paapa Essiedu’s Scripts Give Him Weird Dreams

The Ambitious and Dream-Inducing World of ‘The Lazarus Project’

In the upcoming segment of EcoReporter, we delve into the strange dreams experienced by actor Paapa Essiedu while working on the sci-fi drama ‘The Lazarus Project’. Essiedu, who plays the role of George in the show, revealed that learning his lines before going to bed has a profound effect on his subconscious mind.

When asked about his dreams, Essiedu shared, “I have really weird dreams and it’s hard not to when you’re imaginatively in the world. There’s a point in the first episode where we’re 52 three-week loops in, and trying to get into the psychology of what it’s like, it’s hard not for that to affect your subconscious. That’s the way I work.”

The actor admires the ambition of ‘The Lazarus Project’ and appreciates the challenge it presents to performers. Showrunner Joe Barton pushes the actors to their limits, requiring them to fully immerse themselves in the bold concept of the show. Essiedu believes that going all-in is necessary for the success of the series, stating, “You can’t do it by halves. Even if the mechanics of making it happen can have a sense of repetition, that’s kind of a metaphor for what’s being played with in the story anyway. So it’s a workout, but in a good way.”

‘The Lazarus Project’ offers a unique and thought-provoking exploration of time loops and the psychological impact they can have. Essiedu’s dreams reflect the immersive nature of the show, where the lines between reality and fiction blur. As EcoReporter, we appreciate the ambition of such projects that challenge conventional storytelling and engage audiences in new ways.
