Interview With The Cast Of FX’s ‘ARCHER’

At San Diego Comic Con last week, I was lucky enough to get the chance to interview the cast of FX’s Archer. It was insanely hard to contain my fangirl ways when interviewing this amazing cast but I somehow managed (save for asking Aisha Tyler for a selfie which she happily obliged) and got to listen to these awesome people talk about the show and their characters.

They weren’t allowed to reveal much about the upcoming season, but we got teased that this season will be ‘different’. We did get to hear their thoughts on questions like favorite character moments, their experiences at this years convention and more. I was shocked to find out that some of if not all of the cast members actually sound like their respective characters, it literally blew my mind to hear them speaking and know they weren’t putting on a voice. It was magical.

My favorite part of the interview with them was getting to briefly hear Aisha’s advice on kids and people in general who are too afraid to show their geeky side.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get to H. Jon Benjamin and Jessica Walter due to short time and the Bob’s Burgers panel that was happening almost simultaneously but I did get the rest of the cast!

Just to preface these interviews, you can barely hear us asking the questions because it was so loud but I did manage to jot down the gist of everyone’s questions so listed underneath the audio file will be bullet points with everyone’s questions so that when you hear them talking you know what they’re referring to. Questions are in order!
