Tony nominee Bill Nighy (Skylight), Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, and The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln, who starred together in Blue/Orange at the National Theatre in 2000 and then appeared together in the 2003 film Love, Actually, will reunite for conversation in the May 13 episode.
Tony Award winner Sophie Okonedo (A Raisin in the Sun) visits with National Theatre Associate Dominic Cooke on May 20, and the May 27 episode will feature newly appointed Deputy Artistic Director of the National Theatre Clint Dyer with writer, recording artist, and spoken word performer Kae Tempest.

Those episodes feature Oscar winner Olivia Colman and Rufus Norris, stars of the recent NT Romeo and Juliet film Jessie Buckley and Josh O’Connor, and Adrian Lester and Meera Syal.
