  5. What a fantastic interview and the passion the actors have even 10 years post a movie/series project is so genuine and intense. Thanks again for taking the time to coordinate schedules and post these interviews with both the Veterans of Easy and the actors - what a bond they have. Thanks Nightmare, Robin and Ross for providing the platform to continue the amazing stories of these fine men. I've listened to almost all the interviews, own the series, read 2 of the books and now am addicted all over again - A decade later! Thank YOU!!

  8. Just found these interviews and loved to hear the cast's takes on this wonderful work: thanks!
    For me the best episode is Hank's directed, and besides the beautiful editing and amazing cinematography, the shot that remains is the last one as they reach Bastogne at night and Winter stands in the middle of the road watching all his guys marching besides him on to battle. Amazing.

  9. Lewis played a tremendous role...brought it home. Made it real. Love his acting...Band of Brothers never gets old. I watch it all the time. I did my own research on the real vets and learned about John Basilone...someone I would never have learned about had I not saw Band of Brothers. The actors did such an amazing job, just intrigued me beyond watching the show. I have such gratitude for veterans now after watching Band of Brothers.
    Thanks for doing the interviews
