Neil Gaiman‘s ‘Good Omens‘ has taken Amazon by storm and as more people are able to finish binge-watching it, we’re getting more details about the 6-episode miniseries! The latest comes from Michael Sheen, who shares his thoughts on both his character Aziraphale and David Tennant’s Crowley.
The actor feels that the relationship that this angel and demon have developed over the years can best be compared to The Beatles. As an angel and a demon who have become friends and prefer living among humans instead of their own kind, it is an interesting thought but one which truly makes sense after he spells it out.
According to Sheen:
“I’m more than happy being an angel. One of the interesting things about the coupling at the heart of it is how much they sort of rub off on each other a bit. They’ve been on Earth for so long now. I always sort of liken it to The Beatles. I remember reading one of The Beatles saying that part of what bonded them the most was that the four of them went through something that nobody else could understand. And that brought them kind of closer in a way. I think it’s similar with Crowley and Aziraphale, that nobody else knows what it’s like to be on Earth for thousands of years, since the Garden of Eden, and to watch humanity grow. That they’ve become connected to the world and humanity through that in a very special way. But also to each other in a very special way. So they’re just like The Beatles.”
When you put it in the perspective of being connected to one another and the rest of humanity, there is a lens you could look through and make this connection work. These two have gone through an experience that no one else has or that others could easily understand. However, I’m not sure the rest of the world might feel the same connection that these two do.
After having seen ‘Good Omens,’ would you compare these two to The Beatles or do you have another thought to the relationship between these two and humanity in mind? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
