However, Paul and Sophie quickly discover that J.W. Wells & Co is not at all what it seems and their employers are anything but conventional…

Ahead of The Portable Door‘s release, our sister site TV Week got the chance to speak with cast members Sam Neill, Patrick Gibson, Miranda Otto and Sophie Wilde.

Read on to see what they had to say as well as find out the entire cast of The Portable Door and where you may know them from.

Patrick Gibson plays Paul Carpenter in The Portable Door. You may recognise Patrick from his previous roles in Tolkien, Shadow and Bone and The OA.

Patrick shared with TV Week his favourite moment from filming The Portable Door: the first time he saw the film’s sets.

“I remember the first time Jeff [Jeffrey Walker, director of The Portable Door] showed me around the sets and we got to see all the stuff; there’s so little CGI [in The Portable Door], it was all right there in front of us. So yeah, the first time seeing J.W. Wells’ office and all that was pretty special,” Patrick said.

Patrick also shared what it was like working with Hollywood heavyweights Christoph Waltz and Sam Neill.

“So insane. It’s such a dream to work with people like that… They were just the best and so inspiring.”

Sophie Wilde

Sophie Wilde plays Sophie Pettingel in The Portable Door. A relatively new actress, you may recognise Sophie from Eden, You Don’t Know Me and Talk To Me.

Sophie shared with TV Week that working with Sam Neill was “crazy” and he’s “the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet!”

She also revealed where she would go if she had access to a portable door like the one in the film. “I would get it to the Louvre, at like, 12pm. And I would go with a bottle of wine and look at some art. Like, look at the Mona Lisa and drink a glass of red wine,” Sophie said.

Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz, best known for his iconic roles in Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained and No Time To Die, stars in The Portable Door as Humphrey Wells.

Christoph’s character is the unpredictable CEO of J.W. Wells & Co, and early reviews of The Portable Door have already praised the actor for his incredible performance.

When speaking with TV Week, Sam revealed where he would go if he had access to a portable door like the one in the film.

“My farm and my pig would be there to meet me,” Sam said.

Sam also shared what his The Portable Door character, Dennis Tanner, is like.

“It’s sort of like me on steroids. Ridiculous. I’m pretty ridiculous; he’s very ridiculous.”

Miranda Otto

Miranda shared with TV Week what it was like working on The Portable Door with both Christoph Waltz and Sam Neill, and said:

“Sam is such a hoot to work with and he got so into it and he set such a great tone [for the film]… And Christoph’s amazing. I was so excited to work with him.”
