Chris Conner is a stage and screen actor who can currently be seen as Poe in Netflix's SciFi series Altered Carbon. Poe is a artificial intelligence the likes of which hasn't been seen on screen before. He is kind, curious, powerful, but gentle. He is a fixer who is broken. Why did Chris Conner  explore the complete works of Edgar Allen Poe to better understand how to play a near-immortal AI? Scott and Chris sit down and explore Chris's process.
