Netflix’s ‘Living with Yourself,’ a Double Dose of Paul Rudd

LONDON – Paul Rudd plays the main character of “Living with Yourself,” a new Netflix comedy where the American actor performs two versions of the same person and faces the challenge of having to act with himself.

“The technical side of it was something that we did some tests before we started filming and settled down this idea that I would record the lines as both characters,” Paul Rudd told EFE in an interview in London.

The TV series, created by double Emmy Award winner Timothy Greenberg, and directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (“Little Miss Sunshine” and “The Battle of the Sexes”), tells the story of Miles Elliot (Rudd), a publicist who is desperately attempting to overtake a major crisis.

Elliot undergoes a new treatment in a spa where he is told he will become a better person, but when he awakes he discovers that he has been cloned and replaced by a new improved version of himself.

Miles has to face living with an unwanted clone while trying to regain control of his relationship, his career, and his identity.

Rudd recalled that he used an earphone through which he could hear his responses during the filming.

“I would act like I was standing opposite, but there was nobody there,” the actor said.

“It was super weird. It was strange (...) I am the only one here hearing myself so I would imagine it was strange for anyone on set, it would look like a crazy person.”

Actress Aisling Bea, who plays Kate Elliot (Miles’ wife) in the Netflix comedy, said that during the process of creating her character, she felt connected with several themes, “in particular the journey of being pregnant.”

Although the role of the Irish comedian doesn’t suffer the existential crisis of her spouse, she carries on her back the mourning for several failed pregnancies.

“It’s an incredibly lonely place if you and your partner have this space between you, so that part of the story was a real... that’s my heartstring getting pulled at,” Bea pointed out.

Both actors felt assured that the spectators will enjoy and connect with the TV series as much as they did.

The eight episodes of “Living with Yourself” will be available on Netflix on October 18.
