Video Interview: Chris Wood Previews Containment Video Interview: Chris Wood Previews Containment
On-set interview with Chris Wood who plays "Jake Riley" on the upcoming CW television series Containment Video Interview: Chris Wood Previews Containment

Containment Chris WoodContainment premieres April 19 on The CW, and several months ago, KSiteTV was among a group of journalists who visited the set of the outbreak drama, scheduled to premiere on The CW April 19.

With a special Containment screening and Q&A scheduled for 3:15pm today at Wondercon, now felt like the best time to share one of those interviews — with Chris Wood, best known to Vampire Diaries fans as “Kai.”

In the interview which you can see below, Chris talks about his character “Jake,” the audition process that got him the role, and yes, he even looks back on Kai a bit. Not a lot by way of spoilers, but it will give a better idea of what to expect to the show. Enjoy, and please stay tuned to KSiteTV for more Containment interviews in the future! Gallery images of the cast can be found here.


Here’s how The CW describes the series:

When a mysterious and deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta, a vast urban quarantine is quickly enforced, forcing those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives while local and federal officials desperately search for a cure. Torn apart from their loved ones, the survivors trapped within the cordon are fighting against not only fatal infection but also isolation, fear, and the disintegration of society around them. As they begin to gain each other’s trust, hope remains, and on either side of the cordon, unlikely heroes will rise.
