It’s the weekend, and Christopher Eccleston is in town ahead of a panel for HBO’s hit drama The Leftovers. He’s reading A Childhood: The Biography of Place by Harry Crews and is engrossed in the book after just flying in from the UK. Then, he’s about to go to Austin after which he’ll head to Australia to shoot the final season of The Leftovers. He will continue to portray the recurring character of Reverend Matt Jamison which has already nabbed him two Critics’ Choice Television Awards in addition to a plethora of Emmy buzz.
