Lainey chats with #ColinFarrell all about #ThirteenLives, the biographical survival film directed and produced by Ron Howard, chronicling the events of the 2018 Tham Luang cave rescue that saw a junior football team and their coach trapped in a cave for a period of 18 days. The Prime Video movie also stars Viggo Mortensen, Joel Edgerton, and Tom Bateman. Colin explains how someone who doesn’t know how to swim, like him, ended up in this role, how he came to enjoy running since playing the part of John Volanthen, and his experience with the Thai people while filming. Plus, how he didn’t want to make the Thai rescue tale another white savior story.
