Have you had a chance to check out Sense8 on Netflix? What an interesting ride. For those who haven’t had a chance to take in a few of the intriguing episodes just yet, it’s highly recommended. Very few shows made for the small screen boast as many locations, and such talented casts. Add to that a unique and luring story line, and you’ve got the critically acclaimed hit that audiences are falling in love with “on their own schedule.” Still, there’s a lot that even the biggest fans may not know. Consider 8 fun facts about Sense8.

8. Nine World Cities

How many locations have they used in Sense8? Yes. More than eight. The Wachowskis were adamant about shooting in unique locations, while energy and circumstance–as well as look–couldn’t be replicated in a studio or with exterior facades. Because of this, the producers elected to shoot in the following cities: San Francisco, CA; Chicago, IL; Mexico City, Mexico; Reykjavik, Iceland; Mumbai, India; Seoul, South Korea; Berlin, Germany; Nairobi, Kenya; London, England. The decision to shoot authentically has taken the show to another level of excellence.

7. Jamie Clayton

Did you know: Actress Jamie Clayton is transgender just like her character Nomi Marks. Most fans of Jamie would know this, but unlike many instances when productions attempt to pass off someone as transgender, the producers–especially Lana Wachowski, being transgender as well–desired a transgender actress for the role. This plays into a few of the theories about the show from fans–as well as actor Brian J. Smith–regarding the connection between all of the main characters that are featured in the show.
