Show #729 Mar 26 2020 join the conversation

Chris Conner is a stage and screen actor who can currently be seen as Poe in Netflix's SciFi series Altered Carbon. Poe is a artificial intelligence the likes of which hasn't been seen on screen before. He is kind, curious, powerful, but gentle. He is a fixer who is broken.
