Jericho’s Love Story of Annie and Johnny

Jericho - S1

As you have been able to tell through the first couple episodes of “Jericho,” the visual elements and strong, character-driven storylines make this Shantytown drama a must-see series with substance.

Of course, one of the major storylines working its way through “Jericho” is the evolving relationship between Annie (Jessica Raine) and Johnny (Hans Matheson). Although it has tense moments, it’s easy to see that the pair has a mutual interest in one another that could propel their bond to a whole new level. 

“The thrill of the story and the epic romance [in ‘Jericho’], it’s like a dream really, a dream job for me anyway, because Annie goes through so much,” explained Raine in a 2016 interview with What’s On TV. “And she changes. All the characters are very mercurial and shifts of identity happen constantly with every single character and that’s very intriguing for an audience. And the town itself is a character in itself, I suppose. It’s new, it’s lawless, anything goes. In Victorian society, that’s remarkable.”

Added Matheson in a separate interview What’s On TV: “At the end of the day it’s about story and chemistry, and whether or not it’s working between the actors and whether the story is gripping… I think ‘Jericho’ is a gripping story. And it’s not just about Johnny and Annie, there are so many different characters. There is the world of Jericho, and there are worlds within that world and you could go in any direction into different lives. Obviously in the first series we do focus on Annie and Johnny’s journey.”
