This TV adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger’s 2003 novel and 2009 feature film of the same name stars “Game of Thrones” alum Rose Leslie as Clare Abshire and “Downton Abbey” alum Theo James as Henry DeTamble, a married couple whose romance is complicated by time travel. Desmin Borges and Natasha Lopez co-star.

The premiere episode is called “Episode 1” and its description reads, “Adapted by Steven Moffat from the beloved novel of the same name and directed by David Nutter, ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ follows the intricate and magical love story between Clare (Leslie) and Henry (James), and a marriage with a problem… time travel.”

In a press release, Moffat called it a “story of loss,” but don’t mistake it for a tragedy.

“This is a story of loss but it’s not a tragedy,” said Moffet. “It’s about a time traveler but it’s not science fiction. Despite Clare and Henry’s time scrambled relationship, this is the tale of a grand, ordinary love — but not necessarily in that order.”

In an interview with TV Insider, Leslie explains how Henry and Clare keep meeting in different times due to his situation.

“[Henry]’s always had this pivotal role in her life as a figure of love and hope,” said Leslie. “And then, as she grows up, we see that she is constantly juggling these two scenarios in her life. Who is she when Henry is around? And then, who is she when Henry has disappeared? And I just found that very, very interesting to play.”

“I love the juxtaposition between young and old, because I’m in the middle,” added James. “I’m 37, and I play Henry as an impulsive, young, full-of-himself, mid-20s and late-20s man. And then I play an early-40s, mid-40s version of him. And so, in a way, it’s great that I’m in between, because I could just about be able to connect with him myself. I’m young enough to remember my stupid self, and the mistakes I made, and the cockiness, and the dumb, impulsive decisions. And I’m old enough to imagine a more settled sense of self, hopefully, a little bit longer in the tooth, and a little more thoughtful with my actions.”

The original film starred Rachel McAdams and Erin Bana.

“The Time Traveler’s Wife” premieres Sunday, May 15 at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on HBO.
