Snook, best known for her role as Shiv in the TV show Succession, said the use of AI is an ‘uncharted landscape’.
Speaking to the BBC‘s Laura Kuenssberg ahead of her role in a London stage adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray, she said she wasn’t able to talk about her time on Succession because of the Hollywood writers’ strike.
Many Hollywood screen actors are on strike, demanding better safeguards against the use of AI in TV and movie productions.
Striking actors can’t promote their screen work, though they can talk about their stage work.
Sarah Snook, best known for her role as Shiv in the TV show Succession, said the use of AI is an “uncharted landscape”
Studio heads insisted it is ‘just not realistic’ to pay striking actors more, as they continue to call for better wages and regulations on studios’ use of the budding technology
She said: ‘AI is just such uncharted landscape and we need stringent rules in place in order to not just protect the acting industry but if we can set a precedent for other industries in regard to how AI is utilised then that’ll be huge.
‘I think all the deep fake stuff that’s now readily available is terrifying.’
Netflix has advertised a high-paying AI position with an annual salary of up to $900,000 – as actors and writers continue to strike and demand better safeguards against technology that may jeopardize their jobs.
The listing, aside from showing the lavish spending now being allocated to AI programs, illustrates Netflix’s continued commitment to integrating artificial intelligence across its various business sectors.
It also comes as several execs insisted it is ‘just not realistic’ to pay striking actors more, as they continue to call for better wages and regulations on studios’ use of the budding technology.
