The Bikeriders may be a work of fiction, but it’s set in a world that’s very real. It’s based on a real-life outlaw motorcycle gang that, over time, expands into criminal activities. Jodie Comer and Austin Butler head up the ensemble cast as a couple who are both members of the gang. And though their characters can sometimes be ruthless, Comer said that Butler’s demeanor was exactly the opposite. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jodie Comer)
