Departure is a six-part television series with Archie Panjabi and Christopher Plummer in the leading roles. Archie Panjabi is Kendra, the investigator with a deep knowledge of aircraft, satellites and computers. Christopher Plummer is Howard, the senior manager of the investigating team of the vanished aeroplane.

The series has enough enticing elements to feed curiosity. Panjabi and Plummer deliver great performances.

Christopher Plummer was interviewed by Radhika Marya in September 2020. Plummer was extremely pleased when he was offered the part of Howard Lawson in the television series Departure. Lawson is the mentor of Kendra Malley, the investigator in charge of the team searching for the missing aircraft. Plummer liked the part of Lawson because it is fascinating, the fact that someone who seems to be is not what the people expect.

Plummer also was drawn to the role because it meant working side by side with the great actress Panjabi. Plummer had few interactions with other cast members while filming, the majority of the scenes were shot with Panjabi.

Plummer was 90 years old when filming the first series Departure. The second season of Departure is currently filming. Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the scenes were shot in Plummer's house.

Unfortunately, Christopher Plummer passed away at the age of 91 in his home in Weston, Connecticut. Plummer was mostly known for his role as the stern Captain Von Tropp in the 1965 movie The Sound of Music. The actor had many roles across his career that expanded six decades.
