9A newsreader

There is no doubt about the fact that that the show had an amazing casting director. Even some of the insignificant characters got attention. For instance, one of the many newsreaders shown on the show was this lady in the red. The actor they selected to play her looks identical to her with the same hairstyle and same dress.

10The last resort

The Soviets realized the only way to throw all the debris back into the reactor was by using human action. We remember the part from the show when the men had only 90 seconds to do their task and leave. This happened in reality too and the picture is on the bottom. The show recreated it almost perfectly. The background looks exactly the same.

11The person who briefed the brave boys

Before the men had to go on the roof to clear the debris, they were briefed by a man about what their task would be. The actor who played the part looked and dressed very similar to the man who did the job in reality. The man had a stern demeanor but that was probably because he knew what the radiation would do to those men.

12The most devastating job

Army general Nikolai Tarakanov, played by Ralph Ineson, was tasked to brief the men who would clear the debris on the roof. They were exposed to damaging radiation and would definitely die but he had to give them false hope and praise them and say they had served their country for a meager amount of money. The recreation of the scene looks eerily similar.
