has claimed that his new series The Deep
has a lot of "layers".
The show, which also stars James Nesbitt and Minnie Driver, focuses on a submarine crew searching for rare micro-organisms in the Arctic Ocean.
In an interview with the BBC's TV Blog, Visnjic explained that there is "a lot of emotion involved" in the series.
"There's a lot going on," he said. "It's not just pure sci-fi. There's a beautiful love story and a family strength and honour story going on at the same time."
Visnjic, who plays Samson, continued: "That's what attracted me to it - it wasn't a flat science fiction action kind of thing, there were a lot of layers under that that were very human. Everyone is going down for a different reason."The Deep
begins tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
