Albert Einstein and the people around him — many of whom shaped science history — are getting a fresh look on the new National Geographic series Genius. The new show, which premiered in April, jumps back in forth in time, focusing on the physicist’s early school days and young adulthood and his middle age experiences fleeing Germany. Samantha Colley plays the brilliant thinker Mileva Maric, who would become Einstein’s first wife. She has also appeared on stage and in the series Victoria.
