Radio Times (Scans) – Wolf Hall: Damian Lewis & Hilary Mantel on 2015’s biggest drama

Posted by Anna with No Comments

He’s one of history’s great villains. So how did the author of Wolf Hall turn Thomas Cromwell into Henry VIII’s hero?

[…]

“The fall of Anne Boleyn is the subject of Bring Up the Bodies, my second Cromwell novel. The novel, and the TV retelling, ends with her execution. Why revisit some of the best-known events in English history? It seemed to me that at the core of the story there was something missing. There was a moving area of darkness where Cromwell ought to be. Much studied by academic historians, he appears in popular history as an all-purpose, pre-packaged villain. In fiction and drama he’s just off the page or in the wings, doing something nefarious: but what? I wanted to put the spotlight on him; more than that, I wanted to get behind his eyes, the eyes of a man obscurely born, and watch as his country shapes itself about him, a dazzle of possibility.” — Hilary Mantel

The Tudor godfather: Henry VIII’s court was as brutal as any Mafia clan

Posted by Anna with No Comments

By Daphne Lockyer

A pale and dignified Anne Boleyn picks her way across the rough terrain in elegant little shoes, en route to her own execution.

Above her the sky is growing darker and more ominous by the moment. The blustery wind ripples through her ermine cape and buffets the skirts of her damask gown – its deep grey colour chosen to neutralise the bright red blood that’s about to flow.

The scaffold itself is a gruesome sight. There’s the executioner, ordered from Calais, and the glint of the 4ft-long sword that will dispatch her.

Before the end, of course, we must hear the famous, final speech – delivered by Anne while kneeling at the block – the one in which this former Queen of England, now dumped, divorced, divested of her title and about to be decapitated on the say-so of her husband Henry VIII, talks of his goodness.

‘I pray God save the King… For a gentler nor a more merciful prince there never was. Oh Lord, have mercy on me, to God I commend my soul,’ she adds, before the blade falls – at which precise moment of filming, the heavens decide to open and the rain begins to fall.

This is one of the pivotal scenes in the BBC’s brilliant six-part adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s duo of Booker Prize-winning historical novels, Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies, starring theatre veteran Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell and Damian Lewis as Henry VIII.

Claire Foy, the actress who plays the doomed Boleyn, is still reeling from the execution scene, days later. ‘Everything on that day – including the weather – was just so heightened,’ she explains. Read the rest of this entry »

TV & Satellite Week – 17 January 2015 (Scans) – Damian Lewis and Claire Foy reveal what makes Wolf Hall’s Tudor England different and darker

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Power, corruption and lies — Damian Lewis and Claire Foy reveal what makes Wolf Hall‘s Tudor England different and darker.

“I’m not playing Henry as the womanising, syphilitic, genocidal, bloated Elvis character that people probably expect.” — Damian Lewis

[…]

“For example, I’d read stuff about Anne Boleyn having warts and six fingers,” laughs Foy. “Fortunately I wasn’t asked to play her that way”.

As well as that, she was also said to be promiscuous. “Her critics, and there were lots of them, called her ‘The Great Whore’, and claimed she had special tricks in the bedroom that she’d learned in the French court, which was why Henry fell in love with her. But, actually, it’s far more likely that she was a virgin, who kept Henry waiting for five long years.

“She was smart and knew exactly how to play him, although in the end, of course, it didn’t stop him from having her executed,” continues Foy.

Claire Foy interview: The ‘Wolf Hall’ star on politics in the Tudor court and Hollywood

Foy is unforgettable as doomed queen Anne Boleyn in the six-part BBC adaptation, to be broadcast later this month

By Gabriel Tate

Claire Foy has been thinking about babies a lot recently. The reason is plain as soon as the 30-year-old walks into her publicist’s office. She’s unmistakably, gloriously pregnant (her first child with new husband and fellow actor Stephen Campbell Moore), and, with my own new parenthood looming imminently, I can’t help gasping in admiration. We then spend a frankly unprofessional amount of our allotted time sharing assorted hopes and fears before agreeing it might be best for our respective careers if we talked shop.

Foy’s latest role, as Anne Boleyn in the BBC’s Wolf Hall, means this segue isn’t as awkward as it might have been: Boleyn’s fate was determined by her fecundity. As to Anne’s psychology, however, she remains a conundrum. It’s no disservice to Foy, Hilary Mantel, or Peters Straughan and Peter Kosminsky, who have written and directed the six-part adaptation of Mantel’s Booker-winning diptych about the life of Thomas Cromwell (Mark Rylance), to suggest that she’s as unknowable at the end of the BBC’s six-part Wolf Hall as she was at the outset.

New still of Claire Foy as Anne Boleyn – after the coronation

Posted by Anna with No Comments

I think this might be the scene after Anne Boleyn’s coronation, when Cromwell visits pregnant Anne in her bedchamber. The fragment from “Wolf Hall“:

“The bedcurtains are drawn close. He pulls them back. Anne is lying in her shift. She looks flat as a ghost, except for the shocking mound of her six-month child. In her ceremonial robes, her condition had hardly showed, and only that sacred instant, as she lay belly-down to stone, had connected him to her body, which now lies stretched out like a sacrifice: her breasts puffy beneath the linen, her swollen feet bare.”

One of my favourite scenes in the book. The dynamics between Anne & Cromwell is amazing.

Wolf Hall TV show sets prepare for tourist invasion

New BBC drama set locations ready for influx of tourists

By Ruth Doherty

The National Trust is preparing for an influx of visitors to properties chosen as location sets for the new TV adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall.

The properties in Somerset, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire were chosen as they provided the perfect backdrop for filming the story of Thomas Cromwell’s rise to power in the court of Henry VIII.

The six-part BBC series, set to be broadcast next month, stars Damian Lewis as Henry VIII and Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell.

Six British National Trust venues were chosen for to film scenes for the show. Montacute House, in Somerset, was used as the set for Greenwich Palace, Henry VIII’s main London seat and the scene of Anne Boleyn’s arrest.

Lacock Abbey, also used in two Harry Potter films, will be seen as the exterior of Wolf Hall, the Seymour family seat. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Rosewater’ Trailer

Posted by Mia with No Comments

The trailer for Claire Foy’s new project ‘Rosewater‘ was released. The movie premiered last Friday at the Telluride Film Festival and will also be screened during the Toronto International Film Festival next Monday. Claire Foy has a supporting role as the lead character Maziar Bahari’s wife Paola who is newly pregnant and staying in London while he goes on a trip to Iran. Here’s the plot:

The feature film Rosewater is based on The New York Times best-selling memoir “Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival,” written by the BBC journalist Maziar Bahari. A true story, the film marks the screenwriting and directorial debut of “The Daily Show” host and executive producer Jon Stewart, and stars Gael García Bernal, leading an international cast. Rosewater is produced by Scott Rudin, Stewart, and Gigi Pritzker, with Lila Yacoub, Eli Bush and Chris McShaneserving as executive producers.

Rosewater follows the Tehran-born Bahari, a 42-year-old broadcast journalist with Canadian citizenship living in London. In June 2009, Bahari returned to Iran to interview Mir-Hossein Moussavi, who was the prime challenger to controversial incumbent president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As Moussavi’s supporters rose up to protest Ahmadinejad’s victory declaration hours before the polls closed on election day, Bahari endured great personal risk by submitting camera footage of the unfolding street riots to the BBC. Bahari was soon arrested by Revolutionary Guard police, led by a man identifying himself only as “Rosewater,” who proceeded to torture and interrogate the journalist over the next 118 days.

In October 2009, with Bahari’s wife leading an international campaign from London to have her husband freed, and Western media outlets including “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” continuing to keep the story alive, Iranian authorities released Bahari on $300,000 bail and the promise he would act as a spy for the government.

Rosewater has a direct connection to Stewart, who since taking over as host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” in 1999, has turned the nightly half-hour satirical look at newsmakers and news-coverers into not only a perennial Emmy-winning juggernaut, but also an important touchstone on the zeitgeist. Stewart and “The Daily Show” covered Bahari’s saga nightly and had the journalist appear on the show to talk about his ordeal once he was released from prison.

Check out our project page for Claire Foy’s new ITV documentary. She plays Helen Bentwich, a clever young woman who chafed against the restrictions placed on her sex – and seized the chance to work in the arms factories at Woolwich Arsenal, before becoming appalled by the conditions there and joining a trade union.

The four part documentary started airing on ITV earlier this month. Claire Foy was first featured in episode 3 which aired last Sunday. She will also be featured in episode 4.

The Telegraph had praise for Claire Foy:

Claire Foy gives a convincing, spirited performance as Helen Bentwich, who seized the chance to work in munitions factories.

According to This is the West Country, the scene “shows the journey of Anne Boleyn (Claire Foy) from the Thames into Traitors Gate at the Tower of London being re-enacted along the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal just off Bridgwater town centre.”

Thanks to Wolf Hall TV, we now know that “it’s a myth that Anne Boleyn entered the Tower through Traitors Gate. According to Charles Wriothesley’s chronicle, Anne entered through the Court Gate. Today it’s known as the Byward Tower.” Source: “In the Footsteps of Anne Boleyn” by N. Grueninger & S. Morris.

‘Crossbones’ News, Screencaptures Episodes 3-6 & Stills

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Episode 7 of ‘Crossbones‘ will air later tonight as scheduled. NBC announced yesterday that they will be airing episodes 8 & 9 next Saturday, August 2 from 8pm – instead of on August 1 and 8 – thus effectively cancelling the series after bad ratings. The article talks about these episodes being the final two episodes. I’m a bit confused because I thought they filmed 10 episodes. Well, the series will come to DVD soon, on September 2, and I think those 386 minutes of runtime listed on Amazon.com would suggest that there will be 10 episodes on the DVD. Also Amazon lists deleted scenes as special features. Don’t forget to pre-order!

In other news, we are all caught up with screencaptures of Claire Foy as Kate Balfour in episodes 3 to 6. And there are 3 new stills, 2 from tonight’s episode. Enjoy!
