‘White Heat’ Preview & Q+A Tomorrow

A preview of Claire’s upcoming drama series for BBC2 ‘White Heat‘ will be screened tomorrow, February 15 at 8 pm at the BFI Southbank in London. Apart from seeing the 2 60-minute episodes there will also be a Q+A panel with writer Paula Milne, cast members Sam Claflin and Claire Foy and director John Alexander. Tickets are still available, buy them here.

Scripted by award-winning writer Paula Milne (Small Island, The Fragile Heart), White Heat concerns seven characters who share a student flat in London in 1965. The serial explores their interwoven lives, loves and betrayals, set against the social and political backcloth of Wilson through Thatcher, via feminism, hedonism, union strife, the Falklands and HIV to the present day. It explores how our lives are shaped by the choices we make, which are governed by the opportunities society affords us.

2nd Series of ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ Coming Next Week

As announced, ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘ is returning with a 2nd series containing of 6 episodes next Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 9.30 pm on BBC One. Claire Foy reprises her role as Lady Agnes’s younger sister, Lady Persie Towyn.

No drama about an upper-crust family would be complete without a wayward beauty whose behaviour threatens to bring shame on the ancestral name. And in Upstairs Downstairs, Lady Persephone Towyn is no exception.

She is a fascist and has an affair with the family chauffeur, Harry Spargo (shades of Downton Abbey’s Lady Sybil, who also ran off with the Granthams’ driver). In the new series Persie has several dalliances, which raise eyebrows.

Claire says, ‘Persie is precocious and selfish and does some terrible things this time round, so I think a lot of viewers are going to be shocked. I’ll get tomatoes thrown at me in the street.

‘Personally, I think she’s brilliant, and I love playing her, but she has no inhibitions and is big trouble.’

Is Persie jealous of her elder sister? ‘Yes, but not in a destructive way. She secretly envies Agnes, who’s perfect, accomplished and has a family, though she knows she can never be like her.

‘But Agnes doesn’t try to understand Persie and is constantly disappointed by her. She wants them to get on but Persie keeps ruining it. Sometimes Persie feels completely hemmed in by her sister and tries to retaliate.

‘If anything, their relationship gets more and more complex as the series goes on. Persie desperately wants someone to look after her and love her, but doesn’t how to go about it.’

‘The Promise’ Blu-ray Screencaptures – Part 3

I finally added Blu-ray screencaptures of Claire Foy as Erin Matthews in the third part of the gripping drama ‘The Promise‘. This episode doesn’t feature as much footage of Erin but even so her journey gets more exciting. She goes to see Omar at his home by herself and invites him inside Eliza’s home, which leads to trouble and another epileptic fit. Through the diary Erin finds out how her granddad also suffered from those. After connecting with Paul things go further than planned and Erin takes off by herself to occupied Hebron and into the city’s closed off ‘sterile zone’ which of course again leads to trouble. Expect screencaptures from the final and even more tumultuous final episode later this week – enjoy!
