‘The Night Watch’: Even More UK Scans

Posted by Anna with No Comments

“It’s all about how the war frees you, but binds you at the same time”

Helen is far less at ease with her sexuality than Kay, and struggles to come to terms with her affections — leaving her wracked with insecurity.

“Helen makes a lot of bad decisions,” Claire tells Inside Soap. “She wants to do the right thing all the time. She’s concerned about what people think and what the right thing to do is — but she doesn’t know what that is. She wants love, but doesn’t know what to do when she gets it — that’s why her relationship with Kay goes so wrong.” (Source)

The Night Watch will air tomorrow, July 12, on BBC2, at 9pm.

‘The Night Watch’: More UK Scans

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Helen, played by Claire Foy, is Kay’s girlfriend but she’s less certain of her sexuality than Kay and struggles with social taboo.

“Helen is a lost soul who doesn’t really see herself as a lesbian,” explains Claire, 27. “She doesn’t like living a lie and she can’t justify being with a woman in her mind if other people think it’s a bad thing to do.

“So when she falls passionately in love with a woman, that’s a shock for her.” (Source)

The Night Watch will air next Tuesday, July 12, on BBC2, at 9pm.

‘The Night Watch’: New UK Scans

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Claire Foy is ditching her Little Dorrit bonnet for a new period drama — with World War Two as the setting and the subject being sex not rags to riches.

“Helen’s on a knife edge,” insists Claire. “Nobody knows she’s desperately in love with a woman and every day she’s pretending to be someone she’s not. It’s awful for her.”

The Night Watch is based on the book by Sarah Waters, who also wrote the steamy Tipping the Velvet. “It won’t be quite as controversial,” says Claire. Besides, it seems filming the bedroom scenes with a woman was fun.

“It’s much easier than with a man,” Claire says. “You can chat and everyone’s got the same bits and pieces!” (Source)

The Night Watch will air next Tuesday, July 12, on BBC2, at 9pm.

You Magazine

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Claire Foy is featured in today’s You magazine with a brand-new photoshoot and interview well worth a read. She talks about her upcoming projects Upstairs Downstairs and Season of the Witch and how looks and fame are not what’s important. You can find it on the Daily Mail Website.

I find fame a very abstract thing to think about – I don’t think that will happen to me. I would hate to be hounded. I think it would be terrible to be Sienna Miller or Keira Knightley and be turned into this paparazzi person. I’d love to have their careers but not what goes with it.

Obviously, when I was a teenager I used to spend hours straightening my hair and I had terrible skin that used to really upset me. But when I was 18 I had a horrible growth on my eye that eventually had to be operated on. That taught me not to care so much about the way I looked. I got over myself. I don’t mind how I look for a part as long as it fits the character.

More info on the BBC Radio 4 Reading

Posted by Mia with No Comments

The BBC Website has the details of Claire Foy’s upcoming reading on the radio. It’s the 3rd and last episode of the 4th series of Afternoon Reading: The Time Being – a series of original stories by unpublished writers produced by Sweet Talk for BBC Radio 4.

Smell My Fleece by Anna Towers, read by Claire Foy

With four fewer teeth and a mouth stuffed with cotton wool, Debra isn’t having the easiest of days. And then she meets Dale. A curious tale of dentistry, stalking and poetry.

Apparently, the recording will be available on the BBC Radio 4 Website for 7 days afterwards.

Isleham Informer Scan

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Finally something new to update Claire Foy Source with! 😀

Like Guy had informed us in the beginning of July, Claire Foy was then filming the low-budget drama Wreckers, with locations in London and a village in rural Cambridgeshire called Isleham.

Now that the August issue of the Isleham Informer is out, we have a scan from director Dictynna Hood’s interview that also features two photos from the production. The film is currently in post-production and its storyline is broadly described as a ‘moody psychological love story.’ Co-stars include Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement), Shaun Evans (Telstar) and Sinead Matthews.
