‘The Night Watch’ – Claire Foy plays Helen

Posted by Anna with No Comments

What attracted you to the role of Helen?

It was the project as a whole as opposed to just the character of Helen that attracted me. Richard Laxton – the director – was seeing people for every role and I originally really wanted to go for Viv, he kept saying: “Have a look at Helen, have a look at Helen.” When I did I felt she was such an interesting character, so difficult and also quite embarrassing to watch.

You really have to face up to some of your own insecurities to play a character like her because she is so vulnerable, fragile and naive. It was interesting to try and recall whether I had ever behaved like her.

But Helen is also lovely, you want to help her. She is like a friend who continually makes the wrong decisions, even after the advice you give them.

New Project: White Heat

Posted by Mia with 1 Comment

BBC announced a new epic drama series for BBC2 called ‘White Heat‘ and starring Claire Foy!

Also starring Sam Claflin, Reece Ritchie, Lee Ingleby, MyAnna Buring, David Gyasi and Jessica Gunning the original series is written by Paula Milne and will begin filming next week on location in London. What is the semi-autobiographical series about?

This ambitious series charts the lives of seven friends from 1965 through to the present day. Their relationships; complex, volatile, life affirming and life changing start when they come together as a diverse group of young students to live as flat mates in London’s Tufnell Park: rebel with a cause Jack (Claflin), intelligent feminist Charlotte (Foy), fragile beauty Lilly (Buring), medical student Jay (Ritchie), electronics enthusiast Alan (Ingleby), law student Victor (Gyasi) and big-hearted Orla (Gunning).

The series follows them over four decades as their lives, loves and destinies are shaped by the political events of each era – from the death of Churchill, the union strife of the Seventies, the ascendancy of Thatcher, the Falklands, Aids, the end of the Cold War to the present day. Their interwoven personal lives played against the backcloth of these crucial events converge to make them the people they are today.

Read more quotes about the project over at the BBC Press Office.

On a sidenote, Claire Foy will be a “stylish redhead” in the series according to this tweet by Linny Newman.

I’m very happy to finally be able to offer you guys and girls, and add to our gallery, a scan from Elle UK, which was — to my best knowledge — one of the two big magazines to feature Miss Claire Foy, back in 2008, that we were missing (the other one is Vogue UK). The photo used in the article is part of the Daily Mail set, but it’s a previously unseen one. Enjoy! 🙂

Harry Treadaway talks ‘The Night Watch’ in You magazine

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Harry Treadaway talks about BBC2’s haunting adaptation of Sarah Waters’s bestseller The Night Watch:

“It’s split into three parts — 1947, 1944, 1941 — and you trace the story in reverse. The backdrop is wartime but it’s a look at personal wars: there are lesbian characters, and my character Duncan is gay. It’s a beautiful story about the pains of dealing with what you are”.

The Night Watch will be shown on BBC2 in the coming weeks.

‘The Night Watch’ to be shown at the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival

The Night Watch” Thursday, May 28, 7 p.m.

The Colony Theatre, Miami Beach
Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival
Through May 1 at theaters in Miami, Miami Beach and Coral Gables
For tickets and more information, go to

“Someone once said a happy ending depends on when you decide to stop your story…then again, when you realize your story is not yet over, you are only at the end of the beginning.”

Such is the premise for the BBC film “The Night Watch,” Richard Laxton’s historical drama for the BBC set in 1947 post-World War II London. The ending is just the beginning as the story of four young people exploring their sexuality unfolds through a series of progressive flashbacks taking them into the dark nights of the Nazi air raids of London. As the sirens wail and bombs explode around them, each is confronted with passionate trysts and trials during a period of hardship and strict sexual morality. Read the rest of this entry »

More about TOD’s Art Plus Drama Party

Posted by Mia with 1 Comment

The TOD’S Art Plus Drama Party at the Whitechapel Gallery that Claire Foy attended on March 24, 2011 was an evening of live performance, art and drama. The evening featured specially commissioned scripts written by artists including: Lynda Benglis, Ryan Gander, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Barbara Kruger, and Lawrence Weiner. Performed by actors including Benedick Blythe, Helen Bradbury, Claire Foy, Tom Hiddleston, Jake Maskall, Hywel Morgan, Juliet Oldfield, Maxine Peake, Jonathan Pryce and Ashley Walters, directed by Rupert Goold. Ticket sales (£145 per ticket) as well as the auction of works by different artists benefit the Whitechapel Gallery’s Education and Community Programme that works with over 3,000 children and 30 diverse community groups each year.

Harper’s Bazaar was instrumental in pairing actors to scripts for the live performances. In their article about the evening they had nothing but praise for Claire Foy’s performance:

I also loved Claire Foy, who performed a challenging monologue by Lawrence Weiner. She had quite the most incredible presence and made me think of a young Emma Thompson.

And apparently Maxine Peake raved similarly about Claire Foy to Harper’s Bazaar and said that she’s an old friend of hers from the BBC’s Little Dorrit.

Voicing BBC 4 Radio Play ‘Leverage’

Posted by Mia with 2 Comments

Claire Foy together with Blake Ritson and ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘ costar Charlie Cox will be voicing this week’s Saturday Play on BBC 4 Radio. Tune in on Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 2.30 pm to listen to the one hour play ‘Leverage‘.

A city banker is found dead in an opulent apartment. At the funeral, his former girlfriend Helen (Claire Foy) is unexpectedly questioned about when she last saw him. Did he mention computer files, or give her anything as a keepsake? Helen’s suspicions mount as she retraces his last movements. Her discoveries put her in the firing line. A fast-paced, psychological thriller.

A taut, character-driven conspiracy thriller by one of radio’s leading writers of thrillers. Like the television hit State of Play, Simon Passmore has created an intelligent plot for grown-ups: writhing with twists and heavy on menace. This will be compelling Saturday afternoon entertainment.

David (Blake Ritson) and Helen (Claire Foy), a professional couple in their mid-twenties, are shocked when Jamie (Nyasha Hatendi), an old friend from university, dies unexpectedly. At the funeral, they meet Mark (Charlie Cox), another mutual friend. Mark implies that he works for Special Services, and tells them that Jamie, a high-flying investment banker, may have killed himself – and that his bank has been under investigation. Did Jamie contact the couple before he died? As Mark teases out information, Helen begins to suspect he is not entirely innocent. Mark’s questions turn into threats, and people start getting hurt. David and Helen find they must expose a murder before it’s too late.

‘The Night Watch’ Stills & Photoshoot

Posted by Mia with No Comments

The first pictures of Claire Foy as Helen in ‘The Night Watch‘ have surfaced. It will be previewed on April 4 at the 25th BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival – but the screening is already sold out. No doubt it’ll air on BBC2 soon.

A tale of lost young Londoners whose lives are inextricably linked via their wartime experiences.

We are thrilled to be previewing the television adaptation of Sarah Waters’ masterful fifth novel, now brought vividly to life by the BBC. Set against the backdrop of a London recovering from the devastating effects of the Second World War, The Night Watch is a tale of lost young Londoners, whose lives are inextricably linked via their wartime experiences. Kay, the always brilliant Anna Maxwell Martin (Bleak House), roams the streets, haunted by a great loss in her past, whilst Helen (Claire Foy, Little Dorrit) and Viv (Jodie Whittaker, Cranford) who run a marriage bureau together, face their own relationship dilemmas. Helen obsessively clings to her tempestuous affair with the beautiful Julia as Viv finds herself unable to break free from her married lover. The sexual freedom and independence they enjoyed in wartime is curtailed once more as they are returned to the margins of society, but as each woman strives towards a more hopeful future, they must first come to terms with their actions in the past.

Message to our visitors

Posted by Anna & Mia with 3 Comments

Dear visitors:

Our intention isn’t to start a debate about Israel, Palestine and the conflicts in the Middle East. Our goal is simply to inform people about Ms Foy’s career. Ours isn’t a political site, and we don’t intend to make it a platform for either sides. All we can say is that we have no hatred whatsoever towards anyone or any anti-Semitic feelings.

Thank you for understanding.

Peter Kosminsky on ‘The Promise’

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

London, (Pal Telegraph) – The Promise sets a turbulent and moving love story against the backdrop of the world’s most complex, tragic and intractable conflict – that between Israel and Palestine. It is set in two timeframes – Israel today, and the British Mandate period after the Second World War, just before the modern state of Israel was created. At that time British soldiers were trying to keep the peace as the trickle of Jews into the region became a flood of desperate humanity after The Holocaust.

Peter Kosminsky has won several BAFTAs for dramas that faithfully recreate factual events, often with much controversy attached. The Promise is fiction, although Peter still conducted rigorous research into the background of the piece, and historical events shape the story. The idea for The Promise began after Peter received a letter from an old soldier who had served in Palestine. Read the rest of this entry »
