The Crown: Claire Foy Reveals the Secret to Being Queen Elizabeth

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Plus, John Lithgow’s recipe to make the perfect Winston Churchill. (Hint: it involves a fat suit, and “lots of liquor.”)

by Paul Chi

Claire Foy had “no idea” what to expect during awards season.

“My work is usually not nominated for anything, so it’s been a complete whirlwind,” Foy, a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominee for her work in The Crown, told Vanity Fair at the BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party in Beverly Hills on Saturday afternoon. “I’m still shooting the second season of the series, and that feels very regular—but all of this is out of the ordinary for me. I just hope I am not breaking any rules I do not know about. Oh God, please tell me if I do!”

The candid star, who plays a young Elizabeth II on the series, will soon be a pro at navigating the endless red carpet events that dominate the early months of the year. Her performance in The Crown received effusive praise from critics impressed at the way she captures both the human and the regal sides of the young monarch. To honestly play the Queen, Foy said it was important to understand her as a private woman.

“I do think she’s like everybody else, but she’s not able to express emotions in the same ways as we do,” explained Foy. “Her duty and her job means she’s not able to be open about her feelings in the way that we all can with our family and with our marriages. Her family was the most important thing to her, and all of a sudden she had to sacrifice them to her job. Once I understood this, she was no longer a disembodied figure and a real person that I could portray her truthfully on the screen.”

Foy’s costar John Lithgow is also nominated for a Golden Globe; he may very well take to the stage on Sunday evening to pick up the best supporting actor award for his turn as Prime Minister Winston Churchill. To transform into the famous government official, the two-time Oscar nominee used a special trick to make his 6’4” frame appear smaller. (Churchill was only 5’6”.)

“I wore a fat suit, and that did the whole job for me,” Lithgow told Vanity Fair at the BAFTA Tea Party’s red carpet. “It made me hunch over a little, and it completely changed the way I moved.”

Lithgow also worked with makeup artist Ivana Primorac to reshape his face, making it look more like Churchill’s. Lithgow wore plumpers stuck inside his teeth to get jowls that resembled the prime minister’s own.

“I had these little blobs designed by Chris Lyons, who also created Meryl Streep’s Margaret Thatcher teeth [for The Iron Lady], and I had cotton jammed up my nose. That was my idea—to give me his nasal voice,” Lithgow said. “You do all those mechanical things, and it immediately transformed me. I felt like I wasn’t John anymore, and much closer to Winston than I was before.”

To nail the character, Lithgow read Churchill’s biography and studied as many video and audio clips as he could find.

“Churchill had so many qualities. He was tremendously temperamental, but he was also sentimental and morose. He was very funny and witty, but had a deeply depressive side,” said Lithgow. “You take all those qualities, and you stir in lots and lots of liquor and cigar smoke, and you get Churchill.”

“Oh my God, I’m having an out-of-body experience,” Foy said upon reaching the stage. “When you play a real-life person, it’s tricky, and you rely very much on the people around you, so I’m going to dedicate this all the people around me. … Big shout-out to John Lithgow and Matt Smith, I wish you were here.”

“The Crown” – World Premiere

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Starring Claire Foy as Elizabeth II, The Crown will look at each decade of our current Queen’s reign, and how her life intertwines with that of the political ruling class.

Ex-Dr Who star Matt Smith plays Prince Philip, and US comedy veteran John Lithgow appears as Winston Churchill, wearing prosthetics and heavy make up.

Each season of The Crown will explore a different decade of the Queen’s reign, looking at the political rivalries that defined the history of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, as well as the personal dramas going on behind the closed gates of the royal palaces.

Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning UK monarch, having sat on the throne for nearly 65 years (Queen Victoria almost made it to 64 years).

The Crown goes right back to the moment Elizabeth changed from a princess to a queen: the death of her beloved father, George VI, in 1953.

The 25-year-old Princess Elizabeth was in a Kenyan treehouse on holiday with her husband Prince Philip, when she received news of George’s death.

“It’s not just the story of a family, but the story of post-war Britain,” says Stephen Daldry.

“Are you my wife or my Queen?” Philip memorably asks Elizabeth in an early scene, before the boundaries between the private and the public have bee established.

On the other hand, with the sympathetic wisdom born of age, Churchill says to Elizabeth, “Never let them see that carrying the crown is often a burden.”

Posted by Anna with No Comments

In keeping with the theme of the evening the BBC Little Dorrit actress Claire Foy looked the epitome of luminous as she sashayed down the red carpet towards No 8 Northumberland Avenue. She shone in a black-and-white dress.

The inaugural Fundraising Gala, which includes dinner and an auction, celebrates British film and British film talent and is held to raise vital funds to secure the future of the BFI National Archive.

Guests were able to auction on a number of exciting auction prizes including the Formula 1 replica car from current hit film Rush, John Travolta’s suit (signed) he wore in Face/Off and original signed stills from Sam Taylor Wood’s I Love You More and Isaac Julien’s Mazu, Turning.

CLAIRE FOY: ANATOMY OF MY OUTFIT

CLAIRE FOY: ANATOMY OF MY OUTFIT

We caught up with the star of Little Dorrit and Upstairs Downstairs at a tea party held at the Kate Spade New York boutique in Chelsea to celebrate the Chelsea Flower Show.

The 29-year-old actress is currently filming Vampire Academy with Olga Kurylenko and Gabriel Byrne.

‘It takes me about five hours to get ready,’ she told us. ‘I’m not very good at it – I spend a lot of time standing and staring at my wardrobe and not achieving much.

‘Then I suddenly think of something I want to wear only to discover it’s in the wash’

Jewellery I wear this Monica Vinader necklace every day. It was a gift from the producers when I did Macbeth with James McAvoy at London’s Trafalgar Studios. I love all of Monica’s designs and they make perfect presents. My bracelet is from Cos. I’m loving fluoro accessories for summer.

T-shirt This is from Asos – I’m a big fan of online shopping. I’m not sure why I chose this, but I do love Paris so I guess it makes sense.

Clutch bag I love the colour of this Kate Spade New York bag – everything this label does adds an instant injection of fun and style to your outfit. I want it all!

Trousers These cost me £10 in the Whistles sale about nine million years ago when I had an office job and needed to look smart every day. They are such a great fit and I’ve bought Whistles trousers ever since.

Shoes I call these leopard-print numbers my emergency shoes. I panic-bought them before I went to an awards do. They are by Mulberry and they weren’t cheap. But I now wear them whenever I have to dress up for something, so it makes it OK.

‘Chimerica’ – After Party

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Headlong’s world premiere of Lucy Kirkwood’s Chimerica opened at the Almeida Theatre last night (28 May 2013).

The play follows the aftermath of the famous 1989 Tiananmen Square photo, centring on the American journalist who took the photo, who more than 20 years later begins to question the fate of the unknown protester in his shot.

This investigation leads to a deep examination that explores the relationship between China and America, and the influences each country has on the other.

The production is directed by Lyndsey Turner and runs until 6 July 2013.

Claire Foy at the Olivier Awards

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Macbeth‘ finished its eighty day run last Saturday. The production was a phenomenal success, was entirely sold out and surprisingly received two nominations at this year’s Olivier Awards (instead of next year’s): for Best Revival and James McAvoy for Best Actor. The Olivier Awards were held yesterday at the Royal Opera House in London and sadly the Olivier Award in the two categories didn’t go to ‘Macbeth‘ but to ‘Long Day’s Journey Into Night‘ and Luke Treadaway respectively.

Claire Foy attended the event and looked absolutely gorgeous wearing a strapless 1958 Hartnell black silk and velvet gown by William Vintage.

I added a few pictures, some of them in high quality. Enjoy!
