Tune in tomorrow at 9pm when the sixth & final episode of the second series of ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ airs on BBC One in the UK.
On the eve of war, Beryl and Harry face a race against time to get married. Meanwhile, Mr Pritchard makes a decision which throws the running of the house into chaos, until an old face lends a helping hand. And as Lady Agnes returns to London, a dark discovery has explosive consequences for all inside Eaton Place and changes the landscape forever.
Earlier this week I added screencaptures of last Sunday’s episode of ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘. I have to say, at this point I can’t take anything Sir Hallam says seriously anymore. If he really believes what he’s saying he’s deceiving himself. And kudos to the twist in Lady Persie’s storyline – definitely keeps things interesting though it doesn’t make her more redeeming.
Tune in tonight at 9pm when the third episode set in 1973 of ‘White Heat’ airs on BBC Two in the UK.
In 2012, a fourth former flatmate arrives. In 1973, London is targeted by an IRA bombing campaign. Alan finally makes his long-awaited play for Lilly, while Charlotte’s volatile relationship with Jack implodes and she realises she must move on. Orla faces a family crisis that will haunt her for life.
As 165 Eaton Place prepares for the Annual Servants’ Ball, Mr Pritchard enjoys a romance with fellow servant Miss Whisset, and starts to wonder if there is more to life than service. With war looming, Harry has a proposition for Beryl; however, a shock revelation threatens to thwart their plans. Meanwhile, as Lady Persie and Sir Hallam continue their dangerous affair, Sir Hallam is about to discover just how destructive his actions have been.
Tune in tonight at 9pm when the second episode set in 1967 of ‘White Heat’ airs on BBC Two in the UK.
In 2012, Charlotte is joined by two former flatmates to clear the flat. Back in the late 60s, Lilly faces a terrible personal crisis. And at a violent anti-Vietnam war demonstration Jack and Victor face a challenge that will define their perceptions of each other forever.
Claire Foy talked about ‘White Heat‘ on the radio earlier this week. On Thursday she talked to Richard Bacon on BBC Radio 5 Live and yesterday to Clive Anderson on BBC Radio 4 Loose Ends. I added the Claire bits to the site. I also found & added the full BBC Breakfast interview from Monday.
Excitingly, she mentioned on both occasions that she’s doing a play next. Can’t wait to hear more about that.
Sam Claflin just tweeted that he and Claire Foy are going to be on BBC Breakfast to promote ‘White Heat‘ in less than an hour at 8.40am. If you’re in the UK tune in and if possible could you please record it for the site? Thanks! The main part of the interview was posted on the BBC Website.
Lady Agnes catches the eye of charismatic American millionaire Caspar Landry but, as she and Sir Hallam look to their future, a tragic turn of events leaves their promised dreams – and a close family member – in jeopardy. Downstairs, Mrs Thackeray makes a momentous decision, which throws the running of the house into chaos. Blanche and Mr Amanjit continue to clash, until a heart-breaking cause compels them to reconsider their differences.
Tune in tomorrow, Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 9pm when the second episode of the new ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘ airs on BBC One in the UK! I added some other clips from both series to the video archive.
Last November we posted a scan from the 20th Anniversary December issue of Dazed & Confused. But there was also a video with an interview and a look behind the scenes of the photoshoot. Also Claire Foy was interviewed during the London Film Festival at the premiere of her movie ‘Wreckers‘ back in October. I also added some old ‘Little Dorrit‘ interviews.
I added the new ‘White Heat‘ trailer and some pictures from the new BBC2 series. Juliet Stevenson is playing the older version of Claire Foy’s character Charlotte. Go here to find out who is playing the other characters when they’re older. And here you can read an extensive plot outline for the first episode The Past Is A Foreign Country scheduled to air in Week 10.
“The ginger prince must have been up to something!”
Actually not all that much, so why not insert a nice topical joke about that fancy dress swastika scandal… from seven years ago.
Channel 4 have released a clip from their new phone hacking satire show Hacks, based on the recent controversy surrounding the News of the World phone hacking scandal. The show is set in the offices of tabloid magazine The Sunday Comet and features a cast including Claire Foy, Nigel Planer, Phil Davis, Alexander Armstrong, Gordon Kennedy, Russ Abbott and Celia Imrie.
The Television Awards brochure was given to all attendees of the 2011 Philips British Academy Television Awards last May. It was made available as e-mag. Not only does it feature the previously mentioned photoshoot of Claire Foy but she answered also the BAFTA Big Questions – how she got into acting, what movies influenced her and what advice she would give to somebody starting out in the acting industry.
Dread Central has more clips from ‘Season of the Witch‘. Watch them on their site or below the cut.
Thanks to Georgia from Talulah Riley Network all our ‘Season of the Witch‘ Production Stills have been replaced with high quality versions. And there’s one new still. I also replaced the screencaptures of the interview with Nicolas Cage with better quality ones and added the caps from the new interview posted yesterday.
Nicolas Cage’s latest film, Season of the Witch, which opens January 7th, 2011, has released a new, exclusive clip to iamROGUE! Cage and Ron Perlman (a former “Rogue of the Week”) discuss, “Is that the witch?!?” while staring at a beautiful, innocent-looking young woman (Claire Foy) in a cage (no pun intended).
Nicolas Cage and Claire Foy talk about their roles in the upcoming film Season of the Witch by director Dominic Sena and starring Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Stephen Campbell Moore, Robert Sheehan and Christopher Lee.
There’s also a new trailer for the January 2011 release of Season of the Witch – it has more Claire Foy in it and shows her character as more complex, also it seems as if they’re marketing the movie now as more of a cross between historical drama and horror than just horror. Looks exciting! Watch it in HQ on Apple.com.
Oscar(r) winner Nicolas Cage (National Treasure, Ghost Rider) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hellboy II, Sons of Anarchy) star in this supernatural action adventure about a heroic Crusader and his closest friend who return home after decades of fierce fighting, only to find their world destroyed by the Plague. The church elders, convinced that a girl accused of being a witch is responsible for the devastation, command the two to transport the strange girl to a remote monastery where monks will perform an ancient ritual to rid the land of her curse. They embark on a harrowing, action-filled journey that will test their strength and courage as they discover the girl’s dark secret and find themselves battling a terrifyingly powerful force that will determine the fate of the world.
The Official ‘Going Postal’ Website has been updated with loads of pictures & videos, many of which feature Claire as Adora Belle Dearheart. Seriously, you can spend quite some time on there and it’s definitely worth checking out ahead of the airing of the Terry Pratchett adaptation next Sunday & Monday, May 30 & 31, 2010 at 6pm on Sky 1 and HD. Here the direct links to the videos with the Claire Foy interview & Adora’s Make-Up Secrets on the Official Website.
I replaced the captures of the first trailer with some without the Sky Logo and added captures of the extended ‘Going Postal‘ trailer that can be watched on the official site or below the cut. Also added some new stills. Apparently, ‘Going Postal‘ is scheduled to air on May 30.
The author of the book, Terry Pratchett, described Adora Belle Dearheart, Claire’s character, as “a kind of Bogart heroine” in a recent interview with The Independent.

I added screencaptures of the Behind the Scene footage of Claire Foy’s photo shoot for the ‘Best of British Talent’ spread in the new InStyle issue. There’s also a video of InStyle’s party to celebrate the issue and the BAFTAs. I added caps of Claire among the party crowd and of her being interviewed.
Claire Foy is featured alongside Olivia Grant and Bonnie Wright in the March 2010 issue of InStyle UK. The photo is brand new and absolutely lovely.
You might recognise her from:Little Dorrit. What’s next?Going Postal, Season of the Witch, Homeland. Stellar moment: “A highlight of 2009 for me was working on Season of the Witch with Nicolas Cage — he’s eccentric but also such a lovely, genuine man. I’m gutted that I’ll be working and won’t be able to go to the premiere.”
Following up on the teaser trailer that appeared online last month, Lionsgate has released a full-length trailer for Season of the Witch, which hits theatres on March 19, 2010.
In Season of the Witch, Nicolas Cage stars as a 14th century Crusader who returns with his comrade (Ron Perlman) to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence.
A priest (Stephen Campbell Moore), a grieving knight (Ulrich Thomsen), an itinerant swindler (Stephen Graham) and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight (Robert Sheehan) join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl.
When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardizes the knight’s pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.
First look into the forthcoming supernatural film Season of the Witch has come out in the form of a teaser trailer. Brought forth by IGN, the sneak peek is less than a minute long and mostly centers its attention at some of the film’s cast ensemble, Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman and Claire Foy.
During the “2009 Winter TCA Tour”, which took place early January 2009, LA-Story.com had the chance to interview Claire Foy about all things ‘Little Dorrit‘ as well as a little about ‘Season of the Witch‘. The video interview was published on their website in late March – which was when ‘Little Dorrit‘ started airing in the US. Be sure to watch the interesting 12-min interview and enjoy our screencaptures in the gallery. Thanks Joe for the link.
The interview which was done a few months ago shows off Claire Foy after a long day of interviews and still she’s got the light, joy and wonder of all that is occuring in her life as her acting is becoming more in demand. She is fabulous!
