Peter Kosminsky: Britain’s humiliation in Palestine

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

Peter Kosminsky is one of Britain’s most acclaimed directors of hard-hitting television drama. His latest project – 11 years in the making – tells the story of postwar Palestine and Israeli independence through the eyes of a British soldier serving in the territory. It promises to be an event.

In 1999, shortly after his film about the British peace-keeping force in Bosnia, Warriors, was screened by the BBC, Peter Kosminsky received a letter. It was from an old soldier, who had found Warriors moving, and wanted to thank its director. At the end of the letter, though, was a line – thrown out more in hope than expectation – that caught Kosminsky’s eye. “You should do a film about the British soldiers who were in Palestine,” it said. “No one remembers us.” Read the rest of this entry »

The Insiders: Claire Foy and Robert Sheehan

Posted by Mia with 2 Comments

The next installment of Paranormal Activity won’t hit theaters for a while, but a spooky period piece will keep you jolted in the meantime. It’s Season of the Witch, the film about medieval knights who transport a young – and possibly demonic – woman to her Witch Trial. And it’s scary / creepy / gross / all the things that make going to a big action movie with a pack of Gummi Worms fun.

We sat down with the movie’s two young British stars, who share screen time with Nicholas Cage and a lot of fire, blood, and dirt.

Claire Foy in Yigal Azrouel

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Whilst attending the after party for her latest blockbuster, Season of the Witch, British actress Claire Foy was dressed to impress in Yigal Azrouel dress in New York on Tuesday.

Proving that long lengths are sticking around for yet another season, the rising young star rocked the formal floorlength gown, complete with a contrasting sheer white upper body and statement black waistband – not to mention a seductive thigh high split – with an air of effortless elegance and a subtle sexiness to boot.

And teaming her look with black accessories, Foy certainly knows how to turn pared-down minimalism into one massive style statement – and with a slick of vibrant red lippy, this British beauty proves she’s got what it takes in the style stakes.

So keep your eyes peeled for this up-and coming-fashionista – she’s definitely one to watch for 2011.

‘Season Of The Witch’ Press Day

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

Earlier this week I got a chance to go to the press conference for the new supernatural thriller, “Season of the Witch,” with actors Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Claire Foy, Robert Sheehan, and Stephen Campbell Moore. Aside from actors being covered in bacon and attacked by wolves, I’d really like to know more about Ron Perlman’s hotel habits. I never thought I would, but I do.

This film is rooted in the time of the Crusades. What themes in the film do you think are relevant to today?

Nicolas Cage: I think there are enormous parallels to be made in politics and religion, but I don’t want to draw them. I’ll leave it up to you guys to sort that out.

Ron Perlman: Very, very good answer. Read the rest of this entry »

Claire Foy wore Charlotte Olympia’s undeniably glamorous Dolly heels to the Season of the Witch premiere. The black canvas heels feature pointy toes and knockout gold platforms.

Claire paired the shoes with a gray and white minimalist evening dress. A simple yet chic black hard case clutch finishes off the lovely look.

Claire Foy styled her brunette locks in a loose bun complete with soft curls. Her chic ‘do was the perfect way to accent her sheer top.

Claire finished off her look with rosy red lips and fluttering lashes.

Claire Foy of ‘Season of the Witch’ Talks Massive Attack, Witches and Bruce Springsteen

Posted by Anna with No Comments

There’s a question looming at the blackened heart of Season of the Witch, and it drives the entire film.

Is Claire Foy’s character a witch, or isn’t she? Well, you’ll have to find out for yourself when the movie hits theaters on Friday January 7, 2011…

Perfectly complicating that puzzle, Foy seamlessly teeters between seemingly evil and sensitively vulnerable. It’s a rather delicate performance from the actress. While mired in the midst of all kinds of supernatural madness and heroic bravado from Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman, Foy remains creepy, cool, and captivating, conjuring a mystical presence all her own. She’s one reason why it’s so fun to fall into Season of the Witch.

Claire Foy sat down for an exclusive interview with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino about Season of the Witch, listening to Massive Attack to become evil, her playlist and so much more! Read the rest of this entry »

NextFactor: Claire Foy

Posted by Mia with 3 Comments

Claire Foy might be a relative unknown in the United States, but the 26-year-old actress will soon put American audiences under her spell as she stars opposite Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman in the new supernatural thriller “Season of the Witch.”

Not a bad pair of co-stars for her first Hollywood outing. So, naturally, one would assume that she’d have amassed some crazy stories Nic Cage has become known for recently. “No, really disappointingly,” Foy, who plays a character simply known as “The Girl,” laments. “Nic was just always such a gentleman and probably really well behaved around me.”

But despite the lack of classic Cage antics, the English beauty still had a great time in the role—though she makes sure to leave the spellbinding at work after filming wraps. “It scares me a little bit, the idea of it,” she says. ”But I’ve always been the sort of person who believes in ghosts and those sort of things. I definitely have respect for everything like that but it’s not something I ever want to look into in depth.”

That’s probably for the best considering “Season of the Witch” was not her first on screen run-in with the occult, but we’ll let “Foyster Oyster” fill you in herself. Meet Claire Foy. Read the rest of this entry »

Claire Foy on ‘Season of the Witch’, Dream Roles and Why Nicolas Cage Isn’t Crazy

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Will 2011 be the year of Claire Foy? She’s getting an early-enough start: The 26-year-old British actress makes her big-screen debut this week in Season of the Witch, starring as a nameless, possibly accursed young woman whom a pair of 14th-century knights (Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman) must transport to an abbey in the hopes of curbing the Black Plague. If only it were that easy: One misfortune and suspicion after another befalls the knights’ quest, threatening them, their cargo, and maybe the entirety of human civilization. All in a day’s work, right?

Foy’s breakthrough follows a flurry of high-profile TV roles, including her turn as the title character in the BBC’s acclaimed miniseries adaptation of the Dickens novel Little Dorrit. Movieline caught up with Foy recently to discuss Season of the Witch, why Cage might be a little misunderstood, and a couple other, older Hollywood legends she wouldn’t mind having a crack at in front of the camera.

Claire Foy casts spells in ‘Season of the Witch’

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

Claire Foy is a major talent. She is a fantastic actress, she is strikingly beautiful and she has an amazing personality. And best of all, she is starring opposite Nicolas Cage as “the Witch” in Season of the Witch. While she may be appearing opposite Nic Cage and Ron Perlman, she steals the show with her wild and terrifying performance.

iamROGUE.com recently had the chance to talk with Claire and we briefly spoke about her work in Little Dorrit and Going Postal, but we talked a lot about playing a witch in her latest. She is funny and extremely charming. She opened up about working with Nic and Ron, researching the role, and about how it wasn’t the “boys club” that you might think.

So be sure to check out Season of the Witch when it opens on January 7 at a theatre near you. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Upstairs Downstairs’ Episode 3 Screencaptures

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Sorry for the delay but screencaptures of Claire Foy as Lady Persephone Towyn are up in the gallery now! I was quite surprised to see Lady Persie follow through in earnest on her beliefs in this final part (it seems). While I was disappointed in this it was a pleasure to see Claire Foy act in ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘ – there wasn’t a single false note and despite everything she played her character with just the right balance of pride, charm and vulnerability. This is why I hope to see her back at Eaton Place 165 when and if more episodes will be commissioned.

‘Upstairs Downstairs’ stars reveal all

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Upstairs Downstairs stars reveal all. Read the whole article here.

But it appears that the real stand-out performance among the cast and crew and the one who seems to have made the most impact on its peers was in fact a capucin monkey who, according to Foy, behaved like a toddler throughout filming in Bridgend and Treforest and was near impossible to control.

She says: “I had to see the monkey before we started rolling, as I knew if I just walked in there during the scene, I would have a heart attack, so they had to introduce it to me.

“She was just sat there, bum squeaking on the table, licking stuff and hitting things – like a small child.

“During the first take I had to pretend to be asleep, but I could see her out of the corner of my eye just get up, walk out of shot, get some grapes and start eating them in front of me, looking bored stiff. I couldn’t go on, I’ve never laughed so much.

“She’s big too, and if you tried to take something off her she’d just grab it back.

“Safe to say, I have no major desire to work with animals again. Then again, it’s not every day you’re stuck filming in a room with a monkey.”

Claire Foy as Percy in Upstairs Downstairs

Next we caught up with Claire Foy, star of Little Dorrit, who plays Lady Persephone, asked about her character she said: “She’s definitely a rebel, Persie, but she’s lovely with it.

“She’s Agnes’s sister, you don’t learn much about her in the first episode, but she’s brought to London from Wales to do the whole social thing and when she arrives she’s very uncouth.

“But that stays with Persie throughout the whole thing, she doesn’t conform in anyway, not deliberately, she just wants excitement and parties.”

In the show we see Percy on a Blackshirts march. At the time Britain was facing a threat from Oswald Mosley’s fascist Blackshirts, as Claire explains: “Politics offers her excitement, at the time in 1936 it was exciting, a lot of girls like Percy went off the tracks a little bit. She just goes where the boys are, where the fun is, but she does really read up on it and get in to it.

“She only cares about herself and doesn’t really listen to people either,” she continues.

“Agnes is probably a bit ashamed of Persie, she wants Persie to be a proper lady but she’s has spent her entire life around animals roaming around the Welsh countryside wearing her dad’s clothes, she’s not at all that way inclined. I think Persie deep down wants to be like Agnes but she doesn’t know how to do that so she decides to piss her off instead.”

Speaking of her admiration for her fellow cast members she said: “Anne Reid was a hero, and that’s mainly from Corrie, obviously Eileen and everyone else really, I’d heard of them all before I joined the show.”

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.

‘It would be terrible to be turned into a paparazzi person’

Posted by Mia with No Comments

from You Magazine (UK), by Jane Gordon

She is keen to keep her private life out of the spotlight. But with a starring role in the hotly anticipated revival of Upstairs, Downstairs and a US premiere on the way, can Claire Foy avoid getting the Keira and Sienna treatment?

Claire Foy is hungry. It’s midday in the ground-floor café at the National Theatre and she is eating a slice of lemon drizzle cake so big that it’s a wonder the fragile beauty – brilliantly cast in the leading role of the BBC’s award-winning adaptation of Little Dorrit – has the strength to lift it.

Between mouthfuls, the 26-year-old actress explains that she has just finished an audition that had made her so nervous she had skipped breakfast. ‘I really want the part so I can’t possibly tell you what it is because then I know I won’t get it. It’s a bit too good to be true,’ she says a little plaintively.
