Foy: My search for Nicolas Cage

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Claire Foy has revealed she went on a Nicolas Cage hunt while filming her new period drama The Night Watch.

The Upstairs, Downstairs star worked with Cage on the film Season Of The Witch, and while filming on location in Bath, where she knew he had a home, decided to try and track him down.

Claire said: “I did walk around the crescent where he lives going, ‘Nic, Niiiiiic!’ in the hope he would open his door.”

She added: “He’s a lovely man. When I first met, him he strode across the car park and went, ‘I’m so glad you’re doing this movie’. I thought, ‘Oh my God, are you mad?’ It was such a bizarre experience. I couldn’t think of what to say, because Nicolas Cage saying he’s glad that I’m doing the film that he’s doing was just a bit odd.”

Claire Foy: ‘Next I want to do some singing and dancing’ – interview

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Spend a little time in Claire Foy’s company and you get the sense that, while she might be a bit stunned at how rapidly her acting career has progressed, she’s certainly going to seize her moment. Irrepressibly cheerful, fast-talking and candid, the 27-year-old has barely rested in the four years since she left the Oxford School of Drama. It was only a matter of months before she starred in the pilot episode of Being Human (she always knew it could be huge, she says); she went on to take the leading roles in the BBC’s 14-part adaptation of Little Dorrit and in Peter Kosminsky’s acclaimed Israel-Palestine drama The Promise, which she describes as “a real love project for everyone who did it”. Oh, and she’s also squeezed in Upstairs Downstairs and a Hollywood fantasy thriller, Season of the Witch, with Nicolas Cage.

Now we’re about to see her playing the romantically tortured Helen in Paula Milne’s adaptation of the Sarah Waters novel The Night Watch. She says that when she first read the script she thought “Oh God… On the outside you see her as what she is, which is doing lots of things wrong, like when you look into someone’s relationship and think, ‘Don’t do that, Don’t do that, Don’t do that’ – and then they keep doing it. It’s painful to watch, in a way.”

‘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’: Claire Foy interview

Posted by Anna with No Comments

BBC Two’s been having a stellar run of drama recently, and the latest show aiming to capture the attention of the British public is The Night Watch. Based on the novel by Sarah Waters – she of Tipping The Velvet fame – the film focuses on the lives of several women living in wartime, and just post-wartime, London. Among the list of amazing stars taking part is Claire Foy, who recently chatted to reporters about her role in the drama. Read on to find out what she had to say about researching smoking, why love scenes are easier with two women, and whether she’s nervous about how the film will go down… Read the rest of this entry »

Love among the ruins

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

“You don’t see the broad sweep of London at war,” explains Claire Foy, who appears in the one-off drama as an insecure and brittle marriage bureau owner called Helen Giniver. “It is more personal, about people trying to live their lives while a war is going on and how it affects their decisions and erodes their lives.”

(…)

“Working backwards is a really clever device,” says Foy. “You really get the sense that life was almost easier in the war because every decision was made for you and you lived day to day because you knew you might die at any moment. After the war, none of the characters knows what to do with their life and the country is in a state of flux.”

(…)

“The four main characters are outsiders, because they are not really part of the status quo,” says Maxwell Martin. “Most of them are hiding secrets, and the drama shows how the war frees them and yet binds them at the same time.”

(…)

For both Foy and Maxwell Martin, the toughest part of the shoot was filming on the bomb sites where Kay (Anna Maxwell Martin’s character) has to work. The scenes were shot in Bath, which was doubling as wartime London.

‘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.

‘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.

My TV hero: Claire Foy on Joanna Lumley

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Claire Foy as told to Vicky Frost from The Guardian

Joanna Lumley is just brilliant in Absolutely Fabulous – I love that she’s not afraid of looking like a wally

Perhaps because I now tend to play people who are quite miserable, or at least not at their happiest, in my normal life I try to be quite upbeat. I’ve always found Joanna Lumley in Absolutely Fabulous hilarious. My mum and my sister were obsessed with the show, so I grew up watching the show pretty much all the time – we even wore out the videos.

Jennifer Saunders is fantastic in it of course, but I really love Lumley as Patsy Stone. Rewatching it recently, I was even more taken by what an amazing character Patsy is, and how brilliantly Lumley plays her.

It’s her physicality that makes Lumley so funny: the fact that she’s this elegant, beautiful woman who, with just a stoop of her shoulders, makes herself look completely different. I love that she’s not afraid of looking like a wally, and she doesn’t seem to take herself too seriously.

She also always goes for it so completely. In television and film it’s all about being very subtle, but Lumley’s performance is so grotesque, yet also still believable. I find that sense of not really caring what you look like inspirational – I find it difficult to stand and have a picture taken, for instance, and not laugh at the absurdity of it all.

I also can’t imagine how she and Jennifer Saunders could get through the show without laughing. There’s this brilliant scene where Patsy comes in, moaning about non-smoking cabs, and lights about 20 cigarettes at once. As an actress I have no idea how she kept a straight face. I wish I could have been in AbFab – but God knows how I would have managed to stop myself laughing.

I didn’t watch when they brought Absolutely Fabulous back. I wanted to keep the show as I remembered it. I was in New York recently and saw Lumley in La Bete on Broadway with Mark Rylance. She was brilliant. But I think, in a weird way, I wouldn’t like to work with her. The funny thing about this industry is you sort of give up being in awe of something; you don’t watch things properly because you know what’s going on behind the scenes, and so the spell is broken.

Really, I’d just like to have a chat with her, and try to get her to re-enact scenes from AbFab for me. Although I’m sure that would not be entirely appropriate.

• Claire Foy will appear in The Night Watch on BBC2 next month.

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.

Claire Foy

“For some reason,” says Claire Foy, “in every house I’ve ever lived in I couldn’t get reception, or I could only get BBC2, so I’ve ended up watching a lot of Newsnight.” Luckily the rest of the nation is better at tuning an aerial, so they got to enjoy Foy in Going Postal and Upstairs Downstairs in 2010, and in Peter Kosminksy’s The Promise this year, which is up for best drama serial. “The Promise was really important to me,” says Foy. “I took it very personally and researched the role thoroughly – I got to really act and I loved the story so much.” Next she’s in the adaptation of Sarah Waters’s The Night Watch. “Director Richard Laxton did an amazing job with an amazing script from an amazing book. We shot it in a month and it was really cold, with naked women running around everywhere, but it’s so good”

“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”.

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.
