First Look at Adora Belle Dearheart

Posted by Mia with No Comments

I added 2 pictures from the upcoming TV movie ‘Going Postal‘ which show Claire Foy as Adora Belle Dearheart. Sky One will be airing this “story of sweet romance and dark revenge set against an ongoing dispute between a traditional postal system and Discworld’s equivalent of the internet” in April 2010. Stay tuned for the exact dates as well as hopefully more and/or better pictures. In the meantime the official plot synopsis:

When life as a travelling con artist catches up with swindler Moist Von Lipwig (Coyle), it looks as though he will face the death penalty. But awarded a last minute reprieve, Lipwig is given one more chance on the condition that he takes up the cursed role of postmaster, and transforms Ankh-Morpork’s decrepit post office. Making an immediate enemy of bloodthirsty tyrant Reacher Gilt (Suchet), Lipwig’s first instinct is to run… until he meets the spellbinding Adora Belle Dearheart (Foy) with whom he falls in love. But what they both are unaware of is the part Lipwig played in the downfall of the Dearheart family. Is their romance forever doomed?

BBC3 gets horror fans’ pulses racing

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

Fans of the horror genre will be pleased to know that BBC3 looks set to give them something scary to enjoy in the dark winter weeks ahead.

At today’s Winter/Spring BBC3 launch, BBC controller of drama commissioning Ben Stephenson assured me that, as a big fan of horror, I am going to like Pulse, which is written by Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell and stars Claire Foy, who previously starred in Little Dorrit for the BBC.

Pulse, according to the BBC’s blurb, is set in a teaching hospital, which is home to some of the UK’s most promising trainee doctors:

But beneath its veneer of medical normality lies a secret network of dangerous experiments, pushing back the boundaries of science with potentially horrifying consequences

Now, I was a big fan of E4’s Dead Set, which, for a TV series, managed to be pretty gruesome and dark, and really provided for those who like their series a little more on the edgy side.

So I can only hope that BBC3 follows Dead Set’s lead to make sure that Pulse does something similar, and gives horror fans, who I often think are under-served by British television, something to get their teeth stuck in to.

The drama is planned as a one-off at the moment, and will run alongside two other pilots commissioned by BBC3, including a drama called Dappers from Mamma Mia! writer Catherine Johnson, and another from Leo Richardson called Stanley Park.

Neither of these is a horror (although Dappers is about two two single mothers living in Bristol — which sounds scary in itself) and I can only hope that that Pulse proves to be a hit, and that the BBC commission it for a full series.

Foy has already proved herself to be a good actress, so I am sure there will be an appetite among viewers to see more of her, if not more blood and gore.

Final Synopsis for Season of the Witch

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Lionsgate’s supernatural thriller Season of the Witch stars Nicolas Cage as medieval knight Behmen, who undertakes a mission pitting him against a devious witch and making him the last hope for the world against an ancient and dark force. His faith broken by years of battle as a crusader, Behmen returns to central Europe to find his homeland decimated by the Black Plague. While searching for food and supplies at the Palace at Marburg, Behmen and his trusted companion, Felson (Ron Perlman), are apprehended and ordered by the dying Cardinal to deliver a young peasant girl believed to be the witch responsible for the Plague to a remote abbey where her powers can be destroyed. Behmen agrees to the assignment but only if the peasant girl is granted a fair trial. As he and five others set off on this dangerous journey, they realize with mounting dread that the cunning girl is no ordinary human and that their mission will pit them against an evil that even in these dark times they never could have imagined.

Full-Length Trailer for Season of the Witch

Posted by Anna with 4 Comments

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.

New role: Homeland

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Claire Foy has been confirmed for a new role: She will play Erin in multi-award winning writer/director Peter Kosminsky’s upcoming Channel 4 drama ‘Homeland‘. Filming for the 4 hour drama serial will take place February – May 2010. Karolyne Erfurt will play the part of her friend.

Synopsis:

Homeland is a fictional four part drama that tells the story of Erin, an 18-year-old Londoner who, while spending a summer in Israel, finds herself face to face with the brutal realities of the conflict in the Middle East.

The drama will intercut between two timeframes and stories: that of Erin in the present-day, and that of her grandfather who, in the 1940s was part of the peace-keeping force in Palestine and witnessed first hand the violent events during the last years of the British Mandate.

The story begins when Erin’s best friend, Eliza, the daughter of wealthy Israeli-Jewish parents, is called back to Israel for her National Service and invites Erin along to spend the summer with her and her family. En route, Erin starts to read a diary that she has found that was written by her grandfather in the forties. Moved by his account and the realisation that he wasn’t much older than her when he wrote the diary, Erin retraces his steps in modern day Israel, seeing for herself the hard facts of life for both Jewish and Palestinian communities. But as Len’s story unfolds, Erin finds herself on a journey which takes her deep into the Occupied Territories, the unresolved disputes of the Mandate period – and right to the heart of the current conflict in that troubled land.

Review of Rehearsed Tennessee Williams Reading

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Dotty, an avid theatre goer in London and author of her own blog Oh, for the breath to utter what is like thee!, attended the previously announced Rehearsed Reading of Tennessee Williams’ The Fugitive Kind in which Claire Foy took part on September 15. Here’s what she had to say (excerpt):

This was a gorgeous lump of a play and produced here with levity and sensuousness at a level way beyond a rehearsed reading status.

Claire Foy is like a luminous liquid flowing around the stage and the rapport between Messers Harman and O’Neill was a joy to behold.

The scenes between Claire and Rory seemed much more sexually charged because the actors rarely stood very near each other and had their playtexts on lecterns in front of them. It was all in the delivery and it had me dribbling.

Blissful evening

‘Little Dorrit’: This year’s best Emmys discovery?

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Perhaps, when the words Little Dorrit kept coming up during last night’s Emmy Awards broadcast, you were all, “Little who?” Or maybe you filtered out the unfamiliar phrase altogether and have no idea what I’m talking about. But wait! There’s a reason why the BBC-WGBH Charles Dickens adaptation picked up so many trophies, including Outstanding Miniseries plus the writing and directing awards in that field.

I’m not even a Dickens fan like that, but my 19th-century-British-literature-obsessive girlfriend sure is, so I watched the miniseries when it aired this spring. The cast was one of those sprawling BBC ensembles, featuring memorable performances from actors I’d never seen before (Claire Foy, as debtor’s daughter Amy Dorrit) as well as some familiar faces (Matthew “Mr. Darcy” Macfadyen as earnest hero Arthur Clennam, Andy “Gollum” Serkis as creepy villain Rigaud). And the plot — all about wealth and class and massive finance-industry malfeasance — was shockingly relevant in 2009. If you’d like to see a melodramatic TV movie about the Bernie Madoff scandal, you’d probably be better off seeking out Little Dorrit on DVD. It’ll be just as much fun, you’ll get a long-suffering love story at the same time, and you know the production values will be higher with the BBC in charge.

Did any of you catch Little Dorrit when it first aired? How psyched are you to see it having a well-deserved Emmy moment? Or are you looking forward to discovering Little Dorrit now that the Emmys have brought it to your attention?

Being Human

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Thanks to my friend Luciana, we have HQ screencaptures from Claire’s guest appearance in the pilot episode of Being Human.

Being Human is a supernatural drama from the BBC that revolves around the concept of two young men—Mitchell and George–sharing a flat. While this seems like a tried and tested formula for television the twist is that Mitchell (Aidan Turner – The Tudors) is a vampire and George (Russell ToveyLittle Dorrit, The History Boys) is a werewolf. Complicating matters further is pair’s newfound home is haunted by the ghost of Annie (Lenora Crichlow – Sugar Rush).

The “complete” series 1 is already available on DVD in the UK, but… while this is a great show, its DVD release is shockingly poor. This is a terrible DVD “complete” set, one of the very worst lack of efforts they’ve ever done. The BBC did an astounding job of producing extra material for this show for their website (short features filmed specially for the site showing some of the history of the leads prior to the show, actors filming behind the scenes diaries, etc) and for BBC3 (the excellent Unearthed documentary and the pilot episode that started the whole thing). And NONE of it is on the “complete” DVD. On top of that, much of the distinctive music from the show which helped set the atmosphere has been replaced with bland stock stuff.

Emmys

Posted by Anna with 3 Comments

Claire won’t be attending the Emmy Awards ceremony tonight, but we’ll be rooting for Little Dorrit! 🙂

UPDATE:

Little Dorrit comes up big:
Dark horse miniseries takes home the most Emmys

It was the little engine that could.

After staying off the radar with little marketing push, the BBC/PBS production of Little Dorrit surprisingly became the most honored program of the night with seven Emmys, including best miniseries.

It was a come-from-behind win. At the nomination stage, Dorrit was tied with its competitor in the best miniseries category, HBO’s Generation Kill, for sixth place, behind such heavy hitters as series 30 Rock, Mad Men and movies Grey Gardens and Into the Storm.

But in the end, the Charles Dickens adaptation squeaked past the dominant player in the longform space, HBO. The cabler’s Gardens was second in the program tally with six Emmys.

“This is a fantastic win that Dickens would be proud of,” said BBC Worldwide exec vp programming and production Jane Tranter, who commissioned the mini at the BBC. “If he was around today, he would undoubtedly be writing for television.”
