Voicing BBC 4 Radio Play ‘Leverage’

Posted by Mia with 2 Comments

Claire Foy together with Blake Ritson and ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘ costar Charlie Cox will be voicing this week’s Saturday Play on BBC 4 Radio. Tune in on Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 2.30 pm to listen to the one hour play ‘Leverage‘.

A city banker is found dead in an opulent apartment. At the funeral, his former girlfriend Helen (Claire Foy) is unexpectedly questioned about when she last saw him. Did he mention computer files, or give her anything as a keepsake? Helen’s suspicions mount as she retraces his last movements. Her discoveries put her in the firing line. A fast-paced, psychological thriller.

A taut, character-driven conspiracy thriller by one of radio’s leading writers of thrillers. Like the television hit State of Play, Simon Passmore has created an intelligent plot for grown-ups: writhing with twists and heavy on menace. This will be compelling Saturday afternoon entertainment.

David (Blake Ritson) and Helen (Claire Foy), a professional couple in their mid-twenties, are shocked when Jamie (Nyasha Hatendi), an old friend from university, dies unexpectedly. At the funeral, they meet Mark (Charlie Cox), another mutual friend. Mark implies that he works for Special Services, and tells them that Jamie, a high-flying investment banker, may have killed himself – and that his bank has been under investigation. Did Jamie contact the couple before he died? As Mark teases out information, Helen begins to suspect he is not entirely innocent. Mark’s questions turn into threats, and people start getting hurt. David and Helen find they must expose a murder before it’s too late.

‘The Night Watch’ Stills & Photoshoot

Posted by Mia with No Comments

The first pictures of Claire Foy as Helen in ‘The Night Watch‘ have surfaced. It will be previewed on April 4 at the 25th BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival – but the screening is already sold out. No doubt it’ll air on BBC2 soon.

A tale of lost young Londoners whose lives are inextricably linked via their wartime experiences.

We are thrilled to be previewing the television adaptation of Sarah Waters’ masterful fifth novel, now brought vividly to life by the BBC. Set against the backdrop of a London recovering from the devastating effects of the Second World War, The Night Watch is a tale of lost young Londoners, whose lives are inextricably linked via their wartime experiences. Kay, the always brilliant Anna Maxwell Martin (Bleak House), roams the streets, haunted by a great loss in her past, whilst Helen (Claire Foy, Little Dorrit) and Viv (Jodie Whittaker, Cranford) who run a marriage bureau together, face their own relationship dilemmas. Helen obsessively clings to her tempestuous affair with the beautiful Julia as Viv finds herself unable to break free from her married lover. The sexual freedom and independence they enjoyed in wartime is curtailed once more as they are returned to the margins of society, but as each woman strives towards a more hopeful future, they must first come to terms with their actions in the past.

Message to our visitors

Posted by Anna & Mia with 3 Comments

Dear visitors:

Our intention isn’t to start a debate about Israel, Palestine and the conflicts in the Middle East. Our goal is simply to inform people about Ms Foy’s career. Ours isn’t a political site, and we don’t intend to make it a platform for either sides. All we can say is that we have no hatred whatsoever towards anyone or any anti-Semitic feelings.

Thank you for understanding.

Peter Kosminsky on ‘The Promise’

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

London, (Pal Telegraph) – The Promise sets a turbulent and moving love story against the backdrop of the world’s most complex, tragic and intractable conflict – that between Israel and Palestine. It is set in two timeframes – Israel today, and the British Mandate period after the Second World War, just before the modern state of Israel was created. At that time British soldiers were trying to keep the peace as the trickle of Jews into the region became a flood of desperate humanity after The Holocaust.

Peter Kosminsky has won several BAFTAs for dramas that faithfully recreate factual events, often with much controversy attached. The Promise is fiction, although Peter still conducted rigorous research into the background of the piece, and historical events shape the story. The idea for The Promise began after Peter received a letter from an old soldier who had served in Palestine. Read the rest of this entry »

Anna Maxwell Martin mentions Claire Foy in new interview

Posted by Anna with No Comments

In The Night Watch, due soon though still unscheduled, she plays Kay, a lesbian ambulance worker who sifts through bombed houses for bodies. “After the war, she’s utterly broken – and not just by heartbreak, but also by the fact that she believes the war is going to be a pivotal moment for the lesbian movement, that things will change and gay women will be out and proud like her. But that isn’t the case.”

It’s a racy book. “Oh my goodness! I have all my saucy scenes with Claire Foy – it’s like Little Dorrit and Esther Summerson getting off with each other!” (Foy played the lead in the BBC’s 2008 Little Dorrit.) Doing sex scenes with a woman, says Maxwell Martin, is much better than with a man. “In Claire and my case, we’re heterosexual, so it’s purely acting. But with a man, you’re like, ‘Oh God, does he think I fancy him, does he think I’m minging, is he going to get an erection?’ It’s awful.” She whoops with laughter.
