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.

‘Upstairs Downstairs’ recommissioned for BBC One

Posted by Anna with 2 Comments

Danny Cohen, Controller of BBC One, confirmed today that Upstairs Downstairs has been recommissioned and will return with a 6 x 60-minute series in 2012.

Danny Cohen says: “The return of Upstairs Downstairs was fantastically well-received but what drove us to recommission was the wonderfully imaginative and distinctive plans the team have to take the drama forward.”

The hugely anticipated revival of the legendary Upstairs Downstairs starring Dame Eileen Atkins and Jean Marsh was a smash hit with audiences old and new on BBC One this Christmas, attracting an average of 8.4 million viewers across the three episodes. Read the rest of this entry »

Interview: Claire Foy

Posted by Anna with 1 Comment

If you’re not yet familiar with Claire Foy, you soon will be. Having starred in dramas Little Dorrit and Upstairs Downstairs and been earmarked for stardom by trend bible Vogue, she’s currently starring in a Hollywood blockbuster with Nicolas Cage, Season of the Witch. But it’s her latest role, in Peter Kosminsky’s new drama The Promise, that has made the biggest impact on Foy.

She plays Erin, an 18-year-old visiting Israel for the first time. She’s following in the footsteps of her grandfather Len, a soldier in the British army in Palestine during the Mandate period who kept a diary of his turbulent time there.

It’s a powerful tale of love, war and betrayal, telling the stories of both Erin and Len – two young people caught up in the same struggle more than 60 years apart.

Here, Foy reveals her passion for the project, and explains why she’d like to burn every costume she’s ever worn.

What was it that drew you to The Promise?
I remember the very first audition very clearly. I got sent 25 scenes, and was asked to prepare all of them, which is what Peter does, God love him. It was so much work.

Claire Foy & Christian Cooke, The Promise

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Feb 01, 2011 – A major new Channel 4 drama looks at the bloody and brutal history of Israel. TV Choice talks to its two stars, Claire Foy and Christian Cooke…

Tell us about your characters
Claire Foy: I play Erin who’s on a gap year before university and goes off to Israel with her schoolfriend Eliza, who is doing her National Service. Erin is very moody. She feels her life is not as good as anyone else’s and has got a massive chip on her shoulder. But when she reads her grandfather Len’s diary she starts to change. It’s about his experiences in post-war Israel and all of a sudden she feels she has something to believe in and someone to love.
Christian Cooke: And I play her grandad in the scenes set after the war. Len was part of the British peacekeeping force sent to Israel in accordance with the 1917 mandate. He’s young and naive but he’s got a strong sense of justice. Read the rest of this entry »

TV Choice w/c 5 February Claire Foy’s promising role

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Claire Foy reveals how she identified with her latest role as a stroppy teenager in this week’s TV Choice.

Feb 01, 2011 – Claire plays spoilt Erin, 18, who travels to Israel with her friend Elizar in Channel 4’s The Promise. But Erin starts to change when she reads her grandfather’s diary about his experiences in the British peacekeeping force in Palestine at the end of WWII.

‘Erin thinks the world’s against her,’ explains Claire Foy, who spent 10 weeks filming in Tel Aviv.

‘I could appreciate what she was like because I was like her when I was 18. Looking back I was awful, just so moody. I’m worried that my mum’s going to see this and think, “Oh my God, the bitch is back.”’
