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.

‘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.
