10 Minute Tales: Through the Window

Posted by Anna with No Comments

On Monday 28th December 2009, Sky One aired the 8th Episode of 10 Minute Tales, Through The Window, written and directed by Barry Skolnick.

Lee Ingleby is The Man, and Claire Foy is The Woman. This poignant period piece reminds viewers that though loved ones can be lost, they can never be forgotten. A young soldier, who has been away at war, returns to find that his lover has been killed in the Blitz. Miraculously, their child managed to survive the deadly blast. The years pass and, as the widower and his daughter grow older, we learn that the deceased never truly departed… Eternal love is celebrated in this haunting, but tender tale.

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.

Updated Wreckers Synopsis

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Dawn and David are visited by Nick, David’s brother, a soldier on ‘R&R’ from Afghanistan. Dawn is a comfort to Nick, who has episodes of sleepwalking and nightmares. David is angered by their easy manner with each other – more angry than seems necessary to the situation. Dawn tries to discover what is the secret that binds David and Nick together… but she is a flawed detective…

Which of them all is the guilty party?


It seems like Claire’s character’s name is Dawn.

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.


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.

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


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.”

LA-Story.com Interview

Posted by Mia with No Comments

During the “2009 Winter TCA Tour”, which took place early January 2009, LA-Story.com had the chance to interview Claire Foy about all things ‘Little Dorrit‘ as well as a little about ‘Season of the Witch‘. The video interview was published on their website in late March – which was when ‘Little Dorrit‘ started airing in the US. Be sure to watch the interesting 12-min interview and enjoy our screencaptures in the gallery. Thanks Joe for the link.

The interview which was done a few months ago shows off Claire Foy after a long day of interviews and still she’s got the light, joy and wonder of all that is occuring in her life as her acting is becoming more in demand. She is fabulous!

Isleham Informer Scan

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Finally something new to update Claire Foy Source with! 😀

Like Guy had informed us in the beginning of July, Claire Foy was then filming the low-budget drama Wreckers, with locations in London and a village in rural Cambridgeshire called Isleham.

Now that the August issue of the Isleham Informer is out, we have a scan from director Dictynna Hood’s interview that also features two photos from the production. The film is currently in post-production and its storyline is broadly described as a ‘moody psychological love story.’ Co-stars include Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement), Shaun Evans (Telstar) and Sinead Matthews.

‘Idyllic’ location for major feature film

Posted by Mia with No Comments

from Isleham Informer / by Mark Stevens

Isleham proved to be the perfect location for the film ‘Wreckers’ earlier this summer

Unless they were hermetically welded to their TV sets for Wimbledon, village residents will have witnessed the troop of lorries, actors and technicians in the centre of the village that fortnight. ‘Idyllic’ Isleham has been singled out by award-winning director Dictynna Hood as the backdrop to her new film which is due for release in the New Year.

Dictynna said that finding an appropriate setting had proven extremely frustrating, and she had visited numerous villages throughout southern England, but could not find the right atmosphere. ‘Isleham is a working village; it is virtually self-sufficient and owns all the hallmarks of a genuine community. It is perfect’.

The film, which was three years in the writing, was shot against the backdrop of village features such as the Griffin pub, Priory Garage, the Priory itself, the Post Office and the surrounding countryside. About 35 technicians and five central actors, as well as a number of local ‘extras’ completed the Isleham filming in ten days, with another 11 days filming in London and other locations. Shot in Super 16, the storyline is broadly described as a ‘moody psychological love story’. Actors include Claire Foy (Little Dorrit), Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement) and Shaun Evans (Telstar). Sightings of Johnny Depp proved, alas, to be unfounded (or at least unrelated).

Speaking to local residents I sensed not only the genuine excitement (and attendant gossip), but also a quiet sense of community pride, and that is how I wanted to record those two weeks.

Speaking to Dictynna last week, it seems that the film is attracting commercial interest. She also promises to make available DVD copies of the production that I know would be treasured by many. Watch this space…

New Project: Going Postal

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Sky1 has announced the cast for their upcoming adaptation of the Terry Pratchett discworld novel Going Postal – and Claire Foy is playing one of the lead characters: Adora Belle Dearheart. The rest of the illustre cast include Richard Coyle as Moist Von Lipwig, David Suchet as Reacher Guilt, Charles Dance as Lord Vetinari, Steve Pemberton as Drumknott, Andrew Sachs as Groat and Tamsin Greig as Miss Cripslock.

This is Sky1’s third adaptation of a Terry Pratchett novel – hopefully it’ll be as successful as Hogfather and The Colour of Magic. The story of the fantasy novel Going Postal is happening in Ankh-Morphork and filming has now started in Budapest, Hungary. Directed by Jon Jones (The Diary of Anne Frank, Northanger Abbey), produced by Sue De Beauvoir (Merlin) and adapted by Richard Kurti and Bev Doyle the TV adaptation is scheduled to air on Sky1 and Sky1 HD in the UK next Easter (2010) in two parts. Each episode will be an hour and a half long.

Going Postal is the story of arch-swindler Moist Von Lipwig (Coyle) and the beautiful, vengeful Adora Belle Dearheart (Foy). A life long travelling con-artist, Lipwig’s crimes finally catch up with him in the town of Ankh-Morpork. Faced with death by hanging, Lipwig is spared by Lord Vetinari (Dance), who sees him as the perfect man for the role of Postmaster in the decrepit Ankh-Morpork post office. Faced with an almost impossible task, and making an immediate enemy of bloodthirsty tyrant Reacher Gilt (Suchet), owner of the rival money-hungry Grand Trunk Clacks communication monopoly, Lipwig’s first instinct is to run. That is until he meets the spellbinding Adora. Captivated by her beauty and brains, Lipwig will try anything to win her affections…little knowing the part he has played in her family’s downfall.

Good news! Lionsgate announced that Dominic Sena’s Season of the Witch has been granted a March release! Lionsgate obviously feels confident enough to put it up against Dimension Films’ Piranha 3D.

The film centers upon the story of 14th century knights transporting a girl suspected of being the witch who has spread the Black Plague, to trial. Along the way they face a mystical and treacherous landscape.

Welcome to Claire Foy Source aka Claire-Foy.org, your newest and first source for Claire Foy! After a few weeks of having up only a temporary site and gallery, we have opened the full version of the site. Claire Foy Source is owned and operated by Anna and Mia. We’ve recently discovered Miss Foy in Little Dorrit and decided to build this site as a tribute to this young actress who managed to captivate our attention like a veteran actress. We tried to make this site as complete as could be, but, at the moment, there isn’t much about Claire out there. Please stay tuned because Claire Foy Source will keep growing, just like Miss Foy’s career! We hope you enjoy this tribute we’ve built for the English star on the rise.
