Sharing the Remote… Claire Foy

from Red Magazine

• TV heaven is…
I hate myself for it, but I love Made in Chelsea. I’d be so starstruck if I met any of them. Though I did chat to some of the cast of The Only Way Is Essex at last year’s BAFTAs. You forget that it’s actually their lives you’re watching, not fiction. I found myself going up to Lydia and telling her that Arg is a wanker.

• TV hell is…
Any sitcom with canned laughter – especially Last Of The Summer Wine.

• My earliest TV memory is…
What felt like hours and hours of my parents watching Have I Got News For You, not understanding why they thought it was so funny.

• My ideal coach potato partner is…
My boyfriend. Though there are certain things I watch secretly because I’m so ashamed, such as Snog Marry Avoid?.

• My TV Crush is…
Dermot O’Leary. Though he reminds me of my brother, so maybe that’s a bit weird.

• My perfect TV dinner is…
Pizza or pasta; wine or Ribena.

• If my life was a TV show it would be…
I’d like it to be Ab Fab. I’d be Edina, rolling around wearing ridiculous clothes and being totally oblivious to making a fool of myself.

‘Upstairs Downstairs’ Episode 2.05 Screencaptures

Earlier this week I added screencaptures of last Sunday’s episode of ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘. I have to say, at this point I can’t take anything Sir Hallam says seriously anymore. If he really believes what he’s saying he’s deceiving himself. And kudos to the twist in Lady Persie’s storyline – definitely keeps things interesting though it doesn’t make her more redeeming.

‘White Heat’ Episode 1.02 Screencaptures

I added screencaptures from the second ‘White Heat‘ episode. Charlotte was doing quite a lot of observing apart from putting stickers on ads that said ‘This ad degrades women’ or ‘This man degrades women’. I think the episode showed quite well at what personal cost modern ideas come or how political views don’t transcend into personal lives. I feel like the events in 1967 shaped Charlotte and I can’t wait to see where she goes from there.

‘Upstairs Downstairs’ Episode 2.04 Screencaptures

In last Sunday’s episode of ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘ I was ready to throw things at Sir Hallam and Lady Persie. In my opinion, he was behaving like a spoilt teenager and she was playing games and testing her attraction out of jealousy and general low self-esteem.

Claire Foy as Rosie in ‘Love, Love, Love’ at the Royal Court

Last week, Claire Foy announced that she would be doing a play next. Baz Bamigboye from the Daily Mail has more information about it:

Claire Foy is revisiting the Sixties in BBC2 drama White Heat. Next stop? 1990, for a new play about the legacy of the baby boomers.

‘I used to think of period drama as Jane Austen, but it’s recent history as well,’ said Claire, when we discussed the London premiere of Mike Bartlett’s play Love, Love, Love, which will run at the Royal Court from April 27 as a co-production with Paines Plough.

The play is about a couple, played by Victoria Hamilton and Ben Miles, who had a fun time in the Sixties. But when they reach their 60s, their children accuse them of screwing up their lives.

Claire will play their daughter Rosie, who ends up having a mid-life crisis. George Rainsford will play their son Jamie, who lives rent-free at home. Sam Troughton will play their uncle.

Director James Grieve, who is also co-director of Paines Plough, told me that the play explores the view that the baby boomers had it easy compared to today’s generation.

White Heat: behind the scenes on the BBC2 drama

from The Guardian / by Emine Saner

Emine Saner meets the flatmates at the centre of White Heat, Paula Milne’s 1960s drama for BBC2

Everything on set is quiet except for a plink-plink-plink sound. “This is a carpet warehouse,” explains Elinor Day, the producer. “The rain comes in, but whenever they fix it, it finds somewhere else to come in.” It is one of those days when it doesn’t feel as if the rain will ever stop.

The actors are hurried from the vast warehouse, where the sets have been built, to their trailers in the car park under huge umbrellas. A great puddle has formed in front of the catering truck and members of the film crew and extras line up to take their turn leaping over it to get to the double decker bus where they eat their lunch behind the steamed-up windows.

Claire Foy on Radio Earlier This Week

Claire Foy talked about ‘White Heat‘ on the radio earlier this week. On Thursday she talked to Richard Bacon on BBC Radio 5 Live and yesterday to Clive Anderson on BBC Radio 4 Loose Ends. I added the Claire bits to the site. I also found & added the full BBC Breakfast interview from Monday.

Excitingly, she mentioned on both occasions that she’s doing a play next. Can’t wait to hear more about that.

White Heat’s Claire Foy and Lee Ingleby on getting old before their time

from RadioTimes / by Claire Webb

Two stars of the BBC2 drama set between the 60s and the present day discuss coming of age

Paula Milne’s drama White Heat follows seven flatmates across six decades – so did its stars Claire Foy and Lee Ingleby find themselves thinking about their own mortality?

Claire Foy (27) on playing Charlotte – “It’s made me think I’ll have to get some work done!”

Has White Heat made you think about getting older?

It’s made me think that maybe I’ll have to have some work done! To age us, they painted our foreheads and around our eyes with what looked like PVA glue — amazingly realistic but terrifying. I’m sure by the end I had more wrinkles because my skin had been stretched so much. Hopefully, I’ll take a little more care of myself than my character Charlotte does.

White Heat: Playing Charlotte over 24 years

from BBC TV Blog / by Claire Foy

When I first saw the scripts for White Heat I was auditioning for the part of Lilly, but as soon I started reading it was the character of Charlotte that I identified with.

I had worked with the writer Paula Milne before on The Night Watch, in which I played Helen, a blonde, quite vulnerable character – the opposite of redhead, ambitious Charlotte. So I knew I had my work cut out to convince Paula I was the right person for the job!!

Both Charlotte and I grew up in Buckinghamshire and I could really identify with her ambitions and excitement at 18 of going off to university to start her life.

Co-Stars about Claire Foy

Nico Mirallegro who plays footman Johnny Proude in ‘Upstairs Downstairs‘ was interviewed by The Lady:

LT: Setting aside your own natural bias, who’s your favourite character?

Nico: I think Claire Foy has a very intriguing character in Lady Persie. She’s so evil and vindictive. There’s just so much behind her, and she plays her very well, with so much ease.

David Gyasi who plays Victor in ‘White Heat‘ was interviewed by IndieLondon:

Q. And how was working with your fellow cast members such as Sam Claflin and Claire Foy?
David Gyasi:
… Claire Foy is amazing. She quietly goes about her business and she’s lovely. But I really enjoyed working with everyone on this. …

Interview: Claire Foy, actress

from Scotsman / by Chitra Ramaswamy

WE’RE not going to be able to avoid Claire Foy this month, which is a very good thing. The 27-year-old English actor, recently chosen by PJ Harvey as her rising star of 2012, is on our screens in two flagship BBC series. In one she is very nasty, and in the other she is very nice. Well, very normal anyway.

The first is Upstairs Downstairs, in which Foy has already appeared as Lady Persie, the bonkers, fascist, Nazi-sympathising bad egg of the “upstairs” lot. The second is Paula Milne’s new drama White Heat, an ambitious saga spanning four decades in Britain that promises to do for its young, hip cast what Our Friends In The North did for Daniel Craig, Christopher Eccleston, Mark Strong and Gina McKee. This time Foy plays Charlotte, a red-haired, hot-blooded, middle-class feminist who pitches up at a north London student house in the 1960s.

“She is relatively normal, which is unusual for me,” says Foy. “A lot of the characters I’ve played are a certain way, at a certain moment. Charlotte is just a middle class girl going through life. She has a similar background to me and is even from the same area of Buckinghamshire. It’s terrifying playing someone who is very close to you. You can’t really do anything to prepare. I didn’t know what I was doing. But I’m really proud of it. I think it’s amazing. And I loved playing her. She is this normal, contradictory girl with the most massive balls.”
