Behind the Scenes of ‘Wreckers’

Posted by Mia with No Comments

We haven’t heard much about Claire’s upcoming independent British movie ‘Wreckers‘ which was shot during the summer of 2009. But for a while now there has been an official Facebook page where director Dictynna Hood is posting updates about post production as well as pictures from behind the scenes, including some gorgeous shots of Claire. I’m now officially intrigued. Hopefully, co-star Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent success in ‘Sherlock‘ will help the movie get a release date soon! Here’s the extended ‘Wreckers‘ synopsis:

WRECKERS is a psychological drama which examines the fragile relationship between truth, intimacy and betrayal.

Recently married couple, David and Dawn, return to Davids childhood village to start a family. Their relationship seems idyllic, but getting pregnant is proving difficult and is adding to the strain of building their perfect home. A surprise visit from David’s brother Nick, a soldier, on leave from Afghanistan, slowly exposes the lies embedded in Dawn and David’s relationship. Through Nick, Dawn discovers more about the siblings’ painful childhood and begins to wonder how well she knows her husband.

Disorientated by her husband’s sudden volatility, she is inextricably drawn to Nick. Dawn becomes a hostage to an increasingly precarious sibling friction, putting the couple’s relationship to the ultimate test.

This is a bit late, but while Claire Foy was still filming ‘Homeland‘ in Israel (she finished end of May) the Hebrew website Magazin published an article with pictures Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. If anybody could provide a translation of the text, we’d be very happy!

‘Season of the Witch’ undergoing additional shooting

Posted by Mia with 1 Comment

Ever since it’s theatrical release date was postponed in spring the fate of ‘Season of the Witch‘ – Claire’s big screen debut – has been unclear. According to Shock Till You Drop.com Production Weekly reported yesterday that the movie is undergoing some re-shoots, or additional shooting, at the beginning of September. IGN.com reports that this additionally photography will take place in Shreveport, Louisiana. Also they blame the tremendous delay on unsuccessful early screenings. Let’s hope this movie’s luck will soon turn around!

‘Upstairs, Downstairs’ returns to BBC – with Claire

Posted by Mia with No Comments

After receiving more critical acclaim for her modern day follow up projects to ‘Little Dorrit‘ – ‘Pulse‘ for BBC3 and ‘Going Postal‘ for Sky One – Claire Foy is returning to the past as well as to BBC One in her new role as Lady Persie in ‘Upstairs, Downstairs‘ set in 1936. However, Lady Persie and Amy Dorrit are nothing alike. Lady Persie “The Temptress” is the sister of Lady Agnes Holland played by Keeley Hawes – who is married to Matthew Macfadyen who played Arthur Clennam in ‘Little Dorrit‘.

The Temptress
Lady Persie, played by Claire Foy, the star of BBC1’s Little Dorrit, is the sister of Lady Agnes and is described as ‘walking dark and dangerous path’. She will break hearts like her predecessor, the glamorous Lady Georgina Stockbridge, a hedonistic party girl played by Lesley-Anne Down who eventually saw the error of her ways after accidentally killing a cowherd in a road traffic accident. Ms Down, now 56, went on to find fame in America and is currently starring in the long-running daytime soap opera The Bold And The Beautiful.

The new project is actually a revival of ITV’s Seventies hit ‘Upstairs, Downstairs‘. The show originally ran on ITV from 1971 to 1975, spanning the fictional life of the Bellamy family from 1903 to 1930, and was the brainchild of actresses Dame Eileen Atkins and Jean Marsh. The new version will be set in 1936. In the new series, which takes up the story six years after the original left off in 1930, Rose makes an emotional comeback to the London townhouse to serve the new family, under the steely Lady Agnes Holland.

Interestingly, co-creator and star of the show Jean Marsh is reprising her role as Rose Buck, originally a lowly parlour maid but now elevated to housekeeper. The other mastermind behind the show, Dame Eileen Atkins, didn’t act in the original series but now plays the formidable matriarch of the aristocratic family who move in ‘upstairs’ at 165 Eaton Place.

Art Malik, Anne Reid, Ed Stoppard, Adrian Scarborough, Ellie Kendrick and Nico Mirallegro are also part of the cast. A full-scale replica of Eaton Place has been built at studios in Cardiff and filming begins next month. BBC is planning to screen the drama as early as autumn and it will be broadcast on Masterpiece in the US shortly after it makes its British debut. They hope to find similar success to the original, which was broadcast in more than 70 countries to an audience of more than a billion.

Writer Heidi Thomas, who also scripted the successful BBC’s drama Cranford, said: ‘The series will be shot through with sensuality. This is a drama very much about warm-blooded human beings.

‘In a house like Eaton Place, there is a limit to what you can keep behind closed doors. The place is a pressure cooker and the tensions continue to rise and rise until they boil over.

‘Whether the characters are upstairs or downstairs they are ­living in close proximity to each other and these are the dramas that will engage viewers.’

Piers Wenger, head of drama at BBC Wales where the series is being made, said: ‘We are delighted to have secured the rights to Upstairs, Downstairs with the full blessing and support of the original co-creators.

‘This is not a remake but a ­completely new version, set in a different era with a whole new cast of characters.’

‘Pulse’ Screencaptures & More

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Pulse‘ aired yesterday on BBC3 and it’s easy to find a ton of glowing reviews – The Scotsman says it’s “grisly, grimy and intriguing” and could “prove another triumph for BBC3, following the hit show Being Human.” Herald.ie wrote that it’s “a deeply satisfying mixture of suspense and horror set in an NHS hospital”.

If you too, enjoyed the pilot episode and want to help it get picked up for a proper series be sure to leave a comment on the BBC 3 Blog (where you can also re-watch the entire episode). And here’s the Official PULSE Facebook Page.

Hannah who is played to beautiful affect by Claire Foy
- Monstersandcritics.com

Built around the impressively versatile Claire Foy, fresh from sneering up a storm in Going Postal, Pulse aimed at a tricky mix of soap and supernatural and got it pretty much spot on. Caring without being cloying, Foy handled Hannah’s complicated backstory, which involved both a mental breakdown and a break-up (with the creepy Nick), with some aplomb.
- Metro.co.uk

The excellently understated Claire Foy playing trainee doc Hannah. … Good performances, most notably from Claire Foy as a traumatised trainee doctor, Hannah Carter, resuming her studies following the death of her mother.
- The Guardian

Foy makes for a convincing heroine, and plays the part with the right mix of vulnerability and determination to prevent her character from sliding into the typical woman-in-peril clichés that the horror genre so frequently falls back on.
- Den of Geek

What is absolutely certain is this is a first-rate cast, headed by Claire Foy of Little Dorrit fame as junior doctor Hannah.
- Mirror.co.uk

So what does the writer, Paul Cornell think of Claire as the heroine in his show? “The way the emotion works through that cast is tremendous. Claire Foy, who appears in almost every frame, did such an amazing job, and it’s wonderful to see.” (source) “The casting here is excellent, though. Claire Foy really does heavy lifting. It’s her quest, she’s the centre for us.” (source)

Here’s an interview where Claire herself talks about ‘Pulse‘:

Assuming ‘Pulse‘ gets commissioned by the BBC for a full series we’ll be looking at transmitting in late March or early April of 2011 – according to its producer Simon Heath (source). Don’t forget to leave your positive comments on the BBC 3 Blog.
