Watch out for…

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Claire Foy, who will feature in Rosewater, written and directed by Daily Show host Jon Stewart. The film will shoot later this month on locations in Jordan and the UK.
Stewart’s movie is an adaptation of the 2011 book Then They Came For Me: A Family’s Story Of Love, Captivity And Survival, and is about the imprisonment in Iran’s notorious Evin prison of Maziar Bahari, an Iranian-born documentary film-maker and journalist who travelled from Canada to cover the 2009 presidential election in Tehran.
Bahari, accused of being a spy for MI6, the CIA, Mossad and bizarrely, Newsweek magazine, was held for 118 days, during which time his wife, Paola Gourley (Foy), a London-based lawyer, was experiencing a complicated pregnancy. Gael Garcia Bernal will portray Bahari, with Shohreh Aghdashloo as his mother.
Rosewater refers to the scent favoured by Bahari’s interrogator. Bahari had appeared on Stewart’s show before his Iranian ordeal.

CLAIRE FOY: ANATOMY OF MY OUTFIT

CLAIRE FOY: ANATOMY OF MY OUTFIT

We caught up with the star of Little Dorrit and Upstairs Downstairs at a tea party held at the Kate Spade New York boutique in Chelsea to celebrate the Chelsea Flower Show.

The 29-year-old actress is currently filming Vampire Academy with Olga Kurylenko and Gabriel Byrne.

‘It takes me about five hours to get ready,’ she told us. ‘I’m not very good at it – I spend a lot of time standing and staring at my wardrobe and not achieving much.

‘Then I suddenly think of something I want to wear only to discover it’s in the wash’

Jewellery I wear this Monica Vinader necklace every day. It was a gift from the producers when I did Macbeth with James McAvoy at London’s Trafalgar Studios. I love all of Monica’s designs and they make perfect presents. My bracelet is from Cos. I’m loving fluoro accessories for summer.

T-shirt This is from Asos – I’m a big fan of online shopping. I’m not sure why I chose this, but I do love Paris so I guess it makes sense.

Clutch bag I love the colour of this Kate Spade New York bag – everything this label does adds an instant injection of fun and style to your outfit. I want it all!

Trousers These cost me £10 in the Whistles sale about nine million years ago when I had an office job and needed to look smart every day. They are such a great fit and I’ve bought Whistles trousers ever since.

Shoes I call these leopard-print numbers my emergency shoes. I panic-bought them before I went to an awards do. They are by Mulberry and they weren’t cheap. But I now wear them whenever I have to dress up for something, so it makes it OK.

‘Chimerica’ – After Party

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Headlong’s world premiere of Lucy Kirkwood’s Chimerica opened at the Almeida Theatre last night (28 May 2013).

The play follows the aftermath of the famous 1989 Tiananmen Square photo, centring on the American journalist who took the photo, who more than 20 years later begins to question the fate of the unknown protester in his shot.

This investigation leads to a deep examination that explores the relationship between China and America, and the influences each country has on the other.

The production is directed by Lyndsey Turner and runs until 6 July 2013.

Claire Foy at the Olivier Awards

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Macbeth‘ finished its eighty day run last Saturday. The production was a phenomenal success, was entirely sold out and surprisingly received two nominations at this year’s Olivier Awards (instead of next year’s): for Best Revival and James McAvoy for Best Actor. The Olivier Awards were held yesterday at the Royal Opera House in London and sadly the Olivier Award in the two categories didn’t go to ‘Macbeth‘ but to ‘Long Day’s Journey Into Night‘ and Luke Treadaway respectively.

Claire Foy attended the event and looked absolutely gorgeous wearing a strapless 1958 Hartnell black silk and velvet gown by William Vintage.

I added a few pictures, some of them in high quality. Enjoy!

Meet the Macbeths (James McAvoy & Claire Foy)

Posted by Mia with No Comments

from ATG’s Magazine / by Imogen Sarre & Jasper Rees

Roughly how old are the Macbeths?

We know they have had at least one child, presumed dead, but beyond that Shakespeare offers no further clue. Such is the trajectory of their moral degradation that audiences, and indeed casting directors, tend not to think of the Thane of Glamis and his wife as still having the bloom of youth on their cheeks. Thus the lead role can happily be taken on by someone in his 60s, as happened with Patrick Stewart when the play was most recently revived in the West End.

But now the Hollywood star James McAvoy brings the zip and springiness of someone known mainly for playing callow young men in the likes of The Last King of Scotland, Atonement and The Last Station. He turns 34 during his run in the role at the Trafalgar Studios, and the latest King of Scotland is joined in matrimony to Claire Foy, who turns 29 in April but looks young enough to have twice played teenagers in 2012: at the Royal Court in Mike Bartlett’s Love Love Love and in the BBC drama White Heat.
