Claire Foy is a major talent. She is a fantastic actress, she is strikingly beautiful and she has an amazing personality. And best of all, she is starring opposite Nicolas Cage as “the Witch” in Season of the Witch. While she may be appearing opposite Nic Cage and Ron Perlman, she steals the show with her wild and terrifying performance.
iamROGUE.com recently had the chance to talk with Claire and we briefly spoke about her work in Little Dorrit and Going Postal, but we talked a lot about playing a witch in her latest. She is funny and extremely charming. She opened up about working with Nic and Ron, researching the role, and about how it wasn’t the “boys club” that you might think.
Dread Central has more clips from ‘Season of the Witch‘. Watch them on their site or below the cut.
Thanks to Georgia from Talulah Riley Network all our ‘Season of the Witch‘ Production Stills have been replaced with high quality versions. And there’s one new still. I also replaced the screencaptures of the interview with Nicolas Cage with better quality ones and added the caps from the new interview posted yesterday.
Claire Foy is featured in today’s You magazine with a brand-new photoshoot and interview well worth a read. She talks about her upcoming projects Upstairs Downstairs and Season of the Witch and how looks and fame are not what’s important. You can find it on the Daily Mail Website.
I find fame a very abstract thing to think about – I don’t think that will happen to me. I would hate to be hounded. I think it would be terrible to be Sienna Miller or Keira Knightley and be turned into this paparazzi person. I’d love to have their careers but not what goes with it.
Obviously, when I was a teenager I used to spend hours straightening my hair and I had terrible skin that used to really upset me. But when I was 18 I had a horrible growth on my eye that eventually had to be operated on. That taught me not to care so much about the way I looked. I got over myself. I don’t mind how I look for a part as long as it fits the character.
She is keen to keep her private life out of the spotlight. But with a starring role in the hotly anticipated revival of Upstairs, Downstairs and a US premiere on the way, can Claire Foy avoid getting the Keira and Sienna treatment?
Claire Foy is hungry. It’s midday in the ground-floor café at the National Theatre and she is eating a slice of lemon drizzle cake so big that it’s a wonder the fragile beauty – brilliantly cast in the leading role of the BBC’s award-winning adaptation of Little Dorrit – has the strength to lift it.
Between mouthfuls, the 26-year-old actress explains that she has just finished an audition that had made her so nervous she had skipped breakfast. ‘I really want the part so I can’t possibly tell you what it is because then I know I won’t get it. It’s a bit too good to be true,’ she says a little plaintively. Continue reading ‘It would be terrible to be turned into a paparazzi person’
Nicolas Cage’s latest film, Season of the Witch, which opens January 7th, 2011, has released a new, exclusive clip to iamROGUE! Cage and Ron Perlman (a former “Rogue of the Week”) discuss, “Is that the witch?!?” while staring at a beautiful, innocent-looking young woman (Claire Foy) in a cage (no pun intended).
Nicolas Cage and Claire Foy talk about their roles in the upcoming film Season of the Witch by director Dominic Sena and starring Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Stephen Campbell Moore, Robert Sheehan and Christopher Lee.
There’s also a new trailer for the January 2011 release of Season of the Witch – it has more Claire Foy in it and shows her character as more complex, also it seems as if they’re marketing the movie now as more of a cross between historical drama and horror than just horror. Looks exciting! Watch it in HQ on Apple.com.
Oscar(r) winner Nicolas Cage (National Treasure, Ghost Rider) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hellboy II, Sons of Anarchy) star in this supernatural action adventure about a heroic Crusader and his closest friend who return home after decades of fierce fighting, only to find their world destroyed by the Plague. The church elders, convinced that a girl accused of being a witch is responsible for the devastation, command the two to transport the strange girl to a remote monastery where monks will perform an ancient ritual to rid the land of her curse. They embark on a harrowing, action-filled journey that will test their strength and courage as they discover the girl’s dark secret and find themselves battling a terrifyingly powerful force that will determine the fate of the world.
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.comProduction 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!
Lionsgate announced today that it won’t be releasing the Dominic Sena-directed supernatural thriller Season of the Witch on the crowded date of March 19th as was previously scheduled. There, the film was facing four other wide releases, including The Bounty Hunter, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Repo Men, and The Runaways.
The studio has not yet set a new date for the film, starring Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Stephen Campbell Moore, Robert Sheehan, Claire Foy, Ulrich Thomsen, Stephen Graham and Christopher Lee.
