I’ve added the Production Notes for ‘Tristan & Isolde’. It’s an interesting read.
“Sophia is very talented and very instinctual,” says executive producer Jim Lemley. “We felt that she was innocent enough, smart enough and daring enough to be Isolde. We knew that as soon as she walked out of the reading. Everyone else saw the tape and was blown away by her.”
“I was incredibly moved by the script,” Myles recalls. “I couldn’t put it down. This was so rich and compelling to read but at the same time it’s a frustrating story because you desperately want them to be able to be together, but they can’t be.”
“It’s period, but they’re so comfortable to wear,” she says. “Maurizio has such amazing taste. He has made everything not only look incredible but feel so wonderful to wear. It’s all silk and they’re wonderful, really, really wonderful.”
