I replaced some of the scans added in the afternoon with nicer versions – now that I’m on my own computer with access to graphics programs – as well as a new scan from Woman. Also Natalie found the new ‘Spooks‘ still as featured in today’s The Sun (scan added earlier) in a nicer quality on their website.
I added new scans sent in by Lorna and added some additional scans to the sets from yesterday, thanks to the generosity of Ali from Richard Armitage Net. Even if there’s no Sophia it’s still nice to see her new project featured on the cover of TV Magazines. Also messageboard member Felicia typed up those articles with Sophia-relevant bits. Thank you everybody so much!
Beth’s based on a real woman, who I’ve met. When she [the real person] was 18 – and studying English at Edinburgh University – she was head-hunted by MI6. She was picked to undergo their fast-track selection process. It’s about two blocks of six months.
She meets Lucas and they end up helping each other solve this problem. Beth reconnects with Harry, who she met years ago, at MI5 HQ and asks him for a job. Lucas is suspicious of Beth because she’s from the private sector. She also tries to take the mickey out of Lucas and he doesn’t like that!
I sat down to watch a few [Spooks episodes] and I was absolutely terrified. I can never watch them late at night. They stress me out too much. I go to bed with heart palpitations!
Be sure to read the articles to find out more as well as what drew her to the project even if she hadn’t watched it before. If you want to remain spoiler-free however, I suggest you postpone looking at the scans and articles until you’ve seen episode 1.
TV Choice Magazine added a new interview with Sophia Myles in which she talks about her character Beth Bailey on ‘Spooks‘ as well as her Hollywood experience and her year off! I can’t even begin to list all the interesting bits as it’s all very interesting – and needless to say it’s fabulous to read a Sophia interview about 2 years after she promoted ‘Mister Foe‘ in the US.
I’ve also started adding some scans from TV Magazines by Lorna to the gallery. I’m limited in my time to update until the evening so stay tuned for more!
On the day I heard about it [Spooks], a really spooky thing happened. I went to the theatre to see a friend of mine in a play at the Royal Court in London. In the play was Rupert Penry-Jones, and then in the bar afterwards, I met Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris. Then I’m in the cab on the way back and I get an email saying, ‘Would you be interested in Spooks?’ and I thought, ‘I don’t have a choice.’
Earlier tonight the trailer for ‘Spooks‘ debuted on BBC One and messageboard member Natalie recorded it for the site! Many many thanks! It looks really slick and I can’t wait to see more next week! Enjoy!
