Chud.com talks to Sophia & Jamie

Chud.com was also attending the “Mister Foe” press junket a couple of weeks ago. They published their transcript of the interview with Sophia Myles and Jamie Bell and I think it’s very nice to see the interaction between the two. Apart from the movie (obviously) they talk about who’s more damaged, Kate or Hallam, who they’d like to work with in the future and James Franco being funny (Sophia already knew that of course).

Myles: I think as you get older (I don’t know if you’ve found this.) but within the industries, when you start off acting, it’s kind of rather selfish motives; you are the kid who just wants to get paid to throw on the costumes and pretend to be someone else. The more experience that you have and the more films that you make, you start to realize that as a storyteller, it’s not just about you and the film’s experience for yourself. It becomes about your audience. And you realize, “Wow, I actually have the power here to make a piece… As opposed to the movies that are out there right now that just provide purely escapism for an hour and a half while you go and eat popcorn and forget about your own life…

Bell: Rising fuel prices, rising fuel prices I need some escapism… [All Laugh]

Myles: Films like this which deal with such archetypal themes of self-discovery, the search for love, and the fear of death, that can really actually affect the audience and take the viewer to somewhere deeper within themselves. That’s what it becomes about.

New York Magazine talks to Sophia

This new interview with Sophia Myles comes from New York Magazine’s culture and entertainment blog Vulture. Out of all the recent interviews this seems like the most relaxed. Be sure to read Sophia’s answers to questions about Mister Foe, Moonlight and Outlander.

Jamie, as far as I’m concerned, is a national treasure. I would say he’s right up there at the top of my favorite co-stars, because in any scene between him and I, he’s so good and moving that all I had to do was just react to whatever he was doing. He’s made this seamless transition from child star to adult star without any of the rehab and all the nonsense.

(about the status of Outlander) It’s taking a while to come out. As always, there’s drama, I think, behind the scenes. I’m not entirely sure. No one tells me because I’m just the actress. It will come out, and it’s not true that it’s going straight to DVD….

Parade talks to Sophia

Another new interview. This time around from Parade Magazine. Reading the title “Sophia Myles On Her First On-Screen Kiss” made me expect little but there are some nice quotes in there about enjoying the single life, growing up, living in LA and playing a Viking princess.

I think when I was younger I was kind of looking for somebody to come along to complete me. And I’ve realized now that I have to basically be complete — I have to complete myself. And then the right thing will come. I’m enjoying the single life. I’m enjoying taking this time for myself because I think it’s important.

My philosophy exactly! Read the full interview.

According to Videota the US DVD for Mister Foe will come out November 11, 2008.

Dark Horizons talks to Sophia

Brand new interview has arrived. Dark Horizons published their exclusive interview with Sophia Myles about “Mister Foe“. They call her performance in the film alluring – something I absolutely agree with! It’s an interesting interview and I like some of the slightly new elements she brings to her answers – in comparison to the UK “Hallam Foe” interviews from last year.

Well, I think, you know, as an actor – I mean, I think I make my living pretending to be someone else, so I think that element of kind of wearing a mask – which I think Kate does. I think she has a kind of professional mask that she puts on every day in the office, but it’s only through – it’s through Hallam’s eyes that the audience sees who she really is.

… But underneath it all – there’s a purity there that I think she’s attracted to. And I also think she’s not stupid. And she knows that he’s gonna – you know, he’s gonna age well. You know, he’s got potential. [LAUGHTER] I like also the fact that a relationship between an older girl and a younger guy was explored. Because I haven’t seen that for a while on film.

It really is a film that kind of deals with archetypal themes, you know? So it’s gonna have a profound effect on the human soul. I mean, it deals with the search for love. You know, it’s about a voyage of self-discovery and growth, and also the fear of death. It’s going to make people think. And it will make them feel. How it’s gonna make them feel? I’m really not one to judge. But again, you know, the sexuality in the movie, it’s not – like, all of the sex scenes, they’re not there to be sexy. They’re not sensual.

She also talks about working long hours for “Moonlight” – which is “kind of dead, completely dead” and not coming back – and how she felt about the show’s sudden end:

Everything happens for a reason. It was a massive shock that it finished, because we were all expecting to go into a second season and I would have welcomed that. But the powers that be have decided that it won’t go any further, so. I’m excited that I’m now free to do movies again.

Be sure to read the full interview in our press archive to read Sophia’s quotes about working with director David Mackenzie, dancing in front of Billy Elliot Jamie Bell, finding good projects and the massive Moonlight fanbase.

I like to kind of spice things up a bit, and always keep people guessing.
