UK Cinema Arrival of ‘Outlander’ approaching

Finally! ‘Outlander‘ is released in cinemas throughout Sophia’s homecountry this coming Friday, April 24! has a competition to win a VIP private ‘Outlander’ screening for you & your mates. To participate you have to be a UK resident, register at their website and give the correct answer to this question “What do you call a monster with one eye?” before the end of April 25. Good luck!

Also on you can shorten the wait till Friday by watching their exclusive ‘Outlander‘ clip of the movie’s beginning.

I’ve come across some new reviews. Apparently Jonathan Ross spoke favourably about the movie in his show and The Mirror singled out Sophia Myles for praise in their short and lukewarm review: “but it moves at a fair old pace and features a great performance by Sophia Myles as a Viking princess.”

As always I’m extremely grateful for anything you UK fans might come across. Thanks for keeping your eyes open!

Oh, and Sophia’s ‘Doctor Who‘ episode “Girl in the Fireplace” re-airs tonight on BBC3 at 7pm.

New interview

Again, from the set of ‘Moonlight‘ but a bit more extensive than the recent ones. Sophia Myles talks of course about vampires and her character Beth but also about the comparisons between the ‘Doctor Who‘ episode ‘The Girl in the Fireplace’ and ‘Moonlight‘, about her upcoming movie ‘Outlander‘ as well as her beginnings as an actress.

Sophia Myles On The Set Of ‘Moonlight’, MediaBlvd Magazine, May 16

The minute I walked onto a film set, I just completely fell in love, hook, line and sinker. I was madly in love with it. From then on, I knew that that was the only thing I wanted to do, so I got myself an agent and just kept plowing away.

Doctor Who Action Doll

Wow! Sophia Myles has joked about never getting an action doll of one of her characters despite starring in a number of Sci-Fi films only recently in her interview with MediaBlvd Magazine.

Now, Nicole informs me that on January 31, 2008 one of the new Micro-Universe Spacecraft Sets will be the S.S. Madame de Pompadour from the Doctor Who episode ‘Girl in the Fireplace’ – also starring Sophia Myles as Madame de Pompadour. And guess what? The miniature spacecraft comes with a detailed painted figure of Madame de Pompadour herself! Click here to preview & preorder. Many thanks Nicole!

‘Doctor Who’ in the States

I’ve never really kept up with the status of ‘Doctor Who’ outside of the UK. So thank you to Aaron for bringing me up to speed.

Apparently, the 2nd series has aired already (incl. episode 4 also starring Sophia Myles) and has been available on DVD since January 16th this year. Buy Doctor Who: The Complete Second Series on Amazon.Com. The extras seem to be the same as on the UK DVD. Especially interesting for us: In-Vision commentary for episode 4 by David Tennant and Sophia Myles (and a producer), Outtakes and David Tennant’s video diaries.

I’ve added some more ‘Art School Confidential’ Portraits from last year’s Sundance Film Festival and replaced the Empire Australia Outtakes (2002) with HQs. Thanks to Kathy.
