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.

“Mister Foe” Press Junket

I’ve added pictures of Sophia Myles and Jamie Bell at the afore-mentioned “Mister Foe” Press Junket. It took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this past Tuesday, August 26. I can’t wait to for more interviews to surface – which I’m sure they will next week when the film officially comes to theatres. Let’s keep our eyes open!

Small audio interview & more

After Tuesday’s press junket for “Mister Foe” the first interview with Sophia Myles has surfaced online. It’s an audio snippet and is available on Hollywood Outbreak. Listen to Sophia talking about the stigma that’s attached to vicar’s daughters and the sex scenes in this movie. Thanks Stacey for the heads up!

On other news 10-year-old Shelby interviewed Alex O’Loughlin for her website and he mentioned Sophia Myles when answering a question about who made him laugh on the “Moonlight” set. Listen to the interview here. (Allow some time for the site to load as there is currently an overflow of visitors to that site). Thanks moviefnatic for the heads up!

I’d also like to bring something from a post’s comments section to everyone’s attention. It’s some new information regarding the “Outlander” DVD rumour. Official word from The Weinstein Company (US distributors) is that there is NO OFFICIAL DVD date yet for the movie. That was just an error on the parts of the two e-commerce sites that listed it. In fact The Weinstein Company will be reaching out to the two retailers (Movies Unlimited and Amazon) and will hopefully have that erroneous information removed. Thanks for the heads up echorock!

‘Hallam Foe’ Goodies

Not sure which title to use. But with all the excitement that ‘Hallam Foe‘ finally gets released in the US as ‘Mister Foe‘ I remembered I still had some goodies hiding in some folder on my computer.

There are 2 really lovely interviews with Sophia Myles that I found on the German and Swiss DVD editions respectively. Even though the “Swiss” interview looks like the ZDF interview – they were both conducted at the Berlin Film Festival – this one is actually even better. Also straight from last year’s edition of the Berlin International Film Festival: the ‘Hallam Foe’ Photocall & Press Conference as aired on the Livestream at the time. Enjoy!

Again, be sure to check out the movie’s play dates on the distributor’s website and if you’re in any way able to get HD TV don’t forget the entire movie will be shown as a Sneak Preview on HDNet Movies, September 3 at 8 PM ET, with encores at 9:45 PM ET and 11:30 PM ET. I’m sure watching these interviews will get you all excited for the movie!
