Check out our project page for Claire Foy’s new ITV documentary. She plays Helen Bentwich, a clever young woman who chafed against the restrictions placed on her sex – and seized the chance to work in the arms factories at Woolwich Arsenal, before becoming appalled by the conditions there and joining a trade union.
The four part documentary started airing on ITV earlier this month. Claire Foy was first featured in episode 3 which aired last Sunday. She will also be featured in episode 4.
The Telegraph had praise for Claire Foy:
Claire Foy gives a convincing, spirited performance as Helen Bentwich, who seized the chance to work in munitions factories.

‘Crossbones‘ premiered last night – we will have HQ screencaps up soon – and there are stills of Claire Foy in the first episode. I’ve also added the featurette First Look and screencaps. Enjoy!
Promotion for ‘Crossbones’ is gearing up as its premiere date May 30 approaches. The official website has now content as does the official Facebook page. We got character portraits and stills from Episode 1. We added the ones featuring Claire Foy to the gallery, thank you Nicole. And today the trailer was released! It certainly looks exciting!
We also updated the sidebar and added a new page in the projects section as well as some pictures of Claire Foy at the party on February 8 when filming finished in Puerto Rico, courtesy of SeePalmas.com.
Less than a month until ‘Vampire Academy – Blood Sisters‘ featuring Claire Foy in the supporting role of teacher Sonya Karp gets released world wide on February 14. I have not come across much information relating to Claire’s part in this movie among the promotion material. If you do please let us know.
‘Macbeth‘ finished its eighty day run last Saturday. The production was a phenomenal success, was entirely sold out and surprisingly received two nominations at this year’s Olivier Awards (instead of next year’s): for Best Revival and James McAvoy for Best Actor. The Olivier Awards were held yesterday at the Royal Opera House in London and sadly the Olivier Award in the two categories didn’t go to ‘Macbeth‘ but to ‘Long Day’s Journey Into Night‘ and Luke Treadaway respectively.
Claire Foy attended the event and looked absolutely gorgeous wearing a strapless 1958 Hartnell black silk and velvet gown by William Vintage.
I added a few pictures, some of them in high quality. Enjoy!
On Friday, April 19, 2013, the cast of the plays ‘Macbeth‘ – now finished its run – and ‘The Hothouse‘ – opening May 4 – attended a press conference held at the ‘Macbeth‘ set at Trafalgar Studios to mark the changeover in Jamie Lloyd’s Trafalgar Transformed season of plays. Actors present included James McAvoy, Claire Foy, Simon Russell Beale, John Simm and Harry Melling.

Roughly how old are the Macbeths?
We know they have had at least one child, presumed dead, but beyond that Shakespeare offers no further clue. Such is the trajectory of their moral degradation that audiences, and indeed casting directors, tend not to think of the Thane of Glamis and his wife as still having the bloom of youth on their cheeks. Thus the lead role can happily be taken on by someone in his 60s, as happened with Patrick Stewart when the play was most recently revived in the West End.
But now the Hollywood star James McAvoy brings the zip and springiness of someone known mainly for playing callow young men in the likes of The Last King of Scotland, Atonement and The Last Station. He turns 34 during his run in the role at the Trafalgar Studios, and the latest King of Scotland is joined in matrimony to Claire Foy, who turns 29 in April but looks young enough to have twice played teenagers in 2012: at the Royal Court in Mike Bartlett’s Love Love Love and in the BBC drama White Heat.
