I added 2 pictures from the upcoming TV movie ‘Going Postal‘ which show Claire Foy as Adora Belle Dearheart. Sky One will be airing this “story of sweet romance and dark revenge set against an ongoing dispute between a traditional postal system and Discworld’s equivalent of the internet” in April 2010. Stay tuned for the exact dates as well as hopefully more and/or better pictures. In the meantime the official plot synopsis:
When life as a travelling con artist catches up with swindler Moist Von Lipwig (Coyle), it looks as though he will face the death penalty. But awarded a last minute reprieve, Lipwig is given one more chance on the condition that he takes up the cursed role of postmaster, and transforms Ankh-Morpork’s decrepit post office. Making an immediate enemy of bloodthirsty tyrant Reacher Gilt (Suchet), Lipwig’s first instinct is to run… until he meets the spellbinding Adora Belle Dearheart (Foy) with whom he falls in love. But what they both are unaware of is the part Lipwig played in the downfall of the Dearheart family. Is their romance forever doomed?
Added two photos from the British Academy Television Craft Awards 2009, the Russian poster for Season of the Witch and two brand new Wreckers stills.
Wreckers is a drama with a dark, erotic heart, and a unique twist on the theme of the returning soldier.
A dark tale of love, desire and secrets, between brothers and a new bride. Starring Claire Foy, Benedict Cumberbatch and Shaun Evans.
Wreckers was shot on 16mm last Summer on location in the Fens and outside London.
Claire Foy was one of the young starlets in InStyle’s BAFTA portfolio and was working a high street look in her LBD by H&M.
Claire Foy is featured alongside Olivia Grant and Bonnie Wright in the March 2010 issue of InStyle UK. The photo is brand new and absolutely lovely.
You might recognise her from: Little Dorrit.
What’s next? Going Postal, Season of the Witch, Homeland.
Stellar moment: “A highlight of 2009 for me was working on Season of the Witch with Nicolas Cage — he’s eccentric but also such a lovely, genuine man. I’m gutted that I’ll be working and won’t be able to go to the premiere.”
On Monday 28th December 2009, Sky One aired the 8th Episode of 10 Minute Tales, Through The Window, written and directed by Barry Skolnick.
Lee Ingleby is The Man, and Claire Foy is The Woman. This poignant period piece reminds viewers that though loved ones can be lost, they can never be forgotten. A young soldier, who has been away at war, returns to find that his lover has been killed in the Blitz. Miraculously, their child managed to survive the deadly blast. The years pass and, as the widower and his daughter grow older, we learn that the deceased never truly departed… Eternal love is celebrated in this haunting, but tender tale.
