Claire Foy as Jan in her professional stage debut.
Total Film’s Future 100: everything that matters over the next 12 months.
Thanks to my friend Luciana, we have HQ screencaptures from Claire’s guest appearance in the pilot episode of Being Human.
Being Human is a supernatural drama from the BBC that revolves around the concept of two young men—Mitchell and George–sharing a flat. While this seems like a tried and tested formula for television the twist is that Mitchell (Aidan Turner – The Tudors) is a vampire and George (Russell Tovey – Little Dorrit, The History Boys) is a werewolf. Complicating matters further is pair’s newfound home is haunted by the ghost of Annie (Lenora Crichlow – Sugar Rush).
The “complete” series 1 is already available on DVD in the UK, but… while this is a great show, its DVD release is shockingly poor. This is a terrible DVD “complete” set, one of the very worst lack of efforts they’ve ever done. The BBC did an astounding job of producing extra material for this show for their website (short features filmed specially for the site showing some of the history of the leads prior to the show, actors filming behind the scenes diaries, etc) and for BBC3 (the excellent Unearthed documentary and the pilot episode that started the whole thing). And NONE of it is on the “complete” DVD. On top of that, much of the distinctive music from the show which helped set the atmosphere has been replaced with bland stock stuff.
In a team effort we bring you today HQ photos of Claire at 3 different events and on location on August 25, 2008 on the set of ‘Little Dorrit‘. Most of these simply replace pictures we previously had in the gallery but there are also a few new ones. Enjoy!
Finally something new to update Claire Foy Source with! 😀
Like Guy had informed us in the beginning of July, Claire Foy was then filming the low-budget drama Wreckers, with locations in London and a village in rural Cambridgeshire called Isleham.
Now that the August issue of the Isleham Informer is out, we have a scan from director Dictynna Hood’s interview that also features two photos from the production. The film is currently in post-production and its storyline is broadly described as a ‘moody psychological love story.’ Co-stars include Benedict Cumberbatch (Atonement), Shaun Evans (Telstar) and Sinead Matthews.
I’ve added scans from last year’s You featuring the ‘Young British Actresses to Watch’.
Welcome to Claire Foy Source aka Claire-Foy.org, your newest and first source for Claire Foy! After a few weeks of having up only a temporary site and gallery, we have opened the full version of the site. Claire Foy Source is owned and operated by Anna and Mia. We’ve recently discovered Miss Foy in Little Dorrit and decided to build this site as a tribute to this young actress who managed to captivate our attention like a veteran actress. We tried to make this site as complete as could be, but, at the moment, there isn’t much about Claire out there. Please stay tuned because Claire Foy Source will keep growing, just like Miss Foy’s career! We hope you enjoy this tribute we’ve built for the English star on the rise.
