Foe Flash: Claire Forlani, Ewan Bremner in the News
Several mentions of the family Foe today, as there are new articles focusing on Mister (Hallam) Foe cast members Claire Forlani and Ewan Bremner.
First, Claire Forlani is featured on the cover of the Evening Standard Magazine. Unlike many of the papers who charge you IMO a lot to read the digital copies of their weekly magazines, such as woefully The Herald in Glasgow, where I believe they've had quite a bit of Sigma/Foe news that I have been unable to read-boo!, the Evening Standard magazine can be accessed by all. Just as Jamie Bell (Hallam Foe) was featured recently, so too is there a nice article and great new photos of the actress who played the (evil?) stepmother Verity in Hallam Foe. The piece dwells mostly on her new marriage to Dougray Scott and her flourishing career. Life does seem to be treating her right, as she attended the premiere of Flashbacks of a Fool (staring Daniel Craig who stars with Jamie Bell in the upcoming Defiance) and she looked fabulous!
Speaking of fabulous, the always wonderful Ewan Bremner also was out and about lately, attending the premiere of "Fools Gold" in London as well. The Scotsman has a nice feature on the versatile actor, where Mr. Bremner discusses having a career in Hollywood, while sticking to his Scottish roots and living in Edinburgh. He also mentions his role in Hallam Foe, as the article says quote:
"But at the same time he has made more films in Scotland than Sean Connery and admits it was nice to be able to walk to work when he played a hotel concierge in David Mackenzie's recent offbeat sexual drama Hallam Foe, with Jamie Bell and Sophia Myles."I love the city. I love living there. I like it because you can walk around," he says. "To tell you the truth, the things that I've done in Scotland generally, things like Hallam Foe and 16 Years of Alcohol, are because the film-maker is a friend and they have asked me to come and do a little bit." Yay for David and making that casting move for sure! Ewan Bremner received many good notices for his funny turn in the film, and it was so nice to see him in a role like that.
Bonus video: The EXCELLENT teaser trailer for Hallam Foe which is ten time better than the official full length one
