The show was a mix of a play, involving the main character from
‘The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time’ (played again by Luke Treadaway). The plot was that he had to seek out help from various characters in order to stop Moriarty from preventing people understanding metaphors (or something).



d0160581_0141389.jpg
d0160581_18014964.png

There were pre-recorded segments by Matt Smith (playing The Doctor), Helen Mirren (playing the Queen), Ben Whishaw (playing Q from Bond) and Andrew Scott (as Moriarty).



primetime.unrealitytv より(青字部分)

The Audience brought together these huge names in television and theatre for one night only where viewers got to see what happens when Doctor Who came up against Sherlock’s Moriarty, as both actors were drafted in to play their own characters along with Mirren as part of a specially filmed scene.

In the play the Doctor tells Christopher that Moriarty is going to launch a computer virus that will destroy other peoples’ ability to comprehend metaphor, which is how Christopher’s life is, and that the result will be an end to all art.

The Doctor then calls the Queen (played by Helen Mirren) who enlists Christopher to visit MI5 to help James Bond character Q (played by Ben Whishaw from Skyfall) work on a solution.

BEN WAS SO LOVELY AND ADORABLE AS Q AND THEY TALKED ABOUT MATHS THINGS AND DREW ON GLASS AND YEAH.

d0160581_037158.jpg
JUDE LAW WAS ON STAGE PLAYING A TEACHER.

At the end of the show, they had an auction with various things that could be bid on. Some lucky (and rich) person bid £6,000 to have tea with Matt Smith at the Ritz!

Throughout there were musical guests, and then Simon Amstell came on and did a short set, part of it including how he was obsessed with Ben Whishaw and how he had talked about him in his stand-up and how he had created a fictionalised version of Ben in his sitcom. Then he talked about meeting Ben in person and how Ben had heard of his show but hadn’t seen it (Simon was offended that he’d not even bothered to watch, lol). He said he met Ben at a contemporary dance performance and took him down off a pedestal (somewhat) because Ben had been acting like a normal person and eating Revels. LOL. Anyway, Simon was hilarious and I love him.

‘A curious night at the theatre’ was perfect
◾Matt Smith, Ben Whishaw and Andrew Scott’s filmed bits were great, definitely my personal highlight.
◾Matt Smith answering the phone to Helen Mirren’s Queen by saying ‘wag1’!
◾Someone bid £6,000 to have tea with Matt Smith at the Ritz!
◾Luke Treadaway saying to Andrew Scott (as Moriarty) ”I’m not afraid of you” to which he replies ”Of course you’re not, I’m a skinny Irish man with a lovely smile”
◾Ben as Q <3 Saying to Luke Treadaway (who’s really 28 playing a 15 yr old)
’you’re very ripped for a 15 year old’!!

◾Jude Law being all good-looking
◾Also what a brilliant actor Luke Treadaway is
◾Simon Amstell’s bit on how Ben Whishaw ruined his life
◾On my way back from the toilet I then bumped into Simon Amstell sitting on the stairs of a very empty corridor, so I briefly spoke to him, telling him how I enjoyed his stand up and then a quick chat about how perfect Ben Whishaw is haha!
◾Mel Giedroyc is hilarious, perfect host
◾A great performance by the secret special guest, Chris Martin

*** おまけ ***

Taken from the book HELP by Simon Amstell.


A few years later, a week after the first series of Grandma’s House was broadcast on BBC2, I spotted the actor I had based one of the characters on, standing outside Saddlers Wells Theatre. Instant terror and excitement. Apparently we’d both booked tickets for the same contemporary dance show on the same night and yet, somehow, we still weren’t living together discussing art.


I thought I would casually go up to him and try to bring up the sitcom in a way that suggested I was clearly over him but had used all these ridiculous former feelings to create something beautiful. I wondered how he’d feel about me now. He hadn’t been that fussed about me being a TV presenter but now I was a proper comedian, a sort of actor and a writer who had written things about him.

I approached cautiously, said ‘hello’ in a way that suggested I was someone completely at peace with himself. He said ‘hello’ in a way that was hard to read. I said ‘I think I should maybe apologise to you’. He said, with a genuine sensitivity and concern. ‘Oh, what for?’ I replied, ‘I sort of fictionalised you in something that was just on TV.’ He looked a bit confused and then said ‘Oh, I think I heard about that.’ He’d heard about it. He hadn’t watched it? I thought, What do I have to do to get your fucking attention?


I actually felt quite good that evening. I was on a date with someone I was really falling for and we watched the show, I was incredibly happy to be with him, perhaps even happier than I would have ever been with this etherial actor person.


Six months later, that relationship ended and he went on to write a beautiful album. I listened to it, thinking, I imagine a few of these songs will be about me. None of them. You mustn’t date a singer-songwriter. Date a plumber, then you don’t know who they’re dedicating their piping to.

I want someone to write about me. Why can’t someone else write a book connecting all these bits of stand-up and deconstruct who I am? I’m so undignified to be sat here doing it myself.


Maybe the worst moment was seeing a photograph of my ex online, hugging the actor who had also rejected me. I put my hands over my face. I wasn’t in the picture. I was sat in my flat alone and there was no way either of them were saying, ‘How’s Simon?’


A year later, the actor was in another play at the Royal Court. So I thought I’d give myself one more go at making him love me. I felt I’d written and performed all the insanity out of my head and was now ready for something real. I believed this because it would have been unbearable to accept that after all that transformative, healing comedy, I was still the same lunatic.

I found him at the bar and we got talking again. I felt more relaxed then than I ever had with ham and I wasn’t pretending this time, I was actually relaxed, though I was also very impressed with how relaxed I was, so I can’t have been that relaxed.


We must have sat talking for around an hour and it was actually a really grounded, relationship-building conversation. The only moment of panic came when he told me that he’d seen a photo of me as a little boy somewhere, which he thought could have been him. The sudden lack of distance between us was too much for me. I started ranting about what a brilliant, sensitive child he must have been and what a stage-school maniac I was. He offered me a moment of connection and I couldn’t receive it. And then he revealed he was very happy with a boyfriend. A composer. I thought, OK, Simon, we tried our best, he’s happy, it’s enough now, he’s with a composer, we can’t beat that. Can he juggle?


He also told me he couldn’t email me back all those years ago for reasons more complicated and personal than anything to do with me being less brilliant than him. He hadn’t rejected me. I put on my coat, we hugged goodbye and I went to the toilet feeling relieved it was over. As I walked out of the toilet, feeling a real sense of completion, he walked in, which I wasn’t expecting. We’d had our hug goodbye and I didn’t know what else to say, so I said, ‘Composer, huh?’

イヴォ・ヴァン・ホーヴェ演出『ヘッダ・ガーブレル』鑑賞記

最終日だったので、仕事後に日本橋まで出かけました。行った甲斐あり!3000円も高くない!


ナショナル・シアター・ライブ

『ヘッダ・ガーブレル』
イプセン原作 イヴォ・ヴァン・ホーヴェ演出
d0160581_11013476.jpg
とにかく《大人》!
やられた!
面白い!
引き込まれる!
演出がシャープ!キレがいい!
一瞬もダレることなく、最後まで引っ張られた!

(※蛇足ですが、その真逆に、『ピーターとアリス』のマイケル・グランデージの演出の野暮さを思い出してしまった(すみません、グランデージさん)。正直な気持ち。浮かんできてしまった)

ホーヴェ監督の特徴は、ゲイのパートナーであるヤン(Jan Versweyveld)さんの舞台装置が、幾重にも芝居を奥深いものにしていること。

シンプルなセット
主人公ヘッダの荒廃した心情を表わすかのように味気ない
だが(いつもながら)簡素な美しさで統一されている室内
左からの光
ブラインド(蛇腹ともピアノの鍵盤とも・・・・・)のような闇か光かの白黒の世界。

ピアノの片手弾きのようなぽつぽつした音がバックに流れる
d0160581_11020799.jpg
ルース・ウィルソンの知性と野性が同居したようなファム・ファタール(周りの男をことごとく翻弄する)。真っ当な人生をおくれず、周囲に嫉妬と羨望。かしずくどの男にも満足できず、そんな生き方しかできない自分にも最終的に愛想をつかす。

レイフ・スポールの迫力!いやらしさ!怖さが本物!

滑舌がみんな見事で、聴きにくさがなかった。(今回のライブは録音もよかった)

そんなにガラスを使っているわけではないが、透明感があるので冷たく感じる全体像に、ソウルフルな歌が着いて、少し安心した。「え、こんなの使ってもいいの?」というくらい、(俗っぽいというと下卑てしまうが、)馴染みのあるもので意表をつかれ、痛さも含みながらも、血の温もりを感じられて、変な言い方だが救われた。最後にニーナ・シモンが流れなかったら、救われないかもしれない・・・・

ジョニ・ミッチェル『Blue』
ジェフ・バックリー『Hallelujah』
ニーナ・シモン『Wild is the Wind』
洗練と俗。その変のバランスも、絶妙にセンスがいい。

♪ ニーナ・シモンは、帰宅してからもへヴィ・ローテで聴きまくっています。(D.ボウイもこの曲カバーしてる)
 この一曲だけで、一つの人生のような完結した歌 ♪ (演歌っちゃ演歌です。笑)

(ベンが出た映画『ロブスター』の劇中に流れる曲 ダナエ 『死者の内側から』にもしびれた私)



***

生(なま)感!

火を焚く (ブロードウェイの『るつぼ』でも火を焚き、舞台にハスキー犬を放った)!
本当に本の原稿を燃やす!

(この時の、生な感覚と緊迫感は、
*昔見た紅テントの、水を使ったり、演歌を流したりの、唐十郎の芝居を思い出した。猥雑感が真逆な世界だが、《現実がまんまそこにある感》は。洗練されたところでは、ピナ・バウシュを思い出していいようなものだが・・・・・。
*初めてみたベン舞台”Some Trace of Her"で、正面のプロジェクターに映像を作るために、6台のビデオカメラを出番でない俳優たちが多角的に回しながらの、ケイティ・ミッチェルの、舞台裏混在の演出も”生感”満点だったが。
*日本で言えば、薪能の炎か。)


(パトリック・マーバーの)脚本もよかったのだと思う。流れも演出も役者の芝居もとにかく、観ているのを忘れるほど《自然》だった。2時間半もなんその。(今まで時間を長く感じたものは、やはり面白くなかったのだ・・・)

※ベンには悪いが、先ロンドン”Against”の口なおしができた。

***

ピストル
緊張感
緊迫感

花を浸けてあるバケツから取り出してビジバシ投げたり、叩きつけたり・・・・・
そして、工事中でまだ壁に壁紙もない部屋の壁に、ホチキスで壁面にあちこちその花をバチバチ留める・・・

レイフ・スポールが冷蔵庫から取り出したトマトジュースを、飲むのかと思いきや、飲んだものを口から
ヘッダ(ルース)の絹の白いランジェリーにこぼし、血のように汚す・・・口からしたたらすのを何度か繰り返し、あちこちを真っ赤に。。。言葉の毒がそのまま赤い血に変換されたかのよう。

(蜷川幸雄の『王女メディア』で、平幹二郎メディアが(口の中に隠していたロール状に巻いた)赤いテープリボンが、ヘビの赤い舌のように口から徐々に引き出されるのを思い出していた・・・)

演出法に驚くとともに、視覚的効果にまたもやられる!

汚い言葉と一緒に吐き出すように、汚す・・・

***

インターヴァルの後の監督と俳優のインタビューで、ルース・ウィルソンが監督の演出法について:
「中に思いを溜めない演出」
「何でもフィジカルに出せるので、楽だった」
「台詞を深読みしない。まんま言えばいい」

↓ はまた別のインタビュー





レイフ・スポール
「女性がコルセットを締めて、男性がハイカラ―のシャツを着ているような19世紀の世界を、今自分が観たいかといえば、ぼくは観たくない」




監督の言葉
「どんな古典劇を上演しても、そこに必ず現代が反映されていなければ、観客は面白くない」

私も★★★★☆


それにつけても、先月最初に、ホーヴェ監督、『オセロー』を引っ提げて初来日していたのに、知ったのが、その日の午前で、行けなかったのが、悔やまれてならない。

Times インタビュー☆ただ僕はマーマレードが好きじゃないんです

Ben Whishaw: ‘It’s fun playing Paddington Bear — I just don’t like marmalade’

The actor who provides the voice of Paddington talks about the hit film and playing a bear with a big heart

The Times :

d0160581_16395769.jpg

Shock, horror! Paddington Bear hates marmalade. “I really don’t like it at all,” says Ben Whishaw. The 37-year-old actor voiced the bear in the big-screen 2014 hit Paddington. Whishaw’s firm but gentle enunciation, already familiar from his pedantic Q opposite Daniel Craig’s Bond, is indivisible with the animated ursine hero. He has voiced him again for Paddington 2, in which the little bear’s attempts to buy a present for his Aunt Lucy land him in jail. Critics have widely adored it, as have the public. Last weekend the film was number one at the UK box office.


It feels odd to be talking to Whishaw about a bear in a duffel coat because I last met him 14 years ago when he had just taken London by storm with a coruscating Hamlet at the Old Vic, directed by Trevor Nunn. He was 23, not long out of drama school and seemed skinless, so close were his emotions to the surface. He shut down any talk of his private life — although gay, he had not spoken publicly about his sexuality — and would gain a reputation as a charming, but elusive interviewee. Today he has a string of impeccable stage and screen roles under his belt, and although still fine-featured and youthful, he has gained solidity and certainty. He came out in 2013, announcing that he had been in a civil partnership with the composer Mark Bradshaw since 2012.

d0160581_16410654.jpg

How does he think he’s changed in those 14 years? “It’s hard to quantify, but I am just more confident as a person,” he says. “Dealing publicly with [my] sexuality was a big thing, that was probably a weight last time I met you. The world’s really changed in that respect. If I was 23 now it would probably be different, it might be easier to talk about it. I hadn’t told my parents then or even some close friends.You don’t want to lie. But at the same time you don’t know how to discuss it, and it is all quite painful and weird and unresolved.”


Whishaw grew up in Bedfordshire where there was little gay culture in the Eighties and Nineties, he says, especially in his home village of Clifton (population 2,878 in 2011), where he grew up with his non-identical twin, James, and his mother, a former cosmetics saleswoman, after she split from his father, an IT specialist.


When Whishaw did come out, he didn’t know how his parents or his brother (who is tall, blond and straight, and the father of two young children) would react. “But you know, it was great,” Whishaw says. “It made me wonder why I had given myself such hell about it for so long, because it was fine. And I suppose because I had a partner, I was with someone, and they could see him and they liked him and could relate to him.” He and Bradshaw live in Hackney, east London, and have no desire to be married. “Mark is Australian so civil partnership is something we had to do in order to be together,” he says. “But I don’t have a strong feeling about marriage. It’s great that there is equality, but for myself I don’t need it.”


He has no wish for children, although he is an enthusiastic uncle. “I don’t have any desire at the moment, not the slightest inkling or urge, although I am told that sometimes changes,” he says. Does Mark feel the same? “We don’t really talk about it so I am guessing he doesn’t feel much either.”

When he was doing The Crucible in New York, a journalist mentioned a yoga mat and a crystal in his dressing room, fuelling speculation that he had gone all spiritual; this only grew when he mentioned a Buddhist nun he knew. “Someone gave me the crystal and I just liked it aesthetically,” he says with a sigh. “I am not a Buddhist. I am not an anything. My partner grew up in a Pentecostal church, so it is something we talk about a lot because that is a big thing for him. But I wasn’t raised with any religious belief.”

d0160581_16393115.jpg
For the record, he has stopped doing yoga, and he got into that only because he was bored with the gym. Everyone used to go on about his smoking and his early wish to be a painter, but he seems to have given these up, can’t cook and rarely listens to music at home (as it’s Mark’s job). What does he do for fun? “I have been working a lot this year,” he says, “so for me what’s fun and relaxing and reviving is just getting out of the city and seeing friends.”

When I ask which actors he remains on good terms with, the names he mentions — “Andrew Scott is a really dear friend; Romola [Garai] is a very dear friend; Anna Chancellor” — remind you of the diversity and depth of his career. He was Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited, John Keats in Bright Star. He was a chainsmoking hack in The Hour alongside Garai and an out- of-his-depth gay druggie in London Spy.


On stage he has played earthy John Proctor in The Crucible in New York and the great god Bacchus in north London. Then, of course, there’s his Q in the Bond films. “I like being that foil to 007,” he says with a smile. “I really never imagined I would be in Bond films and I still can’t really believe I am doing it.”

Now he is an animated bear once more. He says: “It’s really fun but it’s actually quite hard to do the voice.” Paddington 2 is a worthy successor to the first film, a clever mixture of wit, slapstick, emotion and social comment. The writer/director Paul King again gently reinforces the point that Paddington is not only a bear, but an orphan refugee. “I think what triggered the idea for [Paddington’s late creator] Michael Bond was seeing refugees back in the 50s,” Whishaw says. “So how we treat outsiders is in there. It’s about a human impulse to have open arms and look after people in greater need than yourself. And to see the good in people, which is really Paddington’s primary characteristic.”


Which makes it all the more bizarre that Paddington 2 has been touched, albeit indirectly, by the storm over sexual exploitation in the entertainment industry. Its producer David Heyman is trying to wrest the film’s American distribution rights back from The Weinstein Company. “It seems unfair to drag Paddington into that discussion when he [Weinstein] had nothing to do with the making of it,” Whishaw says. “It’s fantastic that people are speaking out about this kind of experience, and that there is no tolerance for it. Hopefully things will change now.”

THE HOLY GHOST ZONE


Youthful Stephanie enters the Holy Ghost Zone, while her boyfriend, Emmanuel, receives unlikely guidance as he prepares to enter the wilderness. A mixture of rapture and disenchantment, THE HOLY GHOST ZONE follows the inner experiences of two believers at opposite ends of the spiritual spectrum.



FROM ACTOR/PRODUCER BEN WHISHAW


For as long as I can remember I have dreamed of bringing together a small group of friends to make work that is personal and idiosyncratic and experimental, where we feel free to look at the things that interest us, however peculiar or difficult. So I'm delighted that this longing is finally taking shape in the form of THE HOLY GHOST ZONE.


Mark’s script is a gem. It does the thing I love films to do : it takes me into a world. A funny, strange, unfathomable little world. I’m very excited to be involved in producing the film as well as acting in it.


Ben x





FROM WRITER/DIRECTOR/COMPOSER MARK BRADSHAW


I left the church over 15 years ago, but I continue to look back. With THE HOLY GHOST ZONE, I intend to tell a tale both side-splitting and soul-shaking, a tale that playfully and perceptively explores concepts of belief and transformation.


This will be my first time directing a film of this sort, a challenge I’m looking forward to as I am passionate about this story and believe many will relate to its central themes.

We have assembled a talented and dedicated volunteer cast and crew. Most of the expense is in equipment hire, locations, accommodation and crew costs.


Please consider pledging and please do share our project with your friends and circles!

We can't wait to make this film with your help!

Thank you for your support!


Mark x

長年、温めていた作品が形になるのですね。(ずっと前に「教会についてあるストーリーを持っている」と言っていましたものね。でも、自分は書く人間ではないことを認めざるを得ず、誰か書くのを助ける人が必要だと・・・)パートナーのマークと完成にこぎ着けたのですね。

その念願がかなうせいか、自分のことを自分で決められる嬉しさか、ベン、子どものような笑顔(照れもある?)で支援者を募っていますね。。。


どうしてこんなに、急に話が決まったのかと思ったら、出演者の Fehinte Balogunさんや、Emma D'Arcy さんって、今 AGAINST で、一緒に舞台に立っている人たち。脚本ができていたのなら、出演者としての話が早かったのね。。。

「Mary Poppins Returns is set in 1930s depression-era London (the time period of the original novels) and is drawn from the wealth of material in PL Travers’ additional seven books. In the story, Michael (Whishaw) and Jane (Mortimer) are now grown up, with Michael, his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Walters), living on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and, along with the optimistic street lamplighter Jack (Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep).


Dick Van Dyke plays Mr. Dawes Jr., the chairman of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank, which is now run by William Weatherall Wilkins (Firth).


New music for the movie will be written by Hairspray‘s Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.」

PADDINGTON 2 ☆ World Premiere at BFI Southbank, Nov. 5

d0160581_06553618.jpg


Brexit, kindness, and a 'washed-up' Hugh Grant: Ben Whishaw and the cast on the making of Paddington 2  Telegraph 10 Nov. 2017

・・・・・ If Gleeson was a little disconnected from the other cast members, he didn’t have it nearly as bad as Whishaw, whose job involved 120 hours of recording sessions for a character who doesn’t even exist, visually speaking, when he starts out.

“When I record the voice I’m wearing this kind of helmet, which has a huge arm on it and then a camera stuck on the arm recording my face,” says Whishaw. “You can’t wear anything that wears a lot of noise or rustles. And then there are other microphones attached to you. It’s not that comfortable – or that conducive to giving a good performance.”

It’s a common but mistaken assumption that voice work in family films, especially ones of this complexity, is just a case of swanning in and reading off a script. But “Paul wouldn’t let you get away with that,” Whishaw explains. “He wants to engage with you, and wants your thoughts about judging every moment just right, getting the humour. It’s much more fine and fiddly than just putting some voice over something.”

So what of Paddington’s situation - as an immigrant to our shores now firmly settled as a British resident - especially after last year’s Brexit vote? Much was made, when the first film came out, of its gently welcoming stand in favour of multiculturalism.

“I’m certain it was on Paul’s mind. How could it not be?” says Whishaw. “I do remember him joking in rehearsal – ‘How did Brexit happen? Did people not watch Paddington?!’. Paul is brilliant at getting some of those themes or ideas in there in a way that’s funny, and light, and touching.”

King is certainly keen to downplay any ostentatious soapbox-climbing. “Different sides of different debates have been tearing each other to pieces forever,” he ruminates. “Remembering to love one another and be kind is never as needed as now. I don’t think it’s timely – I think it’s timeless

ヒュー・グラント ☆ グレアム・ノートンショーでの言及


The Graham Norton Show S22E07 - Nov 10, 2017

10:07
It's all been very confusing for me because Paddington Bear is voiced by Ben Whishaw who I'm also working with at the moment you know thing about Jeremy Thorpe. He's playing Norman Scott, my lover. So I’ve spent all year trying to either kill, imprison or bugger Ben Whishaw…”

「パディントン の声をベン・ウィショーが演じていますが、彼とはちょうど今 撮っている ご存じの”ジェレミー・ソープ事件" でも共演していて、彼が私の愛人=ノーマン・スコット役なので、何だか自分でも混乱しちゃうんですよ。私はこの一年、ベン・ウィショーを殺そうとしたり、投獄しようとしたり、騙したりすることに終始しているというか・・・」



「89歳の父親がプレミアに来て、映画の途中で「あれは本当のクマかね?」と訊いたんですよ」
「うちの親父、上映中に話すんですよ!」

ソープ事件 - Wikipedia よりピーター・ベッセル(Alex Jennings 演じる)の部分を一部抜粋

党で最も有名な人物(ジェレミー・ソープ)に奉仕したいと渇望していたベッセルは、1965年4月にダブリンへ飛んだ。彼はノーマン・ジョシフ(ノーマン・スコット)が、同情に満ちたイエズス会の聖職者、スウィートマン神父の助言を得ていると知る。スウィートマン神父は、少なくともジョシフの主張の一部は本当なのだろうと信じており、ベッセルに対し、なぜこの一件に対処するためにロンドンから飛んできたのか逆に尋ねた。ベッセルはジョシフに対し、公人を脅迫しようとするとどうなるか警告したが、それ以上に懐柔的な語り口で、失くした鞄と保険カードについて何とかしてやると請け合った。彼はまた、アメリカで騎手の職が得られる可能性についても仄めかした。ベッセルの仲裁は問題を封じ込めたかに見え、さらにジョシフの鞄はこの直後に持ち主の手に返ったが、ジョシフによれば、ソープに関係した手紙は全て除かれていたという。続く2年間のほとんどを、ジョシフは様々な職に就こうとしながらアイルランドで穏やかに過ごすが、中には男子修道院に入っていた時期もあった。
この頃、ジョシフは自身の名前を、正式に「スコット」と変えている。

d0160581_00115188.jpg


1967年4月、スコットはアイルランドからベッセルに手紙を書き、アメリカで新生活が始められるよう、新しい名前でのパスポートを得る助けをしてほしいと述べた。7月に書かれた、前向きさが少し失われた2通目の手紙では、スコットはイングランドに帰っており、医療費やその他の借金で再び窮状に陥っていることが述べられている。彼は保険カードを失くしたせいで、給付金を請求することもできなくなっていた。この時までに、ソープはジョー・グリモンドから自由党党首の座を引き継いでいた。スコットの喫緊の問題を解決し、新しい党首に対する彼の激しい非難が再燃するのを防ぐため、表面上は国民保険の給付金を肩代わりするという形で、ベッセルはスコットに週5〜10ポンド(2015年の82から164ポンドに相当)の「賄賂」を渡し始めた。ベッセルはスコットの新しいパスポートも工面してやったが、この時までにスコットはアメリカ行きを取り止め、モデルとしてキャリアを築こうと望んでいた。彼はモデル業を始める資金としてベッセルに200ポンド(2015年の3,274ポンドに相当)をねだり、ベッセルも1度は断ったものの、今年はこれ以上要求しないという言質を取った上で、1968年5月に75ポンド(2015年の1,173ポンドに相当)を渡している

The MP(Jeremy Thorpe) was disgraced and forced to resign in 1979. He died three years ago at the age of 85.

Meanwhile, his former lover retreated to Ireland to escape the glare of publicity.

But now Ben has tracked down and met Norman.

The pair spoke at length, a move that seems to indicate Norman’s support for the BBC show, which is currently being filmed and is expected to air next year.


A TV insider said: “Ben is the kind of actor who really likes to get under the skin of a character, so the natural thing to do was to speak to Norman.


“He really wanted to get his side of his amazing story.”

Synopsis:

In 1979, former Member of Parliament, Jeremy Thorpe, stood trial over accusations that he hired a hitman to kill his alleged ex-lover, Norman Scott. A Very English Scandal chronicles Thorpe's early, secretive love life, at a time when sexual activity between men was illegal, and his subsequent public exposure. The novel also details Thorpe's trial and eventual acquittal.

Family Happiness ☆

FAMILY HAPPINESS - Director of Photography: Lachlan Milne ACS.
A story about bullying, small cruelties and the power of a brother’s unconditional love for his complex little sister. Family Happiness was lensed by the award-winning Lachlan Milne ACS (Not Suitable for Children, Down Under, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) and directed by Alice Englert (The Boyfriend Game) who also features in the film.

Orphans Romilly and Fiona, separately meet their old idol Jay Masbin (Mark Bradshaw) formerly of boy band ‘Boyz Believe’ with whom both have charged, though ultimately upsetting, experiences. They spend the night in each other’s company and perhaps are soothed.

Family Happiness
is quietly quirky and endearing, with both Ben Whishaw and Englert doing a nice job of finding the realism in their respective roles. Milne’s sublimely simple cinematography and delicate handheld work perfectly fits with the narrative, balancing humour and tragedy perfectly.

AGAINST ☆ Talk Back & 私のレビュー

Against | Talkback@Almeida  21.09.2017
d0160581_19305397.jpg
Ian: How do you feel your way, night by night, through the contours of the play? It's a pretty complex journey. Ben you're on stage all the time, you don't get to nip off and have a cup of tea in your room. Even when you're not doing a scene, you're placed upstage. The feat of concentration and feeling your way through it, that must require such effort.


Ben Whishaw:
I just try and clear my mind - I think it's about a man who he believes that if he listens to people, if we truly listen to each other and talk honestly with one another and share and we are able to be intimate in that way; we could actually not be violent people. So that's what I try and do. It's really hard but I think I always just try and be present. That's actually it's my only note to myself. Obviously there’s a lot to do but the thing is to try and listen to what the other person is doing, saying to you.

d0160581_19494895.jpg


Audience Member:
There's a subtlety when Luke meets Kate, Luke is suddenly open to that relationship with Sheila - what is it about the Luke/Kate meeting that kind of unlocks Luke into the last act? How do you feel about that?

Ben: I feel it's a mysterious moment of what I think Christopher Shinn would describe as grace. It is mysterious so it's hard to say much more about it than that. But the gesture that Kate makes to Luke shifts something in him. It's sort of a gift she gives him, without even really knowing it or trying to or anything. Because he's receiving messages, he believes he's receiving messages and that's another message in a way, that moment.

Ian: I think when you say "Thank you for forgiving me," a spell has been released there to actually feel forgiven. It suddenly grounds you and energises you for the end because a lot of people carry shame and guilt. They say shame is the hardest of all the feelings to carry. There might be compensatory things that all of the characters do to manage their shame and their wounds and suddenly, out of nowhere, a kind of blast from the past, a first love releases something with that forgiveness.




Audience Member: We don't know what Luke's vision is, but as an actor and especially for the central character do you have an idea what this vision is?


Ian:
It think really great playwrights like George Bernard Shaw or David Hare would write Luke's vision and it would be given to you and you'd go off, having consumed the message and you would have received the answer. I respect that. But I think Christopher Shinn's dramatic method is to withhold that so that you go away active and thinking, ‘I wonder what it was’ and ‘oh, I wish I had it’ and ‘perhaps if we treated each other better and looked after each other and tried to save the planet, we'd hear a vision like that’.

What's great about the question is Ben knows what the vision is, the playwright's written it all out for him, so he's carrying that into that last sequence and no one else in the company does. So, Jon asks Sheila, "What are we doing? I need to know these plans" as a sort of compensatory way of dealing with oncoming trauma. Chris, the second character that Philippe plays, has a kind of "What is he going to say?" And I think Elliot’s character Melvin is kind of shocked because his investment in this vision - this mission - has been removed from him. And then, a sort of Mary Magdalene or whoever, suddenly you get this surprising communion, don't you with Tracy?

d0160581_20075456.jpg

Ian: How are you feeling about ending because you've got one more week after this. What's that like? How are you feeling because you're shot every night? It's a complex, let’s be honest it's a very complex zone to live in. What's it like for you there?


Ben:
I'll miss it. I really love the play. I like what it is, I like what it raises. I do find it difficult too because it's not a comfortable thing. I imagine it's not a comfortable thing or necessarily an easy thing to watch because it's probably not ‘entertaining’ in the way that people like to be entertained. It's been a beautiful thing.


And Christopher - I had a message from Christopher Shinn earlier on. He wrote this play and nearly died because he had cancer and he lost a leg a few years ago, he didn't think he was going to be here. This is the first play he wrote after he knew he was going to live. That's a very, really every night I feel that kind of... that's the area of the play came out from. That experience. In a way it's almost, because I think it's very hard, we can't live in that space of contemplating that. The end, what it means to not, potentially, not be here and then find you are here. I think he was dealing… figuring all that stuff out. It's very charged, the play. Quite difficult sometimes to be in that - put yourself in that place.


d0160581_20100753.jpg

Ian:
Most of the best art is - I'm talking about songs, novels, plays, films - they're really about one thing. How we process loss. How we deal with mortality and yes, there are lots of great things that are ‘entertaining’ and I love to be entertained. The best work, the deepest art is about us coming together and going through something together, which is challenging, about the big things. I just feel very grateful. You've not only sat through nearly three hours of an engrossing, hopefully, challenging play but you've come and sat with us. We care about it. Thanks for coming to the Almeida. Thanks for seeing a new play.

トークバックは、アルメイダのサイトから抜粋。


*****
最初に:
いつもながら、ベンの作品選びの勇気には感服。もともとこの作品をやるかどうかの段階のとき、リックソン監督と、監督の言を借りれば《作品の周辺をうろうろしていた》という。そして、トランプがアメリカ大統領になった時点で、二人で「よし、やろう!」と決断。

一流の表現者としてのノブリス・オブリージュ:
作品の内容がいかに現代社会とつながり、反映しているか?社会問題とどれだけコミットしているか?
007やパディントンなどのビッグヒットとのつり合いもあってか、常に一人の作家のインディーズ的勇気から始まるこういう作品に積極的に参加するベン・ウィショー☆

カーテン・コールの時の自信に満ちた表情が忘れられない。
そして、
この舞台が千秋楽を迎えた翌日に、ラスベガスの銃乱射事件が起きた。。。


                              ※この部分のみ10月11日に追記


***


二夜、観て参りました。
(正直、一夜目はテレグラフの評のごとく内容が寒くて、幕間のロビーで「退屈だと思ったら、表現がストレートすぎるからね」という声が聞こえ、二幕目で帰る人(しかも私の両隣!)までいて、「どうしよーぉ…?」だったのだが、二夜目はまた印象が違った。もっと観れば何か掴めるかも・・・?と思った)

う~ん、批評が難しい。
トークバックの内容を読んだらなお難しい。

完成形を提示していない。
ベンは事前に脚本家クリス・シンから、(他の役者には告げられていない)主人公のヴィジョンというものを独自に伝えられていた。

主人公のヴィジョンがあいまいだから、芯がない感じがして、掴めなかったが、
それをも、観客に託されていたのだ・・・


ベンも含め、脚本家、演出家は、もしかしたらこれを
”Show” ではなくて(問題提起の)”場” もしくは ”現場” にしたかったのかも…


***

ベンは相変わらず、エネルギー全開で、登場とともに場の空気を変えたが、ベンが叫べば叫ぶほど、苦悩すればするほど、その(相手や観客への)気持ちの届かなさが逆にこちらに跳ね返ってきて、苦しかった。(そして、私は密かに吉野弘の詩の中の、「正しいことを言うときは少し控えめにする方がいい」を思い出していた・・・)


それ(苦しくさせること)さえも、先読みした演技・演出なのだとしたら、観客は相当な理解力と忍耐力を要する。

だから、脚本の意図を考えずに、表面だけを追っていると退屈と感じてしまう・・・

ベンが言うように、「心地よいエンターテインメントではないから」というより、退屈という要素の方が大きかった・・・

「ドキュメンタリーじゃないんだから、脚本として何か(ドラマチックな)《芸》を見せてよ」という気持ち・・・最初は。

私も浅いんだろう・・・多分・・・


d0160581_19513655.jpg

《芸》という意味では、役者が揃っていて、それだけでも楽しめた☆
ケヴィン・ハーヴェイ、アマンダ・ヘイル、ナンシー・クレイン。
この三人には、助演賞をあげたい。

ナオミ・ワーズナ—(スティーブン・ディレインの連れ合いさん)も暖かい声で、安定した演技。他もほとんど粒がそろっていた。

d0160581_19502113.jpg

Bakkhai の時にも感じたけれど、ケヴィン・ハーヴェイがいい!笑いもたくさん取っていた。声が丸くておおらかで通るので舞台に向いている。演じ分けも巧み。

アマンダ・ヘイルも、ケイト役で本領発揮。もちろん、インテリIT女子シーラ役もぴったり。ルークを唯一、真に理解(しようとする)者。(ルークにとって、シーラの存在がなければ、救いがなくてとても観ていられなかった。)


***
脚本のクリス・シンが癌闘病中であることから、当然ベンにはそういうバイアスがかかっていることもくみ取れる。(判官びいきなベンだから・・・)


気に入ったセリフなども書きたかったけれど、
今日はここまで・・・

千秋楽終わりましたね。
Thanks to ベン and other cast and the crew !
お疲れさまでした☆

最後のカーテンコール?

(ベン、最後に何か話したのかな・・・)



うらら

“I love Ben Whishaw. He’s very open, permissive, hard-working, warm… and he has that kind of thrumming majesty in the moment. Both of us were sort of circling around the play, and the day President Trump was elected I said, ‘Look, I’m going to do this play, because it feels important,’ and he said, ‘Yeah, I’m with you,’ so that kind of in-sighted the thing for us two to happen.


He inspires companies, and something I love about him in this play in particularly, he’s not just light, and luminous and open, he’s really kind of virile and conflicted. I think he can do anything. It’s such a privilege to have him in this play.”

World Premiere

AGAINST

By Christopher Shinn

Directed By Ian Rickson

production information

Silicon Valley. The future. A rocket launches.

Luke is an aerospace billionaire who can talk to anyone.
But God is talking to him. He sets out to change the world.
Only violence stands in his way.

Christopher Shinn’s gripping new play, directed by Ian Rickson,
features Ben Whishaw as Luke.


チケット販売 5月
Talkback Thurs 21 Sep


theguardian.com


”August will also see the debut of Pulitzer-nominated playwright
Christopher Shinn’s new work, AGAINST.
Ben Whishaw will play Luke, a tech millionaire convinced he is the
next messiah, whose calling is to confront violence in America.

Shinn’s starting point for the play was asking what would happen if a
Jesus-like figure arrived in contemporary America, and how he would
preach his message. “Luke is this YouTube Jesus figure,” said Goold. “The play is very soulful, and again, in the current American climate,
will be quite timely. We associate faith in America with the Republicans and the right, but this looks at faith as a more egalitarian, almost
socialist, principle.”

The Times ☆ Interview

From Paddington Bear to Mary Poppins — but don’t call Ben Whishaw cute

The actor is returning to theatre as a Silicon Valley mogul, then Brutus in Julius Caesar. He talks about his battle with performance anxiety and having a nasty side

d0160581_08594868.jpg

Ben Whishaw: “I’m not very nice sometimes”
JODY ROGAC/EYEVINE


We are in a pokey costumier’s workshop somewhere in the bowels of the Almeida theatre in Islington in north London. It’s not much more than a broom cupboard really, and Ben Whishaw sits on a stool amid the clothes and faceless Styrofoam wig-stands sipping a cup of tea. He seems happy.


All actors — particularly once they become successful — like to go on about how much they just love doing theatre. With Whishaw this is genuinely, honestly true. Ever since he arrived, fully formed, as Trevor Nunn’s Hamlet aged only 23, he has continued to return to the stage even as his screen career has blossomed. It’s almost impossible for him to do TV without being at least nominated for some award — Criminal Justice, The Hour, London Spy — and his film roles are as varied as they are acclaimed: John Keats in Bright Star, Keith Richards in Stoned and supporting turns in Suffragette and The Danish Girl. There are also his regular gigs as Q to Daniel Craig’s James Bond and, of course, the voice of Paddington Bear. Yet for all that here he is, backstage and back in rehearsals, drifting contentedly through the organised chaos of theatre company life.


“I love that about doing plays,”
he says softly. “I love being part of a group of people, part of a troupe. It suits me. There’s no etiquette. It’s a profession that is really accepting of everyone’s oddities.” He smiles. “All sorts of people are actors.”


What sort of person is Whishaw? This has not always been an easy question to answer. Over the years a composite image has emerged of a fierce talent who is nevertheless guarded, opaque and fragile. His appearance (skinny, elfin) and manner (gentle, modest) add to this perception. Only, he explains, we’ve got the wrong idea. “Sometimes I get really annoyed because people think I’m going to be cute. And nice. And I’m not very nice sometimes. And I’m not very cute really,” he says, frowning in a way that, to be honest, is quite cute. “There’s this notion that I might be sensitive and shy. Which is partly true. But I can be grumpy and angry and irritable.”


He chuckles and drinks his tea. Still, it’s only fair to point out that these preconceptions about Whishaw are not totally unfounded. Now 36 years old, he says that during his twenties he struggled badly with performance anxiety. “I suffered a lot of awful, terrible nerves and stomach pains,” he says. “Really debilitating things. You realise that other people are dependent on you doing well. Money. All sorts of things become part of the equation. I remember not sleeping because I was so stressed.”


For a very long time he was by his own admission anxious about submitting himself to scrutiny. We knew he grew up in Hertfordshire, went to Rada and has a non-identical twin brother who doesn’t act? Beyond that? Not loads. Talking about himself is still not his favourite thing in the world. “I find interviews quite nerve- racking,” he says apologetically, but explains that he’s trying harder to not get stressed about them or to second- guess what people might make of him. He stops and regards me with what looks a lot like sympathy. “I understand,” he says. “It’s the pressure of your job to capture an essence of somebody, which I suppose is very difficult.”


He thinks he used to use his reputation for shyness as a defence mechanism. “Maybe you can end up playing a role or something?” he says. “Behaving in a certain way because you think people are going to expect that of you. And it becomes a place that’s quite comfortable because you’ve been there before. So you just trot it out again.”


One big change — perhaps the big change — came in the wake of Whishaw coming out as gay in 2011. “I definitely feel like I’m more relaxed as a person,” he says. “I don’t know if that makes you a better actor or more available or anything, but it’s certainly lovely not to have to be worrying about keeping something private. That’s a really, really good feeling. It makes me realise that I spent a long time — too long, really — in a private agony about something. About it.”


So that’s good. He’s also “become really obsessed with this amazing Buddhist nun who teaches meditation practice that is all about acceptance of whatever comes up. About being OK with things being uncomfortable.” This has also helped him to become more sanguine. “You see yourself. Your own mad thoughts, your repetitive thoughts and your own blind spots. It’s very easy to think that everyone else is nuts and you’re sane, but you’re really not,” he says cheerfully.


Madness, as it happens, permeates the play he is about to appear in. Against, by Christopher Shinn, is about a Silicon Valley tech magnate called Luke who believes he is in communication with God, who has given him the task of ending all violence on Earth. It’s a powerful work — occasionally frightening and certainly not the satire it could be — with this well-meaning but eerily detached protagonist at its centre.


“He is vaguely modelled on someone like Elon Musk or Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos, and he’s involved in AI and rockets and thinking about the future. But before the play begins he has had this revelation and God has spoken to him and issued an instruction to him to ‘go where there is violence’. So we meet someone at the beginning of the play who is a changed man.”


Whishaw says that, to prepare for the role of Luke, he spent a lot of time on YouTube. “I did begin by watching a lot of TED Talks, people being interviewed, Elon Musk showing people around his factory. And actually, in that sense, it feels very much a play of the moment because there are so many of these people talking about mankind with a messianic, visionary zeal. But the biggest challenge is trying to understand what it feels like to really, truly believe you have been spoken to by God. That’s the thing. That’s the centre of it.”


Whishaw admits what most actors don’t: that he’s competitive when it comes to his career and getting the roles he wants. “I’m definitely competitive, yeah. And I definitely want things for myself. Yeah. Definitely. And I think that’s good.” Has he ever gone up for parts and missed out on them, and felt angry about it? Pissed off? “There are one or two things,” he says a little airily, smiling to himself. “One or two things where I’ve thought . . . I could have done that. I should have done that.”


For a long time he was down to play Freddie Mercury in a forthcoming biopic. The Queen guitarist, Brian May, had said that he hoped Whishaw would get the role, because “he’s fabulous, a real actor”, but that’s fallen through, Whishaw says. He was up for it, but he says there’s no hard feelings. “I don’t really understand what happened myself, but just one day I wasn’t doing it. And somebody else was. And it’s fine. It was just one of those funny things that happen sometimes in the way that films get made.”


Whishaw will be back in the theatre in the new year when he plays Brutus in Julius Caesar, one of the eagerly awaited productions in the first season of Nicholas Hytner’s new London start-up venue, the Bridge Theatre. He has also just finished filming Mary Poppins Returns, a sequel to the classic 1964 musical in which he plays a grown-up Michael Banks. The film is released at the end of next year. “I sing in it,” he says, but then backpedals slightly. “Well, it’s more like talking-singing. It’s Emily Blunt playing Mary Poppins and my sister, Jane, is played by Emily Mortimer. It was wonderful fun.” In fact, he says that doing these big Hollywood numbers are invariably a laugh. “I don’t think a job is more noble or valuable for not being fun. Although I think I used to.”


Playing Michael Banks was a particular pleasure given that Mary Poppins was the first film he saw. “My dad taped it off the telly. I watched it in the way that my niece and nephew watch Frozen. Over and over and over again.”


In 2012 Whishaw entered into a civil partnership with the Australian composer Mark Bradshaw. They met during the filming of Bright Star and live together in east London. “We’re quite weird. Music relaxes me, but it doesn’t relax Mark because it’s Mark’s thing,” he says, meaning that the last thing Bradshaw wants at the end of a long day of listening to music is to listen to more music. “So we always have a tussle about when I can play my music. He’ll hate me for saying that.”

Bradshaw produced the score for the latest season of Top of the Lake, the crime drama featuring Elisabeth Moss. Whishaw says that he recently gorged on it. “I just watched the whole thing in one day and what Elisabeth Moss did in it was really inspiring to me. I thought: ‘F***! That’s reminded me why this job is such a great thing to do.’ ” Was the music any good? He nods with faux-solemnity. “The music was good as well.”


Someone knocks on the door to say it’s time to go back to rehearsals. Whishaw seems slightly relieved, but he’s trying his best. “In the past I might have been very defensive about a whole load of things. And I’m telling myself not to be that,” he says. He’s still shy and sensitive and all the rest of it, but nothing like he used to be.“I’m probably a little bit more confident in myself. A bit more relaxed in myself. More relaxed in my own body.” He is, despite his protestations, every bit as cute and as nice as we imagine. He’s also a brilliant actor. All said, there are worse things to be.

"The Man on the Platform" - excerpts


All I want to do is wave. But, of course, what can I say?

Um… “So long, Captain Leslie?” - “So long, Perce.” But then he does see me.
He glances over, but he’s still talking to his pal and just then the train lurches forward.
The brakes go on and the blue lights go out and just like that, pitch-black.

And all the other fellas in the carriage start groaning and someone says,
“Oh, here we fucking go,”
but all I can feel is my heart beating and the air.
And the darkness pressing against the window
and my hand gripping the window ledge.

And then someone takes my hand.
Someone outside on the platform. And it’s Terence.
And he takes my hand and he just… lifts it to his lips and he kisses it.

There’s no train then, there’s no troops, there’s no war.
There’s just his bramble lips pressed against the tips of my fingers…
and all the hair on my neck goes up on end.

And then the train lurches forward and he’s let go of my hand and all the blue lights go on,
and… Outside there’s nothing but steam. Steam and darkness.

Queers

ONE VOICE: MONOLOGUES FUNDED BY THE TS ELIOT ESTATE

Queers
marks and celebrates some of the most poignant, funny, tragic and riotous moments of British gay male history over the last century. 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act of 1967 decriminalised private homosexual acts between men aged over 21, this series of eight monologues will be staged across two evenings at The Old Vic.


Queers is curated by Mark Gatiss and produced in partnership with the BBC, with short film versions of the monologues to be screened on BBC Four later this summer. The writers are Matthew Baldwin, Jon Bradfield, Jackie Clune, Michael Dennis, Brian Fillis, Mark Gatiss, Gareth McLean and Keith Jarrett. The monologues will be directed by Mark Gatiss and Old Vic Associate Directors Joe Murphy and Max Webster.

Casting to be announced. For any updates, sign up to our mailing list here.


Queers is part of One Voice, a series of monologues specially commissioned by The Old Vic and funded by the TS Eliot Estate, with one-off performances from renowned actors. One Voice celebrates the most raw of theatre forms – a single voice on a stage without scenery, without costume and with nothing to rely on
but words.

A stellar cast is to appear in BBC Four’s Queers. Ben Whishaw, Alan Cumming, Rebecca Front, Russell Tovey, Gemma Whelan, Ian Gelder, Kadiff Kirwan and Fionn Whitehead will star in eight 15 minute monologues.


In The Man On The Platform, Ben Whishaw returns from the trenches of the First World War, whilst a hundred years later, Alan Cumming reflects on gay marriage in Something Borrowed.



Queers is being produced in partnership with The Old Vic Theatre who will stage all eight of the monologues in July, in the run up to the television transmission. Tickets for the live staging are on sale now, with casting to be announced.

d0160581_1847448.png ISSUE 4 PREVIEW: BEN WHISHAW
d0160581_1849938.jpg



What characters do you find the most fulfilling?

I think every role is interesting because you’re basically trying to understand another person, you’re trying to get inside them and see the world through their eyes - it’s fascinating. I love beautiful writing. It’s wonderful when you receive a script that’s beautifully written, and you think, “Oh my goodness! I could never have thought of that!” You’re fascinated by someone’s perspective - you would never have thought of that or would never have said that. It’s great to be challenged in that way. I’d like to do many different things. It’s sometimes hard to persuade people to look at you in another way because actors can do anything really, but the world likes to categorise you and put you into a box.


What is your big ambition?

I suppose my biggest ambition for myself is to work in the way that I dream of, to work in a company of actors long-term. Either in theatre or film or some collective where we know each other and we’re driven purely by artistic desires, rather than commercial ones. I’d love to be more proactive in bringing people together and doing things with people I respect. I’ve been going to see the Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal at Sadler’s Wells. They’re here for a whole season of performances, and it’s been so amazing to see a company that has worked together for years and years – some of them for 30, 40 years. The quality of the work is so different. You can’t describe it – it’s special.



d0160581_1850164.jpg



Do you think everything is too driven by money and commerciality?

I think it is a bit. I feel that sometimes in this country, compared with other European countries, the way we treat the arts is very... Maybe it’s a hangover from Thatcher, or maybe it’s because we’re enthralled to America, I don’t know, but I feel that in Germany, whenever I’ve been there, they have a respect for art. They don’t have to smirk about it or sneer. They say it really simply and with love. They appreciate great art, whereas we have to play it down - “you mustn’t get above yourself”. And I think that’s a shame. I think we are a little bit confused about those things. I mean some things can be great art and great entertainment and be commercially successful. They’re not mutually exclusive things, and sometimes that happens. But when [commercial success] happens at the exclusion of all things...it’s a shame.


d0160581_18492162.jpg




Who is your IDOL?

It’s quite a long list... So many things influence me. One of my favourite actors of all time is Gena Rowlands. She was married to a director called John Cassavetes who was sort of the first independent film-maker. If you haven’t seen any of her films with Cassavetes, you must! She’s completely tremendous, and she’s not really recognised - she’s a bit undiscovered. Music really inspires me too. I’m completely obsessed with a singer-song- writer called Sandy Denny. She died in the late 70s. I’ve been listening to her a lot recently. She had the most incredible voice.

Fairport Convention ~ Autopsy

One of the most beautiful songs ever made. From the album Unhalfbricking (1969). (Music of UMG)

You must philosophise
But why must you bore me to tears?
You're red around the eyes
You tell me things no one else hears
You spend all your time crying
Crying the hours in tears
Crying the hours into years

Come lend your time to me
And you will know that you are free
And when you look at me
Don't think you're owning what you see
For remember that you're free
And that's what you want to be
So just lend your time to me

You must philosophise
But why must you bore me to tears?
You're red around the eyes
You tell me things no one else hears
You spend all your time crying
Crying the hours in tears
Crying the hours in to ears

(Sandy Denny)

1:29 くらいからベンのことを話しています。
「Fantastic to work with Ben Whishaw. Great honor. He's a great actor. 
このプロジェクトをやってくれることになってとても光栄です。彼にやって欲しかった理由は、彼が魂をオープンにすることをいとわない役者だと判っていたからです。そして彼自身、それがリスクを負うことになることも知っていたからです。役者二人ともリスクは大きかった。自分をさらけ出すわけですから」

ポール・キング監督
6:34 くらいからベンを声に起用した効果を話しています ♪




かなり製作が進んでからの(声の)主役交代だったので、ストレスだったのではないでしょうか?

そうですね。
動画が出来てくるに連れ、違う声に代える必要が出て来ました。
でも今は、結果的に代えて間違いなかったと言えます。

本編の演技の中でも、僕はベンの声の演技がとてもよかったです。とっても誠実で、とっても無垢でした。彼がやることになってからも、製作過程はとてもスリリングだったのでは?

ええ、スリリングでした。そしてかなりの道のりでした。ベンは単に声だけでなく、画面作りに必要なたくさんの要素を提供してくれました。もし、彼の声が熊の唇と合わない場合、我々は、彼の演技から全てを1から作り上げなければなりませんでした。

これが一番の大仕事でした。願わくば、熊のスピリットがベンの演技から生まれてくれれば、と思っていました。

”Result was splendid” 結果は言う事なし!でした。

今や ベンの声がなければ、パディントンという映画は考えられません。
