Romola is married!

Congratulations are in order – according to The Telegraph, Romola and her long-time partner Sam have tied the knot!

Hoare, who is best known for the BBC comedy series Blandings, confirms to Mandrake that Romola is now his wife. What is more, he is about to traverse the Atlantic for her. “I’m moving to New York because my wife is doing a play off-Broadway,” says the actor at a preview screening of Gentleman’s Wager hosted by Johnnie Walker Blue Label in Knightsbridge. “I’m going to be doing a bit of acting, too, but mostly changing nappies in Brooklyn. We just found an apartment for four months, so we’ll be back in December.”

I could not find any other information on the play Romola will be doing in New York, but I hope more information surface soon!

New movie: “Dominion”

After wrapping filming on Suffragette, Romola is now working on an exciting new project: She is currently filming a movie called Dominion which is an indie drama about Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas. Romola will portray his wife.
The movie – which is based on the last day of Thomas’ short life at the White Horse Tavern in New York -, is being shot in black and white by Steven Bernstein (cinematographer on Monster, Like Water for Chocolate) from his own script.
The film also stars Rodrigo Santoro, John Malkovich and Rhys Ifans and is being produced by Richard Gladstein, who noted, “It’s not a biopic at all, but rather a testament to the man and his legacy.” (Thomas died at the age of 39 of pneumonia but was a voracious drinker.)
The title of the film is obviously drawn from one of his most famous poems, And Death Shall Have No Dominion. (Source)

“Suffragette” on set pictures added

I have now added some pictures from the set of Romola’s latest project, Suffragette (whose release date has now been set to Jan 16, 2015 – at least for the UK). Click here to see them, they were all taken during the filming on April 11.

The foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.

“The Mistress Contract” – Press Night pictures

Sorry for seeing this so late, but Romola attended the press night performance of ‘The Mistress Contract’ at the Royal Court Theatre on February 5, 2014 in London!

Abi Morgan’s new play The Mistress Contract is based on the memoirs of an American couple who have been having an affair for more than thirty years. It is full of sexual politics and serious musings. Luckily, the afterparty was a little lighter and, following the performance at the Royal Court, everyone trotted to the bar. Romola Garai nattered with Rachel Johnson, while Vicky Featherstone and Abi toasted the culmination of months of toil over Quintessentially Vodka Rhubarb Rickey cocktails. (Source)

So far I was only able to find two pictures but if I stumble upon any more I will add them! Click here to see them!

Romola joins “Suffragette”

I have some fantastic news to report today! Romola has joined the historical drama “Suffragette” (her character’s name is Alice). Romola’s The Hour co-star Ben Wishaw, Carey Mulligan, Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham Carter, Brendon Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff and Samuel West are also part of the cast.

Shoot gets underway in the UK on Monday (Feb 24) on the film produced by Faye Ward and Alison Owen of Ruby Films. Backers are Pathe, Film4 and the BFI.

Oscar-nominated Mulligan stars as Maude, a “foot soldier of the early feminist movement” who becomes radicalized and turns to violence as a route to change.

Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) directs Abi Morgan’s script, executive producers are Pathe’s Cameron McCracken and Film4’s Tessa Ross and Katherine Butler, while Chris Collins is lead exec for the BFI Film Fund. (Source)

Romola Garai ditches her mobile in Morocco

Romola has published a new self-written article in the online version of The Guardian – in it, she talks about a recent trip to Marrakech (and there also are a couple of new pictures).

[....] That night, I lay in the vast 20,000-cotton-thread-count bedsheets and thought of the places I have stayed over the years, and immediately calculated that El Fenn was most definitely the nicest. While it’s true that the only thing in my life that causes me sleepless nights and headaches came with us (slightly defeating the point of getting away from it all), even she couldn’t withstand the invincible pressure to relax and slept the most peaceful nights of her life there. As we checked out the following morning, making promises to return, I noticed Baby eyeballing the tortoises as though she were saying, “You hear that? I’m coming back. And I’ll be bigger next time.”
