“One Day” (2011) DVD Making Of captures added

When I rewatched my German One Day DVD last night, I noticed that Romola is very briefly featured in the Making Of of the movie – needless to say, I went ahead and made captures for you! Click here to see them! She looked beautiful in her role as Sylvie!

“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.”

Romola Garai: “There’s absolutely no chance The Hour one-off special is going to happen”

The actress refutes rumours of a standalone episode, saying it’s highly unlikely the BBC will reverse the decision to axe the period drama which also starred Ben Whishaw and Dominic West

It’s a(nother) sad day for fans of The Hour. Its star Romola Garai has quashed rumours of a one-off special to tie up any loose ends after BBC2 took the unexpected decision to axe the 1950s-set drama back in February. Viewers had been encouraged by comments from both Garai and Peter Capaldi on the Bafta red carpet earlier this year suggesting that the newsroom serial could return for a 1960s-based standalone episode catching up with the characters.

But speaking to RadioTimes.com, Garai said, “I think there’s absolutely no chance that it’s going to happen. I mean, of course I would do it again but I just feel bad because there was all this press coming out saying maybe there’s going to be a one-off special. I don’t think they’re going to do that because it was quite a public axing and I think for the BBC to make a decision like that and then go back on it, I don’t think that would happen.” (Source)
