Richard for Zap2IT

ZAP2IT – Former “Game of Thrones” star and current “Cinderella” Prince Charming Richard Madden is desperate to work on a science fiction project, but don’t expect him to mix his personal life and professional one any time soon. Though he’s been dating “Doctor Who” lead Jenna Coleman for several years, Madden says he doesn’t want to make an appearance on the BBC series — at least for the time being.

“That would probably be weird,” Madden admits to Zap2it while promoting “Cinderella.” “I’d love to be in ‘Doctor Who’ one day, but maybe not while Jenna’s in the show.”

Madden already has tackled fantasy thanks to “Thrones,” played a Disney prince in “Cinderella” and is heading to the stage in 2016. He’s also starring in the 2016 modern day action flick “Bastille Day” opposite Idris Elba, which means he’s already showcased a range of his talents.

When asked what he’d like to dabble in next, Madden admits he wants “to keep working and doing things I’ve not done before” — and that’s where his love for sci-fi comes into play. He says his dream science fiction project would be “future sci-fi stuff, like laser ships, space guns,” and his current sci-fi obsession is Halle Berry’s CBS series “Extant.”

Though “Doctor Who” certainly falls under the “future sci-fi stuff” category, Madden confirms “there’s nothing in the pipeline for that at the moment.” “Maybe one day,” he concedes.

truth and fairy tales.
When Richard Madden screen tested for the role of Prince Charming in Disney’s live action retelling of Cinderella, panic was his overriding emotion. Not because he was about to give life to every little girl’s dream guy, or because he was auditioning in front of stage-and-screen royalty, director Kenneth Branagh. Instead, it was his pants. “I was like, Okay, alright, this is what we’re doing? Skintight white pants?” says Madden, laughing at the memory. “You’re thinking, I don’t know how I’m going to live this down. What do I look like on camera? How tight are these pants?”

Extremely tight, it turns out. Madden, who booked the part of Prince Charming, soon found himself at London’s Pinewood studios, riding alabaster horses and wooing Cinderella herself, played by newcomer Lily James, with an irresistible combination of regal self-confidence, puppy-dog sweetness, and a pair of cerulean eyes.

Today, in the buzzing Tribeca eatery Benvenuto Cafe, right next door to his hotel, the 28-year-old London-based actor isn’t dressed like a pristine prince. Speaking past a careful amount of stubble, and wearing a fitted navy peacoat, tight black jeans, and scuffed-up white Chucks, he looks like your average downtown New Yorker, with just two major differences: Madden, a native of Elderslie, the mile-wide village outside of Glasgow, Scotland, speaks in a textured brogue. Also, a small congregation of men with cameras are waiting for him to finish his grilled chicken sandwich and head outside. He’s a long way—seven kingdoms in fact—from Winterfell, where Madden held court for three seasons as Robb Stark, King of the North, on HBO’s fantasy saga, Game of Thrones.

Madden’s blossoming fame—something he’s still adjusting to—is what happens when the show you booked at 22 years old becomes a global phenomenon, and you just happen to be playing an incorruptible good guy in a world where moral ambiguity reigns supreme. “Being in other countries was when I realized Games of Thrones was so big, because in my head I just shot a little TV show in Ireland,” Madden says. “You’re walking around in Paris or Rome and strangers want to take a selfie with you, and you’re like, ‘Oh shit, this is kind of big.’”

Richard Madden opens up about just how Cinderella and her Prince Charming get together, and how they rely on each other to free them from the restrictions in their lives in the forthcoming adaptation by director Kenneth Branagh and screenwriter Chris Weitz.

It’s nice to see modern big screen fairytale re-tellings looking at relationships in a much more equal way. Rather than princesses of late being swept of their feet by proverbial knights in shining armour, they’re coming together while fighting for justice in their own lives. You had ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, which saw a clear romance forming between the two title characters as they worked together to lead an army, and then there is, of course, ‘Frozen’ which saw bravery on the part of both Anna and her faithful quest companion Kristoff. Now ‘Cinderella’ brings together two souls, who must help each other escape the prison of their families.

‘I think [Prince Charming] goes through a huge change from the start’, Richard Madden says of his character. ‘From when he meets her and with what happens with his father during the film and how he learns to be his own man and to stand up against things he doesn’t agree with.’ It certainly seems that the Prince is less authoritative than his status allows him, with him struggling to overcome the King’s demands of his love life. Meanwhile, Cinderella (played by ‘Downton Abbey”s Lily James) is being forced to scrub her own home from top to bottom by her evil stepmother Lady Tremaine (Cate Blanchett) and her hideous daughters (in case you didn’t already know the story).

‘You take these two characters and you take the best qualities that are within them and over the course of the film you see these qualities be pushed and tested’, Madden continues. ‘The connection they have with each other, even though they’re far apart, brings those best qualities out.’ (source)
