I found a YouTube clip of you in your first movie, Complicity—it is heavy subject matter!
I’ve not seen that in years. That was my first role—I was 11. I play a boy who gets raped. My mother has a great picture of me lying on the ground in between takes with this massive man on top of me. That was a kind of baptism by fire into the world of pretending.

So, the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones. Did it leave the set completely covered in fake blood?
It was carnage. I was also wearing this tunic with a hose that came up from my ankle to my chest and when I got stabbed, the blood was supposed to burst out of me. But during the first take the hole was misaligned so I got a few liters of blood inside my costume. And that stuff dyes your skin!

Was it a grueling scene to act?
It took five days and every one was torturous. The last day of shooting was also the last shoot of season 3, so literally at the end of that day I was finished with Game of Thrones. At that point I’d been with the same crew for five years. I saw my onscreen mother more than my actual mother. It was really emotional.

What were things like behind the scenes?
Most of the time we were filming in really miserable, cold locations, and the subject matter is not particularly upbeat. There were funny moments, though. You’ve got a bunch of men all trying to be very manly and tough and then, as soon as they’d shout cut, everyone would drop to the ground and lie down because the costumes were so heavy. A lot of jokes also ended up being directed toward Kit [Harrington], after he broke his ankle, drunk one night. So you had Jon Snow in a massive leg cast. We’d be in these woods that were muddy and a mess and two people would have to carry Kit onto set and prop him up on one leg beside me. We’d go through a scene. Then, cut, and he’d have to get carried off again to the next set.

There’s a lot of pretty elaborate dancing.
Oh, god. We had three proper dance sequences within that ball scene. I was dancing three days a week just rehearsing and rehearsing, so that when we got to shooting the scene I wouldn’t have that look of fear on my face.

Cinderella’s dress is so big!
It is humungous. You have no idea. During rehearsals we went through quite a few copy dresses. I spilled coffee on one. And poor Lily. I couldn’t complain about having to trip over it, because she was the one having to carry it.

There’s also that scene where she’s on a swing and you reach in and grab her foot. Was it hard to find it under all that dress?
I think we made it look elegant on the day, but in reality there were like 80 layers to get through. I was terrified the swing was going to come forward and I would be engulfed by a dress and suffocated beneath it.

Posted by Nicole on Feb 13, 2015 Possible New Project, Richard 0 Comments

According to the Daily Mail, Cinderella stars Lily James and Richard Madden have been signed up by Kenneth Branagh to play star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet in the West End next year.

The production will play at the Garrick Theatre in the Spring of 2016 and reunites the pair who worked with Branagh on the new live-action Disney blockbuster, Cinderella.

The production will be launched at the Garrick in October and forms part of a season of three productions in the West End helmed by Branagh. The season will also include a production of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, which Branagh will direct before taking to the stage himself in a revival of John Osborne’s post-war drama The Entertainer, directed by Rob Ashford.

After playing the King in the North in “Game of Thrones,” Richard Madden is now ready to go on the run with Idris Elba in his next project.

Madden is set to co-star with Elba in the Focus Features action-thriller “Bastille Day.” James Watkins will direct from a script by Andrew Baldwin.

StudioCanal is financing “Bastille Day” and will distribute it in France, Germany, the U.K., New Zealand and Australia, and is selling the rest of the world.

Philippe Rousselet is producing the project via his Vendome Pictures banner, along with Steve Golin, David Kanter and Bard Dorros for Anonymous Content.

Developed by Anonymous Content, the movie follows a rogue U.S. CIA operative who is tasked with interrogating and eventually making a young American man, who’s also a con-artist, “disappear” in order to avoid embarrassment to the U.S. government after the American is linked as the prime suspect to an attack on the Paris metro.

After several more attacks, the operative realizes the young American is innocent and may be the only link to the person actually orchestrating the terrorist attacks.

BBC One has announced the cast for its upcoming adaptation of “Lady Chatterley’s Lover,” the 1928 Italian romance novel by D.H. Lawrence.

Holliday Grainger, who starred in Showtime’s “The Borgias” and A&E’s recent miniseries “Bonnie & Clyde,” will play the title role, with “Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden playing gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. James Norton, who appears in BBC One’s “Happy Valley,” will play Lady Chatterley’s war-wounded husband Sir Clifford Chatterley.

The novel was considered highly controversial at the time of its publication due to its explicit sexual content, and a trial was held in Britain in 1960 to determine if the book fell under the country’s Obscene Publications Act. It appears in an episode of “Mad Men” as well, with Joan Holloway’s possession of the book causing a stir in the office due to its erotic content.

The 90-minute drama will be written and directed by Jed Mercurio and produced by Hartswood Films in association with Serena Cullen Productions. (source)
