THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Coincidentally, Cinderella star Lily James celebrated International Women’s Day by relishing in the courage and agency of her refreshed Disney princess.

“This Cinderella is a really powerful, strong character — I wanted to bring a strength of spirit to the role,” James, wearing a Dolce and Gabbana outfit with Stuart Weitzman heels, told The Hollywood Reporter before a Sunday afternoon screening at New York City’s Tribeca Grand Hotel.

Madden added of Kenneth Branagh’s modern take, “This young woman in distress doesn’t need a man to save her. That’s totally irrelevant — she’d be fine without the prince, she’d get on with it.” Plus, his spin on Prince Charming includes a “sense of humor — the ability to make fun of himself and have a bit of banter with his dad.”

James was overjoyed about the recent announcement of Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, starring fellow Downton Abbey breakout Dan Stevens opposite Emma Watson. “I’m so excited he’s playing the beast! I couldn’t believe it, I texted him immediately,” she said. Madden’s advice for playing such a beloved character? “Practice your dancing, because you’re gonna have to do it at some point!”

Disney has Beauty and the Beast (also featuring Luke Evans) following Cinderella and Maleficent in starring British actors (or at least accents, in Maleficent’s case). When asked about what it is about the U.K. that seems to make these live-action retellings inherently magical, James told THR, “I don’t know! It’s weird! [On set,] there was a sense of theater of company, of epic storytelling in an intimate nature. I don’t know whether British actors are more theater?”

Richard Madden guessed it might have to do with the European roots of the stories themselves. “Maybe it’s just because it goes back further — fairytales are just bred in us. Or maybe it’s just coincidence! I don’t think it’s deliberate.”

The stars’ close friend Matthew Goode, who brought his daughter to the screening, had a hypothesis on the topic. “Good on the Brits, yes! It’s because of the wild, imaginative people that the Brits are,” he joked THR while grabbing more popcorn for his family. “I think it’s merely because we’re cheap — that can be the only reason, because there’s so many good American actors!”

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.’”
