Press/Gallery: Richard Madden Covers Wonderland Magazine

 

WONDERLAND: Richard Madden is sitting barefoot and cross-legged on an inviting velvet armchair. Outside, it’s the hottest day of the year but inside the air conditioning is so prevalent it’s positively chilly. As a proud Scot, Madden is no stranger to the cold and has neatly wrapped himself up in a rather comfy-looking athleisure-type ensemble, albeit sans shoes.

We are on the set of his Wonderland cover shoot and as everyone breaks for lunch, we find an opportune time to catch up and chat with the Bodyguard star and global ambassador of Calvin Klein’s latest fragrance, DEFY, about the year that’s been for arguably one of the entertainment industry’s most hard-working talents.

“If I’m not doing stuff, I always feel like I should be,” says Madden as he twiddles his thumbs, his eyes wide and alive. Like everyone, the 35-year-old was not accustomed to what the past 18 months would have in store. “I’d just finished shooting Eternals when lockdown happened so it was like, oh OK, I’m forced to not do anything,” recalls Madden. “I really needed that because I’m so used to surviving but here I didn’t feel guilty about not doing something because no one was doing anything.”

With a cast that comprises Angelina Jolie, Kit Harington, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani alongside Madden who plays Ikaris, it’s no surprise that Eternals is the most anticipated film of the year and as a big fan of comics himself, Madden too is beyond excited for it to be out.

“They’re all very complicated people in Eternals, but hopefully that can also help us bring a lightness to some heavy subject matter in terms of the story because I think when you live that long you’ve got to have a bit of a smile to yourself. You’ve got to laugh at life.”

Indeed, laughing is something Madden hopes to do more of in the future, both personally and professionally. Given the majority of Madden’s roles have been on the serious side, we talk to him about finding his happy place, about how he comes to terms with feeling self-conscious in front of the camera as well as what he has planned for Christmas this year.

Press: Meet the Eternals: A guide to Marvel’s 10 newest heroes

Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, and more break down their immortal characters.

 

Ikaris (Richard Madden)

Madden’s Ikaris is one of the most powerful Eternals, with the ability to fly and shoot beams of light from his eyes. He has a special connection with Sersi, but they don’t necessarily see eye to eye on their approach toward humanity. Still, they have a complicated, on-again off-again relationship that’s stretched throughout the centuries. “There’s a deep level of romance in two people that have been around for thousands of years and yet still choose each other,” Madden says.

For the Game of Thrones alum, one of the biggest challenges of playing an immortal superhuman was figuring out how he’s evolved over the last 7,000 years. “I had to work out, how do you play someone who’s seen everything and done everything?” Madden explains. “How do you play them to not be bored of everything because you’re seen it and done it?”

Press: ‘Eternals is more than just another superhero movie’

Richard Madden has powered through lockdown with a raft of new film, TV and podcasting projects, with a lead role in Chloé Zhao’s Marvel movie, Eternals, front and centre. It’s a superhero film like nothing you’ve seen before, says Madden…

 

BRITISH GQ: Richard Madden isn’t in the habit of sitting around doing nothing. Earlier this year, Madden found himself quarantining in an LA hotel room ahead of reshoots for his upcoming Marvel vehicle Eternals. Naturally, it was boring. Some actors would have sat around living off room service for ten days and bingeing TV; others might have ignored the quarantine rules entirely only to find themselves shamed on the front pages of gossip sites and industry magazines. But not Madden. “I kind of have a guilt if I’ve got time to be doing something and I’m not,” explains Madden.

Rather than sitting around doing nothing, he had recording equipment sent to his room and began putting in eight-hour shifts recording a sci-fi podcast series called From Now, playing the only survivor of a lost space mission that returns, unexpectedly, to earth 35 years after it left. His fellow Scot Brian Cox, recently of Succession fame but also an eminent actor in his own right, voiced Madden’s brother in the series; Cox laid down his parts from New York and the two occasionally worked together over FaceTime. “Sometimes we had to stop because the cleaners were vacuuming in the hall,” Madden recalls, “and there’s no vacuuming in space.”

Press/Gallery/Video: Calvin Klein Defy

I bet you guys remember the photos of Richard filming a Calvin Klein ad in 2019. Well, its finally time to see the final product! Personally, I am thrilled that Richard is getting more press. He deserves it.

Former GQ cover star Richard Madden has been announced as the new face of Calvin Klein fragrances, a position that will render him even more airtime on our TV screens

 

GQ: A few months ago it was revealed that Game Of Thrones alum Richard Madden would be joining Marvel’s ever-expanding universe. Starring alongside Angelina Jolie, he is set play the role of Ikaris in the hotly anticipated Eternals. Not content with only taking the MCU by storm, the soon-to-be superhero has just added another string to his bow by way of his first ever fragrance campaign.

Calvin Klein has tapped Madden for the launch of its new scent, Defy. The first images from the campaign see the Bodyguard actor dressed in the all-American brand’s signature denim shirt and blue jeans, doused (we assume) in the new fragrance. Meanwhile, the film, which sees Madden move around as if on set of his upcoming Marvel flick, will be blasted into homes around the world.

Defy is Calvin Klein’s first major masculine scent in almost ten years, 2012’s Encounter being the last. Sure to be an instant hit, as most CK fragrances tend to be (we’re looking at you, The One, Obsession, In2U), the CK-branded flacon contains an invigorating citrus juice that is bolstered by fresh and spicy bergamot and empowering lavender absolute. Vetiver oil, which has been responsibly sourced from Haiti, provides a rugged earthiness you’d expect Madden to smell like.

On the partnership, Madden, who joins Jake Gyllenhaal and Kate Moss as CK-approved campaign stars, told GQ exclusively: “I’ve always been a fan of Calvin Klein and having the opportunity to partner with the brand on the launch of their new fragrance, Calvin Klein Defy, has been an exciting adventure.”
