Richard Madden receives the Giffoni Experience Award: “Working in Italy has been one of the best experiences of my career”

GIFFONI FILM FESTIVAL The day of Richard Madden at the Giffoni Film Festival ends with the tears of the Scottish actor who, from the stage of the Sala Truffaut, received the Giffoni Experience Award and said goodbye – rigorously in Italian – to the jurors: “I’m sure that, in the future, I will work with someone who is here in this hall”. Immediately after the customary selfie, the 36-year-old interpreter did not leave the Cittadella del cinema, as his colleagues often do, but put down the award in the car, and returned on the blue carpet continuing to say goodbye to the audience between photographs and autograph.

Shortly before, he explained to the giffoners the reasons of his affection towards Italy: “Working here has been one of the best experiences of my career. And I don’t say it just because food is good, or rather, too good, but also because tricolour productions are the most prone to improvisation and the most adept at solving problems. If you consider, instead, the American ones, the tone is totally different: everything is classified, meticulous, with countless tests to obtain perfection, but I much prefer the Italian method because it represents me best”.

The interpreter of Robb Stark of Games of Thrones, has no doubt: “On the subject of social inequalities, this Festival is in the right track, because it brings together, in the same place, people from far and wide… here the social class makes no difference”. Precisely with regard to his iconic role of King in the North and to his farewell in the episode of the Red Wedding, he said: “In that moment, after living side by side with the character for almost five years, this was the last shot, a substantial parallelism between the life on the set and my own life. It was a full-fledged farewell, which has made the moment less traumatic but also more realistic. At that moment, I really said goodbye to my friends and colleagues who, during the filming, have become my family”.



Marvel’s next big superhero movie, “Eternals,” is in theaters only on November 5.

Ten new character portraits showcase Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, and more cast.

Get to know them before the film’s release next month.

“Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden plays Ikaris, another leader of the Eternals.

Ikaris can fly and shoot beams of cosmic energy from his eyes. Here, his character has a romance with Sersi.

In the comics, Ikaris goes undercover as a human named Ike Harris (very subtle).

CBR: Also posted this in May-
In Marvel comics lore, Ikaris (Richard Madden) is the father of the Icarus, the character from Greek Mythology who flies too close to the sun with his magical wings. After his son died, Ikaris took his name and his original name has never been revealed. He has extreme physical abilities, even compared to other Eternals. He’s faster, stronger, able to withstand intense temperatures and force. It’s practically impossible to wear him out or injure him. Though he also possesses psychic abilities, he is not as adept as his counterparts in those areas. Ikaris and Sersi have been in love for many lifetimes, but the presence of the Black Knight in Eternals poses a problem for the couple. And as the end of the trailer suggests, he’s not known for his humility.



The film gives an all new meaning to “dysfunctional family.”

COLLIDER: Marvel’s newest film, Eternals, is set to deal with a universe far wider than MCU fans have ever imagined before. With the film’s cast of characters being the strongest the cinematic universe has ever seen, the new story (directed by Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao) will take fans to all-new, fantastic heights — including the beginning of the Marvel universe as we know it, according to an all-new featurette.

The new video, featuring soundbites from the film’s cast and crew, highlights the true enormity of Eternals’ story, moving beyond the Avengers and into something far bigger and more important than a band of earthbound superheroes. According to Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios and producer on Eternals, the new film is set to not only explore the Eternals’ connection to humanity, but also the world they live in, and how it (and they) came to be:

“Eternals explores the very creation of the Marvel universe itself. The Eternals are these remarkably super-powered characters, but also a dysfunctional family unit, [and] the person to bring that together was Academy Award winner Chloé Zhao. The impact the Eternals have on the MCU will be nothing less than redefining the cinematic universe entirely.”

Set to deal with the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame and the world left behind after the Avengers undid Thanos’s snap, Zhao wants the film’s focus to be on her characters, these overpowered marvels (pun intended) who have fallen in love with humanity and are learning to cope with what has happened to them in this traumatic aftermath. Audiences are set to go on “emotional journeys with these Eternals”, she says, “To figure out who they are and what it means to be human.”

Eternals stars Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kit Harrington, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, and Brian Tyree Henry, with a script from Patrick Burleigh and Ryan and Kaz Firpo. The film will premiere exclusively in theaters on November 5. Check out the full video below:




 

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.

Pre-order the Autumn 2021 issue now…



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?”

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.”

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.”
