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/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.”

Press: Watch Taron Egerton and Richard Madden have a lovers’ quarrel in Rocketman deleted scene

 

EW – Saturday night’s alright for fighting…and so, apparently, is any other night (or day) when it comes to the contentious professional and romantic relationship between Elton John (Taron Egerton) and his manager John Reid (Richard Madden).

Rocketman chronicles Elton John’s rise to fame from his early days as a childhood piano-playing prodigy to the peak of his fame in the 1970s and ’80s and his descent into a drug-fueled haze. The film also gave fans a glimpse into John’s fraught love life, including a toxic relationship with his manager John Reid.

In this exclusive deleted clip, tensions mount once again between the pair as they continue to fight over what’s best for Elton’s career — here, it’s whether or not to disclose his sexuality to his mother, a figure who has been a nearly lifelong source of angst for the rock star. As Elton prepares for a show, Reid corners him about coming out to his mother, even threatening to tell her himself.

“What I love about our scenes in the film is that they are two massive personalities,” Egerton previously told EW about sharing the screen with Madden. “It’s a bit like an unstoppable force and an immovable object and a lot of the conflict in the film lies there. We had great scenes to play with.” Including some that didn’t make the final cut, as seen here.

Though they’d never met before filming, Egerton and Madden became fast friends working together on Rocketman and their friendship has proved a fan favorite ever since, with the pair adorably reuniting at EW’s Comic-Con party last month.

While promoting the film, Egerton and Madden told EW they were highly anticipating the DVD bonus features, including a cut portion of their “Honky Cat” musical number. “It’s very cheeky and naughty and we had a lot of fun with it despite the logistical challenges,” said Egerton. “Richard was better at it than I was. There’s a sequence that’s cut actually, which is slightly heartbreaking because a lot of work went into it.”

The Digital, 4k Ultra HD, and Blu-ray releases boast over 75 minutes of bonus content, most notably four extended musical sequences and 10 deleted/extended scenes, including the one exclusively featured here. Other features include sing-along tracks of 13 songs; interviews with Elton John, the cast, and filmmakers; footage from recording studio sessions, as well as three featurettes exclusive to the digital release.

Watch the clip above for more. Rocketman is available on digital beginning August 6.
