A lovely snippet of news for you all today! With a huge thank you to Laron, I have been sent a short interview Felicity recently did for Interview Magazine, along with some gorgeous pictures which have been added to our gallery.

Felicity on Like Crazy:

RYE: Like Crazy was completely improvised. You made up every word of dialogue you spoke, didn’t you?

JONES: Yes. The way [director] Drake [Doremus] works is that we have the initial outline for each scene, and then we just experiment. So the takes are often a half an hour long. You may do 10 to 15 takes. But through that process there’s a dis- tillation. When you first start doing the take, you speak a lot, and there’s a nervousness. But by the end you find the right dialogue. Drake’s obsession is with capturing the moment and for something to come out of the acting that wasn’t expected. In reading the script, that was something I was excited about. It allows you, as an actor, to have complete freedom to explore.

RYE: Is it true that you sent an audition tape that included footage you shot of yourself in the shower?

JONES: Yeah. I actually shot three scenes in my flat, chosen from the script, that I thought would convey the way I wanted to play the character. Filming myself in the shower was just very instinctive. It was a close-up! But I didn’t really think about it then. Only afterwards I thought, He is going to think I’m completely insane. But by that time I’d already sent it.

Felicity on being compared to Cary Mulligan:

RYE: You’re being compared to other hot contemporary Brit- ish actresses—specifically you’ve been called the new Carey Mulligan. How does that sit with you?

JONES: I’ve always loved Carey’s acting, so it’s a privilege. I think comparisons are always an initial response, because people want to try to brand you. The more you work, the more people can see that you’re something different from what’s come before.

Felicity on Hysteria:

RYE: One of your next films is called Hysteria. What is that about?

JONES: I play Maggie Gyllenhaal’s younger sister. My character is a very prim, slightly stupid young Victorian woman.

If anyone would like to see Felicity perform on stage, it seems she will be returning to the Donmar Warehouse from June 8th – July 30th to reprise the title role of Luise in Schiller’s Luise Mille:

Michael Grandage’s penultimate directorial work at the Donmar. Poulton and Grandage teamed up together on Schiller’s Don Carlos which was Grandage’s final production at Sheffield Theatres in 2004. This play, sometimes known as Intrigue and Love was written by the German dramatist in 1784. Ferdinand, son of the most powerful statesman in Germany is ready to give up everything for the love of Luise Miller, the daughter of a musician. Felicity Jones plays Luise, returning to the Donmar after her performance in Grandage’s The Chalk Garden.

Thanks to Hillie for the tip, I have been able to find an add 3 small promotional images of Felicity in Albatross, I’m glad to see her pretty long hair again!

The Cliff House Hotel: Beth Fisher is cramming for her exams in deperation to escape to university, dad Jonathan, once the bright young thing of the literary world, is suffering from writer’s block. Wife Joa runs their hotel but resents it, him and everyone around her as she gave up her ‘promising career as and actress’ for this.

Their world is soon turned upside down when seventeen-year-old aspiring writer Emelia starts a new job at the hotel. Building a friendship with Beth and embarking on a love affair with Jonathan, secrets are revealed and relationships explode as the threads of the story collide and unravel. Can Emelia get rid of the Albatross that hangs around her neck and rewrite herself?

(If anybody can find these photos in a larger size I would be very grateful to receive them!)

News on Felicity is currently slow while she films Page Eight, so to pass the time I have uploaded over 300 images from her performance in Cemetery Junction, released last year.

IndieWire has sadly reported that Felicity is no longer attached to Trap for Cinderella, and her role has gone to unknown actress Tuppence Middleton instead.

For smaller independent producers, the problem with your long-atttached star suddenly generating new heat is that they’re flooded with new offers; bigger films, more tempting films. As such, it can be hard to keep their interest— Carey Mulligan, for instance, dropped out of British indie “This Beautiful Fantastic” in favor of “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” after “An Education” blew up. That same issue now faces Iain Softley and his psychodrama “Trap for Cinderella.”The project, based on the novel by “A Very Long Engagement” writer Sebastian Japrisot, involves a girl, Micky, who wakes up badly burned after a fire in which her best friend, Do, died.  It was formally announced back in November, with rising stars Felicity Jones and Imogen Poots set to take the two leads, and filming was meant to kick off in February. However, it being March, the film clearly hasn’t gotten underway, and it’s likely that the heat behind its two lead actresses may have caused the problems.

It seems that Felicity’s commitment to British project Page Eight, and comedy Cheerful Weather for the Wedding have left her unable to film Trap for Cinderella.

My apologies for the late update, while I was away Felicity attended two new events; a screening for The Tempest, alongside Helen Mirren, and the German premiere for Chalet Girl, looking very pretty in two striking outfits.

Edwin has also been kind enough to let us know that Felicity’s broadcast The Chalk Garden is going to be aired on Radio 3 this Sunday at 8pm, so be sure to check in!

Last, but certainly not least, I have discovered a lovely little interview on WalesOnline about Felicity’s increasing rise to fame:

Despite working in an industry where everyone prides themselves on having every hair in place, Felicity Jones is refreshingly honest about her own grooming.

The moment we meet to discuss her latest film, she tells me her shirt smells.

“I borrowed it. I think it’s been worn before as I can smell someone else’s sweat, so I apologise,” she says matter-of-factly…
