Harry Melling Talks Acting with The Stage
Posted by Megs

In a new interview with The Stage, Harry Melling talks about his acting career and figuring how how to go from  being a “child actor” to an “actor”.

Tell me about your role  in The Angry Brigade.
I play lots of different  people, which is something I’ve never done before. It’s something that terrified me because I liked the idea of hanging on to one person and making sure that story is charted throughout. If you’re playing lots of different people, you’re juggling a lot of different balls. Sometimes, I feel that when you watch that style of acting, you see the skill of the actor as opposed to  the character, so in that respect it’s a very interesting challenge to try to make each character as defined as the others.

Has doing film work as  a child actor influenced the way you work now?
It influenced me in terms of watching older people be on set. It confirmed it was something I wanted to do, but it must have influenced me in other ways I can’t tell you how or why. But I always felt very comfortable on stage, and when I was at drama school there was a heavy emphasis on stagecraft, which has been really useful for me.

What made you undertake formal training?
I really wanted to bridge that gap between being a child actor and an actor. I’m not saying drama school is always the way to do that, but it made sense for me. I always wanted to be as good as I could be, and I think drama school teaches you how to fall on your arse, which is exactly what I needed.

 

The Angry Brigade runs at Warwick Arts Centre until October 17, and then at Watford Palace Theatre from October 21-25. Visit this website for more information.

David Yates Directing Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them
Posted by Megs

SnitchSeeker is reporting that CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment Kevin Tsujihara announced some exciting news about Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them in a Time Warner Investor Meeting today. The exciting news:

  • It will indeed be a trilogy, in the least (as we previously reported) to be released in 2016, 2018 and 2020. This means we may get more than 3 films if the first 3 do well.
  • David Yates will direct as was speculated back in August
  • David Heyman will produce (as we reported last year)

And, for those of you that missed it, J.K. Rowling revealed a small synopsis for the films through Twitter last week: Newt only meant to stay in New York for a few hours. Circumstances ensured that he remained…

Update: There is now a press release, the relevant section may be read below:

The Studio will release three pictures, in 2016, 2018 and 2020, based on best-selling author J.K. Rowling’s original story and screenwriting debut, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” Set in an extension of her familiar wizarding world, featuring magical creatures and characters inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook and its fictitious author, Newt Scamander, “Fantastic Beasts” will be directed by David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, and reunite the filmmaking team of David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
