Clemence Poesy in Final Talks to Play Queen Isabella in Richard II
Posted by Megs

According to The Daily Mail, Clemence Poesy is in the final stages of negotiations to play French-born Queen Isabella in Richard II, a new film for the BBC based on one of William Shakespeare’s plays.  Richard II is part of a 4 part series which will also include Henry IV Part 1 & 2 and Henry V.  It will be shot this coming June and July. Clemence is best known for playing Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter films and has more recently guest starred on a few episodes of Gossip Girl.  More information on the film may be read below.

Clemence Poesy the Harry Potter star, has been picked to play Richard II’s Queen in an epic film based on Shakespeare’s historical play about the battle for the English crown. Ben Whishaw, who performed a landmark Hamlet for Trevor Nunn at the Old Vic, will play the monarch who believes he has the divine right to be King.

His [Director Rupert Goold] Richard II, though, will be opened out and shot like a proper movie. The drama will boast scale and grandeur. To that end, Andrew McAlpine, who designed An Education and Made In Dagenham, has been contracted as production designer and he, along with Goold and producers Ben Stephenson and Rupert Ryle-Hodges for the BBC, and Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris for Neal Street Productions, are considering using locations such as St David’s Cathedral in Pembrokeshire and Ely Cathedral in Cambridge.

I will be posting more information as it develops.

New Interview with Clemence Poesy in The Guardian
Posted by Megs

The Guardian has posted a new interview with Clemence Poesy, who plays Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter films. In the new interview she briefly discusses the series. (p.s. they need to get their facts straight regarding the tasks in Goblet of Fire, ha ha)  She also talks about her life at home and other films she has been in.

Presumably, after learning to scuba dive for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (in which her character endured an extended underwater swimming race in order to retrieve a golden dragon egg), she is used to suffering for her art. Does she feel bereft now that the Harry Potter franchise has come to an end? “Not really. I was just in one film and then I came back for the last one. To me, it was simply one of the experiences I’ve had. That was it. It was fun, but it’s not as if it is a big part of me.” Still, she keeps in touch with Emma Watson and sees her occasionally on the front row at fashion shows – Poésy is something of a muse to designers including Karl Lagerfeld and Balenciaga’s Nicolas Ghesquière. “Emma’s a sweet young woman and very bright,” says Poésy, as though talking fondly about a particularly sprightly grandchild. “I like Emma’s new haircut. It’s very Jean Seberg.”

Premiere.fr have posted a new interview with Clemence Poesy, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps and Mark Williams where they all discuss what it has been like being a part of the series and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I.   Mark Williams talks about what it was like seeing the younger actors grow up.  Unfortunately, Clemence speaks in French so I have no idea what she says, if anyone can translate please send it in! They also talk about the Twilight vs. Harry Potter “battle”.

Clemence Poesy To Star in Gossip Girl
Posted by Megs

According to The Wrap, Clemence Poesy may be guest starring in Gossip Girl next season.  Clemence plays Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

A Warner Bros. spokesperson  confirmed that the French actress is signed on to do a guest stint on the CW hit “Gossip Girl.” Poesy played young sorceress Fleur Delacour in the “Harry Potter” movies.

To avoid releasing any spoilers, the studio spokesperson said they couldn’t reveal any details about Poesy’s character or the number of episodes she will appear in.

“Gossip Girl’s” first two episodes of the coming season will be set in Paris, so we assume Poesy will be coming on the show to add a little local flavor.

A CW release last month said: “Season four will open with a radiant Serena and Blair enjoying their grand and romantic summer in Paris… until Chuck mysteriously arrives in town with a new girlfriend and a new identity.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, producers in May began casting the recurring role of Eva, “an utterly gorgeous female in her 20s or 30s who boasts a warm heart and an authentic French accent.”

This is the only post I remember that’s missing, I’ll fix the rest later
