Georgina Campbell: 'I wanted to be an air hostess, not an actor'

22 August 2016 10:44 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

At 16, Georgina Campbell hated auditions and never had more than one line in the school play. So how did she beat Sarah Lancashire to TV’s biggest prize? The rising star on lucky breaks and why there’s no shame in playing the girlfriend

Last year, at the age of 22, and barely into her career, Georgina Campbell won Britain’s biggest TV prize for best actress. Not many people expected her to – she was up against Sarah Lancashire, Keeley Hawes and Sheridan Smith. And she was virtually unknown – her BBC3 drama Murdered By My Boyfriend, a domestic-violence drama based on a true story, was critically acclaimed but had nothing like the hype of Happy Valley and Line of Duty. But if you were one of the 3.5 million people who watched Campbell play Ashley – the young woman beaten to death by her abusive partner – with such restraint and realism, her win was no surprise. »

[caption id="attachment_48716" align="aligncenter" width="590"] Image via BBC.[/caption]

The BBC has renewed the Line of Duty TV show for a fifth season. Previously renewed through season four, the successful BBC Two show is moving to BBC One, for its upcoming fourth season.

A British police procedural drama starring Martin Compston, Vicky McClure, Adrian Dunbar, Craig Parkinson, and Keeley Hawes, Line of Duty is written and created by Jed Mercurio and produced by World Productions.

The Durrells proves a rollicking delight for ITV

29 April 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Series based on Gerald Durrell’s Corfu trilogy meets need for hit Sunday night drama to fill void left by Downton Abbey

The old adage of never working with children and animals is being tested by ITV with its main Sunday night drama. But The Durrells, a fun mix of gorgeous locations, four badly behaved kidults and an odd menagerie of animals, is proving a success for the broadcaster which has been searching for a Sunday night hit since Downton Abbey came to an end in December.

Based on Gerald Durrell’s Corfu trilogy, the drama starring Keeley Hawes as the whimsical widow fleeing a prewar Britain for the sunny Mediterranean is attracting an average audience of 5.9 million viewers on a Sunday night, nearly 2 million more than the channel’s average.

Line Of Duty: creator Jed Mercurio interview

We spoke to the Line Of Duty creator about series 3, Lindsay Denton, The Caddy, Jimmy Savile, tension, thrillers and more…

Warning: contains spoilers for Line Of Duty series 3, episode 5 (Nb interview took place before the finale aired. Here's a spoiler-filled post-finale chat).

As Line Of Duty viewers might expect from the man who’s turned the police interview into an art-form, Jed Mercurio is a very measured, practiced interviewee. He gives precise, categorical answers unfurred by the usual hesitations and rambling false starts. Bring up the perception that Line Of Duty’s series two finale was hard to follow and he explains, patiently, that the most reliable evidence we have suggests otherwise. He speaks fluently in terms of suppositions, anecdotal evidence, arithmetical means and statistical outliers. When he completes a given response, he simply stops talking.

Mercurio’s voice only became heated twice in the next six thousand words. »

Line of Duty's Craig Parkinson on playing TV's nastiest man: 'I'm a master at lurking'

26 April 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As Line of Duty thunders to a climax, Craig Parkinson talks about playing bent copper ‘Dot’ Cottan – and his own criminal past

‘Espresso.” Craig Parkinson has reluctantly revealed his trick for making perfect chilli, to divert my attention away from the endgame in BBC2’s all-conquering Line of Duty, because he is “shit at keeping secrets”. He throws me another minor indiscretion: the character he plays, Matthew “Dot” Cottan, was called Matthew “Babs” Windsor “for a looooong time” in early drafts of the show. But will Dot be back for the already-commissioned fourth series? Parkinson consults the invisible notes on his hand, then the very visible BBC publicist in the corner of the room. “No comment.”

Well-kept secrets have turned a tightly written, impeccably performed police thriller, which debuted in 2012, into one of 2016’s most talked-about shows. After the premature death of putative third-series star Danny Waldron (played by Daniel Mays »

Line Of Duty series 3 episode 2 review

31 March 2016 10:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

If paranoia were a drug, Line Of Duty would be a top-rung dealer. Series 3’s twists and revelations keep coming…

This review contains spoilers.

“Sincerity is everything. Fake that and you’ve got it made.” That old showbiz joke applies to other arenas than just Hollywood, as this week’s Line Of Duty proved.

By closing on Lindsay Denton practising a courtroom monologue, drilling each line, gesture and glance like a leading lady in her dressing room rather than a prison cell, the episode cemented the thematic importance of performance in this show. These characters may be police officers, but they’re also players in an improvised drama that relies on them never letting their masks slip.

What went on in that bedroom? Either Danny shot himself or was killed, both versions of the truth that were rehearsed by his rapidly shrinking squad this week on stage »

18 March 2016 8:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The rise of Clint Mansell's career has been impressive to watch. Breaking out by tuning up the dread in Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem For A Dream," in addition to becoming the director's go-to composer, the artist has logged impressive credits with Park Chan-Wook ("Stoker"), Duncan Jones ("Moon"), Joe Carnahan ("Smokin' Aces"), and more, and this year sees him add another auteur to his belt: Ben Wheatley. Mansell has penned the score for the director's upcoming "High-Rise."

It feels like I've been writing about Ben Wheatley's "High-Rise" forever, and frankly, I'm a bit out of things to say. You should know it's the director's most ambitious, starriest effort to date, and yet, it loses none of his surreal, oddball touch that first put him on the map. It's truly a singular vision and if you're looking for a distraction from the upcoming box office blockbuster season, this is what you want to buy a ticket for.

While Tom Hiddleston is the famous, hunky center of Ben Wheatley's surreal "High-Rise," the revelation for many might be Luke Evans. The actor gives a performance in the film unlike anything we've seen from him before, and two new clips from the movie highlight his magnetic turn.

Time and again, we've noted that the cast for Ben Wheatley's "High-Rise" —Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Peter Ferdinando and Keeley Hawes— is pretty killer. However, one name has is slightly less mentioned in the run-up to the release of the movie: Clint Mansell.
