Five Things You Didn’t know about Megan Follows

23 May 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Megan Follows’s breakthrough role was Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables, which was a Canadian TV show based on the book of the same name so successful that it was translated into a number of languages for a number of other countries. The fact that she reprised the role for two sequels just cemented her role as the character. However, it is interesting to note that she has had numerous roles in movies, TV shows, and theater productions since that time, meaning that her acting career has consisted of much more than just one TV show. Here are five

‘Anne with an E’ Review: A ‘Breaking Bad’ Producer Updates ‘Anne of Green Gables’ for Our Darker Times

12 May 2017 8:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Once Netflix decided to change the title of its “Anne of Green Gables” reboot from plain old “Anne” (ugh!) to “Anne with an E,” it proved itself to be a true “kindred spirit” to the poor literary orphan girl.

The beloved character from Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Canadian children’s novel “Anne of Green Gables,” on which the series is based, insists upon that particular spelling of her name because of its elegance. That insistence is also indicative of Anne Shirley’s boisterous personality, which demands that she be heard, that people pay attention, that she is special. Fortunately, Netflix listened and along with settling on a fitting title, the streaming service has also crafted a unique adaptation that is simultaneously faithful to the source material in appearance and story, while expanding the story to comment upon the ills of 1900s rural Canadian society.

TV Review: ‘Anne With an E,’ Based on the Book ‘Anne of Green Gables’

11 May 2017 4:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Anne With an E,” like its protagonist, is fond of a little sweeping romance. The opening frames of the first episode of Netflix’s next offering depict Matthew Cuthbert (R.H. Thompson) astride a galloping horse, racing across a gorgeous and remote landscape of seaside meadows and flowering cherry trees. It’s a distinctly more dashing interpretation of Matthew than who he is in L.M. Montgomery’s “Anne of Green Gables,” in which the never-married Matthew is an old, shy man — reticent to a fault, afraid of women, and terrified of conflict. He would be surprised to learn that in “Anne With an E,” he cuts quite a heroic figure as he rushes through the pastoral landscape of Prince Edward Island.

But perhaps “Anne With an E” is showing us the world a little less than it is and a little bit more as 13-year-old redheaded orphan Anne Shirley (Amybeth McNulty) would want it to be: more “romantical »

Netflix's Anne of Green Gables adaptation Anne releases trailer

While I've heard the name Anne Of Green Gables before, somewhere, I must confess I've never read the novel. Apparently it is about "the adventures of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan girl who is mistakenly sent to Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, a middle-aged brother and sister who had intended to adopt a boy to help them on their farm in Prince Edward Island.

Trailer Watch: “Anne” Can Do Anything a Boy Can Do and More

5 April 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Amybeth McNulty in “Anne”

“My name is Anne Shirley Cuthbert, and please be sure to spell ‘Anne’ with an ‘e’,” the heroine of Netflix’s newest series requests on her first day at a new school. Even if you’ve never heard of “Anne of Green Gables” before, that one line tells you all you need to know about the outspoken, self-assured protagonist.

Based on L.M. Montgomery’s classic series of novels, “Anne” follows the imaginative and adventurous Anne Shirley (Amybeth McNulty), a young orphan, as she arrives at Prince Edward Island near the turn of the century. “After an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, [Anne] is mistakenly sent to live with an aging sister and brother,” the official synopsis reads. “Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform the lives of Marilla (Geraldine James) and Matthew Cuthbert (R.H. Thomson) and eventually the entire small town in which they live with her unique spirit, fierce intellect, and brilliant imagination. Anne’s adventures will reflect timeless and topical issues including themes of identity, feminism, bullying, and prejudice.”

The new spot for “Anne” touches on these themes as we see the main character humiliated when a classmate tells her, “I won’t eat next to dirty trash.” But Anne can handle herself: The trailer also shows her arguing with Marilla that “girls can do anything a boy can do and more,” and smacking classmate Gilbert (“20th Century Women’s” Lucas Jade Zumann) across the face with a book after he pulls her hair.

Emmy-winner Moira Walley-Beckett (“Breaking Bad”) is “Anne’s” showrunner. She penned every episode and serves as exec producer alongside Miranda de Pencier (“Beginners”).

Niki Caro helmed the first episode of the series, while Sandra Goldbacher (“Me Without You”), Helen Shaver (“Orphan Black”), Patricia Rozema (“Into the Forest”), and Amanda Tapping (“Supernatural”) are among the series’ other directors.

“Anne” premieres on Netflix May 12.
