True love conquers all in first teaser for season 2 of The Affair

30 June 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its return in the fall, Showtime has debuted the first teaser trailer for season two of its critically acclaimed, Golden Globe-winning drama The Affair, starring Ruth Wilson, Dominic West, Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson. Take a look here…

At once deeply observed and intriguingly elusive, The Affair explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. Noah is a New York City schoolteacher and novelist who is happily married, but resents his dependence on his wealthy father-in-law. Alison is a young waitress trying to piece her life and marriage back together in the wake of a tragedy. Set in Montauk at the end of Long Island, the provocative drama unfolds separately from both the male and female perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of both to tell the story.

‘The Affair’ Star Ruth Wilson on Playing 2 Versions of Her Character and 7 Other Emmy Contender Questions

24 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Showtime’s “The Affair” is not just about the ramifications of an extramarital affair between two people, even as the ramifications of a relationship tear families apart and leave one guy dead. The unique draw of the show is that it’s told from two different perspectives: the man, Noah (Dominic West), and the woman, Allison (Ruth Wilson). “Like everything in life, it’s about how we tell our own stories and how they’re influenced by our experiences,” Wilson told TheWrap. “And how there isn’t really an objective truth. Everything is subjective. It’s a love story in that context, »

'The Affair' co-creator Sarah Treem talks sin, consequence and show's three year plan (Exclusive Video)'

19 June 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"We had three seasons when we pitched it, with an idea of what a potential fourth season could look like," says Sarah Treem about her outlook for "The Affair" when she and co-creator Hagai Levi pitched the series to Showtime. "The first season is the sin, and the third season is the cost. We've been playing a long game for a long time; in some ways that's been good … and in some ways it's been a little hamstrung. We've boxed ourselves into some corners that I wish we hadn't … but sometimes that's where the ingenuity comes from." (Watch our complete video chat below.) -Break- Maura Tierney on telling her side of the story next season in 'The Affair' (Exclusive Video) The series follows New York City writer Noah Solloway (Dominic West) and Montauk waitress Alison Bailey (Ruth Wilson), who are married to others, but meet one summer and begin an extramarital affair. »

The Meteoric Rise of the TV Anti-Heroine

19 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The age of the TV anti-hero may be drawing to a close, but the TV anti-heroine is just getting started.

This week, as we welcome back Piper Chapman and her fellow prison inmates (with binge-viewers catching up with the third-season launch of Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black" last Friday), and as we're introduced to Ani Bezzerides -- Rachel McAdams new morally ambiguous cop on Season 2 of HBO's "True Detective," debuting this Sunday -- TV viewers are becoming fully invested in dramas whose female leads are every bit as complicated, fascinating, charismatic, dangerous, and messily human as the Don Drapers and Tony Sopranos of the recent past.

The end of "Mad Men" last month seemed to mark the end of an era, and not just the 1960s as

experienced by the ad gurus at Sterling Cooper. With the departures from our screens in recent years of Don Draper, Jax Teller »

Ruth Wilson on 'The Affair' Role: "I Wanted to Challenge the Stigma of Affairs"

12 June 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

"I remember reading the script and really, I hadn't read anything like it in terms of the conceit of the piece, and that fascinated me," Ruth Wilson shared during The Hollywood Reporter's Drama Actress Roundtable. "It meant as an actor you could play two sides of the same character." The Affair is written to show the same story repeated from each main characters' view point. Wilson isn't afraid of the controversial subject matter of the Showtime drama. In fact, she welcomes it. "This is about an affair, and from my point of view, I really wanted to challenge the stigma of

Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Lizzy Caplan on How They Make Sex Scenes ‘Courageous’

10 June 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For The Hollywood Reporter's latest cover story, the magazine gathered a few of the best women on TV — Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson, Jessica Lange, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Lizzy Caplan, and Ruth Wilson — for a roundtable interview. In it, the A-list actresses had a frank and eye-opening conversation about playing polarizing women, why actors are making a mass exodus from movies to TV, sexism, and their dream roles. ("I want to play a superhero. I want to be a Bond girl. I want to play a man. I want to play a white woman," Taraji declared.) One of the most revealing moments in their lengthy discussion revolved around the topic of how each actress is redefining sexuality onscreen, particularly in how they approach sex scenes. For her first sex scene ever, in Baby Boy, Henson says she "went home and stripped down naked, stood in front of the mirror »

2015 Tony Awards Winners & Reactions: 'Fun Home' & 'Curious Incident' Win Big

7 June 2015 8:47 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"Not too bad, if I say so myself..." If I may take a quote from this year's Best Musical winner as I went 20/24 with my predictions for this year's 2015 Tony Awards. Undoubtedly, the two big winners of the night were the musical Fun Home and the play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, both of which took home five awards including honors for their leading men, directors, and, of course, Best Musical/Play. Right behind those two was the revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I, which picked up four awards, including Best Revival and for their long overdue leading lady Kelli O'Hara, who easily gave the best speech of the night (including dancing off the stage). I may predicted Tony co-host Kristin Chenoweth over her, but I am so happy to be wrong. yt id="MneMh2c-y0M" width="640" And what about Chenoweth »

The Affair is compelling television - but will we ever get the truth?

28 May 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Dominic West and Ruth Wilson’s The Affair demands us to be the jury, weighing the lies of a pair of lovers as they tell the different sides to their story. But who are we supposed to trust – and how will we reach a final judgement?

At away days and staff meetings in recent years, BBC drama commissioners have been prone to ask: “What stories do we want to tell?”, directing attention towards compelling narratives. An equally interesting question, though, might be: “How do we want to tell this story?”

For example, in a brainstorm structured around the search for stories that demand to be told, The Affair (Wednesdays, 9pm, Sky Atlantic) would struggle: it has an off-the-peg premise – the sort of thing that John Updike and John Cheever were familiarising in prose fiction more than 50 years ago – of marital infidelity among the moneyed east coast classes. But it is »
