Richard Armitage interview: Audible’s Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde, My Zoe, The Hobbit and more

Duncan Bowles Nov 15, 2017

Richard Armitage chats to us about his new audio production, Dracula, The Hobbit, his upcoming projects and more...

Just the other month we had the pleasure of chatting to Richard Armitage when he was promoting Pilgrimage, but as luck (and his productivity) would have it, we were given the opportunity for a catch up about his latest voice performance, with the Audible release of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde.

Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story comes as part of The Monster Collection, a Gothic trilogy which also includes a reading of Frankenstein by Dan Stevens and Dracula by Greg Wise. There’s also ‘an exclusive introduction by Dr. Maria Mellins and Dr. Peter Howell, Senior Lecturers in Gothic literature at St Mary's University, London’ who, strangely enough, are both people I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years – it’s a small world indeed.

Why British TV producers are going global

Trend towards international funding means more and more productions are featuring talent from beyond British shores

It's a trend you may have spotted already: British dramas often seem to have an actor from beyond these shores in them these days – often an American. And it's not just because of the need to balance the books by selling the dramas abroad.

With programme-makers' budgets under pressure and viewers expecting the same glossy production values on the small screen as they see on the big one, UK broadcasters are turning to the Us and Europe to help fund what they hope will be the next big drama hit.

But complications can result. The American actor Elisabeth Moss – best known as Peggy in Mad Men – appears in Oscar-winning director Jane Campion's eagerly awaited Top of the Lake later this year. Top of the Lake has a long list of backers, including the BBC and the Sundance Channel,

Strigoi writer/director Faye Jackson talks Vampires, gore FX and Romanian folklore

Faye Jackson fields some questions from projectcyclops about her first feature film, a horror/thriller/mystery about the Romanian myth of the Strigoi. You can read his review here.

How did you become interested in the Strigoi myth? Before seeing your film I’d never heard of it, and the Internet has so many convoluted and alternative descriptions of what Strigoi really are. Was that part of the attraction?

I’d never heard of the Strigoi myth until I went to Romania (my husband’s Romanian and I’ve visited a lot over the past 10 years).

I was researching the origins of Dracula out of curiosity and became interested in the folklore stories that appear to have inspired Stoker. I immediately loved the accounts I read of Strigoi. In particular I remember reading a story about a guy burying an uncle only to go home and find him sitting in his favourite chair,
