Oops, and while I was writing the previous post, a new interview with Richard for SC dropped! It’s a video interview, so don’t be fooled when you go to Hello! Magazine’s website and find a written text. That is basically just the transcript of the interview.
The interview is a conversation between RA and fellow actor Martine McCutcheon (Love Actually), done via Zoom. They talk for eleven minutes, and it goes in depth about RA’s process with working on Ray Levine etc. Also some more private questions about Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
So – have you watched it? Goodness me. I am not #TeamPatio at all, but whoa, has Richard
once again fallen into the fountain of youth? That picture in the attic is getting uglier and uglier! Clean shaven, he looks so good. Despite (or because) of the grey temples. Nice to see that they are still around.
Also, glasses. Hello again, mykita. I diagnose presbyopia 🤭😉.
Where is Park City? And have you booked your flight there yet? Better get on your skis, though. He’ll be up on some mountain on New Year’s Day, whizzing back down again.
And I am now really curious about the show. Ray may actually be a more interesting character than I thought. (Have not read the book.) But maybe I won’t be disappointed… Also, RA mentioned he studied a photographer to prepare for his role, Tim Hetherington. (Might get into that in a separate post. Hetherington was a very well-known conflict photographer – which makes him a somewhat surprising choice as a model for RA’s character in SC, I think – but I do not know what backstory they have given Ray in the Netflix show… Maybe his “documentary photography” was indeed conflict photography… I always assumed he was a street photographer.)
Anyway – nice interview – and hopefully we’ll get more to come!
