Jessie Buckley on Covid filming: ‘The world’s greatest love scene – and we couldn’t touch!’
THE GUARDIAN: Though it’s meant to be a one-on-one interview, and government rules prohibit group gatherings, Jessie Buckley has brought along a companion when we meet by the River Lea in London. “This is my bike,” says the Irish actor, proudly presenting a battered turquoise Bridgford that has a malfunctioning bell, clickety spokes and rattling chains. “Sorry about the noise she makes.” As we set off walking along the river path, Buckley, 31, explains that she once paid a cycle mechanic to tighten the nuts and screws, which definitely made it a quieter ride, but also stripped the bike of its character. So she got the mechanic to loosen everything again and has been jingle-jangling around the city since, “like a happy, noisy clown”. Buckley thumbs the bell twice with satisfaction. Ting-ting!

The river path is bustling with activity this afternoon. Geese honk, narrowboaters tend wood fires, and in a car park that borders the water a man stands alone striking golf balls into a bucket. Buckley, dressed in torn jeans and a tightly fitted beret, stomping through puddles in her felty shoes, fits in well with the general chaos and eccentricity of the scene. At one point she falls into conversation with a bearded older man in a T-shirt who staggers by, recognises her County Kerry accent, and wonders (of the beret) why anybody from that lovely part of Ireland would want to “masquerade as a Frenchwoman”. Buckley hoots with laughter. The pair of them wind up exchanging endearments in Irish.

Listening to her chat, I realise that it’s possible to have watched through many hours of Buckley’s consistent and excellent acting work without having met this true Irish persona at all. She played a Glaswegian in her breakthrough film, Wild Rose, in 2018. Afterwards she went gravelly, English and posh in 2019’s Judy. That year she was allowed to do a generalised Irish brogue in the ensemble drama Chernobyl, but her two biggest roles from 2020 (in the TV drama Fargo, and in Charlie Kaufmann’s movie I’m Thinking Of Ending Things) required she go American. Happily, in Buckley’s next bit of work, a filmed version of Romeo & Juliet that was produced by the National Theatre and will soon broadcast on Sky, we get something close to the realer thing – a Kerry-accented Juliet, vital and quirky as Buckley herself, and perfect foil to the English actor Josh O’Connor as a hunched, repressed Romeo.

Alex Garland Sets Next Film At A24 With Jessie Buckley And Rory Kinnear To Star

EXCLUSIVE: With his FX limited series Devs behind him, Alex Garland has his sights on his next feature film. Garland’s has set his next project, Men, with A24 and has tapped Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear to star. Sources add Buckley’s deal is not closed but is headed in right direction.

Besides directing, Garland penned the script to the untitled project. Scott Rudin, who produced his previous projects, returns as producer along with Eli Bush and DNA’s Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich.

The film follows a young woman who goes on a solo vacation to the English countryside after the death of her ex-husband. A24 will finance and distribute.

A24 had no comment.

As for Buckley, sources tell Deadline that Garland met with talent for the part last year; it quickly became a sought-after role for some of the town’s rising stars. Buckley would eventually land the role, after which Garland quickly set Kinnear.

This marks Garland’s first film since directing the Paramount thriller Annihilation in 2018. The film also marks his return to A24, the studio that helped launch his career with Ex Machina.

Buckley was most recently seen in FX’s Fargo and also earned raves for her Netflix film I’m Thinking of Ending Things. She can be seen next in National Theatre’s Romeo and Juliet for PBS and Sky Arts alongside Josh O’Connor.

Kinnear was most recently seen in Showtime’s Penny Dreadful: City of Angels and can be seen next in the next James Bond pic No Time to Die.

Garland is repped by WME and Buckley is repped by CAA, Range Media Partners and United Agents. Kinnear is repped by Markham, Froggart and Irwin.

Next Gen Talent 2020: The Hollywood Reporter’s Rising Young Stars Revealed

Meet the up-and-coming actors atop every Hollywood agent, casting director and studio executive’s wish list. These 20 rising stars are fronting their own shows, ushering in the next generation of superheroes and playing icons like Princess Diana (Emma Corrin of Netflix’s The Crown) and President Barack Obama (Kingsley Ben-Adir of Showtime’s The Comey Rule).

Some, like Normal People’s Paul Mescal and Hollywood’s Jeremy Pope, have even caught the attention of Emmy voters, earning first-time nominations for their onscreen debuts. Others, like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s Danny Ramirez and Matrix 4‘s Jessica Henwick, are suiting up for top-secret roles in major Hollywood franchises. They join a list that, in the past, has anointed such talent as Atlanta‘s Lakeith Stanfield, The Queen’s Gambit‘s Anya Taylor Joy and Lovecraft Country‘s Jonathan Majors, now all established stars.

This year’s crop of actors — a mix of fresh faces (hello, Never Have I Ever‘s Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) and long-working actors who’ve recently broken out in a new way (see: The Righteous Gemstones‘ Skyler Gisondo) — are destined for big- and small-screen stardom. Says The Boys star Erin Moriarty, “It’s funny how you can work for ten years but all you need is that one project that gets attention.”

Jessie Buckley, 30

Between ChernobylFargo and I’m Thinking of Ending Things, the Irish performer is leaning hard into prestige projects. A grad of the lionized Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Buckley got her start on BBC reality show I’d Do Anything before finding crossover success with 2018’s Wild Rose. Up next: Maggie Gyllenhaal’s The Lost Daughter and Cold War spy thriller The Courier.

I’d love to star in a remake of … Les Amants du Pont-Neuf by Leos Carax — but I hope no one ever does because it’s perfect as it is.”

My guilty pleasure show is … The Repair Shop on BBC.”

If I weren’t an actor, I’d be … “A clown, or someone in a circus in the ’50s. Or a fat old lady who lives in Greece and sits on the benches by the sea every evening, not saying a word to anyone else on the bench. Just looking satisfied and thinking about maybe having a cheeky skinny dip in the morning.”

Onscreen character I most identified with as a kid … “Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

The person Ive been most starstruck by … Bonnie Raitt

My most embarrassing audition story … “Doing a very bad ‘cat’ dance audition for the film Cats. It was cat-astrophic!”

Why arent more people in Hollywood talking about … “Why no one walks in L.A.?! It’s so hot. If that was Ireland people would be outside rubbing butter on themselves getting a tan.”

When will people in Hollywood stop talking about … “Franchises.”

Josh O’Connor and Jessie Buckley to Star in National Theatre’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’ for PBS, Sky Arts

Does No 'Survivor' Mean A 'Big Brother' Winter Season? | QNewsHub

Josh O’Connor, who plays Prince Charles in season 4 of Netflix’s “The Crown,” and BAFTA winner Jessie Buckley (“Wild Rose,” “Chernobyl”) are set to star as Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in “Romeo & Juliet,” a made-for-television production by the U.K.’s National Theatre.

Romeo & Juliet” was originally scheduled to play this summer to theater audiences, but was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now re-conceived for the screen, this new 90-minute version will be shot over three weeks in the National Theatre’s Lyttelton theater, which will be temporarily transformed into a studio.

Rehearsals will begin in November and filming in December. The production will bow on PBS in the U.S. and on Sky Arts in the U.K. in 2021.

While the National Theatre has broadcast stage productions to cinemas for over a decade through its popular National Theatre Live program, this will be the first time an original production for screen has been created in its London headquarters.

The production will be directed by National Theatre associate Simon Godwin (“Antony and Cleopatra”) and adapted for screen by Emily Burns. The cast also includes Fisayo Akinade (“The Antipodes”), Deborah Findlay (“Coriolanus”), Tamsin Greig (“Twelfth Night”), Lucian Msamati (“His Dark Materials”) and Shubham Saraf (“A Suitable Boy”).

Rufus Norris, director and joint chief executive of the National Theatre, said: “I wanted to find a way to use that space to create something exciting and special for audiences, that utilized the exceptional skill and craft of the National Theatre’s teams, freelancers and creative associates, and that could reach as many people as we can. That’s all going to be possible with this brilliant film of ‘Romeo & Juliet.’

Godwin said: “I think it’s a genius idea and I’m honored to be able to create the first film. I think I speak for myself, the creative team and the cast when I say how delighted we are to be focusing all our creativity into this version of ‘Romeo & Juliet’ once more. Some ideas are staying, lots of new ones are coming in — I’m very excited about this new genre, combining film and theater, and bringing together the remarkable talents of those industries.

Romeo & Juliet” is produced by David Sabel, who created the National Theater Live program, at Sabel Productions. Executive producers are Dixie Linder, Cuba Pictures (“McMafia”), David Horn, Great Performances, Christine Schwarzman and Darren Johnston, No Guarantees, and Philip Edgar Jones for Sky Arts.

“I’m Thinking of Ending Things” Screen Captures

Last Friday, “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” debuted on Netflix, which was a critical and public success. Jessie was one of the great highlights of the film, having her acting as Lucy, Louisa, Yvonne… let’s stay with ‘Young Woman‘, widely acclaimed. I can say that the feature film, in addition to opening many doors for Jessie and bringing a lot of recognition to her, is among the best of our favorite actress. It needs, if possible, a prior reading of Ian Reid‘s book or a very open mind so that there are no hasty interpretations and judgments. Finally, check out Jessie’s screen captures in the film in our gallery:
