Hayley Atwell - Film - Cassandra's Dream (VFF)

* updated 16 February


interview from outnow.ch [link]

Observer film podcast interview [link]

An excerpt from an article in the Guardian
"... He [Woody Allen] looked thin and pale. 'Don't worry about him,' said Hayley Atwell, who also stars in the film. 'It's all an act. He's very happy, he's got a wonderful life and he's very funny. He just gets bored with the questions because he's five steps ahead of everyone and his brain's onto the next thing.'"

Excerpt from an article:

"...all eyes at the Venice Film Festival were on their [Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell] co-star, actress Hayley Atwell.

Cassandra's Dream marks her big screen debut but she is already tipped for a bright future, having impressed in TV dramas In The Line Of Beauty and Mansfield Park.

She also has roles lined up as Julia Flyte in the remake of Brideshead Revisited and opposite Keira Knightley in period drama The Duchess.

But Cassandra's Dream was her first movie role and Atwell, 25, said: 'I'm very new and was working with Woody about a year after leaving drama school, so it was an incredible honour to have that role so early. I wasn't quite sure what I was doing, but it was a fantastic introduction for me into the world of film-making'..."


Have mostly been negative but nice things have been said about the cast.

Hollywood Reporter
"...Atwell is a major find, however, and like McGregor and Wilkinson, and the rest of a good cast, will go on to better things..."

"...Atwell is well cast..."
