Interview Magazine have a new interview with Emily talking about the recent release of The Young Victoria.
The Young Victoria (out in the US this Friday) is a piece of historical revisionism. Neither a sweeping history of a monarch, nor the conventional image of the severe and reticent Queen Victoria, the film instead offers an intimate portrait of a spirited, defiant, and often-overlooked girl. Emily Blunt, best known for her role as the striving assistant in 2006’s The Devil Wears Prada, captures the dual existences–private and public– of the young sovereign. Eshewing the stuffiness of nineteenth century period pieces, writer Julian Fellowes and director Jean-Marc Vallée aimed to give an old story a more modern, dynamic telling. At its center is the intense, devoted relationship between Victoria and Prince Albert (Rupert Friend). Continue reading
In one of the deleted scenes from The Young Victoria Emily shows off her singing talents yet again. I’m not sure what the song is, but I have uploaded it for you to listen too below. Let me know if anyone can guess the song =)
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Young Victoria will be closing this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The festival begins September 10. The Young Victoria has yet to be released in North American, so I hope this will help it get the attention it deserves! Thank you, Lisa, for the heads up.
With the DVD release of The Young Victoria getting even closer a deleted scene from the film has been released! It’s a beautiful scene between Emily and Rupert Friend. Screen captures are below and the video can be viewed here.
Hello everyone. I added a few more production stills from The Young Victoria to the gallery.
Two gorgeous new posters from The Young Victoria have been added to the gallery, thank you so much to Tara for donating those! I have also uploaded another image from the promotional photoshoot Emily and Rupert did.
The Irish Independant has an interesting article about Emily and her role in The Young Victoria. The article is already in the press archive. It also came with a love picture of Emily in her Victoria costume. I managed to find a larger version for the gallery.
Blunt and Dench’s portrayals are at opposite bookends of Victoria’s life, but both found a way of bringing the hoary old matriarch to life […] Her relationship with Albert is the lynchpin of the movie — it helps that he is played by Rupert Friend. “Poor Rupert,” says Blunt, “we were being interviewed together this morning, and some of the female journalists just came out and said to him, ‘You’re gorgeous’. I mean, what do you say to that? He was really embarrassed.” I’m pleased to see that Blunt is a bit of a lioness when it comes to her friends, or should we say, Friend. I make a mental note not to call him a heart-throb in her presence.
Hello everyone. I found two more clips from The Young Victoria, which opens today in UK cinemas. If you get a chance to see it, please let us know what you thought of it! Meanwhile, I added the clips to the video archive and screencaps to the gallery!
