Harriet estreou nos cinemas do UK no final do mês passado, por conta disso o Joe concedeu uma entrevista exclusiva para a ‘Evening Standard’ falando sobre os lugares que ele frequenta em Londres e muito mais. Confira:

Minha Londres: Joe Alwyn

O ator faz compras na Redchurch Street, senta-se para assados no domingo no Royal Oak e deseja poder multar as pessoas lentas no metrô.

Casa é…

Norte de Londres. Eu cresci no Tufnell Park e sempre morei perto de lá. Eu amo isso.

Qual foi a última peça que você viu?

Recentemente, fui ver Fleabag, pouco antes de encerrar. Eu tinha visto a série de TV, que é hilária, brilhante e inteligente.

Hotel Favorito?

O Covent Garden Hotel. Gosto que seja pequeno e discreto, e nada pareça muito novo ou moderno.

Ônibus, táxi ou metrô?

Eu tento andar por toda parte. Mas se for preciso, ônibus ou metrô.

Onde você mais gostaria de ser enterrado?

Mórbido! Não posso dizer que penso muito nisso, mas… O cemitério de Highgate é realmente bonito. Ou eu seria cremado e teria minhas cinzas espalhadas em Hampstead Heath, para todos os passeadores de cães.

Onde você recomendaria para um primeiro encontro?

Eu diria uma caminhada ao longo do Tamisa, ou talvez ao longo do canal em direção a Broadway Market. Há um bar de coquetéis divertidos chamado Off Broadway, por London Fields.

Se você pudesse comprar qualquer prédio e morar lá, qual seria?

Não sei se moraria lá, mas gostaria de comprar um pub realmente velho de Londres, com um belo jardim e muitas lareiras.

O que você faria se fosse prefeito por um dia?

Eu baniria muitos carros e as pessoas andariam mais. E eu também aplicaria uma penalidade para as pessoas que andam devagar no metrô. Isso me deixa louco. É um curso de assalto!

Bar favorito?

Para um assado de domingo, gosto do Royal Oak na Columbia Road.

O que faz de alguém londrino?

Um senso intrínseco de liberalidade e tolerância. É uma cidade que é celebrada por suas diferenças, o que nos torna únicos e fortes e quem somos.

O que você coleciona?

Pequenas bugigangas de feriados ou cenários de filmes e caixas de fósforos de hotéis.

Em quais lojas você confia?

Gosto da Livraria Muswell Hill, que sempre tem uma boa seleção, e as lojas, cafés e pubs da Redchurch Street. Também o BFI, Kipferl em Camden Passage e Toff’s em Muswell Hill para peixe e batatas fritas.

Você já teve uma briga com um policial?

Nada sobre o que vamos falar.

Para quem você liga quando quer se divertir?

Eu tenho um grupo principal de cerca de seis amigos que conheço desde os 12 anos. Todos moramos em Londres e conversamos praticamente todos os dias. Temos um grupo do WhatsApp, mas o nome é muito embaraçoso para compartilhar!

Onde você se exercita?

Joguei muito tênis enquanto crescia e estou tentando começar de novo. Eu também tenho alguns amigos que escalam, então eu tenho entrado nisso.

O que você está fazendo de trabalho no momento?

Eu tenho Uma Canção de Natal saindo com a BBC. Acabei de começar a trabalhar em Last Letter From Your Lover, com Felicity Jones e Shailene Woodley. E também participei por alguns dias no novo filme de Joanna Hogg, The Souvenir 2.

Joe recently had an interview with the Evening Standard where he shared some of favourite places and things about London. Check it out!

The actor shops on Redchurch Street, sits down to Sunday roast at the Royal Oak and wishes he could fine slow walkers on the Tube

Home is…

North London. I grew up in Tufnell Park and have always lived near there. I love it.

What was the last play you saw?

I recently went to see Fleabag, right before it closed. I’d seen the TV series, which is hilarious, brilliant and clever.

Favourite Hotel?

The Covent Garden Hotel. I like that it’s small and tucked away, and nothing feels too revamped or modern.

Bus, taxi or Tube?

I try to walk everywhere. But if I have to, bus or Tube.

Where would you most like to be buried?

Morbid! Can’t say I’ve given this much thought, but… Highgate Cemetery is really beautiful. Or I’d be cremated and have my ashes scattered on Hampstead Heath, for all the dog walkers.

Where would you recommend for a first date?

I’d say a walk along the Thames, or maybe along the canal towards Broadway Market. There’s a fun cocktail bar called Off Broadway by London Fields.

If you could buy any building and live there, which would it be?

I don’t know if I’d live there, but I’d like to buy a really old London pub, with a nice garden and plenty of fireplaces.

What would you do if you were Mayor for the day?

I’d ban a lot of cars and have people walk more. And I’d also enforce a penalty for people who walk slowly on the Tube. It drives me mad. It’s an assault course!

Favourite pub?

For a Sunday roast I like the Royal Oak on Columbia Road.

What makes someone a Londoner?

An intrinsic sense of liberality and tolerance. It’s a city that’s celebrated for its differences, which makes us unique and strong and who we are.

What do you collect?

Little trinkets from holidays or film sets, and matchboxes from hotels.

Which shops do you rely on?

I like the Muswell Hill Bookshop, which always has a good selection, and the shops, cafés and pubs on Redchurch Street. Also the BFI, Kipferl in Camden Passage, and Toff’s in Muswell Hill for fish and chips.

Have you ever had a run-in with a police officer?

None that we are going to talk about.

Who do you call when you want to have fun?

I’ve got a core group of around six friends who I’ve known since I was about 12. We all live in London and speak pretty much every day. We have a WhatsApp group, but the name is far too embarrassing to share!

Where do you work out?

I played a lot of tennis growing up and I’m trying to start again. I’ve also got some mates who go rock climbing, so I’ve been getting into that.

What are you up to at the moment for work?

I have A Christmas Carol coming out with the BBC. I’ve just started work on Last Letter From Your Lover, with Felicity Jones and Shailene Woodley. And I also popped in for a few days on Joanna Hogg’s new film, The Souvenir 2.

Joe Alwyn attended the TCA Summer Press Tour on August 6, 2019 in Los Angeles to discuss the upcoming BBC and FX miniseries A Christmas Carol where Joe will play the role of Bob Cratchit. Joe was joined by his costars Andy Serkis, Guy Pearce and producer Steven Knight. They discussed how this will be a contemporary adaptation within a period setting, focusing on the humanity of the characters in a way that will feel relevant to audiences today. Additionally, Joe discussed how he hasn’t seen many of the previous adaptations of A Christmas Carol so he was able to come into this project with fresh eyes and that this version will be darker and more haunting than previous. After the panel, Joe spoke with E Online about his character and the series, where he sees himself in 10 years, and celebrating Christmas. You can read the article below. You can also see photos of Joe at the event in our gallery:

FX NETWORK TCA SUMMER PRESS TOUR

Joe Alwyn is living his dream.

While promoting A Christmas Carol, his new FX miniseries about the Charles Dickensclassic, Alwyn was asked where he sees himself in 10 years. The answer?

“I’ve been very lucky, so far, to work with some very talented, great people who I’ve looked up to for a long, long time, that’s both directors and cast and crew, so if I could just keep doing that, that’d be a dream,” he told a small group of press after the 2019 Television Critics Association summer press tour panel.

On the panel, Alwyn said one of the best parts of acting was the catharsis it can provide.

“I find something cathartic about it in the sense that, depending on the role…you get to show all kinds of emotions, scream, shout and cry in a way that you don’t in real life,” he said. “I love seeing the magic of it all happen around you when you step on set. I’m still relatively new, in a relatively early stage in my career, so to step onto these sets with people who I’ve long admired and grown up watching, including Guy and [Andy Serkis], to see it all be created around you…and be a part of amazing stories like this…it’s kind of a dream come true.”

In A Christmas Carol, Alwyn plays Bob Cratchit, father of Tiny Tim, employee of Scrooge (Guy Pearce). In this version, the Bob Cratchit character has a new edge.

“He definitely shows some pluck, especially standing up to Scrooge that we haven’t seen before. His way of fighting back is within the office and sarcasm and snide comments and a slight bitterness and resentment,” Alwyn said. “Like with any human, there’s darkness in him, but he obviously serves a purpose at his essence of being a loyal family man who sacrifices himself and his own sense of well-being to kind of toil for his family and provide for them.”

FX’s A Christmas Carol hails from Steven Knight and despite the time period, is more contemporary.

“It’s not a kind of stuffy, Dickensian world in the way that maybe we’ve seen some times before,” Alwyn said. “It’s more colloquial and modern and people swear and there are themes in there that haven’t been explored before. They’re a lot darker, it feels a lot more human in that way I think.”

As a proper British boy, Alwyn said he has a fondness for Christmas. “Yeah, I love Christmas. It’s great. I’m a big fan of it. I’m not very good at Christmas shopping and getting that done early, that normally comes down to the last week, but it’s great. I see family I haven’t seen in a while, eat far too much food,” he said.

A Christmas Carol premieres in December 2019 on FX.

The Unstoppable Rise of Mr Joe Alwyn

Why you will be seeing a lot more of the British actor in the near future

Fame is a funny thing, able to operate on different frequencies at once. Mr Joe Alwyn is a case in point. On the one hand, the 27-year-old British actor is still in the rising firmament – he’s not causing riots on the Tube quite yet. On the other, he is living through something exceptional, the subject of a million clicks. Who is this actor whose very first film was not only directed by Mr Ang Lee, but featured him in the leading role? Who has already modelled a campaign for Prada? And who has for the best of two years been the other half of Ms Taylor Swift? Not bad for someone who, by his own admission, “only left school about three years ago”. The star is born, but we blinked and missed the conception.

This winter you can see Mr Alwyn in the cinema three times, which goes some way to reminding us what a very good actor he is. In the gay conversion drama Boy Erased, in the feminist retelling of Mary Queen Of Scots and in the wacky period intrigues of The Favourite, he capitalises on that first incredible leap forward, when Mr Lee cast him, straight out of drama school, in 2015’s Billy Lynn’s Halftime Walk. Back then, he had sent in a tape, was shipped out to New York for a weekend and ended up staying two weeks (the film’s producer had to go out to buy him new underwear). By the end of it, he was a Hollywood lead.

“I really do owe everything to the first film that I got, and the breaks that came with that. I’m very aware that I’m very lucky that I’ve had these opportunities, and quickly,” says Mr Alwyn, who is polite, personable and determinedly down-to-earth, in a well-bred north London way. But here’s the thing: although he claims to be surprised, he actually doesn’t sound it. The key to his rise is probably his startling self-possession. The idea, for instance, that he might be on a rollercoaster ride is always kept to a determined minimum. “You just do the things you’ve always done,” he says with a shrug. Sitting in the restaurant of a smart London hotel, getting ready to do a junket, he looks utterly suited to the job at hand, although there is a sense of illusion to it. “I don’t own any of these clothes,” he laughs cheerfully, of his chic sandy-coloured jacket or his sweater with “interesting” holes. Then again, that in itself is indicative – he’s clearly most at ease in a role.

The films, then. In one he is a courtier, in another he’s a troubled soul, and in the third he’s a courtier with a troubled soul. It’s the latter which is the most straightforward for him. In Mary Queen Of Scots, Mr Alwyn plays Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, the favourite of Queen Mary’s great rival, Queen Elizabeth I. Under Ms Josie Rourke’s direction, Mr Alwyn has the conventional role, a paragon of romantic love and loyalty. It could have been different: there’s a persistent rumour that the Earl pushed his wife down the stairs. In Ms Rourke’s telling, though, he’s the royal court’s sole decent bloke. “There’s definitely a darkness that could be there as well,” admits Mr Alwyn, and though he is only deeply complimentary about the project, you soon sense that he wouldn’t be averse to a little action on a staircase.

Boy Erased is an adaptation of the memoir of Mr Garrard Conley, relaying his experiences of gay conversion therapy in the Deep South this century, a deeply troubling system that continues even today. “It’s just crazy,” says Mr Alwyn. “The fact that those places still exist in some 36 states, and that [US Vice President] Mike Pence is on record speaking in favour of them, is just absolutely mad.” Mr Alwyn’s character, Henry, seems a pretty clear product of repression and homophobia; it leads him to do something terrible. “He’s kind of shiny on the outside, the all-American good guy, and then obviously kind of deeply cracked underneath. I like those contrasts.”

All of which leads us to The Favourite. In Mr Yorgos Lanthimos’ hands, the private life of Queen Anne, who died in 1714, becomes a darkly funny love triangle filled with sadism, lesbianism and a menagerie of pet rabbits. Ms Olivia Colman, as Queen Anne, and Ms Rachel Weisz and Ms Emma Stone have the peach parts, but Mr Alwyn has nearly as much fun as Baron Masham, a courtier in love with Ms Stone. Or, as Mr Alwyn puts it, an “airhead”.

Rehearsals didn’t involve analyses of Stuart history or their characters’ motivation, but rolling around the floor, screaming, singing, switching parts and tying their bodies together instead. “It was fun,” says Mr Alwyn matter-of-factly. And the results are no less surprising. What looks set to be a conventional ballroom scene turns into a weird avant-garde bump’n’grind; Mr Alwyn even seems to break-dance.

“The thing I like about it is that Yorgos has completely thrown out the textbook on what a period drama is,” says Mr Alwyn. “Who knows what it was like back then? It probably wasn’t as refined as we think it is, or as it’s often performed. It can be quite tidy… the edges can be sanded off a bit.”

What about his edges, though? Scratch as you can, Mr Alwyn presents a resolutely smooth exterior. This seems part temperament, part design. The son of a documentary filmmaker father and a psychotherapist mother, he might seem well-equipped for a job all about studying and empathising with other people. He knows this, but only because everyone has started telling him so. “I’m not good at answering these questions because I’ve never really thought about them,” he offers apologetically. He struggles to think what each parent gave him (he has a brother, too), eventually settling on his height (he’s a lithe 6ft 1in) and slight sarcasm from his dad; he says he doesn’t have anything “really mad and crazy in terms of hobbies”. Well, do you like football? “Football? Yeah. Am I allowed to say those kinds of things?”

Suffice to say that Mr Alwyn is aggressively, determinedly normal. He doesn’t consider himself famous, the attention hasn’t been overwhelming (“maybe bits and pieces at a time – it’s been a readjustment”) and he doesn’t even think he’s had to fight for his privacy, even what with dating you-know-who.

“I don’t think more than anyone else. I don’t think anyone you meet on the streets would just spill their guts out to you, therefore why should I? And then that is defined as being ‘strangely private’. Fine. But I don’t think it is. I think it’s normal.”

The next normal thing in his life is a drama about the slave-turned-abolitionist heroine Ms Harriet Tubman, an African-American saint to many. Is it true he’s playing a slave owner? “I am. I’m not playing Harriet, not this time,” he says wryly. To be clear, Mr Alwyn’s small CV already includes a Nazi, a slave owner, a rapist and an airhead. He laughs when they’re all lined up. “I mean, I don’t feel like they’re just bad, bad people,” he volunteers. “And I do think it’s interesting to look at the bigger picture of why people are the way they are.” With just a couple of honourable exceptions, of course.
