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.

‘Harriet’ is out now

HARRIET PREMIERE AT BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL

Joe has a new project! Joe will star alongside Shailene Woodley, Felicity Jones, and Callum Turner in the film adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ hit novel Last Letter from Your Lover. The film is being directed by Augustine Frizzell and will begin shooting Monday, October 14th, in Mallorca, Spain. It hasn’t been confirmed yet what Joe’s role will be, but rumours suggest he will be playing Laurence Stirling, the husband of Jennifer Stirling (Shailene Woodley). This is the premise of the story:

The story follows Ellie (Jones), a young journalist in contemporary London who uncovers a series of love letters that tell the story of an intensely romantic but star-crossed affair in the 1960s between Jennifer Stirling (Woodley) and Anthony O’Hare (Turner). As Ellie is drawn into the story, she becomes obsessed with discovering the lovers’ identities and finding out how their love story ends.

Joe has a new project, The Souvenir Part II, a sequel to the critically acclaimed film The Souvenir (2019). It is directed by Joanna Hogg, who Joe has previously mentioned as a director he’d love to work with. The film stars Tilda Swinton, Honor Swinton Bryne, and Charlie Heaton. The Souvenir follows “a young film student in the early 80s who becomes romantically involved with a complicated and untrustworthy man.” The Souvenir Part II will be “a continuation of the story around privileged student Julie (Byrne), and the aftermath of her destructive relationship.” source No details have yet been given regarding Joe’s role, however, Joe was photographed on set with Tilda Swindon on July 3.

Filming wrapped a few weeks ago with the release set for either 2020 or 2021.

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.
