Cast & Crew In Other Projects

Recommended Posts


Is it okay if I start a thread to discuss her work?  I've only seen her in Jane Eyre and Luthor and I wondered if the Canadians and UK residents had a chance to see her in other things that never aired here.

Rather than having separate threads for each actor, I just merged them into one cast and crew thread. Feel free to discuss all things concerning the actors' other projects.

That picture of Ruth Wilson as a blond ...not good.  She and Benedict Cumberbatch should never, ever, ever be blondes.  Blonde doesn't suit all people.

I just saw Ruth Wilson in, "Saving Mr. Banks," and although she only had a few lines, she was perfect for the part because she can express so much with her face alone.

I saw the play tonight. Ruth Wilson was spectacular. She is a fine actress and no trace of Alison in her character. Gyllenhaal was also wonderful.

There's a The Wire marathon on, and Dominic West looks better than I remember. Still not sex on legs (that's reserved for Idris Elba), but better than I remember.

I'd also forgotten that the actor who plays Bruce on The Affair is played by the same one who played Rawls on The Wire.

Oh, hell yes to Idris Elba ... Maybe his former co-stars Dominic West and Ruth Wilson can talk him into coming on The Affair and playing Helen's prior flirtation, Leon. Would love to see Helen get a chance to trade Noah in on a sexier model. Edited by IMCranky

I'm watching a pivotal scene between West and John Doman (who plays Bruce) in The Wire, and it's interesting to contrast it with the one where Bruce admits he thinks about his former student/lover "every fucking day." In both, Doman's character is not a fan of West's (Det. Rawls loathes Jimmy McNulty) but gives grudging respect.

Must admit I am not a huge Ruth Wilson fan.  Her demeanor, that semi-constant sullen bereftness....sorry can't put it in words....just turns me off.   Am watching old episodes of Luther.  She's exactly the same in that show.  At least to me she is.

 

I just find her lacking in the full dimension of emotions that makes some actors truly great.  She's good at grief, at sullen, at 'mysterious', seductive, at conniving, but lacks spontenaity or joy or silliness.  Can't help but think of Megan Hilty as Ivy Lynn in Smash.  She did it all. Anyway, Wilson is fine.  Good.  But, IMHO, far from great.  Maybe I need to see her in more......

"Similarly, the Alison character became a totally different person than what Treem originally envisioned."

“Ruth is really, really strong,” Treem explains. “And Alison was written to be quite weak, actually. In the beginning, she is just in grief and incredibly passive and disassociated from her own life. And Ruth is the opposite of that. She is incredibly active and very aggressive even sometimes. That was helpful because then we got to kind of watch this character claim her power. To me, what is most exciting about Alison’s journey is that scene with Cole where he says, ‘Come on, let’s make this work.’ And she says, ‘I don’t want to anymore. It’s not worth it to me.’ To me, that was an act of real strength. It was exciting to get her character to a point where it could dovetail with the essence of Ruth.

Re The Wire, I've been reading that they were remastering the whole series for HD, and that now seems to have happened. All five seasons are available in HD on iTunes (and hence Apple TV) as of when I looked a couple days ago. Not sure if the marathon mentioned by Empress consisted of the new HD versions.

I think I first saw Ruth Wilson in Small Island, a miniseries on, I think, PBS. I watched it because I had loved the book, and she was great in it.

Google "Constellations Ruth Wilson"

+ a lot more

"There's this hypothesis in theoretical physics that I used to love back at school, about time travel. About what would happen if you could travel back in time and make a different choice in your past, how that would affect your life in the future. So the theory goes that, um, your true life, your first life, continues as is, unchanged, but at the moment of decision, a new life splits off along a tangent into a parallel universe. So you could, in a way... live both lives. "

      Bought my tix back in December and will be seeing this Valentine's Day. I'm excited to see both him and Tessa Thompson. (Also just read that he does full frontal apparently--that was a bit surprising. May have to warn my husband. Lol.)

Wonder what are the odds that His Dark Materials, coming later this year on HBO, will be better than The Affair.

First look at Joshua Jackson as "Bill Richardson"....no Cole Lockhart beard here. 😂

Ruth Wilson with a big role in His Dark Materials, which premiered on HBO Monday.

Her character is nothing like Alison.

Just watched His Dark Materials Episode 1.  Ruth Wilson was damn good in it.

Anna Paquin is a fixer for a London PR company whose clientele includes stars.  She’s a fixer when they get into trouble.

First season of 6 episodes available on Showtime on demand.  Apparently a second season coming as well.
