Tomorrow, Friday 22nd September, Martin and Tamsin – the two stars of Labour of Love – will be on BBC Radio 2 tomorrow at The Chris Evans Breakfast Show which airs from 6:30 to 9:30, discussing the new play that is less than a week from opening the previews. You can listen to it live on BBC Radio 2 website. Or you can catch it later from the programme’s website (linked before). We will be publishing the clip as soon as posible after it’s available.
The play is closer each day. Michael Grandage Company – one of the companies behind Labour of Love – published some stories showing the signs already up at the Noël Coward Theatre. EXCITING.
Our kind visitor S told us about this 2005 photo shoot Martin did for a Marks & Spencer ad campaign called “My Autograph”. This photoshoot by photographer David Bailey included not just Martin but other actors like Bob Mortimer and Jimmy Carr. We’ve added a better quality version in our gallery so go check it out! He definitely needs to do more of these, what do you think? Let us know.
According to Yolanda Ramke, writer of Cargo, the tickets for the premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival are sold out!
If you’re in Adelaide and you’re interested, there are still some tickets left for the second screening and Q&A session on October 7th. You can buy them here.
Today WhatsOnStage – a leading online publication of all things theatre – published some exclusive photos of rehearsals for Labour of Love taken at Jerwood Studio. The photos were taken by Marc Brenner – who also took the photos for Martin’s Richard III. Even though they are not HQ, we’ve uploaded them to our gallery to share with all of you, click on the photo to view the rest.
Yesterday (Monday 18th) the people behind Startup announced that the first 3 episodes are available for owners of Amazon Fire tablets or Amazon Fire TV. Needless to say this is a preview before the long awaited season 2 that is set to premiere free on Crackle’s platform.
However, a very kind Martin fan (Amanda from 88thparallel.tumblr.com) has access to Amazon Fire TV and generously allowed us to share with you some screen captures of Martin’s scenes from these first episodes and they are already in our gallery which you can access from the link above or clicking any of the selected photos we are showing below.
A very kind contributor and visitor to our website told us about some photos of Martin and a fellow actor (Emma Kennedy) that they’ve found on the actress’ website. Even though they weren’t working, we managed to find them anyway and we’re uploading them. They are small but it shows a 2002 Martin working on stage in Soho Theatre for a festival called “Under 11’s”. Thank you, S!
