Welcome, thank you and news

We have to admit that we were very nervous before launching the website. We’ve started planning it at the beginning of the year and it took us all this time to finally launch it. We wanted to make a website that fans like us would not just enjoy for all the Martin goodness but also can use as reference and a place for all those people who don’t have a tumblr/twitter/instagram account and just want updated Martin Freeman information.

We are overwhelmed with the reception we’ve received. It makes us really proud that it worked as smoothly as it did and that so many of you have started using it. But most importantly, we want to express our gratitude.

Thank you so much for the messages we’ve received from our Contact form and in our private social media accounts. Some of those messages included suggestions which are very interesting and we will most definitely apply them. Please keep sending them! Like any website that wants to make a difference the important thing is to listen to its users. So it’s very important for us to know what you think.

One of our many important aspects of Martin’s life is his Music which is why you can see it as a separate link on the many above. There you will find a list (which we are constantly updating) with songs that Martin has recommended, liked, danced to, etc. Some of the tracks can’t be found on Spotify so we’ve added a link to youtube and also because some countries don’t have Spotify so that provides another way to listen to music he likes. We’ve added new songs today so make sure if you have Spotify to follow our playlist: “Martin Freeman listening to…“.

Martin attends Ben Norris’ birthday party

Martin was spotted attending his cousin Ben Norris’ 50’s birthday party at a comedy club called Up The Creek in Greenwich on Sunday. He sang “Eton Rifles” with the band England Dreaming as he already did for his brother’s Jamie’s birthday.

We’ve added some photos by the photographer in charge Steve Best to our Gallery.

Labour of Love opening delayed due to actress withdrawal

Due to medical advice Sarah Lancashire who was set to star along Martin in Labour of Love is stepping down. She is going to be replaced by Tamsig Greig (known for Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, tv show Episodes, Friday Night Dinner, etc.).

This change of casting also means that there’s going to be a delay: the production now opens on 3 October, with previews from 27 September, and runs until 2 December.

Make sure you contact Delfont Mackintosh if you had tickets prior to September 27th.

Ghost Stories is screening first at London Film Festival

If you have been following the news, you probably know that on October 24 last year Ghost Stories began filming. A month later they wrapped filming and post-production began. Since then, there wasn’t any other news nor piece of information regarding this project.

However, today the London Film Festival lineup has been revealed and we are happy to inform that Ghost Stories is one of the films that are going to be premiering during the festival.

On BFI’s website we have the following page dedicated for Ghost Stories. There you will find the first image for this new film:

Let’s remember that Martin is going to be playing Mark Priddle and is one of the 3 unresolved cases of the Occult Andy Nyman’s (who stars and is one of the directors) character Phillip Goodman – an academic and professional sceptic that is out to debunk anything supernatural – comes across with after an encounter with a parapsychologist.

The film is directed by Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman and is a throwback to classic Brit horror stories from the 70s. It finally comes to the big screen after being on the stage some time ago and scaring more than one of the spectators. The producers are Claire Jones and Robin Gutch. The film is said to be 98 minutes long and is distributed by Lionsgate.

Are you in London in October? Then write down the following screening dates:

  • October 5, 18:00 Vue Leicester Square Cinema, Screen 7.
  • October 6, 15:30 Haymarket Cinema, Screen 1.
  • October 14, 20:45, Hackney Picturehouse, Screen 1.

Remembering Martin’s EMMY win

3 years ago (25 August 2014) Martin Freeman won an Emmy while he was sleeping. Remember this?

Two days later, he was interviewed for the BBC (over the phone) and he said about how he found out about it:

I got a text from my American agent and she said You’ve just won. I was Ah, very very nice. And then I went to sleep, and then woke up to find that Ben had won and Steven Moffat had won. And Fargo has also done really well, you know both shows I was in that had been nominated did really well so I was very pleased about that.
