A very interesting Q&A with Martin Freeman has been published in the weekend version of The Guardian. You can read it here or click below for an excerpt.Continue reading New Q&A for The Guardian
As part of the Black Panther press tour, in this new interview Martin talks about his concerns over the privacy of his kids:
Last night, for instance, my kids came to the Black Panther premiere,” he says. “And it was a big deal for me and Amanda, to work out how we get them in and experience some of the excitement of it without having to pose for pictures with them. Look, there are worse things in the world. But it’s a pain in the arse and I don’t like it.
His new family dinamics now that he’s some sort of a single parent:
it’s lovely to be part of a family, of course it is. It’s lovely. But then the parents . . .” He trails off, regroups and adds: “We have a fine old time, me and my kids, and I know they do with Amanda. And fortunately, me and Amanda get on like a house on fire. We’re very close.
His future projects:
There’s a comedy series that he’s developing for TV called “Breeders” (“I can’t say any more than that!”), a documentary on 2 Tone Records and possibly another Marvel movie. Which can only mean one thing. “I’m successful,” he says, grinning, tongue only slightly in cheek. “I’m not saying that I deserve it. Or that I am any good at it. But you would have to acknowledge that I am successful.”
And his choices for a perfect weekend:
Pub or red carpet?
Pub. And I don’t even like the pub
Suit or tracksuit?
Street food or Michelin-starred meal?
Neither, but street food is more likely
Team sports or go for a run?
Again, neither. But team sports
Wine or water?
I’m Catholic. I can do both at the same time.
How many unread emails in your inbox?
I couldn’t get through the weekend without . . .
As part of the Black Panther press tour, Martin was a guest at the Conan O’Brien show on TBS last night. Here are two videos of Martin’s brilliant participation:
Also remember to check out our twitter account and instagram for small videos before his appearance.
A new interview, this time by Collider has been published which offers great quotes by Martin, some new and some we’ve read before (and you can find in our site).
You can read it under the cut:
In this article from ComicBook Martin confirms he has a large role in the upcoming Black Panther movie:
“As far as I was concerned, that was the idea. I don’t think I’m getting killed for that,” Freeman shared with ComicBook.com about being teased in the MCU and finally getting to confirm his larger role in Black Panther. “Yeah, that was my understanding.”
He also discusses being able to talk about a job without saying too much, keeping secrets while promoting is not an easy job:
“While I’m talking now, I’m still not quite sure of what I can or I think I can, you know?” Freeman admitted. “It’s always nice to talk about a job, but at the same time pretty much every job every actor does now is like working for the real CIA. So, it comes with that package of, ‘What did I just say? Am I allowed to say that?’ So yeah, you’re always walking a tightrope between wanting to talk about this job you’re enjoying but also not messing it up and pissing the producers off.”
A 3 minutes interview was published by the folks at ExtraTV. This was filmed at an unknown location where they were filming the casino scenes. It’s funny and Martin talks about his action scenes and how much he likes working with director Ryan Coogler. It’s a great interview so we really recommend you to check it out!
There’s another interview, in this case with Lupita Nyong’o where you can see another question made to Martin regarding his character. Check out that interview here. There are some little bts also from the filming of the casino scene and you can see Martin being helped by T’Challa and also meeting Klaue there. The question the interviewer asked him was “How does your character fit in this whole universe?”, this is Martin’s response.
