The very beautiful trailer for A Winter’s Tale was released last month. Lucy does not appear in the trailer, but the rest of the cast seem amazing in their roles and I am excited to watch the movie in February. Thank you to those that sent me the link and I apologize for taking so long to update.
Lucy did an interview with Youth Music Theatre in November. You can read the full interview at the source link.
Speaking to us all the way from Los Angeles, actress extraordinaire and former YMTer Lucy Griffiths tell us her YMT experience as well as what it was like working in the US of A!
Lucy starred in YMT’s 2004 production of Amy’s Wedding and has since gone on to appear in countless programmes! Not only was she Maid Marian in BBC’s Robin Hood and Nora in HBO’s True Blood, Lucy has also had roles in Sugar Rush, Collision, and Lewis. In 2009 Lucy made her West End debut in Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece Arcadia at the Duke of York’s and she can also be seen in upcoming film Last Summer – directed by Leonardo Guerra Seràgnoli.
What do you remember about your experience at YMT?
It was one of the best two weeks of my life. That particular audition was really enjoyable too. I went up with my friends and we just had fun! It was the first year of YMT so it felt really personal.
Do you think YMT helped you at all?
Yeah! At that time I knew I wanted to do acting as a job, but, because I didn’t go to drama school I think having an experience of performing that isn’t with a local community company but that’s also not an intense three-year drama school training is a nice segue. Continue…
Here is a new interview with Lucy regarding True Blood season 6 and Nora. Click the link to read the full article. Spoilers ahead.
Spoilers ahead, naturally. Fans were warned that at least one big character death was happening this season on True Blood, but it turns out that the body count just keeps getting higher. The latest death on the show was Eric’s vampire sister, Nora, who had been injected with Hepatitis V, and not even Billith’s blood could cure her. Her death served two functions: to let the audience know what kind of a fate awaits any other vampire who drinks the tainted True Blood, and to set Eric on a path of revenge. Lucy Griffiths, who played our latest dearly departed, chatted with Vulture about her gruesome death scene, vampire sibling rivalry, and what would have happened had Nora actually found Warlow.
Nora collapsing into all that blood and goo into Eric’s arms was one of the one most prolonged and gruesome deaths on the show in a while. How did you shoot it?
It was quite weird, because I had to have a tube next to my head and they had to pump all the blood through it, to make it look like I was melting, before they added the CGI. So I was covered in blood, covered head to toe, and it was so cold. It feels quite strange! The vein effects right before that were part transfers and makeup and postproduction.
How much of a warning did you get that this was coming, and what did you think of it when you read it?
I thought it was wicked. [Laughs.] At first, they said, “We think we’re going to do this,” and then they said they weren’t sure, and then they said they were. But the thing is, when you sign a contract to do any of these shows, unless you’re a lead character, someone that the show is really centered around, you always know that your character might leave. I’ve got no complaints. And I thought it had been written really well. It was clever, and I was looking forward to playing the scenes when I read them.
Was the table read sad?
It’s not real. [Laughs.] But yeah, I guess so. It gave an opportunity for Eric’s character to be a bit more openly vulnerable than he normally is, so he was very moved by that.
I finally caught up on True Blood and Lucy screen captures. Please read no further if you are not yet caught up with season 6. Lucy did a phenomenal job as Nora in episode 6. I was saddened by what happened and was not ready to see Nora go as I loved her character (though they ignored her earlier this season!). However, they gave her character a thoughtful ending and I enjoyed the flashback and the story of how Eric and Nora met (as a history fan, flashing back to London in 1665 was exciting for me). What did you all think of the last few episodes? Will you keep watching the show? Episode stills coming soon.
