I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Sofia Boutella who plays Gazelle in Kingsman: The Secret Service.

IMG_5466

Andrew: So, thank you for allowing me to speak to you today.

Sofia: Of course.

Andrew: Would you like to tell me a little bit about your background and how you started off?

Sofia: So, I started dancing when I was five and I kept doing this pretty much until three years ago. In the meantime, when I was 16, I started acting. It kind of happened spontaneously. Somebody told me, “Oh, there’s this audition. Come along.” And I joined and I happily booked, to my surprise. And I learned on the spot, they taught me, but I truly completely loved it so I went after that and took classes and did few little minor projects in Paris.

But, then I stopped again acting, or trying to act when I was about 18 because I wanted to focus and stay focused with dancing because I wanted to be doing that a bit more. And I did, and after when I was 24 I joined a theatre again. So I kind of, like, everything kind of mitch matched for, mixed together for a little while, but at some point I stopped completely acting to focus on dancing and at some point I stopped completely dancing, which was three years ago, to focus finally on acting.

Andrew: So, you say you started dancing at five. Was that something you always wanted to do?

Sofia: Yeah, well I was a bit pigeon-toed when I was young and I think it’s good to put your kid into something, a sport or a discipline or a music instrument. I think it’s … parents do that naturally to … but … and so I went and did ballet and I could have completely stopped if I didn’t like it, but I liked it so I kept going.

Andrew: Excellent. And, obviously you talked about acting. What was your first acting role that you did and felt, “This is what I want to do.”?

Sofia: I don’t know if it was a role that made me feel like, “This is what I want to do,” but I know that the first film that I did, I couldn’t identify where I danced from, the place I danced from, and I felt like I was acting from the same place so it was very familiar to me, but yet being something completely different, being more eloquent and articulated in different ways and I found it challenging and I wanted to learn more and I did, but just by being at a theatre, by working on plays, by doing stuff like that essentially.

Andrew: Okay. So, let’s talk a little bit about Kingsman. Your character Gazelle is the henchwoman to Richmond Valentine. How did you get involved in the film?

Sofia: I auditioned in L.A. When I stopped dancing, I did not work for two years, but, don’t get me wrong, I auditioned all the time but that was an audition that came, like, many within those, throughout the two years. And, I, it went well, like it did sometimes, but I know, I knew at that point, I was a bit more detached, I knew you can do well, it’s not personal, move on. So I did okay, I did the audition and it went really well. My agent called me probably an hour after and said, “Casting call back. They’re really happy.” I said, “Great. I did my job. Happy.” I went home. Next day, woke up to, “You’re flying this afternoon to London to meet Matthew Vaughn and you have to read with him,” and I was like, “Whoa. That’s a new one.” And then I stayed.

Andrew: What sort of research did you do to get into character for Gazelle?

Sofia: I, well the research that I’ve done … Matthew gave me ‘femme fatale’ as something to stick to and I kind of looked at strong women in movies, or strong … I got inspired myself by strong women that I have around me. I don’t know anybody like Gazelle whatsoever. So we had to build that character. I think also working with the costume designer and the stunt team gave me the character more than going and fetching for it in a movie or as a reference or a personal reference. We, I’m lucky to have had a long time to develop this and so being in the room and doing all this tae-kwon-do, learning to play Gazelle kind of, like, really, I embodied the character because, and then I knew she’s tough, obviously, because she can fight like that and then seeing what we are doing with the costumes. She’s very feminine and, I mean I’m not wearing leather, but so that also gave me something else that I’ve never seen anywhere. It was like, “OK, I have to, it has to come from within.”

Andrew: And what sort of training did you have to do, because it’s quite an active part.

Sofia: Yeah, I did, like, a lot of fighting. I did a lot of boxing, some martial arts. But essentially, after, we used guns. I trained that as well. But you just want to use the blades, you know essentially, so and that’s what tae-kwon-do would essentially showcase.

Andrew: And what was it like working with Samuel L. Jackson?

Sofia: It was fantastic. He’s brilliant. And I truly, truly love him. He’s a fantastic man and a fantastic actor. And he’s great, truly. He was really here for me, he kind of like … he was like a father figure on set.

Andrew: So, you’ve got a new movie coming out here in May, Monsters: Dark Continent. Do you want to tell us about the film and also your role in the film?

Sofia: Yeah, I play Ara and, I don’t want to spoil the movie, you know what I mean. But you’ve seen the first one so there is that the aliens are the recurring character essentially. But my character arrives in the movie, I think, as a breather to unite a bit what’s … developing fighting and I think my character kind of, like, sets this and arrives at this arc, at the arc of the lead character, of his understanding of why he’s here and I think it’s … but you’ll see, it’s a bit dreamy, it’s a bit … I mean, I think the character is great, but, you’ll see, it’s very small. My character is very small in the movie.

Andrew: Well, hopefully, the next film will be bigger part for you. What else have you got coming up?

Sofia: I have a movie called Jet Trash which will come out in a few months. I don’t know exactly the date, a very independent, small-budget film. And another one called Tiger Raid, same, very independent, small-budget film with Brian Gleeson and Damien Maloney. And, I’m going to start shooting again in June, but I can’t talk about this yet.

Andrew: Good. What would be your ideal role? If you could have any role you wanted.

Sofia: I don’t know. I love creative characters, characters where I can … essentially, I would love at some point to just be a person in the film that don’t utilize any physicality. No dancing, or not even, no ethnicity, like I would love to just be someone for a story and the sake of relationship in the film and not … but that’s a challenge for me, which is great. I mean, I love what I’m able to do and I completely embrace it, but I know essentially, I mean those three independent movies, I’m not dancing or fighting at all in them, so I feel proud of myself, you know what I mean, because I’m not using my old tricks. I’m using essentially something that’s purer to the acting.

Something like Edward Scissorhands, would be, I would love to go and fetch a character far, far, completely created from scratch, that’s completely out of this planet. And I would love also to play a character, like, Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice, like very heartfelt and true to the history and I would love to play, I don’t know, I would love to do comedy. I mean, that’s why people ask me, “So what do you want to do?” It’s difficult in my position to tell people what I want to do at this stage because I haven’t done enough to be, like, “I’ve done this and this. Now I want to do that.” At this point, I think I’m up for anything. I’m, I think, you don’t get better at acting without acting so being on board with anything is a great chance and opportunity.

Andrew: Are you surprised at how popular the film was?

Sofia: Well, you know I trust Matthew completely and after I say the movie, I knew, I mean, people are going to love the film. And I think the word of mouth, kind of, did really well for the film because everybody that went to see the film couldn’t stop bragging about it. Literally, my friend come to see me, and he’s like, “Did you hear what he said?” We were at the supermarket and somebody was talking about Kingsman. Like, literally, people would, you hear random people talking about it, like whispering, if you’re out at a restaurant or something.

So, I think it has a huge impact, and I think people wanted a movie like that to come out, that’s highly entertaining, in terms of the action, that is cleverly written, that’s extremely funny, and that you can relate to. And all of a sudden it throws you in a completely different, imaginary sort of world where all these fights are completely over the top. It’s so fun to watch, you know. And I think people wanted that sort of film, that’s not all just action and too serious, or all just funny, but that has all these qualities. It’s really refreshing. And also Matthew is really clever, he doesn’t take, he takes his audience very seriously and considers them and does never, never, ever spoonfeed them. And I think people, in the end, ultimately, they truly appreciate that.

Andrew: And has it made you more recognizable in the street? Do more people come up to you because of Kingsman?

Sofia: Yeah, of course. I reading way more scripts and I’m auditioning more. Actually, now, I’m putting more pressure on myself when I’m auditioning because I know people have seen me in Kingsman and they probably are thinking, you know, “What can she do? How good is she? Is she reading, or something?” Whatever they say, but I mean I work extra, extra hard.

Andrew: In your own words, why should people watch Kingsman, if they haven’t seen it?

Sofia: Because they should.

Andrew: That’s fair.

Sofia: No, because they’ll have the time of their life. I mean I just think it’s so much fun and you come out of it very enthusiastic, I think.

Andrew: Excellent. Thank you very much for your time.

Sofia: Thank you. You’re welcome.

To celebrate the release of A Most Violent Year on DVD and Blu-ray, we are giving away three copies on Blu-ray.

MVY

The ethics of an honest man collide with the brutal violence of 1980s New York as A Most Violent Year, JC Chandor’s instant classic that was cruelly overlooked during the 2015 awards season.

At a time when New York City is experiencing a spike in criminal activity, small businessman Abel Morales (Oscar IsaacInside Llewyn Davis, soon to be seen in the Star Wars and X-Men franchises) fights to make himself a living, support his wife Anna (Jessica ChastainInterstellar, Zero Dark Thirty) and protect his interests. Always looking for a way to expand his business, Abel nevertheless strives to keep things honest and to do things by the book. However, when he becomes the target of opportunistic thieves, he takes matters into his own hands to track down those responsible. But, in doing so, he also attracts the attention of the Assistant District Attorney (David Oyelowo – Selma, Interstellar) who takes an unwelcome interest in Abel’s business practices…

Directed by America’s latest visionary, JC Chandor (All Is Lost, Margin Call), A Most Violent Year echoes classic American crime thrillers like The Godfather and the best of Sidney ‘Serpico’ Lumet’s output, at the same time fostering immediate respect as an independent drama of its own significant merit.

With support from Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle) and Albert Brooks (Drive), A Most Violent Year is the Great American Crime Drama reimagined – presenting a dark time in New York history through the eyes of a man whose best intentions compete with his rawest instinct to survive.

To celebrate the release of Silicon Valley The Complete First Series on Blu-ray and DVD, we are giving three lucky winners the chance to win it on Blu-ray.

SV

The socially challenged underdogs of the lucrative world of tech start-ups are finally uncovered in the painfully funny SILICON VALLEY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES released on Blu-ray and DVD from the 23rd March 2015, courtesy of HBO.

From the offbeat mind of Mike Judge (Office Space, Idiocracy), this critically-acclaimed HBO comedy takes viewers inside the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley. Inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the 80’s, the show follows the trials and tribulations of awkward computer programmer Richard (Thomas Middleditch – The Wolf of Wall Street), who lives in a “Hacker Hostel” along with his friends Big Head (Josh Brener The Big Bang Theory), Gilfoyle (Martin Starr – This Is The End), and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani Sex Tape).

Under the watchful eye of Erlich (T.J. Miller Transformers: Age of Extinction), a dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free (as long as he gets a 10% stake in their projects), the friends struggle to break into the elusive and lucrative market. Richard is stuck in a part-time job at tech company Hooli, and his obscure website, Pied Piper, is going nowhere fast. But when a colleague realises just how valuable the site’s compression algorithm is, Richard finds himself caught in the middle of an extreme bidding war between Hooli founder Gavin Belson (Matt Ross American Horror Story) and independent billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory (Christopher Evan Welch The Master).

Combining brilliant observational comedy with a fantastic cast and razor-sharp dialogue, SILICON VALLEY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES taps into the zeitgeist in a completely unique way and shows, in the funniest way possible, how often the people most qualified to succeed are really the least capable of handling success.

To celebrate the release of THE IMITATION GAME on Blu-ray, DVD and digital, we are giving three lucky winners the chance to win it on Blu-ray.

One of the cinematic events of 2014 becomes the first essential home entertainment release of 2015 as THE IMITATION GAME – beloved by critics and audiences alike – arrives on Blu-ray™, DVD and digital platforms on 9th March 2015, courtesy of STUDIOCANAL.

Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, THE IMITATION GAME portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers, endorsed by Churchill himself, at Britain’s top-secret Government Code & Cypher School at Bletchley Park during the darkest days of World War II. The film spans the key periods of Turing’s life, from his unhappy teenage years at boarding school and the triumph of his secret wartime work on the revolutionary electro-mechanical ‘Bombe’, which was capable of breaking 3,000 Enigma-generated naval codes a day, to the tragedy of his post-war decline following his conviction for a now outdated criminal offence.  A complicated and troubled man, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, Turing may have been the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on…

Starring Academy, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness, TV’s Sherlock) as Turing, Academy, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Keira Knightley (Begin Again, Atonement) as his confidante and equal, Joan Clarke, and featuring supporting turns from Matthew Goode (Stoker, Watchmen), Mark Strong (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy, Welcome To The Punch), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall, TV’s Penny Dreadful) and Charles Dance (TV’s Game Of Thrones, Gosford Park), THE IMITATION GAME is at once a searing piece of British drama, a brilliantly taut thriller and a posthumous honour to arguably one of Britain’s most important, most brilliant men.

From creator and writer Peter Moffat (Silk, Criminal Justice), series 2 features a returning stellar cast alongside the addition of much-loved British talent including: John Simm (Life On Mars, Doctor Who) as John Middleton, a Peak District alcoholic farmer; Maxine Peake (Silk, Shameless) as John’s wife, Grace Middleton; Julian Sands (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Killing Fields) as political sponsor, Lord Kilmartin; Juliet Stevenson (White Heat, Truly Madly Deeply) as Clem Allingham of the Allingham estate; Nico Mirallegro (Upstairs Downstairs, My Mad Fat Diary) as the eldest Middleton son, Joe Middleton; Juliet Aubrey (The White Queen, The Constant Gardener) as family planning teacher, Joy Dangerfield; Ben Batt (Shameless, Scott & Bailey) as teenage bully, Alf Rutter; and making their acting debuts Bill Jones, Tom Varey, Alfie Stewart (Sadie J, Not Fade Away) and David Ryall (Trollied, Outnumbered) all star as central character, Bert Middleton.

It’s 1923. The Great War is over but what kind of England has won? Now in a world of boom and bust, motor cars and the Charleston, the twenties bring a blast of energy and freedom to the village; dance halls and jazz music are having their influence on the villager’s lives. As an election year divides and inspires, we will find the power of the woman’s vote has been sorely undervalued. That is until now, as the outside world continues to break down barriers, bringing with it big dramas and change.
