‘You are treading on dangerous ground by asking personal questions’ – the Boba Fett interview

Posted in INTERVIEWS with tags , , , , on May 19, 2011 by Ross McD

Boba Fett is the most feared and revered bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe. He is the son of Jango Fett – the man who was cloned to create the Grand Army of the Republic, subsequently the Imperial Stormtroopers – and famously captured the elusive Han Solo. Since the man who played him, Jeremy Bulloch, is undoubtedly sick of the same ‘So how crazy are Star Wars fans?’ questions, he agreed to don the Mandalorian mantle and get into character to face Ross McD’s interrogation… Continue reading

‘I was born in the wrong decade’ – the Mandy Moore interview

Posted in INTERVIEWS with tags , , , on January 24, 2011 by Ross McG

From pop princess to Disney princess, Mandy Moore has come a long way. At just 26, her albums have sold millions and she has starred in a whole host of movies. These have varied from the syrupy (A Walk To Remember) and the downright forgettable (Licence To Wed) to the completely inspired (Saved!). She has backed those up with TV roles in the likes of Entourage, Scrubs, Grey’s Anatomy and The Simpsons. She is married to singer Ryan Adams. In her latest film, Disney’s rather fun 50th animated feature, Tangled, she voices Rapunzel. She spoke to Ross McG about her teen idol roots, why she has had enough of rom-coms, her desire to work for Quentin Tarantino and how she was never going to end up like Britney Spears.

Roger Michell doesn’t like the limelight. He may not be the most high-profile of directors, but he’s the man behind Notting Hill, Enduring Love, Changing Lanes and Venus. His new movie, Morning Glory, sees Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton squabbling on daytime TV. In an interview with Ross McG, he spoke about Ford’s grumpiness, what it’s like chasing down the elusive Bill Murray for a role and why he turned down 007.
