Audrey L’Ebrellec, a young French actress who was playing the Queen of Scots in period drama TV series Elizabeth I also prepared an interesting role as Corinne in a new film about two people who just got dumped on New Year’s Eve from a different person each. But first, we wanted to know more about her role as Mary, Queen of Scots.
How does it feel to have a role as Mary, Queen of Scots in Elizabeth I TV series?
I was so happy when I received the news that I would be playing Mary Queen of Scots. She is an important historic character and I was honored to play her.
Elizabeth I was also nominated and been shortlisted for best drama category at the National TV Awards. Your thoughts on the news?
I was so delighted when I heard the news. I am so proud to have been part of this series because everybody did an amazing job on it and the result is absolutely great. All the cast and creatives have been really happy about the news.
Can you tell us about your other recent projects and accomplishments?
I played in a one-woman show at the Edinburgh festival this year, which was a very challenging and wonderful experience. The play was called “Evocation” and sets in 1920. It follows the journey of a young traumatised girl through poetry, straight theatre, and puppetry. I will play the show again in London at the Bridewell Theatre in February 2018, and I am really looking forward to it. Then beginning of the year, I should be filming the pilot for a new series called “The Catch”.
Midnight on the Borough is another interesting film you are involved in. Who would you recommend to see this film and why?
“Midnight on the Borough” is a romantic comedy about two strangers meeting in London on NYE after being dumped and deciding to make the most of the evening together. It’s a romantic comedy with some dark twists exploring themes as loneliness, a relationship between men and women, the impact of your professional life over your privacy. So everyone with a taste for romantic comedies and who loves London would enjoy it.
Can you introduce us the role you are playing in the movie and how does this role relate to you, if so?
I play Corinne is a French photographer, a bit neurotic and workaholic.Because of her work, she spends her life traveling and so finds herself enable to be in a stable relationship. She wants to appear as this strong and independent woman but in fact, she is quite vulnerable and always missing opportunities to be happy.
Some aspects of Corinne’s personality are quite close to mine, and then her search for happiness is something really touching that I can absolutely relate to, and I think everybody else can too. The desire to be happy, all the obstacles we create on our own because we are scared to finally be happy. Corinne’s journey in the film is really beautiful and I can’t wait to share it with the audience.
What are your upcoming projects you are looking forward to?
Absolutely looking forward to starting working on “Midnight on the Borough” and “The Catch”, and as well on a personal project I’m working on with another actor, Yusuf Bhaimia. We are working on developing a miniseries about an organisation of assassins in London. We are currently writing the first episode and looking in discussion with a production team. And we hope starting filming beginning 2018.
