The Man Who Married Himself – EMILIA FOX INTERVIEW

Emilia Fox (Sarah)

How would you describe your character?

I play Sarah, who carries a bit of a torch for Oliver. She is a very bookish girl and rather desperate I think when he chooses to marry himself. He’s then rather relieved when he asks her over to relieve his boredom of being married to himself.

How would you describe Richard’s character Oliver?

Fox: Well he’s quite simply a man who is in love with himself. Richard plays him brilliantly, his comic timing, and just everything, the costume, the look and the moustache is just fantastic.

What appealed to you about appearing in The Man Who Married Himself?

Fox: I read the script and it has a charm that makes you fall in love with Oliver even though he’s in love with himself and doesn’t need anybody else to fall in love with him. And it’s a very witty, clever idea, so I was thrilled to be a part of it.

Do you feel the film has an underlying message?

Fox: I suppose there is a message in what Oliver says about examining whether you yourself would be a good spouse for anyone else. So self examination I suppose is the message

How was the experience of working with director Garrick Hamm?

Fox: He’s brilliant; he’s just got such a great vision, and you know is very clear about what he wants, especially with a short film there isn’t 90 minutes to sort of take your time developing what someone should look like or how they should sound, Garry is very clear and knows exactly what he wants. I think it’s harder to get that balance of comedy but also get across the message of the film.

Could you marry yourself?

Fox: No. God, it’s hard enough to live with oneself, let alone marry and commit to oneself. I could happily divorce myself.
