This week, Hugh Laurie tells The New Zealand Herald why Roper is “vivid and powerful,” while Tom Hiddleston talks to The Telegraph about the challenges of playing a character who is hiding so much. Plus: Olivia Colman dishes on her character’s morality. Read on for more:
• Hugh Laurie tells The New Zealand Herald that his character, Roper, “on the page is so vivid and powerful that I felt from the moment I read it that I know this guy. I can just see him and hear him and I know how he moves.”
• Tom Hiddleston, interviewed by The Telegraph about the challenge of playing Pine, explains, “In every scene I had to hide sufficiently that Roper & Co. aren’t smelling a rat, but not hide so much that I’m hiding from the audience.”
• “Burr is a good egg. She’s very driven and very black-and-white. She has a very strong sense of right and wrong – that’s why she’s so infuriated by Roper,” Olivia Colman says of her The Night Manager character, according to New Zealand’s Stuff.
• David Farr speaks with RadioTimes about adapting The Night Manager with John le Carré himself, saying, “He is interested constantly in modernisation and change, keeping his own work fresh.”
• Express provides a guide to The Night Manager, which “boasts an impressive star-studded line-up including Olivia Colman, Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie.”
• Digital Spy tells interested viewers they can rent “Tom Hiddleston’s beautiful Devon cottage.”
