EeB6397UcAAqdDN

Huge Congratulations to Team Carnival Row and three Emmy nominations:

  • Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes for Joanna Eatwell, Clare Vyse, Jennifer Lander and team
  • Outstanding Main Title Design for Lisa Bolan, Henry DeLeon, Mert Kizilay, Kaya Thomas, Yongsub Song, Alex Silver and team
  • Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for Nathan Barr

Sadly, Andrew Gower and none of the other submitted cast received a nomination but we think those three are more than deserved!

If you like Carnival Row‘s costume design, please follow Denise Haywood Costume, who was part of Joanna Eatwell’s team in season 1 and regularly shares fascinating close-ups and BTS pictures of the costumes.

Nathan Barr’s wonderful soundtrack is available at select digital stores!

The series is currently preparing to resume filming in Prague after production had to be suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic in mid-March.

According to Gold Derby, Amazon Prime have listed their submissions for their comedy, drama and limited series in the run for an Emmy Award. Among the submitted titles and names are Carnival Row (in the Drama Series category) and Andrew Gower as Supporting Actor.

Also put forward are Orlando Bloom (Actor), Cara Delevingne (Actress), Arty Froushan, David Gyasi, Jared Harris, Simon McBurney (Supporting Actor), Karla Crome, Tamzin Merchant and Indira Varma (Supporting Actress).

Of course, a submission is far from a nomination (or a win) but it’s an important first step and we are more than happy and proud to read Andrew’s name in the company of all these other distinguished talents.

Previously, Andrew had been submitted for an Emmy nomination in the same category in 2016 for his role as Bonnie Prince Charlie in the STARZ production Outlander.

Huge congratulations to Andrew and so well deserved! 👏👏👏

Damien Molony interviewed by Spotlight

cult_being_human_s04_e07_2

Damien Molony has been interviewed by Spotlight about his nomination for the prize in 2011 and his career since then. There are a couple of questions about Andrew Gower and their work together on Being Human:

Did Andrew Gower [2010 Spotlight Prize winner] try to give you any tips?

We didn’t actually shoot anything together until episode seven so we didn’t really talk about it that much. He used to give me encouragement and I would try and do the same because I think he is absolutely amazing, a brilliant actor. He goes into so much depth with his preparation. I learnt a lot from just watching him rather than him teaching me.

FORMER Great Sankey High School pupil Andrew Gower has been following in the footsteps of Dame Judi Dench, Robert Lindsay and Jim Broadbent after picking up the prestigious Spotlight Prize.

He said: “It was very exciting and unexpected. My mum was away and I couldn’t get hold of anyone so I was just sat on the tube grinning with a cheque in my hand and a bunch of flowers.”

Andrew Gower performs Me, As a Penguin

i-kVn6Jnd-Ocrop

The Spotlight Prize is awarded each year to the best UK drama school graduate. Each school nominates their best graduate student who have three minutes to perform live in front of an audience of showbiz professionals (actors, producers, agents, journalists, …) and a jury chooses the winner based on this performance. Past winners include Judy Dench and Jim Broadbent.

In 2010 Andrew was nominated by the Oxford School of Drama – rated one of the top 5 best acting schools in the world – and performed a monologue from the play Me, As a Penguin by English playwright Tom Wells showcasing his impeccable comedic timing.

(The play is about) about a young man from a small seaside town, who goes to stay with his sister and her husband in Hull to try and sample the Hull gay scene. It’s about what happens when you’re outside your comfort zone. Obviously there’s a penguin involved…

The main character Stitch has a bit of a relationship with someone who works in an aquarium and ends up rashly stealing a baby penguin in a moment of impulse. The theft takes place before the play starts, so the narrative is the fallout of that. Stitch is already openly gay, and I think his family is really supportive but the town where he’s from, Withernsea, is really rural and he wouldn’t be likely to meet anyone there.

“I had a good think last night. While I was projectile vomiting. And I decided, perhaps the gay scene of Hull isn’t for me. It’s the vodka, I think. Among other things. Honestly. I looked deep inside myself. And I just found: wool. I’m not a great one for nightclubs, not a party animal. Can’t imagine I ever will be. I don’t even like sex that much, to be honest. Rather have a good yoghurt. I think the best thing I can hope to do with my life is. Knitting.”
