AndrewGower_IRI_01

Online Indie magazine “The Italian Rêve” published an interview with Andrew Gower today in which they talked about his motivations for being an actor as well as his recent work on Outlander, Black Mirror and Carnival Row.

We got some more information on Ezra Spurnrose, Andrew’s character in Carnival Row, and Andrew confirms he will be a series regular.

He also gave us an update on Humpty Dumpty, the documentary about Merseybeats singer Tommy Quickly that he is developing with fellow Liverpudlian actor Stephen Walters.

We filmed a lot of it but it has been delayed and we are hoping to have something to show people by the end of this year.

Finally re-united, Andrew Gower and Stephen Walters posted this video on Twitter to thank their fans with their very own version of the popular Beatles song “Don’t let me down” for the continued support of their “passion project” Humpty Dumpty on Kickstarter. The campaign reached an amazing £15,000 recently.

The Kickstarter page will remain open until 8 July 2017 and please keep tweeting and re-tweeting the link! More support, financially and by sharing the link on Social Media will be a “huge help” to Andrew and Stephen and their micro-budget film!

Andrew Gower On Playing Winston Smith In 1984

Here’s another interview with Andrew Gower about playing Winston Smith in 1984 and what tempted him to take on the part. Being Human and Outlander (and their loyal fanbases) get a notable mention, too.

You’ve done some beloved dramas, like Being Human and Outlander. What’s the fan response been like?

Yes, both Being Human and Outlander are known for their loyal fanbases. The beauty of both of those jobs was that the characters were very removed from me. So I’ve been lucky to get off scot-free, without any strange encounters. The wigs, blood and strange onscreen faces/voices – they haven’t found their way into my day-to-day life. Yet.

1984’s Andrew Gower on Coping with Rats, Big Brother & on Getting His Teeth Into Being Human

83153-9

Theatre.com talked to Andrew Gower about playing the lead in 1984 and his time as Cutler on Being Human.

You graduated from drama school [the Oxford School of Drama] six years ago but are only now making your West End debut.
Yeah, which is funny because when I left drama school, I always envisaged that my career would be on stage; I never saw it going down the route of TV and film, so for this to be only my third theater job and in something so incredible and illustrious is really amazing.

Graham_McTavish_Andrew_Gower_and_Sam_Heughan_in.original

Access Hollywood released an interview with Graham McTavish (Dougal McKenzie) and Andrew Gower (Bonnie Prince Charlie) about Outlander episode 2×10 “Prestonpans”.

Graham McTavish was full of praise for his co-star’s acting:

“One of the things that I loved about what Andrew did with the part was how he physically created the Prince,” Graham said, when we asked him about working with the Season 2 “Outlander” actor. […]
“[Andrew] made some really great [acting] choices with that.”
The article also mentions Andrew’s ongoing rehearsals for 1984 in London’s West End.

Access Hollywood conducted a Q&A with Andrew about his role as Prince Charles Edward Stuart on Starz’ hit TV show Outlander.

Andrew (who Sam Heughan has praised, calling him “magnificent in the role”) hit the books before slipping on the salmon-colored silk coat of his “Outlander” character, diving deeply into the details, all the way down to the accent. In a new interview, he told Access Hollywood more about his preparation for the role, and offered insight into his character’s tearful reaction after the loss of the cargo in Saturday night’s episode.

New Showreel

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 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.

Mark Gatiss interview

Mark Gatiss has been interviewed by EW.com about the finale of Being Human season 4, “War Child”. It’s a great little interview, made all the better by the question about the trailer:

Can you explain why he’s rubbing Cutler’s face in the preview?
Because I wanted to. I said to Andrew [Gower], “I just got an idea. I should run my hand down your face and stick my finger into your mouth. Is that alright?” And he said, “Yeah, whatever you like.” So I did it. What I like about it is it’s so invasive. First of all, he has those filthy fingernails. I thought, he regards this man as less than the dirt on his shoes and he should just show it. It’s also slightly pervy. I enjoyed that.

You can watch said scene here:

Hmmmmm….
