The London Evening Standard posted this article (mostly focusing on Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams) but with a little pic of Mia as “one of the stars of tomorrow!” …
The Fyzz Facility announced that Mia with star in Magpie a new short by writer/director Stephen Fingleton which is due to filmed this February in Northern Ireland. Written as a pre-cursor to The Survivalist, Fingleton’s feature scheduled to shoot later this year, Magpie is an introduction to his harsh, post-apocalyptic world as well as a selection of the characters that inhabit The Survivalist.
Funded by the BFI, Northern Ireland Screen and The Fyzz Facility. Magpie has fantastic cast attached including Olivia Williams (Anna Karenina), Mia Goth (Nymphomaniac) and Martin McCann (Clash of the Titans)
Adult Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), beaten and unconscious, is found in a snow-covered alley by Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), an unassuming fellow with a gentle demeanor who takes her to his apartment. In his austere dwelling she recounts her adventures as a young nymphomaniac in a series of stories, each preceded by director Lars von Trier’s requisite thematic chapter headings and cinematic asides. Young Joe’s (Stacy Martin) exploits, from her debut sexual experience with Jerome (Shia LaBeouf), through her adventures on a train, to her very dramatic experience with a married man, his kids, and his wife (played by Uma Thurman in what might be the best 10 minutes of her career), are all captured in detail — including visual detail — which has been the talk of cinema.
Mia Goth is featured in ID Magazine and we have added x8 lovely HQ photos to the gallery. Mia took on the role as P in the drama-mystery Nymphomaniac. The 19-year-old actress skipped a shirt for the sultry Angelo Pennetta-shot spread while chatting about everything from getting into character for the film to her future. (Read More)
“My character had never known love, so she mistakes everything for sexual love. I was very deep into the character, so the sex scenes came very naturally to me. I knew I had to give myself to it, but I’m a rookie – I’d never done this before. I decided to be P. Any situation I was in, I’d imagine what would P do. Throughout the whole of ‘Nymphomaniac,’ and even now, P never died. I became her.”
On her life growing up:
“I didn’t have a typical upbringing. I had a very full childhood. It means I feel a lot. I see myself as a professional feeler. My first memories are of Brazil. There’s so much music there. It’s one of my favorite places in the world.”
On her future self:
“I want to be a woman who has a little more figured out, who doesn’t have so many doubts. And then I would like to have a whole list of directors I have worked with – Woody Allen, Paul Thomas Anderson. I just want to act. And I want to be good. And I want to be happy, and I think that’s it.”
The latest teaser trailer for Lars von Trier’s already much anticipated Nymphomaniac was briefly removed from Youtube earlier today, after apparently falling foul of the site’s rules on nudity and sexual content.
The 57-second clip is the fifth such “appetizer” to be released on the film’s official Youtube channel, and is apparently from Nymphomaniac’s fifth “chapter”, Little Organ School. (Previous chapter titles have been revealed as The Compleat Angler, Jerôme, Mrs. H and Delirium.)
The sequences that have appeared to have triggered the Youtube shutdown include a sex scene involving Shia LaBeouf and Stacy Martin (who plays the younger version of Charlotte Gainsbourg’s central character, Joe), as well as scenes with Martin and an older man.
The split-screen clip also features more mysterious elements: Bach’s chorale prelude for organ (the same piece repeatedly used in Andrei Tarkovski’s Solaris), a leopard holding a smaller animal in its jaws, and a naked man walking against an Eadweard Muybridge-style backdrop.
The clip was later restored to Youtube, with a warning block.
We have added some great scans from Wonderland Magazine’s October 2013 Issue, photographed by Ben Rayner. Check out the pics in our galleries…
