Filibuster 47 - 'England is Mine' Interviews - Film podcasts
Interviews done after the screening of the film at the Edinburgh festival with Mark Gill, Jack Lowden, Jessica Brown Findlay, and Laurie Kyniston.
Gill discusses wanting to make a film and not a bio-pic, the casting of Lowden - other actors auditioning did "weird impressions" of Morrissey while Lowden in a "bizarre audition tape" played the character in the script. Gill worked with Lowden for about a year before filming started. Lyrics from Hatful of Hollow, Morrissey's interviews, Billy Duffy and family of Anji Hardy were the main sources for the story. Film is sold all over. Movie "Submarine" is a reference point.
Lowden talks about his approach to the character and challenge of playing a person whom "everybody has an opinion about." Two weeks after finishing England is Mine, went to film Dunkirk.
Findley went to art school and knew about Linder; talks about wanting to play complex characters.
Laurie Kyniston said that Gill ran into Marr who wished him luck with the movie.
