“Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” Interview: Luke Evans 


Luke Evans is dashing and well, hot, in the new biopic “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.” He plays the title role, the college educator and inventor of the lie detector test who eventually created Wonder Woman. The film maps the creation of our favorite superhero, Wonder Woman! I sat down with the actor at the recently concluded Toronto International Film Festival for this one-on-one interview about the making of the movie.



Here’s the film’s official synopsis:

In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940's. While Marston's feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her 'sexual perversity', he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston's muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research -- while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.

“Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” Interview: Bella Heathcote 


Bella Heathcote (“Fifty Shades Darker,” “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” “The Neon Demon”) stars as Olive Byrne in “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.” She’s a seemingly naďve college student who falls for the charms of Professor Marston (Luke Evans) and his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall). The film tells how Wonder Woman, our favorite superhero, was created. Take a look at my fun interview with Heathcote for “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.”

“Victoria and Abdul” Interview: Eddie Izzard 


Eddie Izzard is barely recognizable in his role as Bertie, Prince of Wales aka King Edward VII in Stephen Frears’ “Victoria and Abdul.” The actor put on twelve stones (168 pounds) for the role, yet you can feel every bit of empathy and hatred coming out of his pores. A fine performance coupled with a really genuine human being! Check out my interview with Eddie Izzard for “Victoria and Abdul.”
