WRIT­TEN IN THE STARS

YOU (South Africa) - - LEISURE -

The first film was re­leased in 1937 and starred Janet Gaynor and Fredric Marsh, the 1954 ver­sion had Judy Gar­land and James Ma­son in the lead roles, and the 1976 re­make was a rock mu­si­cal star­ring Bar­bra Streisand and Kris Kristof­fer­son.

To pre­pare for his role, Bradley had to learn to play the gui­tar and pi­ano, as well as how to sing like a sea­soned pro­fes­sional.

Sev­eral scenes were shot at real mu­sic fes­ti­vals such as Glas­ton­bury in the UK and Coachella in the USA, where Gaga was head­lin­ing. Bradley sang live with her, as Jack­son. “I was ter­ri­fied. You for­get ev­ery­thing on stage in front of 30 000 peo­ple. But I looked at Ste­fani and re­laxed. Her be­lief in me gave me courage.”
