Os­car nom­i­nee in Welsh­man’s film

Glamorgan Gazette - - Your Views -

WELSH ac­tor, writer and di­rec­tor Craig Roberts has landed Os­car-nom­i­nated ac­tress Sally Hawkins to star in his new film, Eter­nal Beauty.

Hawkins, who is nom­i­nated for Best Ac­tress at this year’s 90th Academy Awards for her role in Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Wa­ter, will star along­side Cannes Film Fes­ti­val win­ner and Harry Pot­ter-star David Thewlis and Alice Lowe, of Sight­seers and Pre­venge fame.

Eter­nal Beauty is due to start film­ing in Wales this spring and will fol­low the story of June who, when re­jected by life, spi­rals into a chaotic, schiz­o­phrenic world.

Writ­ten by Maesy­cwm­mer’s Roberts, Eter­nal Beauty is the first pro­ject from the 27-year-old’s pro­duc­tion com­pany, Cliff Edge Pic­tures. It fol­lows his 2015 di­rec­to­rial de­but, Just Jim – which he shot in his home­town and which starred Hollywood star Emile Hirsch.

Roberts, who has starred in Sub­ma­rine, 22 Jump Street and Red Oaks on Ama­zon, said: “I’ve been liv­ing with the char­ac­ters in Eter­nal Beauty for a while now and it feels like the right time to share them.”
