Scares on the red car­pet for Scott’s big pre­miere

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Ian Bunt­ing

An Air­drie ac­tor has taken on a chill­ing new role in a ter­ri­fy­ing hor­ror flick mak­ing its bow in Glas­gow this week.

And movie fans can check out Scott Stewart’s lead per­for­mance in short film Yuriko at the open pre­miere in the Mar­riott ho­tel on Ar­gyle Street on Thurs­day, Au­gust 6.

Burn­foot na­tive Scott, 22, sets the scene for what scares await au­di­ences in the fright-fest, telling the Ticket: “The film is about a di­ary of a girl named Yuriko that another char­ac­ter called Bruce brings back from his trip to Ja­pan.

“Lit­tle does he know the di­ary is cursed and upon read­ing it, he un­locks the curse to bring it crash­ing down upon him and ev­ery­one around him.

“My char­ac­ter Ken is the main char­ac­ter in the film as it is cen­tred around him dis­cov­er­ing his friends’ deaths.”

Yuriko is di­rected by Tony Scott, who was im­pressed by Scott’s act­ing tal­ents and chose him for the lead part.

Scott ex­plains: “Tony has di­rected a lot of su­per­hero-based films for fes­ti­vals in Scot­land and Eng­land.

“I knew him through a friend and af­ter speak­ing to him at a net­work­ing night, heard he was cast­ing and de­cided to send him my CV and re­cent footage.

“He felt I was right for the part af­ter also see­ing me in some of my past projects and even though Yuriko was pro­duced very quickly and was a lit­tle tir­ing, Tony is re­ally nice to work around and gets my sense of hu­mour.

“Tony is cur­rently work­ing on a fea­ture film called FLUX that I have been keep­ing in the loop with and it looks like this pro­ject is go­ing to push his name fur­ther in the right di­rec­tion.”

Scott added: “The pre­miere of Yuriko in Glas­gow should be a very good night.

“I’m not a big fan of the more com­mer­cial suit and tie events but these are the ones the big­wigs go to so they are ben­e­fi­cial.

“There are two other films at the event be­ing screened so I am look­ing for­ward to get­ting feed­back and see­ing the other projects.

“We all felt it was a good idea to hold an open pre­miere as we wanted peo­ple to come along and check out the film and meet the cast in a re­laxed, friendly en­vi­ron­ment.”

Those in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing the pre­miere of Yuriko can pay at the door from 7pm and there is a smart dress code.
