Richard Madden ‘didn’t want to act again’ after ilming Bodyguard
Richard Madden has confessed his enthusiasm for acting lessened after starring in hit BBC series Bodyguard. The Scottish actor led the drama from Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio as David Budd, a Ptsd-suffering war veteran who’s hired as a specialist protection oficer for Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes).
“It had taken so much out of me physically, mentally and personally,“Madden said in a new interview with GQ.”
I didn’t see any of my friends for months, unless they came to set. It was just relentless.” He continued: “You didn’t get a day off. My character doesn’t get a second off. It took more out of me than anything else I’ve done.”
Upon its debut, Bodyguard swiftly became one of the most watched shows in the history of the channel.
The actor also recalled sobbing so much on the light home after ilming his Game of Thrones death scene that other passengers were forced to move seats.
“I looked like I’d murdered someone and got on that light which, in fact, I hadn’t — I’d been murdered,” he said. Rachel Weisz has an issue with members of the press who are intent on continually asking her what it’s like to act alongside other women. The British actor, who was attending the 2018 Gotham Awards, used the ceremony as an opportunity to express a hope that one day she won’t be asked such questions, highlighting the double standard that male actors don’t get asked the same question about working with other men. Accepting the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Performance for Yorgos Lanthimos ilm The Favourite, Weisz said: “I hope one day in the not-so-distant future we don’t get asked what it was like to share the screen with other women. Because I don’t think you ever ask men that. But I could be wrong.”
Weisz stars in the period comedy alongside Olivia Colman and Emma Stone who both couldn’t attend the ceremony. In their place, Weisz brought along two cardboard cutout masks of their faces. Upon its release in the US, the Fox Searchlight ilm has become the highest-grossing independent ilm of the year so far. Actress and former Miss World Priyanka Chopra married American singer Nick Jonas in a traditional
Hindu ceremony in Rajasthan, after three days of wedding celebrations which included a Christian wedding, a colourful mehendi ceremony, a friendly cricket match and a power-packed ‘desi’ musical evening.
Their wedding celebrations were in tune with the majestic venue — the royal Umaid Bhawan Palace, situated atop a hill in the Blue City of Jodhpur in Rajasthan.
Priyanka, 36, and Nick, 26, irst exchanged vows in a Christian ceremony oficiated by the groom’s father on Dec.1. They wore custommade Ralph Lauren ensembles — a good it as the two stars had shared the spotlight for the irst time as guests of the designer at the 2017 Met Gala.
