Sons of Liberty interview and Episode 1 screencaps

Full interview here

This is the first time people will be seeing you on American television. You’d previously done a pilot, but that didn’t get picked up. Were you looking to get involved with TV projects, and are you looking to do more of that?
BARNES: It’s something that I had been hesitant about, a few years ago. But, I’m always a bit slow to catch on to trends. Even when I was at school, I was never the first one to catch on to what was happening. For example, I’ve only just gotten onto Facebook, and that’s 10 years late. It’s a good example of how far behind I am. I love television. I’m a huge Netflix-type binger of shows, and I get very, very invested. I was invested in just reading the script for this, so you can imagine what I’m like when I’ve got access to 22 episodes at one time. It was absolutely something I thought would be very cool, but you think about it differently because you have to really love the character in order to spend that amount of time with them and really believe in them. So, I’m absolutely open to working in any medium. I’ve spent six or seven months on plays before, which very few people see. But I think it’s very exciting that I’m on an American television for is playing one of the Founding Fathers of the country. That’s a good step forward for me. I’m actually weirdly more excited about this being on people’s televisions than I am about a film coming out, which people have to go to see, and make a choice to go and see. Obviously, they have the choice to watch that particular channel or not, but at the same time, I am very excited about it because, even if their televisions are off, I know it’s playing. There’s something quite exciting about that, I suppose because it’s fresh and different for me.

Q. You’re familiar with this slice of American history from the British perspective, but did anything during filming surprise you?
A. I had no idea that Sam Adams, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Paul Revere, Thomas Jefferson and John Hancock had literally been in the same room at one point, plotting how best to go about achieving their goals. I think you assume they’re from slightly different eras if you are like me and don’t know any better.

Next month you’ll be seen in “Seventh Son.” More swordplay?
Yes, Jeff Bridges plays this fantastically grizzly, grumpy but also quite broken fighter of evil, and Julianne Moore is this beautifully dramatic and saucy witch. It’s about the battles within every individual between goodness and evil, and the debate between destiny and free will.

EMMA BROWN: How much did you know about the American Revolution? I grew up in London and I knew very little about it. It’s not something you really learn about in school.
BEN BARNES: I also knew very little about it. Obviously you hear about these characters; you know about George Washington and Benjamin Franklin and John Hancock—your John Hancock. But if I’m being really honest, I didn’t know they were all alive at the same time. Three of them became president, and several of them are on different dollar bills, and you think, “Well, they can’t all have been working towards the same goals at the same time.” And they were. For me, it was really exciting reading the script because I didn’t even really know how or where the story was going, which might have come across as quite ignorant. But I think that’s part of the reason I was so excited to do it.

By the Gun and Interview and Bello Magazine shoot

Interview from here

Well we shot a good chunk of the film in Providence, Rhode Island because I think they could find a lot of the back alleys and things that we needed for that gritty urban texture. Then we shot the remaining stuff in the North End. The real treat about filming this was that when I arrived they had a lot of the supporting cast already, and they were as authentic as they possibly could be. A lot of the places we shot were well-known Boston bars. We actually got a lot of the gangsters and the bar owners who are infamous in the town to play cameos. We had some of the gangsters played by ex-policemen who had seen this story from the other side. Everyone in Boston is such a great storyteller. They are so keen to tell you stories about the dealings they had with these kinds of characters in the past. There was no limit to the amount of secondhand research that was available to me.

Your upcoming film, Seventh Son will finally be released on February 6th. Were you disappointed when the movie’s original release date was postponed?

Barnes: I was disappointed that it got postponed because you make something and you want it to get out there. You will now be able to hopefully enjoy it, and that is exactly how I viewed this film. It was not quite what I expected when I saw it. It has this lovely, fun, nostalgic feel to it. There are four central characters, the love story and the history between the two older characters. It has magic and intrigue. It has this great subject that Jeff Bridges and I were very keen to highlight about the dark, the light and the good and the bad in everyone. It almost relates to the By the Gun as well. Can you love even if you do not understand hatred? Can you murder out of love? Those are underlying themes that could be set in any universe. The idea of fate and destiny is very present as well. Obviously the thrill of working with your heroes in every scene was a big draw for me to do that film. Actually I wanted to get it out there, but it was truly a studio issue in terms of Legendary Pictures moving to Universal Studios and that studio already having their slate set for the rest of the year. It was not anything to do with the film itself. It will find its audience when it is supposed to.

Seventh Son interviews

Link to first one here

Ben Barnes: I’ve done some work in the fantasy realm before, but I think a lot of films are presented as an allegory of good versus evil, and they have very interesting subtexts. Not all too often are the characters really explored, to the point of what dilemmas they’re going through, in their approach to what they’re doing. I think that whole concept of good versus evil, and are you evil if you’re attempting to kill or murder something that you believe to be evil, are dilemmas that these characters are struggling with, particularly my character, as an apprentice. He’s somebody who’s new to it, but knows that he’s meant for something more, in this world. How exactly that’s going to play out is something that he doesn’t know, and the idea of fate and destiny is painted on top of that, as well. There’s a lot of interesting things, thematically.

Another here

“What I like about films like these is that you can heighten the imagery to take on the themes it represents in fantasy.
“If you want to talk about forces of nature, then you literally have trees uprooting themselves and starting to move. When you look at anthropomorphism, turning into animals actually means representing different sides of yourself. When it comes to casting magic spells, you have to earn the power or experience to use it.”

“That’s what makes the fantasy genre so fantastic. It’s pure escapism. You can watch the movie just to have a good time. It’s fun to find out who’s going to win at the end,” he concluded, before fake-whispering, “Me.”
THOUGH Jeff Bridges had to skip the press meet in New York because he wasn’t feeling well, his presence was very much felt at the event.

Co-star Ben Barnes said working with the 65-year-old actor was the “biggest draw” of doing Seventh Sonfor him.
“I would love to be in his head for just five minutes,” Barnes attested. “He’s got this script that’s just riddled with drawings, amazing little cartoons of monsters and notes everywhere.”
Barnes also revealed how he’d steal one of Bridges’ drawings on the set of Seventh Son.
“He used to leave this little drawings on napkins where we were eating. At the end of the meal, I’d secretly shove it into my pocket.”
