Prepare to See Joe Alwyn in, Well, Everything

The British actor appeared in four films this year—including Oscar hopefuls The Favourite and Mary, Queen of Scots. And he’s only just getting started.

In 2017, British actor Joe Alwyn shot four films across three continents in less than twelve months, and the resulting projects, all of which hit theatres in the latter half of this year, reveal his impressive range in a series of small but critical roles. First came Operation Finale, about the hunt for Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann (Ben Kingsley), with Alwyn as Eichmann’s son. Then there was Boy Erased, a film about gay-conversion therapy, in which Alwyn, alongside a cast including Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Lucas Hedges, played a closeted predator. The Favourite soon followed, a riotous period piece with Alwyn, as a besotted courtier, revealing a knack for physical comedy opposite Emma Stone.

this month, the twenty-seven-year-old appears in a very different kind of period film, Mary Queen of Scots (December 7). Directed by Josie Rourke, it tells the true story of two young queens who are cousins and rivals for the English crown, with a fierce and brilliant Saoirse Ronan in the role of Mary and Margot Robbie as a powerful yet vulnerable Elizabeth I. Alwyn plays Robert Dudley, Elizabeth’s right hand. “He isn’t driven by politics and ambition and power in the same way as the other male characters,” says Alwyn. “The others try to circle the women and use them for their own advantage. That’s not to say that my character is incapable of doing that, but he has higher priorities or higher feelings—his love and loyalty to Elizabeth.”

Alwyn’s big break came in a shot-out-of-a-cannon moment when Ang Lee cast him, at age twenty-four and fresh out of school, as the lead in the highly anticipated wartime drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. The film stumbled at the box office, but Alwyn remains grateful: “It’s still the most amazing experience I’ve ever had.” Landing a starring role so soon could’ve turned his head, but the young actor stayed focused on his work and re-grouped by taking a number of smaller parts. “Since that film, I’ve tried to make a conscious effort to find projects where, if there were supporting roles where I could learn and be surrounded by a great cast of actors and filmmakers and crew, then that was what I wanted to do.”

That approach led Alwyn to not only create a diverse resume, but also to work with a diverse group of directors. He’s currently shooting Harriet, about abolitionist Harriet Tubman, directed by Kasi Lemmons (Eve’s Bayou). Throughout, Alwyn has retained an apprentice-like humility. “I still find it’s a strange readjustment when you go back to set,” he says. “To do your work in a way where you don’t feel anxious and completely consumed by anxiety, it takes experience and practice.”

His levelheadedness has also helped him navigate the incessant curiosity about his relationship with superstar Taylor Swift. Asked whether anyone gave him guidance, Alwyn says he kept his own counsel. “I didn’t seek out advice on that. Because I know what I feel about it. I think there’s a very clear line as to what somebody should share, or feel like they have to share, and what they don’t want to and shouldn’t have to.”


Prepare-se para ver Joe Alwyn, bem, em tudo

O ator britânico apareceu em quatro filmes este ano – incluindo os esperançosos para o Oscar, The Favourite e Mary, Queen of Scots. E ele está apenas começando.

Em 2017, o ator britânico Joe Alwyn filmou quatro filmes em três continentes em menos de doze meses, e os projetos resultantes, que chegaram aos cinemas no segundo semestre deste ano, revelam seu impressionante alcance em uma série de papéis pequenos, porém exigentes. Primeiro veio Operação Final, sobre a caçada ao oficial nazista Adolf Eichmann (Ben Kingsley), com Alwyn como filho de Eichmann. Depois, houve Boy Erased, um filme sobre a terapia de conversão gay, no qual Alwyn, ao lado de um elenco que incluía Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe e Lucas Hedges, interpretou um estuprador. A Favorita veio logo em seguida, um filme de época turbulento com Alwyn, como um cortesão indecente, revelando um talento para comédia contracenando com Emma Stone.

Neste mês, o jovem de 27 anos aparece em um filme de época muito diferente, Mary Queen of Scots (7 de dezembro). Dirigido por Josie Rourke, conta a história real de duas jovens rainhas que são primas e rivais da coroa inglesa, com uma feroz e brilhante Saoirse Ronan no papel de Mary e Margot Robbie como uma poderosa e vulnerável Elizabeth I. Alwyn interpreta Robert Dudley, o braço direito de Elizabeth. “Ele não é movido pela política, ambição e poder da mesma forma que os outros personagens masculinos”, diz Alwyn. “Os outros tentam circular as mulheres e usá-las para sua própria vantagem. Isso não quer dizer que meu personagem é incapaz de fazer isso, mas ele tem prioridades mais altas ou sentimentos mais altos – seu amor e lealdade a Elizabeth.

A grande oportunidade de Alwyn veio em um momento de arremesso de canhão, quando Ang Lee o escalou, aos 24 anos e recém-saído da escola, como o protagonista do muito esperado drama de guerra Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. O filme fracassou nas bilheterias, mas Alwyn continua agradecido: “Ainda é a experiência mais incrível que já tive.” Conseguir um papel de protagonista tão cedo poderia ter virado sua cabeça, mas o jovem ator permaneceu focado em seu trabalho e conseguiu vários papéis coadjuvantes. “Desde o filme, eu tentei fazer um esforço consciente para encontrar projetos onde, se houvesse papéis de apoio onde eu pudesse aprender e estar cercado por um grande elenco de atores, diretores e equipe, então era isso que eu queria fazer.

Essa abordagem levou a Alwyn a não apenas criar um currículo diversificado, mas também a trabalhar com um grupo diversificado de diretores. Atualmente, ele está filmando Harriet, sobre a abolicionista Harriet Tubman, dirigida por Kasi Lemmons (Eve’s Bayou). Todo o tempo, Alwyn manteve uma humildade de aprendiz. “Eu ainda acho que é uma readaptação estranha quando você volta para o set”, diz ele. “Para fazer o seu trabalho de uma forma que não se sinta completamente consumido pela ansiedade, é preciso experiência e prática”.

The Atlanta Film Critics Circle, has awarded its top films of the year. Their winners are listed below with The Favourite showing up, taking the top prize. “The film is defined by incredible performances and a powerful rendering of the viciousness behind class divisions,” says AFCC co-founder Felicia Feaster. “Though set in the 18th century, there is clear resonance for our current age and the often brutal circumstances for women who are powerless and lack social standing in Yorgos Lanthimos’ trenchant rendering of gender divisions and power,” says Feaster.

Joe Alwyn was recently featured for a double cover of the Essential Homme Winter 2018 issue! In addition to the two covers, Joe gave an interview to the magazine where he discussed The Favourite, Mary Queen of Scots and Boy Erased. The full interview and a translation can be found below:

It’s one of the first brisk days of the season, and Joe Alwyn is dressed in a casual all-black athleisure ensemble, fit for someone constantly on the go. It’s the perfect, tall, dark, and handsome frame for his icy and striking features, which have landed him an international campaign for Prada. He yields the mighty albeit quiet confidence of a leading man, with a demeanor that can command a room while simultaneously remaining unobtrusive.

Yet Alwyn has been in the spotlight a few years now, letting his work speak for himself in an age where people are more interested in what goes on off-camera. He doesn’t post much on social media. He’s successfully kept his relationship with pop megastar Taylor Swift-who penned a song about him, sweetly titled “Gorgeous”-fairly private. But he’s not necessarily shy or secretive. “I just don’t have a tendency to overshare anything,” he shares. Being in such close and frequent proximity to fame and celebrity culture while choosing not to participate is refreshing and, at this point, almost radical. But audiences are clearly hungry for more of the actor, and with his involvement in four highly anticipated films, they’re going to get it.

The 27-year-old actor was raised in London, where he remains based in between his increasingly busy schedule. He attended the City of London School (which also counts Daniel Radcliffe as an alum) before studying English literature and Drama at the University of Bristol, and eventually earning a degree from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, where he was trained primarily in stage. A star student (no pun intended), Alwyn found himself in his first feature film – cast in the title role of 2016’s war drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk – two weeks before he even graduated.

Two years later, Alwyn is set to take the world by an even bigger storm. He stars in Operation Finale – a historical film with Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley – as the son of a Nazi war criminal. He has a role in the biographical coming-of-age film about a pastor’s son who survives gay conversion therapy Boy Erased, alongside Lucas Hedges, Troye Sivan, and Xavier Dolan.

“I think it’s such an important story to be told and explored,” he says. “It was very eye-opening and relevant, especially here – in America, we have a vice president, Mike Pence, who has spoken on the record about believing in the power of conversion therapy. I think it’s crazy, and when people feel like they can’t be themselves and they grow up in cultures or families that don’t allow them to feel comfortable or able to be who they are, then that’s always a relevant topic.”

Alwyn’s presence in the film is brief but powerful, demonstrating his inclination to pursue dark and more challenging roles that set him apart from his contemporaries, and distance himself from the perils of being typecast as simply a heartthrob.

He also appears in The Favourite and Mary Queen of Scots, two high-brow period pieces. Though, “I’m not seeking out period films,” he clarifies. “I just want to work with interesting, great film directors and filmmakers.”

Directed by Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos and co-starring Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, The Favourite is an uproarious and subversive affair under the guise of a decadent 18th-century drama. Alwyn portrays Stone’s love interest, and while there are a lot of love triangles and twists, his performance keeps the film firmly grounded and everyone is going off the rails.

“Yorgos Lanthimos is a favourite director of mine. I read that script back in 2015, and it was one of my favourite things that I’ve read. It was so refreshing and different, especially in terms of period films. It had a special twist to it that I could only imagine through his slightly skewed mind. Having seen his previous films, I just wanted to be a part of it – it was such a great script with a great cast attached. It was just brilliant.”

The film shines with its rich and complex characters, and motives that shift around in intention and sincerity. “He [Lanthimos] had absolutely no interest in making a film in the sense of it being a documentary or trying to capture a moment in time perfectly,” he says. There’s a tremendous amount of chemistry that permeates through the film, reflected in the cast’s ability to successfully bounce of each other, a result that Lanthimos set to accomplish early in the film’s production.

“He didn’t want to talk about the period or the history – he just wanted us to jump in and have as much fun as possible and be willing to look stupid in front of each other. So for the two-week rehearsal we had, we would switch roles, be rolling around on the floor, singing, dancing; we would be doing all these exercises and almost be performing it as a play, so when we got to shooting, we’d humiliated ourselves so much that we had no reservations about jumping in and doing what he wanted.”

The Josie Rourke-directed Mary Queen of Scots, which also features Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, takes a more serious approach. “We had two weeks’ rehearsal with Josie Rourke, who has a theatre-based background, and there was a table read, talking with a historian in the room, talking about the characters, and the period it’s in. I guess in some sense a more conventional film from what you might expect from that time and that story.” Alwyn stars as Robert Dudley, the favourite of Robbie’s Queen Elizabeth –  there’s a little irony there.

Alwyn frequently expresses gratitude and appreciation for his co-stars and the directors he’s worked with, citing their guidance as invaluable. He remains humble with a drive to excel in his field as a great actor, with a fierce curiosity and fortunate abilities to learn from the best. And while he has a slew of period pieces coming out – he’s also been linked to a biopic about civil rights activist Harriet Tubman out next year – it’s clear that his time is now.


Recentemente Joe estrelou duas capas da revista Essential Homme em sua edição de Inverno. Além das duas capas, Joe concedeu uma entrevista, onde ele discutiu os filmes A favorita, Mary Queen of Scots e Boy Erased. Confira a entrevista completa abaixo:

É um dos primeiros dias animados da temporada, e Joe Alwyn está vestido com uma roupa casual totalmente preta, adequada para alguém em constante movimento. É perfeitamente alto, escuro e bonito para suas características geladas e marcantes, que lhe renderam uma campanha internacional para a Prada. Ele tem a poderosa confiança, embora tranquila, de um lider, com um comportamento que pode comandar uma sala enquanto simultaneamente permanece discreto.

No entanto, Alwyn está no centro das atenções há algum tempo, deixando seu trabalho falar por si mesmo em uma época em que as pessoas estão mais interessadas no que acontece fora da câmera. Ele não publica muito nas redes sociais. Ele manteve com sucesso seu relacionamento com a pop-star Taylor Swift, que escreveu uma música sobre ele, docemente intitulada “Gorgeous” – totalmente privado. Mas ele não é necessariamente tímido ou reservado. “Eu simplesmente não tenho a tendência de compartilhar demais”, ele diz. Estar tão próximo da fama e da cultura das celebridades, enquanto escolhe não participar, é refrescante e, neste ponto, quase radical. Mas o público está claramente com fome por mais do ator, e com o envolvimento dele em quatro filmes muito esperados, eles vão conseguir.

O ator de 27 anos foi criado em Londres, onde ele permanece mesmo com sua agenda cada vez mais ocupada. Ele frequentou a City of London School (que também conta com Daniel Radcliffe como ex aluno) antes de estudar literatura inglesa e teatro na Universidade de Bristol, e acabou se formando na Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, onde foi treinado principalmente em palco. Um estudante estrela (sem trocadilhos), Alwyn se viu em seu primeiro longa-metragem – escalado para o papel principal de Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, duas semanas antes de se formar.

Dois anos depois, Alwyn está pronto para conquistar o mundo com uma tempestade ainda maior. Ele estrela o filme Operação Final – um filme histórico com Oscar Isaac e Ben Kingsley – como filho de um criminoso de guerra nazista. Ele tem um papel no filme biográfico sobre o filho de um pastor que sobrevive à terapia de conversão gay, Boy Erased, ao lado de Lucas Hedges, Troye Sivan e Xavier Dolan.

“Eu acho que é uma história tão importante para ser contada e explorada”, diz ele. “Foi muito revelador e relevante, especialmente aqui – nos Estados Unidos, temos um vice-presidente, Mike Pence, que falou no registro sobre acreditar no poder da terapia de conversão. Eu acho que é loucura, e quando as pessoas sentem que não podem ser elas mesmas e elas crescem em culturas ou famílias que não permitem que se sintam confortáveis ou capazes de ser quem são, então isso é sempre um tópico relevante. ”

A presença de Alwyn no filme é breve, mas poderosa, demonstrando sua inclinação para buscar papéis sombrios e mais desafiadores que o diferenciam de seus contemporâneos, e se distancia dos perigos de ser rotulado como simplesmente um galã.

Ele também aparece em The Favourite e Mary Queen of Scots, dois filmes de época. No entanto, “eu não estou procurando filmes de época”, ele esclarece. “Eu só quero trabalhar com grandes diretores e cineastas interessantes.”

Dirigido pelo autor grego Yorgos Lanthimos e co-estrelado por Emma Stone e Rachel Weisz, The Favourite é um assunto polêmico e subversivo, sob o disfarce de um drama decadente do século XVIII. Alwyn retrata o interesse amoroso de Stone, e apesar de existirem muitos triângulos e reviravoltas amorosas, sua performance mantém o filme firmemente enraizado e todo mundo está saindo dos trilhos.

“Yorgos Lanthimos é um dos meus diretores favoritos. Eu li esse script em 2015, e foi uma das coisas favoritas que li. Foi tão refrescante e diferente, especialmente em termos de filmes de época. Tinha um toque especial que eu só podia imaginar através de sua mente levemente inclinada. Tendo visto seus filmes anteriores, eu só queria fazer parte disso – era um ótimo roteiro com um grande elenco anexado. Foi simplesmente brilhante.

O filme brilha com seus personagens ricos e complexos e motivos que mudam de intenção e sinceridade. “Ele [Lanthimos] não tinha absolutamente nenhum interesse em fazer um filme no sentido de ser um documentário ou tentar capturar um momento no tempo perfeitamente”, diz ele. Há uma tremenda quantidade de química que permeia o filme, refletida na capacidade do elenco de se destacar, um resultado que lanthimos estabeleceu no início da produção do filme.

“Ele não queria falar sobre o período ou a história – ele só queria que entrássemos e nos divertíssemos o máximo possível e estivéssemos dispostos a parecer estúpidos um na frente do outro. Então, para o ensaio de duas semanas que tivemos, trocaríamos de papéis, estaríamos rolando no chão, cantando, dançando; estaríamos fazendo todos esses exercícios e quase realizando isso como uma peça, então quando começamos a filmar, nós nos humilhamos tanto que não tínhamos reservas em entrar e fazer o que ele queria”.

Mary Queen of Scots dirigido por Josie Rourke, que também conta com Saoirse Ronan e Margot Robbie, tem uma abordagem mais séria. “Nós tivemos um ensaio de duas semanas com Josie Rourke, que tem uma formação baseada em teatro, e houve uma mesa de leitura, conversamos com um historiador na sala, falando sobre os personagens, e o período em que se passa o filme. Eu acho que nesse sentido, foi um filme mais convencional, algo que você esperaria daquele tempo e dessa história. ”Alwyn estrela como Robert Dudley, o favorito da rainha Elizabeth de Robbie – há um pouco de ironia ali.

Alwyn freqüentemente expressa gratidão e apreço por seus colegas de elenco e diretores com os quais ele trabalhou, citando sua orientação como inestimável. Ele continua sendo humilde com um esforço para se destacar em seu meio como um grande ator, com uma curiosidade feroz e oportunidades de aprender com os melhores. E enquanto ele tem uma série de filmes de época saindo – ele também foi ligado a um filme biográfico sobre a ativista de direitos civis Harriet Tubman que estreia no ano que vem – está claro que sua hora é agora.
