All this week we’ve been putting up interviews with the cast and filmmakers from the latest version of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel, The Three Musketeers. The movie has been remade numerous times with the Oliver Reed version probably the most famous. This new version brings together a great group of actors which I had the privileged of chatting with last week before the World Premiere.
I enjoyed all of the interviews but my favourite by far was with Orlando Bloom. He’s been in so many movies and is a legend in my eyes. Often it’s difficult meeting actors as you see them on screen and can make the mistake of going in and being a bit too silly or a bit too serious and finding the balance is very hard in the 3-5 minutes that you have with them. In the case of Orlando, it was very easy from the start as soon as he welcomed me into the room. He was very eager to find out what HeyUGuys was and ask question about me which was always a nice start! I’ve edited the video down so it’s all about the movie but he was so kind about HeyUGuys and chatting to him was an absolute pleasure.
I always had in mind to bring up Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds but you never know how well it’ll go down. With him it as a no brainer as soon as I walked in the room so have a watch of the interview below and keep your eyes peeled for the song towards the end. It was a personal life highlight and one I won’t forget in a hurry!
The Three Musketeers is released today, 12th October and our review is live here. You can also see our previous interviews and other Three Musketeers coverage here. Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow and Friday when our interviews with Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans and director, Paul W.S. Anderson will go live.
