Around the Sun

Having made a name for themselves on Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones, respectively, Cara Theobold and Gethin Anthony now join forces in sweet, indie romantic drama Around the Sun, directed by Oliver Krimpas. It couldn’t be more different from their previous experiences, for this is a single setting, two-hander – more reminiscent of stage work. When we had the pleasure of speaking to the duo on Zoom last week, we wanted to discuss just how fun a shoot it was for them, and unique an experience.

We also talk about how cool it would be to be a location scout, and they both recount their experiences on the major shows where they made their name. We also get onto future plans, and just how productive they’ve been in lockdown, and what exciting new ventures they both have coming up.

Watch the full interview with Cara and Gethin below:


Touring a repossessed chateau, a film location scout falls for its flirtatious representative, who recounts the story of an influential book written there. But is their connection for real, or just a projection of the book’s characters?

Around the Sun is available on Apple TV/iTunes and Prime Video now.
