While many junkets seek to entertain, with fun-filled questions and answers between outlet and talent, sometimes they can be quite solemn affairs, and in the case of A Private War – a biopic of the late war reporter Marie Colvin – it was entirely understandable be the case, as we sat down with the lead two roles Rosamund Pike and Jamie Dornan to discuss this delicate subject matter.
Pike is evidently someone who completely gives herself to the role at hand, and in this instance she knew she had to do justice to the life of the subject, as she explains how she went about bringing this woman to life on screen. Dornan, who plays photographer Paul Conroy, was able to meet and speak to the man he was embodying and he touches upon that, while we ask Pike what she would have asked Colvin if she were still alive.
Watch the full interview below:
Celebrated war correspondent Marie Colvin is a woman who is as comfortable downing martinis with high society’s elite as she is brazenly staring down warlords and fleeing from gunfire. Driven by an enduring desire to bear witness and give voice to the voiceless, Colvin charges into danger, constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado.
A Private War is released on February 15th
