While the film may have a somewhat sombre, poignant tone, our interview with Goodbye Christopher Robin’s two lead stars Margot Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson couldn’t have been more different, as we enjoyed an entertaining chat with two of the industry’s safest bets.
Gleeson plays Winnie the Pooh creator A.A. Milne, and Robbie plays his wife Daphne, in a tale about their child Christopher Robin, and how he was affected by his accidental celebrity status. The pair discuss the allure of Pooh, and how they went about researching their two roles.
Naturally, we couldn’t resist discussing future projects with the two stars, who have a hand in rather exciting franchises. Gleeson is to reprise his role as General Hux in Star wars: The Last Jedi, with Robbie all but set to get back into the mindset of Harley Quinn for Suicide Squad 2. As anticipated, the pair weren’t really allowed to say much about either project, but worth watching for their hilarious attempt at dodging the question…
Watch the full interview below:
After leaving London for the English countryside, writer A.A. Milne starts to spin fanciful yarns about his son’s growing collection of stuffed animals. These stories form the basis for “Winnie-the-Pooh” and “The House at Pooh Corner,” published respectively in 1926 and 1928. Milne and his family soon become swept up in the instant success of the books, while the enchanting tales bring hope and comfort to the rest of postwar England.
Goodbye Christopher Robin is released on September 29th. You can read our review of the film here.
