‘Vanity Fair’ gallery update + interview

Since ‘Vanity Fair’ is going to premiere on ITV this Sunday (and the second episode will air on Monday), there’s a lot of promotion going on for it. Charlie gave an interview for BradfordZone which you can read at the link with a few highlights posted below. I have also updated the gallery with new stills, behinf the scenes and promotional images, so be sure to check them out!


Q: What was your reaction when you heard you had got the role?

“It was exciting to be playing someone who, at least on paper, reads as a pain in the backside. Something I hadn’t really done before. The opportunity to work in the UK and with such brilliant English actors was also hugely appealing.”

Q: Had you read the book?

“I hadn’t read the book. I knew about Vanity Fair as I studied English at A-level – so I knew of Thackeray but I’d never actually dived into the book. I also knew there had been previous film and TV adaptations. “Obviously when I got the job the first thing I did was buy the book. I read it over the next couple of months and loved it, laughed out loud and got a copy for my dad and my mum. But I stayed well away from the 2004 film and the 1998 BBC adaptation. “I didn’t want to see other people’s interpretations of George. In a way he’s a bit of a villain in the story, but it was my goal to change that. I wanted George to want to do the good thing. I hope we don’t hate George completely and realise he just doesn’t understand anything else.”

Q: Are you wary of the negative aspects to both fame and social media?

“I’ve got a lot of good people around me who won’t let me get an inch from the ground. A lot of good friends from home who just constantly take the mickey out of me, which is very helpful. And a mother and father who are constantly making sure that I am who I am. “I grew up with social media. I was working when I was 14 and I was on social media then. In a way it has helped because I feel like I’ve grown out of that phase now. I don’t really spend too much time on social media anymore as I know it can become unhealthy. But you have to accept the fact that it is a different world, and for what I do, it can be extremely useful. So I need to know why it’s useful and why it’s not.”
