    Synopsis:
    Natalie Dormer made her name playing tough, uncompromising women in dystopian dramas such as GAME OF THRONES and THE HUNGER GAMES. Now, as she prepares for her first starring role in psychological thriller THE FOREST, London’s favourite renegade talks nudity, Hollywood’s feminist revolution and shaving her head. She also explains her choices, future projects, creating more rounded female parts, and about would-be queen Margaery’s intentions (GOT).

    ‘I never quite fitted in. But then, when I got into the entertainment industry, I realised that there’s this whole community of black sheep, mavericks, oddballs; a circus family.

    Author:
    Ari Stein
    Q&A,
    2131 words
    Synopsis:
    Sophistication and style are words that come easy when talking about French actress Clémence Poésy, who emerged earlier this decade from the commercial success of box office hits such as Harry Potter and 127 Hours. Since then Poésy has forged her own unique career path within the worlds of fashion and film, and even turning her hand to music. In 2014, Poésy was chosen as the face of the Love Story fragrance from the fashion house Chloé, cementing her reputation as a style icon. In this candid interview, Poésy opens up her wardrobe to reveal a more provocative side to herself whilst being careful never to reveal too much. We learn about her impassioned work for women’s rights, her level-headed approach to work and why she's a big fan of the 70s.
    Quote:
    “There’s something really pure coming out of [the 70s] – maybe a sense that the world could change through political involvement.” “Fashion’s always been something I looked at as another way to tell stories.”

    Synopsis:
    Sarfraz Manzoor meets Matthew Perry for dinner in the restaurant of a London hotel. Had I been at home at that moment and turned on Comedy Central, I could have been watching him in Friends – on average, 120 episodes of the sitcom are aired in Britain each week. “Oh my God,” says Perry, looking genuinely shocked. At the height of his Friends fame he was addicted to painkillers and alcohol. Now Matthew Perry is in bed by 10pm.

    Jaan Uhelszki
    Narrative,
    3433 words
    Synopsis:
    Bonnie Raitt is one of the very few artists who goes out of her way to help you solve your problems. On her new album Dig In Deeper (out February 26) she unsentimentally helps to solve that age-old mystery that has stumped philosophers, sages, and big thinkers since time began—“What do you do to make love last?” No therapists. No recriminations. Just put in the effort and save what is worth saving. Jaan Uhelszki finds out if the lessons come from her own life. They also talk about politics (“everybody in this country is disgusted with how few people are getting a too big a piece of the pie”), heroes and getting better as you grow older.
