Entertainment Europe: Robbie Williams - Robbie dons a kilt for a Scottish premiere
TAPE: EF02/0210 IN_TIME: 14:39:22 DURATION: 0:27 SOURCES: Scottish TV RESTRICTIONS: DATELINE: Edinburgh, Scotland. March 12, 2002 SHOTLIST 1. SOT Robbie Williams "Well the fact is if I don't wear any knickers in this kilt someone is going to pull up the kilt and get a picture aren't they and that will follow me for the rest of my career and God knows that I have done enough embarrassing things, I don't need any more. Besides that it is really cold up here, do you know what I mean." 2. WS Robbie Williams, with Jonathan Wilkes far right ROBBIE WILLIAMS BRAVES SCOTTISH MARCH IN KILT British singer ROBBIE WILLIAMS braved the cold of a March night in Edinburgh in a specially made kilt, to mark his friend's first night in the rock musical 'Godspell'. Williams wore the black kilt and matching jacket for the show's opening night at the city's Festival Theatre, to support his childhood friend Jonathan Wilkes, who has a starring role in the hit show. Williams has been in Edinburgh since Sunday, where he has rented a luxury flat with Wilkes and another friend - Wilkes' co-star, former 'Neighbours' actor Daniel MacPherson. Wilkes has reportedly chosen not to promote a new album he has recorded in order to star in the musical. Together with MacPherson, he will play the roles of Jesus and Judas on alternate nights. The UK press reports that the three friends had a 90 minute fitting session for their kilts earlier this week, with staff at Edinburgh's contemporary kilt maker Howie Nicholsby of Geoffrey Taylor Kiltmakers working through the night to finish the outfits in time for the launch night. Hearthrob Williams wore his kilt combo with a dog collar, black football socks and white Nike Trainers - but the singer said it was too cold to to wear the kilt in the true Highland manner - without underwear on underneath.

The Nativity Story - Terry Cam
Interview with Oscar Isaac and Shohreh Aghdashloo 1:02 TM Let me begin if I may. All of us kind of grow up with the nativity as part of our childhood. what did the nativity mean if anything to both of you. 1:18 SA Well although I was born a Muslim but I was pretty familiar with the story of the nativity. my grandmother had a bible in Farsi with pictures in them that looked exactly like the film. As a matter of fact the first day I went to work with Keisha on the film I looked back and I saw this beautiful scenery with pink oleanders and a cascade at the very back and women working in the field and it was such a deja vu it was exactly like my grandmothers book. So I was familiar with the story and my grandmother used to read it to me. But I wasn't familiar with the character of Elizabeth, st Elizabeth. That was new to me. 2:02 TM And when you were growing up. 2:03 OI I knew of the story, kind of the gentle version, with no room at the inn, and in my mind there was this little sign that says inn. But I never thought about it in actual dramatic terms. I never understood that it actually cost these people a lot. I just thought they were the little figures you put underneath the Christmas tree. 2:32 TM This experience brought you closer to the human reality of this story? OI Yeah without a doubt. Joseph in the paintings is always the guy behind the sheep, in the shadows I never realized he had an integral role in it and that his love was so selfless. And he had a lot of issues he had to deal with. 2:56 SA Pure love. Unconditional love. Its so hard to find men like that any more. 3:04 TM And saint Elizabeth I think for a lot of people is not the person we always associate, but it is the beginning of the nativity story isn't it? 3:13 SA Absolutely, absolutely. And it was so hard to learn about her because I am afraid there isn't much said about her except a few lines in the gospel of Luke in the new testament and also in the A to Z to the Bible with 3500 characters including Elizabeth which helped me a lot. But a few lines is enough to find out what a generous giving selfless kind woman she was with heart filled with love and compassion for humanity and not necessarily for her beloved. 3:48 TM When you thought about taking the part in this movie did you think that you were going to be playing roles in a story that for so many millions of people around the world is the most important story ever and was it daunting to think that this a cherished part of so many people's faith? 4:10 OI For me maybe dangerously so no. The script that mike rich wrote was so reverential, and so beautifully done -- dramatizing the events but still staying true to the gospels that I felt that the way that I would service that idea is by making him as human possible and approaching him like a character from hamlet. Any character. How do you make him a real living breathing person and not just a walking icon. That would have been the trap in that. SA As a method actor. OI It wasn't until after I was done that it I was like that's Joseph from the bible. (laugh) 4:47 SA I didn't think about consequences either. TM Even though its a cross faith experience for you? 4:52 Absolutely. Because my approach wasn't religious at all. My approach was cultural. Because after all religion is a product of our culture of our upbringing of our environment, geography. So I was very much interested in the cultural aspects of it rather than anything else. And again I was just trying to bring a human into this. I had grandma's physicality because she reminded me of Elizabeth a lot and Elizabeth's thought -- to put them together all I had to do was stay as truthful as possible to may character. 5:27 OI And that was the challenge. Not so much the donkeys and the sheep and the smells and the heat, it was how do you make them truthful. How do I portray a young Jewish man in the first century. 5:43 TM And a huge challenge for Joseph is the fact that his fiancé comes back from out of town pregnant. That is really the crisis for him. OI And then after that having to wrap his mind around having to share the woman he loves with god. How do you do that? TM How DO you do that? OI That's some stiff competition. How do you compete. SA Only Joseph can do that with his unconditional love. 6:10 TM How did you try to get inside the head of someone who is going through those experiences? 6:14 OI IT was incredibly difficult. In the bible there is only one word that describes him -- righteous. And as an actor that is not the most helpful -- do you stand up straight, furrow your brow more. How do you play righteous? And as I worked on the scene I realized, what I held on to, he is a man who is utterly and completely in love with this woman when he looks at her. You could say that's a godly love, its ahumble love, but its love. And even though he feels all those emotions -- anger betrayal romantic desire, jealousy, doubt, the audience gets to see him work through those things so that by the end they see how much it costs him to make the right decisions. And then you can say he is a righteous man. 7:00 TM And its Mary really who is the fulcrum of this. She comes to Elizabeth's home looking for help. 7:12 SA Yes because in my humble opinion Elizabeth is the true mother of Mary. When Mary is in trouble or thinks she is or doesn't quite understand what it means to be blessed she goes to Elizabeth's. In other words she takes her safe haven at Elizabeth's. Not only Elizabeth but the child she is carrying they are both waiting for her. That is what Elizabeth tells her at the very beginning. Who am I that the mother of my lord should come to me. I love this bonded relationship and the fact that kids also know each other. And it tells me that this relationship is going to go on for generations. 7:48 OI She's so good. (cross talk) 8:00 OI When she says those lines from scripture you really believe that this lady would really say something like that. TM Exactly. OI But in such a warm way that its not cold. TM But that's a very difficult challenge as well. Here's this beautiful line of biblical prose that you have to put in a real persons mouth. SA Exactly. And I was really lucky because Catherine was also trying to make all these icons as human as possible. She has already humanized us. So on my way, I was on the right track trying to portray her as truthfully as possible. 8:33 OI And the voice helps right? She can read a phone book and you'll go... 8:44 TM And you were raised a Muslim? SA That's right. TM I suppose it may be that there would be Muslims across the world who would think that you are wrong to participate in a story like this. 8:58 SA No I am afraid you are wrong because Islam accepts Christianity. As a matter of fact when I was doing my research I was wondering if there has been a film made before about st Mary and I realized they made a 6 hour tv series in Iran about st Mary. Recently. Like 5 years ago. Under the Islamic republic reign. So this time they are going to be proud of me. liberals, or religious, or conservatives they are all going to be proud of me because after all I am playing a religious character. 9:34 TM and did it strike you that you were crossing the cultural religious divide and how did you handle that as an actor. 9:48 SA NO. again because the approach was cultural. It wasn't religious. I was just trying to portray this woman as real as I could. So I never thought about its religious aspects or religious consequences and so on and so forth. It was -- I was just trying to bring this kind generous woman to the screen that was my goal. 10:12 TM We were talking about this a little bit earlier: Think about young people, children, who might be coming to see this movie. What do you think, what would you like them to take from the characters in this movie. 10:24 OI You know, what I think is amazing about the film -- and I didn't actually realize it until I saw it because as I said before I was thinking of it as a love story. A love story about how these two people become a family. The most famous family in history but a family. And when I saw the film I realized that all the characters act in this way really and the whole story is about humility and love and I think this is a very easy thing to forget especially no adays when things get so polarized when you are talking about the religious divide. Really the revolution of Christ was the powerful and rich and the proud taking a back seat to the humble and those who act out of love. And I think the actual story of the nativity is the greatest act of that. God decided to come to the people who were ostracized and oppressed and poor and I think that is a very powerful message especially for little kids and for religious people. 11:23 TM Its a revolutionary message. OI Yes it is. 11:25 SA Yes and I am hoping that parents will bring their children to see this film to allow their imagination to work. To empower their imagination and to let us not forget that the bible is an enormous source for the western literature. 11:45 As a matter of fact when I first saw Ingmar Bergman's seven seals I couldn't understand it I couldn't comprehend it until I found out what the story behind it was. And all of the masters in the realm of literature, painting, music have been inspired by -- Shakespeare, john huston, william faulkner, name it. It would allow their imagination to work and let them get to know the story. This most simple and yet the most ambiguous story of man kind and I would love the parents to leave the theatre with one question in mind -- what has changed in me for the last 2006 years. My chariot has turned into the car, my four layers of pashmina have turned into beautiful glamorous dress. I have discovered the universe, but what has changed in me? Inside me? I wonder if we've been able to go inside at least one inch. 12:50 TM what was the most fun part of making part of making this movie. (crosstalk) 13:00 OI We had a month long of bible boot camp basically where we all had to learn how to be first century people. They were off milking goats and making cheese and spinning wool and I was at my little table with first century tools making - SA He made his house. OI Some of it. SA Mostly. And every time -- he wanted his hands to look rough so every time I was passing by he would say do you think they look rough enough and I would say no you still need to work on that because he has such soft hands -- OI Little actor hands. But what was important was how do you make this guy a first century carpenter where its about survival. And so we would make all sorts of things that didn't work at first but it went on for a month... SA 13:45 My favorite one was milking the goat. TM Milking goats. SA Yes, because first of all I didn't know how to do it. And I was pulling it and she looked at me and kicked me like what are you doing and then my instructor told me do not pull it just massage it and the minute I did it this fresh hot milk with the incredible smell that I had not had since childhood came out. It was so primitive. Right then and there I felt right at home. Close to my character. 14:15 OI It was wild because we literally were right there in that village and I would be at my table and I would look across the field and they'd be off by the harvest. Goats would be running around. 14:25 TM So you really lived or learned to live as first century Jews of Palestine. 14:34 SA Whether methodically or not but Catherine had decided she wanted us to go through this and I am so glad she did it. 14:40 TM Because that gets at the cultural aspect you were talking about. 14:42 SA Yes and also I am a method actor so I like to feel the environment. And I also have to tell you that I have worked 30 years but I have never been lucky enough or never had the pleasure or the honor of working with so many good actors on one film at once. It was just incredible. The ensemble cast that comes from all over the world, just to be on the same set with them. To breathe the same environment with them, to chat over a glass of wine. I learned so much. 15:12 OI And I lost my bid to try to have a scene with Josef and harod and Elizabeth. No oscar, you cannot have a scene with shohreh. What 15:27 TM You're trying to rewrite the story. Yeah. 15:30 TM SO it was a cast and crew from all around the world. 15:34 SA All around the world. We had how many translators? ON the set. 4 5 6? Both SA and OI Italian Arabic Spanish French you name it. Berber.... 15:45 TM Now sometimes I guess Hollywood movie sets can be kind of competitive in a productive way but tense places -- was the nativity set like that? 15:56 OI well I think it definitely had its challenges. It was such a quick shoot, but what was great about it was everybody kept a great sense of humor. We'd have to be riding around on a donkey for 9 hours a day with pebbles in the sandals and sand in our mouths and everybody kept that sort of joy of spirit which was really great and I think that really had a lot to do with Catherine. 16:18 SA Just the fact that everyone who was there was there to create his work with love and passion. They weren't there for fame and fortune so it made it a lot easier to work in a lovely atmosphere. 16:30 TM Now have you looked back at the way Hollywood has treated bible stories before whether its Cecil b demille era of great reverence and epic stories or kind of the counter cultural era where everything was kind of subverted. OI Godspell... TM Godspell... OI My first play in high school. TM Was it? Where does this -- is this a return in a way to Hollywood looking at biblical stories with reverence. 17:00 OI I think so but I think what this film does differently is that it tries not just to make them representations of these people. But it tries to open up your imagination to what was it like to really live back then and I think a lot of times those other films were representations of those stories as opposed to really getting to the heart of what it meant to live like that and what it meant to sacrifice these things. 17:28 SA And this film concentrates on this young woman's spiritual journey. And josephs pure love for her which I for one had not seen before. 17:42 TM And sometimes when a Christmas movie really strikes a chord with audiences it becomes a classic we watch it every year year after year. You think this one could be one of those? 17:53 SA Well, I was told its going to be one of those! (laugh) TM It's in the contract. SA And one of the producers came into my trailer filed with pink sand and said I know you are very tired but let me tell you something that makes you happy. Your children are going to see this film at Christmas. And I said , yes yes I have one child. And he said the children of your children, the children of the children of the children of the children of your children -- and I am thinking what you are getting at and he says this film is going to be shown every Christmas and I thought oh my god, my grandchildren jack and jill are watching and jack tells jill don't you think that looks like grandmom and I love the idea. 18:39 TM SO what's next? 18:42 OI I have a film coming out next year that's a really great film called the half life of timothy dorzen that takes places after the fall of the soviet union. Its a political comedy by scott burns. TM That's a long way from Joseph. OI Yeah. A bit but he's still a father he's still trying to find his way. 19:00 SA Charlie Wilson's War. Special part in this film that changes the history of Afghanistan but also Charlie Wilson's life. 19:42 TM I guess the way we tell these stories tells us something about who we are. Cecil b demille in the 1950s its about the representation of the order the hierarchy all that stuff. The way that this movie tells the story of the nativity, what does that tell us about us? 20:06 OI I think its a reminder in a world that can be so polarized when it comes to religious ideas and ideology that humility is what opens peoples hearts and acting with love towards love with one another. I know its a simple idea you know -- that was the revolution of Christ. I think that an important reminder for today. That these were real people with real problems yet they were still able to overcome those things because they were humble. 20:42 SA Indeed. And again ask yourself what has changed in me? What have I done for poverty? poverty personified in the whole world. While we were filming this we witnessed it. All the Berbers who live in the desert and the sleep under the stars and they are lucky if they can get a loaf of bread a day. What have you done for poverty. And while we were shooting most of them have problems with their teeth and I am thinking where are doctors without borders? These people don't have teeth in their mouths so what have you done for poverty. 21:19 TM and making this movie kind of triggered these thoughts? OI / SA Yes. OI I mean we are playing these oppressed people who are just trying to survive and yet they are just as devoted to god and their community. For me they were heroes. All of them. The way that they survived as a people. 21:45 TM And we see up there on the screen portraying in human terms these very holy people. Did that have an impact on your own spirituality. Your own spiritual life at all or were you just, you put down the role and go back to being who you are. SA No, you can't do that with this film. Especially as method actors, you keep thinking about it for at least for a year. OI How can I -- that wasn't very humble and loving of me. Joseph would have hit me with the staff on the head. Quit it. Yes, you try to add that to your own life.
