Cassandra Harris (in loving memory)

Cassandra Harris  

 In loving memory 1952-1991

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 

Cassandra Harris (15 December 1952  – 28 December 1991) was an Australian actress.

Born Sandra Colleen Waites in Sydney, Australia , Harris was a student of NIDA acting school from 1960 to 1963 and performed in the successful Sydney stage production of Boeing Boeing from 1964 to 1965. She appeared in The Greek Tycoon (1978), Rough cut (1980), and the James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only as the Countess Lisl von Schlaf, the ill-fated mistress of Milos Colombo (played by Israeli actor Topol). While she was filming this movie, her third husband, Pierce Brosnan, met James Bond series producer Albert R. Broccoli, which eventually led to his casting as the new James Bond with starring roles in four James Bond films.

She guest starred in several episodes of the television series Remington Steel ewith her husband Brosnan, to whom she was married from 1977 until her death in Los Angeles, California from ovarian cancer at the age of 39.

She had three children -- Christopher and Charlotte Harris, from her second marriage to Dermot Harris— a younger brother of the late actor, Richard Harris -- and son Sean Brosnan, from her third marriage to Pierce. Christopher and Charlotte were adopted by Brosnan after Dermot Harris's death in 1986. Harris had allegedly always wanted to see her husband portray James Bond, but her death occurred prior to his selection for the role in "GoldenEye."

Sarandon answers Brosnan's call

  Sarandon answers Brosnan's call

source ; NYdailynews.com

If you want Susan Sarandon to star in your movie, shoot it near her house, make sure the schedule isn't grueling and have Pierce Brosnan call her himself to ask.

The Oscar winner took a role in writer-director Shana Feste's "The Greatest" for the aforementioned reasons, she said at a Bon Appetit/Supper Club dinner following the flick's premiere at Sundance.

"I was debating doing the movie, but it was near my house, it wasn't that long a shoot, and [Feste] was so passionate about it," Sarandon told us. "I said we'd have to get a great male lead, and I thought Pierce was a good suggestion. So one day I get a voice-mail, and it was Pierce. He said 'This is Pierce Brosnan. "The Greatest." Why not?' And I was in."

The film focuses on a family (Sarandon and Brosnan are the parents) trying to cope with the loss of a child after a car accident.

"It was serious subject matter," Sarandon acknowledged. "Luckily, there are a lot of moments where people are allowed to laugh, so I think that stops it from being unbearable and melodramatic. It's hard for me, because tonight was the first time I saw it." And?

"Well, when you see any film for the first time, you first notice a lot of your scenes are missing and things are different in places, and it's very disorienting. The performances are all very strong, but I'm not in a position to objectively critique," Sarandon said.

"But I think I look horrible. I don't even like watching myself when I'm supposed to be glamorous, but watching yourself when you're blubbering all the time and bitching at people is worse. But my son told me I did a good job, so I trust him."

Even with all that weeping, Sarandon found a way to keep the mood on the set light. "We had a fun group of people there, and I have to stay loose when I work, so I tend to aggressively try to have a good time. On 'Lorenzo's Oil' and 'Dead Man Walking,' I never laughed so hard. You have to laugh more on a movie that's so serious."

Speaking of serious, Sarandon told us about her own worst car accident: "A long time ago in New Jersey, I was driving and I was hit on the driver's side, and the car went up on its side. I wasn't wearing a seat belt and I was in some huge car. I had a concussion, but I wasn't badly injured. My mother said, 'Thank God you were wearing new underwear.'"

"The Ghost" casting & shooting update

The Ghost "casting & shooting update

source ; http://www.firstshowing.net

After nearly two decades, the controversial but extremely talented Oscar winning filmmaker Roman Polanski will finally get back to directing with a contemporary thriller titled The Ghost, to begin shooting in Germany on February 4th of this year. We covered the original news last year when Nic Cage was still attached, but AICN broke the story today about the latest casting details after receiving the press release for the film, which also ably describes the sprawling adaptation of Robert Harris' novel of the same name. Cage has been replaced by Ewan McGregor and will be joined by Pierce Brosnan, Kim Cattrall, and others.

"The movie tells the story of a former British Prime Minister, Adam Lang (Brosnan), who is holed up on an island off the Eastern seaboard of the USA in midwinter, writing his memoirs. When his long-standing aide drowns, a professional ghostwriter (McGregor) is sent out to help him finish the book. The anonymous ghostwriter is quickly drawn into a political and sexual intrigue involving Lang's wife, Ruth (Olivia Williams) and his aide (Kim Cattrall). Hanging over Lang is the threat of a war crimes trial and a mysterious secret from his past that threatens to jeopardize international relations."

As you probably caught, along with Polanski behind the camera and the page, we'll be seeing the now powerhouse cast of Ewan McGregor (taking over for Nic Cage), Pierce Brosnan, Kim Cattrall, Tom Wilkinson, Jim Belushi, and Olivia Williams in front of the camera. I really can't express my excitement for this project enough. I love Roman Polanski. He is a modern day master, deservedly on the same level as the likes of Scorsese, Spielberg, Coppola, and Scott. He's an auteur to the highest degree. And it's great to see him returning to what first made him so great.

Exclusive Brosnan interview "The Greatest"

Brosnan interview " The Greatest"

Pierce Brosnan may tell you that singing with Meryl Streep in Mama Mia was intimidating, but in his latest movie, The Greatest, that just premiered at Sundance to rave reviews, the Irish actor goes places, emotionally, he has never gone before, playing a grief-stricken father opposite Susan Sarandon.

In this exclusive interview, Brosnan talks about the challenges he had preparing for this role and the conscious decision he made not to have in family around during filming. He talked one-on-one to Paul Fischer in Park City.

Question: Did this film come to you as an actor first and then as a producer? Or were they both kind of – synchronized?

Brosnan: They came to Irish DreamTime as producing, acting. And Bo said, “Read this.” And I read it, and I thought it was wonderful, then I threw it under the bed, and I said, “I just – let it lie there.” Literally put it under the bed. I have a little house, out and away. I didn’t really want to go there, just because it was so well-founded by Shana, and the emotions of it. And then Bo kept on at me, saying, “Read it again. Read it again.” And I read it again. I said, “All right, let’s meet with Shana and Lynette, the producer.” And I said, “Okay. Let’s go ahead, let’s do it.”

Question: Was this, in some ways, the most intimidating character you’ve had to play for a while? I mean, I know that Mamma Mia had a different sense of intimidation about it, but in terms of getting into a character, the acting side of it. Where you had to go to places where you haven’t really been for a while.

Brosnan: Well, I haven’t played this emotional register since I was really a young actor. I mean, I’ve steered away from it, in some respects, and taken an easier road. And also, I haven’t been really offered them. So that’s the great thing about having your own company. You get offered these pieces like The Matador, or Evelyn. There was enough of my own life history in there as a father, to explore this character. I know a little bit about grief.

Question: I was going to ask you. I mean, you’ve had it rough.

Brosnan: We all have it rough one way or the other, at some point.

Question: Did you reflect on that time in your life, in order to play the grief?

Brosnan: You certainly use your life’s history of pain. There’s enough pain in there to draw upon. And it was also in the writing, too. When writing like this comes along, it taps in there pretty easily. And then your casting. You begin to cast, and you look – I call Susan up. And I say, “Look. I hear that you like this.” I left a message on her machine, and I said, “I love it. I’m gonna do it, come hell or high water. And I don’t know what you’re doing over the summer, but why not?” And she called me back the next day, and she said, “You got me with ‘why not?’” So once Susan was on board, she is such a – such a talent. And fearless. Then y begin to put the cast together. Carey Mulligan’s screen test was beautiful. So when you’re with great actors, then you get a lot. You get a lot back. Then you just have to prepare yourself emotionally. And it’s – ironically, the first scene we shot, the very first day of shooting, and my very first day, was my breakdown sequence at the bed. That was it. And there was no way around it. I said, “Hey, guys. Come on, give me a break here. You know, I haven’t swam in these waters in a long time.” So – there was no way around it. You know, when you’re on a small budget, and small time restraint. We had to shoot that day, there and then. It was the only day we could get the hospital.

Question: How do you leave something like this behind at the end of the work day? Do you just look forward to going back and spending time with your own family, and reminding yourself that –

Brosnan: Well, work like this is best done alone and I was away from the family. It’s sometimes better to be by yourself. It’s much more productive, when you’re doing something like this.

Question: Was that very reflective for you?

Brosnan: Yeah. You reflect. You become very solitary about it. And, you know, you have your journal, and you have your art, and paint, and you have your music, guitar, or whatever. And you have all those tools at hand, and your music, and your hotel room. And just – it was in New York City, I adore. So it gave me time to be by myself and walk in the park, and think about this bad [INAUD], and grace. And just – live the part.

Question: Do you see this film as being a film about healing, as well as about grief?

Brosnan: I think it’s a study on grief, but it’s definitely about rebirth, and definitely about healing. It’s about that. It’s unabashedly about grief. I mean, the sequence in the limo. The accident, and the scene in the limo, the hammer drops there for the audience. And you are with this family. You’re with this mother and father and son, and their grief.

Question: Now when the camera is close up on you, there is a distinct feeling that everything you’re saying, you’re saying in your face. How difficult is it for you to do silence, as an actor?

Brosnan: Hopefully you’ve got an inner life going. Hopefully, you have something there. You’re present, in the piece. And I don’t know how to talk about it, really.

Question: Is it a difficult process? Do you intellectualize it? Or is it very instinctive for you?

Brosnan: It’s really instinctive. I’m not very good at discussing it. And, you know, we had a week of rehearsals. And Susan is a very articulate lady, and she could talk on any subject. I’m much quieter. And Carey was very articulate. The director, Shana, is very bright and articulate. I find it very hard to express myself. I can do it, I hope. But I’ve never been good at talking about it, really. I can talk about it up to a point. But thenif it’s good, if it’s on the page, let me do it. Let me move it. Let me get up and act it.

Question: Does this encourage you to want to go now, for things that really get you to act in ways that you’ve never had a chance to do?

Brosnan: Yes. Yes. You know, I wish I’d done it sooner. But I hadn’t. I came to America, and I did Remington and I should have probably explored the avenues of drama. But I kind of coasted on a nice plateau.

Question: Well, Bond is something that obviously gave you opportunities that you would never have, perhaps, had.

Brosnan: Yeah. The Bond franchise was brilliant timing. And was – I’m forever grateful to play that role, and to be part of that coterie of men, that small club. And, you know, from that, it allowed me to create Irish DreamTime, and make my own movies, which wouldn’t necessarily come my way. Like The Matador, or like this film, The Greatest.

Question: What’s your next project? Do you know?

Brosnan: With Marleen Gorris, it’s called Heaven and Earth and I’m going off to South Africa, to do this film, set in 1826, about the first Governor of Capetown. It’s a true story about Lord Charles Somerset, who falls in love with his doctor. And then I’m going to work with Mr. Roman Polanski on The Ghost.

Question: And what’s happening with Topkapi?

Brosnan: We are full steam ahead. Full steam ahead. If we do not have it by this year, then we shall just say we gave a best effort. But Mary Parent is a magnificent supporter of the piece. Mr. Paul Verhoeven is still with us as a director and we have great executives over there at MGM now, who are passionate to make this film. So, we have a fabulous writer.

Question: Were you surprised that the biggest film you’ve starred in since James Bond was a musical?

Brosnan: Yes. Yes. I would never have guessed that, in a million years. But it was a great film to be a part of. but for me, I just love the world of independent filmmaking, going off and making these pictures. And if 12 people see it, then so be it. But just to make movies – it’s great if something like this comes along, and possibly can have a high profile.

Question: I know I’m not the only one who cried so much during The Greatest..

Brosnan: It’s good to cry. It’s good to cry. I mean, it’s great to laugh, but it is great to cry, because there’s so much pain in us all, that to connect to something like this, it’s good.

Question: Is this the best time for you in your life, personally and professionally? Are you having the best time in your life?

Brosnan: I’ve had a great time. I’ve had a great time all the way through this life of acting. I’ve loved every moment of it. Everything I’ve done, I’ve enjoyed. Whether they’ve hated it, criticized it, never saw it. I – just that I got to work and make a living, and create a life for my wife and children.

Question: How do you remain so nice?

Brosnan: I don’t know. I don’t know. I have no idea. I just like people, and I love what I do and, you know, you just keep showing up.

Question: Do you still live in Hawaii?

Brosnan: We’ve been living out there, yeah. We live in Kauai. We’re up there, but we’re back in Malibu now. We have to. The boys have got to go to school, and stuff like that. I’ve got to pay attention to some of these pictures going on I’m trying to do. And it’s very hard to do it from over there.

Video " première the Greatest"

"première the Greatest @ sundance

"The greatest destined for Greatness

Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan's The Greatest screened twice over the weekend at Sundance, and however overcooked the dead-son weepie feels, we can't argue with multiple standing ovations.

Brosnan in particular, who plays the patriarch of a family devastated by the death of their teenage son in an automobile accident, was singled out for demonstration of audience affection, prompting those at Saturday morning's screening from their seats for an ovation that lasted maybe 15 seconds but felt like forever in the usually subdued early-morning setting. Sarandon and director Shana Feste felt the love as well, along with young co-stars Carey Mulligan, Johnny Simmons and Zoe Kravitz. We've been to a lot of public screenings over the years and seen and heard a lot of pushover audiences go nuts for film. This was one of those once- or twice-a-fest scenes where you could almost smell 600 people at the Racquet Club losing their shit. People love this movie.

But why? Brosnan (who also produced) is out of his depths as Allen Brewer, a mathematics professor maintaining his stiff upper lip while wife Grace (Sarandon) melts down completely following their son Bennett's fatal car wreck. Allen's determination to hold the family together is meant to reinforce his stone wall blocking grief, but in the presence of the more genuinely whacked Grace — who wakes up crying and spends months, in hopes of some closure, reading to the comatose driver who struck her son's car — it never feels like more than a high-stakes mourn-off punctuated by convenient expository fights, loving plunges into the ocean, etc.

It was a mindfuck for Sarandon, and the emotional imbalance shows in the parts of her performance not drugged within an inch of their life by Feste's potent script bromides.

"I have to admit that when I read it, it was so eccentric and there were a lot of things I didn't realize — until we actually started doing it —how difficult it was," she told the audience after the screening. "That was my bad. There are some actors who say they can never remember their real names when they're filming. I can never remember my character's name. When I go home to my kids, I completely leave it behind. I found on the days when we did some of the very, very emotional scenes that you have to hold on to for eight or 10 hours, my body chemistry actually changed. I was really shocked about how I smelled and the person I became. It was really horrible. That was the first time I realized that kind of impact when you imagine those things; your body can't tell the difference between what's imaginary and what's real."

So how did Sarandon and the others get through the 25-day shoot? "The cast was really, really fun and loving," she said. "It was a very happy set; sometimes I think we overcompensated. I think the two funniest sets I've ever been on were Dead Man Walking and Lorenzo's Oil. Explain that."

Yet there are two reasons to see The Greatest: Mulligan and Simmons, playing Bennett's pregnant girlfriend and messed-up little brother respectively, both extraordinary and nothing short of sincere in navigating the dynamics of their own grief. We'll get to this later today (and later this week in a little more depth), but Mulligan, whose Greatest and An Education performances had hype-within-the-hype momentum accompanying them before the festival even started, is an insanely vivid talent whose relationship with Allen Brewer is the only thing that salvages Brosnan's own performance; her retelling to him of meeting Bennett on their last day of school is devastating. At 23, and with little on her resume besides 2005's Pride and Prejudice and some British TV, she already improves everyone around her. Simmons, meanwhile, was also one of the only redeeming things about The Spirit, portraying the hero as a lovesick young man. His responsibility to parse his love/hate relationship with his mythologized brother refines that heartbreak here

The Greatest ; story

Crying your eyes out at the movies used to be commonplace. But the difficulty of affecting a contemporary audience emotionally demonstrates how much respect a work like The Greatest engenders: it is an enormously moving, intelligent exploration of pain and grieving, a film that will touch you and stay with you.
The death of their teenage son, Bennett, in a car crash is almost too much for the Brewer family to bear, not just because his was a life of such promise but also because the impact of his death unleashes the turmoil that was just beneath the surface of their lives. His mother becomes obsessed and can’t let go; his father, in turn, can’t face it at all; and his brother’s secondary status is magnified and entrenched. And when Bennett’s girlfriend appears, the family must come to grips with circumstances that complicate their loss even further. An ensemble film that is the debut of Shana Feste, a particularly talented young filmmaker, this sensitive and heartbreaking feature showcases Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan at their best and launches a career for young actress Carey Mulligan that is certain to be impressive. This is one of the standout works of this Festival and is as fine a debut as we can present.
