A Walk Among the Tombstones Review: Liam Neeson Redefines Justice - Movie Fanatic

klstheword:

"Lastly, our A Walk Among the Tombstones review has to highlight the performance by Stevens. Fans of his turn in Downton Abbey will hardly recognize the UK actor as Kristo. He is not a character with whom the audience will have an affinity for. Yet through Steven’s immense talents, we truly want him to find justice. “




Dan Stevens Blows Up ‘Downton’: From Chubby-Cheeked Aristo to Lean, Mean American Psycho

klstheword:

TT: You’re a dad yourself. Has parenthood changed you?

DS: Yeah, it’s been amazing: life-changing, life-enhancing. The multiplication of love in the household is just pure delight.

TT: Do you see yourself in them?

DS: What’s more delightful is that you begin to see themselves in themselves. In the first few months, people say “He’s got your nose, she’s got your eyes.” And none of that really matters in the end because they grow up to be their own little people.

TT: You’re 31. How was turning 30?

DS: I was on stage doing The Heiress on Broadway, and that was a great way to turn 30. I’d like to do more theater here and in London. To get to watch (hisHeiress co-star) Jessica Chastain was a big inspiration. She had trained at Juilliard. She’s a serious actress, done bits and pieces for 10 years, slowly got more interesting roles. Then, suddenly, two of her films were nominated for Academy Awards. It changed her life. I watched her run the Oscars and Golden Globes campaigns with such grace. You hear stories of people behaving in not such a graceful way, but she was very present about what was happening and not getting too overawed by it all.

TT: Are you concerned about not being able to throw the image of Matthew Crawley off?

DS: Not personally. I knew that was a role I had to leave behind. I had the ability to play different roles. I don’t want to throw Matthew off. I’m very proud of that show and role, I’d just like to add to him in audiences’ mind. I don’t want to kill him. He’s already dead once.

TT: You live in New York?

DS: Yes, Brooklyn. I really do like being here. I feel very inspired, it’s a place of great focus and energy. I used to get very upset when I had to leave here. That’s not to say I don’t miss my family and friends back home, but this is a very welcoming city. It’s been very generous to me in terms of doors being opened: theater, film, and web series. I love Brooklyn. I’ve always loved it. As a place, it existed in my imagination long before I ever went there thanks to [Walt] Whitman and [Hart] Crane.
