Hayley is looking gorgeous on the cover of Town & Country’s Autumn issue! It will be available on newsstands from this Thursday. I’ve added several outtakes & the cover to the gallery. A small snippet from the interview is posted below.

“One day, Rabbit and Piglet were sitting outside Pooh’s front door,” begins Chapter Seven of The House at Pooh Corner.

It is almost a century since AA Milne first began writing the tales of a Boy and his Bear, but on this sunny morning, it is as though time has stood still. Here are a real rabbit and an excitable pink piglet, accompanied by their handlers, sitting outside the front door of the selfsame ancient, higgledy-piggledy house where the books were written. A short stroll away through the flower-filled garden stands a statue of a pensive, bob-haired Christopher Robin and a sundial bearing the worn and mossy outlines of Pooh and his friends; go a little further into the woods that begin at the edge of the lawn, and you will find Poohsticks Bridge, as immortalised in EH Shepard’s illustrations. To add to the magic, Town & Country has also recruited the modelling services of a magnificently Tiggerish cat and a delightfully gloomy-looking pair of miniature donkeys…

Last year’s biopic Goodbye Christopher Robin was undoubtedly thought-provoking; but for those captivated by the joyful innocence of Milne’s books or indeed the subsequent Disney cartoon, it offered a little too much insight, with its portrayal of an exploited and bullied Christopher Robin alienated from the parents – and indeed, from the teddy bear – that made him famous. Fort­unately, Disney’s new excursion into the Pooh-niverse, Christopher Robin, promises to rekindle the childlike wonder of the stories. In this fantasy comedy-drama, our hero (played by Ewan McGregor) has become a workaholic who has no time for his wife and daughter. Only the combined efforts of his childhood toys, brought to life by CGI, can restore him to his old playful self.

Hayley Atwell co-stars as his wife Evelyn, which is why she and I have been closeted together in a car for the past two hours, driving from her flat in Chelsea to this hidden corner of East Sussex that is the wellspring of the Pooh phenomenon. “It’s amazing how universal it is,” Atwell reflects. “There’s a charm and innocence to it, and every new generation seems to love it.”

All the same, making the film seems to have been less idyllic than one might have imagined. Atwell explains that she had to shoot each CGI scene three times, firstly addressing a stuffed toy, then a headless grey version of the same toy – “you feel like you’re suddenly in a Guillermo del Toro film, it’s quite sinister” – and finally, delivering her lines to a pole with a light on the end of it, while actors hiding in the bushes shouted out the res­ponses. “But when you have spent three years in drama school being a tree and the colour blue and manifesting the element of fire, you just throw yourself into it,” Atwell concludes with a philosophical laugh.

Anyway, she enjoys stretching herself. “I want to be good; and part of that is to be challenged and to work with people who are better than me, to work with material that makes me think, ‘I don’t know how to do that.’”

How exciting!! Last night, Hayley revealed on her instagram account a first look at her role in the upcoming drama The Long Song. So now we know why she dyed her hair! Here’s some more information on the series and the first promotional still via Hayley’s instagram post:

Set during the final days of slavery in 19th century Jamaica, the story follows the strong-willed, young slave July (Tamara Lawrance) on a plantation owned by her odious mistress Caroline Mortimer (Atwell). When a charming new arrival to the island, Robert Goodwin (Jack Lowden), becomes the new overseer, July and Caroline are both intrigued by his seemingly revolutionary determination to improve the plantation for the slaves and mistress alike.

During a time of social unrest and turmoil, this powerful story is told from July’s perspective as she looks back over her life; the tone is funny, defiant and indomitable. It’s a story about the injustices that humans inflict upon each other and the unexpected ways in which people’s humanity sometimes overrules their prejudices.
Three hundred years of slavery finally came to a chaotic end on the British-ruled Caribbean island of Jamaica in 1838. It is a shameful and rarely-acknowledged part of British colonial history. And though Abolition may have been the first step on the road to racial equality, it is a very long road and one upon which we still travel today.
But far from being a harrowing tale of violence and misery that one might expect from such a history, The Long Song is in fact a story of love, hope, passion, survival and determination, full of insight and humour. The Long Song novel was shortlisted for the 2010 Man Booker Prize and longlisted for the 2010 Orange Prize. It was the recipient of the 2011 Walter Scott Prize.
