Matilda the Musical is a film adaptation of the Tony and Olivier award-winning musical. Matilda which tells the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a sharp mind and a vivid imagination, dares to take a stand to change her story with miraculous results.
We chatted to the excellent Andrea Riseborough who has an impressive array of films that includes the Tom Cruise starrer, ‘Oblivion’, director Alejandro G Inarritu’s ‘Birdman’, the hilariously quirky Brit comedy’ Mindhorn‘, horror film, ‘Possessor’ and the recent all star film, ‘Amsterdam’. In Matilda the Musical she plays Matilda’s mother Mrs Wormwood alongside Stephen Graham as Mr Wormwood a pair of grotesque nouveau riche parents with little regard for their own daughter.
Andrea told us about the fantastic costumes and wigs she got to wear throughout the film as well as keeping a straight face when Stephen Graham is wearing a set of gleaming dentures and how being horrible on screen to her screen faughter was very different to how it was off screen
