SciFi Wire’s John Sullivan talked to Sienna Guillory, who’s in Vancouver, filming the Virtuality pilot. She talked about what atrracted her to the project, along with it’s connection to her upcoming film, Inkheart.
Sienna Guillory, who co-stars in the upcoming fantasy film Inkheart, told SCI FI Wire that the role fulfilled a longstanding ambition to work with Helen Mirren.
Guillory praised the film’s “extraordinary ensemble cast” in an interview in Vancouver, Canada, last week, where she is working on the Fox SF pilot Virtuality. “Working with Helen Mirren has always been my dream,” she said. “She inspired me to be an actor when I was 6 and I saw her in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
Inkheart is based on the first volume in a trilogy of young-adult fantasy novels by German author and illustrator Cornelia Funke. “It’s about the concept that certain people have the gift to read out loud,” said Guillory, “and when they read out loud, the things in the book come to life.”
