Test Text1 plain Welcome back with clive owen and andrea riseborough in the new movie "shadow dancer." A world of suspicion. We welcome you both. That's pretty succinctly said and well put. That's got to be a nice phrase for you both having worked on the film. Thank you. That's good. Clive, you play a british agent. If you could try to explain what you're trying to get andrea's character to do. Well, the film begins with co l colette trying to put a bomb on a train. She's go to prison for a very long time or comes to work for us. That's the beginning of the movie. She goes back into her hard-core i.R.A. World and we're supposed to monitor her from there. You have this incredibly tense, dangerous situation. Yeah, and what a choice your character is forced to make and your scenes are so heart wrenching. Not a lot of words and that was your doing. I can't say it was all me. But I was kind of the carrier pigeon. I was bringing little snippets of information back if belfast because we were filming in dublin which is almost -- a wonderful place to film but unhelpful for what we were trying to achieve because we were trying to stay I our belfast bubble. One of the pieces of information that was useful that I brought back is that the strength she had was her silence and originally she talks a lot in the script so it was really valuable we pared it down. I want to show everybody a clip. You're having a secret meeting but there's clearly a trust issue. Take a look. What? We've been through this before. Listen to me. You've got a job to do. I dropped -- you've got to pull yourself together otherwise this won't work. You've made your choice. I'm scared. I'm scared. No, you're not. That's not going to happen. I'm not going to let that happen. The twists and turns begin. It is incredible. Clive, I know you were in belfast during this time in THE '90s. What was it like? Yeah, I was doing a play. I toured and went there for a week right in the middle of the trouble. It was a very different place. It was very scary and there were soldiers on the street, helicopters at night. It was -- you think back and it's not that long ago. It was a war zone literally. You came on to the film after andrea had already been up and running. What was that like to sort of jump in? Well, I was actually sent the script and I wasn't going to work. I was going to take time off and the script was so good and so compelling and so well written that I spoke to james and I jumped straight from the thing I was doing and joined them in dublin. Jam martha shall and the incredible director. And I thought this was interesting. You have a connection on so many ways, grew up in similar area of london, same schooling and also both worked with madonna about to get your impressions. True. That's true. That's right, yeah. And you, of course, she chose to be the lead in her film last year. "Nwe." Your impressions. Mine was much shorter. Mine was seven minutes long. I thought -- impact. It was very funny. Guy ritchie directed it, as well, yeah, so it was a funny thing. Had a good time with it. And you, what was it like working with the great madonna? It was a fantastic time. I was -- I was so proud to be part of that movie and it was a wonderful character to play. Well, it's great to talk to both of you. Andrea and clive, always great to see you all. Thanks for getting up early. Everybody, do check out "shadow dancer" opening in theaters this friday.
