30 DECEMBER 2007 - Screwloose

Excerpt from Tony White | If you look hard enough you will see original film footage from a pilot film I once created to promote a movie idea I had… “Screwloose”… a fantasy adventure that embraced Heath Robinson’s life and work. The really astute amongst you will recognize a young David Thewlis playing the role of WHR, prior to his going on to hugely successful acting career, culminating recently as the (coincidentally named) 'Remus Lupin' character in the 2007 "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" movie. The pilot was co-produced by myself and Simon Channing-Williams, esteemed producer of director Mike Leigh. Sadly, I never did get that movie off the ground either, despite such illustrious individuals being part of the production!

14 NOVEMBER 2007 - New Article

Is His Pen Mightier Than the Wand?
David Thewlis doesn't look anything like his most famous cinematic character, Remus Lupin, the lycanthropic Hogwarts wizardry professor from the Harry Potter movies. In fact, shambling down from the L.A. home he shares with his companion, actress Anna Friel -- now a star in her own right with her critically acclaimed new TV series "Pushing Daisies" - and their two - year-old daughter, Gracie, Thewlis bore a much closer resemblance to his formerly most famous film persona, the downtrodden nihilist Johnny from Mike Leigh's 1993 low-life picaresque, "Naked".

There’s always a heavy, and JON POLITO, who plays some version of a tough guy in many Coen brothers films, is puzzled by the terrorizing nihilism of AIMEE MANN and DAVID THEWLIS in “The Big Lebowski.” Like many of California’s cultists, their philosophy has gone from dogma to vengeance.

11 NOVEMBER 2007 - "Star of the Day"

David Thewlis
David Thewlis perches on his seat, jangling with bracelets and hippie-ness. He looks considerably more attractive than his screen roles might suggest: whether that is the raggedy man in "Naked", Professor Lupin in the 'Harry Potter' movies or even the identical twin brothers in the opening episode of "The Street". The latter, his first TV role in a decade, features one archetypal Thewlis mise en scène. We are in a welfare office where rows of workers toil under the eye of a monstrous Orwellian clock. Thewlis' character is screaming down the line at a caller to get a *&%$^ job. It is heart-bursting acting - raw, seemingly unfettered, almost comic - and you realise that in such moments few actors can touch Thewlis. Like in "Naked", where his rage was a howl at the world, he has a knack for nailing desperation.

31 OCTOBER 2007 - Another Interview

March of the Penguin Authors
Actor turned novelist David Thewlis, here with his debut fiction, "The Late Hector Kipling", stayed on the back patio so he could smoke, where he was mostly left alone - typical of the Canadian response to celebrity. I asked him the difference between film parties and literary parties, and he was quick to offer, "At film parties, you can recognize just about every face there. Here, there could be the world's greatest genius behind you and you'd never know it."

Fiction (With a Twist of Lennon)
Actor David Thewlis’ first novel, "The Late Hector Kipling", is a hyper-literate, shockingly funny, and just plain shocking look at vanity, revenge, sex, suicide, death, madness, and murder in the London art world. William Monahan, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "The Departed", knows about all that.

28 OCTOBER 2007 - The Late Hector Kipling Review

'Some sort of drunken collaboration between Feydeau and Dante'. That's how Hector Kipling describes his life at one stage in his narrative. It is an accurate, if overly self-conscious, summary of the flavour of this novel: a blackly comic, farcical descent into a personal hell.

10 SEPTEMBER 2007 - New Interview

Turning His Hand to Novel Writing
David Thewlis, the stringy, rabbit-faced actor, who shot to prominence in Mike Leigh's "Naked", has, in the writing of "The Late Hector Kipling", made a particularly weighty rod for his own back. Set among the sweaty dives of Soho and the pretentious galleries of the East End, the book deals with a young British artist - or should that be Young British Artist? - raised by lower middle-class parents in Blackpool. Thewlis, though he does paint a bit, is not a member of the daub fraternity, but he is from Blackpool and his parents do sound very like Mr and Mrs Kipling. Early on in the book, we find the artist visiting home with his Greek girlfriend. His mum asks incessant questions about his work, while Dad, deaf as a boulder, keeps his eyes on the television.

17 AUGUST 2007 - David Visits 'Thewlis Rox'

Last night, the premiere of ABC's new television show, Pushing Daisies, was hosted at the 'Hollywood Forever Cemetery'. I attended the occasion hoping to congratulate Anna Friel on her brilliant new role, or perhaps catch a glimpse of her strolling by. Anna's family was there to support her, including David and Gracie. After the screening, I walked over to where they were seated and gave David a tap on the shoulder. I was excited when he turned around and I nervously managed to introduce myself representing 'Thewlis Rox.'

David confirmed that he visits our website! David and Anna are both wonderful and I was very honored and overjoyed to have met them at last. I've posted an entry at the discussion board with details of everything that occured at the event, including meeting David and Anna.

David, from the staff members and myself here at 'Thewlis Rox' - We are flattered, grateful, honored and thankful for your kind words and sincerity. Thank you so much for that unforgettable moment and for taking the time to let us know that you visit our website.

Below are a few pictures that were taken at the event. I quickly asked for David's permission if we could re-post them here and he said 'yes'.



Of course, thank you to Dave (administrator of Anna Friel's Official Website) who passed along information to us regarding the event.

14 AUGUST 2007 - The Late Hector Kipling

Art Fiction from David Thewlis
The latest venture into art-world fiction comes from stage and film actor David Thewlis, otherwise known as Professor Lupin in the 'Harry Potter' films. Thewlis' first novel, “The Late Hector Kipling,” published in London last month and due out from 'Simon and Schuster' in the U.S. in November, is described as a "warm and witty novel about the not so warm and witty world of art," with cameos from the likes of 'Gilbert & George', 'Jake and Dinos Chapman', 'Sarah Lucas' and more. "A sick and brilliant read," says Paper magazine senior editor Carlo McCormick.

Source | Art Net.

Synopsis;

Hector Kipling is an artist. He has his health, loving parents, a beautiful girlfriend, good mates, and talent in abundance (or at least, more abundance than most, and certainly more than his friend Kirk, if not quite as much as their other friend, Lenny - although, actually, Hector would argue that while Lenny's received more recognition for his art, most of that recognition is misplaced). What more could he ask for (besides the same level of recognition that Lenny gets, that is)? But once Hector's life starts to unravel, it doesn't take long at all for it to fall completely and irreparably apart. In fact, as Hector discovers, it's amazing just how quickly a life can disintegtrate. From settees to stalkers, con-men to corpses, S&M to the Tate Modern, "The Late Hector Kipling" is a warm and witty novel about the not so warm and witty world of art, and death.

28 MARCH 2007 - David's Novel Completed?

An interview with Anna Friel, translated and posted this morning on her Official Website;

Anna is very discreet about her address book and David, who is about to have his first novel published ("The Late Hector Kipling", a satire about the art world of the YBAs).

No word from David recently regarding the progress of his novel nor the title (which he has confirmed is not entitled, The Man’s A Legend, as previously speculated). However, this book entitled The Late Hector Kipling is available for pre-order through Amazon UK and Amazon and both Websites claim 'David Thewlis' is the author. Additionally, Amazon UK features the novel's cover art;

Congratulations to David on the successful publication of his first novel!

27 MARCH 2007 - Paul Auster on The Inner Life of Martin Frost

The otherworldly film tells the story of a writer, Martin Frost (masterfully played by David Thewlis), who, having just finished a novel, decides to take a vacation at the country home of two friends. In fact, the small cast - Thewlis, Jacob, Imperioli and Sophie Auster - spent so much time rehearsing that filming took only 25 days. And by then, said Auster, “we refined it so much that the script we used is absolutely, 100 percent present in the finished film.”

25 FEBRUARY 2007 - The Inner Life of Martin Frost Summary

Having submitted his manuscript to his publisher, renowned novelist Martin Frost needs to recharge himself in seclusion. He is loaned a place in the country--where his isolation is short-lived. For his second feature film, American novelist and director Paul Auster plays with the character from his 2002 novel, "The Book of Illusion". The incomparable David Thewlis essays the writer looking for peace, and Irene Jacob, Michael Imperioli and Sophie Auster play his unwelcome guests. Without missing a beat in moving from the page to the screen, Auster's serio-comic fantasy narrative remains mysterious, haunting, and enticing.
