Reverie @ NYCC Is Bleeding Cool

artwork_002Reports from the New York Comic Con event of the previous weekend are starting to spring up.

As we know the cast of the new ABC drama series Reverie attended the ‘con’, took part in a discussion panel after a screening of the pilot, and also conducted individual interviews with members of the press.

The Bleeding Cool website has an article by Adi Tantimedh who, after a explanation of Reverie‘s premise describes it thus:

This is one of the more ambitious shows this season. It’s not another cop show or another soldier show. It’s about tragedy, loss, and empathy. It’s about the desire to escape from the trauma and sadness of life into a dream world, and the need to connect with humanity and emotion.

Adi goes on to give quotes from each main actor (Sarah Shahi, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jessica Lu, Dennis Haysbert), creator Mickey Fisher, and producer Tom Szentgyorgi.  Of course Kathryn is there too.  Here is what she said about Reverie and her character Monica Shaw from the Department Of Defense:

I thought this show is a beautiful execution of a psychological thriller within this emotional landscape in the world of virtual reality. It’s not like a typical Sci Fi show where the emotions come later. It’s a tangible take on the power of virtual reality. And nobody does it better than Amblin. My character lives in a grey area of Light and Dark in the way the government uses things for their own purposes.

You can read Adi Tantimedh’s full piece HERE and a follow-up article on how the show is about finding a human connection HERE.

Kathryn In Extended Resurrecting The Champ Interview

dvd_cover_001It’s 10 years ago this month that the film Resurrecting The Champ was first released in cinemas in selected parts of the world.  Most of the rest of the world didn’t get to see it for months, or even years, later.

Ten years!  That’s crazy!

RTC is about a struggling newspaper sports reporter (Josh Hartnett as Erik Kernan) looking for a story that will make his name.  He then stumbles upon a homeless man (Samuel L Jackson only referred to as ‘Champ’) as who claims to be a long-thought dead boxing legend.  Kathryn (you know, from Cold Case) plays Joyce Kernan, wife of Erik.  She’s a successful journalist working at the same newspaper and mother to his child.  Joyce is a few years older than Erik, which appears to be the cause of some issues for him.

Kathryn’s role in the film is relatively small but, as is often the case, it is crucial to the development of lead character as the story progresses

2007 puts us before Josh found his Penny, Dreadful or otherwise and Samuel L was yet to become the Marvel character Nick Fury in a 1001 projects.  Or star in an unrelated film called Fury (aka The Samaritan).  Dakota Goyo, the actor who played the Kernan’s son and the lucky so-and-so that got a red carpet hug from Kathryn at the première :-x, was 8 at the time.  Since then he’s starred as the son of Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly in the robot fighting movie Real Steel, and sort of crossed paths with SLJ again as he was the young Thor in the first of that branch of the Marvel universe.

Video!But enough of the ‘where are they now’.  Today I’ve added an extended video interview Kathryn did for promotional material to the KM UK Gallery.  A shorter section had been posted before.  It is her answers to a series of questions describing Joyce and her role in the plot.  Broadcasters often use segments of these videos when reviewing films.

As we’ve come to expect from Kathryn she gives detailed explanations in simple terms and has clearly worked hard to understand her character.  Working previously with director Rod Lurie (Deterrence and The Contender), who once suggested Kathryn was his muse, most have helped with that getting that deeper knowledge.

The Perfect Guy – Kathryn Interview

interview_soundbites_036Welcome back Kathryn.  It’s great to see that smile again.

We are only a just over a week away from the release of the new thriller movie The Perfect Guy in cinemas in the US of A.

interview_soundbitesThe stars Sanaa Lathan (Boss) and Michael Ealy (The Following), and to a lesser extent Morris Chestnut (Nurse Jackie), have been hitting the publicity trail, with various interviews and appearances.  Not surprisingly, based on her small role, Kathryn has not been involved so far.

However, Kathryn has, along with the other key cast members, done a small interview as part of the released publicity material, or Electronic Press Kit, common for modern releases.  And we’ve got it for you today.

In the Gallery you’ll now find a copy of the video and a set of screencaps taken from it (example above).

The Coin On Set Interview With Kathryn – Update

exclusive_interview_screenshot_001This is a nice little surprise.

We’re in danger of becoming this site dedicated to the short film The Coin and a Fabien Martorell appreciation society, but that’s OK.

Today we have to thank Fabien for posting a video taken on the set of The Coin when it filmed back in the summer of 2012.

The video, hosted on Vimeo here, sees Kathryn explaining her reasons for taking on the role of the under stress mother.  Christopher Lloyd also makes a brief appearance.

It is so nice to see Kathryn on screen again like this, even if it is so brief.

Update: A copy of the video and screencaps from it have been added to the Gallery.  The video page includes a transcript of what Kathryn says to help any one wanting to translate it into their native language.

Kathryn @ Toyota Pro/Celeb Race Day – April 2007

toyota_race_day_26Oops!  I’m sure that’ll polish right out!  😯

That was from the practise day so no worries.

Three weeks after the training it was race day.  On this day (14th Apr) in 2007 (it was a Sunday that year) Kathryn took part in the Toyota Pro/Celebrity race in aid of the Racing For Kids charity that supports local children’s hospitals.  Last year we brought you a photo of Kathryn and George Lucas visiting one of those hospitals that receives funding a few days before the race.

As well are four more photos from the weekend we have two videos.  One is from the practise day.  The second a longish highlights show covering the race.  Kathryn features multiple times in both videos so try and watch them all the way through.  Find it all in the KM UK Gallery.

Thanks to Jan Wagner at the Automatters website for allowing KM UK to post their photos.

In the race Kathryn finished a creditable 13th out of the 17 taking part.  Not bad on her first ever race.  Dave Mirra (BMX racer) won outright despite coming up through the field from 30 seconds behind with the other Pros Bucky Lasek (X Games winner) and Scott Kelly (drag racer).  Tennis legend and returnee to the event, Martina Navratilova, was 2nd (1st celeb) and Joshua Morrow (The Young And The Restless) was third.  George Lucas continued to disappoint in spectacular fashion by crashing out and taking innocent victim Annamarie Dean (charity fund raiser) with him.  Kathryn and Emily Proctor (CSI: Miami) weren’t able to put the first part of their evil plan into play.  We don’t know if the managed the second part.  Watch the video to find out more.

The 2014 version of the event happened yesterday (13th April) and was won by returnee Brett Davern, who finished 2nd last year.  Brett will be known to Cold Case viewers as Lilly Rush’s half-brother Finn Cooper.  Currently Brett can be seen in the TV show Awkward. (with a full-stop).
