Hello friends, I come bearing casting news, an update on a film project from last year (that was only briefly mentioned in a My Week article back in July), and an R-rated trailer.one.
Olivia's been cast in the tv series, Manhattan
. It's a television drama about the building of the first atomic bomb in New Mexico. She plays Liza Winters, a "brilliant botanist who accompanies her husband (John Benjamin Hickey) to the secret birthplace of the atomic bomb, where she notices the unsettling changes in the environment." Her character is said to have a "complicated" past.
It is the second scripted drama from WGN America and is set for a July 2014 premiere.
This series is probably the show that was referred to in this My Week
She's set to appear in, Magpie
, a short directed by Stephen Fingleton. It is a prequel of sorts to Fingleton's movie, "The Survivalist", and it serves as, "an introduction to his harsh, post-apocalyptic world as well as a selection of the characters that inhabit The Survivalist."three. Salting the Battlefield
, which was briefly mentioned albeit unspecified, in the My Week article Olivia Williams on a tale of two auteurs
was previewed by David Hare last February 11th. It is the third installment of the Worricker Trilogy starring Bill Nighy. She plays Belinda Kay, an editor for the Independent.four.
Here is the red band trailer for Sabotage. There are new shots of Olivia and it's looking really really badass. This is the R-Rated trailer, which means a lot of blood, bare breasts and coarse language. And helluva lot of death spoilers.
