“Downton Abbey” and “All About Eve” star Lily James covers the March 2019 issue of British Harper’s Bazaar Magazine photographed by Alexi Lubomirski.
On her forthcoming appearance on stage in the West End in a new adaptation of the dark and gripping All About Eve [as Eve]: “I thought, I just want to play the evil bit,” she admits. “But she’s definitely a pathological liar, and there’s a lot of nastiness in her – I can’t wait. It will be good if I can really surprise the audience.”
The tempestuous and insecure Margo is played by Gillian Anderson, James’ co-star in
War & Peace: “She’s a phenomenal actor…When I did the photo-shoot with her for the poster, I thought, ‘I can’t wait to spend time with you!’ I like people who are direct and honest, and she seems funny and she’s classy. But I hope our roles don’t seep into real life. I did hear from someone who worked with Ivo [van Hove, the play’s director] that he encouraged a sense of the character in their real relationships, so I hope it doesn’t become toxic and weird between Gillian and me…”
