Hayley Atwell On Playing Peggy Carter in Captain America TFA

Speaking to The Scotland Herald, the actress discusses playing the female lead in Joe Johnston's upcoming Cap movie, as well as partying with her co stars and reveals that she has signed on for future films...

The cast and crew of Captain America are currently taking a break from filming at Sheperton Studios and doing some more PR for the film. In an interview with the Herald about both Captain America and Atwell's next project, the 4 part Any Human Heart, she talks about what its like playing Peggy Carter..

“I likened her character to that famous Ginger Rogers quote. She can do everything Captain America can do, but backwards and in high heels. She’s an English soldier through and through, although she always looks fabulous. She might stand there with a machine-gun shooting Nazis, but she’s obviously gone to the loo beforehand and applied a bit of lipstick. She doesn’t need to be rescued. That’s exciting to me – her strength.”

Atwell also reveals that she shares a lot of screen time with Tommy Lee Jones, who plays Colonel Chester Philips..

“We do a lot of scenes together. He’s lovely. He sat there in silence, then said [Atwell adopts Jones’ gravelly voice]: ‘D’you like opera?’ I said no, so he sat there talking to me about opera for an hour, then writing lists of books I have to read and films I have to see.”

The cast have all apparently been hanging out and boozing it up! Good for the on screen chemistry in any movie..

“Chris Evans invited us all to the Scott Pilgrim Vs The World premiere, and that ended up being a night of drinking and party games back at Chris’s house. Stanley Tucci loves his food, so he’s very proud of taking us to good restaurants and explaining the art of Italian cooking and fine wines, and through him we met Emily Blunt and her circle of friends, because everyone in this business knows each other. But I’ve also been having 5am starts every day, so I’ve been careful about when and how often I go out so it doesn’t affect the work, because I’m not a morning person.”

So how will Atwell deal with the boost to her acting/celeb profile that will undoubtedly happen thanks to major role in such a high profile movie..

“It’s hard to prepare because you don’t know what will happen, but I’m not scared of it. I’m open to whatever comes my way and hope I’ve got the tools to deal with it. I’ve certainly got enough people kicking me up the arse, my Glaswegian cousins for one. They say, ‘You looked rubbish on TV last night,’ or, ‘What were you thinking?’ They’re brutal. But when they like something it’s probably good.”

Atwell also reveals to the news paper that although she has signed on for any(potential)future movies, she is unsure if Peggy Carter will make another appearance. Lets hope the movie is as good as we all hope and then we will no doubt be seeing Miss Atwell, and Miss Carter again.
