A World Exclusive for you here folks! We have a featurette on short film Retrospective which features Charles Dance (Games of Thrones) and Emilia Fox (TV’s Silent Witness) which you can watch below. Check back later today for an exclusive interview with Charles Dance himself.
Directed by Garrick Hamm (The Man Who Married Himself), the film features an all star British cast lead by Charles Dance (‘Game Of Thrones’), Emilia Fox (‘Silent Witness’), Vincent Regan (Snow White And The Huntsman, 300) and Omid Djalili (Sex And The City 2). It follows Jonathan Hoyle (Charles Dance), who has been a war photographer in some of the world’s most troubled places, but it is in London, the night before a retrospective of his life’s work, that he is taken off the street by an armed man. Hoyle is about to learn that his photographs were not without consequences, and whether he survives the night will depend on what exactly he witnessed through his camera’s unflinching eye.
The film is produced by Stephanie Bamberg, John Dodds and longtime Ribeye Films partner, Oliver Swanton, with award winning cinematographer Michael Seresin (Harry Potter, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes) also behind the lens.
Retrospective will be available via Shorts TV and iTunes in December!
For the 3rd year running, a host of big hearted celebrities including Emilia Fox, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, model Suki Waterhouse, American singer and TV personality Kimberly Wyatt and British girl group Little Mix, are lending their support to the ‘Show You Care with the LINDT Bear’ campaign, which sees LINDT pledge to raise £100,000 in aid of BBC Children in Need 2014.
The celebrities have been photographed alongside their signed, ornamental versions of the trademark chocolate LINDT Bear which will go up for auction to raise money for the charity.
Here’s the photo of Emilia and her signed ‘Lindt’ bear:
Since 2012, Lindt has donated £225,000 in aid of BBC Children in Need through the Show You Care campaign. BBC Children in Need supports disadvantaged children and young people across the UK and every penny raised from each signed LINDT Bear will help to make a difference.
The LINDT Team says: “We are thrilled to be supporting BBC Children in Need again this year; it is a fantastic charity which does honourable work. Our loveable chocolate LINDT Bear was launched with resounding success three years ago and we’re sure the celebrity signed versions are going to be just as popular. Get online to support your favourite celebrity and bid for their exclusive, signed LINDT Bear. We wish you the very best of luck in the auction.”
Carrie Green, Head of Corporate Partnerships at BBC Children in Need said: “We are delighted to be working with LINDT again this year. The ‘Show you Care with the LINDT Bear’ campaign is a fantastic way for people to support BBC Children in Need and be in with a chance to win one of the signed LINDT Bears. Every penny raised from this auction will be used to change young lives so we wish bidders the best of luck and thank them for making a difference. ”
To further support the charity, LINDT’s Master Chocolatiers lovingly crafted LINDT Chocolate Bear is on sale now. It’s the perfect way to ‘show you care’ with 10% of profits from sales of the 10g Bear going to BBC Children in Need.
BBC Children in Need Appeal is on Friday, November 14th on BBC One

Yesterday we kicked off our search for the next writing star in our Be A Bestseller competition and, over the next few weeks we’ll be hearing from four celebrities about their favourite novel.
Today, actress Emilia Fox travels to Fowey in Cornwall where her best-loved book, Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, is set.
Here she explains why she loves reading Rebecca.
A few photos which were taken during her visit:
Emilia has been cast in the role of Julia in an TV adaption of J.K. Rowling’s book “The Casual Vacancy“.
Directed by Jonny Campbell, the show is being produced by the BBC. As soon as more details are released I’ll announce them here. Here’s a quick oversight:
The BBC One miniseries, in association with HBO, is an adaptation of JK Rowling’s global bestseller The Casual Vacancy and consists of three one-hour parts. Production begins on 7 July in South West England.
The Casual Vacancy centres on Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the pretty façade, however, is a town at war: rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.
