Schoolgirl Abigail is too young to watch 15-rated movie she stars in.

South Wales Echo (Cardiff, Wales); 4/10/2006

Schoolgirl Abigail Stone is basking in the glory of being a movie star - but can't show off as her friends are too young.

Abigail, 13, beat hundreds of other hopefuls to star alongside Sharpe heartthrob Sean Bean in 15-rated horror The Dark, which was released in cinemas across the country on Friday.

And her under-age pals at Cynffig Comprehensive in Kenfig Hill, near Bridgend, aren't the only ones who are envious.

Abigail said: 'My mum was so jealous - she's got a real crush on him.

'He really is so good-looking up close. In one of the scenes he gives me a big hug and it made me go all dizzy.

'I couldn't believe this huge Hollywood star was hugging me!'

Abigail, of Bridgend, plays a ghost in the film which also stars American actress Maria Bello.

But The Dark has a 15 certificate which means Abigail and her friends are not old enough to see it at the cinema.

She said: 'I saw the film at the Edinburgh premiere. Luckily the film hadn't been classified so I managed to go and see it.

'I didn't find it very scary. But when you know there were 20 people on set and how they put it all together, it takes away all the mystery.'

A spokesman for the film company said: 'Abigail did very well - she's a star in the making.'

Silent Hill Set Visit

*an older article but interesting nonetheless... sorry if this has been posted previously

Silent Hill Set Visit
IGN talks to the cast and steps into the creepy sets of Silent Hill!
by Jeff Otto

February 23, 2006 - There's no beating around the bush, video game movies simply don't have the best reputation. Although some have been financially successful, most have left fans pretty cold in the long run. The initial announcement of a Silent Hill film was met with almost equal excitement and skepticism amongst fans of the popular video game series. When Chrisophe Gans was pegged as director (his previous effort was the cult fan fave Brotherhood of the Wolf), suddenly the video game faithful had hope. The casting of Radha Mitchell, Sean Bean, Laurie Holden and Deborah Kara Unger was met with approval from the fandom at large. Most recently, the promotional posters and the trailers have created a nice buzz for the film. Could Silent Hill be the savior of the video game movie genre? Collapse )

Sean is Sharpe as ever


Sean is Sharpe as ever

HUNKY Sean Bean is happy to leave the "bulls**t" of Hollywood behind to return to his favourite role.

After eight years Sean, 46, is back as the dashing 19th Century swordsman Major Richard Sharpe, in ITV1's Sharpe's Challenge on April 23-24.

Despite roles in a Bond movie and Lord of the Rings, Sean wasn't taken with Tinseltown.

He said: "When I first went, people would promise you things and a lot of it was bulls**t."

"I'm happy to be back as Sharpe. It's the role I'm most proud of."
