Michael Fassbender interview & a Mock Poster for Jane Eyre

I wanted to share this lovely mock poster for Jane Eyre, created so skillfully by kf-creations!! Thanks kiteflier for allowing me to post it here! Love it!

In Michael Fassbender's interview with Jo Ellison of Vogue, there is mention of working with Mia Wasikowska in Jane Eyre..."If Fassbender is comfortable with his apparent overnight fame, it's because it's been a long, long time in the making. Having dropped out of drama college as a 20-year-old, he spent the best part of a decade struggling to get the small breaks before landing his golden ticket."

Fassbender: “The wilderness years…well, I was working. I mean, God, there are people in the wilderness who are really in the wilderness. [My life] was very sporadic; you know - a guest spot on Holby City. Six episodes on something here or there. Working behind a bar. A lot of thinking should I go home. And I made a balls of soooo many auditions.”

Talent is a very small percent of success - there are massively talented people out there who will never be seen on screen or on stage. People always go on about talent, but you’ve got to have the chance; meet the person who will work with you, and with the script that just suits you. Timing is massive.”

[Fassbender] may argue that his process is boring and prosaic, but Mia Wasikowska paints a different picture. "To work with someone like Michael is to have an ally and friend," she says. "From the beginning I felt fiercely supported by him. He brings with him a worldliness that informs his performances, a depth of emotion that is both raw and beautiful, and an infectiously cheeky energy that would lift the whole crew." She talks also of his "honest curiosity," a trait writ large through all his conversations, and his sense of humour. "I had the most incredible fun working with him." The feeling's mutual: "She's phenomenal," he says of the 21-year-old actress. "She taught me so much."

"This year Fassbender will star in no fewer than four films: he plays Jung opposite Viggo Mortensen’s Freud and Keira Knightly in David Cronenberg’s psychoanalytical drama A Dangerous Method; he co-stars in Steven Soderbergh’s Dublin crime caper Haywire (with Ewan McGregor); ... as Mr. Rochester, opposite Mia Wasikowska’s Jane Eyre, in a sinister re-telling of the Bronte classic, directed by Cary Fukunaga. And right now, he’s donning the latex as Ian McKellen’s former alter-ego Magneto in Vaughn’s re-booted X-Men: First Class, filming at Pinewood, and due out this summer."
