Town - Life of Wylie

One scene sees Alice singing Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’ to Mark in their local pub. “When I first read the script that was the scene I loved most because of the dialogue and how free they are with each other. It’s just a really beautiful scene. “But at the same time the singing was going to make it one of the scenes that I was dreading doing. “People don’t just break into song in real life and I had to find a fun way of doing it where it wasn’t like, ‘And now I’m singing a song.’ That was quite a nice challenge. “Andrew and I had a good laugh with it. I was so nervous that I kept forgetting some of the lines. So we managed that by Andrew’s character joining in a little bit. Any time I forgot the lines he’d be there singing along a little with me!” Charlotte already has some musical experience via her group The Flirtinis. “The Flirtinis are very much me and my girlfriends, just a bit of a hobby that we have when we get together now and again, whenever we’re all in the same country. Two of the Flirtinis are American, one of them lives in LA and the other one lives here and in America. But when we’re all together we have a little sing song.” Charlotte was also involved in filming The Town’s bun-­‐throwing ceremony, based on a real life annual event in writer Mike’s home town of Abingdon. “Martin Clunes, who plays the Mayor, got me square in the face at least three times with those hot cross buns,“ she laughs. “I don’t think Martin was deliberately aiming at me. Or maybe he was and I just didn’t realise! Every time I turned around I’d get one in the face. “At one point the crowd rebelled and we all started picking them up and throwing them back at them.” Charlotte plays Caris in a forthcoming Channel 4 adaptation of Ken Follett’s bestseller World Without End. She is also currently filming a role in the new Tom Cruise movie All You Need Is Kill, due to be released in 2014. “I’m really enjoying it. It’s great because it involves a lot of physical training which I’ve never had to do for a project before. So that’s a side that I’m really loving. “The character is very different from anything I’ve done before. And there’s a lot of filming outdoors in this ‘lovely’ weather,” she jokes. “I finish filming in February. “I’ve been very lucky to do all the stuff that I’ve done. It’s been a bit mad but I’ve loved it. And to play so many different characters has been really good fun.” Charlotte’s previous screen credits include: Wuthering Heights, Entity, Easy Virtue, Grand Street, The Take, DCI Banks and Marple. 15
