Jonny Owen & Vicky McClure talk about their new film Svengali


Thursday 6th March 2014

With the imminent release of new British film, Svengali, we took the chance to talk to the film's stars, Jonny Owen and Vicky McClure about music, film, comedy and more.

“...When Svengali came it wasn't a tick of the box - it was 'this film has it all', it's got comedy it's got drama, there was a romantic edge to it which I really liked as well, and then I heard who was going to be in it and the soundtrack Jonny was talking about - it was a no-brainer...”

Vicky McClure recalls the qualities that attracted her to Svengali in the first part of our interview, in which Jonny and Vicky discuss film-making, soundtracks, Shane Meadows and Fred Perry. 

Svengali, which also stars Martin FreemanMatt Berry and Maxine Peake, goes on general release across the country on 21st March.
