Facebook: I Will Follow You Into the Dark
Just a quick post to mention that there is now under 24 hours left to enter the I Will Follow You Into the Dark giveaway where you can win a ticket for you and a guest to the world premiere screening during the Hollywood Film Festival. Thanks to those of you who have already entered, I’ll be in contact with the winner shortly after the giveaway ends.
If you’re not entering, it would still be great if you would ‘like’ the I Will Follow You Into the Dark Facebook page just as a way of supporting the movie.
Check out Mischa’s cover from the current issue of Volt magazine (issue #12). I’m not sure if its hit newsstands yet, so keep your eyes out. I’m also not sure if/when I’ll be able to get scans
of Mischa’s editorial since I believe the magazine is A3 in size. Challenge! Wishing there was an iPad edition.

The following is an article from the Mayo Advertiser by Kernan Andrews.
While she is best known as a television and film actress, particularly for her role in the iconic noughties’ TV series The OC, Mischa Barton finds the most challenging and rewarding parts to play are in the theatre.
Mischa Barton will be in Castlebar next week where she will star in Solar Theatre’s production of Steel Magnolias which will take to the stage in the Royal Theatre. In many ways, this production, which has been running since September, is a return to her roots, as her career began in theatre, off-Broadway, in the mid-1990s.
With Steel Magnolias about to begin its Mayo run, how did Mischa become involved in the production? “It was a bit last minute really,” Mischa tells me during our Monday afternoon conversation, “but the fact Ben Barnes was directing it swayed me as he is a great director, and the cast is terrific.”
While Mischa is the most high profile cast member, her co-stars will be familiar faces from TV – Anne Charleston (Ouiser Boudreaux in the play) was Madge in Neighbours and more recently Lily Butterfield in Emmerdale; Barbara Brennan, (M’Lynn) has appeared in The Tudors and Veronica Guerin; and Gillian Hanna whose credits include Casualty, Drop The Dead Donkey, Poirot, Brookside, and Mr Nice.
“It was luck that everybody happened to be available as after this we’re all working on other things,” says Mischa, “and we might not get another chance to do this.”
Working with an all-female cast, Mischa admits, is an unusual situation to find herself in. “There are usually some men there to break it up,” she says. “Ben I think was terrified directing an all-female cast. I would have thought they would have had a woman direct it. So it was very brave of him as it’s a lot for a man to take on.”

The following is an article from the Belfast Telegraph by Maureen Coleman.
Hollywood star Mischa Barton talks about her Ulster heritage, why she loves the stage and how she’s never been happier.
Mischa Barton is one difficult lady to pin down. Hollywood’s golden girl, who arrived in Dublin for her Irish stage debut several weeks ago, has managed to give me the slip since then. First she was in rehearsals for her role of Shelby Eatenton in Robert Harling’s bitter-sweet play Steel Magnolias, then came almost two weeks of shows at the Gaiety Theatre.
Just as I’ve given up on the elusive star of The Sixth Sense and The OC, she calls me up, late one evening. She’s just arrived in Cork, where the play is running until tonight, and is exhausted, hungry but eager to chat. The fact that her mother Nuala hails from Northern Ireland has contributed to her agreeing to this interview. It also helped that the last time Mischa was here, the Belfast Telegraph splashed her across the front page, when she rocked up at the premiere of Closing The Ring, dressed head to toe in Northern Irish fashion.
“You’ve interviewed me before, right?” she asks me immediately. I tell her I have, back in 2007. She was in Belfast to promote Richard Attenborough’s wartime romance, Closing The Ring, in which she co-starred alongside legendary actress Shirley MacLaine.
“And I was on the front page of the Belfast Telegraph too,” she laughs. “My family would have been so proud of that.”
