Actor Rufus Sewell stars as Prince Andrew in the Netflix movie, Scoop
The 55-year-old actor put on easy prosthetics to look less handsome
This film includes the very famous interview of the Duke of York with Emily Maitlis on Newsnight
In the Netflix film called Scoop, actor Rufus Sewell plays the role of Prince Andrew. The 55-year-old actor will take on the role to reprise the Duke of York’s famous interview with Emily Maitlis on Newsnight. Only, the Mirror reports that the actor opted for facial prostheses in order to look less handsome. As for the role of Emily Maitlis, it is Gillian Anderson who plays it. Recall that this interview took place in November 2019. It focused specifically on the relationship of Prince Andrew, 62, with billionaire and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
At the realization, we will find Philip Martin, who had also worked on The Crown. “Briskly, immersive and cinematic, I want to bring the audience into the jaw-dropping sequence of events leading up to Prince Andrew’s interview,” Philip Martin said. “Telling the story of a quest for answers, in a world of speculation and diverse memories. It is a film about power, privilege and different perspectives, and how, whether in palaces sparkling or in hi-tech newsrooms, we judge what is true.”
Prince Andrew: an interview described as atrocious and disastrous
This new Netflix movie is based on the memoir of former Newsnight producer Sam McAlister. This book, Scoops: Behind The Scenes of the BBC’s Most Shocking Interviews, highlights the efforts of breakthrough women at Buckingham Palace to get the scoop. Recall that this Newsnight interview was watched by more than 1.7 million viewers. Moreover, she received the Scoop of the Year award at the Royal Television Society Awards in 2020. Basically, the appearance of Prince Andrew was to dispel doubts about his relationship with Epstein. Only, it had the opposite effect.
