10 YEARS ONLINE!
10 years ago today this website was started. I had no idea that it would last this long, but I want to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has visited it and supported the site during that time – particularly to Sa!
Hopefully I will be able to get a brand new look up at the site to celebrate, but until then – Happy Birthday to us!
Thanks to Tayna for informing us, view the image below.
With a big thanks to Sa and Tayna for bringing this to my attention and sharing the photos, we know that Rachel attended a dinner that fashion company Whistles held for the launch of it’s newest menswear range on the 30th April. I have added 3 photos from the event to the gallery.
So, technically this photo is not new, as it was taken in 2011, but it is new to our eyes. I have added this very artsy piece by photographer Paul Farrell, taken in London, to the gallery.
Edit: Thanks to our wonderful friend Janice for the second image untagged.
Filming for Rachel’s film Second Origin has now finished and I have added the final collection of photos from the set to our gallery. It is not clear yet when or where the film will be released but we will hopefully hear some news regarding its release soon.
Filming for Second Origin has officially begun, and two more photos of Rachel on the set have been added to the gallery including this one of Rachel with some of the film’s extra stars.
On Friday Rachel stepped out for her first event appearance of the year, to promote her newest film Second Origin. A local news station has kindly shared some pictures of the event with the world and I have added some of these to our gallery.
P.S. Thanks Tayna for sharing a little extra with us too!
I have finally got around to adding Rachel’s recent photos to our gallery! You can view all of the latest images here, or read on to find out what’s been uploaded.
I have added 2 new photoshoot pictures; one is a promotional for Highway to Dhampus, and the other is a recent headshot.
I have also added a bunch of new behind the scenes photos from Highway to Dhampus, and some new event photos from late last year.
I will be adding and updating more content to the site throughout the weekend so do keep checking back!
With a big thank you to Tayna and Fi we know that Rachel is currently filming a brand new movie called Second Origin!
An article over at Screen Daily gives us the following information about Rachel’s role in the film:
Rising British actress Rachel Hurd-Wood (Peter Pan, Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer) is to star in Second Origin, the new film that maverick Spanish director Bigas Luna was originally slated to direct.
Here at the EFM, Manifest Film Sales today announced the imminent start of production on the project.
Bigas Luna who sadly died during the pre-production, is still being billed as co-director. His friend, co-writer and director Carles Porta is now helming.
A science-fiction romance about love and adventure set in a post-apocalyptic world, Second Origin tells the story of Alba and Dídac two young people struggling to survive in a world left in ruins.
Based on the bestselling Catalan novel Mecanoscrit del Segon Origen by Manuel de Pedrolo, which has sold over 2m copies worldwide, Second Origin is a Spanish/UK co-production, produced by Oscar Rodriguez for Antàrtida Produccions and Christine Alderson for Ipso Facto Productions.
Shooting starts in Lleida and Barcelona for seven weeks from Feb 17.
International sales are handled by Manifest Film Sales and VFX and post production takes place in the UK at London’s Lip Sync. The film is financed by ICEC, ICAA, Televisio de Catalunya, Television Espanola, Diputacio de Lleida, Ajuntament de Lleida, Lipsync Productions, Premiere Picture and Jenson Solutions provided SEIS funding.
“We’re delighted to have Rachel Hurd-Wood on board. She brings just the right balance of warmth and truth to this great script,” commented Alderson.
The first footage should be available in time for Cannes.
The article hints that the film may be released in the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, which would mean more promotional appearances for Rachel to attend too!
Some pictures from the initial production of the film have also surfaced and been added to the gallery, be sure to check them out!
I can’t quite believe I began this website in its original form over 10 years ago. Times have really changed since then!
Anyway on to the real reason behind this update. Sa has been doing fantastic job hasn’t she? But she has decided to hand the site back to me, I will hopefully have everything up and running properly shortly. I’d love to know how many fans are still around. Leave a hello in the comments if you’re still here!
