I'm Colin father please material London 12 years after the second Bridget Jones movie were you immediately convinced to make a number tree I think by the time it got to its present incarnation I I was convinced it's always a bit of a blur getting even with the second film it developed gradually and I don't remember agreeing to be in it I remember talking to Hugh Grant saying do you remember did you ever say yes how
00:31
I don't think sorry we're just here this has been I did say yes to this but the momentum kept stopping you know I think there was about six years ago there was an attempt to get this into production it got derailed for various reasons there I've met several directors seeing different drafts by different writers so it hasn't been a perpetual discussion but it has kept coming back and about a year ago I think or two years ago there
01:02
was a draft which made me think okay I think there's a film will everybody be there well we get everybody back it's very very difficult to manage that there's a lot of people then Helen Fielding wrote a book which gives me a different fate and I thought well that's got to be over there now and then I realized that there was there's an attempt going to be to make this no matter what once I realized that Rene was enthusiastic it was very exciting to hear sharon maguire I wanted to do it
01:33
and the momentum kicked in so you know I started to get more and more optimistic about it between the number two and this number three your status has changed because you won the Oscar and you made very very powerful dramas then was it difficult to to find this all choose of margadarsi a little bit well I thought it was it was - it was difficult in my in my imagination in the end it's
02:07
actually you know I don't think if you're trying to feel old shoes you're probably going down the wrong path anyway it was about you you play what's on the page you know this you're dependent on how things are written so I was very concerned that mark was written in a way that I recognized I had forgotten what he looks like Oh sounds like really it's not that complicated because in the end it's me but I knew that the film was cherished by a number of people I knew
02:39
that they had knew it better than I did I hope I last saw the film you know I went back to see it again but I last saw the film in 2001 and there are people who've seen it over and over again and I thought you know they have ownership of this not me so I thought I'd better check what it how it is I know what I am I'm supposed to do and I thought okay that's the way it's being written like I did intervene a little bit said don't don't make him talk too much don't make
03:10
him Express too much don't you know you lose his definition you just got to stay contained and stiff and reserved and constipated and you know impossible in that way otherwise we wouldn't recognize him so once the writing was right it was reasonably straightforward because my view of this character is that he actually is very passionate I think he's highly sexed I think he has all sorts of outrageous impulses he just can't show any of them they're all contained in
03:40
this very very tight shell so once that that was written and then once I saw Rene wants us back you know it's Sheeran and and and Sally and James and Shirley and all the right people it will came back to me according to you you explained a huge success of this character these books these movies what's the secret of this success I don't know I think if we really really understood the secret of something which has an enduring success then we all just
04:11
go and make them all the time and everything would be a hit and we'd all be rich and you know I think it's a it's a it's a combination of it's just it's a lucky chemical compound you know with with the right people with the right writer paired with the with the right actor and and these sensibilities just come out and in a certain way you know the character of I'm not going to really get
04:42
into how she plays to the times and the zeitgeist I believe that the colonists but I do think that what Renee does have some paradoxes which make her fascinating because she's tough but fragile she is hopeless but competent you know she's she's adorable and beautiful but also a kind of mess and so you you want to rescue her but then you realized she's not to be underestimated
05:12
and so I think that we can project onto an awful lot and I think that her disasters kind of make other people forgive their own somewhat well thank you thank you always a pleasure
