Alec Baldwin has been starring two Irish actors since he accidentally shot a woman
ALEC Baldwin stars alongside an Irish actress and actor in two separate films in his first film roles since the tragic flick he shot on a cinematographer’s set.
he Sunday World can reveal he is working alongside Sligo wife Elva Trill in one film and Cork actor Jonathan Rhys Myers in another.
Elva is currently in Italy, where she previously filmed scenes as a character called Peggy with Alec’s brother, William, in the animated Christmas family comedy Kid Santa.
Alec is due to fly to Italy in the next few days to film one of his first roles since his tragic appearance in Rust, in which cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza injured by a gun propeller used by Baldwin.
Along with Kid Santa, Alec is also set to star in the Romea tie-in movie called Billie’s Magic World.
Both films are from Italian director Francesco Cinquemani, whose production will take place in Rome – Baldwin last collaborated with Cinquemani on the sci-fi film Andron: The Black Labyrinth.
His involvement in the director’s later films would have predated the Rust incident in New Mexico last October.
Baldwin also recently worked in the UK on 97 Minutes, a twisted action-thriller from director Timo Vuorensola (Iron Sky), which stars him alongside Corkman Jonathan Rhys Meyers and MyAnna Buring, and narrates the podcast about the real Art Fraud crime for Cavalry Audio and iHeartRadio.
Baldwin, a Golden Globe/Emmy winner and Oscar nominee, is being sued by Hutchins’ family for his wrongful death on the set of his standalone western, though lawyers for him and his fellow project producers have said that “any claim that Alec was reckless [on set] is entirely false.
The Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department investigation into the case is ongoing. Charges in the incident, which occurred on October 21, 2021, have yet to be filed.
Elva Trill has been dubbed Ireland’s answer to Angelina Jolie’s set to become famous in the new Jurassic World film.
The 29-year-old will not only join Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the Hollywood blockbuster, but she’ll also star alongside the original Jurassic Park trio of Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill and Laura Dern, all of whom are making a comeback. franchise.
“The main question I get asked is ‘have you been eaten?’ I’m like ‘I can’t tell you!'” Elva recently told The Sunday World when asked about her upcoming role as Charlotte Lockwood in Jurassic World: Dominion.
She was taken to Pinewood Studios near London last summer to film the film and admits the Covid precautions taken were “surreal”.
“We ended up staying in a place next to the studio and they made it a green zone and everyone was checked every week,” she recalls. “When I arrived I was greeted by a front desk person with an umbrella and standing next to her was a person in a white coat.
“It was almost like being led into a celebrity rehab because you just saw these famous faces wandering around the grounds and these people in white lab gear.”
She then got to meet some of the famous names that were taking part.
“The first day I was there I was walking around and it was really nice and the next thing I know Jeff Goldblum was hanging out the window and he was like, ‘Well hello and who could you be?” she smiled. “I ended up chatting with him through a window, because we wouldn’t really be in the same room for the first two days because you had to get tested.
“He’s so incredibly charismatic and remembers everyone’s name and talks to everyone. He was talking to himself as he walked around, he was really sweet, he was as nice as anyone could tell. imagine and so witty and charming.
“And Sam Neill was really cool too. Just working with Colin Trevorrow, the director, he was so amazing to work with and so generous. He gave me the opportunity and the scope to do what I was doing and It worked really well. It was super exciting.”
Elva can’t wait to see the movie when it hits the big screen in the summer of 2022.
“I was a huge Jurassic Park fan growing up and these people were on my TV,” she said.
Elva knew from an early age that she wanted to be an actress and at the age of 12 she took a three-hour train journey from her home in Ballymote to take part in Saturday sessions at the famous drama school Gaiety.
In her late teens, Elva secured a place in rehearsal studios at The Factory and, through her new agent, landed a role in the BBC series Ripper Street, which was filming in Dublin.
“I got to work with Matthew Macfadyen and Jerome Flynn and Adam Rothenberg, which was awesome,” she says.
Elva also worked on one of the biggest TV shows of recent years, Line Of Duty.
She also worked with Amy Huberman on Striking Out and her brother Mark too, on an upcoming film they recently made in Cyprus called Ghosts of Monday.
Elva currently lives in London and recently filmed a series for HBO/BBC3 called Starstruck.
And if all that’s not enough, she’s also part of a band, The City and Us, which has played in Taiwan, several parts of Europe and at the Olympia in Dublin.
“Myself and Mark Hogan are the main signers and the band lasts about three years,” she explains.
“We just want to have fun, make great music, but also if possible make a job out of it if we can.”
Jonathan Rhys Meyers (44) made his first major film appearance as an assassin in Michael Collins.
He appeared in films such as Bend It Like Beckham and Velvet Goldmine, as well as television series such as The Tudors and Elvis, for which he won a Golden Globe Award.
The father-of-one married Mara Lane in 2016 and had a high-profile battle with alcoholism.
