Fans React To Nicholas Galitzine’s Promo Picture For His Upcoming Movie The Idea Of You

After the trailer release of Anne Hathaway’s The Idea Of You on YouTube, Nicholas Galitzine’s promo picture for the upcoming movie went viral on social media. From the time The Idea Of You went into production, fans have speculated that the character of Hayes, played by Galitzine is inspired by Harry Styles. During an interview with Vogue in December 2020, author Robinne Lee mentioned that the protagonist of her book is a mix of Harry Styles, Prince Harry, and The Theory Of Everything actor Eddie Redmayne. She said-

“It was never supposed to be a book about Harry Styles … it was supposed to be a story about a woman approaching 40 and reclaiming her sexuality and rediscovering herself, just at the point that society traditionally writes women off as desirable and viable and whole.”

Nicholas Galitzine Talks About Doing Steamy Scenes In Mary & George

Nicholas Galitzine collaborated with legendary actor Julianne Moore for the erotic thriller Mary & George. The seven-episode limited series became the talk of the entertainment world due to its content and steamy scenes. During an interview with AP News, Nicholas Galitzine was asked about his approach while doing intimate scenes in Mary & George. He said-

 Well, it’s funny, our director Oliver Hermanus, we went out for dinner before we started and he said to me, “There’s a lot of sex scenes in this. Are you definitely OK with this?” Luckily, it’s something that I’ve done, over the years, and I think that you put aside your own anxieties the moment they call action.

He further explained-

If you’ve done the research on your character, if you fully have invested in who they are and who they need to be on screen — someone like George, who carries this poise with him — you’re able to become someone else in those moments. And you don’t feel the trepidation of all these strange people watching you. So I don’t want to say it was easy or I felt at ease, necessarily.

Galitzine was thankful to the incredible intimacy coordinator Robbie Taylor Hunt. He mentioned-

But, we had an incredible cast and crew and the scenes were handled so well by intimacy coordinator Robbie Taylor Hunt. And, I think they are shot in a particularly beautiful way, both Julie’s and my own, I’m very proud of.

With an IMDb rating of 7.8 out of 10, Mary & George is currently streaming on STARZ
