Jamie Bell Talks About “The Eagle”

Uploaded on Monday 7 February 2011


I had a great time meeting Jamie Bell, perhaps best remembered for his iconic role as “Billy Elliott.” His dancing background helped him in making his upcoming film “The Eagle” where he plays Esca, a Briton slave who can fight in a feral, uncultivated way.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Is there a cultural connection between he and his character Esca?
*** What attracted him into making “The Eagle?”
*** The “clash of cultures” element of director Kevin Macdonald’s films
*** How he prepared for the part
*** How he and Channing bonded
*** What’s the biggest challenge in making “The Eagle?”
