Liz & Dick Interview: Henry Hereford:
Lifetime's highly anticipated film based on the romance of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, starring Lindsay Lohan, will premiere on Sunday November 25 at 9:00 PM. Soaps.com's Hollie Deese spoke with Henry Hereford, who was sent to audition for the role of Martin and was offered the role two weeks later. "He is the manager of the Dorchester Hotel in London which is one of the oldest hotels and it is still sort of one of the most prestigious hotels today. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are living there and are put up by one of their movies. So he has to oversee them and is very 60s UK, he has been trained in a very stiff upper-lip way. He provides a lot of humor because they know he finds it sort of difficult. At different times he has to fight against them and Elizabeth Taylor is very – she did exactly what she wanted and he has to cope with that. It is a very serious movie and my scenes provide a comic element to it."
When asked if he's a fan of Elizabeth Taylor’s work, Hereford stated, "I am. I think she is an incredible actress. I have sort of become a little more familiar with it since I worked on the movie. I didn’t know as much before. She is an icon but I hadn’t watched hundreds of her films or anything like that."
All of Hereford's scenes are with Lindsay Lohan, who plays Elizabeth. "She knows what she is doing and she has amazing instincts because she has worked for most of her life as an actor on screen. It was good for me to learn from someone who is very comfortable in front of the camera. It is always great to be able to work with people who I guess have more experience because you always learn from them."
Though the actor doesn't have any current films coming out, Hereford talked about an independent movie co-starring Dean Cain ("Superman"). "I play a German. It is a funny movie and that will be out early or mid next year. I have also recently just finished shooting a short film which was again very different because I was playing a criminal psychologist who didn’t believe this guy had murdered his father. It is only a 10 minute film but I was really attracted to the script because it was a lot of dialogue but it also made me sit in one room like an interrogation. That will be sent out to festivals around the country and can do really well."
He would love to return to television and has had a fair number of auditions over the last few weeks. "I think it is the golden age of television and I think it is every actor’s ambition to be getting into television. It is definitely a huge credit to you as an actor and leads, more than it did 10 or 11 years ago. Actors are getting roles in movies because of the following they are having in television now. The success of something like 'Breaking Bad' - Bryan Cranston obviously had a huge body of work before but now I have seen him in probably 12 movies since. I think because people love the show that people would go see a movie because it has a guy or girl from a TV show that they love. So yes, television is where my representation and where we feel. Having said that you are never closed off to whatever the role is when it comes up in a movie or television. If a great role comes up and you are right for it, it doesn’t matter if it is television or a movie or voice over."
The Division is threatened in the CW's November 30 8:00 PM episode titled "The Sword's Edge."
