We would like to introduce a new feature to our site: The Movie/TV Spotlight. This is inspired by my friend Frederik from Helen Mirren Archives. Each of Matthias’ projects will receive a spotlight which will give us the opportunity to update our gallery and information page(s). Today we will start with one of his recent projects: “Far from the Madding Crowd” in which he stars alongside Carey Mulligan as Gabriel Oak. We updated our gallery with the latest additions, including the Blu-Ray/HD screencaptures and additional production stills, and launched the filmography information page. The movie is available on Digital HD since yesterday so be sure to pick up your own copy!
The French distributor released additional stills of “Maryland” earlier this week including 3 featuring Matthias. We have added the stills in our gallery. The movie is selected for the Cannes Film Festival later this month. We also added a few additonal images of “Far From The Madding Crowd“.
Matthias and his co-star Carey Mulligan made an appearance on Good Morning America earlier this week to promote “Far From The Madding Crowd“. We have added the interview in our video archive and you can find an official still in our gallery.
Matthias and his co-stars Carey Mulligan sat down with USA Today to promote “Far From The Madding Crowd“. The print edition of the interview appeared in yesterday’s edition (April 28) of USA Today and you can find the scans in our gallery. We also added the first photoshoot outtakes.
Growing up in Belgium, the son of actor Julien Schoenaerts, Matthias Schoenaerts never thought to enter the family business.
He wanted to be a professional soccer player.
So when, exactly, did he realize he could pay rent by acting in films such as 2011’s best foreign language Oscar nominee Bullhead or as a bare-knuckle brawler opposite Marion Cotillard in the heartbreaking 2012 French drama Rust and Bone?
“Yesterday. As we speak,” jokes the actor, 37. “I never dreamed of being an actor. At a certain point, that’s what I wanted to do. Before you know it, you graduate from the Academy of Dramatic Arts. Damn, I’m an actor.”
Matthias attended the press conference for “Far From The Madding Crowd” in New York City earlier this week before the red carpet premiere of the movie. The first images have been added in our gallery but we are looking out for better quality and additions!
Matthias joined his co-stars Carey Mulligan, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen, and director Thomas Vinterberg last night on the premiere for “Far From The Madding Crowd” in New York. The first high quality images have been added in our gallery.
Matthias is featured in yesterday’s edition of The Sunday Times to promote the U.K. release of “Far From The Madding Crowd“. We have added the photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the full interview can be found in our press archive.
With a trio of big films out at the same time, he is the hottest thing to come out of Belgium — ever
For some weeks now, Britain’s billboards have been valiantly struggling with Matthias Schoenaerts’s name: all those vowels spelt out on adverts for Suite Française, released last month; A Little Chaos, earlier this month; and next up, Far from the Madding Crowd. In Thomas Vinterberg’s luscious take on the Thomas Hardy novel, released on Friday, Schoenaerts’s Gabriel Oak shadows Carey Mulligan’s impetuous Bathsheba. Not that he has seen any of the media blitzkrieg: the Belgian actor, 37, has only just arrived at his London hotel for the film’s premiere. “I’m like the Space Invader all of a sudden,” he says, miming a spaceship hovering over us all.
