The Capture: Holliday Grainger Details Upping the Ante for the Thriller’s Second Season (source)
In an interview with CBR, The Capture star Holliday Grainger talks about raised stakes and heightened paranoia in Season 2 of the Peacock series.
In an exclusive interview with CBR, The Capture star Holliday Grainger described upping the ante and taking Rachel Carey into darker areas in Season 2. She teased what fans can expect and praised the cast and crew, including series creator Ben Chanan, for crafting such a heightened thriller perfect for the Information Age.
CBR: The Capture Season 2 really starts with Rachel Carey in the lion’s den, now under surveillance and with no one to lean on. How was it starting off the season with this status quo in mind?
Holliday Grainger: It’s great! In a way, in Season 1, she’s quietly confident, and then she kind of builds balls. [laughs] In Season 2, she’s kind of broken a bit at the beginning; broken but steely. As it goes on, the stakes and fear get higher, but her resolve is always steadfast.
The British actress set to light up Tinseltown: heads to Hollywood after wowing critics with performances in hit BBC thriller The Capture
Dailymail has released a small article, on Holly’s new career path.
Holliday Grainger is seizing her chance to conquer Hollywood after acclaimed performances as a detective in BBC surveillance thriller The Capture. The British actress, 34, will play a female superhero in science-fiction blockbuster Mickey 7. And industry sources say this is ‘just the beginning’ for Holliday after she caught the eye of Los Angeles producers. She is now being discussed in Hollywood as the ‘next big thing’. Filming of her first cinema leading role has begun at Warner Bros studios near Watford, with Holliday starring opposite British heart-throb Robert Pattinson, 36.
Mickey 7, which also features Australian actress Toni Collette, is based on a novel by Edward Ashton and tells the story of a superhero who joins a human mission to colonise an ice world. An insider on the film said: ‘Holliday is really enjoying herself. It’s something really different for her after The Capture. She has been seen by the nation playing a tough detective – but now she is off to space. She has been somewhat excitable on set and she is loving being part of a film that couldn’t have a more different genre for her.’ It is understood casting directors are delighted Manchester-born Holliday is a redhead (she’s more of a light brunette though), as they are in demand across Hollywood.
Holliday, who has toddler twins with her partner, The Crown actor Harry Treadaway, 38, is directed in Mickey 7 by South Korean Bong Joon-ho, whose black comedy thriller Parasite won a Best Picture Oscar in 2020. Just days ago in the finale of The Capture, more than six million viewers saw Holliday’s character DCI Rachel Carey expose the truth about the politician played by Paapa Essiedu.She studied English at Leeds University and appeared in TV dramas Where The Heart Is and Waterloo Road before finding fame playing Lady Constance Chatterley in a BBC remake of Lady Chatterley’s Lover in 2015.
Two years later she landed her role on the first series of The Capture. In 2020, it was reported that the thriller’s producers had agreed to put the second series on hold after she revealed she was pregnant with twins by her partner Harry. That series finally aired from the end of last month.
Holliday graced us with a virtual live by BIFA where she and Micheal Ward stated the list of nominees for this years BIFA awards. She also gave a small interview afterwards, which you can watch below:
EDIT: A new interview has surfaced which you can see here. Screencaps also now available on the gallery.
The actor, 32, who starred in Strike and The Capture, lives in Devon with her boyfriend, fellow actor Harry Treadaway, 36
When I’m filming, the day begins early – usually at 5.30am – but if I’m not working, I get up at 9am. That’s the difficult thing about being an actor; your routine can shift very quickly. I make coffee, toast with Marmite and avocado, and a smoothie. Then I’ll put together a to-do list. Some weeks I feel like an incredibly organised businesswoman, others I’m chasing my tail.
My most recent project was reading the audiobook of journalist Dolly Alderton’s debut novel, Ghosts, about modern dating. I’ve never been ‘ghosted’, but in my earlier 20s, I had my fair share of questionable romances. I found the book incredibly amusing, even on the third reading.
Since lockdown, life has changed so much. [Holliday is pregnant with her first child.] A lot of my jobs have been moved to 2021, so I spent most of it in Devon, where we rent a place. Having extra time together has been really lovely; the best thing was being forced to be static. I developed an obsession with the vintage furniture website Vinterior. I also got into cooking more. We ordered a veg box with lots of lovely seasonal produce, and I mastered butternut squash and chickpea curry.
