Three Musketeers Interviews

Matthew Macfadyen: An Improbably Romantic Hero (Oct 2011)

Luce found an interview in Spanish, where Matthew Macfadyen discusses being Mr Darcy, the movie The Three Musketeers, and his upcoming role in Joe Wright's version of Anna Karenina.

You can view the original interview in Spanish HERE.

The google translation is not very good, but I've attempted to clean it up and posted it below.


Matthew Macfadyen, the unlikely romantic hero

07:00 h | Fernando de Luis-Orueta

Briton Matthew Macfadyen, Athos, brings to life the umpteenth version of 'The Three Musketeers', which opened in theaters yesterday with an abundance of visual effects and 3D zeppelins. But first was the best Mr. Darcy of "Pride and Prejudice 'and Prior Philip of 'The Pillars of the Earth'.

It was hard to imagine that director Joe Wright chose such a guy to give life to Mr. Darcy, the romantic hero par excellence, who stars in Pride and Prejudice. But he did: Matthew Macfadyen (Great Yarmouth, England, 1974), with his sad eyes and good-natured behaviour, became one of the best leading men of the movies recently. And will be again soon, working with the same director and facing the same woman, Keira Knightley, in a new version of Anna Karenina.

Interview with Matthew Macfadyen talking about The Three Musketeers and his projects

Matthew McFadyen is the versatile actor who plays the musketeer Athos in the new 3D version of "The Three Musketeers." Versatile because he has been very successful in the theater, in television ("The Pillars of the Earth") and also in film with movies like the celebrated adaptation of Jane Austen's novel "Pride and Prejudice" with Kiera Knightley and directed by Joe Wright, with whom he will work again in his next project. Has given rise to a multitude of classic literature and, on the occasion of the presentation of "The 3 Musketeers 3D" at the Festival of San Sebastian, we had the opportunity to conduct this interview.

September 30, 2011 / Javier Tamarit Lacomba What are the differences between the interpreter and Athos shown in the previous movies and the novel?
Matthew McFadyen: I do not know, I do not know the previous versions. Athos, I've played as I have found in the script.
