After the world premiere of his new film, 'The Stag,' which was screened at the Scotiabank Cineplex on September 10, Andrew Scott answered some questions - well, one really - and spoke a bit more, along with the director, John Butler, and Peter McDonald, the co-writer and co-star of the film. Someone was kind enough to post the video she shot to YouTube.
The cast takes up the entire stage in a single row across and Butler does most of the talking, but it is amusing. Polite and humble as always, Andrew grabbed the mike at the end on behalf of the group to make sure to thank everyone who came, and for the great reception they gave the film. He did give a nice long answer earlier. One tidbit that was revealed about the plot was when Butler mentioned that Scott's character, Davin, was the most important part in the story and had to carry the through-line as it advanced.
Listening to Andrew speak you may notice that having spent so much recent time in the thick of his countrymen and countrywomen, Andrew's accent got much more Irish; lovelier and even more musical.
Scott jetted off today to Ireland from Toronto to resume his role in 'Jimmy's Hall,' the new Ken Loach film. The shooting continues to the end of the month.
By the way, look for the part where Andrew points out his striped socks as a definition of "metrosexual."
