Happy Sunday Creative Army!

I've got my coffee in hand and your weekly dose of content coming in hot - grab your coffee of choice and let's dive right in.

First up, The Tonight Show recently interviewed Nicole Kidman about her recent role play Lucille Ball in Aaron Sorkin's Being the Ricardos. Nicole talks about the complexity of playing such an iconic person - and the different approaches to playing the off screen version of "Lucille" versus playing "Lucy" as depicted on I Love Lucy. 

Next up, Focus Features has a great series called "Reel Destinations" about the locations that make our favorite movies come to life. In this episode, host Alicia Malone explores the English countryside - the backdrop of the film version of Downton Abbey. You will get a behind the scenes look at the fictional Crawley family home - Highclere Castle, and learn how they successfully (and safely) filmed at such a historic location. 

As always here at Stage 32, we love to share stories and knowledge with our fellow film fans. Know someone who would love this content? Share it with them! Tag them below!
