    The Guest will be screened tonight at the TIFF 2014. (Toronto International Film Festival). I believe this is the final pre-release screening, and still the reviews from all quarters are amazing! Congratulations to Dan, all the cast & production team!
    Having been released in the UK on Sept. 5th, the first box office figures indicate a brilliant opening for the film.

    How dreamy and talented can Mr. Stevens get? I am definitely going to order my copies of the upcoming audiobooks so he can reading me "bedtime stories" each night!
    A portion of the narration will be in ANCIENT GREEK (as a sampler to students to hear Homer's epic poem in its original form)! So wonderful!

    Here's the article:

    English stage and screen actor Dan Stevens has narrated a new and exciting production of the Fitzgerald translation of The Iliad and The Odyssey for Macmillan Audio. The new programs will go on sale on September 16, 2014.

    Robert Fitzgerald's translations of The Iliad and The Odyssey are the best-loved modern translations of the greatest of all epic poems. Since 1961, Fitzgerald's translation of The Odyssey has sold more than two million copies, and it is the standard translation for three generations of students and poets. Of the many translations published since World War II, only Fitzgerald's has won admiration as a great poem in English.

    Macmillan Audio is delighted to publish the new audio editions of these classic works. Fitzgerald's supple verse is ideally suited to the story of Odysseus' battle epic and long journey back to his wife and home, and the melodious narration of the incomparable Dan Stevens succeeds in further electrifying the story. Homer's tale of love, adventure, food and drink, sensual pleasure, and mortal danger is brought to life for English speakers with this perfect combination of translation and reader.

    The Iliad and The Odyssey are part of an oral tradition, and although people have been reading them for centuries in written form, audio is actually the original method through which to enjoy these works. In a clear, controlled, and authoritative voice, Dan Stevens brings listeners back to the original method through which Homer's stories were meant to be absorbed. His narration makes these complex and intricate verses easy for students to comprehend, making them ideal for inclusion in classroom curriculums and study-guides.

    Each audiobook also includes a portion of the poem read in the ancient Greek so that listeners may experience the lyricism and music of the original language.

    The programs will be available wherever audiobooks are sold in stores and online.

    Dan Steven stars in the upcoming theatrical releases The Guest, A Walk Among The Tombstones, The Cobbler, and Night at the Museum III. Television credits include Downton Abbey, Sense & Sensibility, Dracula, and Frankenstein.Theater Credits include The Heiress on Broadway and Arcadia in the West End. Previous audiobook narrations include And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express. Stevens was also part of the Judging Panel for the Man Booker Prize in 2012, has contributed a regular column to The Sunday Telegraph, and is the Editor-at-Large for The Junket, an online literary quarterly. He resides in New York.

    I am very impressed by Dan Stevens. A really good guy. The following is a quote from an interview from Irish Times - in which Dan Stevens speaks about being a dad.

    “Having children is wonderful for an actor, I think,” he says “Partly because they remind you about so many great things in life that have nothing to do with work and also because an actor is interested in people and character and personality. So watching two little humans grow up is so very exciting.”

    TRIED MY BEST TO GET THIS INTERVIEW, COULD NOT BRING IT ABOUT, REGISTERING ITV KEPT ASKING THE SAME STUPID QUESTION...POST CODE..I ONLY HAVE ONE AND ITS THE RIGHT ONE! DISAPPOINTED, SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS A FUN INTERVIEW...

  • Reply to: The Guest: Beating off Good Morning Britain and other interviews   2 years 29 weeks ago

    Dan giggled with extreme embarrassment, but still managed to be remain genuinely nice and good-humored about the question of "beating off so many American men. . . "

    And then her really embarrassing question about what Dan thought - seeing the Men Health's cover photo of the fellow host. . . Dan was speechless! And she remarked on his reaction too!

    The interviewer just wanted to take Dan up on his offer for her to "cuddle" him . . . She was too smitten to think and talk properly. I think I would have behaved the same way if Dan Stevens were sitting within arm's reach of me!

    The interviewer was rather heavy-handed… nearly giving away the plot of The Guest.

    Thank goodness - Dan being as wonderful and smart as ever - answering questions without giving away the plot. He wants his fans to enjoy the thrill ride of The Guest! Thanks, Dan!

  • Reply to: The Guest: Guardian Weekend interview & photoshoot   2 years 29 weeks ago

    All the film critics who have watched and reviewed "The Guest" have such high praises for Dan, and for the cast and crew of the entire film.

    "The Guest is beautifully shot and has style in buckets. It’s backed up by a standout performance form Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens which turns out to be a casting masterstroke. He manages to deliver a character that is part Michael Myers and part Cyborg to great effect to create a ruthless and mysterious super solider. It is also up and coming starlet Maika Monroe, who plays the suspicious daughter Anna, and Brendan Meyer, as younger brother and bullied teen Luke, that help add realism and familiarity to the story.
    Further nods to Halloween can also be seen in Lance Reddick’s performance who manages to channel his inner Dr Loomis. Make no mistake though as this show belongs fully to the dashing Brit.
    It’s yet another successful collaboration between director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett following on from the success of last year’s heavily-delayed You’re Next. They are bursting with confidence with their latest feature. Confident of both playing homage to some of their favourite films as well as being able to successfully put their own ideas into the mix.
    They have managed to execute a delicate balancing act between a tense thriller and being able to add quick-witted dialogue and dark humour without it seeming forced or out of place, which combines to make for a thoroughly enjoyable fun thrill ride.

    An amazing bunch of great reviews, all well deserved. It is a brilliant film. I'm sure that it will win just as much credit & surprised reaction at the Toronto Film Festival & the later special screening in NYC, as it did at the London Frightfest last week.

  • Reply to: A Walk Among The Tombstones: video interview with Dan.   2 years 30 weeks ago

    Yes, we do LOVE Dan, and his gorgeous blue eyes are DEFINITELY hypnotizing. He looks so different for this role in "A Walk Among The Tombstones", but he's still gorgeous as ever. I sure hope he proves everyone that's saying "he's not gonna make it big" wrong. He is SUCH a talented actor. Love him to pieces. Best of luck to Dan, and I look forward to everything he does. :) I'm a HUGE, HUUUUUGGE fan of Dan's. Love him.

  • Reply to: The Guest & The Cobbler screenings at TIFF 2014   2 years 31 weeks ago

    In case Dan fans may not be keen on the idea of watching a "Horror" film, a classification that has really stemmed from the fact that it opened the London Frightfest 2014, be assured that it is not really a horror film, more a thriller! No more violent than Breaking Bad or The Honourable Woman!
    There is humour, subtlety, charm, charisma, action. A really different type of role for Dan than we have seen to date, but a brilliantly performed one none the less!
