Olivia Colman, 48, reels off sex scenes with Empire of Light co-star Michelle Ward

Olivia Colman reflects on filming sex scenes with on-screen lover Michelle Ward in Empire of Light – and talks about the moment she found out his mother was five years younger than her.

The actress, 48, and the Top Boy star, 25, discussed a few “slightly embarrassing” moments during filming as they spoke on a new episode of The Graham Norton Show that will air on New Year’s Eve.

Sam Mendes’ 1917 romantic drama starred Olivia as a movie director, Hilary, who develops a relationship with a ticket salesman, Stephen, played by a much younger Michelle.

Olivia said of the intimate scenes: “There was one particular moment when I was putting Michael in an even, slightly awkward position and he said, ‘It’s my mom’s birthday today.'”

When he said she was 43, I was like, “Okay, stop talking!” “

Further discussion of the film, when Olivia was asked if the role was written especially for her, she said, ‘Apparently it was. But Sam is so sweet that he would have said it anyway. He was watching The Crown at the time and thinking of me.

We had a Zoom chat during lockdown and I said “well yeah” before I knew what it was. It is a great honor to write something for me.

Jokingly adding, “It was a great part, thank God — can you imagine if it was rubbish!”

Speaking about working with Olivia, Michael said later on the show: “It was such an amazing experience. It was incredible just sharing the same space. I learned so much about being a real person — everyone had a real sense of humanity.”

LOL: “There was one special moment when I was riding Michelle in a stand-up and a little awkward situation,” Olivia said of the intimate scenes.

“If Olivia had been sassy I might have thought that was the way I needed to get to a certain level of success, but the fact that she was so beautiful showed me that I could be a good person and still be successful.”

Empire Of Light is a love story “set around a beautiful old cinema on the south coast of England in the 1980s”.

Filming for the project began in early February in Margate. The coastal town has been transported back to the 1980s as builders transformed the area around the Dreamland theme park.

This project marks the first time that Sam has directed a film that he did not write with the help of a co-writer.

He produced the film with Pippa Harris through Neal Street Productions, and reunited with cinematographer Roger Dickens over production.

Speaking about the film, Sam said in a statement: I have always been a fan of Searchlight and the dynamic way they have produced and released some of my favorite theatrical releases in recent years.

Elsewhere on The Graham Norton Show, Hugh Laurie said he was very proud of his latest film, Romesh Ranganathan joked about working with Kathryn Ryan, Leah Williamson said she brings England’s win to life again and again, and cabaret stars Callum Scott Howells and Madeline Brewer performed live in the studio.

Speaking about his new movie, Amazing Morris, Hugh said, “I loved doing it and the animation is amazing – he’s gorgeous and I look really handsome as a cat!” The movie is full of fun and totally charming. I’m very proud of that.

Speaking about the highly anticipated second series of Avenue 5 and asked if his character’s accent (British pretending to be American) was a challenge, he said: ‘It really gives you some escape route. If you get something wrong and it doesn’t feel right, you always have an excuse for making a deliberate mistake.

“I found it easier than House’s work, which should have been right.”

Asked about his son, whom he described as a “proper adult doctor”, and whether his choice of career had been influenced by Hugh House’s being, he said: “No, I think he’s had to cope despite being harassed by other medical students.

I am very proud of him. I’m a doctor’s son and also a doctor’s father, so I’m kind of the pork chop in between! “

“Most of the Netflix specials take place at the Apollo, so I thought it would be funny to do it at a local theater in Crowley, which looks like an entertainment hub!” Romesh said, speaking of his new special The Cynic.

Asked about his new series, The Romantic Getaway, he added, “I’ve written very nice sitcoms with funny scripts, but I’ve never written anything that’s plot-driven — you want it to be funny but you also want to drive this twisted story.” It was amazing.’

Adding jokingly: “Despite playing a married couple, Katherine (Ryan), who is a really good mate of mine, made it clear from the start that there would be no touching — she was adamant. In fact, I think it was a deal breaker for her! “

Leah also joined Graham for a chat.

When asked what kind of pep talk she gave the team before they won the Euros, she said, “I played music the whole time — so I let that do the talking. I might have said something like, ‘Come on girls.’ It was low key because everyone was up for it. We gave our lives.” For that moment, why don’t we go out and enjoy it.

Speaking about the win, she added, “It was everything I wished it would be and more. I hope I never lose that feeling. I live it over and over again.”

Callum Scott Howells and Madeline Brewer performed Willkommen and Don’t Tell Mama from the West End revival of Cabaret, before joining Graham for a chat.

The Graham Norton Show, BBC One, Saturday 31st December, 10.25pm. Also Available on BBC iPlayer.
