Olly alexander dating
There are those who try their luck in the music and film industry and there are those who succeed. Because I haven’t slapped that many people in my life. And have you ever kind of broke out the slap after all of your training? I work up to it and sort of, you know, warm up with a couple of, kind of like, punches and then I finish with a slap. But I have always really respected Belle and Sebastian for what they are, what they do. Stuart is a brilliant songwriter and they just do what they do so well that’s so kind of like true to their own kind of thing. And then a couple years later, they were getting desperate and hadn’t found an actor yet and I finally got to audition. We were like, “Captain is definitely not a dude and Captain is pregnant.” Anyway, but the dog trainer was totally denying this fact. And then one day on set, she gave, the dog gave birth. And then they were like, "Oh no, no.” And [the dog trainer] got like a duvet out of her car and laid it out on the street and the dog gave birth.
24-year-old Olly Alexander, as you may have guessed, is the latter. I actually had to have a fight coordinator teach me how to slap. I feel like you always want to work with people who kind of are like artists and that is so true. She’s like, "Oh, no no no.” Cause Captain was like such a bad actor dog, as well.
For those who aren't already acquainted, Alexander is the frontman of British electro-pop band Years & Years, whose few songs are in a steady, constant rotation over at NYLON HQ. The thing is, right, stunt coordinators on movies are really intense and even for something that is as small as a slap, you need to have like two hours rehearsal for. Stuart just made a movie he wanted to make, you know? And then the role, I mean I would’ve done anything probably.
It’s by the sea and there’s a lot of casinos and resorts. Well, I feel like the film had been floating around—I had heard about the film years before I auditioned for it because it had been casting for quite a while. But I’m not really as cynical or pretentious as James. You know those people who are really opinionated, but it’s because they’re kind of insecure and they really just want to be liked by people, but they were kind of maybe bullied or weird at school so they’ve kind of got these rigid opinions about stuff? I like a lot of trashy music, as well as good music. And when he does, she’s she tells him he should have done it a while back. It kind of just felt like, "I can’t believe I get paid to do this." That was it. We had finished the scripted dialogue and Stuart was like, “Uhh, guys, talk about how the dog’s pregnant.” And you were like, “She’s getting really fat.” And I was like, “Yeah, she’s pregnant.”Gold. Because that’s been my life that I’m tied to, so I guess it did help in that way. I think he’s just he’s one of those people who is so opinionated, but it’s kind of to hide. He’s a little bit of a music snob, as well, which I am not. But then I also listen to like Beyonce and Jeff Buckley. You know, I feel like, it felt like I was watching something illegal. So obviously James is very timid when it comes to Eve and kind of making his move. And me, Hannah, and Emily, we were just standing there and our jaws hitting the floor being like, “This is amazing.” And I realized that being in a film where your job is to show up and just be a part of all of this singing and dancing is the funnest thing ever. I think, I don’t think it’s in, but Stuart was like, we were doing a scene and we’d finished and walking down the street. And also I totally get the whole frustrated musician thing. Yeah, you gotta embrace all forms of culture, you know? Although I did watch the new Nicki Minaj video ["Anaconda"] and I don’t know how I feel about it. Yeah, it should’ve came with a disclaimer and a warning. I felt a bit like, “Oh, I shouldn’t have watched that.” But then I wanted to watch it again. I guess, my tip would be, be confident and don’t wear such tight-fitting clothes, maybe? ” And I felt like, maybe it was mainly because all of his clothes were too tight. And anyway, I remember filming that day and for the first time all the dancers did their routine and I came and “Dance rehearsal, go.” And all the dancers came on and did their routine. And he said, "That’s something James would’ve done.” And it definitely helped because I feel very relaxed in the music and band environment. You just become too friendly and then she doesn’t want to start seeing you as a boyfriend cause you’ve taken too long. I was watched the movie and I was like, “Oh my god, who is that horribly skinny person? So there’s old people dancing and everyone starts to come in and Hannah’s character comes and joins and does a little dance. It was a song about a camping holiday I went on when I was ten years old. Don’t get friend zoned cause that happens if you wait too long. ” And we go to this music hall and then she gets up on stage and starts to sing and all these dancers start dancing.
It was so, almost the biggest show we’ve ever played. But we’re just kind of working on getting the album finished. And I wrote a song on my little keyboard and sang it. There’s a bit in the film where I have to dance with Cassie and it’s a bit where Emily is kind of sad and I take her and I’m like, “Get out there!
