Anna Karenina filming photos

It may have been out for a while now but Christiane only just went to see Anna Karenina (2012) at her local cinema in Austria last week which brought back some great memories and reminded me that I’ve never posted up any of the photos here.

When we were all hired to work as extras for the mowing scenes we of course signed release forms which included a lengthy legal section on not disclosing details of the film before its release. Officially we weren’t supposed to have cameras on set but in reality the crew were fairly relaxed about it and, as you can see, even posed for a few shots. Unfortunately, since we were all mowing at the time, there’s no pictures of the line of mowers working their way across the plain which did look fantastic and was featured in the trailer. There’s pics of the amazing ‘snath-cam’, folk on set in their costumes, me making and fitting scythes for Dohmnall Gleeson, Conor McCarry and Steve Evets (Levin, Young Peasant & Theodore) and my friend Beth doing her ‘convincing Russian peasant’ audition.
