September 2006

Richard Chamberlain

Richard Chamberlain officially opened the 35 Million Carlton Hotel and Spa in Kinsale. He is staying in the hotel while filming "Strength And Honour" in Oystercreek. Around 1200 people attended the gala event.

Richard Chamberlain has joined the cast of Universal Pictures' "I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry" starring Adam Sandler and Kevin James. In the movie about two straight, single firefighters pretending to be a gay couple in order to receive domestic-partner benefits, Richard will play the head of the city council who presides over the duo's benefits hearing.

On Set Report

Richard Chamberlain
As Richard relaxed on the set in Kinsale, Ireland, he said he was struck by the beautiful countryside around him.
"I lived in London in the late 1960's and early 70's but did not get the chance to travel to Ireland. That is one of the reasons I took the part in this new picture - to finally come to Ireland. The rugged coastline is beautiful and there is something magical about the place. It's the same feeling I had when I first visited Hawaii many years ago. And I ended up moving there, so you never know."
"On Thursday I had my first pint of Guinness since 1970 - it was wonderful. I plan to stay on after filming ends and travel around the country as much as possible. One of the places I want to see is the graveyard in Kinsale where the bodies of Spanish sailors from a wrecked Armada ship were buried in the17th Century."

Richard is in Irelend where shooting has begun on the movie "Strength and Honour."

"Blackbeard"
Saturday June 17 at 8:00pm ET

Chamberlain Relishes Switch to Bad-Guy Role

Richard plays a corrupt governor who will stop at nothing, including having his adopted daughter killed, to get what he wants in "Blackbeard," a Hallmark Channel original movie airing this Saturday. "I am a very bad guy in this and it's great fun," he said. "Playing leading men is wonderful, but the parameters are very narrow. Character work allows you so much more freedom and it's such a joy for me."
"Blackbeard" reunites Richard and Rachel Ward who plays a bawdy woman who runs a tavern, for the first time since their pairing in the acclaimed 1983 TV miniseries "The Thorn Birds."
"One of the great excitements for me in taking this job was because I knew Rachel was going to be on board," Chamberlain said. However, the duo don't have any scenes together. "We met, by sheerest chance, in the airport," Chamberlain said. "She was leaving Thailand, and I was just coming in. And it had been arranged that this might happen, and we did actually have about 15 minutes together. "It's the first time I've seen her in 25 years. And I'm here to report that she's staggeringly beautiful and nicer than ever. It was great, great to see her and catch up after all these years."

Tony-nominated Broadway star Jan Mawxell recently joined the cast of Hawaii Opera Theatre's Summer production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The King And I" in the role of Anna Leonowens opposite Richard Chamberlain who plays the title role. She replaces Sylvia McNair who unexecptedly withdrew from the production for personal reasons.
