Michael Fassbender attended the world premiere of Alien: Covenant in London's Leicester Square yesterday. He was on the green carpet with Ridley Scott, and Katherine Waterston, his co-star from Steve Jobs. Based on a few of the non-spoilery comments about the film from those who saw it, we're in for a bloody ride, and they say that Michael is in top form. Later that afternoon, Michael went to record the Graham Norton Show - which we should be able to view sometime this weekend.
On Friday, I'm excited to meet yet another Fassinator in person. This time it is April, a great supporter of the birthday fundraiser and a good friend. The next time I visit Ireland, she's going to tag along. We're going to a concert in LA and hanging out a bit. We'll eat good food, drink champagne/mimosas, and engage in deep conversations about Fassy and life.
Here is a good quote from Michael this week about how much he values his private time and why it's important to him as a celebrity.
‘It’s effective for me as an actor because I want to be able to disappear into the characters I play,’ Fassbender said in an interview with Australia’s Stellar. ‘I don’t want the audience to be distracted by whatever else is seen of me in the real world.‘I would consider myself a private person. I work in a medium where we rely on the public to go see it, but my own life is for me.’ (link)
