We have a musical discussion with the cast of Chevalier, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Samara Weaving, and Lucy Boynton
Chevalier is based on the true life story of Joseph Balogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Born the illegitimate son of an African slave and a French plantation owner, Balogne was a gifted composer and musician. It’s a fascinating portrait, and Kelvin Harrison Jr. is terrific in the leading role. Adding support is the splendid Samara Weaving and Lucy Boynton. Directed by Stephen Williams, the film opens this Friday at a theatre near you. If you are curious about a hidden story in musical history, this one is worth uncovering.
We recently had the pleasure to speak with the stars of Chevalier. First up, we spoke with the lovely and talented, Samara Weaving. She opened up about taking on the project, and exploring a rarely talked about side of history. As for Lucy Boynton, it was a joy to chat with her about her take, and her role in this particular tale. And finally, we sat down with Kevlin Harrison Jr. who talked about playing this intriguing character. As well, the actor discussed his take on music and acting. Chevalier opens this Friday at a theatre near you.
