Matthew Macfadyen Talks About “Anna Karenina” 


The last time I spoke with Mr. Matthew was for Universal’s “Frost/Nixon,” and that was four years ago! So I was looking forward to sitting down with him for the new period drama, “Anna Karenina,” starring Keira Knightley in the title role.

In the film, Macfadyen plays Oblonsky, a civil servant and Anna’s brother. Macfadyen embodies the role of the man about town to a T. In this interview we talked about:

His role as a catalyst to pull us into the movie
The theme of love of “Anna Karenina”
What attracted him to starring in the movie?
“Anna Karenina’s” post-modernism
The film’s dazzling audio and visual work
How did he prepare for the role?
The film’s resonating line – will you die for love – will Matthew Macfadyen die for love?
