Anna Geislerová Talks About 'Anthropoid' Cast and Mentions Jamie
In the film, Kubiš is played by the Jamie Dornan, who’s visitingKarlovy Vary for the second time. What about Cillian Murphy, the great Irish actor, who plays your partner Jozef Gabčík? What was he like?
Anna Geislerová: Cillian and I play an older and more distinguished couple. He’s quite introverted and commands great respect at first sight, but when someone like that smiles at you, you adore him forever… It was great how Cillian and Jamie got along, too, as though they’ve known each other for years; they forged a bond which in my opinion will remain strong for a long time. The Canadian actress Charlotte Le Bon, who plays Kubiš’s girlfriend Marie Kovárníková, was also outstanding. She’s incredibly lucky to have been bestowed with great beauty, intelligence, a sense of humor and talent – besides acting, she is also a photographer and painter. They’re really interesting, competent people with inner freedom, and I’m grateful I was able to work with them, as well as with all the Czech actors – Václav Neužil, Alena Mihulová, Roman Zach – along with the great Polish actor Marcin Dorociński and Briton Toby Jones.
