Freida Pinto in British Vogue’s May Issue

Freida Pinto is featured in the May issue of the British edition of Vogue magazine to promote her new mini-series Guerrilla. She’s included in the “television portfolio” among other actresses such as Michelle Dockery, Kate Bosworth, Jenna Coleman and more. See a stunning picture of Freida in this post, and read a quote from her interview below. Magazine scans will be added as soon as we can get our hands on a copy. Check back later for that!

“I have to admit, I think the Brits had it right way before the Americans when it came to TV,” Freida Pinto said about filming Guerrilla – her first ever television role – in London. “I grew up in India watching British television and it was always intelligent and always entertaining. It felt like coming home.”

Freida Pinto Takes a Stance in “Guerrilla”

Freida Pinto thinks everyone would benefit from a little bit of improv.

“I think, even for people who aren’t actors, it is great to take an improv class. It is great to unleash something within you in an environment that is healthy instead of lashing out or heating up,” explains Pinto, colorful in a Temperley outfit on an otherwise gray New York day. “I kind of feel like I grow every day, learning so much about people — people that I don’t meet, but I play them — and so I learn to empathize more. I think this is the most important thing [for actors] because sometimes we play some unsavory characters.”

The Indian actress has picked up her first television role, starring alongside Idris Elba and Babou Ceesay in the limited Showtime series “Guerrilla.” The six episode political drama, which premieres on April 16, was produced and written by Oscar winner John Ridley, who also directed three episodes. The show is set in London in the politically and racially turbulent early Seventies amid the rise of the Black Power movement.

“I actually heard about the show last year in March, before the auditions and the casting process had even started. My team had already read the pilot episode and they were like, ‘There is a show that John Ridley is directing and has written as well, and there’s nothing to change about this character. It’s almost like it’s written for you,’” Pinto recalls. “But, obviously, it wasn’t written for me, and I had to go out and fight for it.”

9 Minutes with Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto Shows Her Passionate Side and Causes a Stir in Showtime’s “Guerrilla”

In the midst of the bleakness and despair that flavored much of 2008’s “Slumdog Millionaire,” Freida Pinto stood out.

The film, which won several Oscars, including best picture, marked Pinto’s breakthrough, and the lingering shot of her character Latika smiling radiantly from a train platform at her childhood friend and love of her life Jamal (Dev Patel) was one of the drama’s most memorable images.

But smiles do not come easily for Jas Mitra, the radical activist portrayed by the Indian actress in Showtime’s new limited series “Guerrilla,” which premieres Sunday. In the fictional drama, which takes place in 1971 London against the backdrop of the British urban guerrilla movement, Jas is fueled by a fierceness that has little tolerance for those who do not share her all-consuming quest for justice.

Accompanied by her less impulsive black boyfriend Marcus Hill (Babou Ceesay), Jas becomes even more uncompromising — and violent — as the couple head down a dangerous path.

“I’ve never been able to play somebody like this — I’ve never been given the chance,” Pinto said recently in a Pasadena hotel during a promotional stop for the six-episode drama created by Oscar winner John Ridley (“12 Years a Slave”).

“This is the kind of role that actors live for,” she added. “You can play characters that are good but don’t always show your range. I’ve always known that if you give me the chance, I’ll show you what I can do. I am so blessed that John saw in me the passion and the drive I have.”

Freida Pinto speaks for girls’ rights

Yesterday, Freida Pinto delivered a speech on rights and issues concerning girls and women, at the world’s first-ever summit for girls in Londo.

The summit, jointly organised by the government of United Kingdom and Unicef, is aimed at mobilising domestic and international efforts to end female genital mutilation (FGM) and child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) within this generation.

Freida delivered the closing speech along with the Deputy Prime Minister of UK.

FinancialExpress.com — “Girls and women have the right to live free from violence and discrimination and achieve their potential, but some are being prevented from doing so by harmful practices such as FGM and CEFM, which are illegal in the UK. Girls affected by child marriage and FGM are among the most vulnerable in the world,” Freida said in a statement here. Freida said that she looks forward to discussing how ending child marriage and FGM can preserve a girl’s childhood, promote her education, and reduce her exposure to violence and abuse, thus allowing her to make choices about her own future and fulfill her potential in life.

“More than 125 million girls and women alive today have suffered some form of FGM in the 29 countries where the practice is concentrated. UNICEF estimates that globally, around one in three young women aged 20 to 24 were married before the age of 18. Around 23 million girls entered into marriage before they reached 15,” the 26-year-old actress said. Freida said that she was concerned about the incidents of FGM and CEFM in India as well.

“It maybe a small community of people that practise it but no matter how small the number is its a violation of human rights and those girls are significant and important to us. We are aware that child marriage is a common practise in some communities but we also need to be aware of the full extent of its damage caused to these young lives physical and psychological,” Freida said.
