9 Minutes with Freida Pinto

“Guerrilla” Premieres Tonight on Showtime!

The day is finally here – Guerrilla premieres tonight on Showtime! Created by Academy Award-winner John Ridley, the six part mini-series was inspired by true events, and tells the story of a pair of activists in 1970s London set out to free a political prisoner and wage a resistance movement. Starring Freida Pinto, Idris Elba and Babou Ceesay, Guerrilla has received great reviews with terrific mentions for Freida.

Variety said “Pinto is exceptional in the role. The actress carries a certain gravitas into her role as Jas Mitra, and as a result she’s both hard to read but strangely familiar by the time the real fireworks start. Pinto proves to have enough heft as an actress that she can balance how zealously she is watched, and how symbolically she is interpreted, into a chin-upraised defiance that channels both Angela Davis and Patty Hearst — a chic icon that is either leading or childishly swept up in something vast and seething.”

Be sure to tune in to Showtime tonight at 9PM to watch the first part of Guerrilla. I have included a few trailers, clips and interviews in this post for you to watch before tonight’s episode. Enjoy!

Freida Pinto in the May Issue of In Style

Freida Pinto is currently gracing the pages of In Style magazine’s May issue (with Amy Schumer on the cover) talking about her career and new show Guerrilla. Pinto describes how voluntarily taking time away from the spotlight actually benefit her in the long run. “Staying silent work-wise for about two and a half years instead of taking every project that was going to objectify me or put me further into the box that I was already being put into was a big risk that I had to take, and it was a very frustrating risk.”

“It was years of anxiety, but it has paid off because it has made me realize that you only do what you’re passionate about, and things that really drive you, because everything else you will not put 100 percent into it.”

Photos from the editorial and magazine scans will be added when we can get our hands on them. Until then, enjoy!
