Who is sierra boggess dating

Ramin Karimloo, who played the Phantom in the 25th anniversary recording of The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall, and Sierra Boggess, his Christine, took time out of their busy schedules to chat to Radio about the production - Ramin after the cast screening of the finished film, and Sierra on the phone from New York. Radio Times: What do you think of the finished film/DVD?

Ramin Karimloo: It took me a while to watch scenes – I don’t think I watched any of my first act stuff – but I don’t want to see my finished product, I just want to remember the journey.

But I thought as it was shot so beautifully, out of respect to other people’s work… it’s hard to not critique yourself [but] I tried to just be in it as a spectator as opposed to, “What was I doing? But by the time we hit the second act I was more used to seeing myself on a big screen.

Sierra Boggess: I haven’t seen the one they’ve made into the DVD but when I came back to New York, [I went with] Rosemary Ashe, who played the Confidante in the show with us and who was the original Carlotta, to the cinema - we had our hats on - and we were so fascinated to see what it would be like. RK: For some scenes, I would ask Laurence (Connor), who was directing: “What vision do you have for this scene that you want on the camera?

” But what I love about the actors I look up to - like Daniel Day-Lewis and Ryan Gosling - it’s like they forget about the camera.

So there’s that element of: as long as you do your preparation, your back story, your research…

when you come out and just live a part, I think whether it’s on a theatrical stage or on camera, truth will be picked up.

As long as it’s truthful, I don’t think you can go too far with it.

SB: Our director was pretty camera oriented during rehearsals, thinking: “I want to change the blocking a bit so that this would be a really good camera angle”, but it was all kept quiet from us, which I was so grateful for, because I could just do job as an actor and not worry about any of those technical aspects.

RT: We’re seeing more and more theatre being filmed for the cinema. I think that as artists we’re melding genres - screen actors are coming and starring on Broadway now, and more and more Broadway people are trying to get into television, and I’m sure the same is happening in the West End.

Do you think this is a reflection of the fact that actors are moving more easily between film, TV and theatre now than perhaps they did in the past – or is it more a case of audience demand? I think we’re all just peering over the fence at each other, like, “oh, maybe I’ll try that”. But I think actors were always capable of doing that.

It’s maybe the producers and casting [people] that might’ve felt there’s always a divide between the two – but, you know, actors who’ve got craft can easily do that.
