FAULT Film: Lana Condor Makes Her Explosive Debut in X-Men and FAULT ISsue 23

 

Acting in your first ever movie can be a very stressful time for any actor and not made easier when there’s a large fanfare around the project. Enter, Lana Condor. This month Lana make her big-screen debut playing ‘Jubliee’ in X-Men Apocalypse. Like many of the other characters in the movie, this won’t be the first time we’ll be seeing Jubilee in the movies however this will be the first time the character is used for more than just an Easter egg or throw away reference for the keen eyed.

For those who grew up with the 90’s X-Men animated series have a very soft spot for Jubilee. The majorly underused (and somewhat under-appreciated) X-Woman has defied the odds and become a character dear to many X-Men fans…So no pressure Lana!

As part of our FAULT #23  X-Men Special we caught up with Lana to find out more about Jubilee and see just where the character fits in the larger X-Men film Universe.

 

FAULT: X-men will be your big screen debut, what was it like to land a spot on such a big production for your first gig?

Lana: Very very surreal. It’s been a very humbling experience for me coming out of X-Men because I have realized things don’t happen in a vacuum, and that I was very blessed to have landed such an amazing project so early on in my career. While on set, I got to learn from some of the best which was definitely one the highlights. Just watching my castmates perform was very inspiring, let alone acting alongside them.

 

Are we going to see the badass 80’s mall rat Jubilee or will her character focus more on her vulnerability and youthfulness? 

We will focus more on her vulnerability and youthfulness. She’s still learning about her powers and developing them. Although I would be honoured to see the badass mall rat come more to life! She’s a kick-butty type of girl!

 

Jubilee has appeared in the previous X-Men films however has not had many lines and never displayed her powers! Now we see that she is doing both in the movie. Were you able to inject must personality into the character?

I tried to keep it as close to the comics/ cartoon as possible. I really want to do her fans justice!

 

Jubilee often gets ranked as the mutant with the most useless powers but at the same time is VERY dear to the fans of X-men. Is it daunting to take the mantle of such a popular character? Comic book fans aren’t very forgiving!

Well… since you put it that way… now I won’t be able to sleep at night! [laughs] but Yes. There has definitely been times where I really feel very nervous because I do not want to let her fans down. They are so devoted to her and I really admire that. It’s amazing, I’ve really learned that she means (as well as all the other characters) a lot to people. Maybe she reminds them of their childhood or was an escape for certain people. She certainly means a lot to me. So yes, the pressure to do her proper justice can be intimidating. But I also have to realise that some things are just not in my control.

Boy George Photoshoot & Interview For FAULT Magazine Issue 23 Cover

 

Within the court of British pop royalty, Boy George sits on top of a (impeccably decorated) throne. Throughout his decade-spanning career he’s topped charts, collaborated with superstars, travelled the world and seen more than his fair share of controversy. He can now be found judging Britain’s latest batch of new talent on BBC One’s The Voice.

Boy George appears on the cover of FAULT Magazine Issue 23 (available for preorder now). 

 

Boy-2 

Congratulations on your work on The Voice so far. Did you have any reservations about joining the show? 

Not really. I think my only reservation was how involved I would be with the people that I chose; whether I could have any kind of impact on what they did. And, to my surprise, it is very interactive. You can get as involved as you want to.

 

 

You’ve had your fair share of demons: drugs, incarceration, negative press attention. How has this shaped you and your music?

Everything that happens shapes you and influences what you do, but I don’t tend to focus on the past. Why would I look back? Difficult things inform my writing but – if you want other people to move on – then you have to move on yourself… I try to live in the now – it’s the only sensible time to live. Living in the past or future is a bit insane: sometimes, in relationships, people spend all their time worrying about what the other person’s thinking or feeling, and get so engrossed in it that they miss living. I think it’s important to live in the now and not focus too much on what went wrong. Just learn from it and move on.

What else does the future hold in store for you?

[Culture Club} have got a tour coming up in the summer. I’m also doing stuff on my own: I’ve got a tour with Cyndi Lauper in about a month on the East Coast of America. At the moment I’m trying to build my empire, so anything’s possible.

 

Who excites you musically at the moment?

I really like Christine and The Queens. The music they make is really beautiful. It’s in French though, so it’s a bit difficult to understand, but you don’t really need to. I’ve also been getting back into Kate Bush: recently I came home, laid on the floor and listened to Hounds of Love in it’s entirety, and it was wonderful. You can really learn from the way people made records in the past. People had more freedom.

I like Stromae as well: I think he’s the best pop star at the moment. He’s really androgynous, and really out there.

 

Finally, what is your fault?

Where do we start! My weakness is probably…bread! Haha – I have no patience. I’m completely impatient.
