Chris Noth at La Costa Film Festival
We sit down for an exlusive one on one interview with Chris Noth at the 2016 La Costa Film Festival. Chris is being honored with the Shining Star Award which was created to honor a film or television artist that has not simply exhibited great talent in their work in front of or behind the camera, but also represents the film and television industry with integrity.
Two time Golden Globe nominee and four time SAG award nominee, Noth, sits down with us to talk about his career, and how it feels to be receiving the award at the festival. We find out how he prepares for a role and how he feels about being the iconic strong, charismatic male in many of the roles that he plays! We find out about his latest cable obsessions and his favorite tv shows.
Chris received LCFF’s Shining Star Award “under the stars” at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa on the occasion of a year in which the actor has shined in distinctive performances in television and film, most recently the critically-acclaimed independent film WHITE GIRL and shows like The Good Wife, and Tyrant.
The award ceremony reflected on his celebrated career and offered a rare opportunity to hear him discuss his signature characters and performances from shows like Law and Order, Sex and the City, and The Good Wife as well as films like LOVELACE, and SEX AND THE CITY, with rarely seen and specially selected clips from his early career such as TNT’s Julius Caesar, EXILED, a Law & Order Movie, and one of his first films, SMITHEREENS, directed by Susan Seidelman. The conversation was moderated by entertainment awards expert and commentator Dave Karger.
Rising to prominence as Detective Mike Logan on the original Law and Order, from 1990-1995, before going on to play the iconic Mr. Big on HBO’s groundbreaking series Sex and the City, Noth earned his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, as well as starring in the two block- buster movies based on the series – SEX AND THE CITY, and SEX AND THE CITY 2. He followed with a critically lauded turn as the flawed and powerful Peter Florrick opposite Juliana Margolis on the CBS hit drama The Good Wife. His complex performance earned him a second Golden Globe nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, as well as four SAG nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
We were so excited to have this opportunity to talk with Chris and think he is truly fabulous!
