EXCLUSIVE: Claire Foy Talks ‘Season of the Witch’

Without giving too much away, in the movie your character is accused of being a witch but throughout the film denies it, and eventually the truth is revealed at the end. Was it difficult approaching this role and planting the seeds for the eventual ending without giving too much away too early?

Claire Foy: I loved it. I quite liked having a bit of a secret. It's quite nice and it's also quite a challenge to not play the end game. You don't want to let the audience know what is going to happen in the end. What you have to do as an actress is suspend belief and play every scene rather than everything the character is going to do. If you did that you wouldn't be able to get out of bed in the morning. You just have to play what they are going to do in that one moment, not the grand scheme of things. In a weird way I didn't want it to be really obvious and I wanted it to be ambiguous I suppose. So I didn't want to give too much away. I also wanted it so that if someone watched it again they might see clues leading to what happens and piece it together. I love doing that when I'm watching films so I hope people will do that with this one. You can't think about stuff like that because you wouldn't be able to do the scene. You can't think about it because it wouldn't be doable. You have to convince yourself to play the intention in that scene, but many of the intentions of my character are veiled and I have to keep that secret from the men. I couldn't go out and yell, "This is what I am going to do!" I had to play that cool.
