A couple of days ago Lucy on October 20th attended the Australians In Film’s 5th Annual Awards Gala at the NeueHouse Hollywood in Los Angeles, California. I just added the high quality photos to our gallery! Feel free to browse through our pictures using the gallery link below.
Mr. Church tells the beautifully human story of a unique friendship that develops when a talented cook, named Henry Joseph Church (Eddie Murphy), comes into the lives of a little girl and her dying mother. Set in Los Angeles in 1965, Mr. Church finds himself in the position of father figure to Charlotte “Charlie” Brody (Britt Robertson) and, as the six-month arrangements ends up enduring for 15 years, the unlikely pair end up learning many life lessons from each other. Outside of the bonds she has with her mother and with Mr. Church, the only other constant in Charlie’s life is her best friend Poppy (Lucy Fry), whose own personal ambitions set the two down very different life paths.
At the recent Los Angeles press day for the film, I got the opportunity to sit down with Lucy Fry for an exclusive video interview. She talked about the film’s true story, wanting to work with director Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy), her character’s obsession with appearance, taking inspiration from The Real Housewives of New York City, bonding with Britt Robertson, and sharing screen time with Eddie Murphy. She also talked about being drawn to outsider characters, the appeal of Wolf Creek, and her experience playing the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald in 11.22.63. Watch what she had to say above.
Mr. Church also stars Natascha McElhone, Lucy Fry, Xavier Samuel, and Mckenna Grace. Here’s the synopsis:
Mr. Church tells the story of a unique friendship that develops when a little girl and her dying mother retain the services of a talented cook – Henry Joseph Church. What begins as a six month arrangement instead spans into fifteen years and creates a family bond that lasts forever.
Today happened the premiere for the new movie ‘Mr. Church‘ at Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles, California. Lucy attended this event and was seen with a lot of different celebrities like Britt Robertson and producer Mark Canton. We have 69 amazing high quality pictures of this event on our gallery, go check it out!
Pop president Brad Schwartz introduced a panel for the new Pop TV series Wolf Creek (based on the horror movie franchise) as the story of “a strong empathetic woman overcoming a psychopathic monster.
“Anyone get that?’ the executive added when the line failed to draw much reaction.
On a more serious note, Schwartz described the new series as a perfect fit with Pop’s intent to celebrate “fandom” by expanding the Pop brand to include the cult favorite. “It’s a way for us to get into drama” with a popular saga, Schwartz said.
In the six-episode series— with a previously announced Oct. 14 premiere — John Jarratt reprises his movie role as serial killer Mick Taylor. But unlike the movie, here Mick meets his match in Eve Thorogood (Lucy Fry), an American college student visiting the Australian outback with her family. When Mick preys on the family, Lucy survives and becomes his relentless pursuer.
Produced in Australia, the first-season episodes premiered earlier in the year in Australia. Series EP Greg McLean (also writer, director and producer of the movies) says the series is already a “massive hit” down under. He said that the movies had “played fairly well” there and audiences responded to having a female character leading a revenge drama: “It’s entertaining as hell.”
Australian actor John Jarratt’s Outback-based serial killer Mick Taylor has twice terrified cinema audiences — first in 2005’s Wolf Creek and then its 2013 sequel Wolf Creek 2. Now, Wolf Creek is migrating to the small screen in the form of a six-episode limited series, which premieres Oct. 14 on Pop. Executive producer Greg McLean, who also directed the two films, is keen to reassure horror fans that Taylor has lost none of his psychotic ways in the course of the transition.
“I think he may be getting more deranged, actually,” says the filmmaker, who also directed the recent horror film The Darkness. “He gets crazier as he goes on. He’s certainly a little more liberal in his killings in the series. Our No. 1 priority was to not television-ize what the movies were. We absolutely wanted it to be as cinematic, and impactful, as the movies, and not really pull back on any of the content.”
Eureka Entertainment have nabbed the rights to the TV series Wolf Creek with the show airing on FOX UK from August 30th.
Based on the film of the same name, Wolf Creek sees American teen Eve Throrogood (Lucy Fry) on holiday in Australia with her family when they’re targeted by outback killer Mick Taylor (John Jarratt). A seriously injured Eve survives the assault and vows to bring the killer to justice .
Wolf Creek starts on FOX UK on Tuesday 30th August with the first episode available On Demand on Thursday 1st September 2016 and the following 5 episodes every subsequent Thursday. It will be available as download to own (DTO) via iTunes, Amazon, PS and Xbox and the full season will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 6th.

Lucy did a photo session for the fashion website called Who What Wear recently and I just added some of the pictures of this shoot on our gallery! Besides that, they interviewed Lucy. You can check out the images down below and also the interview!
WHO WHAT WEAR: We know you grew up in Australia and moved to Los Angeles a few years ago. How has the adjustment been? Are you enjoying life in L.A.?
LUCY FRY: I really love the community I have here now. I have a bunch of really good friends from Australia who live here. It feels really supportive, and I love all the opportunities here and the acting classes I can take, and the access you have to amazing directors and producers. There’s so much possibility here. I love going home to work, I love being at home, and I miss my family, but I guess the ultimate dream is to have the best of both worlds.
WWW: There are a lot of Aussie expats here, like Teresa Palmer, Phoebe Tonkin, and Bella Heathcote. Do you hang out with any of these ladies?
LF: I hang out with Isabel Lucas a lot. I love her; she’s such an amazing person. She’s really helped me settle in here too, and she runs a mediation every Monday where some of us girls get together and meditate. It’s really nice, and it has introduced me to a sense of community. She’s really great.
WWW: Let’s talk acting. Has this career path always been of interest to you?
