Sebastian Stan visits ‘mystery city’ for Tulsa Wizard World appearance

Sebastian Stan visits ‘mystery city’ for Tulsa Wizard World appearance

Actor Sebastian Stan participated in a question-and-answer session Saturday at the Wizard World Tulsa pop culture convention.

After walking on stage and being introduced amid audience squeals, Stan said he was in a “mystery city” he used to hear about on the TV series “Friends.”

“This is where Chandler got into all that trouble,” Stan said.

Chandler Bing, Matthew Perry’s character on “Friends,” was temporarily relocated to Tulsa for work during the series.

Topics during Stan’s panel:

•Asked what storyline so far is his favorite as an actor, Stan picked the Winter Soldier saga because there is still unexplored territory with the character, which has appeared in multiple Marvel films.

“We still need to go back and figure some things out there,” Stan said, indicating he would like to fill in some blanks in the Winter Soldier’s history.
Stan, asked by the moderator if he was dropping hints about a possible movie, said, “I wish. I’m apparently campaigning for it without even really realizing it.”

•Stan said being curious worked in his favor. He encouraged audience members to be curious. He said he was curious to find role models once he “clicked” with acting while in college. He read biographies and discovered that Steve McQueen and other successful actors had troubled pasts. He said rough patches in life may be gifts you can learn from.
“That’s almost every superhero story,” he said.

Fave biography? “I just read all the acting ones from Pacino to Brando to DeNiro to Steve McQueen,” he said.

“The problem for me is these people just totally seemed like they were gods. Everyone idolized them.”

But Stan said those actors didn’t start out that way. “We made them into gods,” he said. “They just found a way to make themselves available.”

•Stan said he (gasp!) hasn’t seen “The Walking Dead,” but he watches “Game of Thrones” and “Stranger Things.”

•Does Stan watch a lot of his own movies? “After consuming a lot of alcohol, I do,” he said, adding that it’s hard to watch your own movies and it gets easier after the passage of time “and have kind of moved on.”

•Stan was asked what the Winter Soldier’s last thoughts were when he was going back on ice at the end of “Captain America: Civil War.” On-stage joking between the moderator and Stan ranged from “my arm itches” to “should’ve had dessert.” Stan then surmised that the Winter Soldier is in a place of relief because, after being “followed by this shadow such a long time,” that the character can kind of “just chill.” No pun was intended.

Said Stan: “Who is to say that whatever they put him to sleep with doesn’t give him nice dreams?”

Sebastian Stan to Star in Thriller ‘We Have Always Lived in the Castle’

Sebastian Stan, best known for playing the Winter Soldier in Marvel’s Captain America movies, is set to star in We Have Always Lived in the Castle, an adaptation of the 1962 story by Shirley Jackson.

One of the better known stories by Jackson, a 20th century horror writer best known for her novel The Haunting of Hill House, the plot centers on an isolated family, which has already lost four members to poisoning, that uses rituals and talismans to keep itself away from hostile townspeople. Into this scenario arrives a distant cousin, intent on maliciously securing the family’s fortune and whose arrival sets in motion the uncovering of family secrets.

Stan will play the cousin, Charles Blackwood. Passon wrote the adaptation with Mark Kruger.

The feature, which is to begin shooting this month in Dublin, will be a Further Films in association with Great Point Media presentation.

This is the first time the story is being adapted for the screen. It was previously translated into a play as well as a musical.

Stan is coming off of Captain America: Civil War, one of the year’s more acclaimed movies that has grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide. The actor, who recently wrapped the indie I’m Not Here with Maika Monroe and J.K. Simmons, will shoot Avengers: Infinity War early next year.

GQ Magazine: Sebastian Stan on Social Media, Style, and Life After Captain America

GQ Magazine: Sebastian Stan on Social Media, Style, and Life After Captain America

While Sebastian Stan has been working consistently for the past decade—in movies like Black Swan and last year’s The Martian, and the TV shows Gossip Girl and Once Upon a Time—this summer he got a high-profile break with a vastly expanded role in the film Captain America: Civil War. As Bucky, Stan became a vital role to the latest chapter in the Marvel film series, starring alongside GQ Style cover Robert Downey Jr. and Anthony Mackie. And speaking of GQ Style, Stan tried on the season’s slickest sunglasses for the debut issue. We caught up with the actor last week on one of those perfect NYC spring days, the kind that give him anxiety, and talked social media, his relationship with the fashion community, and his thoughts on Bucky and Captain America’s rumored gay relationship.

GQ: Are you based in New York?
I am, I am. I’m seeing this beautiful weather right now. It’s so pretty it’s giving me anxiety.

Why?
Because I feel like I have to go live life, every day.

What do you do when it’s nice out, to take advantage?
Oh, the usual. Just run six miles, read a novel, go out until three. Everything. [laughs] I’m joking. Probably like five minutes of each of those things.

Can you just run around the streets?
Yeah, it’s New York. Nobody cares. I ran by the West Side Highway yesterday; it was fantastic.

Do you ever get double takes?
No, but today I did run into a fan on the street that I recognize from some of the conventions. Some of the fans are so loyal you end up seeing them again and again at different things. So I ran into her on the street, and you always think, Oh, hey. I thought I know you. But then you think…Is this really a coincidence? I never try to share my location, you know?

You mean on social media?
Yeah. Well, I was so against social media for such a long time, but now I can’t live without it.

You’re very active on Instagram.
It’s part of the world that we’re in now, it really is. I understand the way that it fits into my business, in all of our businesses. Like the other night at the CFDA Awards, where I went with Todd Snyder; it was a great opportunity. A) It was a fun night, and B) It’s a great partnership. And then I feel like you have to connect with fans; individual connection is important. It never used to be that way. It used to be—I’m talking 30, 40 years ago—the less people knew about you, the better, the more different roles you could play. There’s a pro and a con to the whole thing. What I find is that the individual connections you have with fans that transpire—once you get a great message or see some artwork, it’s really humbling. I see it as a plus in that regard.

You have a strong theater background. Will you be doing more of that anytime soon?
I love it. I wish I could do more of it. With theater, it’s about a more specific window. It comes down to availability. The commitment there is every night, eight shows a week, and I feel like it’s even more important to connect with the material and to really like what you’re doing, because you’re doing the same thing every night. So you’re looking for something like that, but that fits in a very specific window. It’s not easy to find that, but I’m always looking for it. Theater is the most challenging thing to do, it’s just you out there with no rope. You can’t call time out, you’re on a roller coaster.

You went to that famous theater camp, Stagedoor Manor, when you were younger. What was that experience like?
It was a magical, magical place. The time that I was there was a very particular time. First of all, there were no cell phones. The first thing they did when you get there is say you’re not allowed to contact your parents, you’re not allowed to contact your friends. There were no distractions. You were forced to embrace your environment. It breaks you out of your shell, and I ended up with some amazing friendships from there. I met my manager there, and we’ve been together for 17 years. It’s a really special place. It was heartbreaking saying goodbye and going home. It was fucking real, man. This was before Glee! This was like, are you at the cool table or not? Or at the respected table. There are always hierarchies and stuff—it’s just a product of those environments—but at Stagedoor, everyone was embraced. Continue reading
