I AM ROGUE Talks with Seth Gabel

Posted by ALLEGIANCE on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, In : Interviews 


IAR: In the research that you did for the role, did you find that dilemma to be common for many soldiers? Not necessarily the AWOL aspect, but the idea of choosing between home and family, and their own unit?

Gabel: Yeah! It was tough because I think a lot of the guys in the National Guard when they were called up were able to make the choice, and a lot of the guys weren’t able to make the choice whether or not they were going to go. So it’s really difficult because you’re so close to...

ASSIGNMENT X Grills Seth Gabel

Posted by Sean Mullin on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, In : Interviews 


AX: There are a lot of different sides to Danny’s character. When we meet him, he’s doing a wheeler-dealer thing …

Gabel: Yeah, the big thing was that Sefton was incredibly resourceful and knew how to be strategic with people. I think he would see himself as someone who didn’t manipulate people, but he allowed himself to be strategic with people. What’s fun about that scene where you see him acquire Gore-Tex for the unit, perhaps in a way that’s not completely honest, was my goo...

Q: What was your working relationship together like while you were filming 'Allegiance?' How closely did you collaborate during the shoot?

Aidan:
It became very work-oriented, because we worked right through the script. (laughs) We did four scenes in one day. We started with a big monologue of mine, so we got right to work. We did a lot of movements at a lot of locations. We wouldn't have been...

Bow Wow in ALLEGIANCE on The Hitlist at MSN MOVIES

Posted by ALLEGIANCE on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, In : Interviews 


MSN: Working that closely with the other guys in this film must have been a very bonding experience.

Bow Wow: It felt like we were really in the army! We spent a lot of time together in one room, there was no favoritism of any kind for any of the actors. We thought, okay, let’s do this for real and get down to the nitty-gritty. It was all very intense and had such a camaraderie that there were times where we didn't even feel like we were acting. It was all part of our lives at that point ...

COLLIDER Converges with Seth Gabel on ALLEGIANCE

Posted by ALLEGIANCE on Friday, January 18, 2013, In : Interviews 


Interview with Seth Gabel by Christina Radish.

CHRISTINA (COLLIDER):
What was the boot camp experience like for you?

GABEL: I’ve always had the fantasy of doing a boot camp for a military film, at some point. I’ve always wanted to know what the experience is like, to feel that mounting pressure of going off to war and needing to be so present and physically aware of your body because you ultimately need to fight for your life and for your country. I really wanted to know what that was l...

MovieWeb talks ALLEGIANCE with Seth Gabel

Posted by ALLEGIANCE on Wednesday, January 16, 2013, In : Interviews 


MovieWeb: Was there anything in particular that surprised you about what they have to go through on a daily basis?

Seth Gabel: You have a general sense of things when you watch other war films, the discipline, the structure, and the code of conduct. What was really amazing to experience first-hand, is being in a system where everyone understands the discipline and the conduct, and also how you work around that. You bond with people, and you choose to break rules, from time to time. Or perha...

Rama's Screen Interview with Seth Gabel

Posted by ALLEGIANCE on Wednesday, January 16, 2013, In : Interviews 


Rama's Screen: With military themed films like this, the actors usually go through combat or weapons training to prepare them for their roles but this is more of a military drama/thriller type much in the veins of A Few Good Men, so what kind of preparations did you do for your role?

Seth Gabel: We had a boot camp and a lot of rehearsals and what was great about that is we were able to really bond with the cast, we were able to really know authentically act and behave like a soldier and und...

HuffPost TV Interviews Seth Gabel

Posted by ALLEGIANCE on Sunday, January 13, 2013, In : Interviews 


In a two part interview with Laura Prudom, Seth Gabel talks playing Arrow's new supervillian (Part 1), Allegiance and the end of Fringe (Part 2):


Prudom (HuffPost TV):
I loved that there was no attempt to demonize any of the characters. Everyone is morally justified in the decisions they make, and it's very much about the shades of gray, rather than everything being simplistic black and white, right and wrong.

Gabel: Yeah, it’s up to our audience members to decide morally what you think is ri...

Filmmaker Magazine Interviews Director Michael Connors

Posted by ALLEGIANCE on Thursday, January 10, 2013, In : Interviews 


Harris (Filmmaker):
One of the most intriguing aspects of the movie is the palpable ambivalence we feel toward many of the characters’ choices – no one is necessarily right in this situation from a moral standpoint. Was that a starting point for you, to make something of such moral ambiguity, and if not, what was?

Connors: Yes, one of the things that I always found interesting about my own military experience is the constant choice between “two rights” or “two wrongs.” Most militar...

KLBJ RADIO Interview with Director Michael Connors

Posted by ALLEGIANCE on Tuesday, January 8, 2013, In : Interviews 



Ryan Harris of KLBJ Radio (Austin, TX) interviewed Michael Connors at the 2012 Austin Film Festival and Conference


KLBJ: The location for Allegiance looked like an actual National Guard base, was it an actual base?

Michael Connors: Yes, long story. But we didn’t get permission from the Pentagon to make this movie with army cooperation. So we were forced to make it on deactivated old National Guard bases. So we shot on, it was actually a combination of three separate locations that made up t...
