Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling & Cast Attend ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Photocall In London
BLADE RUNNER 2049 LONDON PHOTOCALL
The actors took to the red carpet to promote their new film Blade Runner 2049, a reboot of the classic 1982 film of the same name. Ford wore a classic blue suit, sans tie, while Gosling wore an old-fashioned brown sweater and patterned brown jacket. Hoeks wore a silver skirt and top, and de Armas wore a shining green skirt/jacket combo.
So happy to be here with this magical bunch ❤️✨ @bladerunnermovie press in London 👘@christopherkane 💍@jenniferfisherjewelry 👠@pierrehardy 🙏🏼@chercoulter 💄@naokoscintu 💆🏻 @peterluxhair @hlopata #bladerunner2049 #london #presstour #photocall #fashion #christopherkane #pierrehardy #bladerunner #ryangosling #harrissonford #anadearmas #denisvilleneuve #rogerdeakins
Another article Gosling wore was his dog George’s dog tags in tribute to his canine friend. The actor rescued George from a shelter in 2002, and the pair have been nearly inseparable. “George is way more interesting than I am. I’d much rather talk about him,” Gosling said in a 2013 interview about the dog, calling him “the great love of my life.” “I wanted George here today, you know, doing interviews with me. Normally, I take him everywhere, I have special paperwork so he can travel with me wherever I go. Can we just talk about George?”
Unfortunately, Gosling was last seen with George when he and girlfriend Eva Mendes brought the dog to the vet covered in a blanket in 2016. It can be assumed that George is no longer with us, and that Gosling wears the tags in tribute.
Gosling and Ford both play the Blade Runner in the new film, and spoke about working together. “I thought it was my idea actually,” said Ford of Gosling playing the role. “And then it turned out that everybody else thought that it was perfect for Ryan as well. But I’d seen him in a couple of films and admired the work he did, and wanted to work with him. When I read this character I thought, ‘this is perfect.'”
For Gosling’s part, he said it was an honor to work with Ford. “The idea of it is intimidating, but I’m disappointed it’s over… He has such incredible focus and intensity while he’s working, that it’s really the perfect balance. And you just wish it could kinda be like that all the time.”
