The star of Disney's new historical drama discusses FOMO, scream therapy and vampire facials
words Megan Wallace
Which woo is our way of getting to the heart of all the feel-good things that bring us joy, excitement and delight. In this series, we sit down with big names across music, film, TV and many more to find out what really moves them and, when it comes down to it, which wellness practice they’d choose when hard pressed.
ICYMI, Chevalier is the new Disney film exploring the fascinating true life story of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a Guadelope-born violinist and champion fencer who would go on to become a member of the Parisian court and excel as a composer and conductor. Despite the racism he faced throughout his life, he created renowned operas, concertos and symphonies. Despite being one of the key figures of the French music scene in the 18th century, he’s been largely written out of history. That’s why Chevalier is so important, serving as an opportunity to reacquaint audiences with this prolific talent.
Now, the film is available to watch in UK and Irish cinemas but, before its release, team woo was lucky enough to score some one-on-one time with the film’s lead: Kelvin Harrison Jr.. The rising actor has already appeared in movies like The High Note, Photograph and Waves and woked on projects alongisde actors such as Alexa Demie, Taylor Russell, Issa Rae and LaKeith Stanfield.
Watch on for an exclusive discussion of his wellness favourites as he weighs up FOMO vs ROMO, snail facials vs vampire facials, and moss smoothies vs oxygen shots.
Chevalier is released today (9 June) in UK and Irish cinemas
