Luke Treadaway And Natalia Tena On You Instead
On their indie festival romance

submit to reddit

Like Dublin-set romance Once with wellies on and a can of lager in its hand, You Instead is a musical affair set amid the mud and festival joys of T In The Park. It stars Luke Treadaway as the lead singer of a Killers-like indie band and Natalia Tena as an indie star in the making. Throw in a pair of handcuffs, two unsatisfying relationships and some feisty chemistry and you've got all the makings of a uniquely British romance that's 'indie' in every sense of the word. The Attack The Block actor and his talented co-star talked Empire through the film's breakneck shoot and the experience of having to wow 40,000 Scottish musos. Tena, lead singer of festival veterans Molotov Jukebox, had a bit of a head start on this one. Plus, she's Nymphadora Tonks so she knows magic. Which probably wouldn't have hurt.
