Interview: Jack Lowden & Ophelia Lovibond Dish About “Tommy’s Honour”

Filmed over a year ago against the backdrop of Scotland’s stunning countryside, Jason Connery’s unique golf drama Tommy’s Honour is full of triumph, jubilation and tragedy.  As we watch the sport’s First Family learn to respect and admire one another, they soon realize that they all are more than their abilities to sink a put. .

Jack Lowden and Ophelia Lovibond have embodied a plethora of characters since filming rapped in late 2015.  But they each hold fond memories of their time in Scotland as Tommy Morris and his wife Meg respectively.  The film is a unique character study set to the game of golf; with the Master’s just wrapping, people are hungry for a story about a man who still holds the record for youngest golfer to ever win an Open Championship.

Check out our interview with the two actors as we discuss the film, the game and what its like to play real people.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
