Conan O’Brien has left late night television after 28 years. Here is Kate Beckinsale talking to O’Brien, about how she picked up her excellent American accent, that she used in The Last Days of Disco.

Suggest a ‘The Last Days of Disco’ Funko Pop Figure
Mira Sorvino, who played Marta in Barcelona, now has a Funko Pop figure for Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.
We thought it would be cool if there was a Funko Pop figure for Kate Beckinsale & Chloe Sevigny, from Whit Stillman’s The Last Days of Disco. We definitely think it would be a popular set. Some are now worth thousands.
Funko takes submissions, so please send in a request for that duo or any other characters from Stillman’s films.

‘L&F’ Film and Novel Available Down Under + Film Idea
Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship is available in Australia in both the film and novel versions.
Also an older interview of Stillman by Jessica Ellicott for SBS in which Stillman talks about the making of Love & Friendship, plus a vague idea for film with Kate Beckinsale.
‘The director of ‘Love & Friendship’ on adapting Jane Austen, classic Hollywood comedies and “doing justice” to much loved classics’ by Jessica Ellicott for SBS, (July 14, 2016).
Yes, but very likable in the same charming way that Lady Susan is in your film. Do you think there could have been a Golden Age of Hollywood version of Love & Friendship?
I don’t know, I suppose so. They would normally put this kind of story in a present-day setting. I’m not sure what they would have done with a period setting. But actually, Kate and I are both very interested in doing a ’30s flavoured film, so I think you’re right that those could be inspirations.
