Ok, so Frances Fisher (Maggie) tweeted quite a bit about her work in ‘The Host’ in the past week or so and I’ve done my best to compile all of her posts here. People have really been bombarding the poor woman. If I was her, I’d be quitting Twitter :-P. There are some nice pictures, some small tidbits of interesting information, and some posts that may be a bit confusing. Hopefully we can figure out the confusing ones together :). I’ve posted them here starting with the farthest back I went and ending with the most recent ones.

@thehostrussia Finishing the caves next week. On to exteriors in New Mexico!
So, from these we can gather than New Mexico is the last place they will be filming and they will just be doing the New Mexico exteriors there. So when they’re done in New Mexico (which starts April 9th), that’ll be the end of filming. That seems very quick! And it’s still almost a year til its release in theatres. If they’re ending filming so soon, my guess is they’re waiting to release the film until after the last ‘Twilight’ movie has been released in November and is done with its theatre run.
3:30 pm Mar 30:
@Frances_Fisher! I’m from Russia. I wanted to ask if you’ve seen on the set of Boyd Holbrook?)) @LesyaPismennaya Boyd Holbrook, Jake Able, Max Irons, William Hurt – working with all of the boys!
1:30 am Mar 31:
With the more recent information that Boyd Holbrook is staying blonde, my guess is Jake Abel is also going to stay blonde, otherwise they wouldn’t be as similar as they need to be.

@Frances_Fisher We want a pic of The Host cast together!! Can’t wait to see all of you on the set.
And yet, she continues to tweet…
4 pm Apr 5th:
@Frances_Fisher Is it possible to get ‘Hello’ from Jake and Saoirse? Russia loves them.Thanks! PS-sorry, but they don’t answer..
7:30 pm Apr 5th:
@Frances_Fisher Hi Frances …I have very curious to know who will play Wes and Walter, can you tell us who the lucky or is it a secret? @ILoveIanOshea Don’t know
Come on guys, that would just get her in trouble 🙂
8 pm Apr 5th:
@Frances_Fisher Diane Kruger has already filmed a scene in the helicopter? And you have taken the slap in the face of Saoirse? @thehostbrasil All exteriors this month
I love how she doesn’t give answers half the time, but she redirects people to answers she’s allowed to give.
7:30 pm Apr 6th:
@Frances_Fisher Israeli fans very happy and excited about your casting as Maggie, Can you tell us a little about what happens in the movie? @the_host_israel Did you read the book? It follows the storyline
Good to know!
8 pm Apr 6th:
So they’ve finished filming in Louisiana at this point…

@Frances_Fisher Israeli fans very happy about your casting, how is it working with the rest of the cast? Do you agree with your character? @the_host_israel It’s my job as an actress to understand my character and portray her point of view.
Sounds like she’s really getting into the mind of her character, looking at these previous tweets.
@Frances_Fisher The Host fans are very interested in the question – who plays the role of Sharon and the Wanderer in a new body? @LanaBayun Can’t say, sorry!
Yes, of course, the production company won’t release this information, but hey, maybe if we keep asking the actors they’ll slip up. 😛 Not likely, guys. Give it a rest…
That’s precisely what they’re doing! I think it was in my previous article that I talked about the whole secrecy issue and postulated about reasons why they might be holding onto this information so tightly. Jump back to that post if you want to join in on that discussion.
At 12:30 pm yesterday she retweeted a garbled tweet from one of her fans/friends, but I was able to find the two tweets after it that clarify. Again, it’s just more frustrations over the desire for information versus keeping the project under wraps for now.
@Frances_Fisher I meant that four years have passed since the publication of the book and another year to wait for the film, it’s so long @LanaBayun Awww – I understand. It’s worth waiting for – it will be spectacular!
A little before 3 pm yesterday, she responded to this tweet about who would be cast as Doc in the film:
This is in response to Fisher announcing through twitter on 3/28 that Scott Lawrence would be playing Doc in the film. This has not been corroborated by any of those in charge of the project, yet, however. You can check him out in our previous post about this announcement.
Almost 24 hours ago, Fisher responded to a question from a French ‘The Host’ fan site about her hair color for the film:
I’m guessing this question was in response to the previous post Fisher made yesterday about her hair being white now:
Just before that a Brazilian ‘The Host’ fan site tried to ask her about some of the other casting choices, but she remained tight-lipped, as expected:
Again, no slipping up!
Yesterday she tweeted about how she was traveling to New Mexico to start her work on ‘The Host’ project:
She posted this tweet and the following picture of New Mexico yesterday when she first arrived in Albuquerque:
She also tweeted yesterday about a question somebody asked about Boyd Holbrook’s hair.
Here is a picture of Boyd Holbrook (Kyle O’Shea) as his natural blonde:
She also posted a picture today of New Mexico, presumably near where they are filming. You can see the picture she tweeted below:
Looks like a typical desert to me ;). It’s a beautiful shot. Hopefully we get some good images of the desert in the film when Wanderer is lost in the desert before she is ‘rescued’. What are your thoughts on Boyd keeping his hair blonde for the part? In the books I believe Kyle and Ian both had dark hair with bright blue eyes, but I could be wrong. Of course, this stuff is minor compared to whether they can act or not, so that’s the part I’m more interested in.
