“Almost Famous” star Patrick Fugit reveals William and Penny’s fate
Almost known debuted exactly 20 years ago, on September 13, 2020, but the celebration continued until 2021.
The Cameron Crowe classic will receive 4K Ultra HD treatment from Paramount Home Entertainment on Tuesday, July 13, following the film’s very first soundtrack release as this limited-edition box set.
All of this led to Patrick Fugit, who played high school student William Miller as he joined the fictional group Stillwater for a Rolling stone magazine article, again in the spotlight. And the 38-year-old actor still has tea all those years later, including the fates of his character and Penny Lane (Kate Hudson).
“Cameron and I talked about it when we were [filming] in New York, and I asked him the same, ”Fugit told IndieWire. “I thought to myself, ‘Now that he knows Lady Goodman, do they ever go to Morocco? Do they ever do the things they say they’re going to do? ‘ And Cameron says, ‘Brother, no they don’t.’ “
“He said to me ‘But what William is going to find out is Polexia [Anna Paquin] a few years later, and they’ll have a relationship, ”he continued.“ They’ll have this amazing chemistry that they haven’t really followed. [before] because obviously William was in love with Penny Lane and Polexia was doing her own thing. The idea [with Penny] was like, ‘No, it’s just that thing that happened, and it’s that good memory, and it’s first love and stuff like that, but it’s never gonna happen. “
