Hi Martin -
Interface types, as they appear to Python, all have a single
argument constructor that you can use to "cast" an object to
a particular interface.
Because System.Activator.GetObject() has a return type of
object, the runtime returns the object as its true runtime
type to Python (which happens to be MarshalByRefObject).
So I think all you need to do is an "explicit cast":
remoteObj = System.Activator.GetObject(IToy, url)
mytoy = IToy(remoteObj)
Hope this helps,
