Simon Russell Beale, Ruth Wilson, Hayley Atwell, Samuel West. Television - The Prisoner. Film - Dagenham Girls.

  • Simon will star in Deathtrap by Ira Levin at Wyndham's [link]
  • Ruth interview from WWD. Excerpts:
    "'...[The Prisoner is] quite weird,' says Wilson. 'We all have numbers rather than names. To some people it will make no sense, to other people it will be some kind of philosophical story.'
    ...she's working on putting on a film festival for female writers with Atwell and Emma Thompson. 'Producers [say] women don’t bring in the money,' says Wilson. 'That's the aim of the festival: for writers to start improving women's roles. And not to write boring dramas…[but] action movies and genre movies...'"
  • Sam interview about his favourite teacher [link]
  • Dagenham Girls (formerly titled We Want Sex) has begun filming. The film stars Sally Hawkins, Andrea Riseborough and Rosamund Pike. [link]
