About

My blog has quite a lot of posts about Samuel West (On Chesil Beach and Darkest Hour) and Charles Edwards (My Fair Lady Australian tour and The Halcyon).
I have also written some posts about diversity in the entertainment industry.

Ruth Wilson, Andrea Riseborough, Parade's End, BBC Radio

Series 2 of Luther begins Tuesday 14 June (BBC press office). A bit of publicity - Stylist has an interview with Ruth. And she appears briefly in this trailer for the show (click the thumbnail for full size):

Ruth took part in the Josephine Hart poetry week at the Donmar Warehouse this week. She read "Train" by Helen Mackay (@lawyercatrin, Ought to be Clowns).

Owen Sheers has written about Andrea's research for Resistance, in which she plays Sarah (Telegraph).
Andrea will play Princess Betsy in the film adaptation of Anna Karenina directed by Joe Wright. Tom Stoppard wrote the script (Daily Mail).

Another Stoppard script - Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall will star in a BBC/HBO adaptation of Parade's End by Ford Madox Ford (Deadline Hollywood).
