Jane Eyre part II

Jane Eyre part II

I’m actually playing Martha – the cook and wife of John who has come over with Rochester from Jamaica – he’s played by Ewart James Walters. I thought I recognised him at rehearsal but couldn’t work out how – turns out I saw him in Master Harold and The Boys at the Bristol Old Vic, which was directed by my lovely mate Joyce Branagh. He’s a wonderful actor and I’m really looking forward to working with him. We had a lovely rehearsal with Cary Fukunaga, Mia Wasikowska and a few other cast members at Pinewood on Monday.

We improvised some kitchen based scenes and I think I’m going to love working on this – Cary is wonderful – so is Mia – it’s all so exciting!

Only downside was – today I had to measure myself for the wardrobe department….I used to go in and out in all the right places but all three main numbers are starting to merge together…..I’m tubular!
