I know that face from somewhere. You might recognize actor Vanessa Kirby if you were a fan of BBC2’s The Hour – although she did die rather early on in the series. She was the doomed debutante Ruth Elms whose death Ben Whishaw’s character Freddie Lyon had to avenge.

Oh dear, surely it’s not good to be killed off so early on in your career? Au contraire, she’s been forging ahead recently.

I see. Life after death. So what’s she been up to? What hasn’t she been up to! It’s been nonstop on planet Kirby this year: theatre roles up and down the country, including The Acid Test at the Royal Court, and a BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations, which we’ll see just after Christmas: she’s playing Estella, Miss Havisham’s adopted daughter.

But no films… Just be patient – to cap it all she’s about to wrap-up filming her first lead role on Ridley Scott’s adaptation of Kate Mosse’s bestselling novel Labyrinth, opposite John Hurt, which is out in 2012.

She says: “I’ve only had the odd day off in the past two years, but I don’t mind – acting is the funnest thing in the whole world ever.”

We say: Take a long hard look at this face and remember it. You’ll be seeing quite a bit of our Nessy come the new year.
