May 21 – A Streetcar Named Desire
Gillian Anderson (The X-Files, Sex Education) stars as Blanche DuBois in this Young Vic and Joshua Andrews co-production of the Tennessee Williams classic.
As Blanche’s fragile world crumbles, she turns to her sister Stella (Vanessa Kirby) for solace – but her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski (Ben Foster).
Finally after a long time without news from Mr Jones the first trailer, production stills and poster have been released. This tells the story of a Welsh journalist who breaks the story of famine in the Soviet Union in the 1930s. Vanessa plays Ada Brooks plays his colleague, which is a fictional character in this drama.
As part of a buzzfeed interview Vanessa not only tells us a bit more about her day on The Crown but she was also video interviewed for Hobbs and Shaw!
The Crown star Vanessa Kirby has revealed the terror she felt when she first had an inkling that Helena Bonham Carter might take over for her as Princess Margaret in the show’s third and fourth seasons.
Kirby told BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM that she first became suspicious that Bonham Carter was interested in the role when she turned up at a private charity screening Kirby was hosting of two episodes of the Netflix drama’s second season in November 2017.
“In my head I was like, Maybe she’s turned up because she’s thinking about playing Margaret,” said Kirby. “And then I was so nervous throughout the whole screening because I was like, What if she watches it and goes, ‘Oh god. I don’t want to do that! I don’t want to do what that actress did.’ And then when she did I just felt so honored. She is actually royalty, so that was a really beautiful moment.”
