Lily James is brilliant as ‘Elizabeth Layton’, Winston Churchill’s (Gary Oldman) secretary and right hand woman, in “Darkest Hour”.
I recently caught up with Lily to talk about:
- the responsibility she felt playing a character based on someone who existed.
- working with Gary Oldman but not really ever meeting Gary
- how she managed to get auditions immediately after leaving drama school
- the moment she was finally felt she was able to call herself an actress.
“Darkest Hour” is in Irish cinemas on Friday 12th January, 2018.
