To celebrate the release of We Are Who We Are, the new acclaimed drama series which starts this week on BBC, we sat down with one of the show’s impressive ensemble to find out why so many people are already talking about it.

Faith Alabi is one of the UK’s brightest young actors, already featuring in Vera and Grantchester, and forms part of the show’s incredible array of talent, all brought together by Oscar-nominated director Luca Guadagnino (Suspiria, Call Me By Your Name), who directs the entire series.

Talking to us about her experiences on the show, Alabi tells us about working with the acclaimed director, working in the unique world of army base camps as well as her character Jenny, whose warmth and energy are severely tested during the series as she comes to terms with her pathway in life.
