The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society is released this week, and to celebrate Mike Newell’s latest endeavour we sat down with one of its stars Jessica Brown Findlay.
We asked the talented actress what it was like to collaborate with such a revered filmmaker, while on the same subject we discuss the joy in sharing the screen with actors such as Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton. Findlay also speaks about the accidental Downton Abbey reuinion on set, what her favourite pie is – and what it means to actors when their film is shown on Netflix, which is where this project will be released in the United States (despite getting a theatrical release in the UK).
Watch the full interview below…
In 1946 a London-based writer begins exchanging letters with residents on the island of Guernsey, which was German-occupied during WWII. Feeling compelled to visit the island, she starts to get a picture of what it was like during the occupation.
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society is released on April 20th.
