Romola attended the BAFTAs yesterday looking lovely in her Roksanda top and skirt with Nicholas Kirkwood x Roksanda heels. Click here to see a couple of pictures! I will hopefully be adding more soon!
Actor Romola Garai brought a much needed pop of colour to the awards in a Roksanda Illncic top and skirt. The 1970s influence is clear once again here and the upturned cuffs on that shirt are a little bit of heaven. (Source)
I have fantastic news to report today! According to Broadway World, Romola will play Isabella in Shakespeare’s MEASURE FOR MEASURE at the Young Vic from October 2, 2015 under the direction of Joe Hill-Gibbins.
Shakespeare’s MEASURE FOR MEASURE centers on Claudio, Isabella’s brother, who is arrested by the conservative leader of Vienna for getting his lover pregnant out of wedlock. Isabella is about to enter a nunnery when she hears of her brother’s arrest and comes to his aid.
Romola and Joe Hill-Gibbins previously worked together on Penelope Skinner’s play The Village Bike at the Royal Court.
Just a quick note to let you know that the release of Suffragette has been pushed back to September 11 in the UK.
A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.
Indiewire has released a brand new interview with Romola in which she talks about her current play Indian Ink, sexism, whether she sees any themes in her work, her top five favorite female characters and feeling like a commodity amongst other things. It really is an interesting read, so be sure to check it out by clicking here!
9 promotional stills for Romola’s play Indian Ink (which opens today in New York!) have been added to the gallery. Performances will continue through Nov. 30.
Set on two different continents and in two different eras, Indian Ink follows free-spirited English poet Flora Crewe on her travels through India in the 1930s, where her intricate relationship with an Indian artist unfurls against the backdrop of a country seeking its independence. Fifty years later, in 1980s England, her younger sister Eleanor tries to preserve the legacy of Flora’s controversial career.
