What first attracted you to the role of Emma in Across the River?
Well the unique thing about Across The River is that it was completely improvised – I had done some improvisation before but nothing on this scale so that was definitely a draw. It is very rare you get this kind of opportunity and it was one I couldn’t let slip by. And I found I really loved working this way – it was a totally collaborative process from beginning to end and was a fabulously creative project to be involved in.
As a character I think Emma reminds me of many women today – she works very hard,
Sky is cooking up Delicious series 2! Dawn French and Emilia Fox will return...
Prepare for some more TV that's saucy in multiple ways! Sky 1 has officially ordered Delicious series 2, with creator Dan Sefton and stars Dawn French and Emilia Fox set to return for more food-adjacent romantic drama later this year.
The renewal news doesn't exactly come as a surprise. As CultBox tells us, series 1 of the show - which saw French's Gina and Fox's Sam battling for the affections of Iain Glen's sexy chef Leo - was Sky's most-viewed UK drama series last year. Of course the big cheeses behind the scenes want some seconds.
CultBox also has lots of quotes from people involved in the show, like this one from Dawn French...
"I am utterly delighted that there will be more of Delicious. It is that rare thing where everything from every department comes together well,
To celebrate the DVD & Digital HD release of Mum’S List on Monday 20th March, we are offering 3 lucky winners a chance to win a copy of the DVD!
One of the most memorable, beautiful and heart-warming stories of recent years; Mum’s List tells the real life story of Singe and Kate, a couple from North Somerset, whose lives were turned upside down when Kate was diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer. Over her last few months, she created her list: writing down her thoughts and memories to help the man she loved create the best life possible for him and their two sons, after she was gone.
Written and directed by Niall Johnson (White Noise; Keeping Mum), Mum’s List stars Rafe Spall, Emilia Fox and Elaine Cassidy. Published by Penguin Books in 2012 in the United Kingdom, the book Mum’s List entered the UK Amazon
“Delicious” will return for a second season, with stars Dawn French and Emilia Fox both set to return alongside writer Dan Sefton and director Clare Kilner. The drama, about food, love and infidelity, saw French in a rare dramatic role and proved a ratings winner for Sky when the first season of four episodes was broadcast at the end of December 2016 and through January this year.
Sky has also commissioned new action comedy “Bounty Hunters,” starring comedian and actor Jack Whitehall and Rosie Perez. Written by Whitehall and Freddy Syborn, who previously worked together on TV comedy “Bad Education” and its 2015 feature spin-off, “Bounty Hunters” will be directed by Will Sinclair. It is produced by Pippa Brown and executive produced by Ben Cavey for Cave Bear Productions.

With 2016 drawing to a close, and in one of my final posts of the year, I thought I would whack together one final list made up of ten films that really grabbed me during the year, some of which have made it into cinemas, but some which have not.
Not limited by any release spectrum, here are my top ten film experiences of 2016.
I saw this film at the Berlin Film
Only a Scrooge would snub Mum’s List, a heart-wringing, grief-stricken British weepy, adapted from the bestselling memoir by St John Greene. Rafe Spall does sterling work as a West Country widower, left to pick up the pieces. Emilia Fox is his late wife, Kate, who lives on as a guardian angel in the form of her texts and Post-it notes. Director Niall Johnson takes her scattered life lessons and makes them into a collage or possibly a soufflé. It’s warm to the touch, slightly soft in the middle.

Heartfelt and utterly committed performances from Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox are the bedrock of this sweet and desperately sad British film, taken from the autobiographical first novel by Somerset paramedic St John Greene, about the loss of his wife, Kate, to breast cancer, right after their young son had himself recovered from a tumour. An unthinkably cruel blow. It is a movie with big scenes and it did get under my guard: the sheer emotional candour from Spall and Fox carries the drama, whose action turns on the fact that St John has created a list of the texts his wife sent him in her final days, each intended to remind him
If there’s one film you see in cinemas this weekend, make sure it’s Mum’s List. It is a stunning film that is emotionally charged throughout, and features superb performances from its cast, particularly Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox, as well as a deep, heartbreaking screenplay by Niall Johnson, who also directs.
Adapted from the autobiographical, bestselling book of the same name by St John Greene (Singe), the British drama focusses on a couple, Singe (Rafe Spall) and Kate (Emilia Fox) from North Somerset in the south west of England, whose lives are turned upside down when Kate is diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer.

Based on the book of the same name, the film tells the true story of a mother leaving a legacy for her husband and sons when she dies of cancer.
Tissues at the ready for Mum’s List, the British weepie of the year. There won’t be a dry eye in the house although, for those reluctant to show their emotions in public, the over-loud soundtrack will disguise at least some of the snuffles.
It’s a cinematic memory box, about the real-life couple Singe (Rafe Spall) and wife Kate (Emilia Fox), teenage sweethearts who eventually married. They longed for a family and they had two boys, although a shadow clouded over their happiness when the older one was diagnosed with cancer. Even though he made a full recovery, it
A dying mother’s life lessons to the husband and sons she left behind. Based on the best-selling novel by St John (Singe) Greene, the film is the story of Singe and Kate, a couple from North Somerset, whose lives were turned upside down when Kate was diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer. Over her last few days, she created her list: writing her thoughts and memories down, to help the man she loved create the best life possible for their two sons, after she was gone.
Mum’s list is set for release on November 25th.
Those with unhappy memories of Dustin Hoffman’s Quartet, that sucrose vision of sweet old British thesps in a nursing home, might flinch at this. Brian Cox plays Sir Michael Gifford, an adorably grumpy old Shakespearian actor with the beginnings of Parkinson’s, who makes life hell for his family and nursing staff. But his new home care assistant is Dorottya (Coco König), a cheeky young Hungarian drama student who makes him laugh and reminds him of his younger self. A touching odd-couple friendship commences, which exasperates Sir Michael’s daughter, Sophia (Emilia Fox), and his secretary and former lover, Milly (Anna Chancellor), who are suspicious and maybe a little envious of this new relationship.
This film looks like it’s going
Hungary’s János Edelényi directs the story of a retired Shakesperean actor (Brian Cox) who hires a Hungarian carer (Coco König) with her own dreams of stardom.
The film, which premiered at Palm Springs and played last week at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, will have its London premiere on Aug 5 at the Regent Street Cinema in the presence of co-stars Emilia Fox, Anna Chancellor, Edelényi and König with Cox appearing via Skype from New York.
The film’s UK cinema run will include bookings at Manchester Home, Edinburgh Filmhouse and Glasgow Film Theatre.
“We’re convinced that the subject and Cox’s presence in an impressive cast will prove attractive to audiences. And the so-called silver screen patrons are an increasingly important part of the fabric of cinema-going although the film crosses generations,” said Ilona Morison
With Brian Cox, Hungarian director János Edelényi and newcomer Coco König in attendance, The Carer received its red carpet European premiere last night (20 June) as part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival. It has been snapped up by Edinburgh-based Cinéfile for distribution in the UK and Ireland.
The sell-out first screening at Filmhouse is followed by a second Cineworld show today (21 June), which already is close to capacity but has tickets still available.
The film will receive its London premiere on 5 August at the Regent Street Cinema, to be attended by the director and actors Emilia Fox, Anna Chancellor and Coco König. It will also be part of the line-up in the Chichester Film Festival later in the month. It goes on selected release from 5 August.
“We’re convinced that the subject and Cox’s presence in an impressive cast will prove attractive to audiences.
Directed by Garrick Hamm (The Man Who Married Himself), the film features an all star British cast lead by Charles Dance (‘Game Of Thrones’), Emilia Fox (‘Silent Witness’), Vincent Regan (Snow White And The Huntsman, 300) and Omid Djalili (Sex And The City 2). It follows Jonathan Hoyle (Charles Dance), who has been a war photographer in some of the world’s most troubled places, but it is in London, the night before a retrospective of his life’s work, that he is taken off the street by an armed man. Hoyle is about to learn that his photographs were not without consequences, and whether he
