The photo gallery has been updated with 12 HQ stills of one of Emilia’s older theatre projects:
Les Liaisons dangereuses (The Dangerous Liaisons) is a French epistolary novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, first published in four volumes by Durand Neveu from March 23, 1782.
It is the story of the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, two rivals (and ex-lovers) who use seduction as a weapon to humiliate and degrade others, all the while enjoying their cruel games and boasting about their manipulative talents. It has been claimed to depict the decadence of the French aristocracy shortly before the French Revolution, thereby exposing the perversions of the so-called Ancien Régime. However, it has also been described as an amoral story.

RLSB, London’s leading charity for blind young people, launched the UK’s first Blindfold Run challenge today at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which has been supported by Silent Witness star, Emilia Fox.
This unique event works with runners working in pairs. One person is blindfolded and tethered to a sighted runner, who narrates the twists and turns of the track to make it round the 5k or 10k course. The event will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 2nd November 2014.
Emilia Fox, star of BBC Crime Drama Silent Witness, who is supporting the event said,
“This is sure to be a one of a kind charity run. Running without being able to see and relying purely on your other senses will be a unique experience for many people and is for such a great cause. I hope as many people as possible support this event.”
RLSB’s Chief Executive Dr. Tom Pey said;
“If you ask a totally blind person what they see they will tell you that they see nothing. This concept of nothingness is difficult to grasp if never experienced. Our Blindfold Run is designed to bring you to understand it. And it’s a great chance to make a special bond with your sighted guide. Literally, your safety is in their hands and you have to trust them implicitly. All of this and you are raising money for vision impaired young people – so that they can live a life without limits. So, get your slippers off and your trainers on. The run of your life is about to start!”
Money raised from the Blindfold Run will go to life-changing support services for blind children, young people and their families. Runners can sign up at rlsb.org.uk/blindfold. To celebrate the launch participants can get 25% off the entry fee using the promo code LAUNCH at the checkout.

Faiers, who is pregnant, is calling on mothers-to-be to bare their bumps and share photos of themselves doing so on social media.

The actor Peter Capaldi has helped to launch Barnardo’s Story Time campaign, set up to highlight the importance of communication to a child’s early development and raise funds for the charity.

Below I’ve added two clips from the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (4th June) which aired as a special program on BBC 2 yesterday. One is the performance of Kaiser Chiefs’ song ‘Meanwhile in heaven’ and a short edited version of it.
As my friend Rich, who donated the videos to us, said so truthfully: you have to play ‘Where’s Waldo?’ to spot Emilia (at the back). Enjoy
