I filmed my first ever lesbian kiss this year.
I was playing Portia, the novelist lover of Alex Kingston’s character Blanche Mottershead in Upstairs Downstairs. In the story, we had been lovers before and I came back into her life. The kiss wasn’t in the script, but Alex and I discussed it and decided we were going to go for it. It was a full-on kiss, because there was no point being half-hearted about it, and it worked in terms of taking the scene to another level.Changing your hair colour is one of the quickest ways of creating a new adventure for yourself.I am a natural, albeit highlighted, blonde, but to play Portia I had to become a redhead and I’m loving it. It takes you out of your comfort zone because once you change your hair, you need to change your make-up and rethink your clothes. But the best bit is the reaction you get from people who might have a preconception of you. I’m loving walking into meetings and seeing people doing a double-take. It demonstrates that I am versatile and stops them pigeonholing me. As an actress, that is very useful.
I have taken the site back, I missed it, thank you Gertie.
I will updating the site with news, images and a new design soon, and as you can see I gave the site a new name.
Apologies for the late posting! It was such a shame Emilia’s scene in Merlin 4×07 was cut! Here are two stills of her. They’re in the deleted scenes, so I’ll get that video up soon! :]
Sorry, recently I’ve been lax with updates. I appear to have abandoned my sites, not just this one. I haven’t updated my favourite ones for a while, Captivating Holly Valance, Le Fay Keep and Enchanting Katie Mcgrath! I’ve let myself down! Anyway, I’m glad lots of people like the new site! I hope lots of new people visit, and I’ll update with the latest news again very soon!
Images from Emilia attending HBO’S MILDRED PIERCE DVD LAUNCH with Freddie Fox, her brother, will be added to the gallery! She looked wonderful, so watch out for those!
Today is remembering sunday, I hope we can remember those in the wars.
And last but not least, the final update of the day – I promise! The Morguase “Merlin” promoshoots which, although Emilia’s face as Morguase ain’t quite as normal as usual, she looks stunning! Gonna re watch that episode and see if I was wrong about the hole ‘Morguase returns!’ thing! Hope I was .
About a year ago Emilia appeared on Bookaboo, I’ve embedded her reading a story so you can watch it below!
