Keeley Hawes had standout roles in Wives & Daughters, Tipping the Velvet, and Upstairs Downstairs, but then was in a lot of modern stuff (like voicing Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider video games). I was thrilled to see her pop back up in The Durrells in Corfu, now I just have to go back and watch more than the first episode! Please, more Keeley, costume movie makers?
She started off in this adaptation of a Wilkie Collins novel: The Moonstone (1997).
Played one of two leads in the snoozeriffic adaptation of Dickens’ Our Mutual Friend (1998).
Played Diana Dors in the bio-TV movie The Blonde Bombshell (1999).
Visited the 1890s in The Murdoch Mysteries: Poor Tom Is Cold (2004).
Went to the 1930s for Agatha Christie’s Marple: A Murder Is Announced (2005).
The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box (2013): I think this could be terrible but appears to have interesting bustle costumes.
Went back to the 1930s for the remake of Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes (2013).
Okay so she played Queen Elizabeth in both Richard III and Henry IV Part 2 of The Hollow Crown (2016), but I admit to not being a huge Shakespeare fan.
Which is your favorite of Keeley Hawses’s historical roles?
