Polly Walker exudes sensual glamour in virtually every role she’s in. And fortunately for us, she’s in quite a few historical costume flicks to feast our eyes upon!
Peril at End House (1990)
Note to self: I need to do an overview of the David Suchet “Poirot” series because the costumes are almost always stunning. Like this beach pajama set in Peril at End House.
Lorna Doone (1990)
Baby Clive Owen! Baby Polly Walker! I’m totally down.
Journey of Honor (1991)
Wait a minute … Isn’t that the same dress as in Lorna Doone?
Polly Walker owning the 1920s.
The Trial (1993)
I honestly don’t know much about this film, but it looks interesting. Apart from the fact that there’s hardly any good photos of Polly Walker in it available on the Internet.
A Frock Flick Favorite! The costumes are beyond spectacular and Polly Walker is, of course, stunning as the King’s mistress, Cecelia.
I had completely forgotten that Polly Walker played sweet-natured Jane Fairfax in the 1996 film adaptation of Emma. I also completely forgot that Ewan McGregor was in it, too. Man, I need to get my memory checked.
Robinson Crusoe (1997)
Not the best adaptation of Daniel Defoe’s novel, tbh.
The Gambler (1997)
Polly Walker as the capricious and devious Polina.
Too little of Polly Walker as Mrs. Charmond in this adaptation of the Thomas Hardy novel.
Talk of Angels (1998)
Young Irishwoman Mary falls in love with her Spanish employer and embarks on a torrid affair set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War. Like you do.
The Mayor of Casterbridge (2003)
I hadn’t heard of this before writing this post, but now I want to see it if for the only reason that the costumes look excellent.
Atia of the Julii is my everything.
Clash of the Titans (2010)
Ok, so it’s more fantasy than historical, but I love how luscious Polly Walker looks as Cassiopeia.
Polly Walker as Delphine Day, Rose Selfridge’s fabulous best friend in Series 2.
