I’m not sure if I like Tuppence Middleton as an actor. She’s been in a bunch of things, and she plays a minor character in the new Downton Abbey movie that opens in the U.S. on May 20, 2022. So I figure that’s enough reason for a WCW. Maybe you can decide yay or nay on her work?
Grace in First Light (2010)
Hard to find much about this one except it’s set in the 1940s & I think Middleton plays Sam Heughan‘s love interest.
Tiger in Sinbad (2012)
Not quite historical? Pirate-y? More fantasy, I guess? IDK! Just throwing it in here for kicks.
Gabrielle in Spies of Warsaw (2013)
A small part in this WWII thriller.
Iris Carr in The Lady Vanishes (2013)
OK, now things get interesting. Tuppence Middleton takes the lead in a 1930s murder-mystery. Not bad if you like that sort of thing.
Just a small role as one of the ladies sharing a table at the pub when the main characters go out for a date.
Helene Bezukhova / Helene Kuragina in War & Peace (2016)
We shouldn’t hold the ridiculous costumes against the actor … but …
There’s that head necklace.
And waaaay too much sternum. Even setting aside the costumes, this version of War & Peace was pretty wacky all around
Amelia Havisham in Dickensian (2016)
As Miss Havisham pre-altar-jilting, Middleton does a decent job here.
The series itself was a bit muddled, but I’ll give her credit for keeping her head above water.
Another small role, here as Thomas Edison’s wife. Ho hum.
She gets a meet-cute with Tom Branson that portends great things.
Then spends most of the movie as a “lady’s maid.”
Claire Franklin in The Defeated (2020)
A short crime series set in WWII-era Berlin. She really nails that vintage noir look.
Sara Mankiewicz in Mank (2020)
A more substantial ‘wife of famous guy’ role here, as Herman Mankiewicz’s wife. The film shows her influence on Mank as he wrote the screenplay for Citizen Kane.
Lucy Smith in Downton Abbey: A New Era (2022)
The previews show Lucy & Tom getting married, yay!
And they become part of the big, happy, rich, aristocratic family, ‘natch.
Do you like Tuppence Middleton in frock flicks? Will you be watching the new Downton Abbey movie?
