Glue should scare the shit out of anyone who thinks they might move there [to the countryside] for a quiet life. British drama often focuses on urban environments and the countryside tends to get neglected. The modern countryside is complex, exciting and rarely portrayed the way we’re going to show it.”

If you MISSED the 1st Series of Peaky Blinders, you can watch it AGAIN on repeat from Monday 15th September 2014 on BBC2 @ 11.20pm.

The 2nd Series airs this Auntumn 2014, so catch Series 1 if you missed it first time, just before the new series starts. It’s about a gang who terrorised the streets of Birmingham at the beginning of the 20th century. It’s beautifully shot and worth the watch!

How would you describe Glue?
It’s about a group of friends from the countryside. One of these friends dies and their world falls apart, so it’s about what happens after that, the consequences of it.

Who do you play?
I play Tina, she’s a female jockey. She’s very loving, a very strong character. She doesn’t take any rubbish from anyone – but she’s got a heart of gold.

Who does she interact with?
She interacts with everyone – she has a connection with everyone in the group in some way. She’s very close friends with Annie (Jessie Cave) and goes out with Rob (Jordan Stephens).

What did you think of the script when you first read it?
I thought it was amazing. The storyline is brilliant, the writing is just so incredible. We were rehearsing one day and the director asked us to do this one scene in one way – really quiet – and then to do the same scene in different way – really angry. And it just really worked no matter how you did it, which is the sign of great writing for an actor. I’m a huge fan of Jack [writer Jack Thorne], I loved This is England.

How much does the countryside play a part in it?
I think it has quite a significant role because it’s basically very isolated there – in this village everyone knows everyone’s business, it’s quite close knit, everyone knows everyone. So it plays a big part in the story.

Can you liken it to anything else?
I honestly can’t liken it to anything else. When I was first approached for it I thought ‘oh it’s just going to be a twist on Skins’, but it feels so different from anything we’ve seen before. We managed to see an early version of it and the room just went silent – it was just so good! I can’t compare it to anything else.

Are you a fan of crime drama?
I did Line of Duty [playing Carly Kirk in the BBC Two drama] – so I do love them if they’re done well. It’s a great genre.

TV: GLUE

New series drama, Skins meets Broadchurch. From the creator behind This Is England ‘86 and ‘88, Skins and The Fades – a murder mystery set in the countryside.

Adolescents in the country are like adolescents anywhere in Britain, only perhaps more bored. And this is reflected in the story of a group of friends who begin the drama jumping into a grain silo and getting wrecked on drink and puff and “white”, only to find that the next morning they have to contend with the death of their friend, Cal, as well as their thumping hangovers. There will be online mini-episodes at the online site, set before the drama begins.

Airs on Monday 15th September 2014 on E4 @ 10pm.
