Stephen Rea] is someone who I’ve hugely admired and our paths have crossed many times. But we’ve never actually worked together until now. So that was fantastic. I’m an enormous fan of his. The casting is wonderful in this series. Lydia Leonard, who plays one of Vivien’s daughters Natalie, has played my daughter before, on stage at the National Theatre.” The Character: Claudie Blakley plays the oldest of Vivien’s three children, Helen, who is desperately trying to be as put together as she’d like everyone else to believe, and is trying to hold onto a career, marriage and family that are all shaken up at once. mp_sf_list_1_description:The Character: Francesca Annis, another Cranford star among the cast, plays Vivien, the widowed mother and matriarch of her family. When she introduces her three adult children to her new boyfriend, and shares with them her intentions of selling the family home and moving on with her life, they don’t exactly take kindly to…well, any of it. We filmed in the summer for a drama that is set in the summer. On many occasions you film dramas that are meant to be set in the summer and it’s actually winter when you are shooting. You are on a beach with shorts on and it is freezing. That’s when you really have to give it some serious acting.”

mp_sf_list_3_description:The Character: Claudie Blakley plays the oldest of Vivien's three children, Helen, who is desperately trying to be as put together as she'd like everyone else to believe, and is trying to hold onto a career, marriage and family that are all shaken up at once. Cast Connections: Flesh and Blood was an exciting one for Annis, one with “lots of twists and turns…that made me laugh. And a couple of things that made me gasp.“ It helped, too, to have co-stars and peers she’d worked with or encountered before, and was happy to reunite with. strong>Where You've Seen Her Before: Blakley is known for her roles in the 2005 film adaptation of Pride & Prejudice as Charlotte Lucas; as Mabel Nesbitt in Gosford Park; and for her other MASTERPIECE roles, such as Agatha Redmond in Season 2 of Grantchester, Cynthia Lennon in Lennon Naked, and in Lark Rise to Candleford, Cranford and more.The entire project came together, Tovey said, thanks to a combined effort from the cast and director Louise Hopper. “The best thing about this job is we are all very instinctive actors and in tune with each other," he said. "We were given the freedom to talk over each other... Louise Hooper, who is an awesome director, wanted it to be real. So we were able to squabble, improvise a little and speak over each other. As people do in a family. It felt great to do those scenes."The Locations: Tovey's love for the project didn't end there. The filming locations were another one of his favorite parts of filming the series. “We filmed a lot of the drama in Eastbourne," he explained. "The family home is on the beach, so you can walk up from the sea into the house. It was an amazing location. Eastbourne is lovely. I had no idea. Really beautiful. strong>His Cast Mates: Playing a family unit, on the other hand, came much more easily, according to Tovey, especially with his "screen sisters" Claudie Blakley and Lydia Leonard, who he calls "friends for life." He even dubbed the trio "The Three Sisters."

In fact, Staunton and co-star Annis being involved were part of the reason that Rea was attracted to the project. “Francesca Annis and Imelda Staunton were already attached to this. Actors who I am very impressed by, fond of and know,” he explained. “The character of Mark was interesting and it had an intriguing surface of a functional family that turns out to be completely non-functional. I have a personal belief that most families aren’t functional. So, I’m quite happy to contribute to that propaganda.”verifyErrors }}{{ message }}{{ /verifyErrors }}{{ Where You’ve Seen Her Before: Blakley is known for her roles in the 2005 film adaptation of Pride & Prejudice as Charlotte Lucas; as Mabel Nesbitt in Gosford Park; and for her other MASTERPIECE roles, such as Agatha Redmond in Season 2 of Grantchester, Cynthia Lennon in Lennon Naked, and in Lark Rise to Candleford, Cranford and more.

The Story: For Staunton, the series’ storyline of a strong attachment to one’s childhood home was one she could personally relate to. “I was raised above a hair salon in north London,” she explained. “I regarded that as home. We moved when I was 10 or 11. And for most of my adult life, probably until I had my own house and family, I dreamt about that house all of the time. Because I wanted to be there.” mp_sf_list: a:6:{i:0;s:15:"mp_sf_list_item";i:1;s:15:"mp_sf_list_item";i:2;s:15:"mp_sf_list_item";i:3;s:15:"mp_sf_list_item";i:4;s:15:"mp_sf_list_item";i:5;s:15:"mp_sf_list_item";}
