Since leaving drama school in 1995 Victoria Hamilton has had the career that most actors dream of. Gaining both her first TV and stage roles soon after graduating, she was hailed as the “Judi Dench of her generation”. She is now a multi award winning actress and has been cast alongside some of the great names in theatre. After being in films such as Mansfield Park and Persuasion, Victoria has returned to the stage in the role of Viola for the Donmar Warehouse’s West End production of Twelfth Night opposite Derek Jacobi.
She's also playing Ruby Pratt in Lark Rise to Candleford this weekend. She joins Jenni to talk about her career and her latest role.
