Sam Wanamaker Playhouse:
You can donate to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, and find out more about this recreation of an indoor Jacobean theatre, on the Shakespeare's Globe website. ZoŽ, who is Honorary President of the Globe, talks about the history and significance of the project in a video by the theatre. 

Current and upcoming projects:
  • Babs (BBC One, 7 May at 8pm): ZoŽ portrays radical theatre director Joan Littlewood in this special, one-off drama celebrating national treasure Barbara Windsor. Now available on R2 DVD.
  • Britannia (Sky 1 and Amazon Prime Video, 2017): ZoŽ stars as Antedia, a key figure in the Celtic resistance movement, in this major, ten-part historical drama series about the Roman invasion of ancient Britain.
  • Inside Number 9 (BBC Two, 2018): ZoŽ guest stars in an episode from this cult comedy-drama's fourth series.
  • Girlfriends (ITV, 2018): ZoŽ stars as Gail, part of a trio of childhood friends rocked by tragedy in this six-part drama series.
  • We can also look forward to a challenging piece for the theatre. More details about that as soon as they're available...

Filming underway for ITV's Girlfriends, starring ZoŽ

10 July 2017 00:10

Filming for ITV's Girlfriends, which stars ZoŽ, Miranda Richardson and Phyllis Logan as childhood friends facing tough challenges, began last Monday. The six-part drama series is being directed by its writer, Kay Mellor, and will be shot in and around Leeds and York over the summer. It's due to reach our TV screens in 2018.

In the words of ITV Media's synopsis, 'Girlfriends is a contemporary story of Linda, Sue and Gail as they struggle with the responsibilities and inevitable changes that come with being a modern woman of a certain age...' ZoŽ's character, Gail, certainly has a lot on her plate: she's helping her son, ex-prisoner Tom, get his life back on track while trying to save her marriage to Dave before their divorce is finalised.

Deadline reports that Girlfriends' supporting cast will include Matthew Lewis, who acted alongside ZoŽ in the first Harry Potter film. As accident-prone boy wizard Neville, he broke his wrist and brought out the normally formidable Madam Hooch's caring side!

Thank you, Jenny, for your help!
