Here's a detailed round-up of all the latest news for ZoŽ's fans.

Donít miss ZoŽ in The Birthday Party!

Time is running out to watch the 60th anniversary West End revival of Pinterís The Birthday Party. ZoŽís performance as seaside landlady Meg, who struggles to see her visitorsí dark intentions, has been widely praised.

As well as receiving stunning reviews, ZoŽ, the rest of the cast and the production itself are wowing audiences. Below is just a small selection of recent comments from theatregoers.

Tickets are available from ATG for the classic play, which is running for a strictly limited season at London's Harold Pinter Theatre. The final matinee and evening performance will be on 14 April.

Photoshoot with Andrew Ogilvy

The Harold Pinter Theatre was also the setting for a recent photoshoot with ZoŽ and the talented photographer Andrew Ogilvy.

They clearly had a great time working together! You can view the portrait of ZoŽ on Ogilvyís website Ė I like the directness of her gaze.

Britannia set to return in 2019

Have you recovered yet after Britanniaís shocking finale? While you catch your breath, let me fill you in on an exciting announcement about the historical epic. Sky has commissioned a second series, which will begin filming this spring. The new episodes are due to air next year.

Hopefully this means that weíll find out how ZoŽís formidable Queen Antedia fares following the catastrophic events in the first series.

If youíd like to relive the drama, youíll be pleased to hear that Britannia series one will be released on Region 2 DVD and Region B/2 Blu-ray on 26 March.

Below, fanpage Best of Britannia has helpfully summarised other ways you can watch the show around the world.

Annabel Scholey chats about ZoŽ, her Ďamazingí co-star

Another Britannia cast member, Annabel Scholey, has emphasised how supportive ZoŽ is as part of an interview published in The Mail on Sunday.

In particular, Scholey recalls the first time they worked together. ĎWhen I did [the 2013 West End production of] Passion Play with ZoŽ she requested that I share her dressing room because she likes to have company. What amazed me was how sheíd often ask what I thought about the way sheíd changed one little nuance or action. It made me feel so much better, because I realised I was with someone who, even at her level, still doubted herself and questioned everything.í

She describes ZoŽ as one of her Ďamazing friendsí in the acting industry who she can always turn to for advice and support.

Wonderful readings to celebrate World Poetry Day

Thanks to World Poetry Day (21 March), the power of creative writing has been in the spotlight this week. So why not take the opportunity to remind yourself of two brilliant readings ZoŽ has given of two brilliant poems?

The video, produced by literature resource Connell Guides, features ĎThis Be the Verseí by Philip Larkin and ĎNot Waving But Drowningí by Stevie Smith (who, of course, ZoŽ played on stage to great acclaim in 2014 and 2015).
