On Rosmersholm’s red carpet

Here’s Zoë and her husband, Gawn Grainger, on the red carpet today at Rosmersholm’s opening night in London’s West End. Ibsen’s masterpiece, newly adapted by Duncan Macmillan, is being staged at the Duke of York’s Theatre and stars Tom Burke, Hayley Atwell and Giles Terera.

Rosmersholm’s director is Ian Rickson, who you may remember worked with Zoë on the hugely successful 2018 West End revival of Pinter’s The Birthday Party.

More praise for Zoë in Killing Eve

Entertainment website Culturess has responded enthusiastically to the introduction of quirky Helen Jacobson, ‘played by the always amazing Zoe Wanamaker’, in Killing Eve episode four, ‘Desperate Times’.

The article highlights the female-centric drama’s refreshing gender dynamics, remarking that ‘Helen has a male receptionist... and anger problems’, the latter being a trait often associated with male bosses on screen.

British newspaper The Telegraph is also keeping an eye on the BBC America show, remarking that ‘Desperate Times’ was ‘enlivened by a cameo from Zoë Wanamaker’.

Zoe has made a big impression on Decider, a TV and film resource: it calls her performance 'fantastic [and] immediately three-dimensional’.

Update on Zoë’s Cambridge talk

Zoe’s talk at the prestigious Cambridge Union, originally scheduled for 1 May, has been postponed.

I’ll let you know when I hear more.
