Here is a great interview Jess did with Grazia Magazine. Jess puts the rumours about when she got engaged to rest, her honeymoon destination and more
‘I’M FINALLY GOING ON MY HONEYMOON’
After starring in Call The Midwife, Jessica Raine, 32, had a busy 2015, with roles in Wolf Hall, Agatha Christie’s Partners In Crime and thriller Fortitude. Next she stars in period drama Jericho.
Was it hard to switch off after a day playing Jules in Fortitude?
Jessica. Yes, the character was really emotionally disturbed; it wasn’t that fun a part to play! I also chose the naffest coat because I thought she wasn’t that fashion conscious, and then everyone else looked really cool.
What was David Walliams like to work with on Partners In Crime?
Jessica: He wasn’t how I expected. He is probably one of the hardest working men in this industry. He has an empire!
What’s been your favourite moment of the year?
Jessica: Drinking whisky on a hill while filming Jericho was a lot of fun. And getting married, I have to mention that.
Is it true you had a two-week engagement?
Jessica: No, the press just knew about it late. Tom [Goodman-Hill] and I were engaged since January. I went back to work the day after the wedding, so we’re finally having our honeymoon just before Christmas. I’ll do my Christmas shopping in Mexico.
