The latest member of Nick Helm and Nathaniel Metcalfe’s Fan Club is Golden Globe awarded actress Samantha Morton.
The Fantastic Beasts’ star plays Harlots’ main character Margaret Wells who runs a popular middle-class brothel in Covent Garden.
“Talking about Harlots, I’m really really excited that it’s going to be on BBC2 at 9 pm on Wednesdays. I binged it the other night because I’d not seen it”.
Presenters Nick Helm and Nathaniel Metcalfe were quite surprised and Nick asked: “What do you mean? You’ve never seen it?
Samantha replied: “Oh I did a bit. Like, I went to a screening and I had a few too many red wines. I hate watching myself”
She also admitted that she “forgot all the storyline”.
“I was like, oh this is actually really good! I was really like, gripped by it”
During the show, the trio also spoke about Samantha losing her ticket for the Oscars, the representation of working-class people in the film industry, and the effects of COVID-19. You can listen to the full chat with Samantha Morton here.
