Role: Claire, who falls in lust with a another younger woman.
What was said: “Anna Chancellor’s Claire is also a hilarious mix of straight-backed social refinement and predatory lust” [x]
What Anna Chancellor has said: Her favourite line is: "I’d informed you at the time that you maintained an overdank and fetid atmosphere in your solarium, it dropped on my reticule and now it’s rotted your bible." [x]
