Jenna Coleman On Her Role In Victoria

BRITISH VOGUE – “I’m used to cold houses,” Jenna Coleman murmurs politely, batting away our offers of blankets and coats. It’s true: diamonds, show-stopping gowns and stately homes have been the norm for her ever since she took the title role in Victoria, the first series of which aired last year.
As we wander through Syon House, she twirls in the floor-length dresses with an easy grace that she learned from the show’s production designer, Michael Howells. (Top tip: bend at the hip when you’re walking up stairs to keep the skirt looking full.)
It’s only when the tiaras are packed away that she reveals her secret: hot-water bottles and wellies hidden under the fabric between takes.

In February, the first trailer for “Me Before You” was released, and on the 9th of that month, she attended the ‘So It Goes x Burberry: The Future of British Film’ event, an event which celebrated emerging British talent in film ahead of the 69th British Academy Film Awards. On February 12, she attended the Weinstein x Grey Goose Pre-BAFTA Party, where she reunited with “Me Before You” co-star, Emilia Clarke. Then, on February 13, Jenna attended the Louis Vuitton Pre-BAFTA Party.

In March, a first look at Jenna’s new drama series, “Victoria”, was released by ITV. May was a busy month for Jenna, who finished filming “Victoria”. The first “Me Before You” stills in which she appeared were released. On May 25, Jenna attended the European premiere of “Me Before You”, held in London. She looked gorgeous, wearing a beautiful Burberry gown. To complete this month, she attended the after party for the launch of the ‘Christian Dior Cruise 2017 Collection’ on May 31.
