The Invisible Woman: Empire Meets Ralph Fiennes
On Dickens, Scalextric, Anthony Minghella and Maid In Manhattan fans

submit to reddit

Director, star and pin-up boy of the Victorian beard renaissance currently aflame in a tiny corner of Dalston, Ralph Fiennes had his work cut out on The Invisible Woman. The story of Charles Dickens and his secret affair with young actress Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones), it's his second double-hander in a row, following Coriolanus, and sees him in top form on both sides of the camera. But did we ask him about crafting Dickens' porcelain love affair for the big screen? Well, a bit. Mostly, though, it was Victorian toys, Scalextric and his memories of The English Patient that were on Empire's agenda.
