'It was her way of coping and showed just how unhappy she must have been. Anne was a victim as a child, because she was an orphan and got badly treated, she was a victim. 'I was able to return for that, which was incredible; and for Christmas Jo and the family all came for a visit. James doesn’t recall reading Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel series as a child. In the adaptation, that tough start is part explanation for Anne’s fanciful, romantic imagination. 'I don't suffer depression because I don't worry about what's past. ', Geraldine James (pictured centre as Marilla with Amybeth McNulty as Anne and RH Thompson as Matthew in Anne With An E), 68, gave an insight in to her experience of the acting industry. Anne With An E season two arrives on Netflix on Friday the 6thof July. But the centre of the story remains the unlikely but charming trio of talkative Anne, stern Marilla and taciturn Matthew. “I said ‘Oh no, she’s such a stuck-up—. “Marilla had never heard that word. 'TV productions had the freedom then to use unknown actors, to take risks,' says Geraldine.

'It doesn't really happen any more so it's become very difficult for young actors to be given the chances I had.'.

More recently, in 2016 James officially joined the Star Wars universe with a brief role in Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One. She’d played Portia in the hugely popular London production, which had amassed advance ticket sales of well over a million pounds, and was continuing the role in New York. Showrunner Moira Walley-Beckett made changes to the story. 'It turns out the baby was Davina McCall!' She's anxious about what to feed the 25 or so actors who'll descend on her Sussex home for her Jewel In The Crown reunion party at the end of this month. I’m laughing!

', The subzero temperatures in Canada didn't help either. Speaking to the New York Times in 1990, Geraldine James praised the wonderful parts Shakespeare wrote for women. “I’d love to do more Shakespeare but Shakespeare didn’t write parts for older women.
