Keeley Hawes talks “The Casual Vacancy” in new interview!
Keeley Hawes (who also has a role in the eighth series of Doctor Who) will play Samantha Mollison, a bored housewife who has become disenchanted with her life and with her husband’s political ambitions. It seems Hawes had not read the book before she auditioned but soon became a fan:
I read the book, The Casual Vacancy, on holiday, and I absolutely loved it… you read a book, and you always imagine the people you know as the characters. Well, I do. There’s always someone you have in your imagination, and it was amazing to read it with me in it!
I read the script, and then I read the book because I knew I’d have time when I was away, and it was so exciting to be reading a book and be reading about me and put myself into that situation!
