Desperate Romantics - interviews with the actors
The BBC's new Pre-Raphaelite drama series (six episodes in total) will be shown in July on BBC 2, here are some links to interviews with some of the actors:
(he plays Dante Gabriel Rossetti)
(he plays John Everett Millais)
(he plays William Holman Hunt)
(he plays Fred Walters *)
* Fred Walters is a fictional character, a composite of several historical personalities, namely, Fred Stephens, Walter Deverell and William Michael Rossetti (saves money on BBC salaries :)).
UK television screening dates for 'Desperate Romantics' now announced - the first episode being broadcast on Tuesday 21 July 2009, 9pm-10pm on BBC2, and successive Tuesdays thereafter.

I watched a preview of the first episode last night - for anybody expecting an accurate account of the early adventures of the members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, this is not for you, but as a light-hearted fictional costume drama it is most entertaining. Rather a lot of gratuitous nudity, though - just about the only female character who keeps her clothes on in the first episode is Elizabeth Siddal's mother!
