When Emma Corrin shared hopes of starring in a “gritty” Scottish film with “an outrageous accent” it seemed she simply wanted a change from playing the upper crust young Princess Diana in The Crown.
However, now the Netflix star has been accused by a fellow actress of “working class tourism”.
Jessica Barden, best known as the rebellious teenager Alyssa in the Channel 4 comedy drama The End of the F***ing World, said “posh actors” should not stray into depicting characters from poorer backgrounds like her own.
Mustn’t do dress down, of course. That would be a gross violation of all that it means to be an actor.
Gonna be difficult doing all those historical romances as there are very few actual Dukes and Viscounts in the profession.
