Florence leaves the ‘wedmin’ to talk about playing an on-stage beauty and an on-screen psychopath

Florence Cady is a rising star of stage and screen. She was one of the leads in the successful UK tour of Ruth Rendell’s Gallowglass, and stars in a new horror feature, Crucible of the Vampire.

Female action heroes and the spirit of Emma Peel

Female action heroes are now the norm, it has been suggested (by none other than Felicity Jones of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). Maybe or maybe not, but they’re certainly not new. Those of a certain age won’t forget the ass-kicking Emma Peel of The Avengers, and there have been many following in her … Continue reading
