The 56-year-old actress was photographed on Monday in Manchester on the set of “Nolly”, in which the actress takes on the features of Noele Gordon.

For 18 years, she played Meg Richardson in the British soap ‘Cossroads’ before being fired overnight, without warning or explanation. “All good things come to an end,” his boss had simply dropped when he left.

“What is extraordinary is that this woman was at the top. It was the most watched soap opera in the country and she was fired without any explanation and without any right of reply. In a post-#MeToo world, it’s fantastic to watch what she went through back then, how she was treated, and how acceptable it all was,” the producer said. miniseries, Nicola Shindler, to “Variety”.

“Noele Gordon was a fascinating, complex, brilliant and daring woman – about whom I knew nothing before reading Russell T. Davies’ screenplay,” Helena Bonham Carter told the American magazine. “I am thrilled to help tell his largely forgotten story. Russell’s screenplay is a brilliant piece of work and I hope I do him and Nolly justice. I can’t wait to get started,” she added.
