anna chancellor plays camilla diamond

Anna Chancellor is one of this country’s most recognisable character actresses. She has appeared extensively on the big screen, with her most high-profile role to date being that of Duckface in ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’. Anna’s television credits include ‘Spooks’, ‘Tipping the Velvet’, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, ‘Rebus’, ‘Kavanagh QC’, ‘Inspector Morse’ and ‘Poirot’. Of her role as ice queen Camilla, Anna says: “When I was originally sent the script, I really wanted to play Hilary, the sexed-up blonde, but the producers greeted me with a blank look so I auditioned for the part of Camilla. Now I’m delighted I got it because I’ve really loved playing the role. “My character is terrifying. She’s got no conscience at all. She’s basically a posh female Ray Winstone!”

ralph ineson plays jeremy hazeldine

Ralph plays hapless police chief Jeremy Hazeldine. Ralph is instantly recognisable to most people for his role as odious sales rep Finchy in ‘The Office’. Says Ralph: “It got quite raunchy in the first series. In one episode they ended up at a swingers’ evening taking Viagra… that scene was very interesting to film! “This series has proved no less raunchy as Camilla drugs Jeremy and then stages a sexual scene in her Jacuzzi. That was only the first day!” Ralph has just finished making ‘Shoot on Sight’, a film about the July 7th London bombings. His other film credits include ‘From Hell’ with Johnny Depp and ‘First Knight’ with Richard Gere.

felicity montagu plays barbara du prez

Felicity plays upstanding pillar of the community Barbara Du Prez, who will stop at nothing to defend her village from the power-crazed Camilla. A familiar face to comedy fans, Felicity is best known for playing the put-upon personal assistant Lynn in ‘I’m Alan Partridge’. She has also appeared in ‘Nighty Night’. Felicity remarks: “Barbara is such a wonderful character to play. She is someone with supreme confidence in herself. I like her enormously and I’ve met people like that so I understand that type of woman. They know who and what they are and they’re a little scary. They are also polite and sticklers for manners, but can turn at the drop of a powder compact!”
