Ralph Fiennes is one hugely talented individual, who has not only starred in some great movies in his time but also directed some. Next up for Ralph is the movie The Invisible Woman and the star has revealed what drew him to the movie.
Fiennes was chatting to the guys over at Collider, when he explained to them, "I didn’t expect to be doing a Victorian piece about Charles Dickens, but it just came at me. I fell in love with Ellen Ternan, in a way. Not in the obvious sense, but emotionally."
He added, "She moved me. And then, Dickens, in himself, was a complicated, fascinating man. It’s a fascinating period. We have this sense of starchy Victorians. They have their rules, which is the starchy bit, but underneath, all this stuff was going on."
As well as starring in the movie, Ralph Fiennes also directs The Invisible Woman, based on the screenplay that was developed by Abi Morgan from the Claire Tomalin book. The Invisible Woman also stars Felicity Jones, Tom Burke and Kristin Scott Thomas and will open on limited release on December 25 in the US, before then hitting the UK on February 7, 2014.
