About me:

Currently filming Shadow and Bone for Netflix.

"Gillian Anderson, Maxine Peake and Rachel Weisz are among those who have shredded their nerves as the superannuated Southern belle Blanche DuBois. Yet in her lower-key way, the relatively unknown Kelly Gough stands comparison to all of them. She gives a performance as psychologically true as it is theatrically compelling...I’ve seen more flamboyant Blanches, but I’m not sure I’ve seen better."

Dominic Maxwell, The Times.
