LEVELLING with Ellie Kendrick

THE GAME OF THRONES STAR ON PLAYING WOMEN IN TROUSERS AND WHY WE NEED WOMEN MAKING FILMS

From eluding Nazis in The Diary Of Anne Frank to wielding an axe in Game Of Thrones, Ellie Kendrick has built her career playing the kind of complex female characters we don’t see nearly enough of onscreen. We caught up with the actor, writer and all-round badass to find out about her latest project, The Levelling, a heart-wrenching gem of an indie film in which she plays Clover, a veterinary student who returns to her family home in Somerset after the unexpected death of her brother.

DIVA: What can you tell us about Clover?

ELLIE: Clover was a character that I instantly fell in love with. The fear of returning home to a family and a past that hasn’t been dealt with – these are things which members of the queer community might empathise with. Or might not recognise at all! But either way, I hope they’ll be moved by it.
