Ruth Wilson 'Couldn't Say No' To 'His Dark Materials' Role!

Ruth Wilson strikes a pose at the global premiere of her brand new HBO and BBC series His Dark Materials held at BFI Southbank on Tuesday (October 15) in London, England.

The 37-year-old actress Dafne Keen, Ruta Gedmintas, Daniel Frogson, Will Keen, Simon Manyonda, Clarke Peters and Mat Fraser, as well as series writers Sir Philip Pullman and Jack Thorne.

Ruth Wilson recently expressed that she “couldn’t say no” to playing Mrs Coulter in His Dark Materials because the character was described as a “cesspit of moral filth.”

Dafne, who plays young heroine Lyra in the series, also opened up about playing opposite Ruth: “You quickly forget that Ruth is a lovely woman. She genuinely does look like a psychopath,” she said. “But when it’s a very intense scene and we’re getting too much into a mood ourselves, we smile through it. We joke. And when we cut, I smile so that people can see that I’m not mentally scarred for the rest of my life.”

The show premieres on both HBO and BBC in November – Watch the trailer here!

FYI: Ruth is wearing Emilia Wickstead.
