The actress explained: ‘Sex Education is so momentous as a concept, as a show, and the cast are phenomenal.

She explained: ‘I’m very attracted and seduced by the idea of writing a film and conceiving something, being there at the conception of a story, working at it, seeing it through and then choosing a team.’ 

Emma’s next project is her titular role in Emily Brontë biopic, which will follow the story of the famous author, best known for her iconic novel Wuthering Heights.  

Discussing the feminist value of taking on period drama roles, Emma insisted: ‘We don’t learn enough about women in history.

‘And when you read history books the only facts and figures you have about women are who they married and how many children they had or didn’t have.’

The upcoming film will see Emma join the likes of Line Of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar, Ammonite star Gemma Jones and The Invisible Man actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen.  

Dunkirk’s Fionn Whitehead, The Musketeers’ Alexandra Dowling and The Spanish Princess star Amelia Gething complete the line-up. 

Born in 1818 in West Yorkshire, Emily Brontë was the fifth of six children, and spent most of her short life in the moorland village of Haworth, where her Irish father Patrick was curate.

But life dealt Emily a series of terrible blows as she lost her mother when she was three, then two older sisters when she was seven.

Following her trauma, the novelist retreated into a fantasy world, writing stories and poetry with her siblings. 

The writer poured her suffering and passion into Wuthering Heights, a wrenching love story as raw as the Yorkshire Moors on which it’s set.   

The 21st Edition of Hunger is on newsstands Friday 17th September and available to order online now.
