Buring reunites with Macfadyen

MyAnna Buring was reunited with Matthew Macfadyen for Epic

MyAnna Buring has said it was like working with an "old friend" when she reunited with her Ripper Street co-star Matthew Macfadyen for the big screen.

The actress shot Epic, due out next year, with Matthew in Georgia, after filming BBC One drama Ripper Street together.

"It's been great, lovely," she said of working with Matthew on the movie, the story of an English filmmaker who is hired to direct a huge production in the Caucasus region of Europe.

"It's like working with an old mate the second time around so it's fun."

MyAnna, who attended the First Light Awards this week, to celebrate the next generation of British filmmakers, is about to start working on a second series of Ripper Street, which has been recommissioned despite complaints it was too violent.

She plays brothel keeper Long Susan in the drama, set in London's East End in the aftermath of the Jack The Ripper murders, alongside Matthew as Inspector Edmund Reid

"Victorian times were incredibly violent. That's an element the show picked up," MyAnna said. "It would have been criticised if it hadn't."

There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
