Helen McCrory got the shivers filming The Woman In Black sequel Angel Of Death - because she was freezing cold.

The star of Harry Potter and Peaky Blinders appears with Jeremy Irvine in Hammer Films' follow-up to the big screen adaptation of Susan Hill's best-selling novel about a haunted house.

Helen revealed: "It's very, very cold! I hadn't worked out that when you're doing a horror film it's never set in Hawaii. It's never, 'She wakes up in Hawaii, with a cocktail in her hand laughingly she runs into the blue lagoon...' No, no, no!

"So if you flatten any part of Britain and turn down the temperature and cover it in rain, we'd probably be filming there, so it's very, very cold, and all at night.

"But it was fantastic, I've never done a horror film and to do a Hammer Horror was great."

The 45-year-old actress has also just filmed A Little Chaos, directed by Alan Rickman.

She said: "It was a great antithesis to A Little Chaos, which is a seventeenth century love story with Kate Winslet and Matthias Schoenaerts, so it was a perfect balance."

In your public life, you feel like you always have to explain yourself to colleagues. This becomes incredibly draining. To add insult to injury, you've had difficulty finding an appropriate job for your level of expertise. Instead of holding out for the perfect opportunity, you should take a low level job that yields regular pay.More
