2012, 90 minutes

Period Drama Making Of A Lady is an adaptation of a ‘forgotten’ classic novel by celebrated playwright and author Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, Little Lord Fauntleroy) by acclaimed writer Kate Brooke (Mr Selfridge, The Forsyte Saga, Wired). The one off film, will be produced by Runaway Fridge TV.   ITV is delighted to announce JOANNA LUMLEY (Absolutely Fabulous, Marple) is to play the role of matriarch Lady Maria Byrne in Making Of A Lady, coming soon to ITV1.   She will be joined by LINUS ROACHE (Titanic, Batman Begins) who assumes the role of her nephew and wealthy widower, Lord James Walderhurst. James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas and soon to be seen in Hitchcock) will play Walderhurst’s unscrupulous nephew Captain Alec Osborn. LYDIA WILSON (The Crimson Petal and White and About Time, Richard Curtis' soon to be released new comedy) will take the lead role of the film’s heroine, Emily. HASINA HAQUE (Kidnap and Ransom, Casualty) will take the role of Captain Alec’s exotic wife Hester.   The classic tale tells the story of the well born, educated but penniless Emily who grew up hoping she would marry for love, but has come to realise that her priority must be survival. Opening in late Victorian London, initially in a shabby part of town, The Making of a Lady depicts genteel Emily struggling to make a living.
