Because I've worked on The Hour I've grown quite attached to the 1950s!!

I love the feminine structured dresses and the hairstyles!

The make-up was amazing too ...You can never go wrong with red lipstick! :)


My music taste is very eclectic but, anything by Sam Cooke always puts me in a good mood :)


I think Imelda Staunton is incredible and Helena Bonham Carter has to be one of my favourites, because I find her so captivating to watch.





Vera Drake. I was so touched by that film, it's what made me want to become an actress! I would love to work on a British film next!!

TV Show

I watch too much film and TV to just pick one but I love Dr Who! Also, E4 have recently been bringing out a lot of new exciting things to watch!

The Hour series is now available on DVD. For news and updates follow Lisa on Twitter @Lisagreenwood20
