Jane Austen: Behind Closed Doors, BBC2
Lucy’s dad wanted her to be a scientist: ‘My dad said I’d never earn a living with a history degree, so I am very pleased to say: “Ha ha!”’
Lucy married architect Mark Hines in 2011. The pair met while working for the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.
Lucy has always loved dressing up in historic costumes: ‘I was director of the cub scouts pantomime – I always took the starring role!’
