Stars share tales of Miriam

Western Daily Press - - UK & World News -

THE cast of Call The Midwife have shared the on-set an­tics of the “un­pre­dictable” and “out­ra­geous” Miriam Mar­golyes.

Jenny Agut­ter, Stephen McGann and He­len Ge­orge are among those re­turn­ing for the eighth se­ries of the BBC One show.

Vet­eran ac­tress Mar­golyes, best know for her por­trayal of Pro­fes­sor Sprout in the Harry Pot­ter film se­ries, joined the cast of the drama for its Christ­mas spe­cial.

The 77-year-old reprised her role as Sis­ter Mil­dred, a “forth­right and in­de­fati­ga­ble sis­ter from the Or­der”, in the first episode only of the new se­ries.

Jenny Agut­ter, who plays Sis­ter Juli­enne, de­scribed Mar­golyes as “an ab­so­lute love and very un­pre­dictable”.

“You don’t know what is go­ing to hap­pen next or which out­ra­geous com­ments you will hear.”

Stephen McGann, who plays Dr Pa­trick Turner, also spoke of his time work­ing with Mar­golyes. He said of her be­hav­iour: “It’s not for a fam­ily au­di­ence, but I think she is ge­nius.”

The eighth se­ries of Call The Midwife con­tin­ues on BBC One.
