Jodhi, explains why she was interested to take on the role of Jean: "She's a fascinating character. At the start, she is a young woman whose life is cut short when she endures the horrors of this crime.
She goes from that to an older, wiser person who is able to express exceptional compassion.""It's all so plausible. "In this episode, he makes you aware that although Jean's words are compassionate, they are also vengeful.
"It's such an incredible, really powerful screenplay," says the actress. It was quite simply one of the best pieces of writing I'd ever read.
It blew me away." In the final instalment of this series of The Street, Jodhi plays Jean, a woman who is still suffering after a terrible crime was perpetrated against her family many years ago.
"It was very uncomfortable and the spikes on the fish tore my skin but if these photos make people aware of our responsibilities to the next generation — to conserve fish stocks — then it’s worthwhile.” Other actors who took part in the J Sheekey Oyster Bar Fishlove Theatre Series to call for greater marine protection in UK waters included Dougray Scott, Chipo Chung from Doctor Who, Haydn Gwynne, Ade Edmondson and Tom Bateman of Jekyll And Hyde .
Jean's compassion for Paul comes from the fact that she identifies with someone who has also experienced a loss. What she says to Paul is ambivalent, and Jimmy embraces the essential paradox of her emotions.
That empathy enables her to reach out to Paul, although she quite naturally has a very complex mix of emotions towards him."Jodhi emphasises that this sort of ambiguity is what distinguishes Jimmy's work. "She says something that absolves Paul, but at the same time condemns him to feel the very same fear of loss that she has experienced.
Jodhi will shortly be seen in a number of films including Flashbacks Of A Fool, playing Daniel Craig's childhood lover and alongside Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber in Defiance set in the Second World War.
Between them they have picked up every award going but Mark Rylance and Emma Thompson had their hands full with their latest co-stars. "They are also limited and I believe we must create great wildlife parks in the oceans where no human pursues the fish in order to sustain their livelihood and our own.” Thompson, 56 — whose film awards include a best actress Oscar for Howards End — and her actor husband Greg Wise, 49, got to grips with two black scabbardfish.
She sees a possibility of finding some closure when she encounters Paul (Toby Kebbell), the man who committed the crime when he was a minor and has now been released from prison.
The actress, who has shone in works such as Friends And Crocodiles, The Amazing Mrs Pritchard, The Other Boleyn Girl, Tipping The Velvet, Daniel Deronda, Warriors, Aristocrats, and The Mayor Of Casterbridge, expands on what drew her to this piece.
