    Brenda is one of Britain's finest character actresses, famous for playing her roles with social realism and warmth, wit and humour - characters her audience empathise with. She has the same warmth and humour off screen too; a wonderfully down-to-earth person with a fascinating history. Told with sparkling wit and engaging honesty, Mixed Fancies is the compelling story of her journey from the Plains of Waterloo to the National Theatre and on to television, Hollywood and stardom.

    The story of a farm horse sold from Devon into the mire, wire and machine guns of the Great War of 1914-1918 brings together a stellar cast, including Timothy Spall, Brenda Blethyn and Bob Hoskins, with music and songs from some of the UK's finest folk musicians. This drama was directed by John Tams, who was nominated for an Olivier Award for his work on the phenomenally successful War Horse stage epic at the National Theatre ['the theatrical event of the decade' ( Times)] and which also inspired the Steven Spielberg film.

    Everyone has a story. The following interview is taken from the best of Andrew Denton's award-winning Enough Rope series. Brenda Blethyn, convinced she'd be laughed out of town if she followed her dreams, remained a secretary for 10 years before plucking up the courage to enroll in acting school. Three decades later, with Oscar nominations for Secrets and Lies and Little Voice under her belt, she's well on her way to becoming an English national treasure.
