Ruth Wilson: How I Got Here

"I have a restless mind, I think I'm searching always," Ruth Wilson tells us, when we ask what motivates her. For someone who is open about how shy she was growing up, it's perhaps surprising to find that fear is a driving force for the actress - particularly when it comes to her career choices.

Ruth Wilson teases His Dark Materials season 3 release date

His Dark Materials is one of many fantasy shows to come over the past couple of years. Based on the bestselling books by Philip Pullman, the series follows orphan girl Lyra Belacqua as she goes on a quest that begins as a simple rescue mission but grows into a dimension-hopping journey spanning multiple worlds. Yes, there are talking polar bears and shapeshifting daemon animal companions, but there are also scenes that take place in our world, here in the 21st century. It’s a pretty wild story, and the show has been doing a solid job of adapting Pullman’s books.

Official UK Trailer for 'True Things' Starring Ruth Wilson & Tom Burke

"You need to find your tribe." Picturehouse has unveiled an official UK trailer for True Things, an indie drama that first premiered at the 2021 Venice Film Festival last fall. It also played at the Toronto, London, and Stockholm Film Festivals last year. The film follows a young woman living on the fringes of society who becomes intoxicated by a stranger who overwhelms her quiet life. She lives in a small town on the water in the UK, and is lonely and just wants to meet a nice man. But she ends up falling for a complete asshole, and the film is supposed to be a lesson in how this can happen and how women need to watch out. But it's just painful. Ruth Wilson stars with Tom Burke, Hayley Squires, Elizabeth Rider, Frank McCusker, and Ann Firbank. I saw this in Venice and did not like it much. But that's just my own take. Give it a look.

Ruth Wilson On His Dark Materials’ Final Season: ‘I Was Ready To Leave’ – Exclusive

If you want to talk about perfect casting choices of recent years, look no further than the actor chosen to take on the delicious role of Mrs. Coulter in the BBC’s adaptation of His Dark Materials. In the pages of Philip Pullman’s acclaimed fantasy books, Marisa Coulter was a fascinatingly complex piece of work – manipulative, powerful, and ice-cold, with a mysterious past and the smallest flicker of humanity bubbling deep under the surface. And across the first two seasons of the TV adaptation, she’s been perfectly portrayed by Ruth Wilson – who’s played so many shades of the character across her screen time, and still has more to delve into.
