Found a small interview where we get to know a bit more of Holliday and her favorite music:
Holliday graced us with a virtual live by BIFA where she and Micheal Ward stated the list of nominees for this years BIFA awards. She also gave a small interview afterwards, which you can watch below:
EDIT: A new interview has surfaced which you can see here. Screencaps also now available on the gallery.
The actor, 32, who starred in Strike and The Capture, lives in Devon with her boyfriend, fellow actor Harry Treadaway, 36
When I’m filming, the day begins early – usually at 5.30am – but if I’m not working, I get up at 9am. That’s the difficult thing about being an actor; your routine can shift very quickly. I make coffee, toast with Marmite and avocado, and a smoothie. Then I’ll put together a to-do list. Some weeks I feel like an incredibly organised businesswoman, others I’m chasing my tail.
My most recent project was reading the audiobook of journalist Dolly Alderton’s debut novel, Ghosts, about modern dating. I’ve never been ‘ghosted’, but in my earlier 20s, I had my fair share of questionable romances. I found the book incredibly amusing, even on the third reading.
Since lockdown, life has changed so much. [Holliday is pregnant with her first child.] A lot of my jobs have been moved to 2021, so I spent most of it in Devon, where we rent a place. Having extra time together has been really lovely; the best thing was being forced to be static. I developed an obsession with the vintage furniture website Vinterior. I also got into cooking more. We ordered a veg box with lots of lovely seasonal produce, and I mastered butternut squash and chickpea curry.
Metro.co.uk: Holliday Grainger on whether she thinks Cormoran and Robin should get together in new series of Strike
For now, Holly has given two small interviews on the return of The Strike on BBC ONE. And seems like she is a bit conflicted if she’s pro or against a Cormoran & Robin (loveydovey) relationship! What’s your opinion? Let us know via Twitter here.
Holliday Grainger isn’t as on board with the idea of Strike and Robin getting together as fans of the hit BBC One series are. Robin Ellacott, played by Holliday, and her boss Cormoran Strike (Tom Burke) have had a simmering tension between them for the last three seasons of the Strike crime drama, based on JK Rowling’s novels penned under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith. In the new story Strike: Lethal White – which will air later this month – those feelings haven’t gone away despite Robin’s marriage to Matthew (Kerr Logan). While this may be good news for Robin/Strike shippers who love a bit of angst, the actress thinks it would be better if they didn’t act on their feelings.
We finally have a date for Lethal White release!! The 4th book finally hits our TV with the first two episodes airing on August 30th and 31. The following 2 episodes will air on the following weekend September 6th and 7th, for a total of 4 episodes.
Tom Burke (and Holliday Grainger!!) will return as the private detective Cormoran Strike in a new BBC One four-part thriller.
As announced via our Twitter, Holliday and the cast/ crew of The Capture participated on Comic Con at Home 2020 and had a very nice chat for a little more than 30 minutes via Youtube!
We have transcript the full Holly’s part interview for her fans to read but you can also see it on the official Youtube channel. This interview was promoted by the streaming channel Peacock which brings The Capture exclusively to the US.
