The Road Less Travelled podcast is now available, as previously announced. Holliday talks about The Illustrated Mom as of when she felt she would be an actress for a living, with only 14; remembering when she started acting at 5; how to manage different accents; the short movie Home and Tell it to the Bees and much more! The coat Holly is wearing is available to buy here for 725£.

What is the power of diverse story telling? What happens when an actor gets lost in character? Holiday Grainger and I talk all things performative, personal and where the two intersect. It’s another @belstaff Road Less Travelled for you and my conversation this week is with an incredibly talented actor who I first met in another life. Literally! Listen now on your favourite podcast platforms.

Enjoy the full podcast here or here and a short video release and their caps in our gallery.



 



Preparing for The Capture allowed the actress to indulge her own interest in police work, as she spent time shadowing the homicide department at the Met to broaden her knowledge of the force (“I was excited, thinking, ‘I’m going to solve a murder case!’”). Grainger was so immersed in this on-the-beat experience that she “didn’t want to let it go”, and yet being at Hendon failed to match her expectations. “What shocked me was just how corporate it felt, this open-plan office with all this hot-desking was quite business-like,” she says. “I found it really interesting that as you get higher up in the ranks, the more like a CEO you become.”

Holliday Grainger is having a massive moment right now in BBC show The Capture. But the actor has impressed us in everything from period dramas to fairytale retellings. Here are six of her best roles…

Holliday Grainger is currently confusing the whole nation in her new BBC surveillance thriller, The Capture. She plays the ambitious and curious DI Rachel Carey, who’s trying to solve a kidnapping case in a world of false news and fake evidence. If you haven’t even watched the first episode yet, you should probably catch up (no pressure).

The show’s success has got the internet asking: who is Holliday Grainger? And what TV shows and films has Grainger been in before?

We’re predicting big things for the Manchester-born actor, especially after her refreshingly raw performance in this year’s indie hit film Animals. So we decided to take a look back at all the shows and films that she’s absolutely nailed her roles in.

Great Expectations 2012

Like many before her, Grainger’s breakthrough role was thanks to an adaptation of a Charles Dickens’ book. Starring alongside Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes, she played Estella in Great Expectations, which she has described as being her perfect role.

“In the novel you never see it from Estella’s point of view, throughout it’s like you’re watching her. And so it’s only really at the end that you figure out exactly why she’s become who she is,” she told the Irish Independent.

“It’s such a complex history of emotional damage really, and that kind of fascinates me. It’s such a deep level of hurt and anger and how she’s managed to restrain that and still maintain that kind of composure, I’ve always found her fascinating.”

Cinderella 2012

Grainger’s next big film role came in 2015’s Cinderella as one of the step sisters, Anastasia, alongside actors Cate Blanchett and Lily James.

“I’ve had a lot of fun in my posh period bitchy corsets,” she told What’s On TV, talking about the role. “I enjoy playing the slightly haughty, flirty bitches. It’s an outlet for something I don’t like to be in real life.”

Holliday Grainger plays Rachel Carey in The Capture.

Please complete the sentence: “DI Rachel Carey is…”
…a young Detective Inspector who’s just been promoted. Rachel’s on the fast track scheme for graduates within the police force.

She’s seen a lot very quickly, and we join the series with Carey having just been promoted to DI in Homicide, after a spell in Counter Terror. That’s the department which has all the money and resources thrown at it, which is apparently true in real life as well. Homicide gets not so much, so she’s a fish out of water at the beginning, trying to prove her worth to the really experienced people around her.
Rachel’s ambitious and focused – she’s definitely career-hungry.
