Claire Foy leaps onto the bench opposite me, momentarily forgetting she’s wearing a teeny miniskirt. ‘Uggh,’ she exclaims passionately as she tugs at her skirt, doing her best to maintain some dignity. ‘There have been quite a few tricky moments with this outfit and I hate my legs. I can’t wait for the Seventies to start so I can get some trousers on.’
We are on set for Claire’s latest television show, White Heat. She plays a strident feminist called Charlotte in the drama, which follows seven flatmates from their rebellious Sixties student days up to the present. She’s also sporting red hair, which she likes more than the miniskirts. ‘I’ve always wanted to go red so it was great to have to do it for a job,’ she says. ‘But it’s only now that I’ve discovered my hair grows very quickly, so I have to get it dyed ginger every other week.’ Then she laughs so raucously she needs to tug at her skirt again.
