See a promo here:

Rachel talks about her new gothic romance My Cousin Rachel in which she stars alongside Sam Claflin.

 “When I first read the script I asked the director about my character and did she or didn’t she murder her husband?  He said, ‘I don't know. It's a mystery.’ So I had to make a decision on what she was up to in order to play her but I didn’t ever tell anyone on set. She could be a misunderstood modern woman or a manipulative femme fatale poisoner.”

She also reveals that the stallion she rode in the movie had been trained on Game of Thrones

“It had had been taught to ‘die,’ when the left rein was pulled so when I finished a scene and pulled on the left rein he did an elegant collapse on top of me. It wasn’t un-painful! It was okay but there was a horrible silence on set until everyone realised I was alright.”

Catch the full episode tonight at 21:00 on BBC Brit (DStv 120).
