THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT:
One of the UK’s most successful writer/performers – Julian Fellowes - talks about his huge back catalogue of writing hits not to mention numerous stage, TV and film appearances as an actor. Julian is in conversation with Douglas Rae who cast Julian as the legendary Lord Kilwillie in the hit BBC1 series Monarch of the Glen.
Julian Fellowes or, to give him his correct title, Julian Alexander Kitchener-Fellowes, Baron Fellowes of West Stafford DL, is an English actor, novelist, film director and screenwriter, and a Conservative peer of the House of Lords. Fellowes is primarily known as the author of several Sunday Times best-seller novels; for the screenplay for the film Gosford Park, which won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay in 2002; and as the creator, writer and executive producer of the multiple award-winning ITV series Downton Abbey. The evening will touch on all of these - and of course much more - illustrated by film clips.
Douglas Rae, founder of Ecosse Films, lives in Lurgashall and is producing a new Profumo Affair series for BBC1 and a major new series on Josephine and Napoleon based on books by Kate Williams and Andrew Roberts, both of whom also speak at this year’s Festival.
