Anna Popplewell Featured In 'The Actresses Now' Exhibition

Anna Popplewell is just one of many English actresses to be featured in the National Portrait Gallery‘s The Actresses Now Exhibition.

The 22-year-old thespian is featured amongst portraits of Dame Judi Dench, Dame Helen Mirren, and Vanessa Redgrave in the complementary showing next to The First Actresses.

The display highlights the talent and achievement of British women currently performing in theatre, television and film, all of whom owe a debt to the pioneering first actresses.

Anna tells the NPG about the first actresses, “Sarah Siddons and Eliza Haywood – Sarah Siddons was by all accounts a phenomenal actress. I would have loved to have seen her Lady Macbeth… and the ‘unsex me here’ speech must have played interestingly in a cultural climate that was so heatedly debating what was and wasn’t the ‘proper’ way for a woman to behave!”
